Cumberland Island Inn & Suites
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in St. Marys
Reviewed 21 February 2012

My husband and I read about Cumberland Island years ago and always wanted to go there. On a trip to Jacksonville, FL we decided to go up and spend a few days in Saint Marys, GA. before heading back to WI. We went on line and found a two day package that was offered on the Cumberland Inn and Suites website. The package included two nights at the hotel, a day trip to Cumberland Island including two round trip ferry tickets and a $40 dining credit. I assumed the $209+tax was per person but when I was told it was the package price for two people I figured there had to be a catch. The reservation staff at the hotel was very helpful as I called several times to ask the questions needed to ferret out the truth. Turns out, this is for real. The hotel was charming, clean and comfortable and the free breakfast was fantastic; the most lavish breakfast I’ve seen for a long time. We used the workout room with all the latest equipment all though we got a pretty good work out hiking on Cumberland Island the day after our arrival. There was a motorized trip we could have purchased from the ferry office but we decided to hoof it. The beaches were nothing less than breathtaking and we took some wonderful pictures of the wild horses. The only down side was the cool morning temp in Jan. but we peeled off layers as the day progressed and enjoyed the boat ride and hiking thoroughly.
We used our dining credit at the Borrell Creek Restaurant and paid our own way to eat at Lang’s Marina, another restaurant that was recommended. They were both excellent.
I hope they run this special for a while since we are planning to do this again on our next trip down south. This is such a worthwhile bargain in this economy.

Room Tip: I always like 2nd floors because they are less used and quieter.

We first went through St. Mary's a couple years ago on the way to Florida. I was totally charmed by it and intrigued by Cumberland Island. So we returned. After a little research, there really aren't many options for places to stay here, we chose Cumberland Island Inn & Suites and booked the 2 night special.

The property is older, not old, guessing maybe1970's, and the rooms have been updated not too long ago. Nothing terribly fancy but very clean and functional. The floors aren't carpeted and I've really grown to appreciate that. Don't have to wonder about what might be on the floor that you can't see, not to mention how long it's been there. Bed was comfortable, bathroom functional, again nothing special but quite adequate.

One thing to keep in mind, it's located outside the old historic waterfront area and not walking distance from it.

When looking for lodging near Cumberland Island, GA, I came across a very good deal on the Internet. It cost $200 for a 2-night stay, which also included round-trip for 2 on the ferry (you have to make separate reservations on the ferry and give them the code), and a $40 voucher for Borrell Creek restaurant (which was delicious!) right across the street. I thought it might be too good to be true - but we were pleasantly surprised! The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent - right down the street from the ferry dock and across the street from the Borrell Creek restaurant. Nothing negative to report. The room was large enough and came with a microwave and refrigerator, which is always nice to have. Breakfast was adequate - we don't eat huge breakfasts anyway.

Definitely give this place a chance if you don't have to be totally pampered and enjoy good, basic accommodations. The doors do open to the outside, but I always felt safe. The surrounding area is just fine.

Room Tip: Get a room towards the back of the property for a quieter spot.

If you want to visit the small city of St. Marys, GA for a few days, a week or more; the Cumberland Inn is the place to stay. It is off of I-95 appx. 7 miles and minutes to the Florida state line. It is convenient to the dock in the peaceful and charming City of St. Marys.

Also, there is the nearby Kings Bay Naval Sub Base. You can't get on base without proper ID, but the kids will love seeing the real-life sub coming out of the ground at the main gate.
When you're finished looking around each day, the Cumberland Inn offers you the comfortable, relaxing and peaceful environment your entire family will enjoy.

Their rates are "by the day" or if your visit will be longer, they offer "weekly rates" at a discounted rate. If you are a disabled veteran, be sure to mention that too; because they will offer a discounted rate especially for you! They have suites that will suffice the needs of any small family environment. You will be able to choose to fix dinner in your own room; or to visit the nationally named resturants up the road.

Before you make your motel reservations anywhere else, I highly recommend you contact the Cumberland Inn and Suites before you do!

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are closer to the pool / picnic area.

Nothing spectacular and nothing horrible. Breakfast was pretty weak, even for free/included continental.
