Outstanding & friendly customer service from John at the Tiki Hut. Thank you for going out of your way for our family. Fun Fire Show for something different to do on the island. Great band & Full Moon Party.

My wife and I were met at check in by Gray who was personable, polite and genuinely interested in making sure we were welcomed properly. The property location is great and the bands were talented and fun. Service at the Tiki hut was very good and for football Saturday a GREAT place to watch a game. Having the beach a few steps away is always a bonus. Definitely would recommend this property to others.

My husband and I were looking forward to a short weekend trip in Hilton Head for a wedding. This hotel was extremely disappointing and ruined what otherwise would have been a very nice trip. I don't usually write reviews, but thought I must share our experience so others don't waste a significant amount of money to stay in a dirty and not maintained property. Below is our list of observations:

- Carpet had numerous stains in both the hallway and hotel room
- Paint in bathroom was peeling and on the verge of falling (we took pictures because this looked like health hazard)
- AC unit was extremely noisy
- Guests smoked in the stairwell numerous times. The smell of smoke was in the hallways and our bedroom.
- The restaurant on site while very trendy and decorated nicely served food that was disappointing.
- The door didn't lock/secure behind you creating a security risk
- The sheets/linens visibly need replacing
- The refrigerator was old and had some rust in it
- Management opens the hotel lot for the public to park in for a fee. This would fill up the parking lot and didn't reserve enough sports for guest parking.

The location is great, but that is certainly the only thing this hotel has going for it. If your a non smoker, definitely stay away!

We had a great time here. Room was nice and clean with easy access to the beach and pool. Patricia an employee at the hotel was awesome. She brought us extra pillows and towels with 5 minutes of asking. The front desk even called to be sure they were delivered. Awesome service!!!

Room Tip: You don't necessarily need to pay for beach view- you're already right there! Location is gr...

I spent a wonderful girls weekend here. It was amazing. Everything I was looking for. Gray made sure that my birthday/girls weekend was set up perfectly! Jim & Beau at the tiki hut were fun and accommodating. It was enjoyable from check in to check out. Frien, comfortable rooms and breath taking views. Who can be upset with premium location, incredible beach bar and wonderful staff?!

This place is definitely for the fun-loving, activity-seeking family OR the ready-to-party-hearty population - not much in between. The tiki hut was great during the day and convenient to the beach and the pool, but devolved into a cheesy Margaritaville-esque atmosphere by nightfall. The live bands, which I usually really like and appreciate, throughout the day on Saturday were clearly not hired for their musical talent (sorry) but more to fill a corner of the tiki hut, provide a "show" for those needing it, and fill the entire beach and pool area with poorly executed covers of an incongruent variety of songs from the 80s through the present.

The restaurant, Porches, was delicious! We had lunch in this open air restaurant attached to the hotel, and it was delightful. The bartender, Michael, was pleasant, the food was great (very good bbq and my cobb salad was really good), and the mimosas were cheap (saturday/sundays - $4).

The pool? Full of kids, as it should be. Plenty of poolside lounge chairs to go around, would get out there early though just in case. Beach? Great and very big. Would suggest bringing your own beach chairs so you can get closer to the water without having to rent the chair/umbrella combo. In the alternative, you can sit in the lounge chairs positioned on the beach closer to the hotel (where alcohol is legally allowed to be consumed) but you will be really far from the water.

Our king sized room was very big and spacious, which was great. But there was absolutely no character to the room and it was almost too sparse. It is clear that the hotel intends for people to be in their rooms as little as possible, which is fine if that's your purpose, too - the fridge did not work and the bathtub needed some (albeit minor) repairs.

All of the staff treated us well and seemed fairly attentive to any questions we had. Not the most romantic place for a quick weekend retreat with one's husband or wife, but if you need a weekend on the beach to lounge without breaking the bank, it's not a bad place to sleep and store your stuff while you are outside.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front or first floor so you may get a patio.

Hello KathleenTSmith,
We are so happy that you enjoyed the big spacious room, attentive staff and the beach during your stay at our hotel! We do apologize that the refrigerator was not operable in your room and that the bathtub was not up to your expectations. We’ll be righting that wrong for the next guest and hope if your stay with us is ever less than perfect, you’ll let us know right away. We’re thrilled you enjoyed your lunch at The Porch and that Michael was able to enhance your experience – that will make his day when I tell him! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and we hope you choose the Beach House on your next visit!
