The building is gorgeous and has a lot of character and the location is superb--Jones is one the most beautiful streets in Savannah. Service is friendly. However, the furniture, carpets, and décor are tired and in need of replacement. The common areas are clean but the rooms are extremely dirty. We changed rooms and we had the same experience in...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay here. It was the sanity in an historical downtown that was weirdly interesting. This was our first trip to Savannah and the city, the downtown area, was mesmerizing. We enjoyed our touring in the daytime, but relished the return to our B&B every evening. We always appreciate places with a personal touch and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Eliza Thompson House for 3 nights. The hospitatlity was wonderful. It is beautiful and we loved that it served breakfast in the courtyard every morning. The house has a wonderful history associated with it. It was close to everything we we wanted to do and see.

Very lovely – my sister and I stayed here and really enjoyed this B&B! Great location in the heart of Savannah, beautiful courtyard, lots of character, excellent service, on and on… It really felt like coming home every time we walked through the door. All the staff was super friendly, and the daily cocktail hour was fun to chat with... More

We stayed 3 nights here for our 10th anniversary. From the moment we walked in until we turned in our keys, our stay was perfect! We stayed in one of the Queen Garden Courtyard rooms. The room was great, with a nice view into the courtyard below and very private, despite a room next door. Breakfast cooked by Miss Virginia... More

Wonderful place to stay. From the staff to the beautifully tree lined street, to the breakfast in courtyard. Breakfast was very good and so relaxing with the sound of the fountains. It was comfortable and pleasant place to be. Location was perfect and everything was in easy walking distance. Jones street is absolutely the most beautiful street in Savannah. Staff... More

We visited the Eliza Thompson Home on the recommendation of our close friends (who came with us for their second stay), everything they said about this wonderful place came true, from the great staff, fantastic breakfast, wine & cheese and Hors D"ouevres in the afternoon and dessert snacks late in the evening. We couldn't have asked for a better location... More

Had a terrific time staying at the Eliza Thompson House for the past two days. The bed and breakfast was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and nice. Nell who works the desk has been outstanding. She was very helpful last month when I set the reservation, and continued to be great throughout our stay. We enjoyed... More

A lovely B&B in Historical Savannah! Great location in among other older homes and parks. Friendly and helpful staff with a tour of the House on arriving. Very nice wine, cheese and greet reception at 5:30, and dessert in the evening. The breakfast in the walled garden was very peaceful and delicious.

Great location, friendly staff. The courtyard for breakfast is very nice. We did not experience any problems. This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast. The rooms are not the typical size of a hotel room but we did not expect them to be. They met the purpose which was a nice place to sleep and get ready... More
