Our guests have graciously ratest us 4.5 to 5 stars on tripadvisor for Tybee Island, a short 18-20 minute drive from Historic Savannah. Tybee was named the healthiest beach by Health Magazine, the Top 10 City Beach in the USA by AOL and the best one tank trip by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. And, Tybee was the backdrop for the movie, "The Last Song" starring Miley Cyrus. and recently several episodes of Sponge Bob, Square Pants was shot here. Historic Tybee Island Inn, circa 1902, captures the beach casual essence of Tybee with style. Framed with magnificent live oaks and palms, enjoy the sea breeze from our large front or back porches or relax in our tropical gardens. Spend the day on the quietest beach access on the Island. Or, explore the Island's history and visit Fort Pulaski, home of a major Civil War battle in April 1862; the Tybee Lighthouse, recognized as the oldest and tallest in Georgia and the cannon embankments (gun batteries) and museum of Fort Screven.

This was our second stay here and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

This was our first experience in Tybee Island and we were met by wonderful hosts at the Tybee Island Inn. Our stay was short but outstanding. Lloyd and his wife were gracious hosts with lots of good ideas for our short stay. The Inn was clean and charming and breakfast was outstanding. If you have diet restrictions, they are more than happy to accommodate your needs. I would recommend the Tybee Island Inn to those who prefer a homestyle stay instead of a large establishment hotel.

This was my first B&B experience and I was impressed. The innkeeper Gary, the owner and the cleaning staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back next year - loved it!!

You feel at ease once you walk into the inn. A homemade baked good was served in the butler's pantry everyday which was delicious. Gary who is one of the Innkeepers was very helpful with questions and accommodating. The Breakfast's were excellent and not your general run of the mill items either. The inn is very clean and is a very short walk to the ocean. I would highly recommend it if you want to have peace and quiet and want to be away from the commercialism aspect of Tybee Island.

We had a short but wonderful stay at the Tybee Island Inn while in Georgia for our anniversary. The inn keeper, Gary was very pleasant and gave us a great recommendation for where to have dinner. We spent the day on the beach with inn provided towels and beach chairs. We stayed in the lighthouse room and it was very charming. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Tybee!

I stayed with my wife on our honeymoon in the flamingo room. It was small, but awesome. Would not have been awesome if we were older because there was limited room (a small spiral staircase leading up the the bathroom) but it was very (very) well done. Breakfasts were great! Tasted delicious. The innkeepers were very conscious of my wife's dietary restrictions, and made dishes accordingly. Definitely exceeded my expectations. Only thing that was a little off was the cleanliness. There were small black hairs on the sheets in the room. No. Not those kind of hairs. There were assuredly dog hairs as the room we were staying in was pet friendly (had a plaque on the wall describing it's popularity with pets) It did not bother us, but it would have been nice to not see that. (a.k.a. it met my expectations) 10/10 would stay again, and 10/10 would suggest to others.

Planned visit to Tybee. Read reviews and picked the inn. Met all what I read and expected. Do not expect fancy but you will get friendly staff, clean rooms and yummy afternoon snacks and breakfast. Close to the beach and all restaurants. We toured the fort and spent the rest of the time enjoying the island. Favorite place to eat was Cocos right over the bridge when you enter town and if you want a great burger try the Tybee Grill restaurant, the server Abbie was so sweet. Overall just a beach town but worth a visit. Side note..being from Florida the beaches were a big disappointment when you compare against the crystal clear water and white sands of St Pete. But in fairness we didnt come for the beach, we were on the way to visit family in north Georgia and decided to spend a day in Savannah and a day in Tybee. Back to the Inn a good pick if your in Tybee.

Little mix-up on room upon arrival and no one there to sort it out, so myself and another guest arriving at the same time just switched keys. Have stayed at many B&Bs, all but this one provided afternoon wine and snacks. We had a dessert available to eat in the afternoon here, but no wine, or any other drink for that matter. It is a non-smoking inn which I appreciate greatly. However, guests are allowed to smoke out on the porches and this I didn't enjoy...you either had to leave or go back inside if you didn't want to feel like you were smoking as well. Not a bad walk to the beach, about 5 mins, and the beaches are beautiful. Room was comfortable and clean.

Was a nice combination of beach and pool ! Room was a little "stuffy" for the price, but overall was a nice time.
