Last year we came to Tybee and had a wonderful time. We stayed at the Desoto and ventured into Savannah by the trolley tour-it was worth it not to have to park and to get around easily. The only drawback was the expense of the Desoto-it ran us over $1,000 for a four night stay. I plan to return again this fall and I am making it a girl trip, so the Desoto is not a good option this time partially because of cost, but partially because the only ocean view rooms have king beds. So I guess my question is two parts:
Is the Howard Johnsons as nice as the Desoto?
Can you stay in Savannah and come to the beach for the day and enjoy yourself with the pier as your base of operation?
