Absolutely fabulous. Right in the the middle of all the action. Favorite part was being able to either walk or bike ride to the local eateries. Always enjoy my time on the island and the Inn was very accommodating. You have a beautiful view of the lighthouse, beaches to the front and side of you, and a great pier to... More

Dislikes: *Anyone can walk into the stairwell/hotel. No security, and no keycard required. I didn't feel safe walking stairwell alone at night. (although it doesn't appear to be a high-crime area at all.) *Stayed on the third floor (not by choice), but the elevator only goes to the second floor. *I requested a different room every day but was told...

We stayed here about a week ago now. The only thing nicer than this quaint little inn is the people who work there!!! We have stayed in hotels and inns in almost every state in the country, and I have never worked with a more cordial, friendly, and helpful staff!!! Great room, great location, great parking, great value, and great... More

This was my first trip to St. Simon, and I hope not my last. I stayed at the inn, based on Tripadvisor reviews. The location is great, mere steps from the pier, beach, and shops and restaurants. I arrived early and my room was ready! With the AC running. That was a nice touch. The check in/out people were very... More

What a great location this hotel is at. We chose this hotel for price and location and both met our expectations. Our room was on the 2nd floor over looking the pool with a patron to step out on. The room was clean and had a fridge and microwave which is great to have with children. We loved the room... More

My husband & I have stayed at the Inn by the Lighthouse several times over the last 12 years. The location is perfect, and every employee is very courteous. Our room was comfortable, clean & well furnished. It was quiet, but we were there on week nights.

We were impressed with the room and location. Beds were comfortable and rooms were cool! The location was perfect...right across the street from the lighthouse and the beach. The village with shops and restaurants was a block away. The bike paths around town were great and passed by many of the "must see" places. I did not give it 5... More

The location was perfect but our room was not clean. In fact I would not take my shoes off or use the shower. We were only there for one night so that was the best part. if we had been there longer, I would have asked for a refund.

There is nothing quaint about St. Simons Inn, Room 102. The room has a constant smell of mildew and mold and in dire need of cleaning. A coat of paint was slapped on the walls but nothing can hide the smell or hide how cheaply updates were done. The owner should spend time and money to hire a contractor who... More
