Best location close to shops and restaurants. Just across the street is a beautiful water front park with several restaurants. We ate on the porch at the Q rest. Excellent location, food and service. For all Vietnam veterans see the plaque in the park thanking us for our service. First one I have ever seen.

Please note that vehicles with Purple Heart plates get to park free anywhere in town.

Great one to two day visits. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Excellent location, easy city to walk around. Wonderful water front park across the street. First f...

Green Features: Very clean, and well kept. Recycle, windos the open and lock in that position so you can avoid using the air conditioners, if you'd like.

The Best Western Sea Island is a very nice place to stay. It is located in an area that is very pretty, and has some nice shopping within walking distance. The water front right across the street is very nice, and very well kept. The area is fairly quiet, and the rooms were very clean. the beds were very comfy, and we had no issues at all. Would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

Perfect place to stay! Close to everything, view of the bay from the front and fantastic rooms. Would stay here again if ever in Beaufort. Couldn't ask for a more comfortable and well appointed hotel for the cost. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a wonderful and affordable vacation.

This is a great location to be in for sightseeing in Beaufort. We hiked all over town, to the churches, to the bridge, and to the downtown. Breakfast is convenient and nice. You can park your car and hit a lot of the town by foot. Parking is not easy to find in downtown Beaufort. Note for some folks - there is no elevator.

Room Tip: Request first floor if you can't do stairs. There is no elevator.

We couldn't figure out why this motel is so highly rated. It's a very ordinary chain motel, a bit gussied up with nicer toiletries and softer beds. Otherwise, our view was of the parking lot, our room was small, the bathroom was cramped and nothing beyond OK and the service wasn't great. I asked for extra towels, was asked how many people we had (4) and were told we could have ONE more set (there were 3 in the room) IF someone went and got them. Skipped breakfast, so no comments on that. It was fine, if you're expecting a regular modest chain motel, but nothing special. Great location.

This hotel is located within walking distance of the bay, restaraunts, and even a place to get a carriage tour of historic homes. They have friendly staff as well. I would recommend this as the place to stay in Beaufort.

What a wonderful experience to stay here. Personnel, services, room, everything was top notch. Go there with no hesitation. The city of Beaufort and the surrounding area abounds with great history, great food, and relaxation.
