“Ok......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Honestly I was expecting more from the #1 ranking hotel on Tybee. (According to tripadvisor reviews.) The room was ok for one night. There seemed to be some updates made to the room but some things needed attention still. The room was not as clean as I like, but I am a little picky. The pool could've used a skimming so I was very hesitant about using it but finally did just for my kids' sake. I can't comment on the quality of breakfast because once we saw there were only 3 tables we didn't even attempt it. I do believe that over all we got a fairly good room for the price. However, there is no way I would pay the peak prices I have seen listed for this hotel. It's a good deal for $55 but you would be crazy to pay more for this hotel.

Room Tip: A "pool side room" does not give you access to the pool unless you are on the first floor...

I'm sorry you walked away disappointed. We take pride in offering our guests a welcoming, affordable retreat, but it seems like we have a few areas that are in need of improvement. As such, we really appreciate your insight, and we'll certainly keep your thoughts in mind as we move forward. Thanks for leaving them.

This hotel is very clean. I love the tile floors and that it is pet friendly. The pool was clean and fantastic! It is a close walk to the beach. Joy, the day shift clerk, is very friendly and is never hesitant to help you out. We even ran into her at a store and she was so friendly (when not at work). I will definitely return to this hotel for future visits. The only downfall is that it would be nice if the continental breakfast included some hot food options like bagels, oatmeal, etc. thanks again for a super great place to stay!

I have been vacationing to Tybee for the last 5 years. We usually camp but got rained out this past year. Trying to find somewhere for 7 that is reasonably priced wasn't easy. At Dunes Inn & Suites, Joy at the front desk was more than happy to set us up and the price was reasonable. We were sad to not have been able to stay another night.

Me and my family stayed at the Dunes for the Labor day weekend. This was our 2nd year here. We love the continental breakfast and the location. The staff is always helpful and friendly. I've spoken to them by phone and in person. It's always the same friendly attitude. And Joy is Great!!

We vacation at Tybee Island every summer and always stay at the Dunes Inn. It is our family's favorite place, we feel at home there and safe. It nice to see over the past few years they have remodeled the rooms up front and in the back. We usually stay in the back, we like it better. I just hope they never redo the shell shaped sinks in the bathroom because it makes you feel beachy!!

Also the front office desk staff is always pleasant and eager to help with your accommodations, especially "Joy", she deserves praise, praise, and more praise for a job well done.

We will be back again next summer to spend a week or two at Tybee Island and of course we'll stay at the Dunes Inn & Suites, where else! Find a great spot & keep it.

We have stayed at Dunes Inn and Suites and have enjoyed each stay. The rooms are always clean and the value is very good. They have family suites with all the amenities of home. Would recommend Dunes Inn and Suites for value conscious family's looking for an exceptional value on Tybee Island!

Room Tip: Better values for families are the 2 bedroom apartment units.
