“Great Location and Nice Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2009

The hotel is clearly aging, but it is clean. I appreciated the very kind desk clerk who went out of his way to help us and the lady who runs the breakfast buffet.

The location is very convenient. You can walk all around the downtown area or get on the road and explore the surrounding areas.

We were wholly surprised by this hotel. Our room overlooked the harbor. We are bed snobs, and the mattress was great! Large mini fridge in room, which was nice for to keep leftovers. Staff was great, friendly, and helpful! With outdoor room entry, we were expecting a somewhat rundown motel. But instead, it had the feel of a great old hotel that could be in New Orleans or Mobile with great wrought iron trim. The continental b'fast was great with belgium waffle maker, comparable to a Hampton Inn.

This hotel is close the the Marina, restaurants and shops in downtown Beaufort. Ample parking if you are not pulling a 27 foot boat like I was.

We just returned from a wonderful Vacation in Beaufort, SC. Among the many wonderful things we enjoyed was our stay at the Best Western Sea Island. The location, in the historic district, is ideal. The room was immaculate and the staff was friendly and helpful. It costs a little more than other chain hotels in the ares, but it is well worth the price,.

My husband and I travel I-95 from Jacksonville to North Carolina several times a year. We always wondered about Beaufort, SC so we decided to take a side trip and spend the night in Beaufort. Although we didn't have enough time to explore all we wanted, our short stay was very satisfying because of our experiences with the Best Western Sea Island Inn. We had reservations and the front desk was prepared for us. We were welcomed by the front desk and the person proceeded to talk a bit about Beaufort and hand us several bits of useful information. The room was nicely decorated and clean. The front desk called shortly after check-in to see if we were satisfied with our room. The location is ideal. It is just a block or two from downtown and across from the water and marina. The grounds are very inviting with its moss-covered trees. The swimming pool looked clean and well kept. They have a very complete continental breakfast and if you go after 7:30 you get eggs, sausage and waffles in addition to a variety of fruit, cereals and yogurt. The really nice thing about the breakfast is the atmosphere. When you walk into the breakfast room you feel like you are in the real south. Well-placed, comfortable furniture with fine decorative accents. The checking out process was smooth and friendly. We plan to stop again when we have more time to explore the historic city. The only negative is we are used to staying for $49-$59 along 95. The price difference is worth the total experience of the hotel and the city.

The Sea Island Inn (a Best Western Hotel) is located on the main drag in the historic district of Beaufort, South Carolina. I have stayed there for many years with family members and the location is perfect! You can walk across the street to view the water or stroll down the street to eat or shop. The hotel rooms are so clean and I have never been disappointed. The continental breakfast offers a nice variety of breakfast foods, even waffles. You can sit outside of the motel and watch traffic or view the water. The motel offers a good bargain and they have a wonderful website.

The hotel is conveniently located, just across the street from the water. You can enjoy the water view from the chairs in front of the hotel or, better yet, walk across the street and stroll though the pretty park along the shore. The staff were all genuinely friendly and very helpful. Our room was around the back and was very quiet. The room was very spacious and the pillow were great. The complementary breakfast , with make-your-own waffles, was a great way to start the day.
