Pristine, affordable family vacation spot: Holiday Inn Resort on Jekyll Island

Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island

An oceanside, spacious hotel room on Jekyll Island that comes with a sunrise or two. You can’t beat that.

Plus, ocean views; newly refurbished digs; an outdoor oceanside pool; baby pool and hot-tub; al-fresco restaurant where kids eat free; easy beach access; a playground with picnic tables; rental bikes; wind-sculpted trees; fire pit; fitness center; and guest laundry facilities.

Oh and the place dog-friendly. How I love Holiday Inn Resort on nearby Jekyll Island, which is  an easy, roughly 90-minute drive south on I-95 from Savannah.
