We reserved an Oceanfront room with private balcony and King bed. The room was good although a bit dated. The view of the beach and ocean was right off our balcony and was wonderful. The staff here was very friendly and a continental breakfast was included too.

It was Spring Crush weekend around there. It was filled with loud obnoxious guests. Nothing peaceful during that weeekend. We were able through booking.com to get refunded and changed our venue. However at 2am after numerous complaints, the hotel staff told us we were 'stuck there'.

We stayed in one of the Garden Suites (south) in March. It was spacious and there was room for all 4 of us (2 adults and 2 kids). It was very convenient to walk to the beach and that is where we spent most of our time there. The pool was small, but looked nice and clean but we never...

We a great stay at this hotel. Memorable without a doubt being our first family vacation with our babies. Our 2, and 1 year old boys had never seen, or set foot on a beach! We hope to make this a family tradition for my young little family to grow into.

This place was great! We were in town for a wedding in savanna but wanted to stay outside of the city itself so we chose Tybee. Glad we did! The hotel was clean and beds comfortable. Very friendly staff! Our morning walks on the beach were wonderful. Didn't try the breakfast. this place gave us exactly what we needed!

The ocean view room overlooking the beach was one of the best Oceanview views that I have ever experienced. Worth every penny. My brother has COPD and couldn't walk on the beach but he never left the balcony.

This hotel is located on the beach, just walk out by the pool and see the magnificent white sandy beach and the vast ocean. Short walk along the beach to the pier. Friendly staff - game room located by the pool for families to play pool!

Loved the pool and the staff were very helpful and friendly.The pool was the warmest one we've swam in, in months and at least 7 hotels. The view from our room was fantastic, my wife loved we could hear the waves, we slept like babies.
