We needed somewhere to stay on our trip to Florida. This place was perfect. Close to everything and the price was fabulous! They have this funky 60's theme going on, and they also give you a moon pie!

We love Retro so even though there were mixed reviews I decided maybe people were just being harsh, with too high of expectations, so decided to give it a try. I regretted that decision. Our room was FILTHY. Not just old, but dirty. Filthy curtains, stains, hair in tub and in bed!! Awful. Such potential and a shame - it... More

We recently scored $32 flights to Savannah (thanks Jetblue!) and decided to keep the trip as low cost as we could. We knew we wanted to stay at a reasonably priced place in an area where we could walk everywhere, and Thunderbird met both of our criteria. The staff was very friendly. Leslie gave us great recommendations on where to... More

Was excited to try this hotel for nostalgic purpose. Website and reviews looked fun and we thought we would give it a try. When we checked in, there was a stain on the bedspread, blanket and carpet. Decided to expolore Savannah and live with it. When we came back, the stains were grossing my kids and wife out and we... More

When you drive up, it's like a time warp! The exterior is totally retro. The rooms are small but with all the necessary amenities and the decor is a 'retro shabby chic'. Bathroom tub could use some cleaning on the grout, but I didn't use it...still, for one night, it was acceptable for the great price.

You can't really go wrong when there is Krispy Kremes for breakfast. Nice room, helpful staff and great location - 10 minute walk from the main attractions. Wifi wasn't great though and could only be used on one half of the room.

This inn looks very appealing from the street which is why we chose it. It has a wonderfully retro sign and a whole early 1960s feeling about it. I would NOT stay here if I: Needed internet.

Please reach out to me. Mark@thethunderbirdinn.com I don't know what was wrong with the water pressure. I will see if others were complaining about the same issue. We do use conservation fixtures as we try to be good to our environment, but that shouldn't have an effect on the toilet tank filling. I"m not sure how you made your reservation,... More

Sure, the Thunderbird looks a little bit like a roach motel but don't judge a book by it's cover! We stayed here after a few days in the most uncomfortable hostel in Charleston and it was like heaven. The staff were so very kind and allowed us to check in early. The rooms were very clean and nicely air conditioned... More
