Overview

Italianate-style boutique stay in Georgia’s Golden Isles featuring a stunning rooftop terrace with Atlantic views

The Lowdown

The decor might strive for a luxe European vibe–brocade furnishings, gilded mirrors, ornate friezes, pastoral oil paintings–but the large one-bedroom suites with their generous bathrooms offer space on a scale that can be difficult to find on the continent. Head to the Rooftop restaurant and lounge to nosh on down-home favorites like fried green tomatoes, okra and Cajun pork chops, all served with a side of inspiring Atlantic views. Masseuses can make suite calls for pampering treatments on your own private verandah.

In the Area

Georgia’s so-called “Golden Isles,” located off the coast midway between Savannah and Jacksonville, offer year-round balmy weather and a wealth of biodiversity, from marshy wetlands to rivers and the mighty Atlantic ocean. St. Simon’s is the largest barrier island of the group, exuding the kind of Spanish moss-draped romance that Southern dreams are made of. Walk the 129 steps to the top of the Lighthouse Museum, devoted to the island’s 1872 maritime icon, then take a boat tour to spot dolphins and explore the scenic waterways before chowing down on authentic barbecue at Southern Soul, a retro joint specializing in rib-sticking specialties like beef brisket, pulled pork, and cornbread.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Ocean Lodge and had the most memorable anniversary celebration to date. Jackie did an excellent job accommodating our needs and making our experience extremely special. The room was amazing, the parking was easily accessible and secure and the location near the beach was breathtaking. We enjoyed having breakfast on the patio and the lady that waited on us made us feel right at home. We cannot wait to return. Thank you, Jackie, for making our stay at Ocean Lodge exceptional!

Excellent Location!

2 short blocks from Village and Pier, across the street from Lighthouse and Museum, next door to welcome center. Friendly staff, good parking( Autos in deck, Trucks outdoor lot). Hotel is clean, has refrigerator, microwave, but no coffee maker? Coffee in lobby at 6:45-7:00am (Bummer) Breakfast is package Danish, but great breakfast are a short walk( Sandcastle And Palmer both excellent). Overall this is very good Hotel with great location.

Wonderful, but ...

We absolutely love the place, the rooms, the location and the facilities and we are repeat visitors. My problem is with the new off-site reservation staff installed by new ownership ... I paid extra, in advance, for four nights in a specific room with a view but when I arrived they had decided to give the room to someone else who asked for it after I did. The staff (Jackie) was great, apologizing, getting me a pretty good room and refunding the price difference, sending a drink to the room, etc. But I didn't get the room I asked and paid for. Otherwise, the place is beautiful, highly recommendable. New management has also cut back on breakfasts, but Gloria serves up coffee, cereal and pastries with a big smile that will brighten your day.

A beautiful hotel. Rooms are very clean, beds and pillows comfortable, decor lovely, staff very helpful. My favorite part was sitting on the balcony and listening to the surf. Will come back as often as possible.
