Great location on the quieter north end of the really beautiful long sandy beach. Tybee Island is quaint with friendly people and fun activities. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions, and flexible with check-in and check-out times. We especially enjoyed our conversations with "Queen Carol", this year's Beach Bum Parade queen. The room was...

Hotel was right on the beach, clean and nice! Room was larger than expected! Very large comfortable bed, huge shower loved it! At the North side of beach the pier is at the south side that was the only draw back

Was led to believe that this was a high end hotel on the beach. The staff was friendly but this was more of a motel that was not kept up. Extremely expensive for what we got. The bed was made by throwing the top cover over an unmade bed. Carpets in the common area were filthy.

Great location. Easy parking. Rooms were nice and clean. Beds were very comfortable. Pool area small, but adequate for hotel. Staff were very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was simple but plenty of choices and filled us up until dinner.

The bed in the room was terrible, and the price per night was outrageous. The Beach Towels were not offered for the pool and beach area so we had to purchase the small ones from the front desk at ten dollars a piece.

Check in went well. Continental breakfast was okay--tons of carbs. Huge dead roach in the stairwell. Small roach got into my makeup bag. Yuck. What bothered me the most was the AC issue. The AC only runs if there is motion detected in the room. Weird, right? Once I realized this, I decided to turn the thermostat down. Negative--you couldn't...

Had a great time here..would have got 5 stars but found a $25 charge from the Hotel and tried to call to see what it was and gave up after being on hold for 10 minutes...ended up being almost $400 for one night including the extra mystery charge...I can't afford to stay here again!..HAHA

The hotel accommodation is very mediocre. Motel 6 standard. I would not recommend it to anybody. The only beachfront hotel in Tybee that's why it's still in business. The shower faucet was defective. Either the water is too hot or cold.

This hotel is amazing! My family has stayed here 3 times, the service is exceptional, the rooms are very clean, and it is by far the closest hotel to the beach front. The free breakfast is very good and the staff is very respectful. It's a very family friendly place to stay, there's a game room and a pool. We...

I love to hear when people really enjoy their stays with us! “Clean rooms and friendly service” are exactly what we do our best to offer everyone who stays with us. Since a large percent of our guests tend to be “Repeat Guests” I feel we are delivering.

Reviewed 9 July 2016 via mobile

The staff is great and to have booked two weeks before, they were great accommodations. The ocean view is super and we will be back! The rooms were always very cool and the beds are to DIE FOR! The breakfast is very good and filling. Waffles, bagels, all kinds of fruit, juices, biscuits, Danish... Good stuff!
