Meeting room looks dated -- there's AV equipment, but no high-tech gadgetry in evidence
The 79-room, mid-range Hampton Inn St. Simons
Island is conveniently located in the center of the island, just off the main
highway. It's surrounded by plenty of dining choices for all budgets, and is within easy reach of all the major historic sites. The inn is a chain outpost with a roadside hotel
atmosphere that offers no pleasant or unpleasant surprises. Rooms are spacious
and clean, and the pool, while not huge, is larger than those found at many other chain hotels.
Relaxed vibe, outdoor pool with sun lounges, whirlpool, and DIY waffles at breakfast
The Hampton Inn St. Simons Island is a chain hotel with a few
decorative local touches that give a nod to its Georgia island location. From
the outside, the property looks like every other Hampton Inn, everywhere, but
the lobby is pleasantly cluttered with plants, flowers, bamboo framed mirrors,
and tropical prints. The turquoise walls and accents reflect the tropical
landscape outside, and the woven ceiling fans gently stir the air. The morning
breakfast buffet is served in a generic room off the lobby, with plain linoleum
floors. There is a waffle iron for self-serve waffle-making. The
swimming pool is eight feet deep in places, and large enough for some serious swimming. There are simple lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, and tables and
chairs on the deck. The outdoor whirlpool is small, surrounded by a plain
stucco wall, but is nonetheless relaxing. This hotel makes for a nice, relaxed, unfussy base of
operations for travelers on a budget who want to explore the island.
In the island's business center, surrounded by dining possibilities for all budgets, convenient to historic sites
The Hampton Inn St. Simons Island is well-located at the business
center of the island, off Highway 17, in an area filled with restaurants,
fast-food joints, and convenience stores. Historic St. Simon’s Village and the
island’s lighthouse are two miles away, and Messengale Beach is three miles
down the road. The hotel’s central location means that all the tourist sights,
including nearby Fort Frederica, are easily reached. The small island airport is a
mile away, and the Jacksonville and Savannah airports are within a 90-minute drive. There is fishing, miniature golf, scuba diving, and golf nearby.
Spacious and clean, with portable lap desks, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi
Rooms at the Hampton Inn St. Simons Island are spacious and clean,
furnished with king or queen beds with dark-wood headboards, and the added bonus
of portable lap desks for reading or working in bed. The rough stucco ceilings
and busy wall-to-wall carpeting are generic, typical chain hotel trappings, but the plantation
shutters add island atmosphere, and help travelers get a good night’s sleep.
Views are unexceptional, and mostly include the parking lot and an occasional palm tree.
Bathrooms are modern, and include toiletries and plentiful, plush towels. Connecting
rooms and cribs are available on request.
Free breakfast, fitness center, meeting room, and laundry facilities
The Hampton Inn St. Simons Island offers guests a free hot
breakfast daily, or a quick, convenient takeout breakfast during the week. There is a fitness center with several cardio
machines, a full rack of free weights, and a flat-screen TV. The business center, with a computer and printer, is open 24 hours a day, and there is a meeting room with audio visual equipment and
seating for up to 50 people. The hotel has a coin-operated laundry for guests' use, and dry-cleaning and laundry can of course be sent out.
