I would definitely stay here again. About 20 minutes to Savannah 25 minutes from Tybee. Not alot of traffic to keep you awake. Restaurants near and rooms were nice and clean. Any time you book a hotel online, you never know what you're getting. If you want a nice clean room for a decent price, this is it!

Clean sheets and a good central location were the best things about the hotel. The carpet gave us black feet and was coming unravelled at the transition spot to tile in the restroom area. Beds were hard. That said, it is a budget motel and you get what you pay for. Could use some updates but OK otherwise. Close to several dining options and shopping.

We stayed two nights over the Labor Day Weekend. Everything was booked in Tybee Island and in the downtown Savannah, so we settled for a hotel outside of these. The location was not the greatest but the drive to Tybee was not too bad.The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was pretty clean and we could relax after a long day. The breakfast was okay but there was not a seat to sit at so we had to bring ours up to our hotel room.

Got a cheap rate and it was a nothing special room. We wanted and got a king room bottom floor so we could keep an eye on our bikes. Not sure why it always seems like we get stuck in the back of the motel not sure if they think we are "bikers" and that is the only place to put us? But they said the hotel is under renovation and i sure hope they get to the carpet and bed. Carpet looked dirty and the bed was flat and hard, pillows could stand an upgrade as well pretty much like the bed flat and hard. Bathroom bothered me, the type of tub/showers they have are plastic and they don't seem clean you could see where they were sprayed because you could see the streaks were running down the side of the tub! Staff was nice and check in and out was no hassle. I would prefer express check out where i don't even have to go to the lobby. Breakfast wasn't much but I am sure you could get enough to get ya started. FRUIT would be nice, they didn't have any so we went on our way.
