We go to Savannah several times a year. We stayed at the Thunderbird this time because our other spots were either booked up or way out of our price range (because of it being July 4 weekend). It was what I expected. The price would have been too much for what we got, but all the prices were inflated for... More

The friendliest place! Really enjoyed our stay! Leslie & Tony were great! Even the other guest were like friends rather than stranger's! Loved everything from the retro look and oldies playing to the wonderful fresh doughnut free breakfast! Very convenient location. Walking distance to River street!

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel and it was OK for the price. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was quiet and clean but the magic fingers on the king bed did not work on one side. My biggest complaint was that the light in the bathroom was on a motion detector to save energy... commendable from... More

After reading a number of good reviews I decided to stay in this hotel for my overnight stay in Savannah...what a disappointment! Over priced, uncomfortable beds, unclean appearance and on a very busy road so quite noisy. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone despite the fact they say they are the hippest hotel in Savannah. The wifi did... More

I liked the idea of free popcorn and lemonade upon arrival.The complimentary bikes were great to get around town .But the room was hot and the carpet needs to be replaced beyond cleaning. The cloth headboards are unsanitary. I did enjoy where the owner was going with the theme.Updates would improve thus greatly.

You are looking for a good location without spending too much and you want a comfortable clean room. The Thunderbird delivers! Spent one night on the way home and loved the deal and the digs. Close to downtown Historic District so we could easily walk around and see the sights with great restaurants close by. The room was smallish but... More

Let me preface by saying we knew exactly what we were getting in terms of "you get what you pay for." We booked literally a half hour before arrival, having no set plans, nor any clue really about what to do in Savannah. Driving into the city I was pleasantly surprised that it was SUPER easy to find (huge, totally... More

Opened room door and stepped into '70's. Clean and comfortable. Pet area for Fifi. Classic Krispy Kreme donuts and coffee bfast. Walking distance to historic area. Easy access to cabs and tours. I'll be back.

The staff was very nice. Price is good for being so close to the historic district. The rooms, well that's another story. Our rug was damp and the room needed a good cleaning. I know the hotel is "retro" but the air vent in room 116 looks like it hasn't been cleaned since 1960...it was black. That isn't my kind... More

The outside is a real throw back! Do not stay in room 105. It is right next to the ice machine that gets used into the wee hours and the maids room is next door (they start early). The toilet didn't flush very well, the drain took 5 minutes to drain and it had the original bath tub! The AC... More
