“Returned wallet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Many thanks to Oceanside Inn and Suites for mailing our golf student's wallet back after he left it at a tournament!! As an international student, it is more difficult to replace debit cards and driver's licenses so his expression was sheer joy when the package arrived ;-D Honesty and integrity is rare so we appreciate the hotel staff's time and sense of responsibility! We will return next year for the HJGT golf event!

Hotel is an older hotel so if you want a fancy new spot, this is not it. We have read a lot of reviews on it and almost didn't stay here because of those reviews. However, we are really happy we decided to give it a chance. The room was spacious, clean and bug free!!! The beds were comfy and the view is great!! By far the best location on Jekyll Island!! Clearly whatever issues the hotel has had in the past, they are working diligently to fix them. We got a free upgrade to an oceanfront room and had a wonderful stay!! The service was great at the hotel. We didn't care much for the Sand Bar and Grill restaurant there on the property. The service was slow, the staff was not friendly and we even heard a waitress complaining to the bartender about how someone wanted their water.....??? Stay here it's great, eat somewhere else!!!

For the past 19 years, I have been responsible for planning an annual convention for between 300 to 400 members of a SEDiv organization. We moved to the Oceanside Inn & Suites six years ago. My experience has been 99% positive with the staff and the hotel. We do come in January each year when the Island is generally free of tourists. Of course, this presents quite a task to the staff since we normally fill the hotel. In our years here, never have we had a problem that was not immediately fixed. And we have an awards banquet that seats between 325 to 350. Believe it or not, the staff is able to serve that many in less than 45 minutes so that we can get on to the awards and finish at a reasonable hour.
I have also been a guest of the hotel in the middle of the summer. The service then is just as good as the service when we have the entire hotel booked. I can guarantee you that you will be greeted with pure southern hospitality. The restaurant, the Sandbar Grill, serves excellent, reasonably priced meals. I'm a big fan of the fish and chips. And they have real sweet tea.
Even though this hotel has been on the Island for years, it is excellent condition for a hotel located directly on the beach. If you want a real treat, stay in one of the lanai rooms. I'll let you discover why for yourself.
BTW, for those of you who like a game of chance, there is a casino boat that operates every night. They have slots and table games plus a small buffet dinner for just a $10 boarding fee. If I recall correctly, it is called the Emerald Princess. It's located just as you turn onto the Jekyll Island causeway.

Room Tip: Reserve an upstairs room for a better view of the ocean.

The Island Side Guestroom was awful; it was run-down and repulsive. After one night of trying to stay in the room, we complained to the front desk staff, and Charneka upgraded us to one of the Suites. There was a drastic difference between the two rooms, and Charneka’s sympathetic attitude and helpfulness improved our disappointed moods about our vacation. Prior to speaking with Charneka, I was going to give Oceanside Inn & Suites a very poor rating!

I still believe Oceanside should condemn their guestrooms and only rent the hotel suites, and I will never use Expedia again because they should have higher standards.

I desided to try another hotel on Jekyll. This was a good choice. The hotel is not mired under dark dismal an damp trees. I love trees, but when I go to the beach I prefer Sun! The staff here also shines with pleasentness. The rooms are a little dated but I understandd a major rennovation has been approved and scheduled for Fall of this year. I suggest you vist before the rennovation to enjoy what once was.

We picked this hotel based on the photos online. To say it is not as shown is an understatement. While it was clean and offered an oven view the rest was a total disappointment. Just an FYI if you are Big and Tall the bathroom won't be very accommodating. The restaurant was ok. The staff in the kitchen was visible and watching them made our decision not to eat there an easy one! Overall the hotel is "tired" and needs an upgrade. The pictures online make it a 10 when actually it's a 3.

Once or twice a year, some friends & I get togehter. We live far apart in Georgia. It's always the Oceanside at Jekyll. They treat us like royalty. Alway nice, friendly & helpful. Oceanside also has one of the best restaurants on the Island. Try it, you'll like it. Hopefully, love it as we do.
