“Would give 6 stars, if I could”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Discovered the South Beach Inn after years of vacationing in Sea Pines and I just don't know why we didn't know about it before. My husband and I were down for three days and accommodations there turned out to be absolutely perfect in every way. We were always warmly greeted and shown the computers, DVD library, etc. Our room #208 was just the right size -- a small living room very comfortably furnished, a small galley kitchenette (sink, full refrigerator, coffee pot and microwave, with glasses, dishes and cutlery for 4), a good sized queen bedded bed room and bath. The place was immaculate and we were surprised to have daily housekeeping. It was exactly what we needed in a fantastic location and for a more than competitive price. We had looked at hotels and the South Beach Inn beat every single one for value. We are telling everyone about it -- it's simply wonderful!

My adult cousins and I visited Hilton Head for a couple of years in a row and have found this to be an excellent place for the family to stay and gather. The restaurant there set a room aside for the celebration of my uncle's 81st birthday. We had a wonderful time together!

Room Tip: We like the rooms with a bay view.

Loved Hilton Head and the South Beach Inn was a great place to stay. Room/apartment was very clean and spacious with all the ammenities we could have hoped for. The beach is within easy walking distance as are several restaurants, the real highlight is the bike riding on the beach though, mile after mile of empty beach.....loved it.

Absolutely no complaints!

South Beach Inn is at the southern tip of Sea Island Plantation on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. South Beach Inn is a gem, affordable, clean cool rooms with bright views and a terrific location, You can park you car and walk to the beaches or to several restaurants. We have stayed at South Beach Inn several times and are takign our honey moon at one of their rental houses on "Lands End". The South Beach Inn staff and owners are super friendly and very nice to work with. We love HH and South Beach Inn is our first pick to stay on HH -- only off season though!

Room Tip: Go for the loft room with a view of the South Beach Marina - we did and saw the most gorgeous sunris...

We recently went to Hilton Head for a family event. I liked the little condo we rented. The room was comfortable and the location was perfect for walking on the beach, birding, kayaking, swimming. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a great view of the water.

We recently had an occasion to go to Hilton Head, Sea Pines for a brief stay. This was our second time to stay at the South Beach Inn and both times have been delightful. It is a great location and the staff is very nice. We were there during off season so the weather can be iffy; but the price to value is excellent. We stayed in a suite upstairs. The Inn is older but is well maintained. Just keep in mind it is not handicap accessible througout. The Inn does not have its own restaurant; but the Salty Dog is just steps away where I enjoyed a wonderful shrimp gumbo in the warm sunshine of a glorious fall day.

Room Tip: See if you can get a suite with a view; but the corner suites away from the marina are quiet.

Booked for 2 nights and stayed 1 - reception staff were not hugely friendly - so that did not put me in a good mood for starters... The unit we booked was basic but nice. One room with sofa, coffee table, 2 large bay windows with seats, one small table with 2 chairs, little kitchenette and a bedroom with double bed, 1 wardrobe, 1 chest of drawers, 1 bedside table and lamp (not good when you both want to read in bed), 1 ceiling fan, and a standard US bathroom with shower over Bath, 1 basin, 1 WC. All very clean. The front door was very difficult to open and close. The key cards were not working very well and I was not keen to get charged for "out of hours opening" if I had to call them out because I could not get in. The pool is in the centre of a car park but apart from that it is a lovely pool. You can get breakfast delivered to you by the restaurants next door with no extra charge which is a great idea. However, it appears that the freezer in the room below our bedroom was working overtime and our bedroom was literally vibrating and so was our bed. We had a terrible night and left early the following morning completely exhausted... The refund came through very quickly so that was a plus but I can't really recommend this place as I felt I was not really welcome there.
