The hotel is undergoing renovations and I had one of the renovated rooms. It was cute and very comfortable! I liked the decor, cozy bed and pillows, and big TV. The room definitely exceeded my expectations. Everything was very clean! My stay was for a quick weekend trip and I wasn't at the hotel too much, so I can't speak... More

They are in the midst of renovations so beware, but it's well worth it. Despite an initial problem (a/c didn't work) it was quickly resolved and there were no further problems. The staff is incredibly responsive to concerns and guest feedback and I am very grateful for this. The restaurant is very good and there's lots to do in the... More

This facility is a very large hotel with two sections separated by a large gap through which you drive to get to the separate registration building. There is also a separate conference center. Registration was fairly straightforward and we were initiated to the parking situation. The parking lot between the hotel and the dunes is town owned pay parking. The... More

I LOVE YOUR REVIEW! I am always thrilled when guests take their own time to share their experience with me directly or on TripAdvisor. I love your review for a handful of reasons. It so accurately portrays where we were a few months ago. As I was reading it, I found myself thinking back on how far we've come in... More

We would definitely stay here again. We arrived late (after 10 pm) and Desirae made our check in a breeze. She went the "extra mile" while we were trying to get settled, while one member of our party was feeling under the weather. The room was clean and had a nice. We saved a little money with a room that... More

Thank you for vacationing with us and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay and the quality of your room. I thought your feedback regarding inland facing rooms was spot on and I hope other TripAdvisor readers take it to heart. Inland facing rooms save our guests a considerable amount of money and upper floors get... More

My husband and I needed sometime away after we had guests for a little for three months. So we stayed at Hotel Tybee. Was a very good choice. The cleaning crew was on it. We needed towels we got it. We left a tablet, out laptop, and our smart watches in the room daily. We would return to our bed... More

This hotel wasn't bad. We had a top floor beach side balcony room. Keeping in mind this hotel is currently remodeling. The room wasn't bad at all. It was very clean had an upgraded tv and the hotel restaurant/bar was newly renovated and open. The food was great and the staff was very friendly. This hotel is also walking distance... More

Know that it is an older property & is going through current renovations. It will be very nice when complete. We payed a fair price for King room non ocean view over Easter weekend. Lots of hotel...

This is a nice property, however just realize that if you are on the Island facing rooms that all of the equipment will stop that long awaited sleep in on vacation. They start up early in the morning, had I known this I would have opted for the ocean view or checked out other options. I realize the renovations are... More

We stayed here April 1, 2015. We did not make reservations so we could not stay additional nights due to the hotel being booked up (which is understandable).
