First impressions are key and the front staff, especially Whitney, are what keep me coming back. Our recent accommodations were spot on with one of the best corner rooms overlooking the river with a balcony. The room was spacious and clean. Loads if history. Modern bathroom. Special requests taken care of flawlessly. The only negative was the mattress quality. An... More

Between Bay St and River St, this is a great location for convenience to First Friday and First Saturday events. Staff was eager to please. Room was decorated with Southern charm. Room with the river view was a great place to see the fireworks.

Our 25th anniversary, booked graciously by our daughter as a gift. We had a great time. For the price of the room it was on the smaller side, but perfectly adequate with a 5th floor view of the river walk which allowed us to watch the Saturday night revelling below in relative quiet, as well as the monster container ships...

We typically always stayed at newer Holiday Inn type hotels so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the old world charm, character and beauty of this hotel. Our room was the typical size you would expect with a nice view of River Street below. It was clean, had a large modern bathroom with all the... More

We'd been here before and what I remembered most was the creaky floors on the main level. This place is a throwback to the elegant hotels of yesteryear. Yes, it may have a worn look here and there, but it's old! The doors require some maneuvering as the place isn't entirely level. It is perfectly located approximately in the middle... More

Thank you so much for your great feedback!! We are certainly not your typical Hampton Inn and it is nice to see guests who appreciate the "Quirks" of a historic hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back again and again!! More

We never had bath robes, housekeeping or any of the other items listed when making a reservation. The whole thing sounded like Heaven, we were out all day long and when we arrived at 4 p.m. we had to beg to get someone to clean up the room. Horrible service.

We arrived for Labor Day and were pleased with the location of the Inn ~ right on hustling River Street. Parking is tricky and I feel the Inn needs a bigger sign at their entrance. We circled the building twice. Nice room, nothing fancy. There was no soap when we arrived and there was trash in the desk drawer of... More

Thank you for your comments. We take them very seriously and will do all we can to continue to improve our commitment to service. I agree that the navigation of downtown Savannah can often be a challenge and it is frustrating to be circling the block when it is time for your vacation to start.

Was very disappointed in this hotel. While it does have a great location going for it, I found it dirty, smelly, and worn out. My room smelled like a combo of mold, smoke, and something else not identified.. strange for a hotel designated a "no-smoking" property. Front desk staff are overworked and understaffed. Housekeeping did not put robes in the... More

For the price, River Street Inn is quite a good deal considering it is right on River Street. We checked in early (before 10 and they had our room available. We reserved the room that morning bc we decided to stay an extra night in Savannah, and the b&b we were staying at did not have any space for us... More
