“Third Rate at best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2006

First off, though it is not just a problem with this hotel, the International Paper plant stinks up the air in Savannah when the wind is blowing the wrong way. Rooms here have that typical suflur stink of mill towns.

The hotel itself is old and has a stuffy smell. The regular rooms (I did not stay in a suite) are fine, but they have the sink in the living area, which can be unacceptable for couples since you can't shave or wash if the other person is sleeping.

There is no food in the evenings, not even bar food at the tiny bar and sitting area.

The nights I stayed in October 2006 there was a band playing outside somewhere nearby, and it was awful. Loud, lousy, annoying, and audible inside the rooms of the inn.

Would not stay here again, nor recommend it under any circumstances.

  • Tips/Secrets — Which way is the wind blowing?

My husband and I stayed 2 nights during a trip for our anniversary. When I told the front desk receptionist this, he upgraded us to a suite...Very nice, very comfortable, very clean, friendly and helpfulf staff. The breakfast area was large and had plenty of choices. NOT the usual "continental breakfast" most hotels offer. If we are ever in this area again, we will definately stay here again. Convenient walking in the historic district.

  • Liked — location to historic area
  • Tips/Secrets — stop at visitor's center for tickets to trolley/may also get a discount to this hotel
  • Stayed August 2006, traveled as a couple
