Tybee Island Inn

24 Van Horne Avenue , Tybee Island, GA 31328 USA (Show map)


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.

Spring getaway

4.2 on April 25, 2018

We just picked this place randomly, due to it's location on the island. Turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Food was excellent and the place is very charming. Would definitely go back

What a great place to relax and unwind!

4.8 on April 22, 2018

My husband and I were very impressed with the Tybee Island Inn. It was such a lovely and quiet place to get away from it all. Being away from all of the hustle and bustle of the motels and other tourists was a plus. We will most definitely make a return trip!

Wonderful Getaway

4.8 on March 05, 2018

Really enjoyed staying at this delightful B&B. Breakfast was delicious every day. Location allowed us to walk everywhere we wanted to go. A nice surprise was the performance venue right down the street. We were able to get last minute tickets to a concert. Can’t wait to go back!

The Innkeeper just as delightful as her Inn. There were more rooms than we expected. Full capacity was not a problem, we were well attended to when needed.

Pretty Nice, a Few Quirks However

3.4 on January 19, 2018

Really nice place, enjoyed staying here. Few quirks however, no coffee available in room, and only available at 8am in lobby. Breakfast was only served at 9am and was not offered in room. Overall nice experience, would recommend to others.

A Great End-of-year Stay

4.0 on January 10, 2018

We were welcomed by the charming front porch and the garden, with the overhanging moss. The breakfasts were very good. Lee has thought of everything that is needed for a beach visit--bicycles, beach chairs, and beach towels. Not that we needed any of those things because of the time of year. The end of year had a charm of its own, and the fireworks at midnight on New Year's Eve was a highlight.

When I called the Inn to confirm my check in time, after arranging our reservations for the weekend SEVERAL weeks prior (as well as receiving a confirmation email and paying for our stay in full), the employee that answered the phone informed me ...as I'm driving on the interstate to their location ...that they double booked the room and offered me no alternative solution or assistance. Unfortunately this resulted in a huge inconvenience ...the staff was very rude and unprofessional when discussing this issue via telephone ...it's quite a shame as we frequent Tybee often

Tybee Island Inn Getaway

I spent 6 nights at the Tybee Island Inn. The inn has a magnificent oak tree draped in Spanish moss to welcome you inside. Lee made wonderful, filling breakfasts each morning. She was helpful in giving us suggestions of the best places to eat on the island. It's just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Overall, our stay was great, and I would recommend the Tybee Island Inn to anyone who wants a peaceful, relaxing stay.

Lovely stay at Tybee Island Inn

5 on October 04, 2017

We had a wonderful 6-day stay at the Tybee Island Inn. The breakfasts that Lee made were wonderful and very filling. She was very helpful in suggesting places to eat. The beach is just a short walk from the inn, and the weather was perfect our entire stay. I would definitely recommend the Tybee Island Inn to anyone who wants a peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

Outstanding anniversary stay

5 on September 02, 2017

Last year my husband and I came for our honeymoon. So this year when we found out my brother was graduating basic training for the army, not too far away we decided to come back . Both times we stayed it was wonderful. Always clean and very polite people. It was nice to be able to walk to the beach and restaurants and then to come back and be able to relax. Highly recommend this place to anyone!
