Reviewed June 1, 2010

We had the best time at The Bechview Club, the rooms were great (we had one w/full kitchen) right off the pool area, and close to the beach. The restaurant next door was convenient for breakfast. There was a wedding sat. night (that look like fun) We found this place due to the ladies at the welcome center (very friendly) The kids enjoyed the Ga. Sea Turtle center,Summer Wave water park and mini golf...we enjoyed wine on the patio with a nice breeze.
We will return and bring our parents next time (less crowded than panama city beach)

We arrived on Sunday for a 3 day stay. Our 15 month old grandson was with us. After about 15 minutes walking barefoot in the room his feet were completely black because the carpet was so dirty. We went out on the balcony to find empty beer bottles from the previous guests.

We weren't able to enjoy the balcony because the railing was not safe for a toddler. My grandson was able to get his head between the railing and if he had turned sideways could have very earily fallen.

What a disappointment for $149.00 a night! We decided to check out a day early and was charged an early departure fee.

This was a pretty and relaxing place. Second floor rooms look over sand dunes to the Atlantic, which is right there. You can sit on the open "hallway" and watch the sun come up. There is a pool and a hot tub, with plenty of chairs and tables. The grounds are well kept and were full of blossoms. The room was comfortable. We had a great stay. It's a drive to everywhere, but Jekyll Island seems to be that kind of place. For a second visit or a longer stay, we"d rent bikes

My husband and I just returned from 5 nights at the Beachview Club Jekyll Island and have only postive things to share. We stay in a Luxury Suite (Butler Suite) with a private balcony overlooking the pool and beyond that the ocean. The room was very clean, roomy, with nice southern/tropical decor. The bathroom was adequate in size with a LARGE shower. The kitchenette was stocks with plates, silverware, coffee pot, microwave and refrigerator which came in handy for light breakfast/lunch. The jacuzzi was quite refreshing after a busy day of biking/walking the beach. The extra money is worth the private balcony; the view is exceptional overlooking the pool, dunes, exceptionally manicured grounds and the ocean.

Jekyll Island: If you are looking for a quiet, laidback, natural island this is the place for you. The bike trails on the island were the best mode of transportation. We brought our own bikes from Illinois and loved to explore all that the island had to offer including the wonderful array of wildlife. Don't miss the opportunity to check out the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, well worth the visit!. The beaches are extremely condusive to walking barefoot (comfortable sand). The area we stayed in had a wonderful beach, especially at low tide. However, areas on the north end of the island have a much smaller beach (and little if any at high tide).

Favorite restaurants: Driftwood Bistro (for food and price), Latitutde 31 (a little more pricey) had great food and a great view, good staff!

Just as a side note: if you plan stocking your refrigerator do so before you get on the island (Harveys exit 29 on I-95 was where we stocked up). Fill up your tank before you get to the island as there are NO gas stations on the island.

Overall we were extremely happy with the wonderful southern hospitality of the hotel staff and we will be returning!

We have spent several vacations on Jekyll and always had fun. We have stayed in at least six of the hotel/motels there - including the Jekyll Inn.

February's price was respectible at The Beachview Club and well worth it. There was, however, a slight mix up at the front desk on the number of nights to be occupied - but that was easily and politely acknowleged and corrected.

All accomodations on Jekyll appeal to those who are advocates of the beach and all things beach related. The Beachview Club provided us everthing - except the typical continental breakfast you find in most motels today.

We will undoubtedly return to this motel.

This was our second stay at The Beachview Club and we will continue to go back. For those that are leaving weird and negative reviews, I believe you are confusing the hotel property with the motel next door - they are similar in color and style - on the outside only!! The Beachview Club has very nice rooms and is right on the beach. They had a very elegant tent wedding while we were there. This is the kind of place perfect for a honeymoon or wedding party. Motel next door is an old "Comfort Inn" and it was rough years ago, so I can only imagine what it looks like now - the photo of the Beachview Club sort of looks like this place, so don't believe all you read. On the river side of the island, stay at the Jekyll Island Club Hote (sort of pricey), on the beach side - Stay here for nice rooms with kitchen, and for a chain motel, go to the Hampton Inn.

We went to Jekyl Island on vacation and we LOVED it !! We stayed at the Beachview Club and was very pleased, everyone was so nice and the accomondations were wonderful ! It is so relaxing and layed back there no one screaming, partying, and some one aggrivating you. We could not believe all the wildlife that is on the island . The night we got to the BeachView there were deer standing in grass out front !! We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The best place in the world to eat is the Rah-Bar and Latitude 31 was all great ! The only complaint that I had is they need some more shops with different souveniers. Can't wait till vacation next year. Like I said the only place we will ever stay !
