“Great Service, Great People, Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

We stayed at the St. George Inn in mid July 09' . It has three levels, we stayed on the first level in the Magnolia room. The room was average size with a dresser, armoire, chest-of-drawers and two night stands. It also had a frige, microwave and 19' tv with cable. It had a firm, but comfortable king size bed. The AC worked great . The bathroom was adequate, but on the small side with a full tub shower along with a single vanity.

The hotel in general has a bed and breakfast feel.The staff is very friendly and a pleasure to talk to. Most rooms also have a french door to the full wrap around porch as well as an interior door. The first floor has all hardwood floors and 12' + ceilings in the rooms and halls. The outside of the inn could use minor paint & improvements, but blends in well with St. George island and has a "home like" feel.

The inn features a common area with comfortable seating, complementary computer with internet for guests and a larger tv. The hotel also has wifi internet access (we picked up five wifi hotspots from our room). Pets are welcome at the inn, we brought our golden and aussie, they met many friendly dogs on the island. Most restaurants and business will allow dogs inside or outside on deck tables.

I would definitely stay at this Inn in the future, if I stayed under a week. If I stay for a week or more, I would consider an island home rental. I would much recommend this inn over other hotels on the island. This hotel is located approx 2 small blocks from the beach and is a very easy walk with kids or animals.

I loved this place! We spent 4 days in a suite with a beautiful view. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We loved sitting on the balcony in the rocking chairs. It was like finding a wonderful little place all our own. We can't wait to go back!

Staying at the St. George Inn is a lot like staying with relatives: sure, the bed squeaks and the toilet runs unless you jiggle the handle, but the people are very nice and accommodating, and the place is clean.

And St. George Island is a treasure. It's so rare to see a beach in its pristine state.

We got to the island too late to book a condo so we wound up here. Overall it felt much much safer than the only other hotel on the island (Buccaneer Inn). There we some large parties going on there and I did not feel comfortable being around people who were getting drunk.

The hotel has new management and is the first building on the left as you come onto the island. We paid the spring rate of $163.50 a night (tax and all fees included) for the 3rd floor Stargazer room. No elevator and 3 flights of stairs is a real workout. The interior has recently been renovated and everything looks quite nice. This particular suite has 2 rooms. The master has a king sized bed, sink, small fridge, a 13 inch TV (not kidding, but who comes to the beach to watch TV anyway) one small window and is nicely decorated. The bed slept well. The living room is tiny with a pull out sleeper which my son chose not to use. He slept on the sofa. The room also has windows and a french door that leads out to a semi private sitting area overlooking the bay. The view is quite lovely. You are about 250 yards from the water. There was an eagles nest across the road that was fun to watch in the morning as the eagle came and went. The 3rd floor is the top floor and the only floor to have semi private outside sitting areas. On the lower 2 floors the outside sitting area is also a common walkway used to get from room to room so there is little privacy. Water pressure is really anemic on the third floor and showers took forever.

The hotel is across the road from the beach (150 yards). If you like crowds you will love it. Their beach access is right next to the public beach access and public parking area. We chose to go to the state park instead at the end of the island. The park is 9 miles long so you have over 18 miles of shoreline and some really isolated pristine beaches. We were here to fish so I have no comments about anything else on the island. The fishing was good by the way. They tell me it stays good till the water warms up in late June.

Overall I liked the hotel. This inside looks like a very cozy bed and breakfast. The outside has not been renovated yet and is not much to look at. Actually it is quite ugly. There was also no water out side to wash the sand off your feet after walking on the beach.

Was it worth it? Hmmm. A bit over priced for what you get. There are no freebies at all. I could have gotten a condo for the same amount (as a walk in out of season).

Jan and Richard were wonderful hosts with great knowledge of the island. They took care of what few needs I had with a smile. The room was lovely and cozy and just a short walk to the beach. I can't wait until we return. The St. George Inn is truly a hidden treasure of the south. A definite must stay!!!

It was an okay stay
Cons:

I didn't like how close the toilet was to the sink. you were literally pushed against the sink.

Also, the main door into the inn was propped open, I didn't mind in the day but it seemed unsafe at night, even though we were in a locked room


The pros:
Easy reservation process wth Anchor LLC
Nice comfy rocking chairs on the wrap around porch.
We had a nice comfortable bed
The soap, shampooes they provided was great, much better than typical hotel soaps
room/inn was quiet
we were able to book on a short notice and for only one night.

There are only two places to stay on the island if you aren't renting a house. We only needed a place for one night. The other place is the Buccaneer in where I heard from other friends that stayed there that it wasn't that great.

Just expect a basic, no frills place
