Looking to enjoy a little southern hospitality? Hilton Head Island’s resorts and accommodations are among the best in the world. With over 10,000 rooms, villas, and houses on the rental market, visitors have plenty of choices when looking for a “home away from home” during their island stay.

Views of pristine waterways, spectacular fairways, panoramic marshes, or stretches of sandy beach greet guests, whether they’re lodging right in the heart of the island’s hustle and bustle or off the beaten path.

Well-known resorts, large hotels, and intimate inns provide warm welcomes and an array of amenities to guests, including on-site spas, fitness centers, pools, and shuttles, as well as children’s activities, live entertainment, and diverse dining options, all just steps away from superb golf courses and picturesque beaches.

More spacious accommodations are also available. Privately owned villas with up to four bedrooms and magnificent beachfront homes can be booked either privately or though property management companies. Those located inside gated communities like Sea Pines, Palmetto Dunes, or Shipyard give visitors access to the amenities and privacy found behind the gates.

Local lodging runs the gamut from upscale, oceanfront luxury to more modest, simplified accommodations. Affordable hotels can be found both on and off the island, providing guests with a good night’s sleep for either a short or extended island stay.

The variety and number of hotel rooms, villas, timeshares, and homes available for visitors has made it possible for over two million people to enjoy the beauty and adventure of a Hilton Head Island vacation. The southern hospitality served up island style guarantees that many return again and again.
