This was our 1st trip to the area. There are 3 or 4 restaurant/bars here, as well as some shops. Rental bikes, tennis courts, & the pool are all nearby. Harbor town is a 10 min.drive or leisurely 25 min. bike ride away. I can imagine the crowds and parking could be an issue during the high season, but it...

My husband and I booked room 217 for a two night getaway. Although the room was bigger than we needed, we picked it because of the harbor view from its own separate balcony. The office staff was very friendly, the room was very clean. It's an older inn with awesomely tacky nautical themed furniture and decor. Loved it! The kitchenette...

We arrived for a one night stay. Had booked room 208 on line. Got here to find no record of our booking. Staff said online booking has issues. Great to find out after the fact! We were in luck, they had one room available. Unfortunately, it was room 213. It turned out it overlooked the courtyard. We listened to noisy...

Stayed in a Lagoon Villa (1588) through South Beach Inn. Great location, beautiful beaches, don't have to leave Sea Pines and can take trolley all through Sea Pines. The villa was clean and everything was perfect! Great vacation! Saw dolphins (daily), small alligators, blue heron, sand dollars, starfish, pelicans and more. Lovely setting, everyone very friendly! Close to everything at...

NO matter what activity you like or if you just like relaxing on the beach, South Beach is the place to be for a casual, fun vacation! South Beach Marina Inn is at the southern tip of Sea Pines and is in the perfect spot for all activities! Beach, pool, biking, shopping, boating and eating...it's all right there!! All within...

My family visited recently and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. No need to leave the South Beach area. My 4 year old loved the free entertainment for kids and my Hubby and I loved being able to take a short walk to various restaurants onsite. Note that parking is an issue during peak season after 5 pm and if you want...

Nice area but don't go there expecting beach access. The beach area is an inlet so there isn't wind and waves, etc. Had to drive to Coligny Beach park. The pool was nice. Uncomfortable bed and an 18 step climb to reach our room. Rooms were clean. Parking is a nightmare in the evening when the Salty Dog cafe is...

We spent two wonderful nights at the South Beach Inn and look forward to returning this summer. This colorful and quaint fishing village and marina grew up around the Salty Dog Cafe, a popular restaurant at Sea Pines. You can rent jet skis, paddle boards, or a pontoon; bicycle along the shady paths near the beach, swim in the pool,...

I found South Beach Inn after reading reviews here on Trip Advisor. The South Beach Inn is located on the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island. This is a HUGE resort that had gated/guarded to come in and out. The South Beach Inn is right on the marina, and has just under 20 rooms for rent. Our room came...
