I stayed here during the 4th of July week with my husband and three teens, ages 14, 16 and 17. It was pretty perfect. We stayed in the second floor apartment which is two bedrooms and two baths and it was plenty roomy for all of us. It had everything we needed and everything worked great. Most of all, it... More

The downtown and River Street part of Savannah is a fun location to visit. It can sometimes be a struggle finding centralized and reasonably-priced lodging. On top of that, parking around the area isn't always easy. The Oglethorpe Lodge addresses all of these concerns, and in a great way. The entrance is located in an alley, next door to a... More

We stayed on the second floor in suite 902 (three siblings) It's a two bedroom, but we used the sofa as a third bed. Three televisions, great AC, nice water pressure, clean, abundance of towels, shampoos, soaps etc. We were very pleased with this suite and highly recommend it. The restaurant at the base of the stairs has great food... More

After spending 4 days in a Holiday Inn in Charleston, this spacious room in Savannah was a God-send. The location is great, across the street from River Street and the rooms were great! Within the first few hours of being there my wife was already saying we should make this lodge an annual tradition. The down side is there are... More

We have stayed in hotels in Savannah many times. This time we opted for a vacation rental, and Oglethorpe Lodge was absolutely perfect! We had a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment decorated in the colonial style. The kitchen was fully equipped, although we didn't use it much. With so many great restaurants in Savannah, why cook in? The location... More

As others have said - location, location, location. This place is an awesome spot right in the heart of Savannah that was great for exploring...and the place was bigger than my apartment back home. This is more airbnb style condo living with a fully furnished apartment, a big living room, and everything was super nice and well maintained. Checking in... More

The location of the Oglethorpe Lodge can't be beat. The free private parking spot in such a prime location was pretty awesome as well. The suite itself was lovely and incredibly spacious. My only complaint is that we had a rather rowdy group of guys staying below us who would come back slamming doors and generally making a ruckus at... More

If you are coming to Savannah you must stay at the Oglethorpe Lodge. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen, living room, and outdoor patio. There is one parking space included and concierge service available. The Lodge is next to the river and super convenient for the entire historic district. We absolutely loved staying here and...

We stayed three nights in room 902. I must say it was a perfect location to walk to river street, resturants, tours, city market, and even walked to forsythe park.
