Not a great place.
Started with an angry employee using harsh profanity as we entered the office. The TV, coffee pot and refrigerator were all broken. The room was fairly clean. And it was conveniently located. Not a very ling walk to the beach. Not sure I'd stay here again.

2/10 Poor

Please don’t book here!
So bad that I booked a hotel in Savannah after 1 night forfeiting the money so I didn’t have to stay. FILTHY!! Scum around the faucet was so thick there were layers. Security lock broken, curtain rod over window by door was crooked and rusting. The curtain wouldn’t cover the window due to this, so I had to pin it back with the chair that I propped in front of the door for security. Sink smelled like sewage. Mattresses are like concrete. Thought I’d tough it out for one more night- nope! I’d rather lose the money. One perk- the lady who seems to help with every job from check in- maintaining the pool was so sweet. Always creates anxiety booking on line because pics deceive and the options are so limited on Tybee. This stay confirmed every anxiety!

Tybee Beach isn’t worth the $
For the price I paid this room didn’t make the mark. Super old building, lock on the door wasn’t secure, Toilet didn’t flush, lobby was locked at 8pm with no attendant on site.

Just ok for me
The location was perfect because we went to take grandson to the beach and it was literally a 3 min walk. The hotel itself is just not worth what we paid. The walkways smelled like urine. The room was just ok but dingy looking and the bathroom wasn’t cleaned well at all. We survived a 2 night stay but I definitely couldn’t have made it another night and the bed was very uncomfortable!
