“Don't bother booking if you have children..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We are local to Savannah and wanted a quick getaway. After going through all the details with the owner on the phone, he said kids were not allowed due to another past guest’s child at the age of 7 writing on the sheets with a pen? I guess one bad apple ruins the bunch on Tybee. It would be nice to have that printed somewhere to save everyones time.Very unfortunate considering there are A LOT of parents that have very well behaved children and want to spend$ locally. Oh well, we will book elsewhere. It’s pretty said, because Tybee has the image that Savannahians don’t care to stay local and maybe little things like a set of sheets gives this opinion.

Room Tip: Make sure you discuss who will be traveling when booking.

We gladly accept children over 7 at Tybee Island Inn. This has always been our published policy and it is appreciated by the majority of our guests who come to the Inn for an adult getaway. A 2 star review from someone who has never even been to our inn and who based their rating solely on a disagreement with our long standing policy is unwarranted.

Stayed at this B&B for our 20th wedding anniversary. Staff was wonderful and the breakfast was amazing. The grounds are so pretty and inviting. Easy access to the bench and local restaurants. Will definitely be staying here again.

We had a most pleasant stay at the Tybee Island Inn over the Memorial Day week-end. Lloyd and Kathy are a class act - and Gary. . . don't get me started about his yummy cooking!! Each breakfast was made from scratch, and totally delicious. He also had a "little something" each afternoon for the guests (cake, brownies, etc.) - all were wonderful. The Savannah Room is at the back of the main level with immediate access to the back door - and was very cozy and comfortable. Nice bed, big-screen t.v., (but who wants to watch t.v. when you have the whole beach just a 5-minute stroll down the street), and comfortable bathroom. They provide beach chairs, beach hats and beach towels - everything you would need. We will definitely stay here again and are already looking foward to a future stay!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are up a pretty long staircase, so if you aren't good with stairs or don'...

Beautiful B&B and Gary is a wonderful cook so good in fact we only had to eat one other time during the day. He gave us some good places to eat and we loved it. Gary and Lloyd made our stay very special enjoyed our history lesson's. Thanks guys. We have shared this with our friends. Just sorry we had to return to the real world.

Had a perfectly lovely Memorial Day Weekend! Absolutely LOVED Tybee Island Inn and it was made all the more special by Lloyd and Gary's personal attention to every guests wants/needs. We tried to bring Gary home with us (he makes a mean breakfast and butter pecan cake!) ... Will definitely tell everyone this is the place to stay... the beach was a five minute walk away .. the room was charming and clean. Thanks again, guys for a delightful time... can't wait to come back!

This was my first stay in a B&B..and I loved it. The owners were very friendly and pleasant. They also were very familiar with their surroundings, with useful suggestions on where to eat, shop, visit ect. We had a short, 4 minutes or less, walk to the beach. We could of drove, but too easy to just walk. And the beach was not crowded, very pleasant. I really enjoyed breakfast, what a way to start a day. The property was beautiful, just like you would expect a southern home to look like, big oaks and lots of foliage, very well maintained. I would stay at this inn again.

We LOVED Tybee Island Inn. The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The location was perfect for beach access. Breakfast was unique and delicious. Our room was bigger and more deluxe than we expected. We will be going back.
One more note: Staff was great in checking with us for food allergies.

Room Tip: The Captain's Quarters are the best!
