When you first pull up to the hotel it seems old and outdated. The parking lot is very cramped and the hotel seems to be stuck in the 1970s. However, the rooms are modern, clean and decorated very nicely. All of the furniture is new, and the rooms are larger than one would guess by the exterior. The bedding, mattress and pillow were clean and extremely comfy. ALL of the staff was very pleasant, and went above and beyond. The complimentary breakfast was more than one would expect for the price of the room. Overall we had a great stay and were pleasantly surprised by this Hotel !

Hotel's Favourite
The Best Western Sea Island Inn was ideally situated in Beaufort. It is just across from the carriage tours, close to the waterfront park and area restaurants. Our 2-queen room #221 was at the top of the second floor stairs overlooking the parking lot…no view but it was very quiet (no elevator, but we had asked for an upper floor and Buddy was great in fulfilling our wish). The bed was very comfortable. The room has a mirror and counter outside of the bathroom, always convenient for a second person. The breakfast was the best we had in any of the similar chain hotels providing free breakfast on our trip. Fruit and other items were individually packaged, to comply with COVID measures. Anne provided great breakfast service, and personally made us the waffles that I like so much. Don’t miss the beautiful homes along the lake, to the right of the hotel as you exit. Reserve this hotel well ahead, as it was fully booked the night we stayed there.

Long established motel with excellent upkeep over time. Room was clean and well maintained. Coffee/water at check in and revamped Covid breakfast. Direct booking offered a rate higher than internet booking sites even though not having to pay booking agencies. Met the online price after I requested a better rate. Used to have 24 hr cancellation for boaters but no longer, now requiring 48 hrs. Excellent location. Reccmend. Hope this helps.

We love our boaters! Thank you for the kind words, we appreciate our return guests very much! (We only returned to a 24-hour cancellation policy during the height of Covid; it has been 48 hours for a few years now. It is hard to sell rooms at the last minute, especially when they've been held for awhile.) We hope to see you again soon!
