Summary


Pros

Cons

  • Hotel's beach access requires a drive
  • No fitness center
  • Some rooms have tube TVs

Bottom Line

The gated HarbourSide III has an apartment-like feel with one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos, all equipped with full kitchens. Most condos have harbor views, but the decor leaves a bit to be desired, especially in the bedrooms where shiny bedspreads look shabby. Perks such as free parking and free Wi-Fi are nice, and families enjoy the pool, but the beach is a drive or bike ride away (the hotel provides a free shuttle). Still, many travelers appreciate its proximity to numerous restaurants.

Location

In an inland area of Hilton Head overlooking Broad Creek

Map of HarbourSide III at Shelter Cove Harbour

HarbourSide III is in an inland area of Hilton Head. The beach is only a short drive away, and the hotel sits on a harbor with creel views.

A sports enthusiast's ocean escape, Hilton Head is an action-packed coastal city that has historically attracted an upscale crowd. Although it's surely luxurious, this resort town is equally laid-back, boasting calm public beaches and low-key seafood eateries.

Most of Hilton Head's attractions are outdoors. Local golf courses have long been its claim to fame, but tennis and horseback riding are also big draws. Book a boat tour, and it's almost guaranteed you'll see dolphins. Local forest preserves offer plenty of wildlife to observe, too, like snowy egret, otters, wild boars, and even alligators.

Known as one of the best spots to vacation on the East Coast, don't mistake Hilton Head's panache for pretentiousness. It's also a hot spot for families with tots in tow, and resorts respond accordingly with both ritzy, world-class hotels and kid-friendly amenities.
