We attended our first Water Festival in Beaufort this year. It was a great experience. The 10 day festival brought 100,000 plus people. We choose the Beaufort Inn because of its reputation. Our stay there was fabulous. You open the front door and WOW what a beautiful interior to match the beautiful exteriors, gardens and rooms. The service, the staff and the breakfast could not be matched. Everyone was friendly and attentive to our needs even thought the Inn was quite busy. The Water Festival was a great event to have at that time of the year. There were good food, events and music. If you are in the area in July, plan a stay at the Beaufort Inn and take in the Water Festival. You will not be disappointed.

This is the craziest story about a misunderstanding and mismangement you have ever heard. We stayed at the Beaufort Inn last weekend for the Beaufort Water Festival. A local and dear old friend had booked and arranged payment for the Fisher House for our party of four couples. Everything started out fine. The Fisher house is pleasant enough having four bedrooms with a central foyer and den. Two bedrooms on each side are connected to a shared bathroom (A little Europeon but whatever, we have all been friends for thirty years). The front two bedrooms are entered from the interior of the house from a shared foyer and den. The back two bedrooms are connected by the bathroom to the front bedrooms but entry is from two exterior doors. The couples in the back rooms have to go through the front bedrooms to get to their rooms from the den or go back outside to enter their rooms. It is beautiful old house ,so it is what it is, but kind of an odd set up. Would probably work better for families, rather than couples.
We all checked in on a friday evening and went out to meet old friends. Upon returning that evening we sat on the front porch and became aware that the house sits on corner with a lot of noisy late night downtown foot traffic. No big problem but my husband and I were on the front corner and heard people walking by and talking late into the night until the bars were closed at 2am. We woke up about 3am to two women fighting very loudly on the sidewalk outside of our room. My husband stepped outside and they left.
Saturday morning we woke up early to spent the entire day and evening with old friends from Beaufort. We immediately had a problem with hot water, had a shortage of towels(only six for eight people), and only four coffee mugs-- so we called the management. These issues were resolved by the manager ,Mr. Myers. When Mr Myers came by he mentioned to one of the individuals in our party that they were having trouble getting our host for the weekend credit card to go through. Immediately after that our local host/friend came to join us and went to the inn with us for breakfast. Our friend who had talked to Mr Myer searlier mentioned a problem with the bill to our host at this time--our host didn't think there was any problem with his card and actually thought his old friend was joking with him. Mr. Myer came by the table at breakfast and our host who is a local businessman and knows Mr. Myers had a long conversation with him. Mr. Myer made no mention of any problems with his credit card or the bill. At 10am we left for a wonderful day of boating in the Beaufort harbor and an evening celebration with old friends. We returned at around 11:20 PM still wearing bathing suits, cover ups etc; no wallets no pocketbooks. We were greeted with signs taped to the front and back doors of the Fisher House saying the bill had not been pd and they were going to give the rooms to others at 5PM. ALL locks had been changed, none of our keys would fit into any of the doors, all of our possesions were locked inside. Four couples, all 45-50 yr olds professional men and women with more than enough money to cover a hotel bill -out on the street. We went to the Inn and picked up the outdoor phone to resolve this crazy situation. We were told the office closed at 11PM and would reopen at 7AM. I explained we had been locked out of our rooms with no wallets, clothes, car keys etc. We were put on hold and then told again the office would be open at 7AM and we could talk to them then. We called our host who immediately came over--he used the outside phone to call and was told the same thing. We had no option but to call the police. The Beaufort Police Department was wonderful! They were as shocked as we were that the management would lock us out and manage this situation this way. For hours the police used the outside phone to try and locate management, owners, emergency contacts etc:-- they were told the same thing the office would open at 7AM. -- Who knows how this hotel would respond if there was a serious emergency, fire, robbery etc: Our party was quickly getting tired as it was now close to 1:30 in the morning, many sleeping and getting eaten by bugs on the porch furniture at the Fisher House. I must admit as frustrating as this situation was we all have a good sense of humor and could not help but laugh with the police at this crazy situation. Finally with pressure from another police officer who had arrived, at 1:45 Mr. Myers came down, he would not talk to anyone in our party only the police, he was not happy to try and resolve the situation only rude, angry and mean. Mr. Myers said he had tried to get in touch with our host/ friend all day. Our friend had not gotten the calls because he did not have his cell phone with him on the boat. Our friend asked why Mr. Myer had not mentioned the situation to him when they had talked at breakfast. Mr Myer said he had told our other friend and expected he would have told him. Our host/ friend still doesn't know why his orginal form of of payment didn't go though but gave Mr .Myer another credit card which he took inside. At that time Mrs. Myers came storming down and was ruder and nastier than her husband. Around 2:00 AM Mr Myer returned with new keys. I know the Myers were as unhappy as we were to be up and handling this at 2:00 in the morning. Wouldn't it have made since to have done this at 11:20, when we arrived back only 20 minutes after the office had closed. Even better couldn't we have resolved this on Sunday morning at CHECK OUT?-- Isn't this when most people check out and pay? To add one more insult --Mr. Myers asked the police officer to assure him we would not damage the rooms in anyway when we departed. I guess that is now he or others he knows would have responded to such an incident, it would never have occurred to us or happened. In fact the entire evening we had thanked the police and even apoligized to the Myers. Everyone in our party is southern born and breed--The management at The Beaufort Inn does not represent the "southern hospitality" they advertise.

This inn offers free parking in the middle of a historic district, is located close to activities and shopping, and fantastic breakfast and lunch menus - what more would you want from a few days away from it all? This inn is beautiful and charming. Every detail lovingly attended to by the management. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you like the water, the beaches are close by, as well. I didn't want to leave. I suppose that means I may just have to return. This inn also has pet friendly rooms available and welcomes children. We stayed in a 2nd floor room. There are several rooms in the main structure and separate "cottage" rooms unattached on the property. Something for everyone.

The Beaufort Inn is our very place to stay in the Lowcountry and in fact have stayed in various rooms including the "Beauloft" over a dozen times. We have a 3 year old daughter as well and the Inn lends itself to space for everyone and everything that a sweet southern young lady should learn about the south. The "Southern Grace" lunch is a great addition to an already good thing. Try the fried sushi! We do miss the "happy hour" and hope that it will return. Walking distance to everything and comfortable enough to sit in the beautiful gardens and do nothing at all! Our little dog joined us for the first time on this visit and she too, felt right at home. Mitch and Julie are the perfect hosts and we have seen great improvements since their arrival to the Inn. We have spent several Thanksgiving which we hosted at the Beauloft and found last minute accomodations at the Inn when we had to arrive last minute for a family members funeral. Next year we plan to share the Inn with many friends and family members who have never stayed before as my sister gets married next April. This is the place for a home away from home. Some of our area favorites are- Shop at Doodlebugs for kids stuff, Bay Street Jewelers and Fordham Hardware. Of course do not miss the Chocholate Tree! Eat at Plum's and Wren is good also. Late night, Luther's is the spot and they have a great playground on the waterfront. A horse and buggy tour is a must!

Our first trip to Beaufort couldn't have been more special or more of a perfect getaway, due in large part to the experience we had at the Beaufort Inn. Prior to our arrival, Vonetta spent extensive time with me over the phone, to help me select just the right room. She was very patient and helpful, provided additional descriptions of rooms, and answered my many questions. We drove down for a long weekend from Virginia and having never been to Beaufort before, we were hoping for the best...and got even better! We arrived at the Inn on a perfectly sunny and cheerful spring Friday afternoon...as we drove in we were immediately welcomed by the sound of live music playing across the way at a cute taco shack. We were also pleasantly surprised to have arrived on the weekend of the Taste of Beaufort festival--a great way to sample some of the great restaurant choices! The location of the Beaufort Inn was ideal and "downtown" which really enabled us to get an easy feel of the area.The Inn had lush honeysuckle and other yummy smelling blossoms lining the fences and walkways that was immediately familiar and happiness inducing. Our stay (for the first two nights) began in cottage #13 and as we decided to extend our original reservation by a night, we then stayed in room #24. Both were tremendous and each had a completely unique feel for a totally different experience. The cottage was classic, fresh, and traditional, without being one bit frilly or overdone. Wood floors throughout with a sunny gorgeous large (size of another room) bathroom. Lovely natural light flooded the cottage. This was separate from the main house, and we enjoyed having our own little porch and entrance. Room #24 was super, too! Also separate from the main building, and on the second floor, up a wide staircase lined with framed movie posters of movies filmed in Beaufort--very cool and well done! The King bedroom was beautifully done. It still seemed brand new with a luxurious shower and claw foot bathtub. We loved sitting out on our balcony, overlooking the brick courtyard. The coffee was delicious, breakfast very good, and although we never seemed to make the afternoon refreshments as we seemed to be off exploring during that time, sure that would have been great... Julie and Mitch Meyers were the inn keepers and very gracious, friendly, and hospitable! They went out of their way to make sure we were completely taken care of--what personal service they gave that you could never get at a hotel! We were new to Beaufort and they really spent some time talking wih us about the area and pointing us towards some ways to explore the area--we loved the carriage tour, the Taste of Beaufort, and the beautiful beach at Hunting Island. We also spent an enjoyable moment chatting with the chef and catering staff , who also made such an impression! Everyone was incredibly friendly and fun. You all are great! We look forward to returning...what a special find!
