I was very leery of trying to book a motel at the last minute on such a tight budget. (We usually rent condos for a week, on the beach). This was a budget-wise three night getaway and price was so important. I read some nightmare stories on other motel websites in Hilton Head....some were priced twice as high as this one.
I read some positive reviews on here about this motel so cautiously, we booked it. We made jokes in the car the entire trip there about meeting "Mr. Cockroach" and how he and his family would be everywhere. WEll, the joke was on us. The place could not have been cleaner. I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the room that I told the general manager how much we appreciated it. He told us that when he took over this motel a few years ago, that wasn't the case. He hired the best known house cleaner in Hilton Head. She was SO good that she now is the trainer for all the house cleaners in the entire region. She cleans the rooms the old fashioned way, military style. Tightly made beds with fresh bedding every day. The bathrooms had absolutely no mold anywhere.
Extras: The room even had a nice big 32" Samsung Flatscreen TV, a small microwave, and a fully functioning mini-fridge with a tiny freezer on top. They serve a very limited continental breakfast but we didn't eat any of it so I can't comment on that. We dined out. Pool area was also clean. The made that area a little private by planting palm trees and bushes next to it so it can't be seen from the parking lot; nice touch.
The Negatives: Only negative would be I wish the water closet was larger. Tiny fit with the door swinging in right on top of the toilet. And there really needs to be a community bathroom near the pool. I wonder how many little tots pee in the pool because they would have to go all the way back to their rooms to use the bathroom.
Word to the Wise: Best time to visit HHI is during the week during the summer if you want a quieter, more refined crowd. We stayed Tues. to Fri., and we noticed on Thursday night, it got different. By Friday morning we were so glad to be leaving. It's sad to see HHI going the direction of more populated beaches like Myrtle Beach and Panama City Beach. Same environment here in HHI on the weekends. The beginning to mid week, it's much more quaint.
Hidden Gem: Kenny B's Cajun Seafood. GREAT recommendation by the staff here at the motel.
Overall: I was blown away over-all, of this modest motel!!!! Location is only about two miles from the beach.
