This was our first experience staying at a Bed and Breakfast. We look forward to many more.The courtyard was beautiful and serene. This is a great place to stay in the historic district in a lovely quiet area. Everyone is very helpful and nice. The king size bed was very comfortable and they had easy accessible WiFi. The wine &... More

The Eliza Thompson house is located on Jones St. This is by far the prettiest street in Savannah. The hotel is nicely done and takes you back to another time. The staff is super friendly and helpful. It's easy and safe to walk to restaurants and attractions. Parking might be a problem but we took a taxi from the airport... More

My husband and I stayed at the Eliza Thompson house in the Fall of 2013 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were given the "most haunted" room in the house that was on the top floor located inside of the actual original home. We loved reading about the home's history in the book that was located inside of our... More

We could not have enjoyed ourselves more at this lovely inn as we celebrated our 15th anniversary. We arrived just in time for wine and cheese which we chose to take to the beautiful courtyard. A wonderful atmosphere in the parlor, where appetizers were served, was also available with several couples enjoying a glass of wine and each others' company.... More

Our trip to Savannah was really a one night stop over on our way to Orlando but we wish we could’ve stayed longer. When we arrived at the Inn, we were promptly and politely greeted by a gentleman who offered to carry any of our bags. Check-in was no problem and we were in our room in no time. Our... More

Stayed in one of the 2 original rooms. To be expected, bathroom is small, but manageable, however, the room was good sized and the bed was SOOOO comfortable. Located on lovely Jones Street. The parlor is charming. The breakfast is really an unbelievable fresh homemade buffet with hot entries, fresh fruit, drinks, and they even had grits. The breakfast courtyard... More

The rooms are beautiful, and right in the center of the historic district, so it is a short walk away from everything (tours, stores, bars, restaurants, the river, etc...). You really get an authentic southern historic feel in the house (with the benefits of Air Conditioning). Breakfast is home made and satisfying, there is a happy hour and desert time... More

My husband and I stopped here for a single night's stay (Thursday) on a whirlwind tour of Georgia. We were greeted outside by Brandon, who was incredibly nice and helped us check in/gave us a quick tour of the property. Wine and cheese reception every night from 5:30-7 and desserts/decaf coffee from 8:30 (I think) until 10 PM. Great location,... More

The hubs and I stayed at the Eliza Thomspon House a few weeks ago, and we couldn't be happier with our visit. The service was top notch from the start, with friendly greetings each time we left or entered. The weather reports threatened rain, so the staff left umbrellas by the front door for us to grab on the way... More
