I've stayed multiple times. This last time was a nightmare. Grease was still splattered on the wall behind the stove, kinda reminded me of vomited at first sight. There were bugs in the restroom. The Livingroom lamp has a short some where in the electric. This was by far the worst room ever booked on Jekyll Island.

We are sorry to learn of your experience. We would have gladly corrected our mistake and found you another room if we had known of the issue. Your experience is not a typical one and we are extremely sorry.

The pictures posted here on Travelocity are not what you get. There is NO DIRECT BEACH ACCESS. Our unit was extremely dated and the bathroom was gross. The pool is small and surrounded by trees which doesn’t allow sun in. Jekyll island is beautiful but I would stay elsewhere in the future.

Thanks for staying with us. We do have direct beach access. We apologize that you could not find it. Our pool is larger than most pools and it is partially shaded by beautiful oak trees.

Next to the ocean, decent pool, lots of trees. Easy access to bike trails and driftwood beach.

The staff member who checked me in was very rude. It set the tone for our stay and things just weren't right. We go to Jekyll every year and love it. This was our first time staying here and it will be the last.

Nice Facility

The suite was exactly what we were looking for. It was plenty of room for the two of us. I had plenty of room to cook. The room was slightly dated, but that probably wouldn’t stop me from going again. The pool was very nice and the facility was nice also. My only thing is that you couldn’t go in the beach from the hotels beach access. You do have to drive down to the park to get to the beach. But all and all, it was a good value.

Not bad

Stayed when a family reunion was taking place, those guest were loud and stayed loud from the time they got there until they left. The staff on site did not do anything to try and get them to turn their music down or keep them quiet so other could enjoy themselves. The air conditioning in the room was programmed so you could not turn it down below 70 degrees.
