“3.5 is more like it...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The Village Inn and Pub is a funky place; appears to be a hybrid between a bed and breakfast and a motor court...

On the positive side:

1. Location in the village. Easy Walking distance to the pier, the lighthouse, restaurants, and some shopping.
2. Very clean and quiet.

On the down side:

1. Found most of the staff to be somewhat brusque and not very hospitable. They would answer questions but it always felt like they wished they were doing something else.
2. The breakfasts are continental plus. Waffles, various breads and pastries, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt etc. Some of the breads pastries were frozen and not above Sam's/Costco quality. Did the breakfasts for two mornings. Could have used some protien...
3. Rooms/bathooms on the smallish side. Also some of the views from the balconies were questionable (parking lot, the DQ next door).

Nice place. Seems like with just a little more effort itg could be something special...

The room was very nice, the bathroom a bit small for my taste but clean. The closet space was also very limited. The bar had some of the coldest beer I drank while on the island. In the middle of everything it seems and a very nice courtyard well landscaped. I plan to stay again and maybe come for some R&R next time.

Room Tip: If you like it quiet and dark choose a room on the Magnolia Street side. If you like to see it all...

This is a quiet and beautiful Inn within walking distance to town. The atmosphere was very laid back. The room was perfect and reception was friendly. There are some wonderful little restaurants within walking distance. I would certainly go back to this lovely Inn.

Rooms are so quaint--very comfortable and relaxing! The Pub is charming and it is great to sit by the fireplace and sip on your beverage of choice! Walking distance to The Village (shopping & restaurants) and The Pier! A great getaway for a night or more if you have the time! The Village Inn and Pub is a great little treasure and we will definitely be back!!

This is such a beautiful place to stay on St. Simons. The rooms are updated, lovely, and so comfortable. The location is wonderful! It is walking distance to great restaurants, the pier, the Lighthouse, and Heritage Center. The Pub is warm and friendly and the continental breakfast delicious.

Travelers and locals alike (I'm local) find this 'way cool' boutique inn situated in the pier village of St. Simons Island the perfect venue to relax in before walking to dinner at one of several fine restaurants in the Village District of our Island (yes, Georgia does have a coast!). You get a good pour here. Accommodations are excellent; you won't go home disappointed. A great escape village hotel -- stroll to the pier in day or night -- a getaway trip you won't soon forget. Peace.

Room Tip: I've not seen the rooms on the second floor. I suggest the suites at ground level that face the...

We spent our wedding night here after being married on the beach. Wonderful people and beautiful rooms. Upscale rooms and decor. Just what we wanted. Very quiet and peaceful and lovely feel of Georgia with the trees. I highly recommend this Inn as the best on the island!
