We loved our room. Loved it! It was beautiful, the bed was comfortable, and the bedding and towels were plush and soft. Further, the location could not be beat. The hotel staff were also wonderfully nice. But that's where our enjoyment ended.
Issues the hotel can't help: Part of the building's charm is its age. The flip side of that is the thin walls with almost no sound barriers. Our neighbor had some pretty heated business calls during our stay. The outside also sounded unusually close (we were on the first floor).
Issues that were my fault: I didn't check the amenities list, taking for granted the room would have a refrigerator and a desk. Also, there was no workout room. I had no idea I was so spoiled to modern amenities.
Issues the hotel could work on: The hotel is "pet friendly" but it isn't actually designed to accommodate pets - no door hanger to notify staff cats were inside, and about a thousand nooks and crannies for the kitties to disappear into just when we needed to crate them. Our room had a beautiful door to the outdoor patio (nice!), but the blinds did little to block out the light. We'd have appreciated some curtains to keep out the street light at night and the sun in the early mornings.
In all, I think the East Bay Inn was charming, but we'll try something else the next time we come through Savannah.
