Reviewed 24 July 2016

I thought it to be excessively expensive. I was told it had an ocean view; ir was more of an ocean glimpse. It was cool 101. I should have asked to see it first. It as an angled view of the beach. Certainly not worth 200.00.

Very nice rooms, clean. Comfortable bed. Shower area a little tight. Friendly, helpful staff. Parking is limited but about half of it is sheltered. Continental breakfast adequate-we did not find many eating choices within comfortable walking distance but this was just a short stay so no problem.. I would definitely stay here again.

Since we booked through Hotels.com, we got the worse located room, right outside of the check in desk. You could here everything going on in the lobby. If you book here, call to be sure you are not placed here. There isn't much for breakfast, but it's included so hard to complain. The rooms are basic, but comfortable. Nice to...

We really like the location, rooms, staff and everything about the DeSoto except the misleading smoking policy. Sure the rooms are non-smoking, but the balconies, exterior hallways, pool area and beach chair area are all heavily used by smokers. I paid extra for a room with an ocean view and balcony which we could never use because of the constant...

2-night stay; room was never cleaned. Front desk could only get fresh towels and file report. Both hotel phone numbers (800 & local) were disconnected during evening. In morning no one ever calls concerning the "report," no follow up, no apologies, no comment cards. Check out at 10:30 without any word or apology. Amazing! Never witnessed anything like this. $150...

A great location on the north end of the island by some excellent restaurants. Hotel is just a bit south of the lighthouse and it is a nice walk down the beach to the pier and all the shops and restaurants located on the south end.

Easy check-in, cozy room with a really good view. Bed was extremely comfortable! Continental breakfast each morning: muffins, waffles, cereal, sausage biscuits, pastries, etc. Favorite thing about Desoto was the walk to the beach was very minimal.. had personal shower to wash the sand from your feet. Also for a small fee they set up nice chairs/tables/umbrellas on the beach...

Everyone was very friendly. Office staff, housekeepers and maintenance personnel made us feel very welcome and safe. Rooms very spacious and clean. I have recommended friends to stay there when they go to Tybee. I will definitely return soon.

The staff at the Desoto are always friendly and accommodating. This trip I take every year. I am always happy with my room. The housekeeping staff is always helpful. This hotel is maintained well and I feel very comfortable referring others there. This was my tenth year to stay at Desoto Beach. I will return again next year.

Nice clean hotel. Maybe a little overpriced for what it is but it is on an island. Older hotel but has been recently remodeled. Be aware that the "ocean view" is a side view looking across the parking lot unless you opt for the private balcony rooms. Even then you are still looking across the parking lot. All in all,...
