This is a great location but our last stay last year and a recent stay in June 2022 the property is not being taken care of. The rooms are not all the way clean. Apparently no one check on rooms after the maids clean room to make sure they are done right. Stains in carpet, mold on shower wall

Hotel's Favourite
AMAZING STAY! My husband and I and our 90-year-old mom were so fortunate to enjoy an extended stay at this amazing resort, and we were so well cared for by the entire staff. We honestly felt like it was our home, and they were our family. We really would not want to stay anywhere else on the island other than the Holiday Inn Resort. Everything about it was perfect. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would! It was also a priceless gift for our 90-year-old mom. After 2 years of being shut-in due to the pandemic, She was very apprehensive about taking the long trip. But 15 minutes after she arrived in her room she reported she had arrived in paradise! She got outside each day and walked along the resort paths, and enjoyed sitting on the Adirondack chairs and watching the people and bikers go by. It was like she was 10 years younger when she left. As for the staff, we can't thank them all enough and let them know that their very hard work makes a big difference in the lives of others! I was in the hotel business for many years, and I understand firsthand that is’ grueling hard work, and sometimes (many times) guests remember to complain, but do not remember to say THANK YOU!!!! So please know that you are indeed very appreciated!!!!!

We brought our family here for our grandson's first beach trip. The location of this hotel is fantastic. We want to specifically point out one of the front desk staff that made our stay even better... Thank you Jonesy for all of your help. Your help, courtesy and suggestions made our trip go so smoothly that we decided to stay an extra day!!! Without your help we wouldn't have booked the extra night!!

One night stay. I am a platinum member. I emailed and asked for an upgrade and it was done on the app but told not available at check in. The hotel didn’t seem full at all. Very slow as matter of fact. Broken locks, loose toilet seat , rust stained tub, broken stopper, and no offer of bottled water we had to buy it. Emailed the welcome points after check in. The tiki bar was decent but out of everything! Pool was full of loud rude people that didn’t care about anyone else. My wife went to the third floor and asked about breakfast and was told it wasn’t offered but able to find a muffin and a pop tart. Beach is nice but $390 a night ! Ouch! I did email the hotel about the issues after checking out but no response. Going downhill fast! VRBO is the way to go.

This place is terrific in every way. Location and staff are the best. Oceanfront rooms that are plenty large enough. Restaurant within walking distance. Beach is beautiful. Island has multiple amenities. Very highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in a room, as a family of 4 with a small dog. The reasons we chose this property is because they are pet friendly, and the beach is so close. We did pay close to 500/night because it was a holiday weekend. Also, the pictures of the pool on the website looked wonderful. We got a room on the 2nd floor, and it was pretty clean and roomy enough for our queen sized air mattress for one of the kids, to go along with the 2 queen beds. I would rate the mattresses a 6/10. Not the most comfortable, but not the worst, either. The grounds of the hotel are lovely, with the Adirondack chairs and the fire pit. We had brought a s’mores kit with us, but the fire pit close to us was inoperable due to no fuel or something. The swimming pool is much smaller than it appears in the pictures, and it was very crowded due to the hotel being at full capacity. I did question the cleanliness of it because the water was so murky. We did not use the pool for this reason. It was nice having the beach right there and I felt comfortable to let my teen daughter go down there by herself. It was not too crowded and mostly families there, so felt safe. We ate at the restaurant a few times, but only breakfast for 2 of us was included in our stay. It’s a small buffet and not really worth 20.00 dollars a person for breakfast. The front desk people were friendly and helpful when we realized one of the kids forgot their toothbrush and they provided one for her. It was a pretty good location to stay, and proximity to St Simons and Brunswick was good. We would stay there again, but not for the price we paid and only if the pool was clean.

Someone in my family was working on The Color Purple. We went down for a night, the room was comfortable, but as noted from other reviews, it is dated. I went to the desk to book a room for the following weekend, I was $469.00 a night. I couldn't believe it. If I am going to spend that kind of money, I will stay somewhere really nice. Be warned.

I can’t rave on this place enough. We absolutely LOVED it here. The rooms were super nice. The beds felt like heaven and those PILLOWS 😍 Every single person we met and every member of staff we interacted with were exceedingly kind and sweet. The pool was super nice as was the hot tub after spending all day on Cumberland Island. We brought our two dogs with us and we’re extremely impressed with how truly pet friendly this place was. Not only were our dogs allowed in the room but they were allowed literally everywhere. The beach was pet friendly, the grounds were pet friendly, even the poolside bar/grill was pet friendly (and even had water bowls installed for your pet to use). Overall I highly recommend staying here. It’s beautiful, the people are lovely, and our family had one of the best vacations we’ve had in a long time.

We come to Jekyll annually for a conference. We normally stay closer to the Convention Center at one of several nice, newer hotels or rent a house. This year we were late booking and Holiday Inn was all that was available. I had stayed here 15+ years ago and to my surprise, everything was pretty much the same except maybe a coat of paint and carpet. And my advice from a well traveled person….replace your rusty lamps and dirty stained lampshades. Beach access and proximity is great, undeniable! The pool and outdoor areas are well manicured and great for families. We grabbed a good burger and fries at the poolside grill, The Anchor. Also had complimentary coffee every morning on the 3rd floor area. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, beds we’re comfortable, rooms are very good size. Plenty of parking. But, the bugs! Oh my! I understand with 2 exterior doors bugs can be an issue. But, the bugs, big bugs, every day. And, our last night there were guest who decided to have a party around 1:30am, starting in the parking lot, then the common areas near the pool. Finally around 2:30am we phoned the front desk who must have quickly addressed the issue. So, would I stay here again? Maybe, if nothing else was available.

The hotel decor is dated, but the room was clean and the front desk staff were great. Our first floor room was spacious and had a small concrete patio with a view of the ocean. Outdoor pool was nice and best of all was the location. Easy access to the walking and biking trails, Would stay here again.
