Shipwatch Review

Posted May 2, 2015 on Hotels
Good location, hotel is pretty well kept up. Woman (Ashley) in the check in office was very helpful and knowledgeable. Room - bathroom needs to be updated. Rug in the living area is dangerous - slips on the tile. Kitchen is well equipped.

Family Spring Break

Posted Apr 28, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed as a family of 4 with 2 children. Our rental was well decorated and very spacious. Was a gated community which we liked. Several rowdy teens (around 15) showed up and were loud and very obnoxious. The grills were not able to be used, which messed us up because we planned to grill for our daughters bday while we were there. We had other family members check in a day after us. There wasn't a lot for our pre-teen daughters to do. Most of the residents were older retired folks, but we still managed to enjoy our stay. We will definitely choose this place again!

condo off the beach

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Convenient to beach and activities, nicely maintained. Nice clean swimming pool.
Cons: Guests could use reserved covered parking for unit?
Condo community was older but taken care of. The unit itself was tired looking and overly decorated. When heat turned on, it smelled.

quiet but not fancy.

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Cons: the room appears as though it hasn't been updated since the 1980's so it needs to have everything ripped out and remodeled.
Location: the property is right down the road from restaurants and stores, there is a paved path right behind our property to go onto the beach, which is nice.
Our room was clean, the property was quiet but the room was dated and needs to be remodeled and bought up to date.

not impressed

the location is nice, but the rooms were old and dated. That is itself is not a problem, but when there are mechanical problems with key things like the AC, that needs attention before it inconveniences guests.

When we arrived we were met by 6 cats outside the office the office area was unkept and had a foul smell. The room we were to stay in was about the same.we were moved to The beach view.This was a very nice building the office clerk was very nice..The condo was excellent .I am not trying to be rude but The Shipwatch needs a make over.We appreciated your willingness to move us. We hope to return next year we loved St Simon Thank you

Perfect for our family

Posted Sep 30, 2014 on Hotels
The condo at Shipwatch was a perfect place for our family. The location to the beach and having 2 bedrooms was exactly what our short trip needed. The building and grounds where very nice and the condo was clean and nicely decorated. My one issue was the noise from the upstairs neighbor. It sounded like they were moving furniture all through the night. Luckily, the kids were so tired that it didnt wake them. But I heard it many times during the night. We would stay here again but might request a higher floor.
