It is in a good location, and price was right. Room was clean, no frills, so don't expect a lot of extras. Room had a fridge that worked great and a coffee maker. That is all we needed. Staff was friendly and pool was clean.

This was pretty much what I expected from reviews and what I knew about Tybee. I'm not one to spend a fortune staying there, once it gets a certain price level I stay towards I-95 and make the drive over. This motel was no frills though. The bed was hard, the carpet rough, bathroom small. It made do for what we wanted, sleeping. The clientele are lower end, you get what you pay for, no offense. Lesson learned. It's close to IGA, you gotta walk over hwy 80 2 blks to beach and once your parked stay and take the Tybee shuttles that are plentiful. Staff was always very nice. There's always that second guess stay, this was the one, noones fault but ours.

This was a good place to stay for a couple of nights. The room & pool were very clean; staff was very nice & helpful. The beds are not the most comfortable, but still ok for the price. The parking is very tight if you have a medium/large SUV, we couldn't fit our vehicle in our parking spot when we came in one night, but thankfully were able to park at the end of the pool.

the rooms are very small for the price. dont drive anything bigger than a midsize or small as there is much parking space.and dont expect to get up like a jack in the box as the beds were so hard i wasnt sure if i was sleeping on a rock or bed. for the price, go to the Hojo.

Yeah, it's dated, but a great spot to have an inexpensive getaway.
I would stay here again and again. Clean, cheap, and such a great location. You can walk to the
beach in three minutes and the grocery store in five minute. You can't beat that.

Tybee Forever!

If you want to step back in time to a circa 1960's little funky place only a block from the beach, this is your place, ( cheapest I could find, too-on a hoiday week- we even got a free small upgrade- an extra twin bed which made us even more comfy!),, We stayed here when our kids were little so it holds some sentimental value for me- i was SO happy that they just upgraded their BEDS and they are VERY comfortable- ( much better than before)...The room was also VERY clean- and we were, overall very happy with our experience...The next time we are in Tybee, I am sure we will stay at the Royal Palm:)
