Y’all! This is the best place! Our room is immaculate! Convenient to historic Beaufort. Eat at Old Bulls Tavern (reservations a must) if you get a chance. What makes this place is the most excellent customer service offered by the front desk. She told us everything we need to know about the area. I need to go back downstairs and get her name but just so you know we appreciate you!!!! Stay here! I have travelled all over and I cannot rave enough about the service we have received! Restaurants, shops and art galleries all within walking distance. Sound across the street. Stop by and see the ladies at Atelier off Bay and Thibault Gallery—go buy a boat.

Hotel's Favourite
The Best Western Sea Island Inn was ideally situated in Beaufort. It is just across from the carriage tours, close to the waterfront park and area restaurants. Our 2-queen room #221 was at the top of the second floor stairs overlooking the parking lot…no view but it was very quiet (no elevator, but we had asked for an upper floor and Buddy was great in fulfilling our wish). The bed was very comfortable. The room has a mirror and counter outside of the bathroom, always convenient for a second person. The breakfast was the best we had in any of the similar chain hotels providing free breakfast on our trip. Fruit and other items were individually packaged, to comply with COVID measures. Anne provided great breakfast service, and personally made us the waffles that I like so much. Don’t miss the beautiful homes along the lake, to the right of the hotel as you exit. Reserve this hotel well ahead, as it was fully booked the night we stayed there.

We were in town for our nephew's UCMC graduation. So happy I booked at this hotel. The location was ideal with the proximity to the beautiful waterfront park with lots of swings, many restaurants, ice cream and shops within walking distance and just a 15-20 minute drive to Parris Island. The room was good size with 2 queen beds, super clean including the nicely remodeled bathroom and the area was very quiet. Parking is TIGHT especially with half of the lot blocked off because of current roof construction, but we did manage to get a spot each night. Hostess in the office was very pleasant. We only had time for 1 breakfast of the 3 morning because we had to be to Parris Island so early, but it had a large variety of items and a few things that were easy for us to grab and eat in the car. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

The location is the best and the property, breakfast and especially the staff are the absolute tops. We were in town for a rather sad reason and their compassion was above and beyond. The breakfast was delicious and very clean dining area. The rooms have a soft, lowcountry feel with local art and the location to downtown is perfect.
