“Perfect Get Away!!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2009

We just got back from the Ocean Lodge yesterday. What an experience! From the moment we walked in we were taken away with the hospitality, the quality of craftsmenship, and the beauty that surrounded us. We were concerned having left the house ina hurry w/o showering and changing from the days work if we would receive an eyebrow (stuffiness, I am eluding to). No, we walked into the lobby and were greeted with a smiling face (she was wearing shorts and flip flops). When we were brought to our room we were blown away! Awesome is all I can use to describe it. What more could you ask for? The bed was so comfortable we had a hard time getting out in the morning. The his and her bathrooms were much enjoyed (only wish I had them at home). The decor, which we found out was hand picked by the owner, is gorgeous. The breakfast is made to order and we had plenty of time to sleep in, breakfast is served between 8 - 10 every morning. We particulary enjoyed the bikes and the close proximity of the village and restaurants. Didn't want to leave. Will definetly go back!

My wife and I were in need of some stress reduction, so we decided to get away for a couple of days and after doing some research on the web found the Ocean Lodge on St. Simons Island, Georgia. Without a doubt this was the most luxurious hotel we have ever stayed in. From the moment we walked into the elegantly appointed lobby until we left heading back to reality, everything was in one word, perfect.
The staff was courteous, very attentive and addressed our every need. The nightly turn down service spoiled us with the chocolate bar that was just the perfect sweet touch to the end of the day. And the beds were like sleeping on clouds. They had the most comfortable pillows I have every laid my head on. I could go on and on about the accommodations, the meals, the bikes, everything but not do real justice. I will say however that after four short days, my wife and I felt SO relaxed. We can’t wait to go back to the Ocean Lodge.

Attended family wedding, and everything was top of the line. Beautiful setting, attentive staff, and huge rooms with full kitchens. Wedding dinner was one of the best dinners I've ever experienced. Management was super, and when rain moved the ceremony indoors, the entire staff went to work and transformed the lobby into a lovely setting. Highly recommend for romantic getaway, honeymoon, or wedding.

This was our second, trip to the Ocean Lodge, we got engaged there in December. We have found our slice of heaven at the Ocean Lodge. We have stayed at many small hotels before but none can compare to the Ocean Lodge. , The staff is warm and welcoming. The attention to detail is unbelievable, from the guest robes to the linen on the bed. Once you have slept in a bed at the Ocean Lodge you will not want to sleep anywhere else. The rooms are large and plush with 2 bathrooms, best shower ever, kitchen area that has a basket of treats for you to munch on at no extra cost. .The breakfast, which is included, is 5 stars. The chef makes the best banana pancakes that I have ever eaten. We are already planning our next trip to the Ocean Lodge.

Everything about this stay was great. The people that greeted us were very helpful & so eager to please. The room was spacious, elegant, & immaculate. The bed could not have been more inviting. The breakfast was great, & we always felt welcome. This was our first visit, but we were treated like family. Bikes are included, & that was a nice bonus, especially after 5+ hours in a car we needed a break from. Made sightseeing very nice.
We will return to visit The Ocean Lodge again soon, & will recommend it to family & friends.

This was a perfect place to stay. Wish we could have stayed more than 1 night. Stayed in Cumberland Room on 2nd floor. Very plush, Italianesque rooms. Full kitchen, 2 bathrooms. Great linens and decor. Steve, who checked us in, was super nice and helped us with our bicycles (included in room rate). Pat was great also! Breakfast was included in the rate and was excellent. Nice assortment of fritattas, etc. made to order. Hotel is located in a residential area with easy walk to the beach (check tides). Can't say enough great things about this hotel. Will definitely return when the bar and restaurant are open and tell my friends about it!

Ocean Lodge is absolutly the most beautiful and classy hotel B&B on Saint Simons Island The rooms have 2 bathrooms one has large walkin shower the other jetted tub granit andbeautiful tile and georgous oil paintings adorn the walls huge private balcony, the best sleeping bed I've ever slep on the staff is wonderful we would only see them if we needed anything, like bikes, beach towels or beach chairs at no extra cost. when we return for the evening the bed would be turned down with robe and slippers. My husband and I had an absolutly the most romantic weekend will definately return. Oh did I mention the breakfast 5 stars to chef its also included. Gal's get your husband or boyfriend and take advantage of this jewel, when you see and experence it you would expect to pay much more but you don't have too.
