Howard Johnson Inn Beaufort/Parris Island

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Breakfast was not very "Continental", not a whole lot to chose from. Juice machine was broken.

It fulfilled it's purpose as a quick place to stay. It's was close to base, and not too far from what few stores and restaurants were near.

Will not go here again. Not at all what the pictures show

Hotel is convenient if you are attending graduation. Room was comfortable but the refrigerator didn't work and smelled terrible. Also the hallway smelled terribly of cigarettes.

A ok place to stay for a day or two but not for a destination. Old property but fair price. Nonsmoking rooms yet they still smell like smoke.

We got a less pricey hotel room got all the amenitity for us with two little boys frig, ice, and pool. However beware of stairs because they don't have elevator to go upstairs.

It was in a good location, not far from the air show or from Hunting Island State Park. Breakfast was good and the pool was nice. The only major problem we had were the sand gnats flying all around the pool biting us and our kids. The outside of the hotel definitely needs to be treated for the sand gnats. The staff at the check in/out desk were not very friendly, but the rooms were clean and neat.

The stay was ok really nothing to much for the kidsto do

I was going to Hilton Head for a day trip and just wanted a hotel to crash before I headed back so I booked this inexpensive hotel. It was not terrible, it was just okay but it was like a 40 minute drive to the beach which was my mistake.

Room was comfortable with all the amenities expected. Location was further from our destination than expected but not a problem. Staff was helpful and courteous.. Found a nice restaurant close-by.

They didn't seem very friendly. Got my room for me early which was a plus, although until I told them I was part of a wedding, they weren't even going to check availability of a room. Room was alright. Annoying alarm went off while I was there, I unplugged it from the wall. Didn't bother with breakfast there the next morning. If you're looking for something affordable and a place to "crash" (and don't mind being close to the Greyhound station) this should do fine. Nothing special.

My experience was limited as far as stay time but the hotel was decent.

Ok for our short stay.t Quick & easy to Parris Island! But rooms need updating. Patio doors locks not very secure. A/C units are too loud. So so breakfast. Nice pool

I arrived late, my room was ready however i asked for a iron at check in and they said one was in my room, there was no iron that i could see went back to the desk because i had to iron my clothes for work. Again they said it was in the room behind the door so i said ok maybe i missed it. went back to the room no iron went ba ck to front desk mind you i am on the second floor, they said ok and bought me a iron. Also the air was not on took a while to cool off the room.

Our room was clean, and the kids loved the pool. But we wouldn't pay to stay again. Understaffed and Unfortunately, the amenities were bad. The hair dryer was nonfunctional and visibly broken. The ironing board broken and the iron coated with junk. Toilet seat badly needed replacing. Towels and wash clothes of very poor quality and only two, rather than the normal 4. Breakfast was a SAD display. Nothing fresh except apples that looked like they had been around for ages. Very limited options. We definately won't be choosing this motel again.

The hotel is at the very end of what you this is a decent area. Please notice the picture of the hotel is far away. That in itself should have been my first clue . I just finished a 6hr drive and wanted to check in"early" but my room wasn't ready at 1400. The gentleman at the desk was pleasant and explain to me I could check in after 1500. As I walked in the lobby I tell this was a bad decision. After returning to my car a d reviewing my confirmation agreement. I was ok with eating the $60 and going to another hotel where I checked in immediately and was able to relax with a peace of mind of being in a safe environment.

Fast check in. Nice staff. Clean room and a comfortable bed in a nice sized room.

The hotel was a great location for the Marine graduation. And close to everything else to do. The room is a little tired and could use some updating but if you get a room on the back side the view is very nice and they have everything you need. For the money it's not bad at all.

I'm not sure if it should be said that its a good deal for the price,b/c if it were $25 a night would that justify a good deal. Old is never a good deal, HJ hay day is pasted. They tried real hard though. Clean, room with slow drain pipes. I booked 2 nights with a 2 day car rental (compact car) on one of the web sites for $188.00 I was looking for a bargin. My nephew is a Marine now from Parris Island. I would tell a friend spend a little more $$$ , like $100. a night

pulling up to the hotel it didn't seem like much, but once we got inside it was more than what I expected and there was plenty of space inside
