Great Stay!

My husband and I spent our 10th anniversary at the Desoto Beach B&B - we are so glad we chose this one over the others! Everything was clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. From the first moments checking in we knew that we would be coming back! Ms. Debra is possibly the kindest person you will ever meet in life and she makes the most amazing french toast! We can not say enough good things about this B&B! The ONLY bad thing we could say about this place is that it was too hard to leave - we didn't want to go! We could not have picked a better place to celebrate our 10th anniversary!

Wonderful stay

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Desoto Beach Hotel Bed and Breakfast from the time we arrived until we left. The front desk clerk was very courteous, professional, and accommodated us promptly even without prior reservation. Hospitality came quickly and showed us to the beautiful house. We arrived just in time for horderves, which we loved the cheese and tea selections. After we were settled in we noticed that the smoke detector in the entrance was beeping; we let the front desk know and maintenance took care of it right away. The house is tastefully decorated and inviting. Everything is well kept and immaculately clean. The bed was very comfortable and we had a great night sleep. The Inn Keeper is a fantastic hostess, and cook. She makes a delicious breakfast with all the trimmings, treated us like family, and made us feel at home.

Fantastic Place!!!!!

Our first time to Tybee Island and we were not disappointed. We had the Honeymoon Suite and it was awesome. The house was lovely and furnished beautifully. Visiting with other guests made breakfast so enjoyable. Debra is a gem, and made our stay a wonderful one!

We were so amazed by our posh and elegant surroundings! The house 'Mom" was friendly and made us feel the most welcomed guest! A truly wonderful experience all the way around.

Peace and tranquility

I had the most awesome 1st time there which surpassed my expectations. A wonderful array of breakfast choice omelets, pancakes, waffles,bacon sausage, danish, coffee, juices fruit cereals,whatever u liked. A desirable cheese & wine display for the evening. OMG chocolate chip, & other assorted home made cookies during midday. The terrace was breathe taking with a hammock. The setting was right off the beach. Wonderful scenery a mile walk away from a board walk with live music as well as fire works. A restaurant on the beach 1/2 mile b4 the board walk that prepared scrumptious bohemian style conch, Drinks Dinner if you prefer. Just a quaint lovely enjoyable place & my companion made it feel like heaven. Our room was right next to the terrace with the hammock small however perfect with bathroom/shower. A terrace also on the opposite side of the livingrm over looking the beach a building away. The beach wasn't over crowded either beach chairs a water sprinkler to rinse off from the beach as well.I'm still smiling that was 2 years ago

Our awesome "Get Away"

Being from Savannah, we have stayed at the DeSoto Beach Hotel several times and not having been a Bed & Breakfast fan, we decided to take a chance when my husband and I got married last April on the beach. We needed a place for our family as well as a place to meet before and congregate afterward. We booked 3 of the 4 guest rooms and they were all wonderful. We're partial to the Tybee room which was a very special place to spend our honeymoon. It's a pleasant atmosphere as well as clean and comfortable. The true asset though is Miss Debra the "house mom". She is the best! and what a breakfast she cooks up. We just recently went back for our 1st anniversary and as usual Miss Debra helped to make it one of the most memorable couple days you could imagine.
