“The Only place for us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

This Bed and Breakfast Inn was awesome. We love to travel with our little dog and they had a pet friendly room with an outside fenced in area near the room. That is the first time we had seen anything like that at a bed and breakfast. Thank YOU. The owner, Lloyd, was friendly and likable and he had hired some of the BEST staff. Gary is a very creative cook and Julie was terrific as well. We felt very comfortable and at home with them and the other guests. Tybee Island has a very clean beach area and we walked everywhere we wanted to go. There is a dog park right down from the Inn which was very good for those quick walks in the chilly mornings. This is the BEST place to stay. We will be back again.

We decided to try this very well reviewed B&B with a groupon. I'll start with the pro's: 1) Garry and Julie are wonderful. They are super sweet and willing to do anything to make you comfortable. They also had great suggestions on where to go around town. 2) the location is perfect. You are within easy walking distance of the beach and the lighthouse. The island is just beautiful. 3) the inn has a wonderful charm to it. The outside is beautiful and unique.

Now the cons: 1) we decided on the Captain's Quarters which was a huge mistake. This is not a room with a lot of privacy. The bathroom has only saloon doors between it and your hallway and then another set of saloon doors without a door handle (only a sliding latch) between you and the entrance to the whole inn. Not my kind of privacy at all. You also have to go up a spiral staircase to get to the bathroom which is hazardous at best. The room is in the basement so you can hear everything in the inn. Also has many doors to nowhere which we found creepy. The bed is also very uncomfortable.
2) the food was atrocious! The first day we were served raw sausage and runny eggs. The second a clump of grits and a mushroom and spinach "quiche" that sat on almost everyone's plate at the end of breakfast. Not the kind of cooking expected when you pay almost 200 dollars a night. 3) the played music 24/7 to give you some semblance of privacy because you could hear everything, but it woke both of us up all night long. 4) there is false advertising on the website. Each room says there is a fridge and fireplace. There is a communal fridge (which is fine if you state it that way) and a heater that looks like a fire when it's on....not the same thing as a real fireplace.

All in all we were very disappointed especially after reading these wonderful reviews. Maybe if we were in a different room, but the risk of getting sick for the cooking is enough to make it so we wouldn't even consider this place again. We didn't pay full price, but I wouldn't have even payed what we did.

Room Tip: I would never suggest the Captain's Quarters and I heard the Sea Cabin is behind the kitchen and...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Tybee Island Inn. A real treasurer with beautiful surroundings. The rooms made us feel we were at home. Slept like a baby. If your in the aera this is the place to stay.

If you love a peaceful tucked away place, this is it on Tybee! The location is awesome, hidden away but close to everything! A few minute walk and you're on the beach and once on the beach a few minutes from Tybee Lighthouse which is so beautiful from the beach especially. And right around the corner from the Inn is a little park where the oaks and wildlife are abundant. Perfect way to start off any day. I loved The Flamingo Room! It has it's own private entrance, parking area (right outside the door), courtyard, rocking chairs and a swing! And it's pet friendly, if you have your four legged friend with you. Inside was very cozy and comfortable. For those who have difficulty climbing, you may want to try another room because you will have to climb a steep winding staircase to get to the private bath, which I loved, very charming! The bed was so comfortable, good sleep! And breakfast outstading and plenty of areas to enjoy it! Thanks for a perfect stay!

From the afternoon delights, cake, brownies, coffee and tea to the fabulous friendly breakfasts, we loved staying in our pet friendly room. Recomended as a great stay on a wonderful island. Walked to the beach, the lighthouse and the park.

We really liked the island and the Inn itself was nice enough, but the room was so narrow there were literally inches on either side of the queen bed and I found myself constantly fighting claustrophobia. The mattress was hard as a rock and sagged badly. On the plus side, the tub was nice. Overall not worth the money, at least not for that room. (We stayed in the Sea Room)

My husband and I spent a few wonderful days at Tybee Island Inn! We can't say enough about the accommodations, the staff, the food, and the fun at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. My husband is now a Bed & Breakfast fan so I see us coming back again and again to the Tybee Island Inn - with so many different themed rooms to chose from, we'll just have to try them all! Thanks to Lloyd, Cathy and Julie as you were a wonderful part of our Tybee Island adventure!
