This hotel is a great location on Tybee. It is being remodeled right now so nothing is perfect yet. The remodeled room is very nice with crisp white linens and towels. We stayed 2 nights. No one came to clean our room on the second day but when we brought it to the attention of the staff it was taken... More

Property is in the midst of a remodel. No toilet paper holder in the bathroom and no safety bars on the shower/tub. Large parking lot between the hotel and the beach. Slow internet. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean. If the Do Not Disturb sign is out when housekeeping comes by they don't come back to clean the... More

My husband and I visit Tybee a few times a year. Our current stay at Hotel Tybee (formerly Ocean Plaza) was relaxing and enjoyable. We were greeted with true southern hospitality by the staff John and Amanda looking rather sharp in their new blue island attire! The staff takes their time and answers each guest questions individually to the point... More

The renovations are great. My wife and I stayed in late April for our anniversary and the hotel and staff were great and the beach was fantastic. Was also within walking distance to many places. We also visited the lounge and enjoyed the view. we look forward to returning again soon.

All of the staff at Hotel Tybee were super friendly and very accommodating. Amanda at the registration office was fantastic! Her sweet southern hospitality made us feel at home right away. Everyone checked on us often and made sure we had everything we needed. Our room was on the third floor and overlooked the ocean, we had a newly renovated... More

This was my second visit to Hotel Tybee. As always the staff was a pleasure and attentive to my needs. Cannot beat the view from the Ocean view room. The location of the Hotel is perfect. Close to the beach, shops & restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel for pleasure or business.

This hotel had a stunning view and very friendly staff. The room was clean and newly renovated. You can walk right on to the beach and the hotel had a convinent bar and restaurant right on site. Can't wait to go back.

Thank you for vacationing on Tybee Island and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. I agree...the hotel has absolutely wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel's guests love sitting on their balconies and watching the sunrise, dolphins in the surf, and cargo ships entering the river headed to Savannah. Our location also allows our guests to park their car and... More

I had a wonderful experience at Hotel Tybee. You must visit the nearby "Breakfast Club" and "Rockhouse Bar and Grill". If you do, you may hear "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds and "Rock Me Baby Like A Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show. Hotel Tybee's staff is on point, if you see Dezirae, tell her I...

Renovations are in progress. Updates are needed but didn't feel like I was in a dump, probably because it was pretty clean for the most part. Staff was friendly and helpful. The pool is next to the parking lot (not beach side of hotel), which seemed weird but the weather was too cool anyways so we didn't even use it.... More
