We visited Tybee Island on an off-season weekend and stayed one night at the Ocean Plaza. Great location, especially for a short stay. The hotel is located just across a narrow parking lot from the Atlantic, very near the pier and next door to The Breakfast Club, a popular Tybee Island restaurant. The hotel restaurant was closed for renovations during... More

My wife and I recently returned from our first visit to Tybee Island. We had planned to stay in Savannah the entire time, however, a tour guide on one of the local trolleys recommended that we check out the Ocean Plaza! It turned out to be a great recommendation! It is currently the off-season on Tybee Island so we jumped... More

Thank you for vacationing on Tybee, staying with us and taking time to post a review on TripAdvisor. I'm so happy the tour guide recommended Tybee and our hotel to you. There is no doubt that upgrading to an ocean view room is well worth the additional dollars. The view from our 3rd and 4th floor rooms is simply spectacular.... More

My boyfriend and I drove up to Tybee Island for a short weekend getaway from Jacksonville, Florida. We had a great stay at the Ocean Plaza--it was exactly what we were looking for. The service was great, the rooms were clean, the wifi worked well and the location was amazing. To wake up and sit on the balcony to watch... More

The rooms could use updating, but for free parking, being beachside, and within walking distance, it's honestly worth it! Just don't mind the bit of sand in the carpet. I don't particularly recommend their restaurant for dinner but beeakfast was great

We stayed here for 2 nights for Halloween. The resort was great. Management was professional and courteous. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The view from the balcony was the best!! Will definitely stay again.

We have stayed here twice and really enjoy both Tybee Island and this property. It is dated, but it is clean and the staff are great. You can walk over to the beach (which is beautiful) the pier and the little shops at Tybee. The room is clean, and has a refrigerator and an older television with cable. The wi-fi... More

My wife and I visited family for Thanksgiving and spent the night at Ocean Plaza. We were both a little underwhelmed by the facade and the strange public parking lot on the beach side but we figured it was for only a night. Reid at the front desk was fantastic.

The good: The staff at the Ocean Plaza Beach Resort gets 5-stars. Very accommodating, friendly & helpful. The location of the hotel is quite good - a short walk to the sandy beach of Tybee Island with several restaurants and shops all within walking distance of the hotel. The not-so-good: Understand that the word "resort" is used quite loosely. Not... More
