“Ask for renovated room”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

The location can't be beat and the staff is very nice. The lobby and hallways are nicely decorated and the carpets are in good shape. However, room 109 is in terrible shape...torn, nasty carpet, cracked, dirty tile and grout, soiled bedcoverings and absolutely NO lighting. There is no way to read in the room. When we checked out and I pointed out these problems, I was told the room was to be redone in November. Wish I had asked for another room. We are planning to return next year and hopefully we will get one of the "new" rooms! This little Inn has so much going for it and just needs to
step up the accommodations a notch to become a great place to stay!

Room Tip: Request a recetnly renovated room!

Good things first: Great location, comfortable beds...but room smelled, bathroom was tiny, window didn't open. We stayed 3 days for a wedding--there was no closet or rack to hang clothes. When I pointed this out to the desk clerk, she told me all the rooms are different and not all guests wanted to hang clothes. We had 3 hangers on a wall hook! We didn't think it was necessary to ask for one of the rooms with an actual closet. The very large Georgia cockroach running across the room only added to our dissatifaction with this inn.

Room Tip: Ask for room with closet or rack to hang clothes

We booked a two night weekend getaway, well arrived tired, was kept up by noisy parties in room. Went down to Lobby to complain, the owner, refunded our night hopefully tonight is better..

Room Tip: Ask if their is any special groups, like wedding parties.

My family and I came to St. Simons for a short get away. We booked the hotel not knowing much about it except the price was great and it was close to the pier. When we got there we all fell in love with it and learned that each room is owned by individual persons. So none of the rooms are alike. If someone got a bad room it's not on the hotel but rather the people that own it. But if there are complaints the hotel gladly accepts suggestions. The general manager gave us a quick tour of just a few rooms that weren't occupied and they were all beautiful, each one very unique. The location is great. It is not directly on the beach but it right across the road from the historic light house. You can't get this view anywhere else. it is in walking distance from the pier and all the wonderful restaurants. You can walk to the beach, but we like going to East Beach which is only a couple minuets away. The Inn doesn't have many things for children to do but it is right across from the park and public pool and the pool at the Inn is very nice. I would love to stay there again and would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: There are renovations in progress, so when booking ask about the last time the room was renovated.

My husband & I took a last minute trip for Labor Day weekend... almost impossible I know. When I called the Inn, they had just had a cancellation for suite #203 so we jumped on it! Check in was a breeze & the suite was just as it was pictured on thier website. I had stayed here about 6 years ago before the remodel. I was so glad to see the updates! It is in a great location, a 3 minute walk to the Village & Pier and a 5 minute drive to the beaches public access. We will definately be staying at St. Simons Inn again & again!!

The hotel reminds me of great B and B's in the real old fashion way..each room is decorated differently..across the street from the Lighthouse and village spots..music scene, pier and happenings. Staff is awesome! Island time in the good sense. This island is not the T'shirt, beachy type.. people live here and thrive! Artists, golfers, and locals love tourists as we blend in with the scenery. Love those Spainsh moss trees and make for the myth of mustic musings! Want good food.. two blocks to Barbara Jean's..best crab cakes in the southeast and Mullet Bay welcome you with flothy good beer and a sea food platter.. reasonable. Eugenia Price (noted author) lived here and buried near the old church towards Sea Island. Davis Love calls this his home.
You will not go wrong this the above Inn.

Room Tip: Look on-line to pick the best room and decor.
