This was my second stay in Best Western Sea Island Inn in Beaufort, and it was as enjoyable as the first. Hotel staff are all friendly and helpful. Both times I have stayed there (once with my husband and once with a friend) the staff recommended Saltus restaurant for dinner and it is an excellent place to dine. The rooms... More

Staff very friendly, Comfortable King Bed. Safe environment for single traveler. Restaurants, shops, beautiful water area across the road, great for walking/running, Most things in close proximity to the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised that I could rent a bike at the hotel. So I did. I traveled during the Water Festival, and the area was very pedestrian friendly.

Perfect location, loved the pool and the breakfast.....the guy at the front desk needs to be happier upon checking in. Seriously....the pillows were a little uncomfortable and the sheets were not soft but other than that it was a perfect getaway!

Very nicely maintained hotel in the heart of the historic district. This is the only hotel within walking distance of the historic waterfront. The only pool in the historic district. Easy access to shops restaurants and the waterfront. Hotel is two story older (built in the 50s) brick but very well maintained. I know because the staff is knowledgeable and... More

We thought this hotel was great location, right across from dock, beautiful sunset area. Several restaurants steps away. No beach near. Very clean place, small, quaint. Great staff and excellent breakfast. Hot food, large variety. Parking can get tight if the place gets full. Excellent stay, would recommend!!!

Our stay began Monday late afternoon, we were greeted by a happy gentleman at the front desk. Quickly given are room keys and restaurants close by. If you want to walk to dinner and drinks and anything to do with the waterfront, Best Western is a perfect choice. Great staff and location!

The location is perfect, the breakfast is really good, the rooms are lovely and clean. Everyone we encountered was professional, helpful and positive. All in all, this was a very positive experience. The only suggestion I have is the addition of two comfortable arm chairs in the room. The ones there now aren't all that comfortable. The beds, however, are... More
