Rhett House Inn, Beaufort
"Does it smell like death?" - Front desk staff
#1) Website says Inn is "family friendly", but have no cribs or high chairs. Was told I should have one shipped to the inn. Later learned from staff that they did actually have a crib #2) No one on staff to assist in carrying luggage/pack and play we were told we should get. #3) owners fought in the public areas of the inn #4) Asked if we could keep our stroller next to the bike. Front desk said "sure". When we went back to get our stroller it was soaked. Sprinklers went off and drenched the entire thing. We had to use the inn dryer to dry a portion of the stroller, for the rest of the stroller the same front desk person told us, "maybe you can find a sunny spot in the yard?" #5) horrible stench outside of our room the entire time we stayed there. When we asked about it, front desk asked, "Oh, does it smell like death?" Yes. It did. We were told they would ask the manager about it #6) Were told they had all sorts of wine/beer/alcohol for cocktails in the evening. There was no beer, nothing to mix alcohol with, then told that the manager needed to do a costco run so they didn't have anything #7) I called (4 days in advance of our stay) because an additional night was added on a separate reservation. Clearly a mistake. I was told on the phone by that inn refused to refund that night. When we got to the inn the person at the front desk said they would honor full refunds within 4 days of check in. I called 4 days of check in. So, I was punished for using a third party.

The Rhett House Inn is a perfect place if you want to experience the Southern hospitality. We were greeted very warmly with a tour of the house which is not really big, explanation of the amenities, a 5:00-7:00 pm coctail and another one at 7:00-9:00 pm with fresh baked products. In my opinion the house looks much better in the pictures than in real presence. I think the renovation this house had needs a new one soon. The room was cozy, a/c worked perfectly but the TV/cable box was not connected and never worked. The famous 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm reception were not true at least during our stay. In fact we got back from Hunting Island 🌴 at 8:35 pm and nothing was served, my wife and I wanted a coffee at least but the server told us the pots were already empty and that we had a coffee maker in our room (we found it wasn’t true). Luckily there was a Starbucks about a mile away). Up to that point it was not the best experience for a B&B type of hotel. Bed time and the mattress was not our style, this one was too soft and perhaps required a change, we kept rolling to the center of it. The bed was noisy. The best of all was the breakfast. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy it inside or outside . Everything was delicious and people was very attentive and friendly. I know that I sound a bit picky but honestly for the price I expected better. Any Savannah upscale hotel by the river walk is more affordable and you get much more. That’s just my personal experience and opinion.

Would not recommend staying at Rhett House Inn
We were disappointed from the first minute we were shown into our room. It musty smelling and looked dirty. When we went to put ice in the ice bucket, there was bacterial moldy standing water in it. We asked and were politely given another room. Our second room was better as far as musty smell, but it was no cleaner. We decided to go to another hotel but were told that because we booked through we could not get our money back. So we reluctantly stayed. The shower was tiny and the drain cover was completely unattached exposing broken tile around the drain. The grout was black with mold and mildew. I found two hairs in my pillow cases. GROSS. The breakfast staff was very nice but could not retain our orders long enough to deliver the correct plate to our table. They need to get their act together.

Great trip
Beaufort is a beautiful place to visit and from the Rhett we could walk to the waterfront, jump on a tour or shop the down town area. Sales, a terrific restaurant on the waterfront was a short walk as well. Our accommodations were excellent as was were the full breakfasts, evening snacks and desserts
