Closer to nightlife than the beach… quite a long walk to the beach, since the only nearby beach can be walked only at low tide. But it IS close to the ocean waterfront, park, and pier. Easy walk to the lively downtown. My room was quiet, staff courteous, and I was kindly contacted when I accidentally left my phone charger... More

We stayed here for one night and was very impressed with the establishment. We were able to check in early and when we checked out the next day we were allowed to leave our car in the parking garage the rest of the time we were in town (a big deal in the village/pier area). Our bed was very comfortable... More

We typically do a VRBO closer to the beach but wanted to be closer to town this time. We enjoyed the location a great deal--walked to the pier and restaurants every evening. Great covered parking--easy to drive to the public beach at the Coast Guard station. Hotel room itself was comfortable with a little kitchenette--it was nice to have a... More

This "inn" is NOT exquisite as it is "hyped" on their brochure. When I read the reviews on Trip Advisor prior to making my reservation the reviews went from really great to very disappointing. I couldn't understand how this could be until I got there. Since most of the rooms on the island were already booked for a golf tournament... More

The uniquely decorated rooms were really neat. It's location to the pier, shops and restaurants was really convenient! The private, covered parking was a real plus. The staff were very friendly as well.

Very nice place - we had a tastefully appointed very clean room with a glass shower, view of the lighthouse from our little balcony and comfy king bed. Walking distance to restaurants and shops but not the beach. That's ok plenty go parking at the beach. Some rooms are pet friendly. Loved our stay.

My husband, our small dog and I lived on SSI decades ago (well, not the dog). We wanted to return and see how much it had changed. This cute "boutique" type, dog friendly hotel was almost perfect. Our room with 2 queen beds was quite acceptable for 3 nights, but it was really small. I think the main problem is... More

I researched St Simon’s Island for a dog friendly Inn to visit over the Thanksgiving holiday. After reading the reviews my husband called the Inn and spoke with Tim. We made him aware that we were bringing our four tiny Chihuahuas with us and were looking for a place to visit regularly. Tim was very nice about it so we... More

The room was clean and fairly comfortable. The heater was extremely noisy all night long and finally just shut down completely - it was room 217. The temperature was 37 degrees outside so it became quite uncomfortable. They finally figured out it was electric panel shut off and switched it on. It happened two more times while staying there. Secondly,... More

This is our second time and we were not disapointed again, room 302 is huge and with an awesome view of the lighthouse. Yes, you have to do stairs from the second floor but it was worth it! Breafast was great.
