“A wonderful place to not only stay but experience.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Our stay started with the owner, (Joe McDonough) checking us in and helping us with our bags. We soon found out that Joe was loved by all of his staff because of his hands on management. It was nice to see people loving what they do and who they work with.
Our suite was spectacular with a great balcony and ocean view. Our breakfast, (which was included) was fresh cooked to order each day and delicious.
Dinner and appetizers on the rooftop was a special treat with a great view.
If you are looking for a first class experience, the Ocean Lodge is well worth your time.

The hotel is beautiful. Rooms are very comfortable. For the price I feel the little extras like good quality soaps, shampoos, and lotions wouldn't be too much to expect. A working clock in the bedroom would be nice too. The restaurant is convenient by just so so.

From the moment you start to check into Oceans you know you picked the right place to vacation. You are treated like family by ALL the staff. Within days they all know you by name. The rooms are just beautiful. They are done in an Italian motif. The bed & linens are just great. You truly feel pampered at Oceans. The breakfast is very good, & Gloria will get you whatever you want. Everyone is super nice, & since it is such a small hotel you intermingle with other guests should you so desire. The setting for the rooftop restaurant is beautiful. However, Joe needs a new chef. This has the potential for a 4 star restaurant. They provide you with beach chairs & umbrellas if you wish, & the beach across the street is very private as opposed to the large hotel complex down the road. What we truly loved was the fact that there were no screaming kids around. Mind you, we have 11 grand kids, but sometimes, & this was a time, we wanted an adult vacation. There are beautiful homes surrounding this chic hotel. You have some wonderful restaurants just a short drive away. This hotel exceeded my expectations, & we will recommend it to our friends & will definitely return. BRAVO to Joe & all the staff. You guys are awesome!

Room Tip: All rooms are decorated beautifully. Higher floors have a little more ocean view. That is your call.

This hotel is a cross between a home, a hotel and a B&B. It is absolutely beautiful, high class and so comfortable! We stayed in the suite and it was amazing! The porch was TO DIE FOR overlooking the ocean with bright beautiful stars gleaming at night! The staff was more than professional, down to earth and accommodating. The FREE breakfast in the morning was amazing including the homemade scones YUM! The owner Joe was present and stopped to chat with my hubby and I! The 15 step walk to the beach was so amazing and there is the cutest town just a bike ride away. The ONLY reason I did not give it 5-stars was the rooftop rest. The food was tasteless and overpriced. They should get a new chef because the scenery is beautiful, but the food is VERY lacking....

Room Tip: Get one of the suites, the porch is amazing!

I had made a reservation at the near by King & Prince, for my wife and I, while attending a two day board meeting on St. Simons. We have stayed at the King & Prince many times in the past, and while it is an outstanding beachfront resort, I decided to try the Ocean Lodge because of ratings and reviews on Trip Advisor and recommendations from friends who raved about the views from the rooftop bar and restaurant, and the quality of the food and service. While the room rates were a little more, the amenities of the Ocean Lodge are well worth the difference in cost.

The suites are so spacious and comfortable, with his and her bathrooms, two televisions in the sitting are and bedroom, and full kitchen. The views and breeze from the balcony overlooking the beach is simply spectacular. Wonderful cook to order breakfasts off of the lobby and hot scones that were delicious! With only 15 suites, the staff know who you are and treat you as a VIP....highly recommend this for a unique "couples" vacation alternative!

Room Tip: If available, try the 5th floor suite that adjoins the rooftop restaurant and lounge and dine in pri...

What a beautiful place! The staff is fantastic and the hotel didn't miss any details. Pure luxury at its best , it's so nice we're staying another day. Dinner st the roof top was great, stunning view and ocean breeze. Tuscan charm in the south!

We booked the Ocean Lodge for our weekend honeymoon. It was just as luxurious as you could want for such an occasion! To start, we were greeted with enthusiasm and kindness. It seemed like everyone we encountered had heard our good news and was excited for us. We were shown to our room and were very impressed with how nice it was. The jacuzzi tub, the robes, a beautiful balcony view and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on .... We knew we had picked the right place! We had read reviews about 'the best breakfast' and we were not disappointed! The scones were amazing (and I usually don't even eat scones). We loved everything about our stay and we will definitely be back!
