“Convenient location, nice rooms, lobby a bit like a high school gym”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This Embassy Suites is fairly conveniently located, about 3 miles from I-95 and right at the Glynn Place Mall. Though this Embassy Suites isn't one of the newer ones in the chain, it seems to be well-maintained. Our room was nicely painted in pleasing pastels, with nearly new carpet.

No complaint with service.

Having said that, you wouldn't pick this as one of the top properties in the chain. I hate to say it, but the atrium reminds me of a big high school gym. Lots of wasted and apparently little used space, though it is well lit with natural light from the top-floor windows.

The cooked-to-order breakfast, which I always think is one of the highlights of the Embassy Suites chain, was disappointing -- my eggs over easy were overcooked, the sausage looked, well, odd, and there was really nothing special about the breakfast at all, and it's served in a dreary area at the back of the hotel. I'd suggest taking some of that wasted space in the front of the lobby and making the breakfast area light and new.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We are convenient to just about anything one would want to see or do in Georgia's Golden Isles - from shopping in the attached mall to exploring the beaches and history or cruising for dolphin, shrimp, or even the casino cruise...it's all nearby.

We'd love to have you back anytime!

This hotel is very clean with big rooms. It's attached to the mall and has a Ruby Tuesday just inside the mall entrance, which can be entered thru the lobby. The breakfast is very good with a large spread. Eggs can be made to order with whatever you want mixed in. Nice staff and always friendly and they great you with smiles.

If you need to stay on the mainland, Embassy Suites is the place for you. It is located near several shopping and eating venues, some within walking distance, others just a short drive away. Don't expect much of the mall which is attached to the hotel with a direct access from the main lobby of the hotel, but it is a great place to go and walk around, especially if it is raining outside. A few good stores do still maintain space at the mall. The breakfast offerings are complete, for those looking for a meat and eggs diet or for those looking for a fruit,bran, and yogurt diet. You can even have an omelet made to order by the cook. A reception in the afternoon gets your evening off to a good start. The rooms are well appointed and current and clean. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The place to stay on the mainland.

You've made our day! We think we've got the best place on the mainland for folks coming to the Golden Isles, but it's great to hear our guests agree! It's convenient to everything the area has to offer, from the beaches & shopping, to dining & history.

Thanks for the positive 'shout out'. All of us enjoy what we do, and the great feedback inspires us to keep it up. Now that you've been here, we'll look forward to seeing you again and again. Till then, we wish you safe & happy travels..........

Convenience was our priority. Property was attached to a mall and the lobby was dated, not up to other Embassy Suites I have stayed in. Staff was helpful and the breakfast was excellent. I would not choose this property again.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you found the staff helpful and the breakfast excellent, as well that you found the location convenient. As for the "dated" appearance of the lobby, it was completely renovated last year with the "retro" look which is so popular nowadays. It is new, but the color schemes are definitely a reminder of my younger days!

If you have the opportunity to return to the area, we would love to have you back. Maybe next time you will have the time to explore all of the Golden Isles. Until then, we wish you safe & happy travels.....

My husband & I wre traveling with my 86 year old father & this was the perfect spot...
The room was spotless & they gave us one close to the elevator so my Dad did not have to walk far to the room...
There is a door which separates the bedroom & the lounging area with the bathroom in between which makes the room totally private...
we were pleasantly surprised to find complimentary drinks & snacks every evening & a super full breakfast in the morning!

Service was excellent & the AAA discount was worth it...You do need to show your card when you check in...

You've made our day! We do have a great set up for families who travel together. Having the ability to close off the bedroom from the living area for privacy or rest is a real plus. We serve our evening reception and breakfast every day for all of our guests.

Y'all come back every time your travels bring you to or through Georgia's Golden Isles. We promise to take great care of you every time.....

Great place to stay in Brunswick. Located near the newer shopping and dining establishments, the hotel is very clean and updated. The rooms are quiet, well appointed and spacious. The color scheme is very relaxing. The breakfast is so good! It is nice since I was traveling alone to have the mall attached and could I shop safely without leaving the premises.

Favorable reviews here influenced me to book a room at this hotel. We were pleased with our one-bedroom suite, the evening reception which included hard liquor, and the excellent breakfast.

The location within a shopping mall is odd. But the staff is friendly and helpful and there are several restaurants nearby.

Thanks for the positive review! Many of our guests are pleasantly surprised to find that our evening reception offers a full selection of cocktails, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages and light snacks. We do that every evening from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for all of our guests. And everyone needs a good jump-start for breakfast. That's why we offer a wide variety, including the cooked-to-order omelets and waffles.

We appreciate you sharing your response. We'd love to have you back anytime!
