“First rate from start to finish.”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

Just left The K&P and could not have had a better stay. A big thank you to the entire staff there, from the front desk at check-in to the bar and pool crew, everyone was always friendly and attentive. The newly updated lobby and pool area were beautifully and tastefully done to meld with the charm of this historic landmark. I will not stay at any other resort or hotel except the K&P now after this trip.

Beautiful renovation, fantastic friendly service, lovely rooms, perfect location, the King & Prince offers old world class and opulence with modern amenities and truly delivers on every front. Probably the best location on St Simons Island but definitely a wonderful place to stay.

I will begin by saying I've been before and will return but wish to avoid the same experience.

Checked in on Monday May 5 for an annual conference. I was please to note the remodeled lobby minus the pool and the scent of chlorine. It isn't the design I would have chosen given the classic style of the main building and the fact that its on the National Register but i understand the need to be fresh and hip to attract a younger client.

I was there for an annual business conference and realize the conference rate doesn't warrant an ocean view two bedroom suite but lets\'s face it. The main reason you choose this property is the proximity to the water.

Second to an ocean or partial ocean view would be a less desirable courtyard view or lesser still a parking lot but to assign a paying guest my room (247) is an abomination. It should be reserved for desperate shelter seeking travelers or employees that find it easier to stay than commute.

The view from the single sunlight starved window was of a six foot fence to mask the alternate view of several Carrier air conditioning units was just pathetic. Add to this light lacking view of American industrial prowess I enjoyed the pleasure of a squeaky ceiling fan all night.

The next morning I shared my previous nights punishment with the front desk. The woman I spoke with was empathetic and offered to move me but had no continuous rooms available for the remainder of my stay and would have to move me twice.

Having had much nicer past experiences I chose to stay put and take advantage of the reason I was there.

A business lunch on the patio was quite satisfying as was the catered dinner for our function. The staff was friendly although additional guest services training is warranted. I’m not seeking a more genteel southern style but a little polish with a dose of professionalism focusing on a genuine guest appreciation wouldn't hurt.

A property with a rich history and well-crafted brand such as The King and Prince has painstakingly developed should never subject a guest to a room of this quality. Furthermore I would encourage the General Manager and front desk staff to stay a night in each room to obtain a personal feel for what each accommodation offers and ask themselves would they like to stay in such a room.

Room Tip: Avoid at all cost room 247

Attended a four day conference held at the King and Prince Hotel the first week of May 2014 in which the hotel prepared the luncheons on the second and third day for about 200 people. The first day we were served a "chicken" mystery meat kind of burrito; the second day we were served five battered, mostly batter, shrimp. The food was nothing of the quality of other restaurants in the area including the Marsh-side Grill in Brunswick, B & J's in Darien or even the Crab Shack a few blocks away on St. Simons.
The hotel itself was nice and the most valuable resource it offered were the employees who were helpful, attentive and pleasant.

I love going to the King and Prince when I am on the Georgia Coast. You will love the historic feel of the hotel, right on the Atlantic Ocean, their newly decorated pool area and also their new lobby, wonderful.
Their food at the restaurant ECHO is wonderful, it is just a great experience every time I go. Don't miss out on this wonderful resort, and their golf course isn't too bad either!

We recently spent a weekend at King and Prince while attending a wedding at the nearby lighthouse. We stayed in historic, main building, in Rm 206, which was newly decorated with balcony over looking ocean. Some of the rooms are not remodeled according to others in our party. Best to ask. Room was lovely and sound proof.
There was a convention of marriage/family councilors in hotel at the time. Their food/beverage buffet was set up in the lobby. I found this to be a little annoying and, kind of funny, considering all the weddings. A wedding reception was held on 2nd story landing area that we used to get to our room. The flowers etc. were beautiful, but at almost $400/night, why weren't they using rooms out of main lobby areas for parties and food service?
The lobby is beautiful and renovated well. Maybe that's why it serves double duty.
The largest public beach in St. Simon's with ample parking is a short walk away and crowds spilled over to K & P beach front.
Echo restaurant and bar were lovely and food was good.
