Hotel's Favorite
This was our first time visiting the Beaufort area and this hotel could not have been in a better location. the hotel is directly across the street from a marina and a beautiful park with swings that look out across the water. It is within walking distance to shopping, food and many amazing historic homes and churches. The hotel is in an older two story building with no elevator, but the rooms have been updated and were very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and overall, we had a lovely stay.

This is a quaint and lovely hotel in a great location. It is across the street from a marina which made for a lovely evening walk. It is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The rooms have been updated and the property is very clean, inside and out. The people who work here take pride in the service they offer guests and make you feel at home. The breakfast has special touches with homemade breakfast breads (thank you Bobbie) and a warm greeting with information provided about the area. I hope to return.

Our room was clean and fully stocked. The staff was warm and welcoming, answering all our questions during our trip to pick our Marine on Parris Island. They knew all of the tips and tricks. Breakfast was offered, free park pass to Hunting Island State Park, free bicycle rentals, and a Klondike bar each evening to all of the guests. How nice! Plenty of beautiful places to sit and enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee of stroll along the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park. Beaufort historic district is beautiful, take a walking tour or explore for yourself. There are even carriage rides. Enjoy!

We loved this hotel, it's staff and the location. So much to see and do within walking distance. We were there for our Marine's Graduation and they were so accommodating with information and any help that we needed.

Older property in a great location. Right in the historic area. Exceptional staff and an outstanding, free, breakfast. Would definitely recommend. Had a problem with the tv not working. Cindy switched our room and then came up with a bottle of wine and offered to move our luggage! You don’t find service like that any more.

BEST HOTEL I have stayed at in a long time!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast ladies (Shelly) were great! The breakfast itself was delicious and the peach bread was to die for. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the beds were new and comfortable. The room was very clean and so was the pool area (actually everywhere was super clean). The location was perfect and we enjoyed the Watermelon sip & stroll downtown and the restaurants were really great! WE WILL BE BACK!

This was our first trip to Beaufort, even though we live in SC. We opted for the 2 night trip to go with the value option, since the reviews had been very good, then perhaps look for other places. We were pleasantly surprised over how easy it was to stay here, and just park and walk out to shopping and dinner. I was also so happy about how quiet it was.

We stayed here for one night and the only thing disappointing was that Beaufort basicall shuts down on Sundays! So we couldn't take advantage of being in downtown Beaufort for the shopping. But we did enjoy being in walking distance of the golf cart tour and of nice lunch spots by the river. The motel was small with 2 stories but nicely designed to fit into the old town look with brick walls. There were some nice big trees for shady parking too. And best of all they had a dehumidifier stand-up unit right in our room since it was HOT and HUMID in August. So the room was comfortable though it had the usual tiny Best Western bathroom. And breakfast was good with different small quiches instead of eggs and the other usual fare. Staff at the front desk were very nice too.
