If this "hotel" were located anywhere else in the U.S., it would not command a $150/night. We booked this place for our 5th anniversary for a couple of reasons: 1) most affordable hotel anywhere near the historic district and 2) intrigued by the theme. Turns out the theme seemed more accidental than intentional (i.e. was cheaper to write off the... More

Back for our second (and third) visit to the Thunderbird. This time was during the summer so we were looking to cycle around Savannah ("mostly flat", as google maps describes the routes). There are two bike sharing locations in the city, one just across from the Thunderbird in the transport hub, but it turns out that they also have two... More

The Thunderbird is located just off 17, so as you come from the north, it's immediately there! It is within walking distance of the historic district. It is eco-friendly and the staff is helpful. At night things are quiet - all in all this is a place I'd stay again!!

This was the best place we stayed on the East coast, the staff were really friendly and helpful, there were lots of leaflets in reception. They let us store our bags for the day when we checked out. It was a great location for the free "dot" trolley and the Greyhound bus centre was right across the road. The main... More

My wife and I have stayed here several times over the years and have never been disappointed! This past weekend, we celebrated our birthdays in Savannah and decided to stay at the Thunderbird again. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfy. Staff immediately responded to any and all needs. Internet was a little slow -- but that... More

You won't get super-luxury here (no pool), however the rooms are very comfortable and affordable. If you are looking for a cool retro hotel that is convenient to the historic district, then the T-Bird is the place.

We stayed at this place on our first trip to Savannah about 5 years ago. We found it on Hotwire, and it was ok for the price.I recently booked it again on Hotwire and even though they don't display the name of the room until after you buy, I knew it was the T-bird. A few improvements have been made,... More

I loved this place. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are comfortable and clean. They leave complimentary RC colas and moonpies in your room for you instead of a mint on the pillow. They have free popcorn and lemonade in the lobby during the day, and free donuts, coffee and juice in the mornings. The homemade soaps and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Thunderbird last week on our way back from Pennsylvania to Florida. We extended our stay for an extra night as we felt very comfortable with the motel and the staff. We had our 11 year old pekineses with us and she was treated very well by the staff. I would say that the... More
