Rang on the Friday before leaving UK to check reservation and parking, got there on the following Wednesday to find no reservation - not sure how yes we have your reservation for 1 night turned into a cancellation - as it was February they found us another room.
The room wasn't large, but it was pleasant, clean and comfortable and at the front of the building. There is traffic at all times as this road leads to the interstate. I had noticed the white noise generator when we got in to the room and realise that it might be useful for some people - traffic noise doesn't bother us. If it bothers you, try getting a room at the rear of the building.
There is a $15 a day parking fee, but as it is on the edge of the Historic District (easy walking to the riverside and the squares) and you can park until 5pm on the day of departure it doesn't seem a lot to pay.

Room Tip: Try a room at the back away from West Bay Street must be quieter!

A good location, we were able to walk everywhere we went. The rooms are very clean and pretty decor. The bathroom is spacious. We didn't have a problem, like there seems to be with most, of the room feeling or smelling wet. The staff seemed professional. We didn't need anything extra or have much interaction with them though. I guess the only thing I disliked, was their pillows :)

Thank you for your Trip Advisor Review. I am glad you enjoyed the hotel but very disappointed to hear that you didn't enjoy the pillows. Please let us know when you're returning in the future, and I'm sure we can find another type of pillow to suit your needs.

Thank you,

This hotel is located on Bay St, the outer edge of the Historic district. Its busy there and a little noisy during the day but who stays in their room during the day on vacation. The location is within walking distance throughout the Historic district, market square and to River St. The room was adequate but the bed was not comfortable. Hot continental Breakfast was very good. Be warned - there is a $15.00 a day parking fee.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I am so glad you enjoyed the great location, and free breakfast at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Savannah Historic District. I do however apologize for the noisy streets, and I am sorry if it interfered with your stay in Savannah. I hope you are able to visit us again in the near future. I am excited to announce that over the next few months the hotel will be completing the guest room renovations to include all new beds, bedding package, draperies, plantation shutters (in our beta tests we have seen noise complaints reduced by as much 50%), and that’s in addition to the new flooring and 37” LED TV’s!

Thank you,

The location of this hotel is excellent. It is within walking distance of almost everything, e.g., The Market, River Street, Savannah Theatre, The only problem is the noise, especially on the weekend, but perhaps the location makes up for it. I dislike the idea of paying $15.00 for parking. The room is costly, why do I have to pay $15.00 to park my car? Breakfast is excellent.

This hotel is right in the historic district of Savannah and walking distance to just about anywhere you would want to go. The tours offered were well worth going. While we were there the weather was pretty cold and rainy, but that gave us the opportunity to take two tours; the First African Baptist Church and a shuttle tour that took us not only through the historic district but also through a lot of Savannah. Our guide on the shuttle was Bob-a-loo (Bob Register) and he was awesome! The tour at the church was VERY nteresting and I would recommend everyone going to Savannah do this tour. The hotel was clean and newly remodled. You can leave your car there and not have to pay parking elsewhere.

Hotel was conveniently located near restaurants with most attractions just a short walk away. Hotel was clean but noisy during the day. Bay Street has a lot of traffic during the day and it serves as your alarm clock in the morning. Nights quiet down and we were able to get a good rest. I would have rated the hotel higher if it weren't for the noise but when picking a hotel you have to take that into account. We had no problems during our stay. The room was nice and felt clean. Wi-Fi booted up quickly and tv had a lot of stations available. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room faced Bay Street, perhaps a different location would have been quieter.

We have done the B and B thing in Savannah and opted to stay in the Best Western on Bay Street in the historic district of Savannah. Plusses: they take pets, with a modest fee, the parking is in their lot, also at a modest fee, and the rooms are quite nice. The location is wonderful, right across from River Street or the City Market. Minuses: They charge for most things, are a bit more expensive than the average motel and were repairing the main floor when we were there. The breakfast buffet is terrific and the help is nice.
