“Ok, motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

I liked the pool was heated! The rooms are away from the lobby so you have quite a walk or a short drive if you need something or to go to breakfast! The pool only has 3 lounge chairs. The breakfast is good!

You're getting a place to put your head and a shower. The hotel is out dated and rooms crusted with the scent of sand and sunscreen. The beds are not comfortable. Most rooms have a sliding glass door that you can't beat leaving open and smelling the fresh air. The beach is across the street and location good (no beach view from hotel). A few great bars and restaurants close by. Bike rentals near the check in office and a decent pool. Overall a sub-standard stay at a great location. I stay here often for work.

Yes, it is old and outdated. Lots of noise. We were on the 3rd floor. The breakfast surprised me, it was much better than I expected. Staff was friendly. Location was a 7 to 10 minute walk to the beach. I drove and on our 2nd day found the free parking. Lots of shops close by. Looking out our sliding glass door was a great view. Like the parking under the building.

Room Tip: Try to get on the top floor.

The hotel is old. The hallways look like something out of a 3rd world country! Scary!!! Floors are concrete in the halls. Outside looks ok... Nicely landscaped... The outside gives you the impression that the hotel is nice... Not! Once you enter the hotel it is old school and run down. Like I said poorly lit hallways with concrete floors. Rooms are old, bedding is old, couch is old, carpet is old... And at close to 200.00 per night for the cheapest room you would think they would update the decor. They do have a flat screen tv with cable channels that many do not work. The room WAS clean. They obviousily have decent cleaning staff. The overall look is depressing and tired and not worth 200.00 a night. It reminds me of an old motel 6 or old days inn. The pool is great!! Beautiful area, heated pool, beautiful landscaping...

One stupid, stupid thing is that you check in at one building and then have to drive to the actual hotel!!! What??? That means there is NO front desk to walk down to and breakfast is a long walk off! It is a good walk to just get a donut! While the walk is pretty it does get old and should you carry something back to your room it is a chore.

I chose this hotel cause it is close to the beach. Bottom line is that unless you have a room ON the ocean you will be driving to park anyhow or biking. You could walk to the beach but it is a good long walk... I am surprised they charge this much but it is Hilton Head! That is why they can charge it.

I wish i had spent the extra money for a decent room. We spent tons on food. An extra 100.00 would have gotten us a room at hilton head Omni...

I would highly suggest you look elsewhere. While the check in people were nice and housekeeping nice we would not stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We were in Hilton Head for 1 night and day. We are Choice Priviliges members and stay at their hotels when possible. We got there at night and decided to check the Quality Inn because it was rated a little higher on Tripadvisor and was a little bit cheaper, but the customer reviews were mixed on both hotels. The outside of the hotel and lobby looked good. However, when we checked the room, it was not very good so we decided to go on and check out the Comfort Inn. The staff at the front desk was very nice. We checked in and drove to the hotel which is about 2 blocks from the office and breakfast area. The room was better than the Quality Inn but was still just an OK hotel room but was clean. I could not get on the internet and called the front desk. They could not help me but gave me an 800 number to call and they helped me get connected. However, after I got connected, it was not the best and certain things I could not do and had to wait until I got somewhere else to send what I wanted to send. I thought the room was a bit overpriced. However, the next morning we walked to get breakfast (which was good ) and the property was very pretty with fountains and flowers and walkways. We asked at the desk how to get to the beach and it was only a nice 5 minute walk so the location was very good which is why i assume it was priced higher. It was close to a lot of shopping and places to eat. Overall, I would stay there again.

We arrived late at night. The night person was very kind to us (which is very important to us when we travel), and we found the price to be very very good. We did find the property confusing to navigate, but it was late and we were quite tired after a long drive. In fact, we found all of Hilton Head very confusing to navigate at night! The property is quite large with some really nice features. We were a little taken aback by how nice it was outside. Anyway, the hotel room was average. We found it to be clean enough, and although the hotel is a little dated, it was okay. When we woke up in the morning we felt a little stuffy and the room was musty smelling. Maybe the A/C filter was dirty or something? All in all, we wouldn't choose this as our first pick hotel if we go back to HH, but for the price it was certainly hard to beat for the area.
