More About Hilton Head Island, SC Hotels...

Adventure Travel for the Intrepid Visitor

Hilton Head Island's flat terrain and beautiful landscape make it a great place to explore by bike. While there are 25 bike paths to follow, intrepid cyclists can get off the trail and ride on the beach or explore the town’s historic plantations. Renting a bike from one of the many shops around the island, such as South Beach Cycles, will be much more economical than renting a car.

If you plan to take advantage of clean beach breaks for watersports like surfing and wakeboarding, stay at the Comfort Inn South Forest Beach to save time and money. It’s within walking distance of both the beach and Forest Beach Surf and Cycle rentals.

Horseback riding at Lawton Stables allows travelers to explore the island trails and see farm animals. For a real adrenaline rush, book a tour with ZipLine Hilton Head. Their two-hour canopy tour includes zip-lining in Broad Creek.

See Another Side of Georgia on Daufuskie Island

For history buffs, a short trip across the Calibogue Sound to Daufuskie Island is a must-do. This island is home to a small community of descendants of freed slaves known as Gullah. After the Civil War, plantation owners sold their land to their ancestors who maintained a unique culture and language. A visit here will be like stepping back in time.

Wonderful Hotels on the Beach

Hilton Head Metropolitan Hotel offers a great location for the price. Hotel guests can walk to Coligny Plaza shopping center and its beach to take advantage of the restaurants and entertainment nearby. Those with a higher budget looking for a seaside experience should check out The Beach House Resort. Most commonly, travelers to Hilton Head Island prefer vacation rentals such as large villas or fully fitted condominiums.

Spoiled for Choice with Airbnb Rentals

Hilton Head Island has almost 100 Airbnb listings ranging from poolside private rooms to oceanfront villas. A private room can cost less than the cheapest hotel, making it a great option for budget travelers in Hilton Head. When traveling as a family or group, visitors will get better value for their money by renting an entire home through Airbnb than booking a hotel room.

Big Savings on Hotels in Spring and Fall

The best time to visit Hilton Head on a budget is simply a matter of deciding what activities are most attractive. Tourism peaks during the holidays of Christmas, New Year’s, Easter, and Thanksgiving, as well as the summer vacation from June to Labor Day in September.

You can find the biggest savings in March and April when hotels cut prices to attract visitors. The temperatures are nice but the rain and thunder can result in cancelled tee times, discouraging most tourists from visiting. Going to Hilton Head Island during this time means fewer crowds and shorter wait times when shopping, eating, or playing tennis.

May, September, and October offer great weather and plenty of seasonal activities. May sees the Annual Hilton Head Island Art Festival, while the latter months are best for surfing, wakeboarding, and windsurfing. Locals would say that September and October offer the best weather; it’s still warm but without the humidity found in July and August.

 

Resort Town Bliss in Hilton Head Island

A small resort town nestled South Carolina, Hilton Head is a perfect spot for a relaxing beach vacation. Cheap hotels such as the Motel 6 Hilton Head and the Hilton Garden Inn Hilton Head offer a great base for a getaway near the ocean.

Stay in the Winter for Affordability

Hilton Head calls itself a tourist spot, so the busiest--and most expensive--times to stay are holidays like Memorial Day and July 4th. If you're hunting for Hilton Head Island hotel deals, try planning your visit during the winter.

Enjoy the Outdoors

Whether it's the bike trails, hiking, kayaking, or fishing, the outdoors are king in Hilton Head Island. The Heritage golf tournament is held here each year in early or mid-April. While great for the golf fan, it's easier to find cheap places to stay in Hilton Head by avoiding these crowded weeks.

Enjoy Hilton Head Luxury Without Breaking Your Budget

Finding where to stay in Hilton Head on a budget doesn't have to create a hassle. Several hotels, like the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront and the Hilton Head Marriott Resort, have resorts on-site. But other hotels that don't include resorts will offer top luxury at a more affordable price.
