I liked this place. I did not find any faults with it at all. It was nice, clean, nice room, everything worked, staff nice and friendly. Just at the border of historic district but priced was much less than you would pay inside historic district. In that motel you are just a 5 min walk away from historic district and... More

Easy to get to all of your Savannah destinations without a car (or with if that's how you roll). Rooms and motel have a fun, retro look. Staff was pleasant, and the room was clean. I stayed with a friend, and it was easy to share the room with it's two double beds. Price is very reasonable. I'd stay there... More

This hotel is more like a cheap motel..... very unhappy with how filthy, and dirty the place was kept. I do not recommend it... They didn't clean my room for two days, I had to complain and they gave me such an attitude... It is a big NO!!!

Came to Savannah for a weekend trip with friends. The Thunderbird Inn was located in the perfect area - walking distance to almost everything you would want to walk to. It may not be the most updated or cleanest hotel, but it's perfectly fine to sleep in. The breakfast was worth it, however, I wish they had plastic cups so... More

The Thunderbird Inn is based on the 60's and they do a great job at achieving that. Check in was quick and painless and accompanied with fresh popcorn. Although parking was tight,real estate for parking is always at a premium anywhere in Savannah. The staff was always inviting and welcoming. Since my normal sleep schedule had me getting up at...

This property is quite fun. The retro aspect was a nice change of pace. My mom was just in heaven. The staff was very good assisting us in any way possible. I don't eat moon pies or drink RC Cola but the concept is cute. Room was clean and neat. The biggest challenge is the parking lot. The spaces are... More

This is the least expensive hotel in the historic district, but my stay here cost me over $12,000.00. My engagement, wedding and anniversary rings were stolen from my locked room. The police were contacted and a report made. I emailed the manager, begging for help, asking that the rings be returned anonymously. I even offered to pay a reward. I... More

The motel is in a pretty good location for getting to the historical areas of the city and was almost half the price of anything else for the nights we were there and within walking distance to where we wanted to go. When we first arrived we thought the area was very sketchy with bus station right across the street... More

We stayed at the Thunderbird Inn just one night, but we are soooo happy we chose the Thunderbird over other hotels in the area. We appreciated the "retro-ness" of the hotel from it's sign, to the exterior colors of the building, to the Moonpies on our pillow, to the Royal Crown Cola on the bedside tables. We checked in late... More

The boyfriend and I decided to spend a night in Savannah last week and I was torn between a nice, old, hotel or The Thunderbird Inn. I decided that we would both like the "retro-ness" of this hotel and the price kept me way below budget. We arrived around 9:30am (cause we were going to wait in line for lunch... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review. I'm sorry it wasn't a great experience. I fully understand pet allergies and how uncomfortable they can be. We work hard to clean rooms and replace the soft goods after each pet so it is fresh for the next guest. Again, I'm sorry this was your experience. regards, Mark More
