“Great hotel with scenic view!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

Our family really enjoyed their visit to Beaufort, SC. This hotel had a perfect location where you could walk to Bay Street for lunch and dinner and shopping! Great breakfast with a wonderful lady that obviously take pride in her job.! Clean and always restocking the breakfast items!

We agree, this is a great location to explore Beaufort and all it's charms! Both Miss Emily and Miss Shirley do a wonderful job presenting and maintaining the breakfast and we couldn't be prouder of them. I will certainly let them know of you comments. Thanks and please come back!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to friends visiting the area. Good value, friendly staff, very clean rooms. We particularly enjoyed Miss Shirley who was the lovely woman who kept the complimentary breakfast items well stocked. Apparently this property is rated highly in the Best Western chain of motels and we could definitely see the extra care and attention that the management provided to the guests and the property. Well done!

I met Rose on my first stay and she was very friendly and accomodating (late arrival, looking for a decent place to grab food, accomodated me with parking in front of the lobby! World class service, Room great and a lil more then just a cold continental breakfast. I have stayed here every chance I get to come to Beaufort! Great location as well, plenty of resturants in walking distance and waterfront across the street!

Can't wait to come back again! Thanks to Rose and all the staff here!

Room Tip: Just ask they will try their best to accomodate!

We loved our stay here. Location is very close to downtown and an easy walk to look at all the beautiful homes. Everyone was very friendly and it was spotlessly clean. Great attention to detail.

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 5 years the night before heading to Fripp Island for an annual family vacation. We have always been happy with the service and room. We love the location being able to walk to the great restaurants and shops downtown. The rooms and bathrooms are small but everything is very clean and well maintained. The room decor is attractive with nice bed linens.

I stay in Best Westerns just about every week. I found this one to be of standard quality. Clean, good service, nice atmosphere, tasty breakfast. It was the location that I mostly enjoyed. We had a few fabulous meals, nice main street with shopping and a lovely waterfront.
We were lucky to be there on July 4th and got to watch fireworks across the water while sitting on a great patio, eating sushi. Can't get much better than that.
