We saw this hotel when we were walking along the waterfront from the marina. When we came back to go to Cumberland Island, we booked in this hotel because it was the closest to the Cumberland Island ferries and I could walk across the street to them. The hotel is clean and old. Not fancy old with bed flounces and lots of little pillows. It is just old. It has Mission Oak furniture and some of the stair carpet is worn.

This historic hotel was built in 1916. The rooms have all been named after people who have either stayed at the Riverview Hotel or been a guest. The rooms are named after people as varied as Admiral Nimitz and the weatherman Willard Scott. We stayed in the Talmadge room - named after Georgia Governor Eugene Talmadge. We had two iron bedsteads and our own bathroom. There are plantation shutters on the windows.

The Riverview Hotel is an official SSCA Cruising station and will receive mail & packages for cruisers. This would be important to us - except for the rules that Georgia has against living aboard a boat which means that we can't stay here on our boat for more than a month.

Unique Quality: Amenities include Air conditioning, daily maid service, cable TV, HBO + ESPN, and continental breakfast. Wireless Internet available 24 hours- in the lobby but sometimes I can get it in my room. There is a big flight of stairs to climb to get to your room - definitely not handicapped accessible.
Hairdryers, alarm clocks, and iron available upon request.

A 24 hour cancellation notice is required. All major credit cards welcome.
State of Georgia charges 12% tax on rooms.

Directions: This hotel is the one that is nearest to the Cumberland Island Ferry and Visitor Center for Cumberland Island National Seashore.

This two-story hotel is located just across from the National Park dock for the Cumberland Island boat. The hotel was built back in 1916 and is in the very heart of the historic district of St Marys. This is not a Motel 6, the place drips with history and charm while not overdoing it like you can find at many a Bed&Breakfast. To sit out on the verandah at night, maybe with an adult beverage and watch the lightning off in the distance is worth the price of admission in itself. There is also a good attached restaurant, Seagles, where you can get good meals.

Unique Quality: Location, restaurant, and super verandah.
