First, I want to clear up a misconception I had before our visit. The Beaufort Inn is not a B&B. It is a Boutique Hotel which provides its guests with vouchers for breakfast (up to $10) at a choice of three popular venues. The main building is a beautifully restored 3-story private home of the late 19th century. Its interior and exterior are very ornate and typical of the era. The property is situated one block from the main street downtown, and two blocks from the waterfront which, unfortunately, is not visible from the hotel. It covers an entire city block, with well-kept garden areas. Our room was smaller than in a modern hotel, but well laid out with a full bath and direct access to a large second story veranda shared with the adjacent room. In addition to the main house, there were several smaller 1-story cottages, some apparently restorations and some of the multi-story buildings newer reproductions. Overall, our two-day stay was enjoyable, but not perfect. There were two things that contributed to my 4-star instead of 5-star rating: (1) the price was expensive, on the order of a stay at Old Edwards Inn, but it was during the annual Shrimp Festival in Beaufort, so could be expected to be higher than at other times; and (2) the central a/c was too noisy at night. When it cycled on there was a muffled "boom" somewhere below, followed by a continuous low level rumbling like a truck idling next door. Parking was conveniently located in a gated lot across the street, a big savings since most street parking in the surrounding area was metered, and even that hard to come by with all the visitors in town for the weekend festivities.

Room Tip: Our second story room at the front of the hotel was very comfortable with a nice shared veranda the...

We hope you enjoyed the Shrimp Festival, one of Beaufort's premier events, and so tasty. Thank you for letting us know about the noise from the AC; we have since had that repaired. Please come back to see us again.

The staff were excellent and very accommodating. The room/apartment was perfect. Everything I needed or wanted to visit was in walking distance. I couldn't ask for better parking. I stayed at a similar priced hotel in Charleston (near the airport) during the same trip and it wasn't even close to as nice as the Beaufort Inn. Also the pictures do not do the place justice.

Thank you so much for your review. We look forward to having you come stay with us again. The Beaufort Inn is ideally located within walking distance of shops, galleries, restaurants and our beautiful waterfront park where many festivals are held. Maybe next time you can come during one of our many fun festival events.

We came to Beaufort to visit our son who is in the Marines. I picked The Beaufort Inn because it looked very inviting and accommodating. Opted to stay at one of the Port Republic cottages so we would have a sitting room that we could visit with our son and his girlfriend. Could not have been more perfect. And the bed was amazing. Slept so good. Stayed three nights. Loved it.

The Port Republic Cottages are a great choice for a spacious comfortable stay with the addition of the front sitting room to visit with family or friends. We are honored to meet our Marine families who come for visits and graduations.

Relaxing, luxurious. Enjoyed the soaker tub. One block off the waterfront park. Liked that breakfast was provided with coupons .... choice plus did not have to get up at certain time and sit at breakfast table.

Which breakfast restaurant was your favorite? Blackstones, Palm and Moon, or Common Ground - they each offer different options and experiences. Glad you took advantage of the big soaking tub too.

This is a very cool hotel with lots of accommodations. The staff was very helpful and the bed is awesome! A very short walk to all the waterfront activities and restaurants. I would definitely stay again!
