The hotel staff couldn't have made my stay any better if they tried. The Jekyll Oceanfront was more than accommodating and even though it is under renovation the grounds were beautifully kept and wonderful to look at. As part of a large group, you always expect something to go wrong but nothing did, everything was well planned and the service was exceptional. I can't wait for next year and my reservations are already booked. Thanks for a wonderful week.

Don't be fooled by photos online at Jekyll Oceanfront Clarion Resort!
It looks great in the pictures they show online. But the room they put my family and I in was horrific. It was very old out of date, smelled bad, wall paper falling down, with push pins holding it up. Kitchen was not supplied. The TV was from the 60's I think. Everything was stained and rusty. I was devastated, this was nowhere near what they show at there home site.
When I complained, they took $50 off per night. I was still paying premium dollar for a dump. The next day I found out that a large group was leaving. I inquired about an other room. The manager assured me she would get me a renovated room, to enjoy my day they call me later when it was ready.
After 5 o'clock when I had not herd back from the front desk, I called and told there were no other rooms available. When I said they needed to find me one quick, I was then shown another room only slight better.
This room had busted tile in the shower and rusty stove and refrigerator. The carpet and curtain were patched and ragged. But at least it didn't smell bad. They again discounted my room charge. I stilled paid $130 per night, outrageous in my opinion for the condition of the room.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice quiet getaway place and we found the Jekyll Oceanfront Resort on Jekyll Island. This is the most relaxing and friendly place we have been to in a very long time. We got an oceanfront room, which was decorated very nice and actually slept with the door open so that we could hear the ocean.........how much more relaxing can you get than that. The people that work there were the best we have ever encountered. They were very friendly and went out of their way to help with anything we requested. We will definitely go back again. I think we found our getaway haven!
 

Top Local Tips for Jekyll Island

There is not much to do. You are much better off driving the extra distance and spending the extra money to go to Florida. There is not much in the area even outside the island. The hotels on the island are junky and the area is overrated.

Latutude 31 Great dinner at Latitude 31

Driftwood Beach It is a must. It is beautiful beyond words. You cannot miss this one.
