I cannot say enough good things about the Thunderbird Inn...Stayed here for two nights and loved the accommodations so much. Beds and pillows were probably the most comfortable we have ever had...Rooms were spotless and quite comfortable. Housekeeping staffers were friendly and amazingly knowledgeable and informative about Savannah and the local history...really helped us. In the lobby, you are welcomed... More

We could not sleep at all since bed was infested with MITES. Linens and carpet were not clean. Horrible chemical odour in room. If you go there for its architecture, buy instead a postcard @ reception for 50c instead. Avons opté pour le look hype du motel à notre grand regret (acariens). Avons dû annuler notre 2eme nuit. À fuir... More

This inn has the potential to be a really cool place. Unfortunately, it's not kept clean. The 1st thing we noticed was the OVERWHELMING smell of bleach when we walked in the room. It smelled like a big bucket of bleach was sitting on the floor. I'm not sure where it was coming from -maybe the sheets....? There was dirty... More

Near the Historic District of Savannah, this motel was excellent for the price. The lobby and hotel staff were excellent in helping us with tours and getting directions to any destination we chose. You can't beat the great Kripy Kreme donuts every morning with coffe and to end the day finding Moon Pies and RC's in the room. Great for... More

We stayed in Savannah 3 days waiting for our son to get in from an overseas deployment. Chose the Thunderbird because it was in town, it had good reviews and was reasonably priced. It is indeed a retro location and definitely has the 60's ambiance. The front desk staff was very polite, professional and accommodating. The rest of the staff... More

Upon arrival at the hotel I was greeted by friendly staff who checked me in. This is where the pleasantness of my stay end. After entering room, I found seaman stains on headboard and brown stains on the white bed spread. Hair was left in the shower and on the sink. The toilet paper had not been refilled. I was... More

Being cheap, I was looking for a reasonably priced place to stay for one night in the historic part of Savannah. I called to check the price and was told they had a walk in special. It was less than half the price of other hotels I had called. We walked in and were satisfied that we did. The room... More

Such nice friendly staff, great attempts at fun kitschy offerings like pop corn, moon pies, and donuts, but... the room smelled like mildew, the curtains were dirty and the wall tiles in the bathroom hadn't been washed in a while. We really wanted to love this place, but were disappointed.

I had an enjoyable experience while staying here on September 30, 2014. The front desk staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the attractions in the area. They checked back with me after I went to the room to make sure I was happy. The room was decorated as advertised and brought back memories of my younger days. The RC Cola... More

It's 1960's kitschy-cute in the best way! But more important than "cute" The room was clean, the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful, and it is in a good location for first-timers to The Hostess City. This is an easy walking town, and the T-Bird is an excellent home base. The bed was comfortable, and had Magic Fingers massager.... wonderful!
