“Great location, short walk to river and downtown attractions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stayed in a one bedroom suite (502), very nice decor and roomy with full size refrigerator and well equipped kitchen. There is also nice view of the City Hall. The only complaint is one might hit one's head on the wall mounted TV in the bedroom. It is located right above the end of the bed and there's little room to go around. It's easy to bump into the TV especially if one gets up during the night to use the bathroom. There is also distinct smell of bleach in the bathroom which might be irritating to some. Overall, it's very comfortable place to stay, very conveniently situated and all the staff are very courteous and helpful. I would stay here again.

Our third trip to Savannah, one of our favorite cities, was made just that much better by our stay in the Studio Homes at Ellis Square. As Blue Green owners, we are never exactly sure what to expect of our accomodations. This small, upscale resort turned out to be almost perfect. Situated in the heart of the historic district, two blocks off River Street, and within walking distance to just about everything to see in Savannah, our one bedroom on the third floor was beautifully appointed. Spotlessly clean, the contemporary decor included sleek furniture, stainless steel fixtures and appliances, flat screen tv's in both living room and bedroom, and a large bath with huge walk-in shower. Granite counter tops, stone tile, and luxurious linens, even on a queen, not king-sized bed, still made for a level of comfort we have not always encountered in Blue Green properties.

We found the staff to be professional and helpful with a bell captain/valet at the door to greet us every time we entered the lobby. Valet parking is $20/day but worth every penny as parking in this historical and tourism-driven city is very much at a premium. While guests enter the resort on the ground floor, check-in takes place on the 7th floor lobby. Both the ground floor and the 7th floor lobbies are small, but well-appointed. While checking in, guests can walk out onto the open air patio that looks over the historic district. A gas barbecue grill and patio furniture are available for guest use. Coffee is always available on the 7th floor as is chilled water. Our room had a small balcony, but alas! no outdoor furniture. Dining in our unit was at the kitchen bar so other than bar stools, there were no chairs (with the exception of an upholstered living room chair) to even borrow for sitting on the balcony. A couple of outdoor chairs and small cocktail table would have made for great city-watching in the evening.

Ultimately, the Studio Homes at Ellis Square are perfect for adults and couples wanting to enjoy all Savannah has to offer. I would not recommend this resort for young children as the entire resort is small and compact. Our unit took advantage of every inch of space without much left over for any type of play area for kids. The streets surrounding the resort are busy with traffic. For grownups, it is quiet, elegant, and relaxing.

This is without a doubt the nicest accommodations we have had at any Bluegreen facility. Great location and suite was very nicely decorated and maintained. Everything was within walking distance in the downtown and river districts. Staff was friendly and very helpful.

One, the building on the street is only about ten feet wide at the most. It is located right next to My Pie. If you are not careful you will walk by or drive by this place. We used Google Street view and it helped us to find it. We found the directions on the Bluegreen ( our time share) website to be very accurate. Two, you may want to avoid checking in on a Sunday. There were 16 units that check out when we were checking in. We called twice asking to check in early but were unable. When we went to check in we were told we may have to wait past four which is regular check in time. That has never happen in 15 years with Bluegreen. The office manager did the right thing and upgraded us to the Presidential Suite. He told us that it took housekeeping up to two hours to clean one room. Three, don't let them talk you into getting valet parking especially if you don't plan drivng more than once a day. Valet Parking costs $20 a day or you can park your own car for $16 a day. Everything is within easy walking distance of Studio Homes and we only got our car to go to Tybee Island. We save $16 in four days and had no problems with public parking. Even though we got off to a rocky start the office manager, housekeepers, and maintenance man were all very friendly. Apartment was nice size and was clean. Hope to go back in the near future.

Highly recommend this hotel for any family with kids who are tired of cramming into a small hotel room. Our room (which was the 1 bedroom) was like a small apartment, which included a really nice kitchen (including full fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher) and a pull out sleeper couch. Our room here was a bit more pricier then other hotel rooms in the area, but given the extra space and the ability to be able to cook breakfast for the family instead of going out and spending $50 on it, it definitely was worth the extra $.

Hotel location is ideal, walking distance to a ton of restaurants and in a really safe area.

Hotel staff was very friendly, and they have a nice guest lounge on top floor with free coffee and bottled water.

Valet parking is a bit pricey at $25 a night, so instead I just parked in the underground garage that is literally right next door for a rate of $18 a night.

I just returned from a 4 night girls' get away. We booked this property based on the on-line reviews and photos - which can be scary - however, we were not disappointed. We had a two bedroom unit with 2 fulls baths - very modern amenities with full kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and we were all content. The location is perfect - you're just a hop, skip and jump to River Street and lots of great shops, bars and restaurants. I loved Savannah and if I ever come back, would book this same property!

Although not easiely found, the location of this Bluegreen associated property is perfect for touring this beautiful city. Having the check in desk on the seventh floor is a bit quirky but the rooms are very well appointed. We were lucky enough to get the presidential suite, wow what a view and what a room(s). Huge kitchen, wrap around terrace, king beds with very comfortable bedding. Very cooperative staff, valet parking.

Room Tip: Grab the Presidential Suite, you will not be disappointed.
