Small motel with funky touches in 50s style: Decor, complimentary cola, moon cakes. Clean and friendly, just around the corner from historical district. The service is friendly and the price is cheep.

This a really cool retro place to stay. The staff is friendly and will assist with local tours if needed. The rooms are really cool however the bath is somewhat small. Location is great and near the historical district. Really liked the fact that it is in the 60's makeup. Very enjoyable stay.

friendly staff, clean, cost-efficient, close to town, bicycle ride home makes it easy. Close to all the restaurants which in Savannah there are quite a few. Suggestion is try the old pink house, and Garibaldi's. Sit at the bar at Garibaldi's the bartender is great.

Nice nice staff. Not dirty, but some stains on the carpet and rooms and bath are small. That said, it's fun and quirky and the lemonade tastes great. Location is great for walking the historic district (which is a must if you want to really appreciate the buildings and the squares). Don't miss a short walk down MLK to the... More

We stayed there on a Fri and Sat night and it was awful. People were talking loud, laughing loud, smoking, and arguing within 10-20 feet of our door until 4:00am. We called the front desk twice, and both times I think someone came up and told them to shut up, but then within an hour it just started up again,... More

Overall, stay was great. Hotel is fun and uplifting and staff was friendly. Enjoyed the Moon Pie on my pillow the first night. Bathroom was a little small, kind of just had to back in and out. But, room was clean and beds were comfortable.

My husband and I were looking for a unique experience and found it. The location is great and within easy walking distance of downtime. The extra cost of parking was worth avoiding metered parking. The room was okay size and the bed surprisingly comfortable. The walls did not keep out the traffic noise though, so that was a pain. Krispy... More

I have wanted to stay at the Thunderbird Inn for several years but have always opted to stay a hotel closer to riverstreet. This year I took a road trip to Disney World and decided to mark this off my bucket list. I wanted the full experience so I purchased the deluxe room. When we got there the staff seemed... More

This was a pleasant place to stay. Walked about 3/4 mile to the River Front District. Stayed down there and ate and had drinks. Found a great Packer bar and watched the game for awhile. When we were to return to the hotel it was dark so a nice gal helped us flag down a pedi-cab and he took us... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon roadtrip. Staff was excellent, the room was clean, and great proximity for walking to all the great places in the historic district. Loved the retro theme! We'll be back!
