“Nice hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Nice limited service hotel. Rooms are clean with fairly good quality furnishings. Great location and view of lighthouse from the front of the hotel. We had a room at the back with a not so great view of a house, so I would recommend springing for a room with a lighthouse view. The staff is what really makes this hotel. Every one of them was fantastic. It was quite refreshing too see pleasant people that enjoy their jobs.

Overall the room was nice. The furniture, decor and fixtures could use some updating and housekeeping could have done a little better dusting in the nooks and crannies. The inn is walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our room had a beautiful view of the lighthouse.

We enjoyed our stay from check in until we had to leave three days later. As an older couple we appreciated the location - only two short blocks from the village. And a beautiful walk it was. Across the street from the lighthouse and along the seawall through the park to the shops and restaurants. Sunsets were spectacular from the pier. Both the day and night staff at the Inn couldn't have been nicer. Always greeted us with smiles and conversation. The standard room was quite large with two queen beds that are very comfortable. We loved the wood floors. Parking is under the building out of the sun and the spaces are large enough to allow easy access. The Ocean Inn and Suits was a good value. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel have a better view. Third floor probably the best.

From making the reservation to the checkout, our stay was Fantastic. We opted for the Anniversary special and what a pure delight everything was. As we opened the door to our spacious room over looking the lighthouse we were greeted with a beautiful rose, gift bag with eveything you would desire for snacks, a generous box of St Simons Sweet Treats chocolates, and our two certicates one for delicious dinner at the Georgia Sea Grill, which is a must and a Rickshaw ride to dinner and local hot spots. The staff assisted in all our needs. This is definetly a lovely place to stay, walking distance to the pier, shopping and dining...

Room Tip: Top floor middle room over looking lighthouse

We recently had a Volleyball tournament in Brunswick and stayed at your beautiful Hotel. The Location could not be better and the accommodation were perfect. Staff was friendly and the reservation process was easy. The girls loved the hotel and the closeness to shopping and Igaunas were we ate dinner. The beds were extremely comfortable and they had amazing pillows. I did not need to bring my own pillows from home! We will definitely stay at this hotel every time we visit!

Great value, good location for walking to village. Daytime front desk clerk, Stephanie was fabulous! Made us feel special. Nighttime clerk, caucasian gal with tattoos was brisk and dismissive. Comfortable beds, good fridge. Bathroom quite dark, possibly due to the black tile that is EVERYWHERE! What a costly design mistake. Great parking. Stayed Aug 16.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front or you will be looking at a dumpster!

We have been staying here at least twice a year since 2004. Excellent staff and super clean rooms! Two blocks from the pier, shopping and resturants. This hotel has an atmosphere that keeps us coming back! And each room has a sitting balcony to catch that ocean breeze!

Room Tip: Rooms on side that have a view of lighthouse or any suite
