My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Everything was super clean and everyone friendly. I'm glad we booked this Hotel. If you're looking for a good price and still close to everything Savannah has to offer then this is the place for you!

Room was clean but you can see through the blinds and we got stuck in hallway of maid service, ice maker and stairs. Loud loud loud!!!! And there was still vacancies!!!! Did not understand that decision at all. We even got there at 2pm.

Very comfortable, thought would be noisy due to the entrance to the bridge but was very quiet, Very reasonably priced , and although I think paying for parking is ridiculous when you stay at a hotel compared to the bigger hotels at 25 a day ,7.50 was reasonable.

Looks intriguing from the outside. Rooms are perfectly fine, but nothing special. Not really retro or anything. Not really any kind of unique experience. No pool. Not really worth the price. I can get my own Krispy Kreme donuts.

Definitely clean and good motel style of accommodation. Pet fee is way too much. Otherwise good property. Parking should be free as that is the nature of a motel. But clean and hardwood floors are nice.

Thank you for staying with us. Thank you for the compliment on the flooring. We've been pleased with it thus far. We charge for parking because many of our guests travel in from the airport and taxi. We want to offer the best rate possible regardless of your mode of transportation. I hope you will choose us again when you... More

I saw the Thunderbird Inn being advertised on Groupon and it was less expensive than other rooms I have used. Will stay again. Brought back several found childhood memories. Loved the moon pies and RC Cola. Very clean and pleasant.

Close to downtown, rooms are great while being simply decorated (could use showerhead upgrade), and krispy kreme & coffee for breakfast. This was our second stay with them, and another satisfied stay in savannah!

I would definitely stay again. Great values, within walking distance of great restaurants and trolly tours. We did not travel with a dog, but the inn seemed very dog friendly. I loved the daily moon pies left on the pillows and the RC colas.

Very convenient location, within easy walking distance of the River Walk (note that city blocks in Savannah are much smaller than New York, it looks far on a map but it's not). There is a DOT bus station right across the street from the hotel, free air conditioned bus that has about 12 stops in the historic district. Also, we... More

Thank you for staying with us. It's awesome that you took advantage of the free DOT shuttle. It is a great way to get out of the heat for a few minutes. regards, Mark More

Neat retro style hotel close walking distance to the river walk and historical district. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was in a bad location right across from the ice machine and next to house keeping room, it sounded like a freight train was coming through the walls every time the washer would go through the spin cycle....

Thank you for staying with us! I'm sorry there was washing going on when you were in the room. We try to avoid that if possible. I'm glad you overall enjoyed the inn. I'll have our water pressure checked. That should not be an issue. More
