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

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

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.

affordable Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island

You’ll fall in love with Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island at check-in thanks to this welcoming three-story lobby awash in ocean colors and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows

Affordable family getaway for a week or weekend

This Golden Isles hotel offers a truly relaxing retreat. Because Jekyll Is. is so invitingly undeveloped compared to Hilton Head or St. Simons. You don’t leave Jekyll needing a vacation from your vacation.

This refurbished two-story hotel alongside the Atlantic Ocean is the ideal spot to relish nature and spend time in it with your family.

Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island Kids Eat Free

Kids eat free at the oceanside restaurant at Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island.

Holiday Inn Resort Jekyl ISland

The dark-bottom oceanside pool at the Holiday Inn Resort on Jekyll Is. where it was warm enough to swim this past Sat. Feb. 27.

The island bike path winds alongside wind-sculpted trees in the lawn between the hotel and beach. The hotel’s elegant dark-bottom pool with sleek lounge chairs is surrounded by a Plexiglass fence so you are always within view of the ocean.

In addition to standard, spacious rooms, the Holiday Inn Resort on Jekyll Island also offers kitchen suites perfect for families who want more room and to save money by eating in, but don’t want to rent a house or condo.

Suites include a kitchen with full-size fridge, stove-top, sink, dishes, utensils – everything you need so you can enjoy meals looking for dolphins from your balcony. A door separates the bedroom and living/dining room area so you don’t have to go to bed when the kids do.

Chances are you’ll get a room with an ocean view as 80 percent of the resort’s 157 guestrooms face the ocean.

Kids staying at the Holiday Inn Resort eat free at the hotel’s outdoor restaurant which overlooks the pool and ocean. A portion of the restaurant is enclosed during cold weather. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Dog-friendly

Not only are Jekyll Island’s beaches dog-friendly so is Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island. 

Canine guests are even given a treat bag at check-in complete with doggie clean-up baggies.

If you’re traveling with a dog, request a pet-friendly room when making your reservation. Some rooms do not permit pets. 

You, too, will be smitten with this fresh escape on Jekyll Is. Check availability here.

Savannah Children’s Museum & Ronald McDonald House Charities offer art program for Memorial’s pediatric patients

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

Carts with Heart Memorial Savannah We love that the Coastal Heritage Society, in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the Coastal Empire, has started a new hands-on art education program for children who are receiving medical care at The Children’s Hospital at Memorial Health.

This program for pediatric patients is called “Carts with Heart.”

The program will take place regularly at The Children’s Hospital at Memorial Health and the family room at the Ronald McDonald House, which provides a place for families to rest, re-charge, and interact. Each art education program will be geared towards children between the ages of 4 and 12 and the anticipated number to be served throughout the year will be approximately 3,000 people or more.

Savannah Children’s Museum educators will lead academic art activities from a mobile cart for child-patients and their families, providing an opportunity for these children to continue their education through hands-on, creative activities while receiving medical treatment.

The goal is to alleviate stress for children and their families by providing quality time together that is not focused on the child’s illness.

“Carts with Heart” is provided through generous support from the Arts Ashore Legacy Fund grant through The Savannah Community Foundation.
