We spent two delightful nights in this charming inn. We were in room 205, which had a balcony and a double shower! All of the rooms are unique. Angie was on the desk most of time we were there. She is super friendly. The inn is perfectly located for walking to town or the beach. My two complaints are: 1.... More

This was a great place to learn about history of light houses. They had a short film and for less than 20 bucks you can even climb to the top of the lighthouse and look out to see both Saint Simons Island as well as Jekyll island

We came to St.Simons for a quick weekend getaway and this place was the perfect place to stay! We loved that we could walk to shopping and excellent food choices. The inn is unique and cozy. We will definitely stay here again!!

This was a wonderful little inn. The location was fantastic. Within walking distance of the lighthouse, restaurants, shopping, the pier and the village. Our room was very nicely decorated and very clean. The staff was courteous and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Even though we are only an hour and a half from St. Simons, we had never stayed on the island. My brother and his wife stay here frequently and invited the wife and I to stay with them on a Friday night outing. We were very impressed. The room was very nice. The beds were very comfortable.

Good location. Easy walk to restaurants etc. Excellent parking on ground floor! While clearly stated as "continental breakfast," it was very plain fare on Styrofoam/plastic silverware. They could cooperate with the excellent nearby " Bakery del Sur" for better selections. A continuing night time disturbance after 10 pm was not handled well! Room and service was very good

My husband and I have visited SSI previously and have stayed in a different hotel. We took a chance and showed up with no reservation. They have covered parking, which was perfect since we were on our motorcycle. The rooms are individually owned condos which means they are all a little different. We were put in a lovely king room...

Love the location. Room was ready on time and very clean. Quiet and relaxing. Service was friendly and helpful. Will definitely book with St Simon inn again the next time we come to the island. The price was very reasonable.

Great place to stay! Clean and gorgeous room decorated in a beach theme. Internet and tv good too. Lighthouse is across the street and pier close by. Nice shops and restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend this inn! Beach nearby and beautiful trees with Spanish moss lining the streets!

My family has stayed at this hotel many times before, so when we came back this summer for our vacation, and booked the same room they always do, I was shocked to find roaches in the room.
