I have a king room with oceanfront view booked for the 4th-9th of June, and after reading some recent reviews I'm wondering if my room is updated and clean as well as a ocean view. Also do you allow small pets?

Thank you for vacationing on Tybee Island and giving us the opportunity to host your visit. All rooms (ocean view and inland facing rooms) at this point have received the same upgrades with the exception of some bathroom vanities and tub surrounds. Vanities and tub surrounds were installed in rooms that had sustained damage prior to our purchasing the hotel...

This hotel seems to have potential, but right now it really uncoordinated. We arrived at night and we were deeply confused because the road sign says the name is Ocean Plaza. The registration is in a freestanding building. The numbers on the doors don't match numbers on the wall beside the doors. They are not flexible with check out times....

The hotel is under remodeling. Our room was clean. The construction is necessary so we just overlooked it. The staff was very nice. Great location near the beach, pier, restaurants and shopping. Good access to the beach.

This hotel has a great location. It's at the pier and one block from shops and food. They are renovating so it's a bit of a mess but you can't knock them for improving. The room was relatively clean. The bathroom was the only part that could have used an update. For the money I would stay here again with...

Hotel is being renovated so there was some noise, but not too bad. Rooms were comfortable. Internet service was not great, but I was told this is being addressed. A storm knocked the restaurant out of commission for a couple of days, but when I was able to eat there the food & drinks were good, the service pleasant.

I think it's a stretch calling this a Hotel. One of the elevators were down on a holiday weekend. The carpet in the elevator was dirty the entire weekend. Wi-fi would only work occassionaly. Oceanfront with a view of the parking lot.

Thank you for visiting Tybee Island, staying with us and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. The hotel's corridor carpets have just been completely re-carpeted. Just two days before our Memorial Day Weekend, we removed tile from our elevators and carpeted them. I think the beach and parking lots lead to a lot of wear and tear in the elevators. We...

Great Location. Parking lot away from ocean beach. Right near main drag for bars and Restaurants. Definitely stay on the ocean side of the hotel unless you want to look at a parking lot. Construction going on so very noisy. Rooms are damp even with air condition turned up. Must be an A/C thing. Beds and service very good. Location...

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. All our noisy remodeling is complete. I cannot apologize enough and at the same time thank you for your patience.

Took a quick Monday- Wednesday beach trip that was perfect! Hotel was clean, friendly and quiet! Beach is a quick walk and restaurants as well as shopping all within walking distance. The hotel restaurant had a great breakfast buffet and ate dinner there one night- excellent! Will certainly be returning!

So of course I read the reviews for the hotel but being in a hurry I failed to follow my own golden rule; that is to disregard reviewers with only 1 review. In the first 10 reviews, there are 7 single reviewers and this is always suspicious. Right from the start I will tell you that the hotel is over...
