Took forever to find someone to check us in, even though we called ahead to say we'd arrive in 10 minutes.They kicked us out @ noon on Sunday, a $75 charge to stay one hour longer! Staff well intentioned but not well trained. Breakfast was good.

Thank you for taking a moment to review the property. I apologize that you had a lengthy check-in. As you know, each guest is escorted to their room by a member of our staff. Occasionally it takes a moment to get a guest taken care of and get back to the front desk. We try to make sure there is...

Liked the location of the Inn in proximity to the Main Street of downtown Beaufort. The breakfasts were very tasty, food was kept hot, eggs were cooked to order. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

Thanks so much for the review and for spending your Pre-Thanksgiving with us! The location can't be beat! I will certainly pass your kind words about breakfast service to the Chef. Hopefully you'll be back to Beautiful Beaufort soon. We look forward to having you with us again!

The Historic Beaufort area is such a charming little spot. There are a number of excellent restaurants and shops, along with some wonderful art galleries. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to having you back in town sooner rather than later. Our mild temperatures in the winter make Waterfront Park enjoyable year round.....just a thought!

We got a house with 2 rooms on the property to share with our friends. We enjoyed the living room layout & kitchen however both bathrooms were extremely small. Their staff, including housekeeping, was nice. Breakfast was crowded with a buffet that seemed to sometimes "run out" of options if you got there too late and they seemed to be...

It sounds like you may have been in the Caretakers Cottage. It is a wonderful little house but does have two small bathrooms instead of one larger one. We do have rooms with much larger bathrooms and our guest services agents are always happy to answer questions about our rooms and try to place you in one that is exactly...

Location was excellent as well as service and food. You could easily walk to shops , restaurants and museums. The chef offers a popover muffin which was delicious and unique to the Inn. The staff was unusually pleasant and helpful.

Friendly and helpful staff. We celebrated our anniversary here this week and found anniversary wishes and a bottle of wine in our room. The Inn is well located for walking the waterfront and browsing the shops on Bay St. along with the historical venues. Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed in Cottage 18, which was quaint, comfortable and clean. There was quite a bit of noise coming from the bar outside our cottage. We heard what seemed to be college kids drinking and hollering well into the night. The bathroom in the cottage was clean. It would have been better if there were more counter space near the...
