    « Great business stop over »

    Staff is always pleasant. The location is great and the price is right for a one or few nights stay. It's not far from restaurants or sightseeing locations. Room is always clean and the decor is modern.

    « Room not ready »

    Came here to check in. I called at 12:30 and they told me my room was available. It's now 3:50 and they're saying my room isn't ready. Check-in is at 3pm. So I'm paying for a room from 3pm on, and I'm getting screwed out of an hour. We have to be at a concert in an hour. Terrible service.

    I highly recommend this hotel overall. Rate was very reasonable. The complex was recently completely updated. Very cute, tasteful and modern. The room was great, bed comfortable. The room size was "cozy", not a lot of extra space. We never tried breakfast which was included. The pool area was very pretty. The staff were pleasant and professional. Housekeeping forgot to clean our room which was a negative. The manager, Cathy, was also very professional and credited us the next day when we checked out. We definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you are on a budget.

    « Best on island »

    Staying here while we work on Condo that was messed up during the hurricane and it is the best day so far on the island had problems with all the other ones but so far this one is very pretty and has the most beautiful swimming pool on the island will stay again. Housekeeping needs to watch for hairs in bathroom (I'm also OCD ha) but still beautiful room and bathroom, very modern and up to date. Great location. Jacuzzi in a gazebo!

    « Best Western Plus on St. Simons Island, Georgia »

    I had a most enjoyable stay. Room was immaculate. Hotel and grounds are pleasing to the eye. I slept very well. I was particularly impressed with the visual appearance of the hotel and pool in light of its recent exposure to Hurricane Matthew and the fact that at least two rooms had suffered damage. Staff and contractors obviously worked hard to return hotel and grounds to conditions prior to the storm. Every staff member I encountered was hospitable, friendly, willing to go out of their way to assist me, and professional. I notified the staff of a leaking air conditioner outside one of the rooms next to me than was leading water all over the walkway outside the rooms. The problem was fixed that day, and when I returned, the walkway was dry. For the price and quality of the facilities, I'd highly recommend staying there. I know I will on my future trips there.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    We were attending a wedding and had made reservations at an upscale hotel on the beach. Hurricane Matthew hit and therefore the beach was not a good option. I changed to the Best Western since it was less than a mile away from wedding site and less than 1/3 the cost of other hotel and 1/2 the cost of all other hotels in the area. Expected a plain room but we were only going to sleep there so as long as it was clean we would of been satisfied. It was quite the pleasant surprise when the room turned out to be very nice, clean and really cheery. They may have been remodeled recently and what a great job they did. Great use of space, good lighting, loved the cubbies instead of cabinets and drawers. Had everything you needed and included breakfast. So glad I switched for this occasion.

    Very nice hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and a good value for the money. Could have done better on the breakfast bar. Was just ok. However, we would stay there again. I needed instructions to find a certain location, the lady at the desk not only told me where to go but also printed the instructions.

    We booked through Hotwire for our trip only to get there and be told we only have 1 night showing on their side which we were charged for 2 nights on our credit card. We also asked for a room on the bottom floor which we did not get. Finally after a hour of waiting to see who messed up our plans we get a room. Only to get to the room and there was like 20-25 men standing around the rooms drinking! We went back to the office finally got a different room, then made it to our spot like a hour and a half later. Went out throughout the town did our fishing and what not only to go back to the room at like 7 ish pm and we were locked out. Had to reload everything back up and go back to the office to have our room keys rekeyed!! Only to wake up the next morning with red bug bites all over our bodies!!!! Never ever again will we stay at a best western plus!

    « Well done! »

    We were at St Simons for a conference. The event was at the King and Prince. We were able to cut our lodging cost by a third at this location. Savings are good and great when we could save and still have great accommodations. The property was just updated. Even though they were still wrapping up the upgrade, the campus was clean, neat and very nice. The upgrade is wonderful. The breakfast had protein options which mean a lot to us. It is a great blend of comfort and modern decor.

    « A good surprise »

    We stayed one night & wished we'd stayed longer. The room was fantastic, well decorated, modern & comfortable. We had a room overlooking the pool, which looked a nice place to be. The breakfast was good with good variety. The staff were friendly, polite & welcoming. We will return

    I will be staying again when visiting they earned my loyalty . Rooms were comfy and contained all the amenities. Pool area under the large moss covered trees was a great place to enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast. Friendly staff and great housekeeping also.

    « Wow, what a make over! »

    This place looks totally different from the tired old look it used to have. Rooms have been updated to a modern, Euro look. The lobby and eating area looks terrific! Location is excellent and pool has even been redone.

    « Pleasantly surprised!! »

    I stayed at this hotel with my fiance a couple of weeks ago. We were on a tight budget as we are getting married in 2 months and the room price fit our budget. We are getting married on Jekyll island and had to come view the location for our special day. I can not brag enough about this place! The rooms were adorable and the pool area was absolutely gorgeous! Will definitely recommend and visit this hotel again!

    Quiet location close to the pier on St Simons Island. Just a quick getaway for me and my 5 yr old daughter and we will return. Loved the pool....very quiet, attractive location. Staff was courteous.....at breakfast in the lobby both morning we were there and we enjoyed it both times.

    « Renovations, Location, and Price Make this a Winner! »

    My wife and I took a vacation over Labor Day weekend. I didn't want to spend Labor Day weekend prices on hotels on the island, so I was quite relieved to find this location. It just finished a renovation about two weeks ago and the place really feels it. The lobby is very nice decorated and the rooms were spacious and very clean. We were thoroughly impressed with all the features, the decorations and definitely enjoyed the pool, which was right outside our room. The hotel staff was courteous and attentive when we asked for assistance as well. We enjoyed the location as well, although at night we drove past the turn a few times even after having been there, so just be aware of that! The ONLY downside was the breakfast. The food was decent (eggs, sausage, waffles) but there was no fresh fruit and the organization of the space meant there was pretty cramped quarters getting in line to get food or getting out of line to a seat. Saturday it wasn't a problem, but Sunday it was pretty bad. On top of the large amount of people in the very narrow corner for food, the air conditioning must've been on the fritz because it was hot in there. My wife was fine with it, but I couldn't take it so we left to get food elsewhere on the island. That's the only drawback, everything else was wonderful. We WILL definitely stay here again, hopefully with the renovations they don't skyrocket their prices, because they could easily become the best kept secret on the island. Thanks Best Western!

    « Clean, Relaxing, Great Service »

    This hotel is a winner. The staff is great; experts at customer service and so accommodating. The hotel itself has undergone a renovation, so is sparkling new, clean and comfy. Pool area is beautiful. Highly recommend.

    « A perfect stay »

    Amazing place! Very quiet and peaceful location that's extremely convenient to the beach and plenty of restaurants. The staff is so friendly and always made sure to greet us and make sure we were doing well. Our room was so clean and cozy, and the bathroom is nicer than ours at home. Didn't actually use the pool due to a short stay but the outdoor area is very nice and tranquil. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable and peaceful hotel on the island!!

    « HURRICANE RELIEF »

    Due to the Hurricane here in our area, we lost power at the house for almost 48 hours and needed a place to stay. It worked out that there was vacancy. Easy prices, clean, modern all the things you want in a hotel and more.

    This is a great place. The staff was very nice and very helpful. The rooms was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. The pool was big enough that you don't feel crowded. The island inn is also affordable for everyone. Thanks to the staff for such a wonderful stay.

    « Newly Remodeled with Nice Pool »

    The hotel was just finishing up renovations during my stay. The room was nice with updated bathroom and comfortable beds. They have plently of outlets and USB chargers throughout the room along with a small frig good A/C. Free Wi-Fi was also decent speed to stream movies etc. The pool area is great and I will stay here again as it was a great deal for the price when everything else was sold out. I wouldn't pay attention to previous bad reviews before the remodel.

    I read other reviews and saw the horrible pictures and did not want to stay here! But we had no choice because there were no vacancies anywhere else. I am pleased to say that they have remodeled the rooms and the pool area, and are presently working on the lobby. It was very nice and we will stay again when we are up there. I didn't get picture of the room, but it is decorated very tastefully! The bathroom is great! Here is picture of the pool area.

    no elevator and no landings on stairs 15 stairs straight up which with luggage not a good experience shower was awful. nothing worked and front desk seemed unconcerned. rate differed from that quoted by phone, but they did correct when it was called to attention. lady handling the adjustment did not seem pleased she had to correct. not a very pleasant experience.

    I have stayed at this place on many occasions but will never stay there again. I booked though Priceline so the room was pre-paid. The hotel charged my credit card for $93.24 and has never returned repeated phone calls and messages. There was absolutely no incidental charges and no excuse to charge anything to the card. The worst part is that they WILL NOT return any phone calls to help with getting resolved. Obviously the place is on the verge of bankruptcy and is desperate for money. Avoid this horrendous and filthy place at all costs.
