I really liked being here, I thought the place was definitely unique and quaint. I liked that it was right on the beach. The guests were friendly and so wasn't most of the staff. Miss Frances on the other hand was a little hard to take at first, but warmed up to us eventually. Miss Frances was the host with... More

First time there and after reading reviews we knew what the accommodations were. No a/c, no tv , no electronics. What we did not know was at checkout there are six taxes tacked onto the bill ( not their fault) also a suggested tip amount. These items were additional $155.00 for two nights stay. The food was great, however servers... More

Stay on Pawleys every summer - and always hear about meals at the Sea View. Perfect fit with the Pawleys vibe - feels like you have taken a step back in time. Great view on the beach, and when the dinner bell rings (ask them if you can ring the bell!) it is time to eat. Traditional breakfast - the... More

We were here for lunch. Reservations for lunch have to be made 24 hours in advance since everything is a fixed menu. Not like a typical restaurant. You get what's on the menu for that day. But it was very good. Nice cup of bean soup, entrée plate with nice serving of fish, veggies and salad, and a nice slice... More

I longed to go here from many years. The location is tremendous. I'm sure others may have a good time since other reviews say they did. But our 2 stays were far less than hoped for. Since I didn't want to review based on a single stay I wanted to wait until we came back again. A significant note is... More

My wife and I stayed here end of March, beginning of April in 2016. It's truly a diamond in the rough. This charming old inn (a true inn where breakfast, lunch and dinner are included) is located on the actual Pawleys Island, a one house wide barrier island. Many of the people we met there had been coming there on... More

OK, I have resisted sharing this information. However, this place is magic. I've taken my family to this wonderful inn for over 25 years. We just returned from a amazing week and I'm writing this review so I don't have quite so much withdrawal. The Seaview Inn is a one of a kind. It has Lowcountry appeal at every level.... More

I can't say enough about the Sea View. It was just what I needed....'forced relaxation' with some of the most outstanding food I've experienced. Right on the beach, this has to be the most laid back setting I've experienced in a long time. Everyone there was so friendly. The staff was low country 'cool' & the food was exceptional. I... More

We're back from another wonderful Nature Week at Sea View Inn at Pawley's. Last Sunday in March and the week following. This year the week began on Easter Sunday - rain on the way down but a clear and sunny week following. Sea View was built almost 80 years ago and still has its 40's charm. No TV or phones... More
