The Beachview Club
Ranked #8 of 9 Hotels in Jekyll Island
Reviewed February 19, 2011

We had a lovely two-night stay at the Beachview Club.

We were booked into a 2nd floor luxury suite. Check-in was a breeze, the service was prompt and very friendly.

The room was nice, a king bed with a whirlpool tub, mini-fridge and microwave. The room also featured a very nice balcony with two chairs and a small side table.

As others have mentioned, the grounds are gorgeous. The property features a green space around the pool and many large live-oak trees with spanish moss. We could also see and hear the ocean from our second floor balcony.

Jimmy was a very gracious host. We wanted to rent bikes for the afternoon, however the weather was less then perfect and because of this he offered to rent the bikes to us complimentary! We took a two hour bicycle tour of Jekyll and it had a great time.

We visited in the off-season and we felt like we had the property all to ourselves. It was a wonderful stay, and we will be back in the future.

Our first visit to Jekyll Island brought us to Beachview Club. I couldn't believe how beautiful the setting was with the canopy of live oaks . The location is just wonderful. The rooms are a little dated but were comfortable enough. They don't serve breakfast which was a disappointment. But with that setting, we will definately go back.

Thanks, Jimmy Dunn, manager of The Beachview Club, for renting us bikes at a great rate, and making it so easy. The bikes were in great condition and you even gave us free baskets to use on our bikes. We were staying at a different location but still rented us bikes and gave us great, friendly service. Check this out when going to Jekyll. Pass up the first bike rental place you come to when entering the island, at the putt-putt golf place. The owner there is rude, changes rates, and doesn't keep his word and just basically difficult to deal with. The Beachview Club is the place to rent bikes no matter where you choose to stay.

Beautiful surroundings, clean rooms, easy walk to the beach, attentive service, conveniently located to historic downtown, bike rentals available on-site, and Cindy at the front desk made everything flow so nicely for us.

We highly recommend this location as we had a wonderful time.

On Labor Day we were traveling from Jesup, GA on our way home to Naples, FL and found a wonderful stopover. From the moment we got onto Jekyll Island the visitor center was helpful in selecting a location. Cindy at the Beachview Club had just updated Ana at the visitor center with their limited availability and great "walk-in" rates. We promptly contacted Cindy indicating that we are on our way and she already had half of our check-in completed upon our arrival.

Our next trip to Jekyll will surely put us back at the Beachview Club.

Sincerely,
John Wayne & Barbara Schaffer

We stayed here for 2 nights recently for a wedding. The rooms are not bad but I found it needed a few repairs and a good cleaning. Cleanliness is the first thing that gets the wife upset. The shower drain is in need of repair. The maid service also did not clean the room very well. We left to explore twice to give the housekeeping staff a chance to clean the room. We thought it would be clean when we returned because she was doing the rooms next to ours. The first time we returned, the room had not been cleaned yet and the housekeeper was sitting on the step chatting with guests. We left again, when we returned 45 minutes later the room still was not clean and the housekeeper was sitting on the chair the next room over talking on her cell. Well, I asked the person to clean it when we leave for the afternoon. When we returned, the bed was made but the bathroom still had not been cleaned which totally grossed out the wife.

My only other complaing would be the smell of cigarette smoke in the lobby area which totally grosses me out

On the plus side the beds are comfortable and the location is excellent

We spent 5 nights at the Beachview Club in late June with our young children. The staff gave us an amazing room rate and couldn't do enough to accommodate us. It is a smaller and more quaint area perfect for a peaceful getaway.
I am a clean-freak and felt very comfortable in our suite. Furthermore I can't say enough about the convenience of a full kitchen. The grounds are absolutely beautiful! We will be back as often as possible!
