Having stated at the best lodging on the island, I have to say that this boutique Hotel ranks at the top of my list for service, creative atmosphere, comfortable spacious rooms and excellent service.

I like staying in a hotel where they actually get to know you and go the extra step to make your stay memorable and personable.

The staff are hospitable and like to build relationships with their customers in order to personalize their stays.

Sarah at the front desk was a welcome treat in her overall individuality, persona, professionism and friendly disposition.

The proximity to the village places you right in the heart of the action. Good food, drinks and shops.

The staff at Ocean Inn and Suites were very helpful as we prepared last minute details for our daughter's wedding. They greeted us each day with a smile and provided a comfortable place to rest our weary heads each night. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I are frequent travelers.This was our first time staying on St. Simons Island. I booked this hotel based on other reviews on this website and lack of vacancy elsewhere. The ammenities that come with this hotel is lacking. What you pay for is the location. We stayed in a third foor deluxe suite overooking the hotel pool. We had a nice view of the lighthouse and St. Simons island pool. We could see the bay on the horizen. The room was a nice size, although the pull-out couch is in a very akward place.There is no room to walk around it if it's pulled out. Loved the hardwood floors! Beds were very comfortable with extra pillows. We had to go to the lobby area for ice and vending. Was a bit disappointed that we could not get the local NBC channel on our room television. (The olympics were just starting). My family and several other guests went to the lobby to watch them. (Direct TV was not working on the older televisions that are in each room.) The staff is very nice and helpful, although several times there were many guests waiting to be helped in the lobby. The gal at the front desk on Saturday morning had a line of 4 customers waiting to be helped. She explained to us that the owner was supposed to be there to help her, but was late as usual. I felt sorry for the desk clerk, as she was trying her hardest to service everyone in an acceptable time span. As stated by other reviewers,the breakfast is VERY limited in choices. We went to a local diner a block away and got a wonderful meal for under $5.00 a person. The hotel is located across the street from the public pool, pier and beach. Less than a block away from the beach shops and restaurants. No need to drive anywhere. If you want to be close to the hub and activity of the island, this woud be the place to stay.

Room Tip: It is worth the extra $10 - $20 a night to get a room with a lighthouse/bay view.

The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and thought we got a great deal. The rooms were large and well decorated. The hotel is located in the heart of the town, near everything. A light breakfast was included.

Perfect view of the lighthouse, short walk to the village, beach ect. There is a miniature golf and a very nice pool for small children and fabulous playground for children.
The hotel staff were very helpful, and the place was really nice.
Definately one of my favorite places to stay.

What a great location for this sweet hotel-you can walk to all the restaurants and shops in the village, also the playground, pool, and pier. It was so convenient to not have to find a parking place-just walk right out of the hotel and you're just a few steps away from the village. The staff here was wonderful-so friendly and helpful!! The pool was clean and refreshing. Our room (the Geechee Suite) was large with comfortable beds. As previous reviewers have said, the breakfast is not extensive, but it was adequate and we focus more on lunch and dinner anyway. Again-we were thrilled with the location and the staff. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The suites are very spacious.

Very nice hotel. The staff is outstanding. Very clean. One of the the nicest most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. I am an airline pilot and stay in hotel rooms all the time, this place is awesome. Great location and fantastic rooms.
