SpringHill Suites Savannah Midtown
Ranked #74 of 114 Hotels in Savannah
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

I've lived in Savannah, so I know humidity. The room was dank and smelled funny. The airconditioner was old. We were either too cold or sweating. You could feel the moisture in the sheets. The moisture made it difficult to sleep.

The housekeepers did a decent job of putting lipstick on a pig. The room was clean for the most part. The rooms are sorely in need of updates.

The price was better compared to downtown savannah. But for the price at this hotel, I expected alot more. We should have paid the extra $50 or so and stayed downtown. The rooms were kind of gross.

SAVSH, General Manager at SpringHill Suites Savannah Midtown, responded to this reviewResponded August 6, 2012

Dear travelturtle4,

I would like to thank you for yur comments about your recent stay. I understand about the humidity, we have had heat indexes well over 105 degrees for the past few weeks. We do have a unit that removes moisture from the building and we check the building humidity twice daily and it usually is around 48% to 51%. In any event we are sorry to hear that you were not comfortable. We are one of the older SpringHill Suites and we are looking forward to an upgrade/renovation soon. If there was an issue with your air unit we would have immediately remedied that for you. I do hope that we could have an opportuntuy to take care of you again as we do strive to provide a "home away from Home" to all of our guests. I do apologize for you have a less than great experience and hope you will consider us again when in the area.

Warmest regards,
Howard Loggins
General Manager

I needed a room last minute on a Saturday night and got the last room this hotel had available. The room was fine, it served my needs.

The only complaint I had was that the sheets kept coming off the mattress all night long, as if they were a size too small for the bed. Every time that happened I woke up and re-made the bed.

Noise travels from the adjoining room as do smells. Our adjoining room decided to make food at midnight and we had just gone to bed. Our room smelled the rest of the night.

We stay at Marriots all the time, this one was about average. Could use some updating and deep cleaning plus some new sheets.

Breakfast was really good, however and included in the rate. We enjoyed the freshly made waffles.

Hotel was in a nice area, although it was very clean i feel like the rooms were small for the price, but everything else made up for that. Staff was very nice and attentive. The hotel had a full complimentary breakfast each morning. The lady who tended the breakfast buffet was awesome. I felt like i was at my mothers house. She was a sweet heart. She had the best spirit about her. I had to go back to the kitchen before we left to give her a hug and tell her she was the cherry on top for the hotel. Hotel was located in a very nice area, every eating place that you can imagine from burgers to sushi. 2 nice malls, outlet stores,movie theatre, skating rinks, entertainment for kids,adult entertainment etc. we were only about 20 mins from Tybee Island. I looooove tybee island. Good family oriented beach, not a party beach.
We can not wait to go back.

We stayed here because I love the Marriot chain and it's location outside of downtown Savannah makes it cheaper than staying downtown. We had no problems whatsoever with anything at this hotel. We checked in late at night and had no problems with that. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly. The morning breakfast was fine as well. I'm not sure what people expect when they stay at a Springhill Suites - it's not the Ritz so it shouldn't be compared with one. Next time we come to Savannah, we're definitely staying here again.

We just stayed here June 29 -July 1, 2012. It was ok but not what I expected. It seems the rooms need to be updated from what I've seen in other hotels by the same name.
I called the Marriott customer complaint number first thing Monday morning and was told to call the hotel and talk with the manager. I left Monday going out of town again and just got back today to the same issue I left with on Monday. Details below:

First off, they have this ridiculous policy about payments. I personally don't like hotels or any companies for that matter having access to my credit cards or debit card. I "attempted" to pay cash once I arrived but I was told that if I pay cash I would have to leave an EXTRA $100 with them. For what ? "Incidentals" I was told. Incidentals??? There's nothing in the rooms to buy, who doesn't have a cell phone now days to make calls, and I definitely don't want anything out of those rooms. The towels smelled like some cheap detergent. GIve me a break.
And here's the most ridiculous part, they don't give you the money back when you check out, they mail you a check. You got to be kidding me. So needless to say, I was NOT going to give them extra money to mail me back at their leisure. And furthermore, it's not as if they do a walk through with you when you check out so as far as I'm concerned, they could charge you for something after you are long gone.
So I unwilling gave the girl my credit card and told her that I would still pay cash when we leave. I was told that she would put it on my account but wouldn't charge anything on it.
Saturday morning, we woke up to water running in the bathroom. I got up because it sounded like the shower was on, but it was water coming from the fire sprinkler above the tub. We didn't know if it was coming from the room above or what. So I immediately called the front desk and they "acted" concerned and said that they would immediately call for someone to come and check the room. And my concern was that we were not dressed so no one could come in at that time. So we were very much inconvenienced at 8:00 in the morning by having to get up and get dressed. We could not take a shower because I don't know where the nasty water is coming from. Also we noticed that there is water damage in that room above the bed.
Once we were dressed, we packed our things to leave the room and went to the front desk. The manager was there by then and stated she would put us in another room. Ok, why did I have to ask her if they would do anything for our inconvenience because this shouldn't happen in the Marriott or anywhere for that matter.
On Sunday (check out time) why was my card charged for the stay? I called down to the front desk and they say "Oh no, it's not charged on your card. I can handle that right now." I paid cash when I left.
Ok, fast forward to Thursday and I am returning home from another trip we took for the 4th of July, checked my accounts and why is $185 hold still on my credit card from the SpringHill Suites Savannah Midtown? My room charge was less than that. Now this is why I don't like to give hotels my credit card. You got my money and still got a hold on my card? I called the hotel and still not getting any logical answers, asked to speak with the manager and got his voice mail. Called back , told the girl my issue and that I needed the manager to call me. I usually get a customer sastisfaction survey by email everytime I stay at the Marriott. Why haven't I received one for this stay.
To each is own, but NEVER AGAIN for me and anyone that I can tell.

Dear ATLtraveler39,

We do strive to meet all guest expectations. We are required to follow policy in regards to cash and we typically mail the refund check with twenty four hours of the guest departure. The leak you describe was due to a guest above overflowing the tub and not within hour control. The fund on your card was a pending authorization and should be off and was probably on longer due to the July fourth holiday. I hope you continue to enjoy your travels; we are one of the original SpringHill Suites and should be updated in the near future. We thank you for staying with us and thank you for your understanding and comments.
Warmest Regards,

Howard Loggins
General Manager

I stayed here and had no issues. It is much cleaner then the other Springhill location out @ I-95 Gateway as i have stayed at both. I had a first floor room, it was clean and comy and well finished. No complaints here and you cannot complain about the price it was a great deal!

Room Tip: First Floor was a good location and was very clean although you could sometiumes hear people walking...

Came in last night and found a 4 inch roach roaming around the bathroom. For a customer who loves the Marriott brand I thought this was apalling.
