Where to stay in Hilton Head

A favorite East Coast beach destination, Hilton Head caters to a range of visitors, with budget options as well as world-class luxury hotels. Accommodations here are priciest in the summer months, during the high season. Among upscale options, choose from high-end resorts, hotels of all sizes, and gorgeous villas along the water. There are also a number of charming cottages and short-term rental apartments for those who prefer more private lodging. Shoestring travelers will find a few more affordable hotels here, or you can stay in nearby Bluffton to save cash if you don't mind the commute.

  • This is a fun place, but we're never quite sure exactly where we should park, and parking is always hard to find so we tend to stay away. The newer town center area seems to offer a more accessible walking and parking area. However, on a Thursday evening in late May 2017, the harbour was packed with people for a free concert and street food vendors, as well as adult beverages for sale. Although it looked like chairs were provided, people had brought their own, and there were lots empty because they were up and dancing to the music. Several restaurants with bars had lively scenes going, and at the outer ends, restaurants with live music still had patrons. Lots of shops with quality merchandise. I guess the key is to know the scheduled events and plan to arrive early to get a parking spot. It is a colorful waterfront, and I love the low street lamps made with shells (see picture).
  • Nice place to walk around, watching the boats and spend the evening. Chartered fishing and boating trips available. I rented one of the yacht for the weekend and used the facility at the harbor store for showers, this facility was very clean and well maintained.
  • Great place to walk,shop. Sometimes you can catch some live music!
  • Nice chill area with neat little shops and outdoor restaurants.
  • Amazing place. Absolutely recommend to everyone. Charter a fishing trip here with Captain Trent Malphrus and Palmetto Lagoon Charters for a memory of a lifetime!
