Yes, Tybee is different in that it is more of an old-fashioned beach town with more houses than hotels or motels so be prepared; however, our room at the DeSoto was as nice as an average priced room at Disneyworld. We were allowed to view the room before booking since we had read such questionable reviews to see if it was to our satisfaction and were very impressed with the re-modeling. There were no smells! Our room was in the main building so we were close to the elevator, the front desk and the coffee. The room looked brand new with a new, hard mattress on the bed; modern decor; refreshingly painted; updated furniture; and a large shower. The staff was friendly and helpful with our questions and could not have been more accommodating. Tybee is not Hilton Head or Destin so again be prepared. On the beach in Tybee is not on the beach in Florida. If and when I should go back to Tybee, I would definitely stay at the Desoto.
