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...

Booked an "over sized suite", got a single room. Manager refused to accommodate. The drop ceiling and half empty bottle of "intimate" lotion they provided adds a certain elegance, too. Book elsewhere.

This was my first visit to St. Simons. My boyfriend surprised me with a birthday trip. He had wanted to stay at the King & Prince, but it was booked. I would say this was a pretty good alternative. It was very clean and the room smelled nice. The air conditioner worked great, and it was in a very convenient...

Spent two nights at the Ocean Inn recently. Location of the hotel is good...not sure I would refer to it a "boutique" but it was nice. Great view from our room of the lighthouse and water. Staff was helpful, parking spaces were very tight underneath building...continental breakfast was fairly standard stuff. For about the same money or maybe just a...

We've been visiting St. Simons Island for 14 years. Yet, this was our first stay at Ocean Inn and Suites. We enjoyed a last minute getaway and decided to try this hotel since our usual places were booked. Overall, the hotel is nice and we'd stay there again if we couldn't find other accommodations. The value for the price is...

We had a marvelous stay at Ocean Inn and Suites. We were treated like family. Our room was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast on the balcony was a great way to start the day.We enjoyed having a refrigerator so we could keep some things for sandwiches when we didn't want to eat out. There's a nice terrace by the lobby...

We were first time visitors to the island and the tourist information suggested that the Ocean Inn and Suites had last minute specials on, namely $99 per night. The front desk confirmed this. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the time that we spend there. The disappointing part was that we were charged $139. on check out. This...

My boyfriend is training at FLETC for a few months and we live on the West Coast. I can't go on the base so we needed to find a place to stay nearby. He suggested St. Simon's Island, so I went on a quest to find hotel. He gave me the name of a restaurant he frequented and told me...

I found this hotel on the same level of a budget hotel. Our room was not large and was stuffed with furniture. The towels were cheap and shredding. The bed linens were also cheap, unmatched. They did not cover the exposed mattress. The mattress cover only covered the top. I had to pin the bottom sheet to the mattress to...
