My daughter, her fiancé, and I spent a Sunday night here to meet with the caterer and wedding planner for their wedding in Beaufort in October. This old-timey, motel is perfectly situated across the street from the marina, public water-front park and just a block from downtown Beaufort. This is a great value for the price.

This is a lovely hotel in a lovely location. Some rooms have view of the river while others have views of fab houses at the back. Carriage tours pass by. Hotel appears quite new and is very well looked after. Standard is high and staff seem to take a pride in it. It's right by Downtown and close to bars,...

Impeccably located on Bay Street, the main drag of one of the Southeast's most delightful small cities, this comfortable, immaculately kept inn is, in one direction, a few steps away from a bucolic water side park with old live oaks, and in the other direction, mere steps from an array of curio shops, galleries, appealing taverns and at least two...

We were in Beaufort for a wedding, and our friend (the bride) booked this hotel for us because of its location. It is in just the right spot for shopping in the shops and walking the riverfront. What an amazing breakfast! Such a large variety that it was difficult to make choices, and it was delicious! The room and bathroom...

A perfect location in Beaufort SC for walking around the historic town and visiting shops and restaurants. It's right across from the town marina. The staff was very friendly and helpful about inquiries regarding restaurants and other questions. The pool was quiet and relaxing. We stayed four nights and it was a very positive experience.

Attended the Marine graduation in Parris Island and selected this hotel in Beaufort. It's just a short drive to the Marine base. All were very accommodating, even offering breakfast at 5:30 so we wouldn't miss the motivational run which is not to be missed. Breakfast was plentiful. They even gave us a packet explaining what to expect each day at...

If you want to explore historic downtown Beaufort, this is a great place to stay. It's located right on the main street, across from the water.

We found this excellent motel very clean and comfortable, and in an excellent location from which to walk all around Beaufort, SC. Just across the street from the Marina and at the edge of the old neighborhood...the place you probably want to visit when you're in Beaufort.

This Best Western is a super location for visiting Beaufort, SC. It is within walking distance in the historic district and has the flavor of the SC location. It is an older motel and the rooms are smaller than most new motels, but it is well-maintained and the staff is super. Would definitely go back there again.
