“Well situated, friendly hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Located a short walk to Congress Street, with its many bars, shops, and restaurants, this pleasant hotel offers spacious, well-appointed rooms and excellent service at a decent price. The lobby area has an antebellum feel, with tropical accents and a large breakfast room where guests can enjoy the usual Hampton Inn hot or cold morning fare. The rooms include a desk area, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. Bathrooms are roomy and have a large shower. Mine was showing its age a bit, with inexpertly applied caulking and some wear around the bottom of the shower door, but it wasn’t a major problem. The staff are very friendly and helpful (I was allowed to print some documents in the manager’s area). There’s a small outdoor pool and patio, plentiful parking, and free WiFi throughout the hotel. There’s no bar or restaurant, but a few amenities can be purchased at the desk. Adjoining the hotel is a gas station and mini-mart, but avoid the mini-mart: much of the merchandise has no labeled prices, especially the wines, and the somewhat ill-tempered cashier “looks up” items on a computer to give you the prices (I suspect he just makes them up on the spot depending on your tourist-like appearance). I “tried” prices on some wines and they were outrageous: $23 for a bottle that normally costs $8-9, and $16 for a bottle of really cheap stuff that usually goes for $5 in WalMart or elsewhere. Instead, do what I did: turn right out of the hotel on Oglethorpe (not left), and walk about three blocks to another gas station with a larger market, where everything is very reasonably priced (and labeled) and there’s a good selection: I bought half a gallon of Dasani water for $2 and bottle of Barefoot wine for $7. There’s also a walk-in refrigerated room for cold beer, wine, or champagne. Send a message to the unscrupulous owner of the mini-mart next to the hotel and don’t shop there. But do stay in the hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and were quite comfortable. The room we stayed in had one king size bed and had a small kitchenette with coffeemaker, microwave, small fridge, and a sink. Due to it's proximity of everything we chose to walk to City Market and River Street and not have to pay for parking once you get to your destination. Parking fees can quickly add up! Overall we had a nice stay.

This hotel was a good choice for getting the Savannah experience. Walking distance from the river and historic district, we didn't need our car except going to see a movie. The staff at this hotel is friendly and helpful, and with good attitudes and service. I will look to stay at this hotel again when I return to Savannah.

Great staff, friendly, courteous and helpful. Room were fine. Close to River St. Continental breakfast was a nice touch! We had a family reunion there and everything was nice. One drawback was the amount of on-site parking due to construction however, there was ample parking directly across the street from the hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay in this hotel. The room was well appointed, very clean, and quiet. The cable TV selection was very good. The free breakfast selection was very good and the food was well-prepared. With the exception of check-in, the staff was extremely courteous. We checked in at a very busy time and we were basically handed our key cards without a word. I asked about parking and the desk attendant said "There are two lots across the street." That was about all the information we were given. However, other desk attendants were very helpful when I asked about other things. The breakfast attendant was very friendly and the maintenance staff asked us if we were enjoying our stay every time we passed them.

The hotel is located in a convenient spot--it is about a five minute walk from the riverfront. There are several tour companies located within a few blocks. As others have mentioned, there is minimal parking in the hotel lot but there is a large parking lot right across Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. There is a $5 per night parking fee.

Overall, we were quite happy with our stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Originally booked the hotel for two nights and then decided to extend our stay for another day. The day staff was extremely friendly and helpful, recommending sites to see and places to dine. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast was the usual for this class of hotel, no complaints. All of the sites were within walking distance. We'll be back.

This hotel is located on the edge of the historic district within easy walking to restaurants and Bay St. Nice pool area and breakfast room. There is a $5 fee for self parking and unless you arrive before the crowd you will be told to self park across the street. Make sure you leave your luggage before you park. The front desk staff was very friendly and anxious to help folks during the check in process.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the pool side of the hotel, the hotel sits on the corner of two very busy streets.
