The historic Tybee Island property was built in 1939 by a local businessman as the area’s most lavish hotel. Its construction saved the town by employing citizens who otherwise could not afford to stay during the Great Depression. Offering unheard-of luxuries for its time, such as air conditioning and en suite bathrooms, Tybee Island’s only oceanfront hotel catered to elite clientele from Savannah and all over the South. The postwar years made the property accessible to a larger crowd, and it quickly became the social hub of the island.

In December 2015, the hotel’s 37 guest rooms were fully renovated and furnished with king beds, pullout sofas and flat-screen TVs. Each room includes a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker, as well as either a private balcony or patio; many rooms include direct views of the ocean. Families can spread out comfortably by upgrading to two-bedroom units accommodating as many as eight people. All stays include complimentary Wi-Fi and continental breakfast.

The Army Corps of Engineers recently reinforced the sand on Tybee Island’s beaches, including the 300-foot stretch belonging to this hotel. 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.
