I wanted to thank the hotel for having one of the cleanest rooms I have ever seen. The attention to detail in the bathroom and the vent fans were spotless greatly appreciated.
Rented two rooms for one night quick stay. Thank you

We selected the Inn mainly because the Lodge and Cloisters were sold out on our dates. We arrived with minimal expectations since friends reported an average experience during their visit a few years ago.

Pleasantly, we had a terrific stay! Check in was smooth and the lady assisting us (Anne) was welcoming, efficient, and knowledgeable. We had a second floor room at the back which turned out to be an excellent choice in terms of quiet and easy access from the back stairs.

The room was large and included a couch sitting area. The bath was about average but serviceable. On the lobby level, there's a cute bar and a golf gaming area. Breakfast was included and the scrambled eggs and bacon/sausage were better then typical "included breakfast" options.

The best news: We slept soundly in the peaceful quietness of our room.

Pricing was reasonable in an otherwise expensive area. We recommend the Inn.

We stayed four nights here for a couples getaway. It was just lovely. The room was nice and spacious and the complimentary breakfast every day was a nice bonus - hot food included scrambled eggs, grits, bacon, sausage and oatmeal, plus bagels and toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal, juices, coffee. St Simon's is pretty small so I found the hotel central enough to anywhere we wanted to go, but away from the downtown area, which gets congested with traffic. We didn't use the pool, but did enjoy sitting outside in the area overlooking it, as well as the lobby area. We loved St Simon's in general, so we definitely plan to return and will definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful time during our trip to Sea Island to celebrate my birthday. The Inn and its staff and amenities were perfect as advertised (beautiful boutique hotel accommodations with helpful and friendly staff in a great location, complimentary beach bicycles and BMW use were perfect for touring the island, and we w joyed the heated pool (visited in February!) and the TopGolf suite was very fun! Having access to the resort was well (beyond) worth it! The Cloister Spa and Fitness Center was the most amazing spa days/facilities we have ever been to - with the many pools and spas, locker room amenities, and an amazing couples massage. It boasts and impressive, tranquil setting with 65,000 feet of use for spa and fitness (only wish we stayed longer!). We had a great time on Super Bowl Sunday (Go Bucs!) watching the game while bowling and having cocktail service! Perfect location for this event - made for a fun last night if our stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Inn, the Spa at Cloister, and the Beach Club. Will come again and recommend to friends and family! Five stars all around!

Now near on 50 years since we stayed hereabouts. Much has changed. The area is much developed with prestigious residential communities, golf courses and restaurants. The Inn proved a lovely secluded and quiet place to stay. The 'Quiet' is both a reference to location, and construction and furnishing with sumptuous carpeting where neighboring guest sounds are not a factor. The staff were warm and welcoming.
My only criticism was with the breakfast presentation and service using plastic and disposable plates.- a Covid carryover issue now worn a bit thin. It gives the impression of cutting corners. The same is not found in the two delightful restaurants a short walk across the parking lot - both a must visit.
In our case we took long bike rides of discovery, the foot/bike paths runs seemingly everywhere around here. We now plan a gathering of family in the near future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn. All the employees were extremely pleasant and willing to help us with any needs we had. Luckily the Inn was not too full so distancing was not an issue and was able to enjoy various amenities without anxiety. Even the Top Golf simulator was thoroughly cleaned after every use.

We stayed for one night on our way through to Florida. It was perfect. Very clean and nice staff. They had bikes, a golf simulator, and a restaurant walking distance but due to our short stay did not make use of the these things but seems to be a nice touch if you have time.
This location is conveniently located near the pier about 3-4 miles which has Shoppes and restaurants to walk down. Nice area!

You are not allowed to go to the Cloister even though The Inn is owned by the same group as the Cloister/Broadmoor and they advertise their restaurants and activities on The Inn web page. The only reason we went out of our way to stay at The Inn was the price was much less than the Cloister, the restaurants were available and we were not able to take the time and enjoy all of the amenities The Cloister has to offer. Don't get me wrong the Inn is nice but its just a road side hotel with nice/friendly staff and a clean room like a Fairfield Inn.

The Inn at Sea Island is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for hotel that has all the amenities you could ask for. I stayed here for a buddy's golf trip and it did not disappoint. The staff is very friendly, the hotel is very clean and they had everything I could have needed. The upside to this location is if you need something that the hotel doesn't have you can walk to Harris Teeter next door and get anything you need. The transportation to the Sea Island Golf Club was easy and took maybe 10 minutes at most. I highly recommend this spot.

My stay at the Inn at Sea Island was truly great. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The agents were also very accommodating. The rooms are quite large and comfortable. My only issue was that there were no microwaves in the guest rooms which was very inconvenient. There is a microwave available in the breakfast room that the staff were always willing to allow me to use, but it was very inconvenient because the room was locked and you have to ask them to open it each time. Other than that issue, I would highly recommend the Inn at Sea Island.

Sorry but I don’t have that kind of access. As far as I know you have to be staying in one of their properties to have that access. The Cloister & The Lodge at the resort gives you that and The Sea Island Inn will get you access to the golf.
