Thank you for staying with us and posting a review on TripAdvisor. I'm thrilled that you had such a great experience on Tybee Island and at our hotel. Many of our guests rave about our bedding...so much so that they want to purchase the entire package. I had a funny experience with a guest earlier this week that ask to... More

We had been done wrong when we rented a condo and the owner switched us to a smaller place that was in horrible condition during the busy July 4th weekend. We were desperate and the Hotel Tybee really came through for us. They had a last minute cancellation for an oceanside room that was in excellent condition and had plenty... More

I'm so glad we were able to save your vacation and that you had such a great time. Watching fireworks from the hotel is an absolutely AWESOME experience. I highly recommend guests that are visiting over the holiday periods to book early and upgrade to an ocean view room. Thank you for recognizing the hard work and dedication of my... More

Our AC unit in our room was not working up to par so the staff changed it out at 11:00 at night. They were fast and very friendly and even got us a fan to help cool it down faster. Cara the night shift desk clerk was very nice and friendly.

The main appeal of Hotel Tybee is the location. It's beachfront with very nice views from the beach-facing rooms. We were lucky enough to see a storm roll in. The rooms are the same thing you get in most places. At least they had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee machine, which our Savannah hotel did not have for about the... More

We loved Tybee Island, but not much for the hotel! Very little Parking! especially after 9pm! Parking behind the hotel was paid parking and not for hotel. Pretty pricey for no parking & no breakfast! Housekeeping was the nicest of all people there!

Thank you for staying with us and taking time to post a review on TripAdvisor. I'm thrilled that you loved Tybee Island...we do too. Our hotel has one parking spot per room and an additional lot that holds another 100 vehicles. We had less parking available during your visit because we were hosting a large crew that was shooting a... More

We visit tybee at least 3 or 4 times a summer , and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! During our trip In March, there was some construction going on, however, the staff was wonderful!

There was nothing special about Hotel Tybee, so I feel like the most I can say is, it was Okay. The pluses: the rooms were a good size, no car necessary while staying here as it's a short walk through the parking lot to get to the beach, as well as to restaurants & shops. The two pools looked very... More

My family visited in August of 2014 just after the management team took over the hotel. We went back in July 2015. Wonderful improvements are taking place at the hotel Tybee! The bright hallways and the new drapery and bed covers are a great change. My favorite improvement was the comfortable beds and pillows! Great for a relaxing sleep after... More

This was my husband's and my first trip to Tybee Island. We were thoroughly impressed with both the beach and Hotel Tybee. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and our King room was clean, comfortable and spacious. This is by far the best location of all the hotels in Tybee. It's only one block from the Pier and Pavillion.... More
