We've stayed here many times and have never had a bad experience. The property is quaint, clean, comfy and quirky. There are several room layouts and you can usually specify how much room you need and what kind of view and get just what you need. Each suite (that we have stayed in) had a scaled down kitchen and all... More

Beautiful amenities right on the beach with umbrellas, lifeguard, restrooms, changing rooms, great food in or outdoors and great bar areas overlooking the beach. Just a great place for everything on the beach. Our favorite restaurant is the Atlantic Room with excellent food and Mike provided the best service. The restaurant, Coast, had a beautiful room with sliding doors that... More

The rooms here are a little small, but that's to be expected with the inn so integrated with the marina. The location is tough to beat, and there's always something to do. Some rooms face or have windows on high-traffic (foot traffic) areas, which can be both good and bad. If you want more peace and quiet, ask for a... More

We stayed for two nights to celebrate our anniversary - great location and wonderful value! The staff was friendly and accommodating. South Beach area is our favorite place in Sea Pines. We hope to visit again!

Perfect place to bring the family. Easy access to beaches, kayaks, sail boats and the sea. Being on top of the Salty Dog Shops and next to their restaurants. Love the safe bike routes round the area. Never used or car during the visit, cycled everywhere. Tami the Property Manager is excellent.

The Inn is a throwback to a fishing village. The rooms are located above shops and all you need to do is walk down the steps for dining and shopping. There are three restaurants, a general store, and gift shops aplenty. The suites are clean and well appointed. There is free wifi, but no cable.

I hadn't been to Hilton Head before so didn't really understand the setup. This hotel is attached to the hugely popular "Salty Dog" complex. That means a ton of people are directly outside the rooms hanging out, waiting for their tables etc until fairly late in the evening. You might ask for an upstairs or back room to avoid being...

This is just a fun, cute place to go. The prices are very reasonable and the location is great. Love the Salty Dog Café - great view inside or better outside - weather permitting. My granddaughters loved the spiral staircase in our room and the nightly fireside chats near the outside bar. The beach is just a short walk away.... More

I have stayed with the South Beach Marina Inn on 2 occasions and both have been spectacular. The Inn rooms are located above the shopping in the South Beach Marina area of Sea Pines. It is the perfect location to walk over to beach or any of the many restaurants in the area. Bike rentals are easily available from the... More

The inn was perfect. Everything was so clean and nice. We definitely want to return! The room was decorated in a beach theme. The marina shops and food were in walking distance, along with the nice beach a short walk away. The staff was so friendly.
