Stayed at this lovely property earlier this week for a girl's trip. The location is perfect for getting around the historic area of Beaufort with easy walking distance to the waterfront, restaurants, and shops. The property was very clean. Kudos to the housekeeping staff for keeping things sparkling. Our stay was perfect!

Such a cute and charming hotel in a great location! We were steps away from restaurants, bars, and cute little shops. It's also very close to the water and near a cute historic district. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Came upon this motel while traveling south from Boston to Delray Beach. We liked it so much that we decided to stop in on our trip north as well. Great location in downtown Beaufort, comfortable, clean room, and a hot breakfast. It has a little swimming pool and a function room but did not use either of those. The guests...

I don't think I've ever stayed at a Best Western, but the character and staff of this hotel is pretty much the same as a boutique hotel you'd get in any resort town. Really cool old building right on the water. We stayed in room 214 and had lovely water views. Great location within walking distance to all the shops...

We stayed one night on way back from Florida. Our room faced the bay (second floor), and it was nice sitting on the bench outside to enjoy the scenery. Note that the rooms in the front (ours was 214, same as a previous review) do not have windows looking out towards the bay as the bathroom was in the front...

Older hotel but remodeled and kept pristine. Perfect location for activities in Beaufort. Staff helpful with sightseeing and getting around town. Breakfastt was standard for an included one. The one complaint was that the hot food was at best tepid, and dinnerware the thinnest plastic you can buy. You have to eat very carefully or it will break.
