This is the most magnificent place we have ever stayed. Such character. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Much like the Ritz with a Mediterranean flavor. Our every wish was granted. We rode their complimentary bicycles to visit St Simons Island Lighthouse. The complimentary breakfast was made to order and service was impeccable.

Love this place. This was my second time there. The entire staff is attentive and patient. They seek to provide a warm and welcoming environment. I highly recommend Ocean Lodge for your unique getaway. Joe, the owner, pays close attention to the training and education of his staff members. Jackie at the front desk has been wonderful to work with... More

Gorgeous ocean views from every seat in this small, cozy restaurant. Located on the rooftop of the lodge, both outdoor seating and indoor seating are available. Delicious menu offerings including one of the best filets on the island. Plan to linger and relax, because the views are the most beautiful on the island.

A lot of fluff, little substance. The room was difficult to cool. The bedroom air was iffy at best and at regular intervals, it would hiccup very loudly. Too much stuff in rooms...more pillows than a pillow warehouse. Altogether not too pleasant a visit. Upstairs restaurant average at best. Bar was better.

The Ocean Lodge is unparalleled in its charm, grace and service. The suites are luxurious with their original oil paintings and Mediterranean decor. The place is also relaxing and quiet even with the music on the roof, no screaming babies or undisciplined kids running up and down the "halls". The food at the roof top restaurant is the best on...

This is a very interesting property. There was no expense spared in creating a Tuscan-style fantasy. The large guest rooms are actually suites, with a separate bedroom and two baths. One of the bathrooms has a shower and the other has a jacuzzi tub large enough for two. The tile work in the bathrooms is very lovely, very high end.... More

I visited this restaurant twice this past weekend. Friday was awesome. Saturday was good was in good company , but didn't like the fact that our waitress chose to reach over us to pass us our food. Need more training.

Every May we visit Saint Simons for a reunion. This is our third stay at the Ocean Lodge. The rooms are spacious including two bathrooms, a small kitchen and a separate living area from the bedroom.

The quickest route to Italy is here at the beautiful SSI Ocean Lodge. The staff are fun, friendly, attentive; and made us feel perfectly at ease, welcome, and valued. Wonderful breakfast is the best around. I agree, like a castle, with spacious suits and walkways. There is artistic Italian beauty at every turn, on the entire property. Suits offer a... More
