“Nicely renovated but needs a little help”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We stayed here on our way back from the Masters. We booked the Governors Suite and had high expectations. To get to the overall quality of the facility, they need to bring everything up to the same level.
The Echo food quality is inconsistent. The same dish is not prepared the same each time. The food was served cold after sitting, awaiting delivery. It took 3 attempts to make chicken wings, cold, raw, then correct. Management was immediately there and apologetic but in the end the food was average at best. Much better food elsewhere.
Housekeeping is not good. Floors are cleaned with a spray product and not rinsed therefore they are slippery and sticky. An accident waiting to happen. When were room fans cleaned last? Workers go through the motions but do not see dirt. The polished brass elevator is a disgrace.
Room was nice. Staff was friendly and courteous. The golf course lacks the same attention to detail that stops this from being world class. But it could be! We will try it again.

Room Tip: If you prefer a two room suite the Governors is very nice but it does not have a balcony. It was qui...

Thank you for your kind words and candid feedback. We are very grateful that you have given us a nice reveiw despite some of the issues you encountered. We have recently reopened our restaurant and have had some growing pains while most of the response has been overwhelmingly positive. The culinary team will be working closely with our service staff to improve on our consistency and provide excellent quality at a reasonable price. Our historic hotel provides some challenges in the cleaning process and the housekeeping will use the infomation you provided to help improve their services.
Thank you for your time in reviewing our property and we look forward to seeing you again.

This is our 3rd or 4th stay at this resort. We have always been pleased with the rooms, service and friendly atmosphere. The renovations of the lobby, restaurant and bar area are stunning. The decor although modern blends well with the older section of the hotel and has made the lobby a welcoming, relaxing place for drinks and dining. It seems to now be a very popular place for locals as well as tourists. We usually opt for an oceanfront room. Our plans are to return as often as possible.

Room Tip: For the best ocean view I would recommend the historic part of hotel . Our oceanfront overlooked th...

The hotel and the area were beautiful. We weren't able to use the many pools because of the cool weather, but they did have a heated pool. There was a hot tub, but very small. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our air conditioner was rattling so we called maintenance. They were prompt and fixed the problem immediately. Although we didn't go into the onsite restaurant, we ordered some food at the bar a few times and it was delicious. The bar area and lobby were nice and open, good place to relax and meet friends.

Took an unexpected side trip to SSI. Called to reserve room at the last minute because as I was unable ro reserve online with such short notice. Roger helped me out and still gave me the 10% online Spring Break deal. We really enjoyed ourselves (us and kids ages 6,9,10). The bar service by the outdoor heated pool (by the ocean) was fabulous as was the stroll on the beach at dusk into sunset. It was especially nice to see many of the guests staying in the original hotel enjoying the bench swings outside of their rooms. It is obvious that the current owners care a great deal for this property and rightly so. There have clearly been some significant upgrades to the hotel and grounds. I hope they continue their efforts to keep this establishment at the top of her game!

I recently stayed at the King and Prince for a wedding weekend. I had been concerned about staying there because of past stories about it being out of date. I was wrong...at least for the lobby, bar, pool, and ocean side rooms. All the areas we were in had been updated. The staff was great and we had a wonderful time. I would go back. I would also upgrade to the ocean view rooms...very nice.

Room Tip: Ocean view is the way to go.

My husband drove in from Charleston SC. It was a beautiful weekend. The people were friendly and the service was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone.

The area is wonderful. We rented a sailboat and rode bikes. All rentals in the area.
