Today’s post is from a new travel writer, Patricia King (no relation), who recently had the pleasure of visiting the Georgia coastal island, St. Simons with her best friend, Joann. Pat adores traveling in style, but refuses to pay top dollar. Here she gives her review of her visit to one of the island resorts, King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort. Enjoy!

The historic King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort is the only luxury hotel on beautiful and charming St. Simons Island, GA, located 60 miles north of Jacksonville, FL; 65 miles south Savannah, GA. It is situated at the southeast end of St. Simons Island, where the island’s best beaches are. Now in its 76th year, the King and Prince is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America.

On arrival, we were greeted at a hotel reception desk and shown to our room. The room was spacious and very well furnished with a comfortable sofa, coffee table, a work desk with two chairs, a big flat-screen TV, a DVD player, a room safe and a bed, of course. The bathroom was average in size and the toiletries provided were beautifully presented in environmentally friendly packaging.

There was also a small balcony with two chairs and a table. This was very comfortable both for snacking and for being able to use our computers outside. The resort offers complimentary Wi-Fi throughout so this was very handy, as it enabled both of us to go online at the same time.READ MORE
