“Close to everything "historic" in Savannah"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

How can I sum up the past three days in Savannah? Terrific to say the least. We loved the East Bay Inn and the wonderful staff that serves it. Parking is a problem for all but includes everyone that goes to the historic district for a stay.

Concerning staff: I have to mention Melinda, Jennifer, Julie, and Shelia at the front desk. They were most accommodating and I loved them all. "Melvin the bellman" was a hoot" and I could not stop giving him "tips" for his service levels. Their comment when I left was...."we don't get many people like you but when we do, it makes us appreciate our positions here at the hotel." Suffice it to say, I was always chiding them on every occasion I got.

My hat is off to "Ronnie" the manager as he helped me find an ex-coworker in Savannah from over 35 years ago. Where do you get service like that......only in the South where friends are friends forever.

Beware of the "haunted city" as we stayed in a haunted room. We had no trouble at all but "Charlie" would not let the phone work nor the thermostat until service staff "Steven" made it possible with an override command that took 30 minutes to complete. It's our understanding that "Charlie" wants things to be just his way. Be sure and take the "ghost tour" in a converted hearse so that you can understand more of what I am speaking of.

Great place to stay, close proximity to everything, and beautiful rooms with 18 ft. ceilings to boot. Built in 1854, this cotton warehouse is now a wonderful hotel and full to the brim with history.

The location of this hotel is great with a view of the River Walk just 50 yards away. The City Market is only five blocks away and an easy walk for all.

Be sure and ask for 'Melvin, the Bellman" when you get there! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Get a corner room upstairs with a view of the park and the streets.

For the 2 nights we stayed in Savannah the Ole South Experience continued in our room at the East Bay Inn as well as out and about the city. The rooms are beautiful, decorated to the period and very comfortable. The staff, including the front desk, bellman and housekeeper were outstanding. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. The Inn has an excellent location in the historic district. We parked the car in their lot and were able to walk to most restaurants and attractions. We are recommending this B & B to family and friends.

Room Tip: The Savannah Experienc continues inside your room at this beautiful B & B.

Beautiful decor; very well restored; very nice breakfast buffet; very cozy; friendly staff (particularly Melvin the bellman); be sure to ask for an inside room as the rooms on the main street are very noisy all night; within walking distance of the river and many of the downtown sights

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an inside room (away from main street) as the traffic is quite noisy all night

Since this hotel is pet-friendly, I made sure to request a non-pet room because of my allergies. Still, I had sinus headaches throughout my stay. We were out about during the daytime hours until the day we checked-out and that's when we noticed, with the sun streaming through the window, the LAYERS of dust on the furniture. No wonder my allergies were kicking in so bad! The hotels response was "we'll look into it". Also, the clerk at the front desk got extremely annoyed with me when I tried to recommend Old Savannah Trolley to other guests because she wanted to sell them Olgethorpe Trolley tickets. Apparently they have partnership. I would NOT recommend this hotel nor would I stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms are full of dust

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, comfortable atmosphere and the historic area surrounding the hotel made us feel like we were home! The building was well maintained and the architecture was amazing - high ceilings, antique furnishings. The quiet atmosphere made our vacation time spent there highly enjoyable. The location by the river and numerous parks to roam around was a great treat to really experience Savannah. The Inn is close to activities and tour/rides which were fun additions to our trip. We wanted to stay longer and we are already working on a return trip next year.

Room Tip: If you stay in Room 105, be sure to say hello to "Charlie".
