This was our first trip to St. Simons and tried to get a room at the King and Prince, but couldn't- turned out to be lucky for us as Ocean Lodge was wonderful. Don't rule this place out because of the rates because it is absolutely worth the money. The overall experience and 'extras' make this a very special place. Staff were all helpful and so nice. Met the owner who appears to try to meet and talk to as many guests as possible. The suites/rooms were perfect- clean, beautiful decor. The separate bedroom and 2nd bath are so nice even if there are only 2 people staying there. We stayed in a 2nd floor corner room- had some limited 'peeks' of the ocean from the balcony. It was very chilly (at times cold) and windy, but the balcony was so nice we bundled up and had coffee out there in the morning and a glass of wine in the afternoon. We tried to get into the restaurant the first night we were there, but they had a large group booked for several hours, so we made reservations for the next night. As soon as we were seated the following night, we were told to select a complimentary appetizer to make up for not being able to accomodate us the night before. Wow- that was a nice start to the evening. Numerous wine selections by the glass, good prices. Anti-pasta platter was excellent. Shrimp scampi good (LOTS of butter), husbands steak very good. When they served his steak, it was overcooked. They quickly took it away with an apology and in a few minutes delivered a perfectly cooked filet. There is a beautiful outside eating/cocktail area that I know will be standing room only when it is warmer.
Breakfast is included and was mostly very good-frittatas, cheese blintzes and home fries as the highlights, with the french toast only OK.
They provide bikes for guests and I had a great ride around some of the neighborhoods- I love seeing where the locals live!
Doubt we will ever try to stay anywhere else when we return to St. Simons.

We stayed at the Ocean Lodge to celebrate my 44th birthday, one that I will forever remember. The staff was very attentative from the time we called to book until the moment we checked out. I walked in our room (which have names) Sea Island and was blown away. The hotel is just footsteps away from the beach area and minutes to shopping and restaurants. However, you must try the Tapas Lounge on the roof top, you will not be disappointed, the food and the service is above the rest. We feel in love all over again. Already planning our next trip back this summer. Thank you Ocean Lodge for the best time of our lives.

After many stressful weeks this was just what my husband and I needed. We relaxed and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were excellent and all of the staff was friendly and the food wonderful. We loved the setup of the suite and the personal amenties were great.

Although it was chilly, we love spending time at the beach whenever we can,

We would also recommend the trolley tour if you plan to visit. Bunny was great.

My recent visit to Ocean Lodge was wonderful! The hotel was FIVE STAR quality with an amazing view of the beach. The breakfast every morning was delicious. Service at the hotel and restaurants were excellent. The room was decorated beautifully and made me feel right at home. The bed was so comfortable...I slept like a baby! The restaurant bar up stairs and terrace offer an amazing view of the ocean. I will recommend this hotel to all my friends and family! I am planning another visit there this summer!

I recently had one of the best trips to St Simons Island and it was all due to the #1 southern hospitality of the Ocean Lodge. From the room to the restuarant to the hometown feel, I truely was treated like family at the Ocean Lodge. Thank You! Cant wait to visit again soon.

My wife and I were married there in May 2009. What an incredible experience...the room was decadent, the food sensational, and even though the weather was a freaky, week-long rainstorm event, the staff helped us find fun things to do and see in the gloomy weather. This stay was worth every penny we paid,,,and gave us a wedding that we loved.
