“The Beach House -Hilton Head”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed at the Beach House while on a girls vacation the first week of June. The property is beautiful, right on the beach, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. We booked our vacation from Travelzoo and the breakfast buffet was included. This was the best breakfast buffet I have ever had at an actual hotel; meat, grits,potatoes, cook to order eggs, fresh fruit, etc. The rooms were clean and adequately equipped. The only negative I have is the carpet. The carpet was dirty in both rooms we reserved. All in all, it is a great place to stay and I would definitely come again.

The beach and a girls getaway; sounds like perfection! We’re very happy you loved our breakfast at The Porch restaurant. We’ll pass your praise along to our Chef and his great team; we know it will make them smile! We’re also glad that our cleanliness met your expectations. We apologize that the carpet did not live up to our other qualities. We will take your thoughts into careful consideration as we continually strive to improve, thank you. We can’t wait to see you again when you next visit Hilton Head Island.

Looked at this property as a choice for 2 night stay in HHI. Then when a Groupon came out, I couldn't resist but book the dates. Since my husband & I are beach lovers, it was a great choice as it sits right on the ocean. The staff was especially friendly from the front desk to the pool to the Porch Restaurant. It was extremely busy but we always managed to find a pool spot or beach spot. The food was really good, I suggest the Nachos for a "big" snack & the breakfast buffet, being included in our Groupon, was fantastic..They had everything from cereal, breads, to omelet station, etc..We really had no complaints; how can you when you are in sunny 90* weather!! Shout out to Brandon the Pool Supervisor & Oliver, bartender at the Porch!! Thanks guys for your southern hospitality!! We didn't see much of the Island but from what we did see, it was crowded & we prefer a much quieter "beach life" but we're glad we visited..

Room Tip: We had view of parking lot on first floor! But we had no noise to complain about in the hallways or...

I was in Hilton Head last week for a friend's wedding and had a great time. We had the pleasure of being served by many excellent staff at the hotel, but I would like to recognize a few individuals. Our bartender for most of the weekend, D.R., was a craftsman with his drinks and always had a smile on his face. You can tell the passion he has for hospitality, and it was great to have him behind the bar. The only issue that arose was that the attendees kept running the bar dry! (It was quickly restocked, thanks to Chris). Margaret in the catering department was there to check in on the reception as well as the post wedding breakfast the next day, and ensured everything was set up and running smoothly. Combined with the excellent location in relation to the beach and local establishments, I would definitely give two thumbs up to the Beach House. Keep up the good work!

We stayed at the hotel for a wedding and extended our stay to spend time at the beach. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Rudzcini was especially cooperative when we wanted to change rooms. The beach and amenities are lovely. My only complaint was trying to reach front desk staff in advance of visit for information. I kept getting transferred to central reservation number.

Room Tip: King rooms have a sofa bed. It would have been nice to know in advance.

We had several very nice surprises upon our return to the Beach House. The corridor from the front desk to the restaurant had a new face, one of a southern, beach area, emitting the aura of "welcome". It ended with a sweet presentation of another surprise, The Porch, as the restaurant is called, is now open to the outside where there is outdoor dining and lounging around the new fire pit. The new menu, all prepared by the renowned chef, Chef Tim, is more than amazing. I was happy to be able to enjoy a breakfast as well as a dinner on site. I am looking forward to my next visit to try more of the many selections offered. I will mention the new bar and the superb job the beverage director has done putting together very unique and appropriate beverages for all.
The next surprise was when I visited the Tiki Bar. One evening it was particularly chilly so I took my jacket down. They had installed retractable, umbrella like covers for the tables and each one had a heater. That evening the heater was turned on at our table's request. Well I definitely didn't need my jacket.
I heard there will be another "surprise" upon my next visit. All of the guest rooms will be redone. I can't imagine, once that is completed, that there will be anything else one would need to have a memorable vacation at the beautiful Beach House Resort on Hilton Head Island.

Pat,
Thank you for your loyalty! We’re very excited with the results of our recent renovations, and we’re thankful you appreciated the results. The Porch is quickly becoming a favorite; it’s great to hear you feel the same. We will be sure to pass your many compliments along to Chef Tim; we know it will make his day. The new heaters at the Tiki Hut Bar make us happy too; we think a chilly night shouldn’t keep us from enjoying live music and tasty drinks on the beach. We can’t wait to see you again.

The hotel was not bad, it was the island, bumper to bumper traffic, nothing but hotels and time shares with millions of kids and PEOPLE everywhere. Would never go back. People that worked there were great and everything was clean, It was a nice hotel if not for the millions of people and cars around the hotel. The beach was like a kids pool, go out a 100 yards and still the water was only 3 feet deep.

Room Tip: Sleep on the beach

This was our third time back. Could not believe the changes since our last visit. The restaurant is unbelievable. Food and service was excellent! Can't wait to go back again. The decor and the photos hanging on the walls in the restaurant were a very nice touch.
