“Much improved!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My family and I recently stayed 2 nights at the King & Prince as part of a business conference. We've stayed here 4 out of the past 7 years. We were pleasantly surprised to see the improvements they've made compared to previous stays. We were in a 2 bedroom w/ full kitchen on the northern part of the property. These rooms provide plentiful space for families. The pools were impressive. New chairs, refurbished pool deck and the overall cleanliness were noticed. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was above average in quality & price. The room was clean and furniture seemed like it was newer condition. This is the first time we didn't have problems with bugs in our room. We would definitely stay again & add a few extra days to the conference trip.

The King & Prince is a classic hotel right on the beach in St. Simons. We stayed in an oceanfront villa and loved the view. The pools are nice and, when we were there, uncrowded. There are very few places on the Atlantic where you are steps from the beach, and the King & Prince is in one of those locations. The only drawbacks were that the lobby is in need of an update (it looked the same as it did years ago) and the villa we stayed in needed an update. Other than that, we had a great time enjoying the sun and the sand.

Room Tip: It seems that the north oceanfront villas have a better view than the south villas.

My wife and I stayed in one of the historic oceanfront rooms and I can't imagine there being a better location on the island. You haven't slept until you've slept this close to the ocean! The staff was great from the moment we walked through the door, we never had to ask for anything. Way too many options for food and things to do. We will definitely be back!

Attended with a conference. Room 266-oceanfront. Pros: We were high enough to see the ocean without having trees obstruct our view. Room had sofa bed, great toiletries, excellent Starbucks coffee, free wifi and refrigerator. Extrememly convenient parking! Only several issues- for the balcony, nice robes would have been a luxurious offer for in room use, the bathroom and sink vanity is unique. The actual sink is small and sits back. My 5'3" self had to stand on my toes fo wash my face and brush my teeth. Larger sinks or step stools should be available. At the pool, an older man was walking by making sure all guests had on blue wrist bands. Thought those where for children. Our name was on the list so he gave my husband and I one and said to display it. We put it on our beach bag instead of wearing it. Between the oceanfront rooms and the villas complex is an open beach access walk so seems like that is why they keep track of guest instead of those just passing through using the public walkway. I would also recommend additional offerings within the treatment cottage. I tried to book a spa day but it was only massages offered. My husband said he had no issues with the conference and as an officer he hears comliplaints. We will be looking forward to returning.

I absolutely loved my stay at the king and prince. Everything was wonderful especially the service. My room keeper Toni was absolutely delightful. Everything was taken care of, I never had to ask her for anything and she always had a positive disposition.

We stayed in one of the condo style homes, not main hotel. So clean, so comfortable, so quiet, so luxurious and relaxing. Great location just a short walk (basically across the street) to beach, surf shop around corner rents bikes which was our preferred method to go downtown for shopping and eating as parking fills quickly. Will return to relax again

My wife and I celebrated fourty-two years of marriage by spending three nights and four days at the King and Prince on St. Simons Island, GA. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the hotel and all that comes with it. Our accomodations were in a cabana room which opened out to the swings and then the ocean. It was a perfect get-a-way.

Room Tip: The cabana rooms are perfect. They are definitely ocean front and very comfortable. We did hear our...
