I have been going to Savannah for conferences twice a year for the last 15 years, and stayed in most of the Bay Street hotels. The Best Western has been my hotel of choice since it was renovated a few years ago. The staff is super-nice, the rooms are clean, and the continental breakfast is great. It is also in a perfect location if you are going to be going over the bridge to the convention center frequently. And of course, River Street is just right there. The beds are comfy, and the bathrooms spacious. The workout room and pool were nice additions from the Reno.
All of that is the good stuff. What this place has working against it are things no amount of Reno or management can fix. It has exterior corridors. Since River Street and all the bars ARE right there, you want to stay on the Bay Street side of the hotel on the 2nd or 3rd floor to cut down on the noise at 2 AM when the bars close. It is older construction, with thinner walls. You WILL get noise from outside your room. This trip, we stayed in 326, evidently next to a mechanical room. It sounded as if we were on a cruise ship right next to the engine room. They had provided a white noise machine, and it didn't keep us from sleeping.
Long story short- if you go to Savannah often, this one is by far your best bet, and a great value. However, if you are going for your one and only trip to Savannah, spend another $100, and stay in one of the higher end hotels, especially if you are a light sleeper!
