4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Wonderful historic inn built in 1854 located just a few steps from River Street. The room was beautiful with a comfortable bed, nice sitting area, and everything we needed. Melvin the Bellman was a joy to talk to; very happy and upbeat. He gave great recommendations for a variety of activites and area restaurants. The staff were, overall, friendly and accomodating. The evening wine reception with snacks was very nice. Although the breakfast is not typical B&B fare, there were a variety of choices and it was just right for us. There is a parking space in front for loading and unloading, and if you're lucky there will be parking in their very tiny lot (and they do charge $12 in addition to the room rate to park). We were not fortunate enough during our three day stay to get a parking spot, so we had to park at the public garage down the alley. It was not a problem though, as we only drove our car once during our stay to go to Tybee Beach and Bonaventure Cemetary. This inn is centrally located so we were able to walk to just about anywhere we wanted to go.

Room Tip: Room 325 is supposed to be haunted by Charlie!

Great location, large rooms, high ceilings. I agree with other reviews about the breakfast. Ok, if you just want to eat, but so many great choices nearby for breakfast. The wine offered in the evening was a nice treat. The staff was very friendly. We loved our chats with "Sheila". The place did get a bit noisy on the weekend, but running the fan helps.

We recently stayed five nights at East Bay Inn. Like most hotels there were positive & negative aspects to our stay.

Positive:
The staff - particularly Shelia at the front desk who did an outstanding job of helping us arrange restaurant reservations, provide advice on where to eat & visit and add a smile to our day. Everyone was very friendly.
Location - within walking distance of many interesting places in the historic district.
Decor - the hotel is in an old building and the period decorations are well done. Rooms are comfortable.

Negative
Building - the hotel is in an old building that has very poor noise insulation between rooms or between floors. People talking in the next room or walking on the floor above us were very annoying. After reading reviews of the hotel we got a room facing the rear of the building. Good advice! The Inn is on a very busy street (24/7).
Bathrooms - are relatively small and the fan was very noisy.
HVAC system - very noisy.
Breakfast - eatable but very basic

Highlights of our visit: Private walking tour of the historical district by Bobby Davis & wildlife observed on the 4 mile drive in the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor, facing the rear of the building are quieter

Outstanding facility and staff. This is one of the best lodging experiences we have ever had and traveled for over 30 years. The rooms are beautiful and enjoyed wine reception and continental breakfast.

We loved this property, it is located close to river street and is in walking distance to everything!! The staff is wonderful and they serve breakfast as well as have an on site restaurant in the basement area. We have recommended this inn to several of our friends and family and they were very thankful for our suggestion. I do however recommend to stay in the back of the inn and do not let the allure of the street room get you, they are noisy. Also just a heads up that parking is extremely limited( which they do warn you about) but there is a parking fee involved ($15 I think) which gives you access to park at any meter for the length of your stay or you can park in a garage that is to the north of the inn across the street. We stay here every time we go to Savannah, we only live an hour or so away and were engaged there so it's a special place to my husband and I.

My spouse and another couple stayed at the inn overnight just last week - the entire staff was very warm and eager to please throughout our stay. We arrived early on Thursday and were able to check our baggage and park the car in the nearby garage so we could spend most of the afternoon touring Savannah. Melvin the Bellman provides the best welcome and introduction to the East Bay Inn and made us feel like we were checking in to a 4 star hotel. Our rooms were the cozy queens which were very spacious - the decor is traditional with a 4 poster bed, beautiful decor and soft comfy chair and love seat. There was a flat screen TV which we didn't find time to use but is also a nice touch. The rooms were located in the back of the building which is quieter than the front side on Bay St. The evening wine and cheese plus the continental breakfast in the morning were nice touches. The inn also provides a turn down service for each room. We did not bring any pets but I understand this place does cater to pet owners also. We only had a short stay and spent most of our time outside exploring the area and taking a tour - the location is terrific and we could walk to nearby restaurants and shops. We definitely would love to stay here again and take more time to visit Savannah.

We checked in on a Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday morning. This B&B was very quaint, well appointed and the staff was friendly. The afternoon wine and cheese gatherings were a nice touch and a good way to start an evening. Our room was large and comfortable albeit my bed was a bit on the hard side for my liking. The furniture was large, but inviting and the room was cozy. There was a journal in our room in which prior guests had shared their hotel and city experiences which was fun to read and a great idea! The hot portion of breakfast left a bit to be desired, but there was enough fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, juices, etc. to make up for it. Coffee available any time was a plus as well. Over all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others staying in Savannah.
