3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Had an oceanside second floor room while in town for a conference. It is located within walking distance of the new conference center which is beautiful. Pros - great beachfront location, walk to the conference center, very clean, microwave and refrigerator in room, decent breakfast for most people. Cons - most items at breakfast are of the grain group, breads, muffins, cereal, waffles, doughnuts, etc. No eggs, sausage, etc. The biggest complaint I have (and it is a big one) is that the balconies are lined with smokers from 6AM until they go to bed. If you open your door to leave smoke enters your room. When you walk to breakfast you walk through clouds of smoke. This must be common as there are ashtrays lining the walkway about every 2-3 rooms. Kind of defeats the purpose of having an oceanfront room if you can't sit outside and enjoy it. All in all Ok place for the price.

Thank you for taking the time to post your experiences while a guest at our property. We do appologize that smoking guests had a negative effect on your stay. We do limit the number of smoking rooms we have on property, but unfortunately - even smokers rent our non-smoking ocean side rooms from time to time.

We are looking at upgrading our contintental breakfast in the near future to include at least one protein and other healthy options.

We do hope you will give us another chance on your next visit to the island.

Thank you!

I'm afraid we have to agree with the Jan. 29 review (we stayed Jan. 26 and 27). While the price was good and we were able to negotiate a second floor ocean view for the price we were quoted for a first floor parking lot room, we probably wouldn't stay here again.

Ocean view is just that - one can see the ocean, but not the beach - at least not from our room. It did overlook the pool and was pleasant enough and we did enjoy the seating outside the room.

But the room itself had a very uncomfortable layout and was very old fashioned. Let me say, though, that everything was clean and there was a refridgerator (not noisy) and microwave. However, the one bed was all but touching the heater/air conditioner unit and every time the unit came on, which was frequently, it was noisy and either too cold or too hot (we had very warm weather one day and cold the next). The other bed was practically in the sink and one couldn't possibly use it without disturbing the sleeper. Add to that the fact that the coffee maker was on the table between the beds and there was no way a late sleeper could actually sleep. Oh, and there's no closet.

I, too, found the lack of all-day coffee surprising and I also found the 'no take-out' sign in the breakfast room a bit off-putting. What if one wanted to eat in the room?

Anyway, it wasn't awful and we made the best of it, but should we return to Jekyll Island, we'll definitely find another place to stay.

Room Tip: I would choose oceanside.
