“A Good Choice on St. Simon Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

This hotel is pretty standard Holiday Inn EXpress but the location is on a quiet lane in Plantation Village complete with colonial style buildings & beautiful landscaping.
Just a short drive to town center.
Our room was nice, well kept and looked out onto the Village.
The only disadvantage was that both the business center and fitness room were located a half block away at the Best Western which is jointly owned.
The quiet location, nice breakfast, and pleasant staff make this a good choice.

Rooms are small, but entire hotel very clean. ALL personnel were pleasant and helpful. They have the "service thing" down pat. The location was convenient to restaurants, etc. and in a very quiet neighborhood. Our room had an additional sink outside of the bathroom, which worked out well. Breakfast OK. One problem was the toilet. The top of the seat is at approx. 14 1/2 - 15 in. off the ground, no kidding. It looked like it belonged in a kindergarten. I am tall and have a bum knee, so it was difficult. I do not normally need a handicapped accessible room, but this was really low.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights while on the island for a wedding. Check in was late, easy, and with a very friendly night staff. The room was spacious and clean and the bathroom was larger and brightly lit. Internet was easy to connect to. The bed was not the most comfortable, but it didn't keep me up nights and I didn't feel any kinks in the mornings. There was a nice selection at breakfast, but few tables and we ended up bringing breakfast back to the room each morning. Overall, the hotel was fine. It served its purpose and it was clean, which is the most important thing to me. We had a block rate for the wedding, but even at that rate, I'm not sure I'd stay at this hotel again given the rates of some of the other hotels in the area.

We are a prioritu club member so are used to staying in Holiday inns. This one is as nice as any others we have stayed in. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fresh and hot. We were a little sceptical after some of the reviews we read on here. But would stay here again on our next visit. Beds were very comfy!

Not one of the best Holiday Inn Expresses we have stayed in. Was not acknowledged as a Priority Club Member. However, staff was friendly. Bed not nearly as nice as most properties. Very good breakfast. We really like St. Simons Island, but would not stay at this property again.
