“Great deal, great location, and great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I booked our room from directly from the HIExpress website and got a standard queen room for $99 - mid week. Hotel is right downtown, walking distance to everything! Clean, well appointed room, and quiet. These discounted rooms are on the backside of the hotel, the view was of the alley and parking garage. Not ideal, but luckily we didn't spend much time in the room, so view didn't bother us. The hotel is new or perhaps recently renovated, it's clean all the way around. Front desk staff were very friendly. Excellent pool/jacuzzi and patio on the rooftop with views overlooking the river! We self-parked (rather than the $20 valet fee) in the garage next door for only $7 per day. Will definitely stay here again.

I always try to find a Holiday Inn Express when I travel, because I have never been disappointed in their service. This hotel is no exception. It is clean and comfortable, with an excellent location. It is within walking distance of all the downtown shops and restaurants and provides very easy access to River Street. Valet parking is convenient and breakfast is free! What's not to love?!

My bride and I stayed here during a long road trip. The room was clean, comfortable, and staff were courteous...nothing spectacular, but very nice. It would have been nice to stay longer, because there is a rich history in this area.

I started at the Hyatt for a conference and it was nice. I switched to Holiday Inn becasue the Hyatt had so much noise from the river front with vendors and men singing and playing trumpet and the City Hall clock clanging every 30 minutes beside my window I had to move!
Holiday Inn Express is great! Breakfast is good. There is a bar in the evenings with a nice lounge and a fireplace for chilly nights. My room is spotless with a microwave and fridge...Hyatt had neither in their rooms! The bathroom is spotless with great tile showers where as the Hyatt bathroom was worn with a dingy tub and those basic shower curtains that wrap around you as you shower! It was only $119 and night directly across from the river! Wonderful gem!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the parking garage

Down here in Savannah Georgia on Military orders. This Hotel has a very friendly staff, very clean rooms, a pool and hot tub on the roof, and a bar downstairs. It is within walking distance of anything you could ever want to do in Savannah. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place at an affordable rate!

Room Tip: Face the River! Wonderful view!

The physical facility isn't anything to write home about, average Holiday Inn Express. But this was our second visit to Savannah and since our first stay at this Holiday Inn Express went so well, we decided to stay there again. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, greeting you like they are family the minute you walk in the door. Even the valet parking attendant goes out of his way to be friendly regardless of whether you are using valet parking or not. Rooms are clean. Ours overlooked Bay Street and was comfortable. Breakfast was average, but the cinammon rolls somehow tasted better here than at other locations. Will stay here again on our next trip. It is just so darned convenient to everything in the Historic District and the folks are so nice! Price was good, too. And a hint -- the city parking garage right next door is a great value.

I am a frequent business traveler who always stays at Priority Club hotels typically Holiday Inn Express. The outside of the building and lobby areas have the typical Holiday Inn Express feel and are very modern. The rooms at this location are another story. The rooms appear to be much older than the outside if thats possible. The furniture, faucets etc are very aged. On the positive side, the patio and river views are nice however be aware that rooms on the side that face the river are quiet noisy from the road noise below. I loss several hours of sleep due to this however upon requesting to change rooms in the morning the problem was resolved. Great staff, not so great rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river have a great view but are very noisy due to road noise below.
