Second time staying there. Last year it was mold and cockroaches in the room. This time, requested a pool side room, they stuck us in the ocean view. Took a shower, dried off, and about half way through, noticed marks on my just cleaned body. Someone had put feces on the towel I was using. It was folded up in... More

Well, I booked a week August, 04 at the Seagate and just returned today. The first thing I saw when we got there were big roaches crawling around the place. Didn't think much about it until I found one in the bed with me! The lady at the front desk argued with me about what a roach looks like, trying... More

We only booked in for 1 night - we wouldn't have stayed a 2nd. We read TA reviews before we booked. Half said this place was great - half said it was a dump. I can see why. The place has a great location - right on the beach. It has a lovely setting. It has a cute pool. Its... More

We stayed here over Easter Weekend, 2004. The price was reasonable, and the view was great. If you're going to the island, a room with a view is a must! Rooms were clean but a bit dated and shabby. The hotel had very limited amenities, but the staff were friendly and the location was convenient to surrounding attractions.

We had a great all-around experience at Sea Gate Ocean House during our stay from May 22-25, 2004. Our room was clean and well maintained, the staff (esp the cleaning staff!) were friendly and accomodating, and we had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. We would highly recommend staying here~~ and actually, are planning to return with... More

The beach view was wonderful from the balcony. The room was comfortable and clean but you could tell that it was one of the older buildings on the island. There was a shortage of parking spaces so you may want to consider calling a cab if you plan to go anywhere. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would... More

Note: I decided to write this review after I had read two negative reviews. My experience was very different from those who said they had such very negative experiences. My children and I went to Saint Simons in November 2003 (Thanksgiving). We called Sea Gate Inn once we were on the island and were given a great rate for an... More

I booked a room in this moderate (for St. Simons Island) motel over the phone after finding it on the web. I listed all my concerns to the person I spoke with and she assured me that I wouldn't have any problems at Sea Gate. First of all, when we arrived, we were put on the 3rd floor. I had... More

We stayed at the Sea Gate Inn in October of 2003. We stayed in an ocean front room that was dirty, old and smelled! The furnishings looked late 70's or 80's. We go down to St. Simons Island every year for a conference and decided to stay at the Sea Gate Inn for something different. It was simply horrible! I... More
