Great beach hotel. This is our 3 rd time staying at Desoto Beach Resort. Rooms are nice . If you are a non smoker be sure to ask for a room away from the corners where they recently added cigarette butt receptacles . Rooms are clean when you check in but you may have to ask if you want them... More

We stayed at Tybee Island Ga. for a weekend in July. This hotel is on the north beach and therefore a little quieter and child-friendly compared to the south beach area. The rooms, pool, and beach area were very clean. If you want ocean view, be sure to request it. The beach is extremely wide and the water is shallow... More

After 2 days in Savannah we needed to rest and relax. We arrived at 11 am and were able to get in our room. Room was clean and modern. We rented chairs and umbrella and hit the beach. It was a pleasant experience.

My family and I visited Tybee Island and Savannah. Nice place to visit not a lot to see. Kinda small but nice. Be sure to visit Fort Pulaski! A must see! The hotel was nice and location to the beach was excellent! The staff were friendly. We will visit again.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary on Tybee Island and Savannah. While in Georgia, we stayed at the Desoto Beach Hotel on Tybee Island. We paid extra for a room with a private balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was nice, clean, but nothing fancy and had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. The continental breakfast...

Nothing fancy but updated rooms. Probably best beach motel on Tybee and definitely the only one that you can walk onto the beach. Only complaint is poor water pressure in the shower and poor drains I am sure from all the sand. However great service to fix any of those issues.

We found ourselves halfway home to New Jersey and the wife and I decided to take a break on Tybee Island to enjoy a few days of rest and sunshine. Stumbled upon the Desoto Beach Hotel and as luck would have it we were able to get a nice room during their peak season as a result of an earlier... More

We booked our vacation at the DeSoto after reading many positive reviews here on Trip Advisor, but our experience there was far from pleasant. The desk staff were impolite, the room was small, had clogged drains, smelly carpet and very spotty wifi. The breakfast is no more than boiled eggs and stale pastry like you'd get in a vending machine.... More

The location was nice, right on the beach. Could not check into our room until exactly check-in time. Charged us for a towel and washcloth that was missing, that we do not have. When I called the manager, he NEVER called me back, and didn't refund the charge.
