“Oceanside Elegance”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

The newly refreshed King and Prince is must see if only for drinks and dinner in the new Echo bar and dining room. We had the pleasure to stay for our anniversary in one of the newly redone oceanfront rooms in the historic building. Gorgeous view from our balcony. Staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Although pricey, shop for specials. We were able to save substantially by checking the internet per...

We stayed in one of the Oceanfront rooms in the Oceanfront building. The room was spacious, clean and perfectly located to enjoy the sights and sounds of the beach. Since the major renovation was undertaken the main building has a hugely different design and is a lot more functional. The staff was attentive and accommodating and handled every request quickly and with a smile. Meals in the Echo dining room were superb and service at the bar was a cut above. The real gem was our round of golf at the K&P course on the north end of the island. Staff welcomed us like we were old, familiar members. The course itself is challenging but gorgeous. We will definitely be going back to both the hotel and the course.

Recently spend several nights - first night in an ocean front Cabana Room and two nights in a fourth floor Oceanfront room. The Cabana Room was 'very tight' and also very damp. it felt like the air handler was pumping in more moisture than it was removing. There was also noticable rust on metal fixtures - definitely not worth the $329 rate. The 4th floor Oceanfront room had a VERY noticable musty smell as soon as we opened the door and only disappeared when the sliding door to the balcony was left open. Anytime the room was shut up, the musty smell was very obvious when we returned. Bathroom was very small and everything was extemely 'dated'. The bed pillows are a 'joke' for a Beach and Golf Resort.

The common areas - eating and pool, were very well kept. I can't say I like the 'modern' look to the lobby, bar, conversational area and ECHO - their new restaurant, but it's well appointed and the food was worth the cost. Bar prices were high. . .$3.00+ for a Coke makes a run to the local convenience store the best option.

Stayed here with small children on the south side in a 2 bedroom villa....The location is wonderful- right on the beach. Also my children loved the various pools- one ideal for babies, the others great for the entire family. Staff was very accomodating and friendly...plenty of activites close by but we did not want to leave the resort. We will be back.

The King and Prince is situated perfectly a few miles from the entrance to St. Simons. On first sight the property looks great and it is by no means a bad place to stay. My wife and I enjoyed our time there very much and would certainly return if the occasion arises.

My only real complaints are minor in the grand scheme of things, but the hotel ownership and management should know, hence the review.

Many of the hotel's mechanical fixtures (elevators, door locks, access gates, etc.) are in need of repair and / or replacement. Many times we had to scan our key cards multiple times (5 or 6) in order to get a door or gate to open and at times it got frustrating.

Normally, this wouldn't be a big issue to me except that the King and Prince is billed as a Four-Star resort and the nightly rates reflect it. That being the case, I would expect better in terms of maintenance and general upkeep.

As I said, I'd return, though I may try other properties on St. Simons before I do.

We work diligently to try and keep all of our locks functioning properly, unfortunately the salt air consistently poses a problem. We hope to see you again soon.

Went for a business meeting but I was happy when I heard they were pet friendly. Arrived and we were given the WYNN Cottage. When we went in we were hit with a really strong musty odor. Ewww it was really gross. We were brining the bags in and by the 3rd trip of keep smelling this I called and we were moved over to the Oleander room which was a standard room. We were just happy for a room that didn't smell. The pool is nice, they have a restaurant called ECHO inside which is average to good. Bottom line we had a group rate of $240/night. I would not stay here if I was in town for a personal vacation.

I am from the local area, but my wife is not. We stayed here when my father passed away last September. I had never stayed here before but had heard that this was a nice, quiet, and luxurious place to stay while in town. All true.

The catering service was superb. The hotel was very clean, quiet, and nice. It is a bit of a drive from Brunswick, but if you're staying on Saint Simons it is worth it becuase when you wake up "you're already there." I would recommend.
