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.

I would recommend this facility to anyone. The location is very convenient to the town. I do not know what else to say. Why must there be 200 characters in order to submit this review? As I said before, I would recommend this facility to anyone. It is very convenient to the town.

Older hotel. Completely remodeled rooms. Nicely decorated. Very helpful & friendly staff. A/C noisy. Other than that everything was great! Definitely will stay here again. So convenient, on main street. Beautiful marina right across the street.
