My wife, myself and another couple stayed in the first floor apartment. As far as size goes, this location was beyond comfortable for four people. The first floor includes 2 beds and 1.5 bath, plus a sleeper sofa if necessary. Check in was absolutely the most convenient I have ever experienced. Payment is made in advance and the pass code...

I stayed here with my girlfriend and family (6 of us in total). We absolutely loved this place! It was very nice, spacious, and located right in downtown Savannah (a minutes walk away from the waterfront and many bars, restaurants, stores, etc.). We only stayed for 2 nights but would definitely love to come back and stay at the Oglethorpe... More

We have stayed in Savannah several times before but have never had a better location. The lodge is across the street from the middle of River Street and only a few blocks from the City Market. While the building is a little dated it was very clean, well stocked with toileteries and comfortable foam martresses. The kitchen could have been... More

If you are planning on cooking your meals, you may want to inquire about the specific items provided in your suite.If you plan on bringing your own beverages,... More

We absolutely LOVE the Oglethorpe Lodge and look forward to many return trips! My husband and I stayed on the top floor. We had absolutely no trouble finding the Lodge, or parking there for the week. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy all that Savannah has to offer and felt very safe in the area. Our parents joined... More

We rented all three units at the Oglethorpe Lodge. It was a great place to stay for our daughter's wedding weekend. My wife, daughter and I stayed in the two bedroom middle floor Suite 902. The groom and best man stayed in the top floor Suite 903. My wife's sister and family stayed in the first floor unit Suite 901.... More
