“I have stayed here several times and other family members too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The Room was clean, the people were Friendly and very helpful to our needs. We had a great time. Other family ask me wher to stay on several occasions and They stayed here also. They agree that they had a good stay.Its Dog Friendly and that is a plus if you have one.We had nice walks on the Beach and enjoyed the coffee as the sun set over the Ocean. It was Quiet and relaxing. More pillows would have been nice. Other then that, We were very happy. Thanks.

We chose this hotel because they allow dogs... We stayed December 8. It's a superb location, but it's a shame the rooms are so yucky. We had to go buy bleach spray for the bathroom! I have never seen mold like that before! It was even on the ceiling!! What is so disappointing is that bleach is cheap, why dont they use it? Complete lack of detail.. if they are lazy with that, what other corners are they cutting? Also, the carpet was completely torn away from the walls, like they just threw it in (years ago, it is old too) and didn't stretch it to fit. A BIG error on their part is also the lack of good lighting outside the rooms and grounds at night. We were in rm 815 on the beach side, and at night it was so dark and dangerous. Bring a flash light! They have a little area with lounge chairs and we would have loved to sit and enjoy, but there were NO lights! Totally unsafe. So instead, we had to sit in that nasty room even though it was only 7 pm! Complaining did no good. No one seemed to care. Complete waste of money!

Room Tip: Just don't choose this motel and you will be fine.

Dear KellyandKristen,

We were so disappointed to see your review here. The conditions you experienced are highly unusual and troubling at the same time. Our staff is well trained to respond to guest concerns and I trust that we properly handled the cleanliness issues, after you brought them to our attention.

We do maintain extremely low lighting on the property's oceanfront lawn in an effort to protect nesting sea turtles in the area. We're sorry that you did not see the information left in your room to that effect.

Regards,

Jason Smith

I have stayed in the same room in December over the past several years. The room is always clean and the staff is beyond excellent. They are always friendly and very helpful. I bring a group and it is great having the restaurant right next door. Rose at the front desk is a great PR person for property. She treats everyone like her next door neighbor.

This was our second stay. My review of our previous stay wasn't great. We went back because they are pet friendly. Surprisingly on this stay our room was clean, linens were fresh, and the grounds were spotless. Like last time, the bathroom was old and the bed was uncomfortable. Check in was incredibly slow. if you know what to expect and manage those expectations you will have a great time. There is no better location. If you vacation with your dogs then this is the place for your beach vacation. Watch out for sand spurs. The beach view is relaxing and beautiful. I hope you have as much fun as we did.

We have been to Jekyll Island many times.We have stayed at different places on the island through the years.We have stayed at this one twice now,this time getting the "Superior Guest Room" which is ocean front.The room configuration is great,with a nice sitting area next to the bed
area.Could use a few updates(shower faucet)and the bed mattresses/spring are about worn out.
We stayed in room number 216.We will go back here again but requesting a different room because of the beds.We usually go here during Thanksgiving week due to rates, which are pretty good this time of the year.BTW--Second floor offers better view of the ocean.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have better view,check out beds first thing when checked in.

Dear larry2012rush,

We were very pleased to see your post here with another positive experience at Oceanside Inn and Suites. We were glad you selected the Superior Room, which offers a private balcony or patio compared to the Standard Oceanfront Guestroom. In addition to the extra square footage, they all offer two televisions as well. Thanks so much for your feedback. We look forward to hosting you again very soon.

We brought our daughter and son in law for a family weekend and stayed at Oceanside Inn & Suites. We had an awesome visit and the employees there are fantastic and do everything they can to make sure we are happy. Everything is always clean and the staff are friendly and are always happy to see us. At the front desk we always look for ROSE as she is more than an employee, she is our FRIEND!!! Also this trip we met Teoria and she was so nice and sweet and ready to do anything to see that all went great for us. Another wonderful employee is LINDA in the restaurant, she is the best waitress anywhere! This trip we got a package deal and it was great especially the gift kit. We will be back for sure in the spring. Thanks for the wonderful visit. Diane Cook

Room Tip: We always ask for the Lanai room.

Perfect location oceanfront suite with hotub.Staff very friendly, meals were reasonbly priced; the Georgia shrimp n grits was delicious. The grounds were neatly groomed and very clean. Live music Saturday night made for a relaxing yet fun time.

Room Tip: Rooms 100 thru 112 are better choice as away from main areas
