How to Get There
Check in was easy and rooms clean and quiet. Lots of free parking and in the center of the island. Not much for a bar and no restaurant. Close buy place to eat. There is a resort fee if you want to visit the other Sea Island properties on the island. Pet friendly!
1st time visiting this hotel. Seems very plain for the price they charge per night? Limited bar for drinks. No restaurant on-site. Breakfast was provided & was ok. Nice sitting area around the pool area. Pool was heated. The room itself was very plain, but it was clean.
We have stayed at the Inn and visited the Cloister and the Lodge a number of times in the past; always a great experience with great service. Not this time. First, you now have to pay more for access to the Cloister and Lodge if staying at the Inn. Second, we arrived at the Lodge in time for a pre dinner drink. Impossible to flag a server down outside so we went to the bar....and waited 15 minutes for a drink. Almost went home, and should have. Dinner was a zoo; clearly understaffed. Food was mediocre at best. I ordered a "signature" dish of veal osso bucco. Dry, and who would have thought to put sweet marscapone cheese with black beans? Weird at best. To top it all off the suggested tip percentages (for lousy service) went up to 24%! Finally, when I reviewed my visa bill, I noticed that I had been charged almost $70 more than I left for a tip. This was refunded after speaking with the Inn's accounting department but should never have been necessary. All told, not nearly as good as in years past and not nearly worthy of the praise it still gets.
This is part of the Sea Island Resort, but at a lower cost. I have stayed here several times on someone else’s dime. I find the rooms spacious, the bed comfortable, the linens and pillows awful!!! The bar and pool are are lovely. The staff is great. Everything is overpriced, but that’s to be expected.
So the hotel on its own is fine. Clean, nice rooms, friendly staff. But it’s advertised as being a part of the Cloister group, and really that’s a stretch. You can buy access to the Cloister grounds but not the beach club, and if you have kids, the beach club is about all you want access to.
Our tennis at the Cloister was cancelled over us not having ‘tennis shoes’. A boating excursion cancelled over not enough people booking.
The Inn is off property, with no sense that you are a part of the Cloister experience. The golf was great, albeit expensive.
But I would never again travel to the Inn as a destination. The likes of it can be found just about anywhere with much less of a price tag. I would either stay at the Cloister or not go back to the area at all. We stay in upper end establishments when we travel, but even for us the Cloister was a bit too stuffy. And The Inn was more like an airport hotel on the highway than being a part of an exclusive property.
It was a nice 3 days, but forgettable really.
Oh, and the breakfast is lame, out of everything with a staff that liked it that way. Get in there early or don’t bother.
