The St. Simons Lighthouse and several restaurants are near this hotel as well. After a day at the beach or exploring the island, families can hang out by the outdoor pool. The kids can play and swim, while the adults can lounge and relax on the surrounding pool deck chairs. The 61 exterior guestrooms and suites feature a king or two queen beds, flat screen television and complimentary Wi-FI access so both kids and adults can stay connected to home and work. The spacious suites also feature a sleeper sofa. Cribs are available upon request.

Best Western told us the $200 we paid for this Best Western Plus room was the best price available, but when we typed the address in, Google offered us a promotion for just $130. We had no choice so we took the room. Part of the reason we chose the place was for the pool, but the water was freezing cold and the pool was full of leaves. To top it off, our room faced a baseball stadium the played very loud noisy music all day and until 9:30 pm at night.
There are a few cutesy touches to the room, but really more minuses than pluses.
Seems Best Western is offering an upgraded motel experience. Small room with King bed, worked for us. Nice Citrus toiletries including shampoo and conditioner. Lovely room for included hot breakfast. Scrambled eggs, waffles and choice of cereals and breads. The pool area looked very nice too.
