The breakfast tray delivered to your room on the morning is an extra treat. We like the rooms with a balcony that overlooks the inlet and Carrot... More

It is also right on Front Street, with great restaurants such as Finz and Spouter a short walk. There are little grocery stores, coffee shops, boutique and water gear... More

We stayed in a first floor, corner room with a fireplace and porch. The room was spacious, clean, and had a very comfortable bed. The porch was perfect for sitting, people watching, and looking out on the water. The Inn was close to everything in town including the Beaufort Grocery Co which has incredible food. Their is also a bicycle... More

My first time to Beaufort and I really liked the location of this Hotel. The rooms and atmosphere is more like a Bed & Breakfast, with a great continental breakfast brought to your room!

Stayed on the 3rd floor in a very large room with a window seat overlooking the marina. Better than average bathroom. Refrigerator in room. Nice staff with good restaurant recommendations- they know family and upscale dining places, and the good bars- all within a 2 block area.
