Have enjoyed staying at Oceanside Inn many times over the last several years. Rose has always been very accomodating, helpful and friendly. I hope she will continue to be on the team for Holiday Inn once they change over. The Sandbar and Grill has always been enjoyable as well, especially when they have live music. The renovation plans look amazing - I just hope I can afford to stay there after the re-opening!

We went to Jekyll Island for the shrimp and grits festival and stayed at the Oceanside Inn & Suites. A lady named Rose really helped make our stay GREAT. The hotel was a little old but I understand Holiday Inns is going to remodel. But even though sometimes the people you come in contact with make a big difference and Rose did just that. The day bartender "Lance" at the Sand Bar and grille was very good, he accomodated us well but thier nightshift people STUNK.

Jekyll Island Ga. is known as Georgia's jewel. Well at the Oceanside Inn and Suites is "Jekyll's Rose". Rose Meixel. Everytime we go there,she treats us like the most important people in the world.She really has a way with people, and when she talks it almost sounds like she's singing.She and her staff are so accommodating.They do everything they can to give you a wonderful stay. Great rooms,views,pool,spa and a great little restaurant called the Sandbar and Grill.They are about to go through renovations,can't wait to see the changes next year. And we always look forward to seeing our friend "The Rose of Jekyll."

I have been coming to Oceanside or "The Wanderer" since I was a little girl in the early 1960's. I am very sad to see it go but I know the new Holiday Inn Resort will be beautiful and a great place to bring the grand kids! We will keep the tradition going! Working at Oceanside for years is one of the kindest ladies I've ever met, Rose Meixsel!!! PLEASE keep her there and let TRADITION live on!!!!

Our stay was bittersweet, it was the last weekend they will be open, before the massive renovation starts. With that said you could not tell this was the case, everybody was upbeat and still cared about your needs. I certainly hope they bring back the same staff that took care of us. Lance is the bartender that waited on us, we had really great hamburgers & fries, seafood chowder, and Bloody Mary's, he even let us have a little sample of their Shrimp and Grits!! The best gem of them all is Rose Meixsel, who takes care of everyone at the front desk, questions, problems, or directions, she can take care of everything!! We are certainly coming back for The Shrimp & Grits Festival next year and want to stay at this new property as a "Holiday Inn", I will make sure Rose is back first!! A big hug for Rose and hope to see you next year!!

The hotel is old but very clean and a staff that is great. The restaurant was great. Staff was very efficient. They even knew what we wanted to drink in the morning so that brought our drinks out before even taking our order

Room Tip: All the rooms are great we had a good view of the ocean and everything was very close
