We stayed two nights at the hotel in a king oceanfront room in the historic building. The view from our room was beautiful! The room was nicely decorated to match the period of the building. The lobby is somewhat dated but neat. The down size is an indoor pool and hot tub located right by the front desk. The lobby smells strongly of chlorine. The outside pool area is very nice and would be enhanced if the hot tub was located there. The grounds are well maintained and there is easy access to the beach where many activities can be enjoyed. We did not eat on the property but did go to the bar one evening. The bar area needs some updating and the bartender on duty on a Saturday night was not skilled in basic cocktails. We will definitely return to the hotel to enjoy its convenient access around the island !

Room Tip: If you do decide to choose accommodations in the historic building the third floor has the best views. There are several obstructions for the second floor oceanfront rooms.

We were beyond impressed with our stay at the King and Prince! The staff are extremely professional and friendly, and check-in was a breeze. I loved our room, with its beautiful furnishings and decorations. There was plenty of room in our king oceanfront and lots of storage space for clothes etc. The view was superb, with a great balcony that we spent a lot of time on just listening to and watching the ocean. We felt completely at home during our entire stay thanks to the nice room and excellent staff. We even received a complementary bottle of champagne shortly after our arrival because the concierge knew that we were celebrating our honeymoon. From our room in the oceanfront building we were literally steps to both the pool and the beach. The pool area, as well as the entire resort, were extremely well-kept and constantly cleaned. The beach on St. Simons is gorgeous, the nicest, cleanest, and prettiest beach I've ever seen in the US. The King and Prince is on the best location on the island, only a minute or two to the best dining and shopping venues and the pier and lighthouse. The entire island is gorgeous and fun to explore with its live oaks and beautiful houses. We've already recommended the King and Prince to several of our friends and family and we plan on making the King and Prince our regular vacation destination for years to come.

Room Tip: We stayed on a third floor king in the oceanfront building, which provided a great view of the ocean, and was just steps from the pool and beach. All the rooms in this building are oceanfront and have plenty of room. The king suite also had a couch, coffee table, desk and chairs as well as the king size bed.

We adore The King and Prince and have been going annually for nearly a decade. There's nothing like it. It's an exceptionally beautiful hotel with amazing ocean front views and beach. Extraordinary rooms of many types, phenomenal staff and an extraordinary food and beverage team that can provide a wonderful dining experience for the whole spectrum of special events and have a great variety and versatility. We ADORE the indoor lobby pool and jacuzzi as well as the beautiful outdoor pools (heating would be a gread value add!) and find the indoor pool such a unique experience ~ one that you don't find very often these days! We love the historic individuality of this gorgeous luxury hotel with all the amenities. As for rooms: We LOVE the ocean front 2~br Villas and ocean front Cabanas but know there are all kinds of phenomenal rooms including an ocean front resort view, the Turret rooms......It's fun to explore St. Simon's too on the Trolley Tour. This is one of our all time favorites and we're excited about the new lobby renovation as well......We love you K + P! Can't wait to get back sometime soon!

Room Tip: Cabanas, Ocean Front Villas, Resort/Ocean View Terrace, Turret Room......go for the view and have your own private balcony or terrace!

We stayed in one of the K&P houses last year (Christmas week 2013) and found it to be a wonderful experience. Our family stayed in the house and our friends stayed across the street in a hotel room. Everything was clean; the kitchen was well stocked and, even though it was Christmas week, housekeeping was on top of things w/ cleaning and fresh towels and extra packets of coffee. We especially enjoyed the beach access, the lovely swings on the patios and the gorgeous Christmas decorations throughout the facility--such a treat to enjoy the decorations and not have to decorate our own house. The two whirlpool baths in each of our two bathrooms were an appreciated luxury touch.

Our only glitch came at lunch on Christmas Day. Normally, K&P has a buffet, but because of extensive kitchen and dining room remodeling it was menu-only dining and the kitchen lost our order, much to the consternation of our server who apparently was not being well received the multiple times she went back to check. (The order got blown behind the stove by a fan the cooks were using.) It did take two hours to get us fed, but management comped the meal for our inconvenience and the experience did not mar our enjoyment of the day or of our trip. Seasoned travelers know things happen sometimes and the important thing is what management makes out of a bad event.

There is one odd thing: the swimming pool is in the lobby of the hotel. We did not care as we are not inclined to take a dip, but it did seem odd that it was there where people coming and going are walking around it and also, it meant that swimmers would have to drip their way back to their rooms to get showered and dressed. We didn't care, but I mention this only because families with children might not find this convenient.

We do plan to return this Christmas season and are taking other friends with us as well. (I would have given the K&P a 5-star rating except for the dining experience, but I think that was an isolated thing that would not happen to most people.) We are truly looking forward to enjoying this lovely facility again.
