“Wonderful location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2006

This motel is wonderful for families, and in a great location! We rented bikes right on the property and biked all over the island. There is only one commercial area on the island (apart from the specialty shops at the main resort) and it is within easy walking distance from the motel. The water park is a short bike ride away on the bike trail. The pools are nice, and the beach area is easy to get to. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, and didn't have any problem with our room facilities or cleanliness. in fact, the lobby has several comfortable seating areas facing the pool/beach. I enjoyed some quiet reading time there. The only problem I had was with the "no-see-ums". We had Deep Woods Off, and still got bit. We switched to a 100% DEET type of repellent, and that worked.

  • Liked — The central location on the island
  • Disliked — We would run into the maid service mid-day when we came back to our room to rest.
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring strong insect repellent and explore all over the island!

This is not a resort but a run down and dirty motel. Our phone didn't work until hours after we checked in. One of our beds was wet so we had to flip the mattress and ask the maid to give us fresh linen and covers. I broke out in hives from the dirty linen. The TV kept going out like the cable was not contected properly. You can hear noises from the water pipes. Tbe carpet is old and dirty. The room had an odor but we always carry scented candles and air freshner which helped. The staff was unprofessional and had no customer service skills. The breakfast should not be called continental because it was just the basics, no eggs, no suasage, no meat, no biscuits, no hot cereals, no bacon. It was only for one night so I was so glad to get out and go home. The beach was nice. It was July 4th and we saw more fireworks across at St Simons Island and wished we had stayed there instead.

This was a very nice hotel - basic but very clean. The location was great, right on the beach and having two pools was nice. The staff was extremely friendly.
