Nice Hotel would stay again

Posted Dec 30, 2016
Pros: The view was wonderful! And the staff was wonderful. The hotel offered a lot of extras. The hotel was very nice in outer appearance.
Cons: I wish they had a continental breakfast and a another restaurant on site.
Location: The location was great! We walked for miles on the beach and everything was a short drive. And it was close to Jekyll Island.
The first room was very dirty. Cobwebs, open outlets. But once this was pointed out. They quickly got us another room. Helped us to move and refunded us some of our money. They even up graded our room for no extra charge. They were so friendly and nice and very helpful! The staff was always willing to help you with anything and answer any questions and the view and the facilities were wonderful. Can't wait to go back! Would Highly recommend!

Very nice. Already planning on going back. View is gorgeous...however the one disappointment is only one elevator, so you have to wait a bit or take the stairs.

Nice hotel

Posted Oct 2, 2016
Great hotel directly on the beach. Staff is very friendly . While having live entertainment in the lobby was appreciated, the band playing your cheating heart and other honky tonk songs did not fit the elegant surroundings or set an upscale mood. It's personal preference but We were not the only ones who thought the entertainment did not match the crowd or surroundings .

a room without a view

Posted Sep 30, 2016
The room they gave us was in a cottage away from main hotel, facing a parking lot. You must pay extra to have even a partial view. The air conditioner was very loud. For the price the room we were given was not worth it. The hotel itself is beautiful with amazing amenities and the beach was a 10.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience at The King and Prince Resort. We do have many room categories ranging from standard to oceanfront. There is an ocean view category that is a bit higher in nightly room rate than the standard rooms. We apologize that the air conditioner was loud and understand that this could certainly interfere with a restful nights sleep. Thank you for your kind comments regarding the overall resort and amenities.

Paradise on the beach!

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: The restaurant was fabulous! The location was right on the beach!
My husband and I loved The King and Prince! It was right on the beach! The staff was courteous and helpful. The restaurant, Ecco, was the favorite of the 5 restaurants we tried while on St. Simons.

Looking for a Nice Spot on St. Simons

Posted Apr 24, 2016
Pros: Very close to the beach, a nice section of beach. Drinks and food were good. The staff was very courteous, helpful, and professional.
Cons: Don't know about the newer buildings, we stayed in the historic section, but our AC was a little slow responding. It got there eventually.
Location: Golf, beaching, paddle-boarding, etc. Lots of restaurant possibilities, lots of shops, day trips to other islands close-by.
My wife and I wanted to stop on St Simons on our way back to Virginia to look for a place to come back to next Fall. We looked around the Island but came to the conclusion that the King and Prince was the place to be. We will return.

great location- great for families!

Posted Apr 11, 2016
Pros: location, very nice but still relaxed, kid-friendly
Cons: I can't think of anything.
Location: The King and Prince is right on the beach SSI. Nearby trips- St Mary's ferry to Cumberland Island, Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll
This was our first visit to the King and Prince. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was in the Oceanfront building. If you have kids, that's the place to be! The pools were right outside the doors. The beach was just a few steps farther. High tide here is really high- read: almost to the pool! Low tide is pretty incredible- waaaaay far out. There are lots of sands bars, making for cool tidal pools. Saint Simons is pretty small so it's a quick ride to pretty much everything. There are lots of great restaurants on the island. But our favorite meal was at the King and Prince's restaurant ECHO. I think what I liked most about the King and Prince was the relaxed feel. It's a really nice hotel that somehow doesn't come across as stuffy and pretentious. It is very kid friendly. The staff was welcoming and helpful. We liked it so much we just booked another trip!
