Jekyll Island Club Hotel

Instantly I could tell the hotel was best admired from afar – as it seemed it was only the 100-plus years of paint holding it all together. I love old restored buildings, but this hotel was not restored just old. Our room for the weekend was a suite in the main hotel structure, which was a massively large room with two double beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa. The bathroom was equally massive in size. However, as large as the room was, the single closet was almost nonexistent and the fixtures, appliances, carpet, etc., were very old and worn. However, the room condition was not a concern; it was the lack of air-conditioning for the entire weekend.

Although the A/C was working, it was painfully obvious that it was not sized to cool that size of room on a hot Georgia weekend. Moreover, all of the public areas of the hotel were kept at the same hot temperature. Only after repeated complaining and insisting on some sort of compensation we were offered two tiny separate rooms with only a single double bed in each (and a view of the broken A/C units), which would have forced us to split up our family and still be a sleep space short. We stayed the room until Sunday for our children’s sake, but I would never waste my money on Jekyll Island again.
