Days Inn & Suites Jekyll Island
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in Jekyll Island
Reviewed July 25, 2006

I have to give praise where praise is due. I was traveling through the island in early winter and stopped at the Days Inn. It was so cold that the room heater couldn't keep up. I got up @6:00am figuring if I couldn't sleep I may as well drive.

The front desk clerk said I should stop by the continental breakfast before I left - I figured at 6:00am on a freezing tuesday, there wasn't going to be anything except some stale doughnuts.

Well I was wrong. The place was well lighted and clean, food was laid out greatl. Bagels, cream chesse, good coffee. Fresh fruits - couldn't ask for more.

The hotel looks a bit worn - but the staff was friendly and worked hard when it wasn't easy. My thanks....

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.

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.
