    « Last Minute Stay »

    The staff goes over and beyond with their friendliness and customer service The room was very welcoming with no issues. The bed was very comfortable and spacious in the suite. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a great spot that is close to restaurants and night life.

    « A nice surprise »

    Nicest Best Western I've eve stayed at. Newly renovated rooms. Very friendly staff. Large pool with jacuzzi. Premium location with beautiful landscaping. Plenty of parking. Rooms have several amenities.

    « Actually not bad »

    We stayed in March for one night. The rooms are clean but not very big. It was already difficult to open two suitcases. But the first impression was nevertheless good. We had some issues with the TV and it was fixed directly. It was a plesant night and the breakfast was nothing special but clean and taken good care of. So when we left the hotel, we had a good feeling and said we would love to come back. But unfortunatley when we came home and did our credit card check, we saw that we had an additional $250 bill in addition to the room rate from this hotel. We called and were told we had smoked in the room. The only person that smelled of smoke was the man who repaired the TV. We don't smoke. The woman on the phone said she can't book it back, so she said we should go to our creditcard company and raise the issue there. Thanks Best Western for the paper work.

    « Ok for business »

    Rooms have been updated. Located in a business park, limited walking options. 5 min or less drive to restaurants. 10 min to shore and downtown. Decent pool. Rooms clean. Ample parking around hotel. Breakfast was ok. Internet was also good.

    « Great Sister Trip »

    We had a sister trip to SSI and I can't BELIEVE that this is a Best Western. It looks so BEAUTIFUL! The pool is nice to relax at as well. The hotel is close to the center of the island so lots of shops and fun restaurants less than a mile away. We will be back!

    « Dropped the ball »

    After receiving confirmation to stay for our 54th anniversary and making a 9 hour drive to get there I was told "sorry we had a plumbing problem there are no rooms available" the next day I drove back to see if the problem had been fixed only to find that they were fully booked. The next day I received an email stating they had overbooked and I would receive a refund. What was the truth? I do not know!

    « Not so good the 2nd time.. »

    Stayed here from Sun-Tues and then again Fri-Mon in mid April 2018. The first stay was decent. The breakfast during the week was stocked, the food attendant was very attentive and made sure everything was taken care of and the pool area was kept up nice. When we came back to stay Fri-Mon the stay was not as good. There were no pool towels in the pool area from Friday evening thru Sunday. I had to go tell the front desk. Sunday there were three hotel employees in the pool area (with four kids present) swearing and talking about ?beating a co-workers a$$?. The breakfast attendant didn't keep up with her job. She was more interested in talking with other employees. Coffee was out, juice was out, yogurt was out, eggs and sausage wasn't refilled until she decided she wanted to stop talking. The hot tub was occupied by patrons who were smoking in the hot tub in front of staff who didn't stop it. This all in front of kids in the pool area. We won't be back to this hotel. Much nicer and better staffed hotels on the island we've stayed at before.

    « FRONT DESK »

    The front desk was the best thing in the motel. The girl that works the morning time was great. She should get a raise. And the guy at night was great too. Think there names was Eve and Kalif. I hope I'm right because they where the best. The hotel was good too. Housekeeping needs a little more work, But wasn't to bad. I will be back and I will tell all my friends about this little place.

    « What a great hotel! »

    Not the brand we normally choose, but it was fantastic! Great service. Nice breakfast. Wonderful people. The pool area and outdoors we just beautiful. Lots of families were stopping there on spring break and it was quiet and nice!

    « Great people, pool, hot tub »

    We stayed for 3 nights. The double queen room is very small, but clean. Hotel decor is contemporary, and the pool and hot tub are amazing. The breakfast was good. Kids enjoyed making waffles. The best part is the staff. Everyone is wonderful, kind, helpful. We will return, but get a suite next time. The regular room was way too crowded.

    « Quick weekend getaway. »

    This property is conveniently location on St Simmons Island. We had a king suite. The pool area is beautiful. Breakfast was very good, eggs, sausage, waffles, vogurt, etc. The mattresses are very comfortable. This property is very beautiful. The safe and iron in our room were not working. There was a bag over the smoke dector. The hot water was barely luke warm.

    « Pleasant surprise »

    We have rarely stayed at hotels with rooms with outside entrances, but this was a really nice, quiet facility. Attractive grounds, colorful decor, bigger-than-average pool. Rooms were just big enough, but not confining. Very comfortable beds. First time I've encountered shower shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers. Decent hot breakfast. Some housekeeping issues (no Kleenex one day, no soap the next) that were quickly resolved. Staff was polite and helpful. We enjoyed our stay.

    « great trip »

    I stayed for 5 nights and it was everything a hotel should be. Clean, quiet, good beds, internet in room, delicious breakfast and great customer service. The location was convenient for exploring the barrier islands. The conference room was well appointed and adequate for meals and presentations.

    « Eva at the front desk »

    eva at the front desk was great and was very pleasing to talk to. She helped us every time we needed it. Its a great place to stay. You couldn't ask for a better place, The pool was very lovely. The rooms was very nice and clean, It was a very easy check and out with Eva. She is a great person to have at the motel. I think she was there last year when we was down for vac.

    « Comfortable and Clean! »

    We only stayed for one night but when we head back to Saint Simons we will definitely stay here again. Room seemed larger than most hotel rooms, exceptionally clean and the bed and pillows comfortable. Beautiful decor and plenty of bath supplies. The lady that checked us in on March 12 and out the next day was very cordial and well informed on the area. She made a great recommendation for lunch at Southern Soul. 5 stars to her as well ! There were a few folks who decided to get a party going out by the pool around 1:30 a.m. and it got a little loud. It kept me awake for about two hours - surprised nothing was done about it. I am sure I wasn't the only one who was disturbed. I will give this location a "quiet" rating overall though. I hope this was an isolated incident.

    « Very nice stay »

    Stayed 3 nights and had zero complaints. Check in a breeze, room was clean. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. And the breakfast girl was super sweet every morning. Breakfast had good options. Make your own waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, toast, yogurt and coffee always available in the front desk area. Pool area was plenty of room, lots of chairs and tables. Was too cold for a swim this time though but hot tub was popular. Location was a quick ride to beach, pier area, and local shops. Would recommend for sure!

    « Great Location, tons of potential »

    Great location, was central for a lot of attractions in St. Simons. The hotel recently had a face lift. Nice pool and hot tub. They were having hiring issues. Housekeeping was an issue. Didn't have our room cleaned for the 3 1/2 days there. The counter staff were AMAZING. They were working long hours, no relief and still were friendly and helpful. If they can fill the rest of the staff like the counter staff they will be dominant.

    « Mrs. Tommie Ann Coleman »

    We arrived on 2/15/18 stayed for 5 nights. Couldn't find our reservations from & had to wait for a good while to find them.The office smelled bad like garbage the whole stay there. Couldn't get shampoo & conditioner out of dispenser in shower. Desk clerk came & unlocked dispenser that night.Next day after maids cleaned we had no towels & they put dispenser back together. Again no conditioner. Next day when we got back to room after 3:30 room wasn't cleaned & we had no toilet paper or tissue. Went to office to get some & they said they had none. My husband had to get napkins off coffee bar for toilet paper. Last night we were there the fire alarm went off. Lady in another room got burnt from water being to hot. Had steamed & smoked up room & fire Dept was there.My husband had warned me that the hot water was set very hot. Very high rates & the staff definitely needs some supervision. For the rates we expected better service. Very dissatisfied.

    « Secluded, quiet in excellent location. »

    Front desk personnel and General Manager very personable and accommodating. Beautiful hotel set in a serene quiet location. Rooms with balconies overlooking beautiful pool and Jacuzzi underneath a sheltered gazebo. Breakfast was awesome, well stocked, with a variety of choices to include beverages. Hot coffee and fresh cookies always available in lobby as well. Housekeeping was always attentive to our needs and all were exceptionally friendly and hospitable. Shawn in maintenance was so personable and helpful. Rooms were comfortable, quiet and well stocked. Off site work out facility was first class and within walking distance. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. Very impressed with the professionalism and attitude of each staff member. Highly recommended. Thank you Kristi(breakfast), Khalif, Stacey, Eva, (Front desk personnel), Jeremy( General Manager), Anthony, Quaneisha, Stacey, Clarissa (housekeeping), Shawn (maintenance). Can't wait to return. Thank you. You guys are the best. Rock and Kathy Martin... Room 208 and 106....

    « Stayed at this hotel in the middle of a massive ice storm (yes, ice storm on SSI) and I live on St. Simons. »

    We had a huge ice storm with extremely low temps for several days and the electrical power went out on most of the island. My wife requires oxygen 24/7 and while we had a a new generator, I did not want to take the risk so I called hotels on the island (the causeway to the mainland was closed) and found the Best Western. I drove to the property, talked to the booking desk and found they had a room and power. My wife and I stayed in a warm room which was bright, clean and the most polite and helpful people you could imagine. The breakfast was complete and great. This is an extremely clean and well operated hotel and the people are great and the prices very reasonable

    « Very fine staff! »

    I had a mix up on when I wanted to check out and the staff was extremely gracious dealing with my mistake. I'd definitely stay again as it's location is great and the room was comfortable and the price was reasonable.


    If you're traveling along the I-95 corridor, and looking for a place to stop over, I want to recommend the Best Western Plus on Saint Simons Island. This quiet hotel is a great value. It is quiet and the rooms are luxurious. Enjoy a good nights rest!!!

    « Love this place!!! »

    This is by far my favorite hotel. The whole staff is great and will go out of their way to help you. The suites are great. The pool area is wonderful. Breakfast is decent. can not say enough about this hotel.

    « Great hotel with great value »

    We were three couples staying two nights at Best Western Plus on St. Simon Island for New Year's. The lobby and rooms were very clean and well kept. Since the weather was bad we spent time in the breakfast area during the evening (playing cards) and the staff couldn't have been nicer! Both Eva and Anne were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and attendant each morning was always smiling.. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Nice overnight »

    Super helpful staff. Well appointed and updated. They upgraded us to a suite in order to accommodate a pack and play. The room hadn't been cleaned thoroughly, but I suspect the hotel was short staffed due the holiday.

    « Great place to stay »

    Stayed here one night on way to Hilton Head and was very happy. Room was clean with plenty of towels and comfortable beds. Reasonable too. The breakfast was only decent. It was not as good as I've had at other Best Westerns. I would recommend this for the location and cost. Will come back too.

    « Leisure trip with friends »

    The hotel was very nice. It had been renovated and the decor was done in a nautical style. Very nice. The rooms were immaculate, bathroom sparkled. Bed was very comfortable and room was a comfortable size. Our room faced the pool, if the weather was nicer we would have enjoyed it more. We purchased a groupon for this trip but I would definitely revisit this hotel.

    « Great Experience »

    This hotel was one of the nicest, best, cleanest places I have stayed. The room was so comfortable and the staff was so helpful. They suggested places to visit and places to eat. They also let me check in early at no charge. I will go back again in the near future. Probably will never use another hotel, it was that nice.

    « Off season off the interstate stay »

    Hotel and staff were great, It was off season and enjoyed area with no crowds. Look forward to staying in season when weather is a bit more cooperative. Area has a lotto do, beaches golf shopping and dining.

    « one nighter »

    We were heading to St. Petersburg and needed to stop for an overnight. Charming area close to stores and restaurants. Room was very spacious and clean. Also very quiet ! Breakfast could have been better : only somewhat scrambled eggs and slim sausage hash browns or sausage gravy with biscuits. We would stay again if in the area.

    « Very clean place to stay. »

    This was a very clean and comfortable hotel. We were stopping through to Florida and it was a little out of the way but the location was nice if we were going to stay longer. Breakfast staff was super nice and the breakfast was good.

    « A lovely island A lovely get away »

    St. Simons island is cozy and lovely! The beaches are beautiful!! A variety of stores to shop and the restaurants are amazing!!! We loved the crab cakes at Barbara Jeans, the blackened shrimp at the Half Shall and delicious drinks and appetizers st the Mallet Bay!! Also, the light house and the pier are a must to see too!! We stayed at the Best Western Plus! The staff was friendly and helpful!! Our room was clean and nicely decorated. The grounds and pool area were very pretty too. Alsi, this is the nicest Best Western Plus we have ever stayed!!

    « WOW- Amazing Place to Stay and The Best Staff! »

    This gorgeous place is amazing! Loved the new rooms and all the comforts, Great breakfast, pleasantly surprised at all the items that were offered for breakfast. Very nice areas to sit and relax, use computer and printer(which I needed at last minute!) I cannot thank the staff enough, Jeremy, Caleb and great housekeeping staff! I will only stay here when I am at the islands again

    « EVA »

    Was there for a wedding, 4 day stay. Left my phone at home. Rental car gave me navigation . set it. Once I arrived at the hotel I could never figure out how to set it. Eva at the front desk was my lifesaver!!! She set it not once but daily for me so I could attend the wedding functions. She also inquired upon my return did I enjoy myself or have any problems getting to the various locations. I love this hotel!

    « Great Best Western Hotel! »

    This was our first time to St Simons Island AND first time to stay at this hotel. Beautiful hotel. Great clean rooms. Great staff. Great location. Wish the weather was warmer! Great place to visit! We can't wait to come back!

    « wonderful stay, our new place to stay at s.s.i. »

    My family and I enjoy saint simons island. During this last year, our family has grown by 2 so we are now a family of 6. It is not always easy finding a hotel room that is big enough for a family with 4 children when we travel. Most hotel chains only allow 4 in a room and you have to get extra rooms. Thankfully, we have found the Best western plus here and it is GREAT for us :) :) :) We were able to get a suite that had 2 queen beds, a sleeper sofa, and they even provided a "pack and play" crib for our baby. We had a very enjoyable weekend here and were very appreciative of the amenities and the friendly staff (especially the ladies running the breakfast area and the lady who checked us in and was at the front desk most of the weekend (i know i went to her several times for extra towels frequently and she was always very nice and understanding). This was a quiet hotel and the swimming pool was very nice. we look forward to using the pool on follow up visits, and we plan on coming here frequently now that we have found a place that has bigger rooms for larger families. My 4 children loved staying here and are already asking when are we going back to the beach. The prices are also very reasonable for a beach area / tourist area. This is NOT a brand new hotel and it has some wear but it is still a great hotel and we will definitely stay here again !!!

    « Great stay! »

    My wife and I stayed for three nights. The weather was not very good and we thought about leaving early. It was so nice here, we stayed the three days even though the weater was not very nice. Stacy at the front desk made the check in very pleasurable even though our room wasn't ready just yet. The room was spacious and very clean (hats off to the cleaning staff). The staff are friendly and polite. The breakfast was as good as it gets at a BW (Bubbles who makes the breakfast was a very nice and a lot of fun). The hotel is in very good shape and very clean. Beautiful pool and hot tub. Will definitely stay here again! EC

    « Great hotel. »

    Beautiful hotel on a great island to visit. Clean rooms, nice breakfast area and beautiful pool area. It is in a convent spot to visit all of. St. Simons, Brunswick AnD the rest of the golden isles of GA.

    « Pretty place to stay »

    We paid for a king but they didn't have enough housekeepers to clean us a room (according to the deskman) so we settled for a queen room. They also said the pool was heated which it wasn't. However the room was comfortable, clean, quiet for the most part (workers were renovating the room next to us!) Breakfast was just ok, rather bland. I think they need better management. We spent a lot of money there. The staff was nice!

    « Quiet beautiful location with typical Southern foliage »

    We returned to this hotel and - again - enjoyed the quality of its location and service. A beautiful pool area, free easy parking, agreeable breakfast with large choices. Lots of TV channels. Many without commercials which for us Europeans are too frequent.

  • 4
    « Great location »

    This hotel was a good choice for our family because we wanted to be not too far from the mall and other shops in brunswick, GA, but also close to the beach. We had some issues with the phone in one room not working, which was never addressed during our 4 day stay. Nonetheless, the breakfast was good and the rooms were very nice, clean, and spacious. If an on site fitness center or laundry room aren't preferred, it's a great choice!

    « The Best - Best Western »

    I went to St Simons for business. Most folks stayed at the King and Prince Resort. That location is outstand bc of the shoreline and "its a resort". I booked the Best Western based on the hotel webpage. It doesn't do the place justice. You have to stay there to believe it. You could read a book in the breakfast area and be just fine. The room was well apportioned and the staff was willing to go over and above.

    « Best Room For the Money »

    Remodeled rooms featured amenities that we have not experienced in many much more expensive hotels. Location was convenient and pool area looked amazing. While we did not eat breakfast the offerings were plentiful.

    « 4 stars!! »

    This hotel has been remodeled and is tastefully done. It was very clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. It is located close to restaurants and golf. Will definitely stay here again

    « Great clean option, reasonable location »

    Great clean option, reasonable location. Would definitely stay here again. Its not very close to the main attractions and beaches, which is a good thing if you're looking for a quieter area. Modern facilities and redone.

    « Great St. Simon's escape »

    The hotel location was convenient and the facility was updated. Two-room suite with sitting area including sofa, desk, tv, coffee pot, etc., separate bedroom and bath. Very spacious. Attended conference and meeting facilities were in separate but connected building. Outstanding accommodation. In addition, I saw a bald eagle perched on a power pole near the marsh as I crossed the bridge to the island. Great weekend all around!

    « Working on the island »

    Nice hotel and good location. We have been there several times for work. This was the first time at this hotel. It was clean and had a friendly staff. Unfortunately we don't get much time to site see but the hotel is in a great location.

    « love it »

    Nice suite..separate bedroom.2 tvs,2 a/c. Comfortable beds.Pillows not to comfortable.Room had little musty smell.. But that was right after hurricane,so they had there share of rain.Really nice staff..Breakfast ok.Wish they had oatmeal pre made..Pool outside.2 floors. Outside doors..motel style.Very clean..

    « St. Simons Island Best Western »

    This hotel met all expectations, even the free breakfast! it is a bit of a drive to the downtown and the pier but if you get downtown early you get a great parking place. The Best Western is perfect for any group. It was quiet and easy to get a good nights sleep.

    « Housekeeping Issues »

    Beautiful hotel and facilities, however, housekeeping needs quality control improvements. Food left in frozen up refrigerator. White bedspread soiled. Front desk promptly replaced the bedspread upon request. We WOULD stay in this hotel again.

    « Pleasant surroundings »

    Clean, comfortable and close to stores and beach area. Pool area at back of hotel. Breakfast was varied with eggs, sausage, yogurt, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and toast as well as coffee and juices. nd delicious.

    « Convenient Location at a Good Price »

    It was a good price and great location convenient to the wedding and reception venues we were attending. Centrally located on the island. Staff was awesome with getting us in our room early and quickly.

    « vacation with Road Scholar tour group »

    though a little cramped, the decor was lovely for a tropical locale.. Nice clean bathroom. All necessary toiletries. Breakfast choices were boring... Sausage and scrambled eggs EVERY Day for 5 days.. :(:(:( Not enough USA Today newspapers to go around. Overall the place was very nice and well maintained.

    « Best place for your dollar or euro »

    I have stayed at several Best Westerns over the years, but this one was clean, well decorated and the staff was courteous and helpful. Since I apparently need more characters to post this, it was great, great, and great.

    « Great Place to Rest and Recover »

    Was amazing, loved it. We went down to run a half marathon and the beds were BEYOND amazing. The view of the redone pool was fabulous and relaxing. The front staff was so kind and remembered us when checked out and asked how the race was-such a nice touch. We were unable to eat breakfast due to our early start (no fault of the hotel) but enjoyed it Sunday before we left and the coffee was GREAT. Thank you for such a great place to come "home" to after our half marathon! Rooms were clean and super cute!!!

    « Would definitely stay here again »

    Nice hotel with updated rooms and lobby. We stayed in a very roomy suite that was a very reasonable price. Lots of breakfast options... a few hot items. The pool and hot tub are nice - they even offer pool towels. However they do need to clean the leaves out of the pool.

    « Beautiful get away »

    Small hotel packed with all the amenities of home with an amazing and beautiful part of the world. The swimming pool is awesome, I spent as much time there as possible. People here are courteous and great! Cant ask for anything more...

    « Remodeled - Like New! »

    We had stayed at this hotel several times several years ago. It has now been remodeled and is better than ever! The location is convenient to the beach and restaurants. The breakfast is good, and the pool area is beautiful.

    « Awesome vacation spot! »

    This is a resort motel. Everything was very clean & had a wonderful beach decor. St. Simon's Island is an awesome place to visit & it is our getaway place now. We plan to always at this motel in the future.

    « Great stay! »

    Staff was terrific, breakfast was great, room had been tastefully updated. The hotel is older but our room and the lobby were updated with lovely, seaside decor. The gentleman at the front desk was so helpful and let us enjoy the complimentary breakfast even after it had ended. The location was pretty and seemed safe. Bed was comfortable. Overall it was definitely worth the money.

    « comfortable stay »

    The staff was pleasant, helpful and made every effort to make your stay a comfortable one. Rooms are small but good for 2 people. Bed comfortable; bathroom modernized. dining decor is inviting nautical theme; the breakfast selection was wonderful. From eggs, sausage, cereal, yogurt, pastries, to fresh waffles. Something for everyone. Walking distance to grocery store and food. Not the Ritz but value for our stay and purpose was just right. Minor issue was peeling of ceiling in our room and unkept business lot behind hotel.

    « Last Minute Travels »

    Usually last minute travels you can't expect much in the way of hotels, you get what you get and its usually a bit pricey. Best Western was reasonable, clean, staff was friendly and it included breakfast and the rate was really reasonable. We enjoyed our stay at Best Western Saint Simon Island.

    « good deal »

    quality of room was excellent service was very good would like to go back next year and revisit this area of Georgia again.We were very pleased with all we encountered. The area we had chosen was central to all we wanted to see and we did accomplish our goal.

    « Very clean and confortable »

    Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, professional and enjoyable to interact with. Breakfast had a nice variety and was fresh and plentiful. If I went back to St Simons Island, I would be pleased to stay here again.This was a joint business/couples trip.

    « Will stay again! »

    Hotel staff was wonderful! The hotel has recently been updated and everything was fresh and clean. The pool was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay here again. No complaints!

    « Great Little Hip Pocket Hotel! »

    I travel for a living and I had to come here for a night when my job extended. This place is not big, but, as they say, what's there is choice. The room was small but clean as a whistle and full of up-to-date amenities. The room was fresh, not dank, like you will often find on the coast. One of my pet peeves with hotels is lack of electrical outlets (always bring your own surge protector so you'll have enough). There are even charge ports here. The room reminded me of an Ikea apartment. The staff is great. They'll do everything they can for you. The bathroom was perfect, no tricky showers or other oddities that you find in other places. Stay here! You won't regret it.

    « Our trip to St. Simons Island »

    It was very nice. Service was great. Rooms was very up to date and clean. IT was close to the light house and many of the sights. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I will be going back. Great people that work there.

    « Love the atmosphere. »

    My family and I visited the hotel on our return trip from Florida. The rooms seem recently updated with a smart sence of style. The pool and hot tub are amazing and the staff goes out of its way to make you familiar with the area. It seemed like most of the rooms were booked showing many other travelers share my opinion.


    In general was ok , Did not find helpful information about the different tourist places. Very clean please and nice stay for the price. Location was not perfect but was just ok. Needed to drive to go to the village where is the main touristic place from the island.

    « Girls Trip »

    Overall my stay was great. There needs to be more attention paid to the exterior appearance of the hotel. Elevator and ice machines need to be more accessible from 2nd floor, I had to walk from my room on one end of the hotel to the other end to have acess to elevator and ice machine. There were spider webs all over the exterior that need to be cleaned off. The pool area (located underneath giant live oaks) needs to be maintained several times a day. Availability of pool towels need attention. We spent a lot of time at the pool and there was never any towels in the towel box. Landscape of pool area needs attention!

    « A beautiful location »

    Our Vacation was spent at St. Simons Island Georgia and at the Best Western Plus at St. Simons. This Hotel is beautifully located and is ran by some of the kindest and friendliest staff that we have ever encountered while on Vacation. The Management and Staff go out of their way to may your stay enjoyable...and we wanted for nothing while we were there!! An excellent Hotel!!

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    We actually stayed here four years ago when it didn't belong to Best Western. Back then I would've rated it a 2.75 due to the dirtiness and cosmetic issues. The property since being bought by BW is now Beach Chic with beautiful teal and coral colors. The staff (which was the only saving grace 4 years ago) is still as smiling, and welcoming, and friendly as they were last time. Pool area is beautiful with the live oak and moss and gazebo hot tub. While this hotel is located a little bit out of the main attraction areas like the pier/lighthouse areas, it doesn't detract from the stay on the island. The price point is reasonable and with the renovations and improvements, it is worth it. Also the breakfast area is bright, clean, with a good selection of proteins and carbs and can seat around 40. Would definitely stay again.

    « Best little secret on St. Simon's Island »

    Beautiful hotel, just updated. Rooms were clean, bright and nicely appointed. Breakfast room and lobby were also clean bright and beautifully decorated. Breakfast in the morning was pretty substantial and the staff were very helpful. Pool is large and has a nice large hot tub area. Location was excellent close to center of island. Would definitely stay here again on business or pleasure.

    This is a beautiful facility which was renovated last year. Reception was great and very helpful. The breakfast was as advertised. Room was nicely decorated but was not clean. Both my sister and I had allergy problems overnight. We did not realize the room was the problem until later in the week when we stayed at another motel and had no allergy problems. The carpet was dirty but we thought when the room was clean the next day; things would be better. However the maid service still not there at 4:30 PM. We had waited 30 minutes for them to get to our room and were tired and did not want to wait any longer. We got clean towels and did not get the room serviced. Later in the day we went thru the breakfast area to the lobby and the garbage from the morning had not been emptied. The room smelled bad. I do not know when maintenance is scheduled but there were several areas outside that needed some maintenance. We like the location of this motel but will not stay there again.

    « Much improved. A few nitpics.... »

    Much improved over years past. The decor is quite nice. The pool has been re-done, and if you're lucky enough to share it without low-class parents who let their children behave wildly and without proper supervision, it's great. It felt as if they were trying to skimp on housekeeping service. In general, the crews did a very good job but there were not enough to take care of the property in a timely manner. We were often waiting for our room to be cleaned until well after 4PM - very inconvenient when you'd like to be getting ready for dinner or have evening plans.

    « Family Trip »

    Nice hotel but not for $200 per night. Rooms too small to walk around at all. Staff only offered towels the next day. They did not empty trash etc. The pool is nice. The guests were friendly. Other hotels in the area are a better option for that price.

    « Excellent rooms and staff »

    Annie at the front desk is awesome. Rooms are very clean and stylish. Checking in and out was super easy. and the breakfast was excellent! Love the sausage and gravy and I never eat that ever. Fiance loved the waffles. Great all around experience.

    « Great Hotel - treated us well! »

    Nice cool rooms - awesome after 90 degree days! Very comfortable beds with lots of pillows. Appreciate the complimentary breakfast! They went out of their way to make our family reunion successful! Friendly staff - front desk & housekeeping. Would definitely stay again.

    « Excellent experience »

    Stayed at the Best Western in St. Simon. The room was great. The morning staff person who was in charge of the breakfast was delightful. Her attitude made my day. The Front Desk person gave us fun information that was extremely useful. The pool area was very clean. Great place to stay and a good location.

    « Such friendly service! »

    From the minute we arrived, we felt so welcome! When we checked in we mentioned being in town for a swim meet. As other swimmers arrived, they were all greeted warmly and wished good luck. When we found out breakfast wouldn't start until after we had to leave for the meet, the person at the front desk made sure that fruit, cereal, and yogurt would be available for us and that the coffee was fresh. The rooms aren't huge, but are very comfortable. Housekeeping was generous with towels since we had lots of long-haired swimmers, and we appreciated that! The pool is lovely. Will definitely stay here again.

    « Cute and comfortable hotel »

    This place was very cute and ideal for our overnight stay in St. Simons Islands. The room was spacious and grounds were well taken care off. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying for a few nights out on the islands.

    « Quiet Location and Nice Pool »

    This is a two-story small hotel on main street on St. Simons. It is rather secluded which makes it quiet. There is not much traffic passing through on this street. It is right next to the Holiday Inn Express. The views from this hotel are nothing to shout about. I would ask for a room on the first floor facing the pool. The pool is large for a most small hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated in modern motif. The room size is typical. The bathrooms are adequately sized. The beds are comfortable but I would bring my own pillow if you do not like soft pillows. The is a dresser of sorts to place your clothes. The value for our room was reasonable given we arrived in high season. The breakfast offered was ample . . coffees, breads, juices, eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, fruits, etc. The breakfast is served near the reception area. Cookies are provided in the reception area in the afternoon. The hotel is within a short driving distance to Redfern Village which has shops, restaurants, and local businesses. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating.

    « Absolutely Loved It!!!! »

    Cannot say enough good things about this hotel!!! We absolutely loved staying here and can't wait to go back. First of all, it is not on or near the beach so don't stay here if that's what you're looking for. However, if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing tropical paradise........please book a room or a suite at this hotel! The decor is modern and updated. The bed was so comfortable! You will love the spacious bathroom and all the storage provided. The pool area with the hot tub in the gazebo is fabulous!!! Breakfast was great with lots of choices and such a precious, sweet young lady in attendance!!! Front desk staff was friendly and helpful!! You will not be disappointed if you stay here!!

    « Great value »

    The room was very clean and attractively decorated. The pool area was nice with a gazebo and plenty of shady places with tables. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient to all activities on the island.

    « GREAT »

    Our stay was great. No problems loved the hotel. We stayed during the week and the hotel was very quit. We were able to relax and have quality time. This hotel had the best pool of all the ones we have stayed at in St. SImons.

    « Beautiful! Not your typical Best Western! »

    It is like a Plantation house! Our stay was amazing from the time we entered until the time we sadly left our vacation. The desk associate ( I don't remember her name) was very welcoming and accommodating. Loved the Yogurt machine and toppings as well as the breakfast attendant, Bubbles! She was so engaging with everyone. The pool area was fantastic and some great restaurants nearby. A short drive to the beach. We enjoyed the large suites, that are basically two rooms. We will certainly visit again!

    « Great Stay »

    This was a comfortable, clean hotel with a nice pool and a great breakfast. The Staff was friendly and parking was easy. It was reasonably priced and in a convenient location. We would stay here again

    « Family vacation »

    Great hotel for our whole family that includes my 2 year old. Spend a lot of time by the pool relaxing ! Love the size of the room and the decor is nice. It's in a nice quiet location but not far from all the entertainment.

    « Nice »

    Wow! What a nice surprise! The hotel was so nice. The room was large and comfortable. The decor was modern and vibrant. I was so impressed by the remodeling and redesign. I wish all hotel rooms used this plan. The bathroom was so large and spacious! I love the shelving in the bathroom for your clothes and personal items along with the ironing board and iron. With the dressing area in the bathroom, all luggage stays there which allows the room to stay tidy and uncluttered. Also the barn door is a great space saver. The breakfast area and business center is beautifully decorated with a lot of attention given to detail as well as function. Except for an unexplained, errant noise that must have come through the plumbing system, it was quiet and relaxing---- I was skeptical since this hotel had exterior rooms and we were pool side. Nice stay! Staff was awesome. We will definitely stay again.

    Took my son for an overnight on the Island last minute on a budget, but got more than expected. Great pool, clean rooms, friendly staff, and bfast on par with Hampton, Springhill Suites. Recommended!!

    The staff is warm and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. Breakfast had variety and was good. We'll stay here again. We were very pleasantly surprised that Best Western was such a pleasant experience.

    « Great stay!! »

    Very updated and nice. The breakfast was great and filling. Not just your typical "hotel breakfast". Fresh fruit. Eggs, bacon and biscuits. Juice is provided for breakfast and then the rest of the day tea and lemonade is served. Fresh baked cookies too!! The rooms are updated and very nice. The pool is fantastic!! Very large and even a hot tub. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will stay here again.

    « Great Family Getaway »

    Loved the pool! Breakfast was as expected, the room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach is not very far from the hotel at all and there are many restaurants in the area. We will be visiting again soon!

    « Excellent Hotel with a few glitches »

    We showed up 30 minutes after Check-In time to be sure our rooms would be ready and we could unload our cars. One room was told to be ready and the other hadn't been done yet but the housekeeping staff was standing around in the lobby. When we went to the rooms, neither were ready and the one they said was ready hadn't been touched. Once we finally got our rooms, everything was pretty good. The Jacuzzi was broken the first night but they fixed it the next day. A group of teenagers from an Atlanta-area church stayed one night during our three-night stay and were rowdy at the pool and took over the breakfast area the next morning. They were very rude but the staff handled them pretty well. As far as staying here again, we will always stay here. The hotel is clean, kept well, and is beautiful. I've already recommended this hotel to others and will continue to.

    « Ticks, dirty rooms, broken pool lift »

    For starters, get rid of the ticks. In our 7 night stay, we found 6 ticks in our room. Second, train your staff on how to operate the handicap pool lift and also get a handicap pool lift that works. I am wheelchair bound and one of the big reasons we booked this hotel was for its pool accessibility. As we prepared to go to the pool, we asked the attendant for the use of the lift. The attendant did not know anything about it. We were handed the battery and told we could operate it ourselves as he didn't know anything about it. After some trial and error, my husband was able to operate the lift. This was all capped by the fact that the lift stopped working and would not come out of the pool. I was in the pool without the ability to get out. Luckily, my husband and another guest were able to help me out of the pool. When we told the desk what happened, they offered no apology and did not seem concerned. This, to me, seems like a serious issue that the hotel needs to remedy. The third and final issue was out of the 8 days we were there, our room was serviced 4 times. Even when the room was serviced, it was extremely inconsistent. Several days we were left without wash cloths or various other items. It was kind of a joke between us to see what item would be left out that particular day

    « Nice hotel »

    This hotel was very nice & quite. It was tucked away in a cul de sac & no traffic. I loved the quite effect of no traffic. The room was very nice & comfortable, we slept very well. We would recommend it.

    « Wedding for our nephew... »

    Day staff didn't know what time the trolley was picking us up. My nephew didn't tell the safd when, were.he just gave a time.. I don't believe it was a serious problem... evening staff was kind and helpful... We would stay there again.. Beautiful clean updated and very comfortable!!!

    « Nicest Best Western I have ever seen. »

    Newly remodeled, elegantly furnished and decorated, quiet location, wonderful pool and spa, nice breakfast. Very pleasant stay! St. Simons is a charming island with very picturesque neighborhoods and lots of choices for dining in the village center.

    « Hope maintenance has improved. »

    We stayed here last August after a mild hurricane has just come through. Room, breakfast and view were all extremely nice. The only problem I had with this hotel is the cleaning of pool area after the storm. It was closed due to the moss from the trees. I actually drank my morning coffee and watched the staff literally do nothing for hours to clean up the situation. The sad part was it would have took about two hours to clean up but the pool area and it ended up being closed all day. I watched one man finally give up and set out a table for his family. Also, there were limbs were through out the parking lot that we had to dodge just to park. Again it would have only took about an hour to clean up. So unless something has changed do not stay here during a storm or you can hang up enjoying the pool.

    « Stacey Made the Visit! »

    I wanted to get away to St. Simon's Island for a quick birthday/business retreat. I did not end up staying at Best Western, but the front desk attendant, Stacey, did not turn me away with a casual "Have a nice night" reply. She assisted me in finding a place to stay that was within my budget and nearby. She is truly a gem! She went above and beyond by calling the other place, giving them my name, printing directions, and welcoming me to the island. Stacey is the epitome of customer service and southern hospitality. For those whom are fortunate to stay at Best Western Plus, she alone is worth the visit!

    Loved the pool and breakfast was really tasty. Very kind front desk staff and breakfast staff - thank you for a great stay! I stayed for business for three weeks and the staff made sure to accommodate any issues.

    « A very nice hotel »

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Saint Simons Island. The room was nice. Everything worked. Everything was clean. The staff were friendly at every encounter. I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Great experience! »

    I stayed at this hotel for several weeks and the staff made the stay extremely pleasant. The staff was always friendly and helpful - going above and beyond what was expected. A full breakfast was served daily by our chef, always with a smile and energetic good morning. The rooms were in great condition, nicely furnished, and always clean. The outdoor pool was an unexpected benefit, especially during the warm springs days. And, the photos posted on the website are accurate!

    « Second Time We've Stayed : Better Each Time »

    During our first visit we did not take advantage of the ample breakfast available, but this time was amazed at the wide selection, the well maintained dining area, and the overall helpfulness of the kitchen staff.

    « Totally New Renovated Hotel »

    We were very surprised to find out that this hotel was not totally built new from the ground up, but a renovation of an old hotel. The renovations were so good we thought this was a newly built Best Western. Service was great at the desk and in the breakfast area. Hot breakfast was very good, with many hot choices. Very convenient to many places we wanted to see. Definitely recommend; we stayed 2 nights and were very pleased.

    « Exceeded expectations »

    I haven't stayed in a Best Western in a long time, but I think of it more as a motel and a budget chain. This is a Best Western Plus, and I'm not sure what the Plus stands for but the decor in the hotel was modern and chic, and the pool area very pretty with a giant live oak draped with Spanish moss and a hot tub in a gazebo. Breakfast was typical of a chain restaurant but satisfying, and the way the breakfast area was decorated (again, quite stylish) made the experience better. The room was on the small side, which was fine. The bathroom was very clean and looked recently renovated. Often in cheaper hotels, the bathroom suffers from grime or missing grout but this one was nice and new. My only complaint is that the pillows were quite lofty and we could hear other guests passing by outside, which meant I didn't sleep as well as I had in other recent hotel stays.

    « weekend get away »

    My husband and I had go get away for a weekend to visit one of our friends, who lives in Brunswick so I found the Best Western and booked it. We arrived early and the room was not ready so we went down to the pier. We got back to the hotel about 3:30 and the room was ready. The room was nice and we had a view of the pool, which was nice.

    « "Pretty" outside, lacking inside »

    Numerous problems, doors wouldnt shut or stay closed, therefore loosing privacy. Housekeeping walking in on me while I was in my underwear. Returning at day's end, locked out of room...and housekeeping didn't return to clean room. Front desk required us to make several trips to them in order to rectify their staff problems. Room had such potential, if only human errors had not followed along.

    « Great Place to Stay! »

    I was very pleasantly surprised by this motel -- great price; great location; clean, quiet and comfortable rooms; and a wonderful outdoor pool/spa. The breakfast was also quite good and the staff were very friendly. The perfect place for our visit to St. Simons Island!

    « Not Your Old Best Western »

    Pleasantly surprised to stay at this Best Western. The rooms were quite nice and the bathrooms intelligently laid out (sliding door versus a swing door that takes up too much room in the room). Nice beds (although softer pillows would help), and quiet HVAC system helped get to sleep. Poor and patio area very nice for relaxing and wine although weather did not cooperate as far as temperature. The staff here were universally pleasant and helpful. The happy woman running the breakfast bar deserves a raise for being just wonderfully cheerful each morning, making everyone feel great to start the day. A good value on an expensive island.

    « Great hotel with a wonderful staff »

    Everything was wonderful. Breakfast was amazing. Much better than expected. The front desk staff bent over backwards to accommodate us. The hotel rooms are beautifully decorated and the grounds are kept clean.

    « Beautiful hotel except for that day of stay »

    This was a beautiful hotel,rooms were very nice and comfortable. Unfortunately the room was never made up for our next day stay. The hotel seemed to have a staffing problem that day with housekeeping. Would stay there again if the problem dosen't happen again. Breakfast was the best of our other Best Western stays.

    « A beautiful refurbishment, but with many many problems »

    We stayed at this hotel for a few days over Spring Break. On the surface it looks great - a BW that has been recently refurbished, very nicely I might add, with a large swimming pool and patio area that really attracted us, as we have three children who love to swim! The trouble is, when a hotel upgrades itself like this, it REALLY needs to upgrade the staff too. Sadly this one did not, and it showed in several ways which I will come to. Firstly, we booked a two queen bed room, and it was teeny tiny, VERY claustrophobic. They had availability for a 2 room suite for the last 2 of our 4 day trip, and we moved into that gratefully. Basically, think of the old Best Western motel rooms, with the massive air conditioner under the window - despite the refurb, this is what you get, and with a 2 room suite you get two old rooms knocked into one suite, in fact the front door of the second room is still there behind a curtain :) Still, I would say unequivocally that unless you are 2 people who are very comfortable being crushed together at all times, book a suite!! We did not have enough towels, and had trouble getting more. After the first night, we had to ask twice if housekeeping were coming to our room because we had seen them about but they never cleaned our room or replaced towels. We were promised TWICE that yes they were.... eventually we were told that they were short staffed, and that no, nobody would be servicing our room. We had to fetch our own towels. The pool area, though pretty, was dirty. It needed sweeping badly, the pool should be skimmed every single day, and the walk up to the jacuzzi was also like this. In addition, the trash cans on the patio were overflowing, with trash around the floor. In a place like South Georgia, that's just going to attract bugs and nasties in my opinion! I told the front desk staff, and eventually, somebody did pick up the trash, though nothing else was attended to. The Pool Towel stand was always empty - in fact at one point I felt so sorry for the front desk lady who was doing a great job of fielding the complaints she had written all over post-it notes on her desk, that I offered to go put some towels out for her, which I did. When we moved into the suite, two lamps had missing light bulbs. One of them was on the floor by the window, smashed. I phoned front desk, I asked the receptionist directly, and eventually, on our last night, I collared an elusive housekeeper and asked again to have some light in our bedroom. Maintenance did come and replace the bulbs, but left the broken one where it was. In the suite which sleeps 5, we were given 3 bath towels and 1 hand towel. When my husband queried this with a housekeeper he was told they were all in the laundry, but we would get some towels shortly. Seriously... every towel in the hotel was in the laundry?!??? We did not get towels. I had to walk down again to front desk, and pick up some towels, and carry them back to the room. The complimentary breakfast was the usual, nothing special about it but nothing bad either. Kristie the hostess was cheerful and very friendly. The breakfast room had a permanent smell of sulfurous eggs - i'm not sure if it was food or the local swamps :) I would like to mention Anne who worked the front desk - she was the only member of staff who tried very hard to fix the problems we had, and seemed to care about what she was doing. Basically, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again until I knew they had employed more cleaning staff, bought more towels, employed someone to maintain the grounds and the basic room maintenance (like light bulbs!) YOu are not running a basic motel there anymore Best Western - if you want to call the hotel a Best Western PLUS, you really need to add staff who are better trained and more plentiful!

    « 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.

    « Completely Updated »

    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.

    « Bed bugs »

    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!

    « We Will Be Back »

    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 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 »

    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!!


    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.

    « Thumbs up »

    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.

    « Family visit »

    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.

    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.
