The Ocean Villas and Suites was perfect pick for our family. The room was very spacious with a King size bed and a queen bed. The staff was very gracious. We had one maintenance item and they repaired quickly. Recommendation to the hotel..time for new sheets for the beds. They were clean but worn.

This is a wonderful Hotel, located right across the street from the Lighthouse and beach.We had a Suite overlooking the Lighthouse and pool, with a little veranda. Free coffee and muffins in the morning. The shops and great restaurants were 100 yards away. And close to the Pier, great for sunsets.

Beautifully decorated rooms - not your standard cheap carpeted chain hotels. Real glasses/coffee cups. The place has a "European" feel with narrow wrought iron balconies. We initially booked our room through an on line hotel service. Upon check in The manager told us that the cheaper rooms are offered on line and offered to upgrade me to a room with...

Great location, within walking distance of everything. Presidential Suite tired but nice view of lighthouse and ocean. All was well until checkout, email total cost said one thing, they wanted to increase the cost. They finally agreed to honor the contact but tried to intimidate us by saying employee would have to pay the difference due to her mistake. Very...

I stayed here a week on business. The pros - the staff was very friendly and helpful. I left early every morning at around 5:30am and they put out the coffee and pastries early just for me. The room was pretty nice and it had hardwood floors which is pretty rare in hotels. The room itself seemed like it had...

Lovely old hotel. very clean. There just wasn't any outlets near the bed to charge your phone. The cleaning service didn't come till after 4:00pm on one of the days I was there. The last night the people across the hall were slamming doors at all hours. I should have called the front desk.

My fiancé and I recently stayed here. We were traveling from Virginia to Florida. Although the hotel presented with a beautiful view of the lighthouse, the hotel itself was in desperate need of upgrades. The room itself had a musty smell and the sheets were damp with moisture. The bed was very soft and uncomfortable. The water pressure in the...

The staff was nice, the location is great and the rooms are (barely), passable, but this hotel is long past needing an upgrade, even if the rate (off-season) was only $79 per night (plus the abundant taxes). I make several trips to SSI each year for business and it is an area without a truly outstanding hotel, especially one of...

My family and I visited St. Simons last year and Ocean Inn & Suites was the perfect hotel! St. Simons is our home away from home seeing as how we always try to visit at least once a year. This hotel offered a great rate for being so close to the lighthouse and pier village. It is in the perfect...
