The Beachview Club
Ranked #8 of 9 Hotels in Jekyll Island
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We booked a jacuzzi suite to celebrate our anniversary. The room was infested with "love bugs". The hotel staff was less than apologetic about the condition of the room saying "this is the love bug season."

I have numerous pictures I'm willing to share

The Beachview is one of the older establishments on JI, so if you're expecting it to have that brand new look and feel, you will be disappointed. Of course, for that brand new look and feel you can pay twice as much and stay at The Hampton Inn. However if you're looking for a great location, with quaint charm, then you will not go wrong by selecting the Beachview Club. The rooms and the facilities are old but well maintained. The Hotel doesn't provide breakfast, but all rooms come with efficiencies so it's easy enough to prepare breakfast in your room. The Club provides bikes for your use, which is another cost savings over renting them on the island. The access to the Beach, which you would not think to be an issue at a place like JI, is actually difficult at some of the Hotels, but not at the Beachview Club. All in all, unless you are hung up about having the newest of everything I would say that the Beachview Club is the best combination for a value minded traveler. If money is no object, you can do better elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard view, which faces not only the beach and the pool, but nice landscaping. The ou...

We stayed 2 nights. The location is absolutely gorgeous, very close to the beach. You can cycle round the island but it is not in the island center. There is a nice pool, quite large and clean.
Our rooms were a bit dark and dated. The beds are comfortable and clean. There is no breakfast in the hotel.

Our king room was clean and spacious. The staff was great. The free bikes were a great plus. It was a lot of fun to ride bikes all over the island and see so much nature, including deer, raccoons, birds, horses. The pool was just outside our door and the beach was only yards away. Loved it!!

Room Tip: There was not a restaurant and I don't know if there was a fitness room, I was there for the out...

Like the other reviewers, we were wowed by the pretty property and the proximity to the beach. Our room, however, seemed like it had seen better days and smelled musty. The little fridge and the air conditioner were both overly loud, as was the noise from the pool. There were two beds, falling somewhere between a twin and a full size, they seemed small, at any rate. When I asked about bicycles, I was told that I could rent them, but was not offered any to borrow. Staff were quite friendly. For the money, I would look elsewhere.

We just had the one night on Jekyl Island and were pointed to the Beachview by staff at the Visitors Center as you drive on to the island. Nothing stood out for us, it was ok, clean and reasonably comfortable, with a side view of the ocean but the overhanging trees made it dark inside (ok I could draw the curtain and put on the lights but I want to see the views). Again as previously said it offers a bed and little else. I suppose I seem a bit negative as we didn't enjoy J I much at all (good beach walks apart) but St Simon's Island next door has much more going for it.

We really enjoyed our stay. Privately owned Inn and run by folks who care. Walk to beach or stay at lovely pool surrounded by big oaks. Our room had micro & fridge and even had a small selection of china, silver & glasses !
Only thing that would make it better would be offering a breakfast .... so take some instant oatmeal :)

Room Tip: Rooms behind the pool have private balcony.
