Great place to stay when visiting Paris Island Marine Base, Minutes away from the base and plenty of places to eat with in walking distance....This was our first time staying at the Seal Island Inn and very glad we did.and when we come back to Beaufort SC it will be the first place we call.

We decided to drive to Beaufort for the day from Savannah and really enjoyed the quaint and beautiful riverfront on Bay St. The motel is located on Bay St. and was immaculate and quiet. It was very nicely decorated and I was impressed. I don't usually stay in motels and was kind of apprehensive about staying as soon as it...

The folks at Sea Island Inn go out of their way to assure that guests have an outstanding visit. Rooms are quiet, clean, with 'fridge, microwave, good in-room coffee. It's in town, so you can park your car at the hotel and walk to everything in charming downtown Beaufort. There's always coffee and tasty cookies available in the reception area....

The staff was very kind and helpful, both when I spoke to them in advance and when I was on property.

If you are headed to Parris Island to pick up your Marine, this is the place to go. Great support for out-of-towners trying to navigate a military base experience. Also well located near quaint Beaufort's shops and restaurants...many within 5 minutes walking distance. Staff are knowledgeable, helpful and polite.

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night in this almost "waterfront" motel style inn. The staff were at all times helpful and friendly and even though we didn't arrive until 1am on the first night we were warmly greeted. I liked the situation of our room on the second floor overlooking a quiet street at the back of the hotel....
