“almost a five...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Spent the weekend here with my daughter and granddaughter. Close to the beach, which was a wonderful public beach within walking distance, even with a two year old. It was helpful to have a good and varied breakfast within walking distance of the hotel, at the registration/check-in building, although in bad weather it would not be as helpful and even in good weather it was crowded. The pool was pleasant, and a nice change from the beach. It would be better for families had the rooms had a microwave and mini-fridge but even so, the staff was so pleasant and helpful that alone kept this Comfort Inn in the four star range. From check in to check out, it seems as though everyone who worked here, even on a busy summer weekend, was pleasant and helpful. I witnessed several situations where staff went that second mile to help hurried and cranky customers with problems that really were not the hotels problems, then were able to turn to the next customer with a cheerful smile..Great family atmosphere...add the microwave and mini fridge and its easily 5 star! One caveat, though, be prepared to walk - beach and numerous restaurants are just a couple of blocks away, although there is a trolley, but traffic was fierce..

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Its so nice to have breakfast taken care of...it is hectic down there but still overall a great amenity. The free beach shuttle is awesome! Coligny beach is so beautiful and we had an absolute blast. So comfy at this hotel. Uber helpful staff. Will stay here again when we return to Hilton Head.

Enjoyed the "Hawaii"-like atmosphere of this hotel. It was a good value at the time we stayed and within walking distance of everything. Nice pool, walk to town and breakfast. We used a coupon we found while traveling and it made this wonderful setting and price a really memorable combination.

Room Tip: This has several floors; think about your ability to carry suitcases when choosing a room.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location could not be better, close to the beach and convenient to restaurants and shopping. We will return. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was above average.

Room Tip: Upper floors have the better view

My better half surprised me on my birthday by taking me and our two furry babies (golden retrievers) to Hilton Head for the day...seeing that its one of the few beaches that allow dogs.

After a perfect weathered day on the beach, we were having too much fun to leave and called the Comfort Inn that was referred to us by a previous employee. They were extremely accommodating (considering we had our goldens) and found us the perfect balcony room that was private and overlooking a natural area with a pond and fountain. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. It was a bit of a walk from parking to elevator to room however, nicely secluded and quiet.

The staff was great, especially James whom was quite friendly and efficient even under pressure with many people waiting to checkin and phones continuously ringing. Our coffee machine didn't function properly and James had it fixed within the hour. We will definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Balcony upgrade is definitely worth the extra $

This was our first trip to Hilton Head. The hotel was just OK in our opinion. Positives were the extremely comfy beds, quietness, cleanliness, the breakfast buffet, on site bike rental and proximity to Coligny Plaza/beach. Negatives were that our balcony door was broken so we struggled every time we wanted to open or close it, the hotel's a bit dated, no balcony furniture, there were only 4 sun loungers by the pool which seemed very strange to us in a hotel with 150 rooms. We wanted to lie by the pool but ended up sitting in upright plastic chairs instead which wasn't much fun, and also our experience with the staff at the front desk was a bit mixed. We spoke to three different staff members, two were very helpful and polite but one was moody and gave the impression that we were inconveniencing her by being there. If travelling to Hilton Head again, we would probably stay in a different hotel.
