“Great location for a great price!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We literally don't have a single complaint about this place. The TV was huge and the bed was really comfortable and you didn't have to get out of the bed to reach the mini fridge, so my boyfriend was beyond thrilled when playoff football rolled around.

We walked to J. Mac's and The Georgia Sea Grill restaurants, and were incredibly pleased by both, as well as the strolls along the ocean and pier that we were able to take because we were so close.

The desk staff was very friendly, and the continental breakfast was fresh. Even the other guests staying at the restaurant were cheerful, and always had a smile when you met them in the hall or elevator.

For three nights, with the ocean a block away and all the shops and entertainment of St. Simons within walking distance, we spent less than $300. That is a GREAT deal. Will be staying here again!

Pros: really good location; bed firm; management friendly and helpful; clean; continental breakfast included

Cons: soundproofing very poor--although the area was quiet, was able to hear neighboring guests far more than reasonable; furnishings worn, chipped--blanket worn and had a hole in it, TV stand chipped, bedspread dated; non-smoking room but when went into bathroom could strongly smell cigarettes (from neighboring room?); soap provided were those ultra thin bars like you used to get 35 years ago; towels were thin

Room Tip: rooms with balcony and lighthouse view are available

We were guests at the Ocean Inn, along with two other couples. We were given very comfortable suites with a view of the lighthouse. The owners of the hotel are extraordinarily kind and courteous. They made sure that we had everything we needed for a very pleasant and joyful stay.
Hotel is within walking distance of the St. Simons Island Lighthouse, the pier, and the village. There are several good restaurants for breakfast if you don't want the hotel breakfast (recommend Palmers and Mallory Street Cafe... both offer breakfast and lunch all day).

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lighthouse.

On a drive down from NJ to Florida the day after Hurricane Sandy, my husband and I had driven through the night and were in the Georgia area when we could no longer keep our eyes open. We had visited St. Simon's Island many years ago and knew that it was a distance from the turnpike (I-95), but decided to find a hotel in that area. We were beyond happy when we found this boutique style hotel which was clean, modern, accommodating, steps from the water, and right next to a lighthouse. The rates were super reasonable for a place that offered so much. Staying overnight at this hotel turned our trip into a vacation instead of an escape from the storm which was a wonderful serendipitous gift.

While the room and location were great, the staff did nothing to address the barking dog in the room next door. Dog barked for 2 days and all we got was a half hearted "sorry about that". If you are not traveling with a dog, I would avoid.

We sincerely apologize for the situation. We attempted to contact the dog's owner over 10 times, unsuccessfully. We left multiple voice mails with the owner stating that the dog's barking was disrupting our guests in the hotel. Our Hotel Manager spoke with the owner that morning and stated that the dog barked constantly and that the guests had lodged complaints. The Hotel Manager also informed the guest that the dog could not be left unattended. After these repeated attempts with the owner, members of our hotel staff removed the dog from the room and stayed with it outside until the owner returned. We apologize that a fellow guest's lack of responsibility resulted in your discomfort. As a result, we have adjusted our hotel's pet policy so that this situation will never happen again. Ocean Inn & Suites wholeheartedly welcomes responsible pet owners, but will absolutely not tolerate irresponsible ones. We would love to welcome you to St. Simons again, and invite you to contact our hotel's manager for a special offer for your next stay. Again, we hugely regret this situation and have addressed it so that it will not repeat.

I travel a lot for business and occasionally for pleasure but my stay here made business pleasurable - the location is awesome, the rooms are more than spacious but the staff is sooo friendly you won't stay anywhere else! I recently moved to the Island but I'm constantly tempted to go check-in and decompress. It's affordable enough I'm certain to do so soon.

On a roadtrip from Williamsburg down to Florida ...we found this place through the Tourist office on the island by default rather than intent.
The reception staff were very accomodating and whilst the continental breakfasts didn't have much choice ... there was no lacking in quantity. Very necessary when travelling with an always hungry cyclist!
The location of this Inn is so handy to the local shopping and restaurants and given that we were from the UK we were made welcome to logging onto their Internet to check mails etc to avoid the UK Internet charges. All in all a lovely 3 night stay.
