“Deceptively Decent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

From the road, this place looks like your basic unbranded beach motel and certainly not any kind of "club" you would want to belong to. Walk into the lobby and, hey, this is nicer than I would have expected. Walk out to the pool area, back yard and then onto the beach and wow, this is a pretty good situation. The architecture is basic motel - most rooms are accessed by the usual exterior gauntlet that requires you to keep the shades drawn if you don't like everybody in your business. Our king bed room was clean. The appointments were better motel grade including some surprising elements like real tile in the bathroom and decent towels. We appreciated the little kitchen area and the surprisingly good "Premium Coffee" which actually tasted like it. The bed was tired and needs to be replaced. The staff was pleasant and helpful and we got a great walk-in rate in the really low season. This is a nice low-key place with better-than-expected rooms, a postcard view in the rear, on a very pleasant low-key island. We liked it for two nights even though I expect the outside access design would probably drive me mad during the high season. Happy Trails.

The pros-The beach was nice and the pool was acceptable. The back of the hotel was beautiful. The cons-The room was a little dated and the bathroom needed to be cleaned better. The customer service was very poor. The employees were rude and seemed liked they did not enjoy their jobs. I would not stay at this hotel again.

We stopped here for a two night stay on our way to Florida from Canada. We had been driving for several days and needed a place to rest up. Not only are the rooms and service top notch but the surroundings are impeccable. We had 4 deer in the gardens outside our room.

There is no restaurant at the hotel but there are lots of great places to eat nearby.

We love Jekyll Island and hope to spend more time here in the future.

Room Tip: Drive up rooms are available if you are travelling with a cooler and lots of luggage.

My wife and I were traveling past Jekyll 10 years ago and had one night to stay. We went in a couple of places and they were moldy. Tried this place, unsure if you had to be a member, and they had the best suite in the place available, hot tub, fireplace, oceanview windows, really classy place, and they gave us a good price, since not many people were there (a hurricane was moving in on Florida at the time). We were immensely impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I have noted some recent comments that were not that favorable, and it could be that things have gone downhill, but it was a first class place. You might check it out for your next trip, you may be greatly surprised. Their rates may scare you off, but don't hesitate to ask for any discounted rates available.

Room Tip: Upstais is always better in Jekyll because of the potential of flooding on the bottom floors, which...

We booked a jacuzzi suite to celebrate our anniversary. The room was infested with "love bugs". The hotel staff was less than apologetic about the condition of the room saying "this is the love bug season."

I have numerous pictures I'm willing to share

The Beachview is one of the older establishments on JI, so if you're expecting it to have that brand new look and feel, you will be disappointed. Of course, for that brand new look and feel you can pay twice as much and stay at The Hampton Inn. However if you're looking for a great location, with quaint charm, then you will not go wrong by selecting the Beachview Club. The rooms and the facilities are old but well maintained. The Hotel doesn't provide breakfast, but all rooms come with efficiencies so it's easy enough to prepare breakfast in your room. The Club provides bikes for your use, which is another cost savings over renting them on the island. The access to the Beach, which you would not think to be an issue at a place like JI, is actually difficult at some of the Hotels, but not at the Beachview Club. All in all, unless you are hung up about having the newest of everything I would say that the Beachview Club is the best combination for a value minded traveler. If money is no object, you can do better elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard view, which faces not only the beach and the pool, but nice landscaping. The ou...

We stayed 2 nights. The location is absolutely gorgeous, very close to the beach. You can cycle round the island but it is not in the island center. There is a nice pool, quite large and clean.
Our rooms were a bit dark and dated. The beds are comfortable and clean. There is no breakfast in the hotel.
