We had a great time during our recent visit to Beaufort. If was a special trip for my 85 year old mother, and the staff at Best Western Sea Island Inn couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us the best room in the hotel and made sure we had every thing we could need to have a nice time....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 April 2017 via mobile

We had a great room on the 2nd floor- kept spotless by the cleaning staff. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well every night. Cross the street and you are in the river front park, which is beautiful. The hotel is a block from the streets of shops and restaurants. We walked everywhere. The staff were genuinely friendly...

Very nice staff and very nice breakfast. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Was on a bus tour and the staff was very helpful and courteous getting our luggage down to the bus on time. Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

This hotel is right on Bay St within walking distance of almost anything you want to do. Nice rooms. The only drawback was the commode. Really low to the floor and jammed against the wall. I would not let this keep me from staying here again. The staff was awesome. Really good breakfast with hot items every day.

We recently traveled to Beaufort for a funeral. The staff was especially sensitive to our needs. The location was beautiful and convenient, and the breakfast was great. My only complaint was that the internet was impossibly slow.

Right on the waterfront you can walk to many attractions and dining spots. Take the horse trolley ride and see the historic old homes. Many sites are an easy drive from this hotel. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful

Crazy to think that a Best Western can be this nice! This hotel has one of the best staff's I've seen at any hotel. They are so accommodating and the location is perfect to downtown Beaufort. We stay 6 times a year and it is always so nice!

Great place if you can get in; more expensive than the average BW, but clearly a better choice than the average by the highway Best Westerns. Right in the heart of downtown; really choice if you can swing coming to Beaufort by boat, as the hotel is right across street from the Downtown Marina! Good breakfast, great staff, nice little...
