This could be up there with the worst experience of my life. Took a trip to Tybee from the Midwest and landed in hell. First, the rate changed almost every day I was there. They gave different reasons for this.
Next I get in the hot room and the AC does not work THE INTERNET DOES NOT WORK EITHER.... they told me to use the code from the hotel across the street for internet access....(are you kidding me?) Finally they give me another room. FILTHY.... at this point I am stuck and available hotels are booked so I could drive all the way back home or try to make the best of it.
Left to shop in Savannah only to come back to NO PARKING PLACE...they told me to park on the dark side street....sure, a woman alone will do that right? I parked right in the front door and told them I would move my car when they found me a place to park or it would STAY THERE COVERING THE DOOR ALL NIGHT...... a kid ran out and finally found me a place to park in this tiny awkward parking lot. Oh...the pool....don't ask.
This nightmare went on for 3 days. Finally the day I was to check out I got up early. Went to the office for a cup of coffee. I was told NO....because they didn't put on a pot of coffee until 7am. I said I will make the coffee....NO....you can not. $200.00 a night and I can't have a cup of coffee???? ($200 a night...now this may vary as they change the price while you are there)
The front desk help boys were beyond rude. It's filthy. Don't ask for coffee. Don't try to park your car ever again if you leave the lot. Don't try to use the internet...they use the code from the place across the street. Don't ask for towels. In fact don't ask for anything and all for the low low price of.....who knows....they seem to change the rate every day.
You would have to be absolutely desperate to stay here. I would sleep in my car before I would ever go to this place again....and....its NOT on the beach. I will say this, the people in Tybee were nice and the beach was beautiful. I took a second trip back to Tybee later in August and stayed elsewhere and loved it. Thank goodness I didn't let this nightmare ruin Tybee for me. I love the Island and the beach.
We are going back in July this year. We have another place to stay.
