Boutique style hotel, stayed in room 217... Loved the little balcony and the size of the room. Housekeepers could pay closer attention to dirt and grime, I found multiple decorative art pieces stuffed with garbage and a cockroach. Pool was very nice. Location was awesome, close to the pier and directly across from the lighthouse. Definitely wanted to be a... More

I have stayed in various places on St Simons and prefer to be near the village, so this property fits the bill well in that regard. I was not particularly thrilled with my unit (211) as it lacked some things I take for granted (rugs, hangers), but I think some other units are more nicely furnished. Great location if you... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a mini vacation before my work kicked back off. We stayed in Unit 107. It had a perfect king sized bed. The shower was also big. The location was perfect for us. We spent both nights walking down by the pier and Neptune Park and the shops that way. I... More

Outdated old furniture. The room and halls had a Bad smell. Musty. Old comforter. Bad water pressure and drain slow. Not worth the money. The breakfast was average and there is limited parking. Pay more and stay elsewhere.

This is a condo complex of 34 individually owned and decorated unit. I picked unit 203 because I liked the sophistication of the decor. While I feel confident that this u it had been cleaned, the carpets are so badly stained, it made the whole unit feel dirty. The room had been divided by a hide a bed which shared... More

Nice room with lovely features. Bathroom even had a television! Very clean. Staff was hospitable and helpful. Perfect location to park and walk to all the shops in the village. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a romantic night away. Loved it and will definitely stay again!

This was an imposer. The place was "rated" at 4 Star. NOT. Warning, I can not recommend this to anyone who asks. Example: 1- The Shower - After checking in nice. The room was significantly smaller than what they make it look like. But, that's life. So, we sucked it up. Then the next morning - time for a shower...NOT!... More

This was our first time to St. Simons Island, so I did plenty of research before booking this hotel. Boy am I glad that I did!! When the website told me what rooms were available for our stay, I looked at the room recs on Trip Advisor, and many people raved about Room 106. Now I can see why! The... More

We visited St. Simon's Island last weekend for the spectacular fireworks on the 4th of July and the Sunshine Festival. Could not have chosen a better location!! One block from the water, right in the heart of Pier Village!! We stayed in Rm 302. There were a few steps to climb (which we were aware of), but the view and... More

This is a very comfortable and convenient place to stay. Close to town for short walking trips to restaurants and shops, bike racks for our bikes, beautiful room and good information about the area. Looking forward to going back - still have some places of that beautiful area to explore.
