“Great place in the middle of everything St. Simons”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We had stayed at the Village Inn before but it was full for our overnight to St. Simons, so we tried this place. Glad we did. My sister-in-law and nephew had a 1st floor room and Deb and I had the Penthouse. Plenty of room there for the 4 of us to hang out when we weren't out and about. Nice balcony looking directly at the lighthouse. No complaints about anything. We didn't try the breakfast as we wanted to eat at a place we had breakfast on our last trip. Good coffee in room with Keurig, thought that was a nice touch. I would ask that housekeeping use just a bit less carpet fresh when cleaning up as it was a little overwhelming, but that is the only "complaint" and not much of one. We would definitely stay here again. Staff was friendly and helpful when needed and very pleasant to talk with. Great place! Give it a try.

Room Tip: It's a little expensive...but the Penthouse is fun in more ways than one!

We stayed 3 nights at St. Simons. The staff is so friendly! We had room 200. It looks a little different than in the picture on the website. It now has a brown comforter which looks kinda worn. The view is amazing!!! Totally worth the stay!! Great view of the lighthouse!! The noise level is pretty high. Our room is right off the elevator so we can hear everyone in the hall. The floor also vibrates which is weird. I assume its from our proximity to the elevator, but its difficult to fall asleep when your bed is vibrating. You can also hear your neighbor's tv. It must be up against the wall. You can walk to the lighthouse and the beach. You also get a discount to the lighthouse if you ask at the front desk for vouchers.

We have stayed at this inn for several years, and have always found the staff very helpful, willing to accommodate our needs and wishes, and always smiling. This inn is a condo hotel, each suite is individually owned, but cleaned and managed by the staff. The included breakfast has all the usual non-cooked breakfast items: cereals, juice, milk, bread and bagels to be toasted and rolls. Parking is covered, the pool is very nice, too. The local shops and good restaurants are within two blocks walk, the beach is two blocks in another direction. We will always come back here.

Very nice stay - our first time in the area. Both the inn and location in St Simons town center were nice. Variety of decorated rooms to choose to pick from online as you reserve. AAA discount too. Barbara was very pleasant and helpful when we reserved over the phone. Pool was a nice plus. We'd certainly stay there again and tell others about it too.

Room Tip: Just look online a pick the room you would like based on each rooms decor.

this was a return trip for me and again, love the location. In the middle of everything and can just walk to a bar or restaurant. Staff was great as always. Look forward to my next trip. This was my girlfriends first stay on the island and she loved it as well.

The Inn was great with a fantastic location! But what made our visit memorable was the Inn staff,every one of them was nice and worked extra to please! Tim brought all our luggage for a five night visit for two with a dog up two flights of stairs and would not even accept a tip! I booked through American Express travel and I walked in and signed and that was it. We loved this place!

Room Tip: Be aware that the pet friendly room is on the third floor which is accessible only by walking up two...

A girlfriend and I stayed 4 nights here in June in Room 112, it was perfect for us. A quaint, quiet little place in a great location for the village, walk everywhere! Right across from the Lighthouse and so many good restaurants to choose from! You can look at the room choices online which is a great idea; it was very quiet, never heard the other guests. Judy at the front desk is a fount of information, gives better directions than the GPS! Will definitely be back to stay here!

Highly recommend the St. Simons Colonial Island Trolley Tour - Rod is a perfect tour guide, lasts only 1 hour and gives you the island overview of the high spots; he knows everything about the island, and was so nice when we called him back later that day for directions! He is big on history and shared lots of info.

No shortage of great eating on the island - we tried Barbara Jeans, Brogens, Palmers, 4th of May, Frederica House, Crabdaddy's, all very good! Loved St. Simons Island, will be back in the future!

Room Tip: Look at their room choices online and pick the one you want, #106 is fabulous and #217 is their top...
