Hotel is alright. They are doing a lot of work to improve the rooms and i think it will be a great place. However their "beachfront" view is obstructed by a public parking lot. All you hear is cars honking their horns and drunken fights in the parking lot. If you stay here dont spend the extra money on beachfront....

Property is in the midst of a remodel. No toilet paper holder in the bathroom and no safety bars on the shower/tub. Large parking lot between the hotel and the beach. Slow internet.

My husband and I visit Tybee a few times a year. Our current stay at Hotel Tybee (formerly Ocean Plaza) was relaxing and enjoyable. We were greeted with true southern hospitality by the staff John and Amanda looking rather sharp in their new blue island attire!

This was my second visit to Hotel Tybee. As always the staff was a pleasure and attentive to my needs. Cannot beat the view from the Ocean view room. The location of the Hotel is perfect. Close to the beach, shops & restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel for pleasure or business.
