We stayed at Anchorage For a night and also ate with them the previous night. This place is lovely. The location is perfect for downtown Beaufort but also a short distance to many other places. They have a top deck where you can really get an amazing view of the marsh going out into the ocean and we were even able to see some fireworks from here on July 4th. Their restaurant is amazing! The food was way above and beyond our expectations we ate dinner and had breakfast as well and we can’t stop talking about it so props to the Chef. Luke was our server for dinner and he also checked us in…he was great! If you’re looking for a relaxing stay, good dining experience and awesome breakfast this is the place you want to stay.

Wonderful staff they were all helpful, friendly, and kind. The rooms are Nic one has is the whole inn. The only down side is the beds are ridiculously high. They do provide a stool but that serves one side of the bed.

This was the perfect respite from our busy week in Charleston. We stayed two nights. The hotel is clean, rooms very comfortable and spacious, and the breakfasts on the wide breezy front porch could not have been better - locally sourced - with EXCEPTIONAL wait staff. Each night we found warm cookies in our room. The wood work inside the hotel is something to see and can’t be found in new construction!! Rooms were clean and the decor lightened up what could be a very dark interior. It’s located in walking distance to town for shopping and dining and a 30 minute drive from Hunting Beach and lighthouse. This can be a nice stop on the way to Hilton Head. Lovely and highly recommend it.

Visited Beaufort a couple of days prior to heading to Hilton Head and stayed at the Anchorage 1770 Inn. Pros - the location is perfect on Bay St - easy walking to the all the shops and restaurants nearby; they give you parking pass for street parking next to the inn --Savannah and Joanna - our morning servers - were great, always refilling coffee and checking on everyone; breakfast is limited to just a few items on the menu, but everything we tried was tasty --room was comfortable but smaller than we expected, but was fine for a short stay Cons - communication pre-trip could be better; received an initial confirmation when booked reservation but nothing else prior to arriving. Sent a couple of emails with questions and did take a few tries to get responses. Appreciated the cookies and lemon water left at night, but recommend wrapping the cookies, especially during COVID. They were wrapped first night but not subsequent nights, and had knats/mosquitoes on them. Had indicated a birthday celebration in reservation but it was not acknowledged during stay. Would have been nice to have a note delivered or a "happy birthday" upon check-in

We visited to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We loved our stay as well as the charming town of Beaufort. The inn is in a prime location, with gorgeous views from balconies overlooking the water and short walk to waterfront park, shops and restaurants. Our room was very nice with super soft sheets and comfy bed. Only negative was the a/c didn’t keep the room cool and we had trouble sleeping bc we were hot, but that likely comes with it being an old building. Breakfast was wonderful and we loved dining outside...the grits were the best I’ve ever tasted. We loved sitting on the top balcony in the evening and shared a bottle of Prosecco from the honor bar. The middle balcony was enjoyable during the day since it is shady and covered. We did a boat cruise with Captain Frank and got to see a dolphin. The owners were very friendly and welcoming! We really enjoyed our visit and look forward to coming back!
