The hotel/motel is nothing special, to be honest, but it has immense charme and is absolutely close to town hall, historic district and Riverstreet. It has a free parking lot, donuts for breakfest and basically tidy. Good value for low price!

Viva la 50s! The Thunderbird celebrates aqua and orange and George Jetson decor without apology! The rooms are a bit cramped, but the staff is great and there's a nice "neighborhood" atmosphere with other guest; for instance we sat on our "stoop" and had a couple of early evening cocktails while meeting our fellow travelers. I loved the "green" effort... More

My son and I stayed in one of the newly renovated king size rooms. Very nice job with the reno! Great place to stay...I will be back! FYI: If you don't agree with the first price given for the room they will give you a 25% discount.

I'm pleased you like the renovated rooms! I'm also happy you were able to receive a great deal! We strive to always provide a nice value, up to offering huge discounts when we have a few extra rooms to sell. We'd rather sell a room to a new fan, than let it sit unloved. :) More

We stayed here when the motel opened some years ago and in comparison,I would say now it's the time to start looking at refreshing the decor before the place looks tired, changing the TVs to flat screen and so on. Hotel should also check the AC/heating which seems to be set a a certain temperature and no matter what you... More

You were here while that was going on, did you not get to peek in the rooms that were being renovated with new flooring, new furniture, new blinds, 43in flat screens? Lots of wonderful things are happening as I write this! I am sorry about the AC being set wrong. With the late onset of winter, we hastily switched them... More

Rooms are filthy. You can't sleep. Rooms are EXTREMELY noisy! You can hear EVERYTHING that goes on outside. You feel like you're on the street. Hotel is close to main areas but is not located in a pretty one. There is a bad neighborhood right behind the hotel. If you want to rest and have a pleasant trip, do yourself... More

I'm sorry you didn't like your experience with us. I wish we would have know while you were here to make it better. As far as a bad area behind us, there is a parking deck for the Embassy Suites, then the SCAD Museum of Modern Art. Please feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk... More

My wife and I stayed one night at this motel with our two pets. The motel has easy access to and from the interstate highway I95. From the outside the motel is not much to look at and our room was dated and worn. It was however clean and comfortable and as such it met our needs. The staff were... More

Loved this motel. They are in the process of updating rooms but the construction noise wasn't an issue. Everything promised on the website, they delivered on. Moonpies, RC colas and Krispy Kreme donuts were a deciding factor to stay here but the location was good, too. Great value.

We visit Savannah as much as our lives allow us. Now that we have a dog, our search for a hotel was a little different. After looking at all of the "pet-friendly" hotels and prices, this place was a must. I looked at the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give this place a try. We were definitely pleased when...

We have stayed here a few times while dropping off or visiting our son in SCAD. PROS: Location is great, everyone on staff is great, comfy beds and pillows, showers have great water pressure, and prices very reasonable! We love the retro aspect of the hotel. CONS: thin Windows allow road noise and neighbors to be heard. ALL IN ALL...... More
