Lovely Inn, pretty room, great location. The bathroom was very small, towels not very soft, lighting was very dim in bedroom and bathroom and sparse initial supply of shampoo and soap. Had to ask for extra. The breakfasts were delicious as was the happy hour each day. Duane was very helpful and very nice.
I thoroughly enjoyed the quaintness and peaceful surroundings. I wish I had had more time to enjoy the dining and the court yard. Although, I was not able to eat there, they were more than accommodating in getting a morning snack together for me. Would absolutely do it again.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Inn this past week/weekend. Lee the Innkeeper was very welcoming and always available if we needed anything or even to sit and visit with us on the patio. The breakfast, snacks and other goodies were delicious!! The Inn itself is like no other - it is simply beautiful! We look forward to our next visit to Tybee and to stay at the Tybee Island Inn once again. -Charles and Kellie Cunningham
Located at the southwest corner of Forsyth Park, on a quiet street with easy parking, this is an excellent choice at a reasonable price, away from the hustle of the downtown area. Maurice and Glenn are gracious hosts, providing a great family style breakfast where guests can chat freely and get to know each other. There is a Keurig coffee maker and sherry available all day, a double-sized parlor, and a lovely outdoor garden. The tour companies will pick up and return guests to the house, so we hardly used our car the two days we spent there. The nearest Dot bus stop is about 5 minutes walk, which is a free service that covers the historic district. The river is about 20~25 minutes walking distance. The rooms are clean and well stocked with the usual amenities, including free wi-fi, satellite TV, toiletries and adequate storage space. All in all, an excellent value.
We stayed for two days and had a wonderful visit to Savannah. Very comfortable room and excellent breakfast in the morning. Met with fellow travelers to share experiences in Savannah and get tips for further adventures. Maurice is a wonderful host and helped to make our vacation memorable.
Thus was just a quick weekend getaway for us & we couldn't have chosen a better spot for us and our two pups. The Carriage House was beautifully decorated and spotless. Cleaner than my own home!! Relaxing place to spend late evenings inside & out, with the beautiful gardens all around our apartment. Unfortunately, we only got to meet one of the hosts, but Keith was very nice and gave us his expert advise about places to go & things to do. I would highly recommend The Galloway House, especially if you're traveling with your fury babies. Thanks again to both of our hosts for a very quick, but great weekend!
My husband and I very much enjoyed our two-night stay at Park Avenue Manor. We were welcomed warmly by Maurice who explained all the amenities and gave us great tourist and restaurant recommendations. Everything was immaculate and beautiful, and the breakfasts were delicious. We had to switch rooms for the second night, and the staff moved all our belongings for us so that when we came back after our day out, everything was ready for us in the new room, the Georgia Suite. The location was wonderful for walking through Forsyth Park and the historical district of Savannah down to the waterfront. If we ever make it to Savannah again, we will surely consider staying here again, as well as recommend it to friends.
Absolutely adored the southern hospitality & feel at the Dresser Palmer House! We stayed in the Wisteria room which was more secluded and had 2 private entrances off of the house which was nice if returning late! Breakfast was to die for! My fiance has a peanut allergy and they made sure to ask of any allergies, restrictions, and even your dislikes to prepare! Loved more of the at-home feel with being at a bed and breakfast that only had a handful of guests vs a busy hotel! The staff was phenomenal when my fiance and I got engaged on vacation and even left a bottle of champagne with glasses & a congratulatory note in the room for us! Never wanted to leave!!!
My mom and I stayed at Tybee Island Inn and had a lovely experience. We had the "Lighthouse" room in the attic, which had two beds and its own balcony -- a real plus since my mom is a smoker and smoking was allowed on the balcony. The room was spacious, clean and was very cool and comfortable despite being at the top of the house! It was very quiet as well and the breakfasts were outstanding! Only one block from a beautiful and uncrowded beach (at least in mid-May). The only thing to know is that Tybee Island has very little in the way of restaurants, so finding a decent place to eat that wasn't all about greasy fried foods was kind of hard to find.
Superb 3-night stay. The meals were ultra delicious and very creative. Certainly exceeded our expectations from having stayed at other B&Bs. The large property made it nice to ramble around and enjoy the uniqueness of the area. The room was private and quiet; a definite plus! Would definitely stay here again.
We had a great trip to Savannah and were able to easily walk from this inn to all sites, stores and restaurants within the historical district. The staff was welcoming, pleasant and sincerely interested in helping us with every aspect of our stay.The cont. breakfast was way better than we expected and we certainly appreciated this. The room was OK, though the carpet was stained and in need of a good shampooing. We felt safe at this location. Would return to this inn, but would ask for a room with a clean carpet.
We were delighted with our choice of The Dresser Palmer House. While there for 5 nights we met wonderful people during the evening wine social and the delicious morning breakfasts. The staff was excellent and friendly. The front porch was relaxing after a day of walking the historical areas. The décor was antique lovely and the bathrooms were modern and updated. We would love to return some day.
Compared to the other two inns we stayed at while in Savannah, the 17Hundred90 was the best value. Room was clean and spacious. Unfortunately we didn't experience anything paranormal while staying in room 204.
We chose the Park Manor because of its perfect location on a quiet residential street steps to the magnificent Forsyth Park, short walk to good restaurants, and ten minute shuttle bus to downtown historic area. That was good enough; however, we soon realized this B&B was different than the many we have visited before. Our hosts Maurice and Glenn has anticipated every detail for making guests comfortable, entertained, and safe. This beautifully decorated Victorian home is a study of efficient use of space and is very well maintained. From Maurice's elegant breakfasts to our evening wine in the courtyard, this was truly an extraordinary experience in travel accommodations. Savannah has a real treasure here!
Couldn't ask for improvement in any area. Jim greeted us before we had gotten to the entrance and the accommodations left us wanting for nothing. Will definitely return and recommend to others. Can't wait until we're back.
The staff was wonderful, helpful, can't say enough good things about them. The food was not what I would consider good at all but to be fair I don't like french toast nor shrimp and grits but the scrambled eggs were tastless and they never seem to understand what we were asking for. As for the room it was a standard size room and typical for a b&b however if you looked under the bed there was a very thick layer of dust under the bed & the bench at the end of the bed there was crumbs from previous guest nor had the mantle been dusted as when I swept my hand across it dust went everywhere. The bathroom appeared to be clean however the grout was turning black from mildew in spots which is very uninviting. Would I stay here again probably not.
The inn was clean and in an excellent location (easy walk to multiple beaches, biked to the light house and down town easily). Bikes were available for rental ($10/day, same as the private bike rental places around). I stayed in the Sea Cabin. The bed was great. The soaking tub was awesome. But the location was not great; it's on the main floor right next to the kitchen and guest kitchen, so lots of noise during the morning from the cooking and in the evening/thru out the day from guests. The breakfast on the first day (Sunday) was amazing (shrimp and grits, stuffed french toast), but wasn't great the second day (some add pistachio sauce).
I got more than I expected. I stayed in the building across the street from the main building. It had its own sitting room. The room as comfortable, but walk into the bathroom! Huge garden tub AND a shower! Then, I opened to the door to a terrace with a couple of chairs and table. I loved it! I had lunch at the restaurant, and it was also wonderful. The bar was fun, and I felt like I was at Cheers! I didn't get to see any ghosts, but I will definitely be staying again.
This was our 3rd time staying at Forsyth Park Inn. I always is a pleasure and treat to stay here. staff is always willing to assist in any way. The only negative I have (and it has nothing to do with Forsyth) is that while out on the patio enjoying the sights and sounds. almost every time there was a guest talking on there cell phone, could not enjoy the patio anymore.
I searched on "Bring Fido" site for a dog friendly place to stay in Savannah and found The Galloway House. My arrival was delayed because I was literally stopped in traffic on I-95. So, needless to say, by the time I arrived at The Galloway House, I was a bit frazzled. Keith welcomed me, showed me (and Jasper) to the Carriage House upstairs appartment which has been beautifully refurbished. The courtyard is lush and beautiful. I defrazzled with the aid of the bottle of wine that was left for me. I would highly recommend The Galloway House to anyone visiting Savannah.
Our stay for our 20th anniversary was made very special by Maurice and Glenn at the Park Avenue Manor B&B - within walking distance to everything - the Victorian atmosphere and close proximity to everything Savannah has to offer can't be beat - spend some time at Forsyth Park and enjoy quiet time in the courtyard begin the house with Red the resident outdoor cat. Great experience and fantastic breakfast both mornings of our stay. Great hosts - great experience.
Descubre Savannah, la ciudad de los fantasmas
La ciudad de Savannah es la mayor y también la más antigua del estado de Georgia. Fue fundada en 1733 junto con la colonia de Georgia y se convirtió, unos años después, en la capital de la Colonia Real de Georgia. Conocida como “la ciudad anfitriona del Sur”, por la tradicional hospitalidad de los habitantes del sur de los Estados Unidos, recibe cada año la visita de millones de turistas. Es además famosa por sus fantasmas, tanto como puede serlo Salem, en Massachusetts. Las historias paranormales se remontan en esta ciudad a sus mismos inicios, y los incidentes documentados son numerosos.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Savannah
Entre los cinco distritos históricos de la ciudad se cuentan 22 plazas, cada una asociada a un momento distinto de la historia, y a lo largo de toda la ciudad hay varias iglesias y sinagogas, además de viviendas históricas en perfecto estado de conservación. Probablemente la más famosa sea la Mercer House, principal localización de la novela “Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal”, convertida hoy en un museo. En el centro histórico de la ciudad se conserva un cementerio de la época colonial y a no mucha distancia del centro se encuentran varios fuertes que sirvieron para la defensa de la ciudad durante la guerra civil estadounidense. El antiguo Cotton Exchange, construido en 1887, es de obligada visita. Antiguamente era el lugar en el que se llevaban a cabo todas las transacciones comerciales del algodón sureño, y lugar de partida y llegada de esta carga; su visita, junto con el recorrido por el Historic Riverfront Park es toda una experiencia.

La ciudad cuenta con restaurantes para todos los gustos y bolsillos, muchos de ellos situados en la zona de los bed and breakfast de Savannah. En cualquier caso, esta es la ciudad perfecta para degustar los típicos platos de la gastronomía sureña, como el delicioso pollo frito al estilo sureño o los tomates verdes fritos.
Eventos destacados en Savannah
El evento anual más destacado de la ciudad es la celebración el 17 de marzo del día de San Patricio, con una fiesta de carnaval (la segunda mayor del país) que puede recordar al Mardi Gras que se celebra cada año en Bourbon Street en Nueva Orleans. Los primeros sábados de cada mes se celebra el “First Saturday on the River”, una celebración familiar en la histórica River Street, con ferias de arte y artesanía a la orilla del río, el evento ideal para disfrutar en familia.
