Quality Inn And Suites

Great room - total remodel. Best night's sleep

Stayed one night traveling with our dog. Had great pool side room on 1st floor. Room was fantastic. Lots of construction workers stay there and some we're noisy but not close to us. We just needed a clean comfortable room for the night and it met and exceeded our expections considering the cost.

Marriott's Monarch at Sea Pines

Short, but very, very sweet.

Came into area early and was able to access the beach and other facilities until time to check in. My 3 grandchildren had easy access to pool, pool table, ping pong, chess, while the adults could see them easily from their seats in the pool area. It was very relaxing and had variety. So much nicer than when we stayed at other hotels where you have only the beach, the pool and the room. They also allowed us to use the facilities after 10 am check out. We were able to shower and change clothes that afternoon and head home feeling sand-free ! Will definitely return to this hotel next time we come into the area.

Sleep Inn Hardeeville

Affordable on short notice

The room was very small as was the double beds. There was peeling on the non slip treads in the shower, there were gaps in the sides of the tub. The food area was very cramped and there was not much choice for food. Stayed for 4 nights and everyday after 11 am our room keys were deactivated. The staff made it seem like we caused it, telling us not to put it next to our cell phones (like we've never traveled before). The hotel is not bad but it is definitely not what I am used to, so I would only stay here again if I had no other options.

Hilton Garden Inn Hilton Head

#mattew

Stayed her for a couple of nights after hurricane Matthew. The staff was spread thin but very accommodating. Everyone's nerves were a little frazzled, Alex (at the front desk) seemed to just take it all in stride!!

Pro tips from our travel blog: Everything you need to know for a perfectly rewarding trip to Hilton Head

Relax at the outstanding beach resort of Hilton Head

Although Hilton Head, South Carolina, is only 12 miles long, it includes everything needed for a wonderful getaway. The island retreat is one of the most family-friendly destinations in the country and is filled with a calm beach environment exactly the opposite of bustling city life. It lies in the southern part of South Carolina, just 20 miles north of Savannah, Georgia. After a visit, visitors will see why it is consistently rated as one of the top beach resorts in the world.


Things to do
Beaches

Hilton Head is home to 12 miles of pristine white sandy beaches. Some of the most popular include Burkes Beach, Folly Beach and Forest Beach. Each beach is open to the public and provides the opportunity to play in the ocean, build sand castles, and admire the beautiful surroundings. If you are feeling adventurous, try parasailing for an overhead view.

Sports

Hilton Head is famous for its world-renowned golf courses. It is ranked one of Golf Digest's best golf resort picks. Numerous championship courses have been designed by famous names in the sport like Jack Nicklaus. No matter which course you select, you're sure to have an unforgettable round.

Historical attractions

Hilton Head has a rich and varied history. To uncover its roots from the Revolutionary War, visit the Zion Chapel of Ease Cemetery. Explore the grounds to learn about the hardships faced by patriot families.

Another great place to visit is the Sea Pines Shell Ring in the Forest Preserve. A Native American structure built more than 4,000 years ago, this historical site contains piles of shells made from oysters, clams and mussels, and provides insight into some of the first settlers in the area. It is a curious, awe-inspiring cultural marvel.

Shopping

Some of the best shopping exists in Hilton Head. It offers a unique blend of boutiques and nationally recognized chains. One-of-a-kind art and jewelry is available in scattered marine shops and plaza centers. The stores in the Coligny Plaza offer great local goods. Visit one of the dessert shops for a decadent sweet treat. For conventional shopping, Tanger Outlets lie over the bridge in Bluffton.

Dining

Guests will have a wide variety of food options to sample on Hilton Head Island. Besides common fast food, there are a number of family-friendly and upscale restaurants available. Hilton Head has wonderful seafood, and Alexander's Seafood Restaurant has been an island tradition for over three decades. Select from over 100 wines to go along with the freshest seafood and steaks in the area. For a more relaxed atmosphere, head to one of the Carolina barbecue restaurants.


Where to stay

There are two dozen Hilton Head hotels and resorts in town. For extreme luxury, consider the Inn at Harbour Town, an elegant boutique hotel next to the lighthouse and marina. Major amenities include a PGA golf course, tennis facilities and top restaurants. Thanks to budget hotels, staying at Hilton Head does not need to cost a fortune. For instance, the Red Roof Inn offers clean accommodations at half the price of most beachside venues.


Special events

Since golf plays an important part of leisure time at Hilton Head, the MCI Classic Tournament is held at the Heritage of Golf at Harbor Town Golf Links. It attracts the biggest names in the PGA. In the fall, check out the Hilton Head Oyster Festival. This three-day event provides food, live entertainment and crafts. In the spring, visitors look forward to the Wine & Food Festival, where guests participate in six days of tastings, lectures and various competitions.


Best time to visit

Summer is by far the most popular time to visit Hilton Head, especially for beach lovers. Temperatures approach the 90s daily. However, spring and fall bring more comfortable weather, with low humidity, becoming the perfect time for golfers to enjoy a few rounds. Hotel prices are also lower, and the area is less crowded. Since temperatures remain in the 60s during winter, it may be a great time for a short getaway from the cold northern weather.
