Very nice Motel close to the beach. Only 4 minutes walk. Staff is friendly. We arrived very early and got a parking tag. We spend several hours at the beautiful beach. For sure this hotel isn't a Ritz-Carlton but everybody can decide how much money they want to spend. For sure we will come back.

The location was great! Not far from the beach and shops. I read reviews before going and noticed that some said the rooms were cleaned daily. I stayed two nights and my room was not cleaned following the first night. My trash was full and towels needed to be replaced. Called the front desk and was told room service would...

This is not the Ritz but it is a good hotel that is located within a 5 minute walk to the beach and pier. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff was terrific. It is one of the older hotels in Tybee but has undergone major upgrades. It is a comfortable place to stay and it's...

I have to go along with majority of the other reviewers about this place, very outdated, like stepping back to the 1970s. The room had a musty smell, so bad went straight out and bought some Freebreeze, maybe this is caused by the close proximity to the beach, I don't know. Room amenties were up to scratch, Microwave, fridge, TV,...

We stopped here after getting to the hotel where I had made reservations in advance and being told that they had no rooms. Blair helped us out by getting us checked in quick. We had a very nice room sms a nice 2 night stay. They offer a continental breakfast which isn't much. There is free WiFi but it's very...

We've taken 3 previous family vacations to Tybee and have stayed here all 3 times several years apart they've always been very courteous and nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and hotel is very close to beach and pier and within walking distance to all the shops and more. We love it

We were there the night of November 12, 2016... We usually spend every other weekend on Tybee after Halloween in the fall and winter, and are quite familiar with the hotel availability on Tybee however Hurricane Matthew had impacted hotel availability somewhat this fall.......This trip was a spur of the moment decision, this was the only hotel/motel on Tybee that...

Only positive--it's on the ocean. Better off staying in your car--this is the filthiest motel I've seen in 40+ years. Surprised the health department doesn't get interested. Maybe they will when I alert them.

The room was definitely not up to par... smoke detector was hanging off the wall by the wires we went to the beach and came back to are non-smoking room being filled with marijuana smoke and when we called the front desk they said there's nothing they can do for us... I mentioned leaving and going to another hotel instead...

We are staying at the hotel, and I went down to the front office to inquire about a local seafood restaurant tonight. The clerk was dealing with a very inebriated man who would not listen and became very rude,loud and aggressive. I was going to tell my wife to go back to the car, but Melinda handled the situation very...
