This budget property has a motel-style structure,
with an 80s-era decor manifest from the lobby to the plain rooms -- most of which
retain bedspreads and colors that seem not to have changed for decades.
However, guests have reported the rooms to be clean with comfortable beds. Many are also satisfied by the easy beach access, swimming pools,
and continental breakfast. The hotel is situated towards the southeastern tip of Jekyll
Island and enjoys a peaceful location off Beach View Drive.
80s-style decor throughout the two-floor buildings of a casual hotel
The decor at this Days Inn seems to have hardly budged from the 80s. The lobby, accessed through a covered pull-up driveway, is carpeted with mint-green patterns and has drop-ceilings with fluorescent panel lighting along with walls covered in a hand-painted mural of the beach. Families and couples seeking a slightly less expensive stay on the island flock here, and the vibe throughout the property is casual. Rooms are housed in long, two-story, motel-like buildings joined by outdoor concrete paths. There’s only one elevator that serves half the hotel; the other side requires stairs, or else making one’s way from the elevator through the breakfast area and a meeting space.
Surrounded by trees and dunes toward the southeastern tip of the island
The hotel is surrounded by woods, dunes,
and the ocean, and is located off the main road on the island, which is
nonetheless narrow and doesn’t generate much traffic or a lot of noise. Outside
of a couple of other property developments, there’s little immediately
surrounding the hotel besides nature. Guests wanting stores or restaurants will
need to drive a couple of miles away. Bike paths also abound in the vicinity
and a boardwalk leads from the hotel’s grounds to the sandy beach. Jacksonville
International Airport is about an hour south by car.
Tiled drop ceilings and decor that looks decades old, but clean
Rooms are plain with blue drapes and dated ocean-themed blue
bedspreads, which most guests report are clean, if worn around the edges. The
furniture here is wicker or laminate wood, and all rooms have microwaves,
coffeemakers, and mini-fridges. Larger rooms have kitchenettes with two-burner
electric ranges, toasters, and basic cooking implements as well as separate
living areas with pullout couches. All rooms also have balconies, some of which
have ocean views, with tables and chairs. Bathrooms have plastic shower/tub
combos, and some rooms have sinks in the sleeping areas. Guests have
reported that during the day the air-conditioning struggles to cool spaces because
of poor insulation.
Two outdoor pools, some meeting space, and rentals for beach chairs and bikes
for beach chairs, bikes, umbrellas, kayaks, and paddleboards are all available
in the hotel parking lot, right before the boardwalk to the sand. Upstairs from
the lobby, there’s a small sitting area for the free continental breakfast, but no restaurant. Other property amenities
include a limited amount of meeting space, a computer terminal and printer for
guest use, side-by-side outdoor pools with an adjacent fire pit, and coin-operated laundry service. Freebies include Wi-Fi and parking.
