“bugs, stains, holes, $$ oh my”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

we entered the room and upon turning on the light there was a huge cockroach on the wall. I live in SC and this is in SC so you can call it a Palmetto Bug if you want; its a cockroach and some bug spray will kill them. During out stay we saw 2 more in the dresser drawers (on our pj's; i had to sleep in skivies) and 2 on floor. There was a large recently patched hole on the wall by the bathroom at head height; Not even painted over; was white spackel on yellow paint (very 70's deco in these rooms). Not even an attempt to sand it; was still soft to the touch. Halls are about 90 degrees and damp. Numerous stains on the carpet throughout. The walls in the bathroom was cracking and the paint/plaster peeling off around tub. The overall look was tired and worn out. Now, we were in a wedding party so we got a group rate; $130 a night...really...for this type of nonsense? Need to check the Inn At Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge for how to run a hotel (less than $120 in the summer at that). Will never stay here again. Horrible.

We chose this because of price and location. The location was good for the beach, not too far of a walk, or can use a shuttle that works for tips that is very convenient. The hotel is dated, but clean. Our beds were very comfortable and we had a lagoon view. This was a long mother-daughter weekend and we walked to Coligny Plaza for our meals, all of them good. I prefer beach front, but this was a good deal. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was included, filling, but not outstanding. Would stay here again.

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 $
