Lodging Suggestions: 

 

Darien/McIntosh County:  approximately 18 miles from DNR

Go to Lodging

Suggest Open Gates Bed and Breakfast or The Blue Heron Inn

Hotels located at I-95 exits will be more inexpensive

Jekyll  Island:

Jekyll is currently undergoing extensive renovations/upgrading.  Some hotels
may be closed.  The Hampton Inn is one of the newer hotels on the island and
is located on the beach.    The Days Inn is located on the beach as well.

Epworth-by-the-Sea,   Village Inn, King and Prince
