Our room was small, and although the location is good the building lacks charm. Rooms are accessed via very utilitarian outdoor parking areas & walkways, and the breakfast room is locked during the day, so there is no public seating areas except 2-3 outdoor seats in view of the office. The bed & linens were fine, but there was nothing...

We were in Beaufort for a wedding and stayed at this hotel. All of our experiences with the staff were positive, pleasant, professional, and friendly from making reservations, checking in, and checking out. We had the corner room (200) with several windows and a view of the bay. The room was very nice, but we did laugh about the bathroom....

The staff was very understanding and accommodating with so many changes to our event and Hurricane Matthew hitting the area. The staff was very ac-knowledgeable about the area and had a packet of information for the graduation we were attneding. Answered all questions, reasonably priced and within walking distance of downtown and many restaurants.

Needed a get-a-way and chose Beaufort, SC from our "to visit" list. Chose the Sea Island Inn based on Trip-Advisor reviews. Beautiful location, right in town, and right by the water. Check in was a breeze, very welcoming. It was a haul getting our luggage up to the second floor but we survived. Room a bit smaller then we imagined....
