    Good Facility for the Value!

    by

    We had a King Suite and liked having the extra room. The room was clean and comfortable. This is a regular hotel with no freels but a good place to stay. Had a variety of options for complimentary breakfast. This is a good basic hotel accommodations at a reasonable rate. The staff was very welcoming and helpful.

Travel Tips for Saint Simons Island

The fishing pier

by tpangelinan

The local fishing pier at the end of King's Way. This is a nice pier, large, clean, and has cleaning stations for you to clean you catch. Great views. Really nice people make this island fun. This pier has been here near a hundred years.

st. simons lighthouse

by doug48

pictured is the st. simons lighthouse and museum. the first st. simons lighthouse was built in 1815. over the years there were several lighthouses on this site. the lighthouse you see today was built in 1872 after the previous lighthouse was destroyed during the civil war. at the base of the lighthouse is the museum of coastal history. for a fee you can visit the museum and walk up to the top of the lighthouse.

St. Simon's Lighthouse

by grandmaR

After we crossed bridge to St. Simon's Island, our first visit was to the lighthouse. Because it looked like rain, we took the pictures outside first. Bob concentrated on the signs, and I took some photos of the inlet.

After we finished taking pictures outside, we went into the museum.

Downstairs were various exhibits and the museum shop.

I took a photo of this secretary because it was similar to one that my mom had. The sign on it says:

"Secretary Desk
From William Audley Couper, son of John Couper. Empire style mahogany veneer circa the early 1800's.
Donor: Butler King Couper."

There was also an Empire sofa

This sign (titled "What is Happening Here?") says:

In a historic building only a few yards from the ocean, moisture is certain to have a serious effect. Moisture affects the interior walls by entering the building through tiny cracks and pores in the stonework. It can also enter the building through rising moisture in the crawl space and through small openings around the window casings. You can see the effects of moisture in the Keeper's Dwelling. Here, blistering paint on the plaster is caused by moisture laden air passing through the brick and mortar. ...

On the wall below the sign you can see signs of deteriorating plaster.

We saw something similar in Aruba where the colonists used salt water to build the walls and the salt leeching out of the masonry caused the paint to bubble and disintegrate - they have to repaint every couple of years.

Upstairs, they had rooms set up to depict life for the lighthouse keepers.

After we left the museum, we went to see the Maritime Museum (although we didn't go in) and then went out to Fort Frederica.
