The Sea Pines area of Hilton Head Island is geared more toward vacation rentals (condos, homes), so there really aren't many traditional hotels to choose from. That said, relatively speaking, the Inn at Harbour Town probably has the best hotel accommodations on the island.
This place pretty much lives up to expectations for its location and price range; however, I do wish the beds were a little softer (they felt almost firm), the bathrooms had a double sink, and the toilet was in a separate room. As I was traveling with family, these two bathroom improvements could have made getting ready a little easier.
There is a new pool on the Inn's back patio, and it is absolutely lovely. They envision an area of tranquility for this site, but a pool's a pool... fun will be had, There's also a more raucous shared pool in front of the Inn, beyond the tennis courts.
One thing to note is that there is no beach nearby. You need to bike, drive or take the island trolley to get to one. You might notice from a satellite search a small strip of beach near the harbor lighthouse, but this is (in my opinion) disgusting and un-swimmable.
If/when I return to Hilton Head, I'll probably look into a rental closer to a beach.
-Don't forget to stop at the Sea Pines welcome center (off Greenwood Drive, just beyond the roundabout- right-hand side), just before the Sea Pines gate, to get your pass that allows you "free" entry into the Sea Pines Resort area.
