My husband and I stayed here for two nights for a friend's wedding. First thing to note is - each room is owned by individuals and every room is different. Our room was nice but nothing special, while the room next door was excellently maintained with beautiful decorating. Then a good friend was staying in a room down the hall that was equivalent to staying in a hostel. Not all rooms are created equal but it costs the same no matter where they stick you. Keep this in mind while booking at this hotel.

It has nice curb appeal and the location couldn't be better. It's directly across the street from the historical Saint Simon's Lighthouse and just a block off of the main pier where all the fun bars and shops are located.

The breakfast was included, which is always nice, but was very basic. Just muffins, bagels, cereal, fruit.

Room Tip: Note - This hotel is unique in that each room is owned by individual owners and each room is very different.

We spent two nights here recently and loved it. Great location across the street from the lighthouse and within a block of downtown shops and restaurants. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated, equipped with a nice little kitchen bar with fridge, microwave -- and real (not plastic or paper) glasses. The included continental breakfast was very nice and fresh. The manger was very friendly.

Room Tip: Photos of the various rooms are online, so you can see before you reserve.

very good location, but the hotel could definitely use some improvements. room is full of strange vases, including 2 large ones on the tiny bathroom counter. even after removing those monsters still not enough room for basic toiletries. there is no bathtub, but 2 showers! cleaning needs also needs improvement. there was a plastic cup with a cigarette stub on the balcony from previous guests. bread crumbs we left on the floor had stayed there till we left. if you consider a room with a balcony, keep in mind that the balcony is tiny and has no view of the ocean.

It's a good location walking/biking distance to most anything you need. Kind of a cute, quirky, quaint little place really. However, it could stand some improvements in certain areas.

Pros:
-Good location right across from the lighthouse on a quiet street, close to shopping, the walking beach and the pier, and a short drive or bike ride from the swimming beach.
-Good rates for St Simons, which can be a rather pricey place to visit.
-The room was nice enough for the price - the beds were comfortable, the AC unit worked and looked newish, and the wifi was fast and free.

Cons:
-My room could have been cleaner - I am the white-glove sort.
-The room was on the lobby level, and it was noisy when other guests were coming and going in the middle of the night, I could hear everything. Upper floors may be better in this regard.
-Just a tad bit more effort on the continental breakfast would go a long way. For example, I would never serve a guest of mine overripe fruit. And the staff should not gather in the guest areas in the AM - they need a break room.
- I did not realize this when I booked, but be aware that this is an Inn/Condo with folks with dogs living there year round. I heard some barking, but at least the dogs were quiet at night.
-Outside doors really should auto-lock with key-card access only.
