We stayed here once before. The rooms are very nice. The entire place has a fun, artistic feel to it. The staff are very accommodating. The breakfast is minimal. We loved sitting on our balcony and looking at the lighthouse, boats, and beach. My only negative comment would be to stop selling brownie bites for 50 cents. They are in... More

First visit to St. Simon's Island and are location couldn't of been better. The Ocean Inn and Suites is located right across from the lighthouse. Our room was spacious, clean and the balcony was perfect for a gorgeous view. Walking distance to all shops, restaurants and the beautiful waterfront walkway. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful.... More

This little hotel is located right in the heart of st Simons. The location is convenient for everything but beach access. However the beach is just a few minutes away with a car (or a bike). The rooms were clean. The hotel has a pool which appeared to be frequently used by other guests during our stay. The hotel also... More

A nice room, very comfortable, great lighthouse view, friendly staff, many downtown attractions within walking distance. The owner cares about how you are enjoying your vacation. The design and decor of this small hotel is lovely and well thought out.

We have been to St. Simons Island, GA 3 times so far in the past year. All the hotels have been great but this place is very unique. Love the décor, people are pleasant and you can walk to several places from here. It is very secure, very clean, quiet and the price was excellent. We left behind an object... More

Very friendly staff, very nice room close to the sea, just around the corner from many shops and restaurants. Continental breakfast was minimal but good quality. Very good value for area. Very clean. Only issue we had was noisy wall heater in the room.

I stayed at this small hotel while attending a conference on the much-pricier (but nearby) Sea Island. The room was big and clean, with a nice, small balcony.
