Perfect Location

We love staying at Seaside Inn on our weekend trips to Isle of Palms! Very clean and convenient especially with young children. We love being able to walk up to the pool to cool off from being on the beach! Highly recommend!

Welcome to Peace and Tranquility

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I have been coming to the Seaside Inn since 2009 when my Husband and I discovered it on our anniversary trip. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! The Seaside Inn is my families Happy Place. My upcoming trip will be our 2nd visit this year.  A stay at the Seaside Inn is more than just a stay in a hotel, its a wonderful, joyful time and that is largely due to not only the beautiful rooms or the exceptional beach location but because the staff is so welcoming and caring. Upon your arrival, you'll be greeted by the smiling faces of the front desk staff who truly care that their guest have a wonderful time during their stay. I have to say the quaintness of Isle of Palms and the Seaside Inn are surpassed by none. If you are looking for peace and tranquility this is the place to be

Great Location

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Perfect location right on the beach, rooms were very clean and the breakfast every morning was very nice. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Even though there is some nightlife around the hotel you can't hear it once in your room. I went on a girls weekend but it would be a great place for families too! This is a great value based on the location. The sheets were a little lacking in thread count but that is my only "complaint."

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.
