Reviewed June 3, 2014

We enjoy our time in Savannah and places to stay can be pretty expensive. This place is well managed and attentive to it's customers. I can only imagine the people complaining were expecting a 5 star resort, which is absurd. This is one of the nicer Best Westerns for the price and location. The price does vary with seasonal demands if you can beat the surrounding hotels of similar quality I recommend them.

This hotel is in an excellent location for visiting and exploring historic Savannah, Georgia. Restaurants, bars, shopping and, of course, the historic locations of Savannah are all within walking distance. I was able to leave the hotel, walk for a few hours and return, quickly, to comfort and privacy. The room was excellent, as were the staff. I highly recommend a stay!

The staff were excellent and efficient with our check-in and checkout. The rooms were clean and well maintained with very comfortable mattresses. The lobby and our room was tidy and the décor was cheerful. All the staff were friendly, courteous, approachable and helpful, always wanting to ensure our stay was perfect. The greatest thing about staying here it was within walking distance to everything

The staff was very friendly & helpful. The baths were updated. The noise level minimal. Over all I rate this a very good place to stay. The beds were very comfortable. The staff very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

Rooms were updated,very comfortable and clean. Hair dryer and iron in room. Staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and in room wi-fi, they do have public computers in the lobby. There's also a pool and gym. Yes, there is some street noise--Bay St. seems to be the major truck route through the city, but most of the historic district hotels are on this street,and that is the city planners' fault-not the hotel's. We had planned to take our dog, but ended up not taking Fido. I did not see any pets while there, but there is a small grass area and quiet street in the back of the hotel for walkies. Hotel is 3 stories, but there is an elevator.
I don't know why some reviewers could not find restaurants, there are many within short walking distance. And most if not all of the hotels/inns in the historic district charge the daily parking fee.

Room Tip: I was told at front desk all king rooms face Bay St. Back side rooms (double beds?) may be quieter...

On my home from from business meeting, decided to take a night off from the family. Room was okay,on the dirtier side. Looked like someone had used the bathroom in there or house keepers didn't Finnish cleaning.? It was very noisy at night on the first floor hall close to doors.

This hotel is just a run-of-the-mill hotel with no outstanding features. And the price was on the high side. Breakfast wasn't worth the time. The scrambled eggs were cold and seemed to have been made the night before. Looking for a place to have dinner within walking distance was futile. Or at least that was the impression I got from the front desk. we ate a hotel across the street and were their only customers. It was obvious from the food and price.
