“Updated hotel along the Georgia coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

I recently stayed at the King and Prince for a wedding weekend. I had been concerned about staying there because of past stories about it being out of date. I was wrong...at least for the lobby, bar, pool, and ocean side rooms. All the areas we were in had been updated. The staff was great and we had a wonderful time. I would go back. I would also upgrade to the ocean view rooms...very nice.

Room Tip: Ocean view is the way to go.

My husband drove in from Charleston SC. It was a beautiful weekend. The people were friendly and the service was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone.

The area is wonderful. We rented a sailboat and rode bikes. All rentals in the area.

Very nice hotel in great location directly on a great stretch of beach. Friendly staff, clean rooms, immaculate pool & grounds. Veronica checked us in and was friendly and professional. She gave us a great room with a pool & ocean view and gave us a brief history of the hotel. The tide goes out a long way and the beach is firm and flat…great for walking.

Disappointed in our partial ocean view 2BR rental villa. Although we received an early check-in, we requested an upper floor unit and we were given the ground floor. We requested down free pillows and none was available. While our villa was clean, the furnishings were very old and furniture worn. It appears the unit had not been remodeled or updated since it was built. The sofa, chairs, and beds were uncomfortable and the toilet ran all night. Additionally, construction began early in the morning and lasted through the day on a unit two doors down. Not pleasant or relaxing to listen to drills and tile saws all day.The wireless internet was also sporadic and did not work in either of the two bedrooms. Our partial ocean view was not worth the money since we were on the ground floor and had to look past the south villa pool to see the ocean.The pool and hot tub were not heated and we had to use the main pool. It also appeared to be off season at the King and Prince - other than paying $5 for a can of tennis balls and renting tennis racquets, there was nothing else to do for our family of four. One would think that with the newly remodeled and renovated hotel lobby that the rest of the hotel would have the same luxurious accommodations and amenities, they did not and we will not return.

Room Tip: Inquire if there are updated and renovated rooms before making a reservation. Be warned that the coa...
