Village Inn and Pub
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2014

This was my third visit to the island and each time, we have stayed at the village inn and pub. This time we brought friends from NC and we gave them our favorite room, number 202. They loved it and we opted for the deluxe king, number 214. It was great and so quiet, just a short walk for coffee in the AM and happy hour starts at 5 PM. Very reasonable prices and if you are staying there, just add it to your room rate. Don't forget tips for great service that is gladly rendered.

Room Tip: Always get a room on the backside that overlooks the pool area!

Went here for a sister/mom visit for just one night! What a great find!
The Inn is so close to shops and restaurants you don't have to get in the car and drive if you don't want. The Inn is charming and friendly! The rooms are spacious and well appointed! The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in in any hotel!
We loved the cozy pub where the fireplace was kept burning all day and into the evening. RB, the bartender is a perfect host and mixmaster and helped us decide where to eat and what we should see while in the area. This was a Thursday night and they had a 1-Man band playing great dance music. We danced among ourselves and some of the friendly locals. I will definitely stay here again for my next visit. If you have any trouble with stairs request a room on the first floor as there are no elevators.

We debated whether to stay here because there are many fine B&Bs and boutique hotels on St. Simons. We feel we really lucked out. Great service at front desk, nicely appointed room, very clean, free internet and a lovely pub on first floor. Very close to village area which is good for shopping and great dining.

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be quiet and centered around the outdoor pool. Music is available at the pub on T...

Our third visit to the Village Inn - this time with two other couples for a January birthday weekend (5 of the 6). As before, the rooms are not big, but they are comfortable and clean. We love the pub as a place to sit and talk with our friends (and meet new ones) while having a drink. The location is great since it means that you really don't have to drive anywhere to have a meal and do some shopping or sightseeing.

The pub is a fun place, with live music on some nights and happy hours every day. The breakfast each morning is fine - not world class, but very reasonable for the price and other benefits.

Property located within walking distance of village and found room very clean and comfortable. The value was also appreciated. There just 1 night but would come back for a longer stay. Front desk very helpful and friendly. Got a goods night rest after a long day of traveling. Would highly recommend to anyone in area.

As we travelled with our dog, we had to stay in the "Retreat". It seems that inn owners think that dog owners live in a dump and only have messy pets so they can get the old and not so fantastic rooms.
I do not know what the Southern Living and Co. guys rated but certainly not our room. It was far from being comfortable and very plain and basic and made a rather old impression. If you like the old Motel style, then this is the place for you. We were happy to leave after 4 nights... which is a shame as the Golden Isles are a fantastic place.
Breakfast was okay, nothing special.
I do not know what the rooms in the inn are like but I would certainly never book the Retreat again

Room Tip: NOT the retreat rooms

VIPGuestRelations, Director of Sales at Village Inn and Pub, responded to this reviewResponded 31 October 2013

We apologize that you found Village Retreat less than satisfactory. Pet Friendly rooms are limited on the Island, so we wanted to offer our overflow property as a pet friendly option. Normally, our staff informs the guest during the time of reservation that Village Retreat is our overflow, pet friendly property and not as upscale as the rooms at the Inn itself. We also suggest that they look at the rooms titled Village Retreat on our website. I apologize if this protocol did not happen with your reservation.
We hope that if you are ever traveling Pet Free to please stay with us at the Inn.

Thank You,
Management
