“Nice hotel to stay on Tybee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Always clean and secure. Has a swimming pool with a bar. It is located on the ocean side with a public parking lot between the beach and hotel. Nice staff. Probably the best hotel on Tybee. Many places within a couple blocks to eat. Bars within walking distance. The local shops carry the usual beach wear and accessories. Nothing really upscale. About 1/2 hour drive to Savannah for more activities.

Room Tip: Probably the best hotel on Tybee. Not sure if the cost of oceanfront is worth it since there is a la...

We cannot thank you enough for vacationing on Tybee Island and giving us the opportunity to serve you. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. As you pointed out, we are blessed to have great team in place and an equally amazing location. The hotel will be getting phase one of a three year remodeling plan. The new owners are committed to operating the best hotel on Tybee Island. Please plan to come back in 2015 and experience our improvements.

Until next time...safe travels.

Place was a little dated but clean. There is a parking lot between the hotel and the beach. We were in the off season so the rate was real good and ocean side view. Walking distance from eats and such.

Have stayed at Ocean Plaza for many years, and hope to keep coming back. The hotel is under new ownership and management, we experienced alot of the improvements, so they are really on the ball. You are right on the beach, and have 2 private pools. We have so much fun here. Cant wait to return next year.

We can't thank you enough for your repeated patronage and sharing your experiences on TripAdvisor. We are soooooooo excited about the direction of our hotel. Since purchasing the hotel on July 31st we have been working around the clock and implementing sweeping changes. The end result has been a hotel transformed overnight. Don't get me wrong, we recognize our shortcomings and will be working diligently this off-season completing a 1.5 million dollar remodeling program. This year's improvements will be Phase 1 of a three year plan to make us a world class beach destination.

Again, thank you so much for the opportunity to serve you. Until next time...safe travels!

Brought the family here for a couple days of beach before heading back up north...I called for a couple of rooms and talked to John who was tremendous he was helpful and gave us a great room rate. I don't have a bad thing to say about the rooms...pretty spacious...mini fridge, table,couple of chairs....the bath was clean and very nice. The TV was the old tube type (who cares don't think anyone stays here just to watch TV). One piece of advice is if you want views of the ocean your gonna need to stay on the 3rd or 4th floor. The hotel is with in walking distance to everything you might need. I don't think you can go wrong by staying here.

We're thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your visit to Tybee Island. I can't thank you enough for staying with us and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. Getting a review from a TripAdvisor contributor that has 109 reviews is incredibly impressive and greatly appreciated. It means a lot to me and my entire team. John at our front desk is AMAZING. He and the rest of the team we acquired when purchasing the hotel are world-class. This winter we will be making 1.5 million dollars in improvements. In fact, next week we will be purchasing $100,000 worth of flat-screen TVs. We are posting regular updates on our Facebook page. Please consider "liking" us and becoming a "Facebook Fan".

I look forward to your next visit and sharing our improvements. Until next time...safe travels!

My husband & I stayed here from Oct. 12-15, 2014. All we wanted was a clean room with a view of the ocean that we could afford. We got all those desires. Walking distance to shops, beach, & restaurants.

Room Tip: Choose the 3rd or 4th floor. They do their best to accommodate this,

We can't thank you enough for vacationing on Tybee Island, staying with us and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. As you mentioned in your review, our location cannot be beat. Guests regularly mention to me that they love the fact that they can arrive, park their car and not need it again until they leave. Tybee has "Turtle Carts" that will bring you from one end of the island to the other for just $3 per person. The drivers by the way are a wealth of information. The carts run until 3am ensuring you can let your hair down until the early morning hours. We are a very short walk to restaurants, shops, bars and the wonderful pier. The beach is just a hundred feet to the dunes/beach. This winter we will be conducting a 1.5 million dollar remodeling program. It will only be "Phase One" of a three year improvement program. I can't wait to share our improvements with you on your next visit.

Thanks again for staying with us. Until next time...safe travels!!!

The staff was friendly. Check-in and check-out both went smoothly. The room was clean and well maintained. We liked the balcony overlooking the ocean. We will be back. We went during the pirate festival and were able to wish alot of the pirates good luck from the balcony.

Room Tip: A room near the elevator is always nice.

Pirates Fest 2014 is in the rear view mirror...what a great group!!! I'm so happy you visited Tybee, stayed with us and then took time to post a review on TripAdvisor. As you mentioned, our ocean view rooms are perfect for relaxing and rejuvenating. I can only imagine how interesting the pirates were to watch. My wife and I were down in the crowd experiencing it with our family first hand. It was our first time attending Pirates Fest and we loved it. Next year the kids are planning to wear pirates costumes as well. The fireworks on both Friday and Saturday were AWESOME! I'm guessing your room provided a front row seat. Please know that we will be completing Phase One of a three year remodeling program this coming winter. We hope to share our improvements with you after the spring of 2015. Consider liking us on Facebook if you would like to be kept updated on our progress along with specials and promotions.

Until next time...safe travels!

Under new ownership, we arrived a little early, room wasn't ready, but that's ok, check in was for three and there was a filming and festival going on that weekend. Three turned into four and then started to edge toward 5:00 p.m. before our room was ready. We got to our room, and the maintenance man was still in there doing preventative maintenance, but he was nice and let us settle in. Walls were a bit thin, but again a lot of people were in town this weekend.

We really appreciate you visiting Tybee Island, staying with us and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. I'm sorry your check-in was delayed. Please know that my team members regularly grant early check-ins for our guests. It was a combination of late departures and a movie production onsite that led to us falling behind. It honestly doesn't happen often or regularly. I'm glad that our maintenance team member was hospitable and quickly excused himself. Our hotel is not normally a noisy property, but as you mentioned it was a special event weekend. Some events attract more of a boisterous crowd...this past weekend was certainly "unique". We will be undergoing a 1.5 million dollar remodeling program this coming off season. PLEASE give us another opportunity to serve you in 2015. I assure you that we will deliver on our promise to impress.

Until next time...safe travels.
