If you are reasonably mobile and enjoy walking this is a great option. We stayed in the Tree Top room, which is really a suite, with generous bedroom and a large separate lounge/kitchenette. It is up two floors but worth the climb. The bathroom was a little snug and the shower a bit feeble, but bearable.
Savannah is a great town for walking, without the ubiquitous and infuriating traffic light junctions prevalent in larger towns. Drivers are very civil and pedestrian friendly. As stated in other reviews River Street is around a mile away but we simply took a different route each time we walked there, this way we got to see all of the beautiful squares and stumbled upon the less busy bars and and cafes, which worked out great. Chatham square, where SB&BI is located is lovely.
I have given 4 stars because of the breakfast. The format is great, as visitors from the UK we found that sitting at big tables and chatting to American residents was terrific, and an excellent source of travel tips and places to (and not to) visit.
The breakfast itself is served up as a complete meal, either 'sweet', 'savoury' of 'healthy', you have no say in what is provided. This makes it seem as though you are receiving rations, with no ability to get that second glass of orange juice, or yoghurt instead of pancakes etc. I can't see the attraction in this approach, why not just have a buffet, like virtually everywhere else, or take specific orders, cut down the waste and keep people happy. This is a bind as this B&B is not cheap so you would expect to be set up for the day before you set out. We stayed 5 nights, three average breakfasts, one awful St Patricks Day buffet and went elsewhere on the last day.
If the breakfast were sorted, great, as it is a recommendation is marginal, unfortunately.
