We are doing a spring break tour of the Savannah area and stopped in Beaufort on the way. This is a well kept motel right at the edge of downtown looking out across the bay. Management is friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast is in a nice comfortable room looking out towards the bay. You can request a room... More

My family stayed here last week for our son's graduation from Parris Island. We traveled over 12 hours with a 3.5 year old and a 10 week old over night and were in desperate need of some rest. Buddy was able to get us into our room at 10am, 5 hours before we were supposed to check in. This was... More

Spent a recent long weekend at Sea Island Inn. What a delight! Southern hospitality at it's best. Perfect location for walking & enjoying the beautiful streets of historic Beaufort. Shops, restaurants, etc just steps away. Our room was very clean, & staff we encountered were all so friendly & pleasant. Service the way it used to be still exists at... More

We stayed one night here while in Beaufort. This is a great place - perfect location! Right across from the waterfront park and you can walk anywhere. The hotel was very clean. Charise provided great check in and check out service. The breakfast area was so nice - great selection of food. Definitely stay here while in this beautiful town.

We chose this hotel to stay at because of its proximity to the Marine Corps Depot on Parris Island. It was a very short and easy ride away, which put our mind at ease for getting to Marine graduation events. Room was super clean, and the hotel staff was friendly and exceptionally helpful. We were even given a packet upon... More

We were blown away! Downtown Beaufort is wonderful and it was so nice to have dinner, enjoy a band, an drinks and be so close. Breakfast was great an the service was definitely above and beyond. The staff in the dining area let me borrow a tray to take food back to our room. They were accommodating in each of... More

the staff was great. the rooms were large and clean. we should have asked for a view of the water instead of overlooking the parking lot. The complimentary breakfast is standard fare. The beaufort area is a great get away between savannah & charleston.

Also stayed for Marine Graduation. Was given a packet chock full of info about Family Day And Graduation. Adjoining rooms for the family so we could spend more time together. Blocks away from quaint shops and variety of eateries. Surrounded by water with sail boats docked. Breakfast perfect for on the run. Super clean! Beds and pillows are five star!... More
