We were really excited to stay at this Inn for our 5 year anniversary. However, we were placed in a room on the first floor (basically the basement) with barely any natural light because the one window we did have, butted about 3 feet away from the tall building next door. The room entrance was off of a side iron... More

This b&b is on a great street for viewing old savannah as well as close to several historic sites and beautiful parks/squares. The interior was beautiful, breakfast very good, and the nightly wine and desserts wonderful. Our room was not as big as the photos seemed to indicate but it was fine, the only noise we heard was the fountain... More

This was an ideal place for a woman traveling alone, in town for only one night. My petite room was fine for one night. Sleeping on the top floor, I felt secure. My car was parked right out front, under a street light. I could walk everywhere, for meals and for exercise, along charming old streets. The staff were all... More

This was my first time staying at a B&B, and loved it. We didn't like the room opening out to the main street, so we asked to switch to another room at the loby level and it was lovely. The room had 2 queen beds and was very spacious for 3 adults. Madison was on duty every afternoon/evening we were... More

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
