Quality Inn and Suites may be a jewel in the rough for budget-minded, economy-weary travelers seeking cheap hotel deals for their family vacation.
As Jekyll Island hotels go, the Quality Inn at first seems to be operating at a disadvantage. It's not on the ocean, like all the other Jekyll Island Ga hotels except for the Jekyll Island Club Hotel - and that top-notch lodging facility is located on the Intra-coastal Waterway within the Historic District.
It's an older facility, though it's been renovated within the past five years or so.
But it does have some good things going for it.
The facility could be considered an extended stay hotel, as it rents accommodations on a daily, weekly, and even monthly basis.
Its guest rooms are the largest on the island (with the possible exception of some of the rooms in the Jekyll Island Club Hotel) - another plus. It has 71 guest rooms and suites, from rooms sporting single King beds to double Queens, and suites with Queen beds and a separate living room and kitchen area.
Guest rooms come equipped with refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, and cable TVs.
Traveling with furry family members? The hotel is a pet friendly
facility. As of this writing, there was an add-on nightly fee of $10.00, you can house up to 2
pets per room (20 lbs. per pet or less). Call ahead for details.
Like to swim? Quality Inn and Suites has a fine outdoor pool and sundeck, fringed by palm trees, and a hot tub for those of you who (like me) tend to do too much when on vacation and wind up with aching muscles.
They also provide a shuffleboard court and a horseshoe pit, along with a shaded picnic area with grills and tables.
For those morning munchies, try their Continental breakfast in the Hospitality Room. It's free! Guests also get more free stuff - free coffee, newspapers, and local calling.
For Business Folks -
If you're on the island for business, the hotel offers free wireless high speed internet in every room, and copy and fax support services.
You can check current rates and reserve your tiny bit of paradise at this great family-oriented hotel by calling (912) 635-2202. Or take a gander at the Quality Inn and Suites website. They're located at 700 North Beachview Drive, Jekyll Island, GA, 31527.
