“Stop lookin' and start bookin'!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

My husband and I took a 4 day weekend and made the trip down to St. Simons, GA. We secured a suite on the 3rd floor. PERFECT! Nice view from the balcony of the water, short walk to the beach, large and ornate guest rooms, beds fit for Kings and Queens (you need a ladder to get it into them), 2 bathrooms, full kitchen . . . and peaceful . . . no kids allowed! Michelle was great at breakfast each morning - cooked to order and delish! Will was more than accommodating in showing us around and fulfilling our every request. Jackie hooked us up with the best restaurants in town and could not have been more friendly! Every other nameless staff member we ran into was friendly and helpful. Happy employees = Happy guests!

If you're looking for a relaxing, stress-free place to go and stay, Ocean Lodge and St. Simons will exceed your expectation. We're completely spoiled now! Totally relaxed - mission accomplished! Who wants to go home? Not us!

Room Tip: Get a room on floor 3 or higher for a view of the water

Although we were only there one night, we thoroughly enjoyed each moment. The building is beautiful and all of the staff from the front desk clerk who checked us in to the one who checked us out treated us to superb service. We felt at home from the moment we arrived.

We had delicious appetizers on the deck with drinks while watching a beautiful sunset over the ocean. Joe the owner took time to come by and welcome us personally.

Breakfast was delicious and tailored to our requests. The service was impeccable.

Thnaks to everyone for a memorable trip!

My husband and I splurged for our 5th Anniversary and it was worth every penny. We liked Saint Simons Island but we loved the Ocean Lodge. The beautiful accommodations are what made our trip special. We both agreed we need to go to Saint Simons Island again just to experience another stay at the Ocean Lodge and yes, see some sites we missed this time as it was only for a weekend. This is the perfect special occasion hotel and has to be #1 for weddings as I can't image anywhere better.

Exceeded our expectations in every way! My wife and I spent a weekend just after I returned from a 3 week business trip in China. We were in need of a little pampering and got exactly that. The suites are huge and very comfortable, the staff will know you by name, the free breakfasts are awesome and brought to your room if you ask, and my god...the robes! They're made out of magic silky cloud puffs or something. Excellent ocean view from your porch and the restaurant even makes decent salmon. They basically rocked our world.

Room Tip: Be aware that children under age 14 aren't allowed! We didn't realize and brought our 1 year...

We stayed July 31-August 2nd to celebrate my husbands birthday and had a wonderful time! Everything is EXACTLY as it is marketed so no bait and switch going on here! The staff was beyond courteous and helpful all the way to the owner! We were just blown away and the Island is great so much to do if you choose to... We loved it and will be sending our parents for Holiday! The New Mr. & Mrs.

My husband, son and I just returned from a week's stay at the Ocean Lodge. I agree with every other review you have seen before this in that it's a beautiful Hotel, great location and wonderful little Island. The rooms are beautiful, clean and the bed incredibly comfortable. But the service is what sets this boutique Hotel apart. Special thanks to Michelle, Gloria and Jackie who alternately made our beds daily and served us breakfast. Breakfast is included every day and is made to order. They have a great selection of choices and the service, again is above reproach. The room where breakfast is served has beautiful views of the ocean and it was a wonderful way to start every day.
Our only complaint is that the rooftop restaurant was above our room and so it could be quite noisy in the evening. But we were so tired from swimming and our daily excursions to the wonderful little town nearby that most nights we were able to sleep through the noise. There were lots of good restaurants in town and much to see. Great shopping too! All in all, it's a wonderful place to stay and we would certainly go back again! Loved St. Simon's Island. Thanks for everything!!!

The Merena Family.

Room Tip: Best views of the ocean from the top floor. Avoid staying under the restaurant.
