I found a great deal on this beachfront "resort" and was so excited to stay, from the looks of the photos, at a more up-scale lodging than I can usually afford.
First the pros - The location is great. It is one of the few places on Hilton Head Island that is truly on the beach.
But the location is really the only thing that stands out about this facility.
When we walked into the room, I was instantly let down. The furnishings have obviously been updated, but at the end of the day, it was just an old used up hotel room with nice furniture. My husband & I, for our anniversary "get-away" had two double-beds in a regular sized hotel room with a strange door at the other end of the room. I wondered what it was and it suddenly dawned on me that it was one of those old "suites" where you can lock it from your side and the next room locks it from theirs, but ultimately it joins the rooms together.
The noise from the hallway was already enough, but then there was the added issue of the adjoining room.
The bathroom was very clean, but small. The sink was half the size of a normal hotel room sink. I had to put my toiletries bag on the floor.
No "do not disturb" signs...this was a first.
The whopper though, which propelled me to write this review - was the parting gift under my door on check-out morning. An envelope with extra charges attached. A $9.00 "resort fee" PER NIGHT and a $1.00 other fee per night. For our 3 nights it totaled almost $35.00. I'm glad we didn't stay a whole week!! So buyer beware, you may get slapped with $30-100 in extra fees depending on your stay.
Oh, I almost forgot - the first night we got there we were too tired after traveling to go out to eat so ordered from the restaurant downstairs. We were told they did not have one of the entree items any longer because as of 12:01am that day they were under new ownership.
All in all, despite the location, while I would love to return to Hilton Head I would not stay here again. It's okay for a hotel experience, but for me, I was hoping for what was advertised - a Beach "Resort" experience. Not so at The Beach House.

This hotel has a great location right on the beach, there's shopping and food right across the street, including Java Joe's for your morning cup. It's really dark at night since they don't have street lights, but that made the beach so much more interesting at night. I went in December so it was a little chilly, but much better than up north. The rooms aren't really ocean view since they face up and down the beach, but for a nice, clean and comfortable room with beach access, it can't be beat.

I would recommend this hotel and we would stay there again. There didn't seem to be enough people at the check-in desk and the person that was helping us seemed overwhelmed answering the phone and talking to us as well. The information on this property says it has been renovated - but the bathtub was old, stained and drained so slow the water was around your ankles by the end of your shower - the room was clean. Other than that - this location was excellent right on the beach - we had a pretty good view from our room. Good restaurants within walking distance and a great walking/bike trail nearby.

We have stayed here for a week every summer for the last 4-5 years. The recent upgrades to the public areas were nice, the rooms are about the same. We requested an ocean view room, we were told they had a partial ocean view room. And if you stood at exactly the right spot and looked over the roof and between the air-conditioners on the adjacent building you could actually see a sliver of ocean - they probably shouldn't call it a partial ocean view because we were expecting a little more than that. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it's a great location with beach access, which is rare for HHI. Overall it's a nice place to stay.
