They are in the process of renovating the hotel. We booked three rooms and they didn't inform us of the renovations until we walked in and saw them for ourselves. The whole place was torn up. We got renovated rooms but the hallways and ceilings were a mess. We had 4 very little children with us and while we were... More

We stayed at HIE for a quick weekend getaway in St.Simons. The hotel is under construction, and we knew that. If we wanted to stay in a hotel our entire trip, we would have paid the extra money and stayed at different hotel. With that being said, we stayed in a newly renovated room (222) so it was clean and... More

Stayed for 3 nights and was billed for agreed upon price for first two nights. When I received my final bill, they had charged me an extra $10.00 for the 3rd night. I was able to get Holiday Inn to refund the $10, but they did tell me that Friday night is always $10 higher. Trip Advisor did not indicate... More

I needed to go to SSI to help a friend with a project, there wasn't going to be any time for the beach this trip, so we elected to split a room and find an inexpensive room as well. The Holiday Inn is under a much needed renovation so the prices were reasonable. We were assigned a room on the... More

Stayed here while attending a conference on the island. The hotel room was nice enough although the decor in the public spaces was a little dated. They are currently doing renovations so there is dust and noise during the day. The pool is ok. I do like its location being only a mile from "town". A nice stay.

I've stayed at this hotel several times because it is centrally located to everything I wanted to do in the St. Simons/Jekyll Island area. While it is not the most romantic hotel in the area, nor is it on the waterfront or in town, it is right off the main bridge in a quiet "plantation" setting, and the price is... More

I was concerned about staying after reading the recent reviews and I am happy to share an excellent experience staying at the Holiday Inn Express. Yes, there are renovations going on, but they did not interfere with our stay at all. There was work going on in our hallway , but not at night when we wanted quiet time to... More

This is the first Holiday Inn Express that I've found I had to voice my opinion on. It was a double queen standard room. Room#106.The queen beds were of some off size and although I sleep on a queen bed at home with no problem, my legs hung off of these beds from the ankle down. The TV remote did... More

Stayed 1 night while hubby in town for business. Friendly staff, room clean and comfy. Cont. Breakfast fresh and plentiful. Location is further from shops and restaurants than what I wanted and basic cable tv. Hubby didn't get to watch the Braves! And the remote didn't work! (Deal breaker for him) would recommend if you want a nice place to... More
