Quaint, historic Planters Inn…what you would expect from a small boutique hotel. We opted for the non-refundable budget friendly online price, which was very reasonable. Staff was efficient, friendly and accommodating. Our room and bathroom were small but clean with a charming 4 poster bed. No maid service but you could ask the desk for whatever you needed. This Inn was short on amenities with only water and coffee in the lobby. It is located directly across the street from a parking garage, so you have the option to valet or self park. We used the valet but had easy access to the car when needed. Great location! Short walk to the Riverfront. Next door to the Olde Pink House and close to shops and restaurants. Our one complaint was the mattress in room 203. It was, without doubt, the worse mattress we have ever slept on, anywhere. It was not only soft but lumpy, which means it was probably old or inexpensive, or both. We did not complain because as we had already unpacked and did not plan to spend time in the room. Thinking we could weather the bad mattress for three nights was a mistake. It was so uncomfortable and did not provide one decent nights sleep. Even with that inconvenience, we would definitely go back to Planters Inn but not before confirming the mattresses have been updated.…
Stayed at the Planters Inn for the first time. This is a delightful hotel. Historic, clean and located in the heart of the historic district. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were decorated nicely and the price was good. We will be back on our next visit.
A great boutique hotel with lots of charm! The valet and front desk staff are very helpful. My husband even surprised me with flowers in our room and he said the staff were so excited to do so! They worked with the florist across the street to make sure they were in our room at check in. Clean and very large bathrooms. Location couldn’t be better, everything was within a few blocks. This isn’t a large brand hotel so maybe that’s where people compare their standards to from the negative reviews?! It’s a quaint boutique hotel with a southern comfort feel. Definitely recommend to get the full Savannah hospitality experience!
My wife and I stayed four nights and were pleased. They’re still not making up the rooms, but we knew that up front and were OK with it. We saw no dirt (I think some reviewers mistake old for dirty), smelled no odors, the elevators worked fine, the TV and Wi-Fi were fine, and the staff was friendly and helpful. They don’t offer breakfast but the best breakfast in Savannah, Henry’s, is 30 seconds away, 15 if you run. This is an older property full of character, in an utterly perfect location. You want shiny and new and lots of amenities, look for other options. You want a solid place to stay, come here.
The location was terrific for wandering about Savanah. There were many convenient options for dining out and the market and waterfront are very nearby. Unfortunately, they weren't currently providing a breakfast but there was a decent breakfast spot nearby.
Loved this hotel, the staff was attentive and professional and kind! We will be back and i highly recommend this hotel! Easy access to river front and many historical places! The valet parking was quick and east also!
The staff is welcoming & helpful. We arrived early & only waited a few minutes for our room. The room was lovely, we would stay there again. A pianist played in the lobby Friday & Saturday evenings - so wonderful. Room was immaculate, comfortable. Valet parking is a plus.
I’m writing this as I sit on our eastward facing balcony ( rm 502 ) overlooking Reynolds Park and contemplating just how this Inn must have been years ago to attain even a modicum of a following . I strongly agree with the others who note the lack of even basic maid service to empty waste bins or resupply soap or toilet paper.
We arrived at the hotel at 3 pm. We were told the room (207) wasn't clean and it would be a few minutes. At that point, we were told by 3 different people (including the valet) that check-in is at 4}. So we took a seat in the lobby and watched while every single person who went to the dest to check in got their room and was checked in (no one said 1 time that check-in was at 4). What was supposed to be a few minutes turned into 1 hour. We sat there waiting for 1 hour! During that time NOT 1 person came over to us to update us on the progress of our check-in. Finally, after an hour my husband went over to the counter and asked what is the problem. The man he spoke to looked confused and said let me go and check on room 207. He came back and said oh room 507 is available and we can check you in. So we sat there for 1 hour only to be given a room that was ready all that time. We will never stay there again. You have been warned.…
The room was just so -so for the money you spend. The TV was very old and most everything in the room is old. The bathroom had been remodeled..... nice shower and pretty good lighting. Had to request for the room to be cleaned and extra towels. The bed was comfortable. Yes, we could hear the street traffic. Go stay in the Emmeline right down the street.
