I think If I'm paying $100 a night that I should not have to pay to park. Never have I had to pay to park somewhere I was staying. The rooms were more noisy than other places I have stayed. This would be my last resort if I needed somewhere to stay. My husband did LOVE the RC Cola and... More

If you love kitschy hotels from a bygone era like teepee motels or the blue swallow in tucumcari, then this place will not right up your alley. Moon pies & RC cola upon checkin, retro 'googlie' furniture & phone. Be wary though, walls are kinda thin, parking is $7.50 a night & spots are so tight there's a good chance... More

The Thunderbird inn was terrific. Great service, clean tidy room ,very salty but free popcorn and a great location walking distance to the middle of the historic district and riverfront . Excellent value we enjoyed our one night stay here and would stay here again if I ever came back to Savannah.

This was our second stay at Thunderbird Inn. From our last visit two years ago, the rooms have been updated and the decor was much appreciated. In addition to being super dog friendly, the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We had one issue with our room lock and the staff promptly addressed and fixed it. Overall, the location, price,... More

We have a group that takes motorcycle trips to Savannah once or twice a year. We would not consider staying anywhere else. If they are booked, we change our dates. Everyone there goes out of their way to make sure everything is exactly as it should be. It is a great value, location and experience.

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.

Thank you for staying with us! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience. I do understand your thoughts about parking. We have so many international travelers that don't use cars in the States that we made it an add on. So rather if you are traveling with your car or without, you always get the best rate in the historic district.... More

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
