“great location, average hotel room”
Reviewed May 31, 2010

The place is right on the beach, so you can't beat the location. Additionally, it is very quiet, peaceful, relaxing and perfect for families. The hotel was clean, but the rooms are so very old and just need a complete renovation. The breakfast area is beautiful overlooking the ocean and the breakfast iself was perfectly adequate- waffles, cereal, bagels, donuts, etc. There were some minor annoyances. The first night we called the front desk to request a crib and had to call back 4 times as the front desk person said he would have to wait until his replacement showed up. Well, he just left and I eventually had to go to the front desk myself to pick it up. Once received, it had some nasty stains on the mat, so we didn't use it. In the end, we had a good time on Jekyll Island and there aren't a whole lot of options in terms of hotels. However, in hindsight, I probably would have spent a little extra and stayed at the brand new Hampton Inn and Suites down the road which is also oceanfront. The question is whether you want to spend a little more money. I would have felt a little more comfortable in a newer place/nicer room.

I must say that after our stay at the Days Inn we will definetly come back again. The rooms are clean the Ocean view rooms offer a spectacular view of the ocean. There are two seperate but clean pools and although the rooms arent the most luxurious they are very comfortable. The people here are very friendly and it feels like you are vacationing some where far away although for us it was still within the state in which we live. The only thing I wish they offered more of is a variety of breakfast items such as maybe a hot bar. Overall I would say this is a great place to get a little R&R with a wonderful view of the beach.

Our room was very clean and I was very pleased with houskeeping. This hotel is an older one and definitely needs some upgrades and at least one nicer staff member. The lady who checked us in treated us as an imposition which did not sit well after driving 5.5 hours in the pouring rain. My bed was incredibly uncomfortable; it was lumpy and hard and that did not sit well with me either. The next morning I asked the front desk attendant for a matress topper of some kind and was told they didn't have anything like that. I felt the hotel's online advertising is very misleading. It boasts "Georgia's award-winning oceanfront hotel". I honestly cannot think of one reason this hotel would win any award and the hotel is not nearly as impressive in person as the photos on the website depict. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel is on the beach with 2 pools, 1 heated. The rooms are small, with a door to the toilet and shower, and the wash basin, clothing rail, microwave, refrigerator, beds and tv all in 1 room. We had oceanview ground floor, which had 2 chairs and table outside. You couldn't see the ocean as it was over a dune, but it was within a 2 minute walk. The beach is long and at low tide it is a long way out. When we went to the beach, it was just mud. Awful mud that stuck on the bottom of your feet. The breakfast was waffles (stand in long line), fresh fruit, cereal, bagels, muffins, and juice and coffee. Nothing to rave about, best thing is it was free.

This hotel is in an excellent location, with direct access to the beach, and their price is remarkably low considering that Jekyll Island is generally for the well-heeled. The rooms are only average, but the Ocean view is excellent. Breakfast is served in a large view room, and breakfast is decent.

There's nothing fancy about their basic 2 double bed rooms, but it is extremly clean. The bathroom only has the tub/shower combo and toilet, and then there's a single sink in the actual room area. I would've preferred a bathroom with the sink in it, but again, it was SO CLEAN! :) They did provide a small fridge, microwave, and coffee pot with coffee. The beds were rock hard. I can sleep anywhere, but this truly killed my back the first night. I got the wild idea to ask the next night if they had an egg crate or anything, and they gave me a wonderfully thick feather topper. It helped ease the comfort, but we only got one and my hubby & son had to suffer again. I read other reviews that some rooms have new mattresses. You might want to ask.

They have 2 pools and one is heated. We loved that, as well as the hot tub. Felt great in 75 degree weather. It was clean and large enough that you're not piled up on one another.

The continental breakfast was wonderful. They had a large selection of breads, pastries, cereals, fruits, yogurts, juices, and even waffles you can make yourself. The breakfast room is "in the round on the second floor?" and gives you a gorgeous view of the ocean and the sun comes up.

Bicycle, chasses, trike rentals are available right on site. The staff was super friendly and we had a wonderful time!! Perfect location if you can just get a comfy bed!! :)

The Days Inn did it again. They provided us with a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel once again, but this time with new beds and TV's (not that we watch much TV except for the Weather Channel and now the new music channels!). The new mattresses were so comfortable. The sunrises from our second floor balcony were beautiful. A note to the Days Inn Management: don't let Kayla get away from you! She is a true treasure. We so enjoyed the biscuits for breakfast, wish you would continue having them available. But biscuits or not we will definitely be seeing you again in May.
