This was a nice place to stay. It was not hard to find. It was very clean. the walk to the beach was not bad just watch out for the bike riders you do have to share the sidewalk. We just had one day so take one more day then me to enjoy the rest of the island.

We stayed for 5 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Hilton Head. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews that have been published since it opened. However, I am glad that we decided to go through with the stay because it was the best vacation that we have ever had. I am convinced that some of the... More

Visited Hilton Head and the Coligny Beach area. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in South Forest Beach. Check-in and breakfast is in a separate building but you can drive or walk a short distance past the lagoon to the hotel nestled among the trees and natural setting. The location was very convenient to the beach access and the... More

Although not directly on the beach, the hotel is located an easy walk (15 minutes for us) equidistant from two beach entrances. It's also within comfortable walking distance of restaurants/shopping, and there was an independently owned bike rental stand set up on the property (bikes are the best way to get around the island). The reception and breakfast area is... More

This hotel is close to the beach. The breakfast area and check in is in a different building. The short walk was nice or you may call the hotel van to pick you up and drive you the 1/2 block away to the breakfast area. Breakfast was fine. It is complementary. The area was clean and well maintained. The hotel... More

The staff at Registration Desk was very congenial, especially Ashley. They always greeted you upon entering, however phone calls often went unanswered. What I found most disturbing was the lack of bathroom facilities at or near the pool. You had to go to your room for calls of nature. Also, HIE needs to do a better job of monitoring who... More

After reading the reviews, I seriously considered not driving 5.5 hours to Hilton Head. In full disclosure, this trip was offered to us at a very low cost by vacation play, who were trying to sell timeshare. Perhaps they put us in a good room so it would entice us, but I did not have any of the issues these... More

Close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. Bikes to rent, good breakfast, some covered parking, nice pool area, etc. A./C had some problems and someone was there right away to remedy the situation. We enjoyed our stay without any hesitation. Good place to stay, for sure.
