I stayed at this hotel for one night, while on business. The location is superb - easy walking distance to the pier and even to some places on east beach. The hotel was clean and easy to find. The AC was cold (just how it should be) and the room was nicely appointed - ice cold fridge, microwave and comfortable...

The Ocean Inn & Suites strive to provide its guests with a 'great' room at an affordable price. We are so glad that we met your expectations. Our location by the Lighthouse and Village/Pier area make us the perfect 'home' from which to explore St Simons Island. The complimentary continental breakfast is designed to get you started in the morning....

We enjoyed our recent two night stay in a standard room at the Ocean Inn and Suites. The best hotel feature is it's location. Guests can easily walk to many different shops, good restaurants, cafes, bars and the public, waterfront park and pier. Our room was comfortable and had a small refrigerator and a microwave. We walked to "Two Brothers...

This hotel far exceeded my expectations! It was beautiful inside and out, immaculately clean (even the stairwells! - I'll get to that in a minute), and located in a prime location. The room we stayed in was exactly as pictured on the website. No carpeting (all hardwood floors), very spacious, divinely comfortable beds, great views! The lighthouse and Neptune park...

We visited St. Simons about a week ago with the intent of finding a place to stay once we got on the island. Our first choice is the King and Prince, but with limited funds, we were unable to stay there on this trip. We found the Ocean Inn and Suites and inquired about the price. We were pleased with...

My wife and I love staying here with our kids. The entire staff is customer focused and more than willing to assist with anything you need. It's got the best view of the lighthouse, especially when it's literally across the street. Walking distance to the Pier and Village. Mini golf and a water park like pool is across the street...

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay over July 4th weekend. We picked this hotel due to the close proximity to the Pier and Village. We did not have to move our car all weekend. The hotel is clean and well appointed as well as reasonably priced for the area. The biggest thing that sets this property apart...

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend. The property is very nice and right in the middle of all of the restaurants/shopping near the pier. The pool is small but nice. The rooms are very spacious. The continental breakfast is not worth very much, but it doesn't matter with all of the awesome restaurants in the area.

The Ocean Inn & Suites prides itself on providing a pleasant environment for its guests from which they can enjoy the St. Simons experience.

We loved this place only wish it had a better view of the ocean. The rooms were pretty with marble tiled bathroom and hardwood throughout so no stinky beach carpet.

Great bargain! We paid an additional $40/night for the Chamber Suite and were not disappointed. The view was incredible. The room was huge! It was a conference room with a queen-sized Murphy bed, microwave, fridge, flat screen, conference table and chairs, and a wrap around balcony. Off this room was a big bathroom with a deep jetted tub/shower, and then...

First I would like to say, If you have $300 to spend a night on a hotel room at the Cloister or King and Prince please do so and don't degrade this wonderful hotel with your bad reviews. I do not prefer to give that kind of money for a place to lay my head at night. Do you really...
