4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Big enough rooms for my wife and I, along with two kids. We also had a balcony where we stored our bicycles which worked out very well. Hotel was right next to the amazing biking paths. A shortish walk to the beach. Rooms were in decent shape, no complaints from the wife. We had to call the front desk a couple of times for towels and they responded fairly quickly. Two downers, continental breakfast was in a separate building and was a small walk. And there was also a guy by the elevator that was part of a time share company that was pushing free activities on us without ever really mentioning a 90 minute meeting with the company. I really don't like the idea of the hotel allowing that.

I felt comfortable in this hotel. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Was it fancy? No, but it definitely served its purpose. We heard no noises from other patrons. Yes, the front desk and breakfast are in a separate building about a block away, but the weather was beautiful and the walk is pretty. The pool was nice. It was about 2-3 blocks from the beach. Staff was friendly.

The property is not ocean front but requires a bit of a walk. We booked a room with a higher rate that had a pool view but got a view of the trees, they did let us check in super early though. Beware of the concierge at the lobby of the actual rooms he actually tries to get you to buy timeshares. Breakfast was included and was average. Rooms need a little updating and hotel is pet friendly. If you don't have a dog don't stay on the second floor.

My husband and I were on vacation at Hilton Head. We shared a standard room at the Comfort Inn. The room was clean, all the amenities were available. This include microwave and mini refrigerator. There were double full size beds. One mattress was to soft for me, but the other was firm. I'm not sure if that was intentional. We did have some noisy people above us, but we figured this could be expected, because people were on vacation.The set up was a little different. The service desk, fitness center and dinning area was located in a separate location from the rooms, you had to walk maybe a block to eat breakfast. We drove over for breakfast. On a rainy morning, this is not good, I prefer being able to eat in the same building. A free breakfast was included with the stay. I was satisfied with the selections. You could choose from waffles(you prepare) which include blueberry batter. There were choices of cereal, a variety of muffins, bagels, instant grits, boil and scrambled eggs, sausage and assorted fruit. Your average beverage drinks, coffee, juice and milk were also available. You could really save money by taking advantage of the included breakfast (I just wish they had added bacon). The service clerks were friendly, and acknowledged your presence. The hotel was located conveniently, about two blocks from the beach. It's a nice walk, with the exception of having to move out of the paths of the bike riders. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again.

As we made a last minute decision to go to Hilton Head island for the 4th of July, the Comfort Inn was just about the only thing available. Having stayed at hotels around the world, all different star ratings, this was by far the worst ever, and I should not have booked this hotel - I would NOT recommend it to anyone. First of all, it is an old hotel, not in the best shape. The front desk is not adjacent to the hotel, so you have to walk there for breakfast, check in and check out. The card keys never worked on the outside doors. Spots on the sofa and carpet, etc. From inside my room I could hear every door slam in the halls as well as every conversation, yelling, talking, screaming, etc. everything at all hours. I could also hear every patio sliding door open and bang close very loudly. On the first night, we had to call the front desk to report screaming and fighting in the hall in the middle of the night. "F" bombs flying every other word. Nothing was done and it continued off and on through the night. It was awful, so we didn't get any sleep and were very, very tired on the 4th. I spoke to the front desk representative the next morning, and reluctantly they did take off half of the price for that night (we should not have been charged for this night at all). Interestingly enough they told us about another incident involving a fight on the 4th floor, on another night. I was not surprised. It is also a "pet friendly" hotel. I love animals, but not the barking all night long and during the day when people would leave them in the room and head out for the day. Plus the room smelled of animals covered by fragrance spray. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. It was a very bad experience. However, Hilton Head is a wonderful place to visit. Just not the Comfort Inn.

Room Tip: Don't book a room here !

We have been coming to this hotel for many years for a 3 -4 day get-a-way. It is nothing fancy, but convenient to South Forest Beach and has clean rooms. 1/2mile walk to the beach. Better yet bring or rent bikes. Great place to leisurely ride around the island. The hotel is clean and quiet, which sometimes can be a problem with beach hotels. It has a nice pool and usually has an alligator and turtles in one of the surrounding ponds, which is cool. Again, I stress the use of a bike to get round unless you want to drive to some of the other parts of the island.

Even thought this was not right on the beach, I enjoyed walking everywhere I needed to go. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was OK-waffles, fruit, pastries and such. Would return again if needed.

Room Tip: First floor is for pet owners only, so ask for a higher floor if you don't have a pet.
