My wife and I wanted to be a short walk from the Savannah Riverfront and Historic District so we tried an overnight at this hip little hotel/motel and we were glad that we did. The front desk staff greeted us warmly and offered us a complimentary refreshing lemonade and some popcorn. Our room was comfortable and clean and on the... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was conveniently located to shopping, dining and Trolley Tours. We were there for four nights and four days, but our room was never cleaned! And I had to go to the laundry room to get clean towels!

A really convenient place to stay as we were visiting SCAD. The rooms were extremely comfortable. Beds were great, room was clean, shower was good. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. And LOVED the moon pie and RC Cola that greeted us in our room! I'll most definitely be back to stay :)

I was so impressed by the Thunderbird Inn, Clean room, comfortable bed, Great shower, but seriously, when was the last time you stayed somewhere that offered real glass drinking glasses, and honest to goodness coffee mugs? I hate plastic cups and usually bring my own coffee cups while traveling. And the view is simply wonderful I remember that area from... More

The only good thing I have to say is the beds were comfy. We stayed here for a last minute anniversary trip. 2 adults 2 children. The first night they messed up our room and gave us a room with one double bed. I instantly emailed the owner with no response even after the end of our 4 day stay.... More

Nice stay, was recmmended by my sister who stayed with her dog. Clean rooms, comfortatble bed and pillows, right next to downtown. Their eco-conciousness was a nice surprise and welcome. Quick walk right on edge of town, beside bus station, train museum and near welcome center.

This was my 2nd time staying at The Thunderbird Inn. My kids thought it was fine and everyone got a good night's sleep. The staff was extremely helpful and the $7.50 parking was great because on Easter weekend, I couldn't find any other spot and the full lots were at least $10 and some at $20. There is a Dot... More

We really enjoyed our experience! The retro flavor, the friendly staff, the RCs and Moon Pies that greeted us and the thick towels were a great plus! My only two suggestions to the hotel were better showerheads and wider parking spaces.

Least expensive hotel near downtown. Beds were very comfortable. Hotel a little old but sold as a throwback motel. We were close to most of our planned venues---movie tour , ghost tour and many restaurants. I was a little leery but it ended up being a bargainn.
