“Great place to be on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

If you love the beach and need simply a reasonable place to sleep, this is a hotel. Clean and comfortable and literally on the beach, 30 minutes from Charleston. Great restaurants and Southern hospitality. The whole area is worth visiting.

Room Tip: 1st level on the Sullivan's Island side seemed to be quiet. The other side might be noisy due to...

No parking close by, Wi-FI connection not working, empty pool, dirty room, no privacy, shared balcony with our next room neighbors and anybody else who walked by. For over $200 a night on a weekday in March! We canceled and stayed in the beautiful Wild Dunes for less money.

Room Tip: oceanfront rooms share a balcony with people in the next room. can't even open your curtains to...

We chose this hotel because it was right on the beach. We walked in the room and it was clean and comfortable. The door stuck but that isn't a deal breaker. The bathroom was nice, it had a large tile shower! I did have trouble connecting to the wifi but who need a phone when you have a gorgeous beach just a short walk away. The front desk attendant was very helpful and the housekeeping employees were very polite. I would definitely be staying at this hotel again.
As a side note, if you stay on a Friday or Saturday night and want a more quiet stay, ask for a room on the opposite side from the Windjammer.

Room Tip: Choose side opposite of the Windjammer

We had an extra night and happened on this beach hotel. We got one of the last rooms on first floor without water view BUT we're not disappointed. Room was clean and adequate. Walked right outside to the beach and at night sat outside our room with a glass of wine and listened to live great music across the way at the Windjammer.

Anytime I can find lodging directly on the beach, I take it. The staff is helpful. Very affordable price, relative to location. Rooms are basic and "beach clean". Walking distance to everything for tourists on IOP.

We found this hotel years ago when we stopped at the visitor center at SC state line. What a treasure we uncovered.
Wish I could keep it a secret, but they are so awesome, I just have to share a review.
Breathtaking location, listening to the waves crash while your head is on the bed pillow! Watching the dolphins swim by while sunbathing on their private deck.
Hotel staff is always welcoming, professional and courteous while offering dining tips, sight seeing ideas.
Entire hotel was recently remodeled and is even better than before.
Linens are always fresh and clean, grounds maintained daily.
Free breakfast has been upgraded to include hot eggs and sausage along with fresh made pancakes.
Just wish I could visit more often.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South side (right side facing hotel) can be loud because of the VFW.

I brought the kids here for three days and we absolutely loved it! We loved the room the staff the view the breakfast everything was wonderful. I honestly do not understand the negative comments about this hotel. If you come to the Seaside in expecting five star dinners and mints on your pillows then this isn't the place for you. It's a laid-back island they treat you wonderful and I will go back in a heartbeat. These bad reviews are just not correct! Thanks for taking care of me and my family will see you soon!
