State Hotel-Motel Fee

In the 2015 state legislative session, Georgia House and Senate leaders passed House Bill 170, a bill which is attached to a broader transportation package that will funnel millions each year into road and bridge repairs in the state of Georgia. The State Hotel-Motel Fee – a mandatory $5.00 per night fee on any rented hotel room in the state of Georgia began effective on July 1, 2015. As such, the Jekyll Island Club Resorts are now lawfully required to act as an agent of the government and to collect this fee, per night per room.



The hotel features one of today’s most sophisticated safety fire alarm systems in the industry. Each room is equipped with a smoke detector hardwired into emergency generators. In addition, our sprinkler systems cover not only all rooms and public areas, but also crawl spaces and attic coverings. Hand-held fire extinguishers, as well as emergency lighting, have been strategically placed in all public areas to ensure the utmost of fire safety. Your precious valuables and jewelry are protected in our in-room safes.
