Rooms are nice size and clean. Very basic older motel. No wifi in room. No chairs or sofas in the rooms just beds and kitchen table. Great location right in the middle of everything going on in St. George Island.

We had a day to kill before we met the rest of our party in Navarre. On a whim and based completely on TripAdvisor info we pointed our suburban utility vehicle straight for St George Island. We are so glad we did! The Island is right out of a late-70's Jimmy Buffet song. The Buccaneer is a $100 per night... More

This is one of only two hotels on the island so there isn't a lot of choice. It was clean, which is all I hoped to get out of it. Ripping up the carpet and putting down tile would be a major improvement. My husband thought the mini fridge smelled a little fishy, but I didn't notice. Nice location to... More

we had issues with our room~ the phone wasn't working, since we had no connection with our service, we needed the room phone to use. We went to the front office to see if the problem could be fixed~~what we got was a woman yelling "not my problem" and throwing her hands up every time she talked. She was extremely... More

We loved this older motel right on the BEACH!! It was very CLEAN, and the staff were very friendly. Parked our vehicle, and walked everywhere we went. Be sure to eat at "The Grub Hut", which is a food truck right across the street from Buccaneer! Best tacos Ever... Blue Parrott for a very nice dinner, at very reasonable prices.... More

The only hotel on the beach in St. George. Our room was spotless and the kitchenette had everything we needed to prepare food we brought. The staff was courteous and eager to help with anything we needed. Parking was convenient and almost everything is within easy walking distance. Only the no pet policy keeps me from being a constant customer.

She was told when I made reservations that we had 3 adults in each room....but claimed she "forgot" so when we went to pay we were charged an additional $10 a room.( we had 2 rooms) we... More

Since this was our first time on the island we got a room at the Buccaneer Inn because it was right on the beach. Although the hotel is older it was clean. Since it was clean it makes it easier to not point out all the negatives of it being old and in need of being updated. It is after... More

We stayed a couple of nights here because we couldn't check in to the house we rented until Sunday. It's a roof over your head and the air worked ok. Other than that, I can't find anything else to be positive about. The walls are paper thin, people are drinking everywhere, the rooms are really outdated. I will say they... More
