From reading the other reviews of this place, I guess I expect more of my accommodations than others or I just got a bad room.
The quick summary is that the Inn is in a good location and has a lot of charm, with a friendly and helpful staff. However, a closer inspection shows that it is in need of a facelift and it is not comfortable.
First the good things -- The Inn is very quaint. It's a beautiful old building in a row-house style where the main level is a half dozen steps or so above the ground level. The main level has high ceilings and real wood floors with nice period moldings. The furnishings on the main level are nice reproduction antiques. The Inn is also located in a beautiful and convenient area of Savannah. It really is a picturesque setting with a lot of charm.
However, my room (the "Tomochichi") did not live up to this picture. It was located downstairs beneath the main level. The ceilings were low and it is apparent that this room was added on at some point. The brick walls were nice, but one area was literally plywood that was painted to look like the surrounding brick. The beautiful wood floors on the main level are replaced by cheap vinyl in a wood pattern. With one exception, the furniture was likewise cheap. The upholstered chairs were worn and dirty and the seats were sagging. The pictures would not hang straight on the walls (probably due to the brick) - an easy fix but apparently not deemed worth the effort.
If you like a hard bed, this room would be great for you. It was like sleeping on the floor. The next day my back and neck were so sore as to require pain medication. Being downstairs was also a problem in that at all hours of the night I was awakened by people walking in and out upstairs. I'm a bit hard of hearing, so to wake me up it had to be quite loud. Needless to say I did not get a good night’s sleep.
The bathroom was dimly lit dirty with stains on the wall and a cheap hardened plastic tub/shower combination that has seen better days. The pressure in the shower was so low that I was almost straddling the faucet in order to have the water spray on me. I would have probably done better filling a glass and pouring it over me. Three minutes into the "shower" the hot water was gone.
Perhaps this room is not indicative of rest of the rooms, but it was such a bad experience I moved to a different establishment for the rest of my stay.
