“Kept the lights on to keep the bugs away.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the K&P in July and found both our room and the restaurant subpar. We stayed in the Oglethorpe building and it was dirty and worn. We noticed several bugs climbing across the walls and floors...not sure what they were but made me nervous enough to sleep with the lights on and stay fully clothed just in case. Certainly not what you would expect for the $200+ a night we paid!

The restaurant was also worn and outdated and our server honestly looked like a crack addict. My husband had the shrimp and grits which was lumpy and bland and only four shrip...not good and overpriced!

We did complain about the state of our room when we checked out and the front desk person said she would be happy to give us a discount however because we booked through Expedia, she couldn't. So I guess it was my fault! Why not offer us complimentary breakfast or something else! Anyways, this is the one and only time we will vist Saint Simons as we are from Western Canada and its unlikely we will be visiting again - sad that this was our only experience of what could have been a beautiful stay on a beautiful island.

Thank you for your recent Trip Advisor Review of your visit to the King and Prince this past summer. We are very disappointed that your first visit to our beautiful island did not go as it should have. We do apologize for the challenges you experienced with your accommodation and in our dining room and promise to address them with the appropriate department heads. We are proud of our property and as the second highest rated property on St. Simons Island it is obvious your experience is the exception and not the rule. However we know we are not perfect and appreciate the fact you took the time to give us your evaluation so we can work on those areas that will help us improve the guest experience for our future guests. Our hope is that your future travels could bring you back to St. Simons and the King and Prince so we can make it up to you and your husband.

We are long time devotees of the K&P. We rented a villa in the South wing for the whole month of January. Surprised but delighted that the hotel is undergoing substantial renovations. New tile roof, new lobby/checkin. The K&P is making YET ANOTHER return to her spelndor. Devotees will remember the full makeover a decade and a half ago. Rooms at the Hotel were renovated a few years ago, so now we are in the MAJOR stages. PRAISE BE to the owners!

Room Tip: Just don't stay in the "historic" section". Sayin

We had a very relaxing week-end at the King and Prince. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Because it was January we had no high tide problem. Beach is easy to walk. Would definately return for another stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We stayed here for the first time last fall and loved it. When we got an email from them offering us their winter specials we jumped at it. We were offered an oceanfront room at a wonderful price so we made reservations from 1/10/2013-1/13/2013. It was winter so we did not expect much as far as weather was concerned but we just wanted to stay at the hotel again since we enjoyed it so much the first time. As luck would have we had an Indian winter and it was sunny and in the 70s the whole time we were there. The beach was packed which just made the trip that much better. A great hotel and beautiful weather in January is hard to beat. We can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Oceanfront bldg top floor is hard to beat

Relaxing and quiet but it was January. I imagine it gets pretty crowded in the summer months but goes with being a tourist destination. Stayed in the historic building with balcony room, no problems. The staff was very kind, visit went well.
