“Nice, but needs updates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

My wife and I stayed 4 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The grounds are extremely attractive, and well manicured. The pool is maintained and cleaned every morning. The ocean front setting is glorious. The room, however, could use work. We stayed in the Butler Suite, which is one of the higher priced rooms with a balcony facing the ocean. The carpet is old, and needs to be replaced, or at the very least, stretched back to original tightness. The furniture in the room is old wicker chairs that are worn, and the cushions are slightly grungy. We moved them out to the balcony during our stay because they were more comfortable than the metal pool chairs that are provided on the balcony. Jekyll Island is trying to make a comeback from the glory days of the 70's. There are about 4 restaurants to choose among. One of the nicer (Courtyard at Crane) in historic "downtown" was closed on Saturday night for weddings. We took care of breakfasts and lunches in our "fully equipped kitchen" which consists of a small counter space with a few dishes and a dorm-sized fridge. Clean-up is done in the bathroom sink... The jacuzzi tub is big enough to bathe a small dog, or your feet after going to the beach. The staff are extremely friendly. The pool gets a bit crowded with families who aren't necessarily staying on location, but have a membership. We made the most of our time and enjoyed our stay, but for the cost, we won't be in a hurry to return.

Room Tip: You might not want to pay extra for an ocean view room because a huge wedding tent blocks a lot of t...

Decided to swing to Jekyll Island and spend a few more days before leaving the area. After having a bad taste in our mouths from another hotel on the island (Villas by the Sea which was gross), we booked here and were very pleased. Great location (where you can actually see the ocean) and the product was modern, nice and clean. Book here, The Hampton, The historic Club Hotel... or forget it...the rest of the island is in a time capsule.

My husband and I loved our stay at The Beachview Club. We loved Jekyll Island and can not wait to return. The hotel is on the beach, and what a treat to be able to walk the beach morning thru night, and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Room Tip: Eat at the restaurant next door, very yummy.

My husband and I had never been to Jekyll Island and stayed here to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary. The gentleman at the front desk, Jimmy, was so polite and friendly! The grounds are beautiful and well kept. We stayed in the Butler Suite on the second floor. The room was spacious and had a private balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. The beach was a short 2 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel does not have a restaurant but the Sand Bar Grill is right next door and breakfast was great! We loved the peacefulness of Jekyll Island and can't wait to go back. We look forward to staying here again!

We always stay at The Beachview Club, wouldn't consider any other Hotel. I can not believe the reviews I've read...their ridiculous. The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Our room is always clean & fresh, housekeeping does a fine job. I don't understand why people want to be hurtful and complain about such minor things. The staff will go out of their way to give you a pleasant stay. If there was a problem management is quick to make it right. I guess my question would be..did you come to enjoy a relaxing getaway with a loved one on this beautiful Island paradise..or do you come to critique the room. One lady said she noticed how dated the room was, I bet her husband says the same thing about her every morning. Maybe next time they will stay at Oceanside Inn & Suites next door. Believe me The Beachview Club is very nice.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms see the Ocean better.

My husband and I came here for a relaxing weekend getaway without our children. When we arrived, we were told that our room was changed and was now on the second floor. When we walked into our room, the first thing we noticed was how dated it was. The bathroom was very dated with a broken faucet in the shower and mildew on the walls. The "manager" was very rude and spoke to us as if we were children. After touring the island, I would recommend the Jekyll Island Club. It is only slightly more per night and the grounds are gorgeous! We will be avoiding this hotel in the future!

This is a little Gem on the beach with ocean views. The staff here is much nicer then the staff at Villas by the Sea down the street. The views also are much better. I have found a new home for my regular drive from FL to Missouri.
