This is a nice and quite hotel. The desk clerk was helpful (I think his name is Ian). You are about 1 mile to any restaurant. St Simons Island is a nice relaxing place to visit. I would gladly return to this hotel. The hotel is under going renovations and we were not affected by it at all (although we... More

Small hotel on lush Saint Simmons. Currently under renovation so be prepared for hiccups. Somewhat pricey for poorly appointed rooms - this is probably why they are doing a renovation. Staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. Arrived late - NOWHERE near by to grab something quick for dinner or a relaxing cocktail. That was annoying. Coffee pot in room, no... More

Location is good, nothing is too far in Saint Simons Island and the staff was very nice. Breakfast is fairly good, it gets you going and there are some healthy choices. Bed and mattress was fine. The hotel is going through a renovation at this time. I had problems with charging gadgets as the lower sockets are ridiculously connected to... More

Have stayed here before its a very clean well maintained small hotel. They put on a nice free breakfast spread and the help is friendly. The only thing they need to do is update the furniture its clean but showing its age . We will stay here again.

I stay at this location once a year for a work-related event. The rooms are always clean, the location is comfortably near everything on St Simons, and the staff are helpful. The breakfast served is MORE than adequate to get ya going. I will be there again next month!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.The rooms are comfortable and very clean, the staff was very friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was absolutely delicious! Good wi-fi signal, hot water, regular cleaning, and comfortable beds. You can tell it is a chain hotel but it is a lot smaller than most so it was still very cozy. I would definitely stay again!

Hotel in a nice area but you need a car and GPS. Staff was very friendly especially Thomas at the front desk. He was so helpful that I will go back just because of that. Clean hotel but could use updating. Nothing that will keep me from returning.

I have stayed many times in St Simons but this was the first at this hotel. The stay was good - comfortable and clean rooms and nice bathroom. Breakfast was very good - bacon and scrambled eggs, yogurts, muffins etc. We would stay here again if we are back on the island.
