location location location is key here. Nice comfortable hotel, a bit pricey but that is what you pay for a hotel on the beach.

My son and I traveled to ST. George the day after the power was restored to the island. WE were very lucky as our room was one of two that were actually rented out for the evening as water damage and other issues from Tropical Storm Debbie. WE had the most wonderful experience. The front desk people were extremely nice, friendly and helpful. The hotel is an older hotel of cement block our room was upstairs in the middle - very large room with great air conditioning. small fridge, microwave, coffee pot and bench style table to sit on. Large vanity area - BEDS extremely comfortable. Room was very clean. WE were very happy to be able to come to ST George for just two nights. As renting houses and Condos at ST George in the summer time you have to do it on a weekly bases and we didn't have a week. Buccaneer Inn was perfect for us and I can honestly say I will stay here again we were that happy with our choice. Nice, quiet, friendly perfect place and just steps from the beach with their own walkway and steps leading right to the beach. Perfect view of the beach no matter where your room is just walk out your door and look. No pets but totally understandable. VEry very happy to have been able to stay here.

I have stayed at the Buccaneer Inn many times. My wife (now ex) left a bag full of items we had purchased at Disney World in the parking lot when we departed. We called back and the staff had found the bag and said they would mail it to us, which they did....we didn't pay the postage!

Always a clean room. Sure it is "old" but I prefer to call it retro. There is an absence of coffee at the hotel but other than that, it is just fine. Great view.

Now that I am single, it is a good place to be scoping out lonely Navy women.

It has been at least 8-9 years since I was there but looking forward to the last week of June.

Room Tip: ask for a room up top facing the pool...

We like to stay at the Buccaneer when on St. George Island, not so much because it's a great place but really because it's the only place. The staff are somewhat no-nonsense and in our several stays there, we've only encountered one really friendly staff member (the cleaning staff are great and very friendly). You are given a price list and that's what you pay, there are no discounts, period. That's OK, the prices are fairly reasonable in the off season. Although the motel is old, the rooms are always clean, the beds are comfortable, and the AC works well. It's just fine for what you need when you go to the beach, a place to sleep. We've never heard any noise and always sleep well. The location is great, right on the beach, and there is a pool and a small deck area overlooking the beach. You're in walking distance to a good raw bar (Eddy Teach's), but we didn't find any good coffee on the island yet. We'll go back, and we know what to expect, nothing fancy but a beautiful beach.

Room Tip: I see no reason to choose anything other than a "park" view room, which means a view of th...

Stayed here for one night while doing some work in the area. Didn't care for it. It was clean but it has been a long time since I stayed in a hotel with cinder block walls and real keys to the room. The couple next door to fought all night and the bed was not comfortable. The staff was friendly but I just expect more when you crack the $90 per night barrier.
