Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MGC713 OK but lacking in basic amenities
This is the first time in years that we've stayed in any hotel room that did not at least have a mini-fridge and/or microwave in it. We had to keep ice in a cooler to keep milk on hand for the baby. Which would have been ok, but there is only one ice machine in the entire facility (near the lobby) and it was constantly out of ice. The room was comfortable enough, but VERY dimly lit and needed updated. We've stayed here twice in the past 5 years. I don't think we'll be staying at this location for our next trip to the Island.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PShoe First Visait to St. Simons
While the hotel wasn't within walking distance to area attractions, it was convenient to everything. The room was very quiet and you didn't even realize there were other ;people there, even though the hotel appeared to be full. The breakfast bar had a lot of choices, but the hot cinnamon buns were a hit with me. We had a ;problem with the shower curtain but reported the problem the following morning and it was fixed by the time we got back to the room that afternoon. The pool is very small, but we were staying by the beach so it really wasn't an issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great room and nice pool area.
We were on our way home from picking up my grandson and wanted a nice place to stay . We love ST Simon Island and this hotel was perfect for us. The grounds were nice and the room was great. We used the pool and had a nice evening. Hotel Staff was helpful with directions and we will be back to stay longer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chigirl55 friendly, but needs work
First I would like to say that the employees were very nice and friendly. The hotel is not kept up,(damaged walls, paint touched up with different paint color) the breakfast room is not cleaned after breakfast, when to play card at night and my feet stuck to the floor. The pool area was also not taken care of weeds and landscaping not done, the pool area could use some umbrellas
the sun was very hot and I would of stayed by the pool if they had some. I have stayed at several Holiday Inn Express and this is the worst one. The rooms were clean but also needs work.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by anp1987 Luke Warm Water
The water in the hotel was luke warm everyday. We did not get a hot shower once. Plus, the shower system was weird, there was no true on/off. You just kept turning until it came on, and kept turning until it turned off. But if you turned too far, it'd to the opposite.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by steelman2 Room review
Not a very good experience. I was assigned a handicap equipped room and did not request it. Room was right next to the hotel laundry, which they started running early in the morning. Cable TV was out for most of my stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kimbeau Nice location
Nice location and overall a good value.
The breakfast was better than usual with an efficient attendant. The desk staff were not quiet as professional as most IHG locations.
I wish my room was a little larger. Cramped with 3 adults and a 4 y/o. Still a good value.
The room needed more attention to detail, eg. sagging shower curtain support, had to jiggle lamp electrical outlets. Also the rear trash was not emptied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Clean & Comfortable spacious beds
Thomas at the front desk is very personable & shared many suggestions to best enjoy our stay... Including an athletic facility in walking distance for no extra charge (great perk)! The value for price is there for quiet, clean, and comfortable room. We experienced no issues or cons and highly recommend if you want to watch your budget and still enjoy all St. Simonds Island has to offer.

Great staff and very clean rooms. As soon as an item ran out on the breakfast bar the staff immediately replenished the item. The breakfast and staff were very good.

Holiday Inn Express Saint Simons Island is conveniently located, but it is not on a heavily traveled street. It is just right if you are looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay while visiting this beautiful island.

Nice hotel, very close to a lot dining options. Not vey far of drive to public beach area and several shopping areas are not far away. Would recommend this hotel for a nice little getaway that does not break the bank. Staff was very helpful in ever area that we needed.

The Hotel's location was perfect for the conference we had at Epworth by the Sea. It was less than a mile away. Coffee and tea was available 24 hours daily which really helped. The rooms were big and the extra sink outside the bathroom helped in the morning getting ready.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jckc Happy Discovery
We needed a stop-over on a long drive from Florida to east coast. I had heard about St. Simons and picked this hotel due to name and price. Very nice place, lovely environment. We arrived around dinner time and had good recommendations for our dinner. This is a charming place, wish we could have stayed a few days. My only negative is the lobby needs some serious re-thinking. It is very small - also is the breakfast room. The person behind the desk is squeezed into a small space as well. When you walk in, it's not the HIE lobby you find in their other properties. Given the luxurious environment of its setting, it is very puzzling.

I have stayed at a Holiday Express and chose it based on price and on line reviews, it exceeded my expectations. All aspects of the reservation process and stay were efficient and painless.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bondtoo NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE
We have stayed at this property many, many times and the property has definitley slipped. The refrigerator was totally missing at check in the the front desk staff was unaware. The iron did not work, the coffee maker did not work, the shower faucet did not work, the a/c ran at one speed (on every setting) and never really seemed to cool.
The lady that does the breakfast has been there 7 years and said she thought the new owners (1 year +/-) was making progress, when actually I was telling her that from my point of view (as guest), I saw the property slip considerably. Maybe stay somewhere else while the new ownership can stop the slide and start the improvements.

Overall a good hotel to stay. Not a typical HIE, like some of the newer ones, but was good nonetheless. Food, staff, room - all were good. We had a King Exec w/refrig & microwave which made it much better. No room noise. We were at the end of the hotel, 2nd floor, above the dining area and near the elevator, but had no noise issues. Smaller pool outside, but was comfortable to swim - my 5 year liked it a lot. Overall a great experience and would return again when I am in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dollin Desperately needs an modernization
Convenience,staff,breakfast and comfortable beds are very good. Too noisy. Doors are not well insulated against sound. Bathroom was adequate but we have been spoiled by more modern HIEs. I realize this is an older facility, but plan for a major overhaul in the very near future. Mt.Pleasant,SC and Statesboro,GA. was most enjoyable. Your site is convenient and very reasonable and the staff most accomodating, but the hall noise. Please upgrade. We enjoy and appreciate HIEs.

Enjoyed our stay immensely! Location was great and allowed us to come and go with ease to visit sites and eateries. It was the weekend and families came and went, so the noise level at night interrupted sleep somewhat, our room was located by the main 2nd floor entrance. My only criticism was the quality of the pillows, they reminded me of the old pillows filled with crushed foam in the old days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Swampcritter Comfort yes; Refrigerator & microwave, no.
This hotel is off the beaten path, which is a huge plus. Very quiet inside and out. Everything was nice except that our room was missing a microwave and a refrigerator. The latter was of dire importance since we needed it for my and my daughter's medicines. We had to improvise by using a couple of trash cans with bags and filling each with ice. A huge hassle! When travelling with children, not having a fridge or microwave could be a big inconvenience. I can honestly tell you that if more of these "express" hotels don't have microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms, this will be a deal breaker for us in the future for staying at any of the IHG Express hotels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RPM14 convenient but a little gross
We have used Holiday Inn's numerous times during driving trips or vacations because of their comfort, convenience and reasonable pricing. This was the first experience where I was not as comfortable because the bathroom was definitely not cleaned thoroughly. While showering, I had found several strands of hair on the wall and curtain and the furniture had quite a bit of dust, indicating the room does not get cleaned correctly. Luckily, we had our own pillows & cases or we may not have stayed!
