I am not one to write reviews on hotels. Nor I am usually one to care about the hotel I stay. However, I was very disappointed with the Ocean Inn and Suites. I was in town for a wedding and upon driving up to the hotel, it appeared very nice from the outside and was in a great location. However,... More

Wonderful location that is within walking distance to many activities and restaurants. The room was very spacious and clean with a great view of the lighthouse. Teva at the front desk was helpful and informative concerning where to go jogging, what restaurants to eat at, and what activities our kids would enjoy. A very pleasant experience.

Thank you for your review. In a brief paragraph, you have summed up several strengths of the Ocean Inn & Suites. 1) We have a 'great location'. The hotel is within walking distance of the historic "Pier Village" with its wonderful restaurants and shops. 2) Yes, the Ocean Inn & Suites was designed with cleanliness in mind. The floors are...

No dirty carpets here, because the hotel has hardwood floors throughout. Location is great, within walking distance of numerous shops & restaurants. Hotel is doing some refurbishing, which is definitely needed. Your in-room HVAC is LOUD enough!!!

You are right! No dirty carpets here! The Ocean Inn & Suites was designed with cleanliness as a major goal. As a result, all floors are either marble or rosewood. This aids in the thorough cleaning of all public areas and guest rooms. Every hotel must periodically update their facilities. Our guests have come to expect the best. Therefore, we... More

From check-in to check-out it was a wonderful experience. Glenda at the front desk is delightful and very helpful. Only complaint--if it is one--the beds are posted high. For the vertically challenged like myself, it is a small challenge; however, the beds are very comfortable and the room a great size. Coming back soon.

I must admit I don't like a bed-and-breakfast. I require a little more privacy but what I do like about a bed-and-breakfast is that they usually have a quality room which is usually clean ...they don't have disposable cups. If you feel the same way this is the place for you as nothing is disposable. Hardwood floors in the rooms... More

To celebrate our Christmas, our group of five spent a night in the Presidential Suite. Since the suite includes an efficiency type kitchen we were able to cook our gourmet dinner and enjoy it in a superb environment. Glenda at check in was extremely friendly and did everything possible to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The room was exceptionally... More

I'm here now, just got here. We already at the start have a bad review. We were suppose to get a room with a view but because we ordered this room online we got a regular room.

When we took our vacation to St Simons Island this past week, we booked at another hotel. We almost immediately had some problems with it that continued to the next day with no resolution in sight.

We stayed here for 3 nights following a 1 night stay elsewhere on St. Simons. The staff gave us a great rate for a huge suite on the third floor, the Majestic Oak Suite. The main room in the suite had one king bed with a bathroom, chaise lounge, loveseat, microwave and small fridge. Both rooms in the suite had... More
