Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice, floating Docks. Shore power was good. Courtesy car was very helpful. Beautiful rural area. Took an Uber to downtown Savannah for $25. Downtown Savannah was well worth a visit.

We made a last minute reservation and we arrived late. Chris the dockmaster arranged for a dockhand to wait for us. He was very accommodating. The marina is right on ICW but still very few wakes. They had a loaner car available.

Chris and his team do a great job. They're courteous and helpful. They recommended an excellent local marine technician, Elfin with Complete Marine Services, who quickly helped us with a major engine problem. This extended our stay, but we were glad to have the time to discover Isle of Hope and Savannah. Carl and Donna

We loved our two night stay at Isle of Hope. All of the staff were great - helpful, knowledgeable, accommodating. The loaner car saved us a fortune in ride costs and allowed us to shop for things we would not have bought with just a bicycle. Pool access at the community pool a short walk up the street. Neighborhood is quiet. Marina is in a No Wake zone, so even on the face dock, we were not rocking all night.

We love Isle of Hope Marina and have stayed here many times! It’s a picturesque setting right on the ICW without the boat wakes that you would normally get since it’s a No Wake Zone. We’ve even left the boat here on several occasions for several weeks to fly home and felt comfortable doing so with the attention given to our 58’ x 23’ power cat on their face dock. Kimberly and Andrew are both the best! Andrew came out in the rain to help us dock and Kimberly always makes us feel welcome when we call or come into the office. It’s such a bonus to have not only one but two loaner cars! And it’s kind of fun to drive them and be nostalgic about all the old systems we had in cars…no A/C, manual windows and door, no GPS or backup camera, but everything works just fine! Lol! And we were told they were replacing the older car with a new one. We don’t care, just happy to be able to drive into town to provision and enjoy Skid away Island’s medical services (when needed), restaurants, West Marine, liquor and grocery stores. We highly recommend!

Marina Response:
Thank you so much for the kind words! We enjoy what we do and we are glad that we were able to share it with you. Looking forward to hosting y'all again soon...I know you will be excited to try out the "new" loaner car :) it is always a pleasure to host y'all at the marina!!

We stayed at Isle of Hope Marina for five days due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Nicole. We were on an unprotected dock so when the wind was coming out of the east, we had a lot of wave action hitting the side of the boat making it hard to sleep. That said, the marina is set on a beautiful cove and as it is 4-5 miles inland, it was good protection from the storm. I recommend it if in a big storm situation. They need to work on the internet as 5 days without wifi kills your communications plan, financially. They do offer free loaner cars and that is a great benefit. We used it a number of times to hit Publics and Kroger. The bathrooms were clean and well taken care of. I will stop there again when I bring my boat back in the spring
