“Lots of Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very nice place to stay. Staff was not particularly friendly. Room could use a good cleaning…mildew on the shower curtain, dust in various places and the carpet needed to be vacuumed. Soap bar was never replaced and I was using a sliver after three days.

Breakfast was from 7:30-10:30am. If you didn’t arrive by 10, the staff wouldn’t put out more food. They would not only go above and beyond as would be expected at a place like this but they weren’t even going to do minimal.

Convenient location to shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Lap pool and garden area were lovely. The grounds are the best part of the stay.

Room Tip: Stayed in queen with balcony. Balcony connects to other balconys so we did not utilize it for lack...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed here for a wedding in April 2013. Rooms were lovely, bathrooms were very nice, and the happy hour and breakfast were great. Staff was pleasant and helpful. But seriously, the beds were very hard. I am not typically a fussy sleeper, but I found them just too darned hard. (others in our party agreed with this assessment).

The garden courtyard of the Inn is a real gem. Feels like Europe, with manicured plants and shrubs, little benches, and a hot tub in a little arbor. The Inn is so pretty I still give it a good rating, but I sincerely hope that mattress upgrades are in their budget soon.

Room Tip: no big differences, as far as I could tell, among rooms.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend. We found everything wonderful. We especially liked the happy hour everynight. The breakfast was very good. The staff pleasant and helpful. The bathroom was quite spacious! Beds comfortable!

My wife and I have stayed here several times and have loved it. We can't wait to visit again! The Inn buildings, gardens, and pool are beautiful. The complimenatery drinks and homemade cookies at happy hour are a very nice touch. The breakfast buffet is "AWESOME"!

This was our second visit in the last five years. I don't think they've dusted the place since our last visit. Seriously, I have never seen a place so run-down. The window hinges in our bathroom had a year of dust on them. Every wall had a number of unrepaired dings, and the towel ring had banged the wall so many times that there was a crescent ring in the wall as well. The hot tub in the pool area had murky brown water. Finally, one of our kids found a cheerio in his bed.

This place has potential - good bones and a good location for access to certain parts of HHI. However, if I were the owner of this hotel I would fire the management company. They're terrible.

The room was a great price for Hilton Head. The bathroom was huge. They have an evening reception with complimentary beer, wine, and snacks (from 5-7pm). They also offer a complimentary full breakfast which was so -so. The waffles and pancakes both mornings were a bit hard - like they'd been out too long. The hotel itself is on the north side of the island, which is quite a hike to the main attractions of the island such as the lighthouse, the Sea Pines resort (where Harbor Town and the Salty Dog Cafe), and the main downtown area are located. The most convenient beach access (Folly Field) is about a 7 - 10 minute drive away (depending on traffic). So, overall - really great price for Hilton Head; however, if you prefer close access to beach / attractions, I'd recommend paying a bit more for a hotel further in.

I hope few people read this as we don't want this secret to get out very far and thus it would just be too hard to book a room in the future. We just had a marvelous time at the Main Street Inn and would recommend it to our friends and family. The staff was very responsive to our needs, the inn was clean and neat and met our expectations. The recommendations from staff for places to eat and visit were spot-on. We couldn't have asked for more and then the rate we had was beyond our wildest dreams. I had a great spa experience with Miss Molly so don't forgot to consider pampering yourself when you visit. Oh and yes breakfast was to die for.
