My cousin and I decided to take a trip to Savannah with our two younger friends for a two night stay. Driving from Indiana wasn't too easy, limited resources and money, but we were determined to have fun. Sadly, we decided to book with Booking.com and immediately when we arrived at the hotel we received issues. Ms. Sheila Jones helped us the entire time, us being newbie travelers. We were worrying about money, and having a place to stay for a night. Sheila was very kind, even talked to the woman from booking for us. She calmed us down, told us everything was going to be alright and went out of her way to get us the rooms we needed for our stay. Also, typically hotel front desk agents wouldn't take women like us seriously, being younger, only 22. She treated us like we were adults, believing us and I appreciate that with all my heart. I will definitely come here again, and I hope she sees this someday~ <3 You really helped us Sheila!

Room Tip: All room are amazing here, no worries. Absolutely beautiful~

Although our stay at East Bay Inn was short, we were made to feel like old friends! The front desk staff, especially Sheila, was the best, calling everyone by their name. The afternoon wine, cheese and appetizers were exceptional and gave guests the opportunity to "meet and mingle". Close to riverfront and great restaurants as well as the many historic squares in the city. Will definitely stay there again!!

From the time we walked in the lobby, we felt like VIPs. We were told by the front desk clerk that they were there to take care of all of our needs and they were. Melvin the Bellman is warm, kind, and helpful. Our room was beautiful with high ceilings, lots of space for the four of us, which includes two teenagers. We enjoyed having a journal in our room to read about Savannah and to contribute to before we left. The hotel is a short walk from the riverfront where we ate dinner and did some shopping. It was a great one-night stay.

Room Tip: I don't know about the other rooms but you'll be happy on the third floor with the high ceil...

The rooms are gorgeous, the location is excellent, and the staff is not only friendly but very knowledgeable. Having already visited here before we wanted to see new things and they provided us with so much information. So glad this we picked place over a chain hotel, the experience was awesome.

Wife and I stayed at East Bay Inn while visiting Savannah, one of our favorite places to go! The location is great, close to the water, cool shops, and great places to eat! We have been going to Savannah for 3 years now and have stayed all over the historic area and this was in our top 2 of best places we have stayed! The other was a rental house up near Forsyth Park.. East Bay Inn is very pet friendly, which is great cause we love bringing our dog with us! The staff there was awesome as well! Sheila, Julie, Steve, and Melvin is who we had the most dealings with.. All of them shared great info of the city and stories of the Inn with us!! Rooms are historic to the age of building, beds are very comfy, and breakfast is a plus!! We can't wait to return to this great city!!

Our stay at East Bay Inn was wonderful! The staff there are so friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and decorated so nice., The afternoon wine and cheese party we attended had very good appetizers and excellent wine. Melvin, the bell man had set up the presentation of appetizers and they were very nicely arranged. The food was great too!!
