3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Jekyll Island Oceanfront Clarion Hotel
Extensive construction is underway on the Island. No clear instructions for the detour route were provided. The Lobby and banquet space was adequate; however, the lodging area is in need of extensive renovations to upgrade lodging, bathrooms in particular.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Close to the beach and very quiet
The staff was courteous. The hotel is older but they have updated everything pretty well. This is not the Ritz but you're 50 yards from the beach and the price can't be beat! We'll stay here again for sure!

Don't let the word "resort" fool you!
The hotel workers were very nice. Our door didn't lock so that was the first problem and it went down from there. The rooms felt unfinished, no refrigerators, no microwaves, beach access only at low tides and even at that you would have to crawl over barrier rocks. The ceilings were very thin so we heard pretty much every thing going on up over us. The Island was very nice and quiet, we rented bikes and rode around the Island, which was nice.
