Dear Travelers, This was mine and my three teenage boys first trip to Savannah. We wanted it to be special. Staying at the Thunderbird Inn was all we hoped for and more. The staff is so friendly and went out of their way to help our stay be the best! We wanted to take a ghost tour and they told us about all our options and even called and set it up for us. The tour came right to the hotel parking lot to pick us up!..... and the tour recommended was a lot of fun.
The rooms are very clean and the beds are so comfortable! My boys and I slept very well! We will look forward to our next visit!

Located just across the bridge on Oglethorpe the Thunderbird Inn is cheap, clean, comfy and convenient to historical downtown Savannah. The staff is cheerful and responsive. I've had three visits there this year and they've all been first rate. Complimentary Moon Pies and RC colas! What's not to like?

This was our first visit to the The Thunderbird. We were very impressed. The staff was awesome and very friendly. The beds were much more comfortable than any Hyatt or any other "upscale" hotel. We enjoyed the retro experience and that it was soo animal friendly. We would recommend this hotel to any one visiting this area. We will definitely be back when we travel to Savanna!

Fantastic value for money. Great location within walking distance of downtown and Forrest Gumps park bench. Very helpful staff who explained what was close by and where was good to eat. Lots of character as a 60s throwback but must have been refurbished very recently. Good rooms and moon pie. Stay there - you won't regret it.

I did a "surprise" on hotwire to book the Tbird inn for a 2 night stay. It was a welcoming place with staff that was always smiling and I even got to know one of the maids fairly well--what a sweetheart! The thunderbird is really neat if you are looking for something other than your traditional holiday inn express sort of stay. It has quirky colors in the rooms, retro music, and donuts/coffee for breakfast. It is within walking distance from downtown--2 blocks and you are technically there. It is well lit for a lady to walk back after dark though i would suggest always use a buddy. The beds were comfy, TV/wifi worked well. The only odd complaint I had was that the retro music blasts through the outdoor speakers all day, so forget sleeping until 9pm unless you have earplugs. Animals are welcome so it was fun to see a little doggy running along the upper level in the morning.

Room Tip: For safety I would always opt for the second floor as the doors do lead directly out to the street.
