I stayed at the hotel over a weekend. The staff was wonderful, the breakfast okay and accommodations were fine. I thought the rate was overpriced but, after all, it was St. Simons. However, it was off-season (mid-April) and I felt the rate could have been better.

Very conveniently located, easy access to the rest of the island while being quiet. Room was clean, beds comfy, good breakfast with plenty of choices. Staff was very welcoming & attentive, eager to please, gave good suggestions for restaurants & directions. Guess it was too early for the pool to be open since it's outside & unheated, but we spent...

This is a great hotel, either new or recently renovated, with great, friendly staff. Good breakfast buffet, comfy rooms, I believe the swimming pool was closed due to renovation, but I wasn't going to swim anyway. Located very close to the entrance to the island. Very quiet at night (well, the entire island is). It has a business center too.

This hotel was a little expensive for what you got but the staff was wonderful. The room was clean, plenty of towels. The room did had a musty smell, opened the window and that helped. Coffee was good and the breakfast was ok nothing to write home about.

The hotel was a little hard to find because the signs were smallish and low. The interior decor was cheerful with bright colors, but not overdone. The staff seemed pleasant. However, we were disappointed in that there was no fitness room. Another minor disappointment - we had been staying at a HIE in Florida where fresh cookies came out of...
