“Great location for a great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

The nicest Best Western I've ever stayed in! Walking distance from all of the shops, historic homes and restaurants. Quiet, clean and beautiful. We received a great price for our rooms because we stopped by the Beaufort Visitors Center (on a whim). I would definitely return to this hotel!

Stayed 1 week. Very conveniently located to water front, shops and restaurants. All staff were extremely helpful. Quaint peaceful setting. My wife described it best when said, "it was like a B&B warmth and class in a motel".

Stayed June 2012, traveled with family

If your in the Beaufort, SC area this is the place to stay. Rooms are very nice, very clean, and the staff could teach a class on customer service.
We were there for the Marine Graduation and I would highly recommend this hotel to any families attending future graduations.

We stayed here for 1 night in May. The Best Western is across the road from the waterfront and boats. Its a very handy position for the shops, restaurants and the gorgeous old style mansions. Ask for an upstairs room and at the rear of the property as you will then overlook the Rhett Mansion and the rear road is very quiet. The room was clean and bed comfy. We used the pool which is in a private walled area and there are several loungers to soak up the sun. The continental breakfast in severed in a very nice and large room by a very happy lady called Emily. All the staff we came across were all helpful.

My wife and I spent the weekend in Beaufort, SC. This is our second time visiting. Both times were enjoyable. The people staying in the room next to us were very noisy at about 1 am. This is hardly the hotels fault but I did metion it during check out. The hotel manager Lisa Hudson was very apologetic. She worked with us to make our stay a pleasure. We will stay there again when we visit Beaufort in the future because of the staffs friendly and helpful nature.

I stopped one night in Beaufort while driving home to New York from south Florida. The Sea Island Inn turned out to be an excellent choice. Easy private parking, very clean (and clean-smelling) room, great location, close to the waterfront and many shops and restaurants. And very friendly, caring service. After I left and continued my trip north, I realized that I'd left my cell-phone charger back in my room. When I contacted the Sea Island Inn, they quickly found it and sent it to my New York address. Many thanks! One couldn't ask for better service.

I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Close to everything in Beaufort, and across the street from a unique and interesting waterfront walkway that has several old fashioned swings. Down the street from the hotel are several antebellum homes. Professionally managed in every aspect, with nice sized, clean rooms, and a good breakfast.
