We had a delightful three night stay at the Ocean Lodge during the last week of September. The staff was just amazing from the time we checked into the Lodge until we departed. Everyone from the housekeepers, wait staff, front desk, and managers could not possibly have been nicer. Our room was not ready when we came to check in...

Let me start by saying that we had the least expensive suite at the hotel and it blew my wife away! We stayed at Ocean Lodge for a romantic weekend on the way to a college graduation, and could not have been happier. The room was spacious and impeccably styled. The service outstanding! Since we were from KC, we used...

This is a wonderful newish Hotel that just impresses! Truly a boutique hotel. We actually live on the island and always recommend the Ocean Lodge to our friends and relatives when they are visiting.

I guess I am just adding another 5 star review to the many before ours. We spent three nights at the Ocean Lodge and the only problem we ever had was that we hated to leave. Even during the day, we found ourselves loafing around in the spectacular suite rather than running around St. Simon's Island and vicinity. I've stayed...
