Foley House Inn
Ranked #7 of 30 Savannah B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2008

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay in Savannah and were more than pleased with the Foley House Inn. As others have mentioned, the location is superb and directly across from the square where Forrest Gump was filmed (the bench scene.) It is away from the honky tonk river crowd in a beautiful part of the Historic District.

We were there during a major heat wave in the middle of the week, so traffic was light and we were able to pick from a number of rooms at the Foley. We chose 203, a beautiful large room with 4 windows overlooking the terrace because it was right outside the breakfast area and nearest the front door, although a little noisy first thing in the AM when they are fixing breakfast. It was well air conditioned and decorated with period antiques without feeling "stuffy." We were able to see several rooms, and there are very nice ones with larger fabulous bathrooms upstairs. The staff was wonderful, and the hospitality services were outstanding. We loved stopping in periodically to grab a sweet tea and rest from the heat, and the hors d'oeuvres and wine in the evening were lovely. Breakfasts were very southern and plentiful served at individual tables in a cozy drawing room. (Warning . . . go on a diet before coming to Savannah, although it is a walking city so you can work it off before and after!!)

Shannon gave us great recommendations on homes to see and restaurants and shopping. My only suggestions to an otherwise perfect stay . . . a full length mirror behind a door would be nice for dressing. Foley House also has a lot of steps, and would not be good for someone who has trouble with them.

Great location. I've seen some reviewers mention the fire station. We stayed 3 nights and I never even knew there was a fire station nearby.

The exterior and furnishings are what you would expect from an historic B&B. We found the food Including evening hors d'oevres to be good and the service to be unfailingly pleasant.

When we arrived we learned our room was on the ground floor, which is more like a basement area. It was not a good choice for us. The owner upgraded us to a premium room at no charge and could not have been more gracious about it. In fact, what we took away from our 4 days was that the ownership and staff are clearly committed to ensuring that their guests are happy. What more can you ask for?

We loved our stay at the Foley Inn. The location is ideal- it is very centrally located to what you want to see in Savannah. The accommodations are great- we even stayed on the first floor in one of the less expensive rooms and still loved the ambiance and feel of the room. It was still huge and very well furnished. The bathroom was modern and very nice. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good but nothing to write home about, but that is easily made up for by the amazing desserts, hors d'oeuvres and wine offered each afternoon/evening. We would absolutely stay again. It was a great experience!

Just returned from a trip to Savannah, staying at the Foley House. The location is excellent for exploring the city and the house is lovely. We felt very comfortable lounging in the parlor and enjoying the small patios in the yard with a glass of wine at cocktail hour. The rooms were neat and tastefully decorated. The staff was warm and very willing to be of service to their guests. Breakfasts were fabulous! We had a very pleasant stay.

We had a wonderful 15th anniversary staying at the Foley house. The house was decorated beautifully. Our room was very roomy and the fireplace was a special touch. The only downfall I can think of was the bed was a little hard. Miss Mamie and Vera took good care of us at breakfast and the food was out of this world. The special touches really made our first bed and breakfast stay wonderful.
