“Jekyll and Hyde”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Impossible to resist the title, and it was a lot more Jekyll than Hyde to be fair. The positives are its wonderful location, its fascinating history, its sheer romance. Add to that its very good food (and an amazing value deal in the dining room for its 125th anniversary -though I pointed out it was only 124 years actually!),nice dining room and a very civilsed12 noon checkout and it makes for a great place to visit. A few negatives worth noting: the absolutely freezing air conditioning in the dining room- so cold as to to almost spoil the meal since my wife had not been prepared for Arctic temperatures, unless we had the wrong South Georgia.The hotel is also a little faded, but it did not stop us from having a great sleep in a comfortable room after a good wander in the warm November night air- a damn sight warmer than the dining room! It is a bit pricey and there are various extras, such as a resort charge (what on earth is that- for God's sake be honest and just add it on to the room price, since that what it is). However, minor quibbles for what is a really worthwhile place to visit and indeed support.

We have stayed here 3 times and all my family loves this hotel. Everyone who works here is delightful. We did the hotel tour this time led by Sherrie and she made our stay even better by learning more of the history of the hotel and getting to see the Presidents Suite. It is fun to come in the summer to enjoy the pool and the winter to enjoy the beautiful Christmas trees and lights.

Charming. Comfortable. Character. Three Cs for this A+ hotel property! The Jekyll Club Hotel is a beautiful historic property with all the conveniences and comforts of the modern day. Our room had a beautiful verandah that overlooked the croquet lawn. It was perfect for morning coffee and reading and equally relaxing as the sun set.
The staff were friendly, courteous and had pride in the club and its history. The food in the dining room was remarkable and I highly recommend the Sunday brunch which was a feast for the eyes and the palette.

This is our seventh time staying at the "club" and as usual the service and accomidations have been wonderful. Some parts of the Inn appear to be showing their age, and as a result a facelift may be in order. However, the property is very charming and the grounds quite lovely. I'd like to give special mentions to the dining room staff whom always go above and beyond to ensure that everything is just perfect.

Room Tip: Some of the "water view" rooms seem to be a strech. However, a view of the grounds at any...

this november was our 2nd time staying at this hotel. we eloped there this time last year and returned for our honeymoon this year. i decided to splurge and get the presidential suite this go around (have to call, not available online), this gets you the room with the tower on the front corner of the building. though it was neat to climb the tower and get all the good pictures, it really wasn't worth the added cost. i imagine any moderately sized or heavy -set person will have difficulty climbing the 20" wide spiral stair case to get up there as well. book with a AAA membership if you have one, this knocked over $200 of my bill for two nights. i really wish that they would at least include breakfast when booking the suite, especially at that price. property is excellent, dining halls and bars are excellent. we have met a lot of great guests while we were there both times. we plan to make this a yearly event, but in our case it will be no more than 3 days at a time as much longer and we would run out of things to do. we are late 20's / early 30's.

We spent two nights at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel Oct 31-Nov 2, 2012. We were looking for a mini-getaway on our trip south to Florida, and this was a perfect location for us. It's only about 15 minutes from I-95 and is a pretty special place. The main facility is 125 years old and has a lot of interesting history associated with it, including that it was the "birthplace" of the Federal Reserve in 1911. There are many dining options in the hotel and nearly, and we ate the first night in their main dining room and had a great experience. We thought the food was terrific with a great selection, interesting preparations, and accommodating service. We took advantage of a special dinner for two that they were running during October - it included FOUR courses (anything on the menu), a bottle of their house wine (the cab was decent) and tax and gratuity included for $125. A fabulous bargain!! Compared to the Homestead and Greenbrier, we felt is was a lot more reasonable and not nearly as formal. Rooms are available in the main hotel as well as in many outbuildings that were originally summer "cottages" of wealthy members of the club. We had a lovely king room in the Sans Souci building - beware, though, this building does NOT an elevator, so be sure and ask if yours does. The room rate was also a great deal - room and breakfast buffet for two for $195 a night. They have complimentary bikes and great bike paths all over Jekyll Island, which is largely a state park. Although the hotel is located on the "bay" side of the island (with great sunsets), there is an associated beach facility on the ocean side that is available to hotel guests and looks lovely.

Room Tip: Check on room size, location and whether or not there is an elevator in the building if stairs are a...

A wonderful historic hotel that takes you back to the days of grand and gracious living. Service was great. We were assigned a large room with fireplace and small private balcony with garden view. Dining room was top notch and we also had a great dinner at Latitudes restaurant at the end of the pier. I would definately come back here!
