Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy45 Great Hotel Great Location
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.

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.

The staff is completely disinterested in their jobs and the general manager doesn't care.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sheba1 Great room, friendly staff
Upon arrival, we determined that the television was not working properly. The front desk agent promptly checked out the tv and remedied the situation with a very minor, quick fix. The ground floor room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast selections were more than adequate. We were amazed by the pancake "machine".
Good location on the Island. Would recommend. Perfect for a weekend getaway outside of the "high season".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrWeav Just what we needed!
I had read quite a few reviews on this hotel that said negative things, so I was a little nervous. Our experience was totally positive: the room was comfortable, quiet, and clean, and the staff was helpful. We are not particularly demanding people, but we do like to have everything in order, so this two-night stay was perfect.
There are areas that I might suggest improving, like leaving the toilet doors in the lobby closed during the day so guests don't just look right into the toilets when they're walking to their rooms. Maybe this was a one-time thing, but I saw it on two different occasions, so might be a habit. But all in all, a perfect choice for our brief stay.

Ours was the most comfortable hotel stay we've had in a while: from the friendly, accommodating staff to the clean, plush rooms. I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express to all future visitors on the Island.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack6789 Front desk personnel on check-in was great.
As platinum elite members, we were acknowledged by front desk and given water and cookies. The breakfast-in-charge lady was friendly and did her job well.
As a negative, though, we did find a few live ants in our bathroom and a spider coming from the headboard.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cotton01 Staff is courteous and helpful but hotel needs some upgrades.
Overall, we were dissatisfied. We wanted a king bed which was not available and I think because we had 2 queen beds the room was very packed with furniture. The bed we slept in was not comfortable. The toilet had a leaking problem and would empty and fill up off and on during our stay. I did report that as we checked out. In fact, we checked out a day early because of these issues.
We had stayed at this hotel some time back & were very satisfied before. I realize a renovation is planned soon & hopefully, that will make a difference.
The staff was great as far as I could tell. I know some of these issues are minimal overall but you asked ... so I thought I would let you know. Thank you for asking.

Normally i never write these But...
This hotel is setup on a beautiful place and is just a poor quality. looks nice from the outside but inside looks like a poorly done renovation. The bed oh god the bed was the worst i have slept in and a HI hotel, no fridge no microwave a TV that I had to squit to see it was so small, just little inattention to those details that usually my all my holiday Inn experiences good. Now granted i used my points to have a getaway but still as a loyal platinum rewards customer I have come to expect more. The only good thing i can say is the staff that was there ( i don't remember his name unfortunately) was awesome he was pleasant helpful and even went out of his way to make sure we had some cookies to go with our wine.
My two cent recommendation management needs to stay in their own hotel see what is there and make a effort to talk to guests. They could have a bigger gold mine than they do. Just my opinion

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tucker88 Horrible, horrible mattress
While our stay was wonderful, our bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on in my life. I think I would have had a better nights rest if I had slept on the floor.
I would have rated the room and comfort higher if I had been able to have decent nights sleep.
Please get new mattresses that aren't as hard as a rock!

My hubby and I stay only one night for the famous Shrimp and Grits festival. A very nice gentlemen name Travis ensured that we had a late check out for the following day. Once we arrived Brian was very knowledgeable about the festivities happening on Jekyll Island. Both Travis and Brian was very helpful with our one day trip. We will definitely return.

I agree with most everybody else....I stay at about 40 different IHG locations per year and these beds were the worst I have seen in quite a while. The gate at the pool needed a little work--looks like someone busted it. Overall it is just average....sorta like a pair of shoes--this place needs a few repairs and a coat of polish......It would be great if IHG had a property closer to the beach or Village.....I have another trip down that way in a few weeks so I will give it another try....

Have stayed several times at this hotel and when we travel we always stay at Holiday Inn. We always feel safe at all locations. We enjoy the staff at this and all locations. Our only concern is the beds. They need to be up graded. Sorry.
