Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkNAmy Great experience
We own property on Fripp Island that we also rent out. The night of our arrival, our property was booked, so we needed a place to stay for the night. We picked the Holiday Inn on the Internet, so we weren't sure what to expect but the price was right. We were so surprised when we arrived. The lobby is absolutely beautiful. The room was large and fantastic. The hotel has a great restaurant, and we enjoyed the $4.95 breakfast special of eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. Overall, a fantastic experience. We often have family joining us at Fripp who need a hotel room on the mainland. We will enthusiastically recommend this location. I can't say enough good things.

I spent three days at the Holiday Inn during a reunion. Most all of the reunion group stayed there on the 4th floor. It was great how well they accomidated us and I had a great time. The room was very large, clean and had every thing I needed. I loved the ironing board and hair dryer. The bed was huge and so comfortable I didn't want to get up. Will be back next year !

Overall the Hotel was pretty good. Located in a good location with anything you need available with in a 5 minute drive. All beds were very comfortable. CONS: The Corners & areas between dressers & wall were very dusty and needed to be vacuumed. And the couches & chairs were worn out. Fortunately we didn't spend alot of time in the room or this might have been an issue. The pool was indoors and closed the only day we had time to use it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dvildg Disappointed and outraged
First for the disappointed side of the review, as we arrived at check in time we were told that our room wasn't ready yet. After sitting in the lobby for 45+ minutes we finally got our room. We had been in the room maybe 30 minutes or so when a maid comes straight in without knocking. Nobody told her the room had been given out and she had been told the sheets on one of the beds was dirty. This was great news for my son and I because we were already laying on them relaxing. She then told us that she would be right back to get us towels and wash clothes because those hadn't been replenished yet. That night I had went down to my car to smoke, as I tried to return the elevators were down so I get to walk up to the fourth floor. The second night we were there, I don't sleep much, I went down again around 1 or 2 in the morning and the night clerk was laid out on one of the couches napping.
Now the outraged part, if you didn't know Beaufort sits right outside Parris Island, USMC recruit training facility. Im a former Marine and part of my trip was to take my son there to show him where I trained. This is a military town. When I looked up at the American flag this hotel was flying and saw it had a hole in it and looked faded I brought it to their attention. The only response I received was it must have been the weather that caused it. As of yesterday when I left it still hadn't been replaced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArtSearch Very Nice Decor and Spacious Room
This was a great hotel. The front desk was quite welcoming.
I had a room with a great view of the marsh and palmetto palm trees. The room was spacious and the decor was very nice. The beds were comfortable with nice linen. The bathroom was nice also.
The hotel was conveniently located to the downtown area, waterfront and adjacent islands. Breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. I even used the laundry room which was economical, clean and conveniently located near my room. It was worth the price and I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel has a good location and was only 10 miles to Parris Island. Several Eatery's were close by also. The Beds were very comfortable but the Couch and chair were very worn & uncomfortable.

We were in town for our son's boot camp graduation from Parris Island. This was a lovely place to stay close to the base. The room was spacious and had amenities like a microwave, refrigerator, and sink. The food we had in the bar area was also very good. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by McKindsey Over night stay in South Carolina!
We had a fantastic time at your hotel and felt really special even though we were there just for one night. It was booked by phone from the visitor center. We settled in to an immaculate room suite with a couch, wow!!!!!! Then we did the carriage tour and had a delicious meal at the restaurant and slept well and sat down and really enjoyed the breakfast choices in the morning!!!! The staff are wonderful, the waitresses at dinner and breakfast were amazing, can't recall their names. The service was fantastic,really nice to meet folks that really live and enjoy South Carolina! Thank you for letting us stay here and letting us include Beaufort in our two week south Florida vacation by car. I've never been to South Carolina and want to return soon. I've never seen trees that hang down or magnolia flowers before! We left with chocolates for our vacation from the Forest Gump chocolate shop! Thank you soooooooo very much!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by srb2013 Very Nice, clean hotel and wonderful service.
I really enjoyed my overnight stay. The room was very clean and the staff were very helpful. For example, I walked out to my car the next morning right before checking out to find that I had a flat tire. The lady at the check-out desk found a local place that I could get my tire fixed in no time. That made my day.
I also enjoyed the food in the restaurant there and the sweet tea in the lobby. Nice touch!

It was our first visit to Beaufort and we knew nothing about the area or available accommodations . We read a brief review and decided to try our luck. We could not have been more pleased with our room and overall experience . We also loved exploring the area and can't wait to return to the Holiday Inn soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe7562 Great Scenery at a Great Hotel
We were pleasantly surprised with a beautiful view of a swamp! The wildlife and the ebb and flow of the tides were constantly entertaining. Ditto, for the rising sun over the water. And sitting on the patio watching all this made for a perfect ending of the day. Very friendly staff, eager to please. Clean spacious room but on the higher end of our pocket book range.

More than you'd expect from a chain hotel. Comfortable room with a lot of extras, like separate sitting area, mini fridge, microwave, safe, hair dryer, magnifying makeup mirror and coffee maker. They thought of everything. Spotless room and bathroom. Bed very comfortable, endless hot water. Hotel very quiet at night and early morning. Staff very friendly. Nice bar that has outdoor seating overlooking the marsh. All close enough to historic district.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by snowdrop38 My bed was not comfortable
I checked in my room and when I went to bed there was three iron pieces at the head of the bed, the middle of bed, and the foot of the bed. I had to call the front receptionist at 1:00 am in the morning because we kept hitting our legs.When he was confronted he could not tell me what it was...Its a matter of fact no one could tell me what the iron pieces was and the next day I had to change my room. There was no concern what so ever about the bruise on my leg. I was pretty much disappointed on this trip and usually I'm pretty happy about staying at the holiday inn. So I hope the next experience will be better.

Rooms were spacious and clean with a great view of the marsh. Hotel was clean, not much noise and our kids loved the breakfast. Location is convenient but not well marked. This may be due to Beaufort zoning requirements.
Con: no pool
We felt like it was a great value for the money.

Exceptionally clean room. Quiet area. Buffet breakfast was the only meal we ate. Food was exactly the same both days so it would get a little boring during a long stay. Front desk staff was great. Wait staff at buffet totally ignored us the second day which was ok. We found everything we needed and just left our coupon on the table. Overall a good place to stay.

My wife and I enjoyed our two night stay. We were visiting with our Marine grandson and he managed to visit us in our suite, which also included his wife, and our Great Granddaughter. Roomy and Clean.
We enjoyed it so much, we intend to stay here for several nights in early June with our 2 young grand children. Choosing the Ex Suite.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ROBE1 My Overnight Stay
My stay was an overnight stay. In an effort to provide an accurate account of my stay, my comments will be broken into categories.
Event: 50th Birthday Celebration for family member currently residing on Beaufort’s Lady’s Island.
Customer Service/Front Desk Staff: Very pleasant, helpful and friendly. The refreshments at the front desk and in the lobby area are a nice added touch. Lobby area clean and new appearance hotel upon entrance. Nice marble floors in lobby.
Restaurant: Clean area, friendly staff.
Room: Presidential Suite, Room 328.
Positives: Spacious and large enough for my family group. Beds were comfortable.
Negatives: 1 bathroom in suite, no mirror in bedroom area, dirty and spotted carpet, worn-out living room furniture to include sofa, chair and side wall ottoman, pull out sofa beds were not comfortable, not enough bed linen for pull out beds, cigarette burns on furniture, old iron (scorched on bottom); requested a new iron- it was delivered but did not work, broken shower hardware, mildew on shower wall, old towels (strings and spots), moisture in ceiling causing paint to chip and fall down.
Summary & Recommendations: The room worked for an overnight stay. However, if my stay was longer, I would have requested to see another Presidential Suite or possibly request two double bed rooms.
I understand that all hotel furniture, no matter what the clientele or price range of the hotel, is subject to constant and aggressive use. By aggressive, I simply mean that the furniture in question never has a chance to "rest" - beds are slept in every night, wardrobes are opened every morning, often by people in a hurry whose concern is more to do with packing and leaving than any thought for the hotel bedroom furniture. Your furniture is used intensely and continuously - which means the first consideration for good hotel furniture should be durability. I personally don’t think that your furniture met that requirement because your hotel is fairly new and the furniture in the Presidential Suite did not retain its “just brought” appearance. I left your establishment with a not good first impression of your Presidential Suite.
Knowing that your hotel is only a 3 star, your rating could possibly increase if you consider making your Presidential Suite, just that, a Presidential Suite. Consider that you are really expecting “The President or Royals” and make your Presidential Suite the best room in the hotel. Consider having water already stocked in the suite’s refrigerator; create an in-room refreshment area, provide newer linen and towels in the room, reposition the furniture so that both sofa beds can pull out without customers having to move them and lastly provide a décor that is indicative of that room being the “best” room in your hotel.
I took several pictures of the room and can make them
available if you like.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NicoleLynn Great place to stay while in Beaufort!
My husband and I try to stay at a Holiday Inn wherever we go, so when we found one in Beaufort we had to book a room. The room was wonderful! It was spacious and included all of the amentities of home... not to mention the wonderful relaxing hot tub right in the room. A great plus, for a long day of walking around the great city of Beaufort! The hotel is in a good location, a close drive to wherever you'd like to go. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and suggested great locations to eat downtown. Our room came with breakfast coupons and with the different choices of breakfast specials, we never left the hotel hungry! We will certainly go back to the charming city of Beaufort and will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn.
