Amazing location, kinda gross hotel.

First let me say the good stuff: Jekyll Island is beautiful. It really is. It's the kind of place I love - sparsely populated, stunning scenery and amazing beaches. This hotel is right on the beach. You really can't get any closer unless you rented a house that was basically on the beach. The staff was very nice. And the rooms were relatively cheap. The bad news: the room was pretty gross. Not totally disgusting, but really rundown. I don't mind no-frills, but this was what I would imagine those lame hotels that fill up for spring break on Panama Beach are like. The bathroom was not cleaned well. And, upon leaving, whilst doing a last minute check for left-behind items, I found an old pair of a former guest's underwear under the bed. Yes. Kinda gross, right? Upon entering the lobby, there was a sign up that said that this particular hotel was to soon be taken over by Holiday Inn. So I supposed that in the interim, things are getting very sloppy. I am sure there are people most possibly going to lose their jobs so they are not working hard. Unfortunately this is happening now while we were on vacation. This all being said, Jekyll Island is amazing. Amazing enough that it made our stay in this less-than-average room worth it.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Jekyll Island, despite its immense beauty, is not known for very good food. As an avid seafood eater, you would think that it would be paradise for the shellfish junkie. It's just ok. Most places are bland and below average. The only places that were really good are all in the same area. Latitude 31 and it's attached bar called The Rah Bar are highly recommended. Latitude 31 is a slightly upscale seafood restaurant with amazing views of the water. The staff was very friendly and the food was really good. The Rah Bar outside is right on the water and specializes in eat-with-your-hands low country seafood boils. Very good. And the staff is also very friendly. Like most southeastern towns, the drinks are super-sweet. If you're into that, you'll get drunk quickly. In the same area is the historic Jekyll Island Club Hotel. It is quite amazing. There is a dining room inside that is very upscale and expensive (men are required to wear jackets and/or collared shirts at dinner). The food is heavy and rich - it's based on the same type of food that they served the millionaires who had this place built. Good, but not great. Not really worth the money. Staff was super nice and attentive.

Best vacation we have had yet!

The hotel is not a luxury hotel. But it was still the best vacation we have had. We took our three kids the youngest being only 9 months and we had everything we needed. The are very nice and the hotel is right on the beach. We stayed on 4 of July weekend and it was packed buyer were never disturbed by noise or any one out of hand. We will be staying again!!!

Great trip!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Oceanside Inn and Suites. Clean room, great staff, and a wonderful location on the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Okay, just for us

We had a great time on our trip to Jekyll! The only problem was, the walls are paper thin, & we could hear the couple beside us arguing almost every night. Not ideal for your honeymoon getaway! But overall, a nice place to stay. We were right on the beach & had access to a hot tub & heated pool, (which we only used once since we were in fact at the beach!) & took advantage of the closeness to go walking on the beach at night. We even saw a wild loggerhead seat turtle one night! Great place for just the 2 of us, but I wouldn't take my 10 month old there, simply because of the noise that filters in through the walls.

More Issues

Got my VISA bill today. Another 40 bucks charged by Oceanside Inn. When I asked why they said it was a resort fee. No where in Orb. could I find this and I was not informed that my card was going to be charged when I checked out a day early. Oceanside tried to say it was charged by Orb. but the statement clearly shows it was charged by them. If you didn't see the last review, it was terrible. Collage party day and night. Forget sleeping if you go there. AC didn't work. WYFI? your better off walking to your internet destination.

If you like all night screaming and parting you will like your stay there. No need to drive to a party, it will come to you.

Ok

Didn't mean to stay here. Mean to stay on St. Simons. Was mislead by the fact that it has nearly the same name as where we meant to stay on SS and is also on Beach view Drive. Hotel is fine for the money. Staff was very courteous and eager to resolve the problem when our room key didn't work.

Great for just staying in the sun

We were expecting fun and adventure, but unless you're into museums, and riding a bike, there's not much else to do but enjoy the beach. We went in early May, so the water was a bit chilly, but the hotel was a typical 2-star hotel. When we arrived they told us that we had been given an upgraded room from what we ordered, so that was nice. I wish I was told that there were not free continental breakfasts and that there was an added daily "resort" fee. Not to mention there is a fee just to get on the island. When we needed help, they were quick to help. For example, our toilet was clogged and not flushing and they quickly fixed the problem.

There aren't many places to eat on Jekyll Island, so be prepared to cook your own food or drive to Brunswick (the nearest town).

Never Going Back

Worst room I have ever had. AC did not work, door jam was beat up and would not leave anything of value in the room. This and other Motels on the Island welcome a lot of Frat party's that go on all day and night without any intervention from the Georgia State Troopers or Motel staff. Seems this is what they cater to so they can have it. My third time on the Island will be the last. Do not waste your vacation time going there.

Potential

Cons: 1. My wife was 7 months pregnant - we asked for a couple extra pillows for support - they said they didn't have any. Are you kidding me!?!? 2. Cleaning lady was on her cell phone every time we saw her. 3. Cable was weak, HD television set but no HD programming - nor the ability to rent movies. 4. Poor check in time - 4 PM Pros: 1. Location! Right on the Atlantic. IGA next door for groceries. 2. Good restaurant. 3. Refrigerator and microwave in room. I would stay there again, but I would get a second floor suite - that would get you a private balcony and help to avoid sand crabs getting into your room from the cleaning lady leaving the door open. I would've went with 3 stars if they would've given us pillows. 4 stars if it was a little bit cleaner. Place has a lot of potential.

Take the Historic District Trolly Tour right away. It will give you a good appreciation for the island and its history as well as show you around a little bit.
