Between deep blue water, vast stretches of sand and surf, historic buildings and one of seven remaining colonial era lighthouses, it's no wonder Conde Nast dubs Tybee Island an "idyllic getaway"; and the DeSoto Beach Hotel sits in the center of it all.

All guest rooms have microwaves, coffee makers and fridges, as well as 42-inch flat-screen TVs. Balconies and patios come standard also; however, we recommend upgrading to a Premier/Ocean Front room for private outdoor space, plus the best views of the beach.

Guests can rent beach chairs and umbrellas from the front desk or relax on the sun deck near the beachfront pool. Rainy afternoons or quiet evenings can be spent in the arcade with video games and a pool table facing the ocean. 

The hotel is less than 20 minutes from historic downtown Savannah. Tybee Island Light Station and Museum is only a mile from the hotel, while Tybee Island Marina is 2 miles away and offers dolphin tours, sunset cruises and deep sea fishing expeditions.

The lack of amenities leaves this hotel an ordinary beachside facility. Lobby was on the first level above ground and the appearance was not inviting. It was a place with a bed close to the beach

Not what we have come to expect for a hotel on travelzoo. Hotel was old and falling apart. Would not recommend.

Hotel was nicer than I thought it would be. Great location for a small place. Would be great in the summer and when the beach repairs are done.

The city was doing beach reclamation right in front of this hotel. Staff did not explain during booking or during check in. We were awake all night and moved the next morning to another part of the island. The beach was closed and there were bulldozers running 24 hours a day. Loud, and they ser up lights at night. Staff said nothing, and checked us in to a beach front room. We did not sleep all night.

Away from the main part of Tybee Island which is nice but also slightly less convenient if you like to walk places.

The beach was great, the room was large and very tastefully &recently refurbished. We loved the balcony.

The beach is steps from away from the hotel! It’s also very nice to both the beach & pool options. The rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable. The hotel is about 1 mike from the Pier which makes for less traffic and noise at the beach.

We were in room 301 and complained with no resolution to the lack of a wifi signal getting to our room. We could get wifi in the hall but not in the room with any level of success. Also, the beach is not as nice in this area as it is South because the sand there has small pieces of sea shells in it which hurt to walk on
