My family recently stayed here and we were impressed with how pleasant the staff was and how clean the rooms were. The location is perfect for enjoying beautiful downtown Beaufort, and the view is second to none. I give this one an A+!

This hotel and staff were amazing! Linda, Buddy and Tia went above and beyond with customer service. I recommend this hotel to any folks, especially those in town for USMC graduation. They offer "insiders" knowledge of travel, efficient timing, dining suggestions, and hospitality for new Marines; even after check out time. I would stay here again and strongly suggest this...

Compact but lovely room, great breakfast, great location, water view. Beaufort is a great place to see between Charleston and Savannah. Wish we had budgeted 2 nights. Hotel staff was very helpful. Even lent us pass to Hunting Island State Park when we asked for directions, Excellent breakfast.

This Best Western Sea Island Inn is at a great location, right in downtown Beaufort. The Inn was no-frills, but clean and well kept. The breakfast bar was terrific, with a wide variety of options to choose from.

Thank you for the terrific review of our little Inn. I do apologize for our lack of laundry facilities. The good folks at the Downtown Marina, (across the street for us) have such facilities that they don't mind our guests using. We even provide laundry soap. Please do come stay with again soon!
