Planning a trip to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina? Want a great, spacious room without having to pay the incredibly high fees that come with staying in Hilton Head?
Then I have the perfect solution for you: Comfort Suites in Bluffton, SC!
This is a really beautiful, pet-friendly hotel with great features like spacious rooms, seasonal outdoor pool, fitness center, free breakfast, etc. Bluffton is also close enough to Hilton Head you’ll be able to easily get to Hilton Head during your vacation. But you won’t have to pay the high prices you get with Hilton Head hotels.
My family recently stayed there and had a wonderful time. We were sad to leave we had such a great time. We were very pleased with our choice to stay there.
So why did we like to stay there so much? We’ll go over some of the advantages right now.
A great thing about this hotel is the location. As I said earlier, it is located in Bluffton which is close to Hilton Head Island but is cheaper.
But Bluffton is also great in its own right. They have a lot of great dining options. It’s also the location of Tanger Outlets Hilton Head. This is a great place to visit if you like shopping at discount prices (which of course I do!). And since Bluffton is home to Hilton Head National Golf Club, it is a great place to visit if you love golf.
But the specific location in Bluffton makes Comfort Suites Bluffton – Hilton Head Island a great location. It is conveniently located off Highway 278. And it is located right in a nice, upscale shopping center, Belfair Towne Village. It has a Kroger which is great if you need to buy something. It also has some great restaurants there. My family in particular love Truffles.
It is an upscale restaurant with some really delicious dishes. My family in particular likes a lot of their shrimp dishes.
It’s especially nice that there are a lot of restaurant options for dinner because it can get really dark at night in Bluffton and I do not particularly like driving in that much darkness. Plus, you can enjoy a drink without having to worry about driving back to your hotel.
Another we loved about this hotel was the room. It was an incredibly spacious room. We stayed in a 2 Queen Beds, 1 Room Suite. This can actually accommodate up to six people because the couch itself is a two-person sofa bed.
See, the room is one long room with a separate living room area when you first walk in with a sofa and then two queen beds at the end of the room.
Even though the room was very long, it was not narrow. It was not hard to maneuver around the room at all. There was plenty of space.
I loved how they had a separate living room area from the beds so you can relax with your family while having a couch to sit on rather than a bed. The couch is comfortable, too. Not all sofa beds are particularly comfortable. I’ve stayed in rooms like before at other hotels where the sofa bed was so uncomfortable no one would sit there. But that was not the case here.
Speaking of comfortable, the beds were comfortable, too. So bed my family got great sleep while we were there.
Another neat feature they had was that you can turn the TV. So you can watch it in the living room area. There is a desk you can sit in across from the sofa, and you’re able to see the TV from that seat, too.
Or you can turn it to face the TVs if you want to watch TV in bed after you tuck in for the night.
The room was also very attractive. I especially liked the pictures up above the sofa of the area.
Other great features of the room include:
- Cofffee Maker
Another great feature of this hotel is the free breakfast. Not all hotels have this, and this feature can really save you a lot of money on your vacation. Especially if the free breakfast has a lot of options. Which this free breakfast did when I was there.
One feature of the free breakfast in particular I liked was the waffle maker. Or should I say waffle makers. They had more than one waffle maker. This might sound like a small thing, but if you’ve ever wanted waffles at a continental breakfast and had to stand in line, then you’ll appreciate this feature. Even if you happen to time it right and you’re the only family down there at breakfast who wants waffles, having two waffle makers will cut your preparation time in half.
One waffle maker has four smaller individual waffles while one makes the bigger waffle (though you can cut that up if you don’t want a full waffle). It’s really nice having these options. And just to give you options more, when we were there, there were two different flavor options. We could choose between the regular batter and red velvet batter.
But ultimately, the biggest draw of this hotel is the price. It is incredibly reasonable when you take everything they offer into account: spacious rooms, great location, free breakfast, etc. And they have suites that can comfortably fit families of up to six people. You will be pleasantly surprised how low the price is for a hotel this close to Hilton Head Island. You can take advantage of some great rates by booking your stay here.
