“great location, excellent value”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The hotel is in a great location for walking to River Street and Broughton Street. The front desk is friendly. Ms. Mary, the concierge, is excellent. Our room was in the front. The noise level was not as bad as expected. We did have 1 out of 3 nights when the wind blew just the right way to carry the smell from the near-by paper mill pass the hotel. We liked the updated bathroom & furnishing (2-3 years ago). The free breakfast is convenient. You do have to pay for parking ($10). That is very reasonable for Savannah.

We were very happy with everything except the parking. I just don't think charging guests of the hotel to park is right. We always stay in Best Westerns when we go places and this is the first time we have had to pay to park. But other than that we had a great time. The concierge was very helpful. Location is great , rooms are clean and very comfortable, staff polite and very efficient. We will stay here again when in Savannah ( wont like paying for parking any better though...Parking has gone up from $10 to $12 starting 1 Mar 13).

Location of this hotel was wonderful. Parked the car on Friday for the weekend and didn't move it until we left on Sunday. Check in was fast and easy - front desk was very friendly. All the employees always had a smile and made sure they said hello and we were asked more than once if we needed anything. This was an older hotel that has been remodeled and they did a wonderful job. I would stay here again and everyone in my party loved it.

We stayed at this hotel on a Friday night. The price of the room was lower compared to some other hotels in the area. We loved Mary the concierge, she was extremely helpful. The hotel is in a great location. We could walk to restaurants on the riverwalk and were just around the corner from the market. The rooms were nicely decorated and modern, however, we could not get over the smell. We weren't aware that the hotel was pet-friendly, and therefore the reason for our room reeking like wet dog. We even bought our own air freshener. It would be nice if the hotel had pet-friendly and non pet-friendly rooms so guests could choose. I understand that the hotel can't control it but we were woken numerous times during the night to loud people outside and the smell of smoke from smokers outside. If you stay here I would recommend trying the 2nd or 3rd floor because they might be quieter.

Room Tip: Again, try choosing the 2nd or 3rd floor and bring ear plugs!

I had a bad experience on my stay Feb 8 and 9. 2013 and for some reason my comments have been removed. I can't trust a web site that would do that. I felt I was misled by staff and when I questioned the person behind the counter I was treated poorly. When I asked to speak to a manager about my concerns I was told "she's busy" and that was nothing she could do. My complaint was being charged $40.00 for a pet that was was not disclosed when I checked in (withe a print out from a pet-friendly hotel web site) - The girls at check out said it's not her fault the other person did not do their job. And now, I see my review was removed....Why should I trust TripAdvisor?

Location was fantastic, easy access to all attractions. Hotel was clean. Staff was superior, friendly, helpful, patient. Kyle the concierge is top notch! Mostly dealt with him, but Miss Mary was also extremely helpful. Can't beat the free continental breakfast for fueling up before hours of walking! Only flaws, very noisy on weekend nights as nearby bar was open until wee hours of the morning - earplugs take care of that! Pool could have been a little cleaner. We would definitely book here again!

We rented two rooms (319 & 320) facing the river, following the advice of other travellers who indicated that the rooms facing the street were a little noisier. Our stay was from 2/20 - 2/23/2013. The rooms were nice, comfortable, and clean. Being on the top floor was a plus. On the first night (early morning), we were awaken to a strange smell, which Marcia at the front desk indicated came from a paper mill close by. Thankfully, by wake up time, the winds had shifted and the smell was gone. On our last night around 1:00 am, I could hear loud people outside. Then around, 1:30 am the front desk called and asked if we had ordered a pizza, which we had not. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. We enjoyed the continental breakfast every morning. We were within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the Civic Center (where our son had an event and the reason for this visit). The location, group rate, reviews, and amenities of this hotel are what made me decide to stay here with my family.
