A treasure in the perfect spot

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Spent three lovely days at this little resort that sits on the isle of palm right on an amazing stretch of beach. Beautiful sandy beach wasn’t crowded and it was perfect for romping in the waves The staff were very helpful and efficient. The rooms were adequate and clean. I’d stay there again in a heart beat. It’s location is right near so many restaurants that it is perfect for a new on each night. All 4-5 Star dining Across the street is a bar with live music that was a bonus Check it out Kid friendly too. It included breakfast The cinnamon rolls yum!!!

Best Vacation EVER!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This was our first time at Isle of Palms and Seaside Inn was the first place that came up when we started looking for places to stay. The room was nice and clean. Within walking distance to several restaurants and shops and most importantly right on the beach. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Booked our next trip while we were there! Can't wait to go back.

Unassuming clean inn directly on the beach

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Seaside Inn was a last minute choice for a short beach trip. You know what I mean-sometimes you just NEED to go to the beach. I have been to many many beaches. But I decided to try Isle of Palms in South Carolina partly because of the name and partly because it is the closest beach to where I am in Tennessee right now. There is a bar/restaurant that had a band in the evenings. It was pleasant to sit on the deck in the evening and listen for awhile. It is directly across the street from the hotel. I had a non-view room as I wanted to be frugal on this trip. It was literally down the outside hallway from the beach. It was fine and I am not disappointed that I did not pay the extra $75 for beachfront. The pool is very small. The inn is family friendly.

A great place to stay and relax~ Hotel Staff is exceptional!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I have stayed at Seaside approximately 5 times so far and I'm planning my next trip soon~ I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! The Seaside Inn is the perfect beach location. The front desk staff is very friendly and the property is always clean. During my last visit, my family and I had the pleasure to get to know both Tanya and Keisha who work at the Front Desk, they both were so pleasant and helpful, from offering advise on sites to see to great places to dine. They both made us feel so welcome! During our last trip we stayed in one of the Oceanfront King rooms, we had wonderful ocean views and we so enjoyed just relaxing on the deck and taking in the sites. The rooms are clean, the beds are very comfortable, plus the rooms offer a coffee maker, mini refrigerator, and microwave for your convenience. If you wake up hungry, be sure to try the free continental breakfast, you won't be disappointed!
I have visited many beach cities and stayed in many beach hotels, but I have to say the quaintness of Isle of Palms and the Seaside Inn has become my favorite!

seaside Inn a great place to relax and enjoy the beach

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

i have stayed at Seaside at least 4 times so far and am planning my next trip to SC soon and will stay there again.
I love the location , the desk staff is friendly and helpful. Tanya, Keisha and Shar are the ones I have had the most interaction with and from Making a reservation the checking in or out they have been so kind and helpful making my travel experience less stressful. The rooms are basic rooms without a lot of frills but that's what I want I am at the beach to be outside and explore then enjoy a super comfy bed at night. The mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave are really nice to have .
The housekeeping staff (most recent visit Liz and MaryC) are pleasant and willing to work around your time in and out of the room.
Seaside has done some updating and renovation of the rooms , adding flowers, seating and bike rentals to the ground level public areas .Making the hotel even nicer to stay in.
Seaside will always be my first choice to stay on Isle of Palms/Charleston.
