“Great Room, Great Rate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2010

Service was great. I was offered a group rate for my Roller Derby team which brought the price down to $99 per night, so we booked multiple rooms. Try to find that somewhere else in downtown Savannah!! When we got there, they marked a map for us with the hotel, sports venue, and after party locations.

Definately worth the money. Can't get a better deal for the location and the room was clean and comfy. You even get a Moon Pie on your pillow!

I had a reservation at the Thunderbird but due to some personal issues had to cancel it. The cancellation got overlooked and I was charged for two nights stay. Whe I emailed Mark (the manager) he was as nice as could be and took care of it right away.
He gave great customer service to someone who was not even a guest at his motel (yet).
I will definitely stay at the Thunderbird Inn when I visit Savannah in the spring.
Thank you Mark!

The room was very clean and new appliances everywhere. The hotel had a 50's theme, as you can tell by the name. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in in a very long time. The staff was very nice and helpful and would always tell us the best places to eat. All around great place to stay! And just down the street from historic Savannah!

The room was great. Four adult females. Bonnie, Leo and Susan made our stay extremely pleasant. We spent little time in the room. Convenient walk to all locations.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our 3 week USA road trip and were initially attracted by the retro styling, price and location not to mention the " free deluxe hot continental breakfast" Our room was pleasant enough but the mattress was dmaged on one side and the tap in the sink leaked, on informing the front desk of this we were told it would be fixed that day-nothing happened. Location was pretty good, I think some people have said it's in a bad area, it's not; just has the Greyhound Station across the road, but lots of student accommodation nearby and plans for more regeneration of the surrounding area. The "deluxe hot continental breakfast" was a joke, I'd like to know which continent considers coffee and donuts (most of which was gone by 8.30am) a deluxe hot breakfast...On arrival the Inn had old Rock'n'Roll playing over the PA system which was a nice touch, what wasn't so nice was to still have it playing at the same volume at 11.30pm! It then took 2 calls to reception to get it turned down enough so I couldn't hear it.
Overall I'd say the Thunderbird Inn does a great job of selling itself as "The Hippest Hotel in Savannah" but from our stay I'd say it was pretty uncool daddio.

From the moment we arrived at the Thunderbird Inn the front desk help, Bonny & Steph, were excellent and such a pleasure to work with! They were very informed about our event (The GA Bike Summit). They were able to help us with event locations and maps, and made our check-in and check-out go so very smooth! The rooms were clean, efficient, the beds and pillows comfortable the bathrooms could stand some updating but were very clean and the Air Conditioning system was dated, a little loud but efficient and kept the room cool.

We booked online, and were pleasantly surprised at how friendly and funky this motel was.
Our room had beautiful photos by a local art school student. We went for an evening stroll and found fascinating cultural and historical sites nearby. Bonny and Renard at the front desk were very helpful and knowledgeable about tours and services in Savannah. We will definitely recommend the Thunderbird Inn to our friends.
