“Everyone made us feel so special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This was our 3rd stay at Ocean Lodge and it just keeps getting better. Joe (owner) was always around to chat or give advice or just say hello. Gloria in the breakfast kitchen presented such care, graciousness, hospitality, smiles, and genererosity!!! We just loved her. Anne, Jackie, William and, of course, all the housekeepers were always going beyond our expectations (all the bottled water I wanted in our fridge!!!) for whatever we asked for....and I asked for alot :-) Please take the bikes out to explore the island in such a peaceful, wonderful way. We visited St. Simons Baptist Church on Sunday and although our clothes were totatlly beach bum wear, we were accepted kindly and with smiles and warmth. We truly enjoyed the Memorial Day service.

Room Tip: 301 and 401 are our favorites!

What a fun experience!! It's a great hotel, the breakfasts were wonderful and the hospitality unbeatable!! The staff takes such wonderful care and is just the best! The rooms are very large and decorated with such care…..wonderful balconies with ocean views. The restaurant was also a great place with super food and views. All in all a great time was had by all!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good….the higher the floor, the better the ocean view, but also pricer.

This is such a unique hotel- I almost hate to rave about it in length for fear of not getting a reservation in the future!! I had ann amazing experience and the staff are over the top in getting you anything you need. the architecture and small details of the building itself is a creative artist's delight. Ask Joe, the owner, to tell you more about the interesting artwork and beautiful tromp de lei in every room. The balcony has the most beautiful views too-

Room Tip: 4th and 5th floors are awesome views- although the restaurant is on the 5th floor.

This stay was for five nights and thanks to the wonderful staff we once again enjoyed every
Minute of the entire stay. The luxury suites are beautifully decorated, comfortable, and always
5 star maintained. Our fourth floor suite afforded us a spectacular view and most delightful
Balcony experience. Jackie, Gloria, Michelle, and Glo all deserve high praise for their ongoing
High standard of hospitality and service excellence always provided during our stays.

I would be remiss if I failed to mention how wonderful the breakfast experience is each morning,
Starting again with the service, then the food quality and presentation, and ending with the
Freshly prepared scones= THE BEST !

Congrats to all and many thanks for all of the personal kindnesses, Bill & Marion O'

We spent our honeymoon here and couldn't have been happier. Every person we encountered went above and beyond to make sure our stay was amazing. We felt like we were the only guests there! Not to mention the great daily breakfast. We will certainly be back.

We had heard great things from a friend who had stayed there and we were not disappointed.
Every member of the staff was attentive, hospitable, and efficient. To us it had the feel of a bed and breakfast where we got to know the staff a bit and we truly appreciated the "Happy Mother's Day" greetings from many staff members. We especially enjoyed the ocean views, the room decor & amenities,the make to order breakfasts, and the conversations with the owner.
We had a satisfying dinner on the roof restaurant,with spectacular views and great food.
In summary the quality experience we received reminded me of two superior organizations that also pay attention to the details - Disney & the Ritz Carleton. Congrats to the owner for creating such a wonderful lodge. We will definitely stay again!!

The owner, Joe McDonough, has created a beautiful gem, nestled in the heart of St. Simon's Island overlooking the ocean. He takes pleasure in meeting his guests and making sure they are enjoying their stay in every way. His staff is sincerely caring, friendly, and responsive. Michelle particularly catered to our every whim...from checking on housekeeping details and amenities to our wonderful, delicious homemade breakfast! The suite itself is luxurious and so very comfortable--plenty of room and just spoiled with 2 baths and 2 TVs! This destination will be a cherished escape from our routine again and again.
