The Savannah Inn
Ranked #3 of 19 Hotels in Carolina Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Stayed for one night only, but it was a wonderful experience. The inn is old and has obviously been there for some time.-- so don't expect the latest in appliances or décor. However, very comfortable and economical for a beach vacation. The new owners are in the process of updating. Absolutely loved the location, and enjoyed the breezy porch for relaxing and enjoying the ocean view. Owner Susan and her partner Sam were very accommodating. I would definitely stay there again, and would love to spend a week there. Look for the Canadian flag! Owner Susan is from Canada!

Thank you for your review! I am glad that the Canadian flag was something that attracted you to the hotel. Many of our Canadian guests are drawn to the flag.... it's a little touch from home. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us. Hopefully you can come back and stay a little longer the next time, even though I know how long a trip that is from BC. Glad you made it back to the Pacific Northwest safely :)

All you could expect in a beach motel for the price. Very clean. Right on a perfect beach. Just a short walk to the Boardwalk and nightlife. Owners/employees were very helpful with the few questions I had. Pretty basic beach accommodations but better than expected.

We had an awesome time at The Savannah Inn and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quaint, super clean, refreshing beach get-away! The views were amazing and the entire property is perfectly situated near all sorts of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues! The room was super clean and bed was comfy! The new owners Susan & Sam went above and beyond in every sense of the way and we are counting the days for our next trip!!! This is the perfect spot for a family vacation or quick weekend trip! You won't be disappointed!!!

Room Tip: Room 22 was very spacious and the beach views are amazing!!!

We stayed here to plan out wedding in Carolina Beach! We were last mintute on reservations and they were still so accomodating!!! The room was beautiful, CLEAN and the owners were very welcoming! They haven't had the chance to restore it, however it is still great the way it is! We loved it sooooo much we stayed again a few weeks later and will continue! It is fun to see what they are working on from week to week! You will not be dissappointed with customer service and they go out of their way to make sure! The beach is beautiful and flat,easy to access! Pool is cute and clean! The rooms in front are cool and you can watch the kids! Thanks again for being so flexible and understanding with our crazy short trips! Good luck with the success of this new adventure!

I think we are going to have to rename room #21 after you two! We thoroughly enjoyed having you both stay with us again :) I am glad that we were able to accommodate you again on short notice. Thank you for thinking of staying with us again, and good luck with your wedding! Hopefully we will see you again at The Savannah Inn before too long :)

We returned to our favorite Carolina Beach hotel to find new owners. The room was clean and had new pillows. Although there are some maintenance issues, they inherited them with the purchases of the property. The new owners promise to restore the hotel to the one we fell in love with 15 years ago. We are wishing them many years of success and are looking forward to watching the turn around as we will be back often.

Susan, thank you for your excellent feedback! As promised, we are committed to returning The Savannah Inn back to its former charm :) In fact, yesterday we removed the window air conditioning unit that wasn't fitting properly and installed a brand new heat/cool unit in room #14. So no more wind whistling through the window! And when you return to that room you will love the shiny, brand new a/c unit!

Don't be swayed by previous reviews. This establishment has new owners! Room was outstandingly clean, fresh pillows and lovely beachy decor. Fully equipped kitchen is perfect for dining in. We will definitely be returning to this wonderful little gem by the sea and wish the new owners many years of success and happiness.
