The location is perfect to walk downtown and enjoy the waterfront, shops, and local dining. Our room was clean and the staff was amazing. I left an item in the room when we checked out and Lois arranged for me to get it back - she could not have been more helpful and was so nice. Thank you Lois and the Best Western!

Hotel's Favorite
We walked into the room and said "Woah!" What an absolute gem! We were expecting your typical Best Western basic but this is several steps above and much more reflective of a boutique motel. Not only is the room spacious and full of light (room 200) but there is a fridge and microwave to keep and reheat any leftovers from the many restaurants in town. You will find all of the outlet and ports you could possibly need. We have a desk, a long side table and a very comfortable casual chair (see pictures). The beds are comfortable and the bedding crisp. Bathroom is gorgeous with all Kohler products and the shower feels so good. We love that they took out the carpeting too. My allergies are happy. Even though we were on the Bay Street side, I didn't notice any road noise. It gets very quiet at night. Walking to the shops, restaurants, quaint neighborhoods and parks is a breeze. Three areas of note: No elevator so you must carry your bags up but I did see one elderly lady getting help from a staff member so if you need help, you can ask. Our sink faucet was a little loose and one outlet isn't fully in the wall. It's tight and as far as it will go in but if I had a small child, I would find a way to block it. Don't let the outside look or the Best Western brand fool you. This place is an absolute delight from the check in staff who are clearly proud of their town and will give you maps and tips to the pool and location. I highly recommend a stay.

My favorite place to stay ANYWHERE!! Outstanding hot breakfast, lovely rooms, perfect location and helpful staff. Don't even think of booking anywhere else!!! The view is spectacular as you can eat your breakfast outside and gaze at the sailboats across the street. I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else while visiting Beaufort. This is my 5th time here!!

What an awesome place! Everything was so clean and tidy. It’s also got such a nostalgic charm. Though Covid has limited breakfast, there was still a good selection of items, and the ladies working at breakfast were very helpful and kind. Easy access from here to Bay Street and the Waterfront park. Overall excellent stay!!
