The Inlet Inn is a great place. I think I would pay just to spend the night on the balcony!
My wife and I stayed at the Inlet Inn for a couple of nights in late June. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance to a number of shops and restaurants, and other attractions around Beaufort.
We stayed in a water front room on the second floor. The room was larger than I expected, and it was very clean. The private balcony is large, with two rocking chairs and a table, and it looks directly onto the water.
There is also a nice small garden with a sitting area in the courtyard. The people (staff) were friendly and helpful.
My only complaint was that you can't really get the room dark at night. Even with the shutters closed there is light from the street that fills the room. This may be more of a personal quirk that wouldn't bother anyone else. It certainly didn't bother my wife.
This was our first stay, but hopefully, not our last.
