What a delightful place! We enjoyed the innkeeper special rate and stayed in the Parlor room, which was lovely. We stayed in this lovely home like setting cheaper than we did our hotel room in Jax Beach the next night! The people were so good to us. Highly recommend.
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have stayed for three nights at The Green Palm Inn. Diane and her staff could not have been more welcoming or more helpful. Our room (The Sabal Palm) was so serene,comfortable, well appointed, and very clean! Breakfast was more than ample and always delicious. You will need to stroll the beautiful Savannah squares after eating such wonderful food! We walked most of the squares, enjoyed the town center, strolled River Street, visited shops, restaurants and museums, all without moving our car! It was lovely to return to the Inn for a little peace and quiet before going to dinner. If you work up an appetite walking about the city, the 4-6 pm happy hour will tempt you with lovely sweets and savories, as well as wine and other beverages. Diane had many helpful suggestions to help us during our stay. We eagerly look forward to our next visit to The Green Palm Inn.
We absolutely loved our stay at The Galloway House for our honeymoon. Since my bride enjoys natural light, Jim and Keith suggested the 3rd floor loft apartment and it was lovely. We also appreciated their suggestions regarding places to see and to eat. We can't wait for another opportunity to visit!
I took my girlfriend here last year for her birthday. From the phone conversation to book our room to our last day at Park Avenue everything was spectacular. Glenn and Maurice were wonderful host. The food was out of this world and the care and compassion they had for their services was inspiring. I plan to visit Savannah come this fall and cannot imagine not booking again. Thank you Park Avenue Manor!
Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and they allowed us to check in, although we were early and our room wasn't yet ready. The owners, Patty and Nathan were very friendly and a great help on things to see and do in the city. The room was clean and very comfortable and all of the staff that we encountered had a smile on their faces and were always very helpful. We will be back!
The room was very comfortable however; we found the mattress to be very uncomfortable, we woke up in pain. The ladies especially Leigh were absolutely delightful, we felt very Welcome. The breakfast was delicious and your coffee was quite good! (which is unusual in the South). We will return! Cyndi D. Thanks!
This place was recommended to us for our visit to Savannah. Great location for walking about the town. We did not need the car once we arrived here. Rooms were very well decorated, comfy beds, and the staff was very, very accommodating. Would highly recommend Ballastone Inn to anyone.
I love this place!! I have stayed here 3 times and plan to make many more trips back. Maurice and Glenn are wonderful hosts and do everything they can to help you have great stay. The location is out of the hustle and bustle of the riverwalk, but is beautiful walk through all the parks to get downtown.
Jim and Keith were very helpful in recommending sightseeing options, cafes and restaurants and made us feel at home. The Carriage house was perfect for relaxing and was quite spacious after small hotel rooms in NYC and DC. regards Campbell and Christina
5 stars!! This place was amazing! The rooms are lovely and the king size bed was very comfortable. The wine offered in the dinning room each evening was wonderful! Breakfast at B.Mathew's Eatery was terrific! We were really pleased with our stay and will certainly be back. Perfect location to walk to River Street and all the surrounding shops.
This was our first experience in Tybee Island and we were met by wonderful hosts at the Tybee Island Inn. Our stay was short but outstanding. Lloyd and his wife were gracious hosts with lots of good ideas for our short stay. The Inn was clean and charming and breakfast was outstanding. If you have diet restrictions, they are more than happy to accommodate your needs. I would recommend the Tybee Island Inn to those who prefer a homestyle stay instead of a large establishment hotel.
My husband and I had a great stay! The inn is a little farther from the main part of Savannah than I thought but we enjoyed walking and talking on the trip so it wasn't bad at all. Service was wonderful, food was yummy, and the cats are an added bonus :-) We loved how our room (the blue cottage) had it's own separate entrance...we felt we were in our own little world! I would certainly recommend this inn to anyone thinking about staying.
I booked at the last minute for a one night getaway and received a good price. The room was charming and well decorated (102) but felt a little damp and had a slight mildewy smell. The room was clean but the sink and coffee maker could have used a little more attention. The staff was nice but not overly friendly, but they were helpful with my questions...but I do wish they knew a little more about the history of the building. The location was PERFECT -- right in the heart of historic Savannah.
Savannah's Bed and Breakfast Inn is in a wonderful location, just 2 blocks from Forsyth Park, and right around the corner from the Mercer House. The Inn has wonderful breakfasts each morning, that change so you don't end up eating the same thing every day. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the historic charm is fun to explore. The staff is very friendly, and always willing to help with any questions about Savannah. I would stay here again.
This was my 3rd stay this year at the 1790 inn. Such a wonderful relaxing time. Perfect location easy to walk every where. Love Jill, Scott and Martha. Warm and friendly. Make sure to try the Inn's restaurant and lounge, both food and atmosphere outstanding!
I was easily able to get a reservation hours prior to dining. When we arrived, we had Steven as our waiter. His enthusiasm toward the menu dishes and checking on us often to make sure everything was perfect made this restaurant a great experience. Also, the complimentary biscuits and the shrimp and grits were amazing! Thank you!
My wife and I walked up the staircase and were welcomed by an aged wooden door, the kind of age that places the Inn in its historic venue and values the nostalgic. Upon entering the Inn, surprisingly, we were greeted by an actual, "Welcome to Savannah...Hi, I'm Kathleen..." and a cordial conversation ensued. She took time to make us feel at home, asked questions about our travel, and offered complimentary glasses of wine before we went out to dinner. The breakfasts at the Inn were great! The mornings the Inn served blueberry pancakes & Eggs Benedict were some of the best breakfasts I’ve ever enjoyed. The Coffee is French press for breakfast. We also had the best conversations at the breakfast table with the Inn Keeper and other guests. The Inn is also occupied by Mr. Cooper, the resident beagle. This dog is very well behaved, does not smell and is very friendly. We hardly noticed he was even there actually. If you're not allergic to dogs, and not turned off by knowing a dog lives here, you could literally stay here and never have to deal with Mr. Cooper...he's that discrete. We stayed in the Bellevue, "the coldest room in the house" and appreciated the AC after spending much of our stay walking around Savannah. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets better than what we use at home. The rooms are decorated with antique furniture that is classical in taste and thematic for the rooms. The parking is tight, but this is to be expected in a historic city not built for modern vehicles, but we had no issue moving the car on the day we went to Tybee Island. Overall, this is an excellent Inn that contains a wonderful irony. We visited Savannah for the first time, greeted by a Bostonian Inn Keeper who showed us Southern Hospitality, in a city founded by British colonialists, whose Boston Tea party began a revolution. The enigmas run deep I suppose. Visit Kathleen for a taste of the olde South, southern hospitality and an Inn committed to detail.
Loved the room we stayed in and the staff was friendly but not as helpful with questions and didn't go "out of the way" to make it feel homey. We have stayed at hundreds of B&B's but have never stayed at one where the proprietor was not present. The food was definitely the lowest quality we have ever had. Location a bit off the beaten path of downtown Old Savannah but that is what we enjoy.
WOW! the armstrong inn Jenkins house is a true 5 star residence. We enjoyed exquisite breakfast each day while enjoying the Savannah charm in the Jenkins House. We actually stayed an additional day; we did not want to leave. Monique is a sincere and caring host. My wife and I will soon be back!
Great location! We parked our car and walked everywhere all weekend. Staff was very attentive and friendly. My only criticism is that the wifi in our room was inconsistent. We will definitely stay there again!
We booked this room in celebration of our 15th anniversary. I would highly recommend this inn as your next go-to place to stay. Our room was in a separate building, which had a lovely sitting room on the bottom floor. The entire building was quiet. The bed was super comfortable. And we were pleasantly surprised with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. I loved the hardwood floors that creaked, the old furniture and the chandeliers. The inn is within 10 minutes walking distance to River Street, so the location is perfect. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful to us. The also gave us a parking permit to park our car before time to check in. The bartender made a sangria, which was also excellent! We didn't eat in the restaurant, but because of the bar service, I gave that 5 stars. On our next trip to Savannah, we will look here to book first!
My husband and I just spent 5 wonderful days at Park Avenue Manor. Everything about it was perfect – from the beautifully appointed furnishings and décor, to the powerful air conditioning (much needed in Savannah in July!) . We could not have asked for anything more. Maurice and Glenn went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome – more like members of the family than paying guests. We stayed in the Georgia Suite – with a king-size four-poster bed and separate sitting room and a private entrance to a back courtyard. Even though the room was on the ground floor, we never heard any street noise; we always felt like we were in our own cozy home when in our room. Some of the thoughtful touches that made the place special were the full-sized shampoo, conditioner and hand lotion bottles and Q-tips in the bathroom, complimentary water bottles and cans of soda in the refrigerator and brownies and Sherry on the entrance hall table all of the time. And the breakfasts – unbelievable!. Every morning we had assorted fresh fruit, baked goods, eggs and other goodies. And as for the table itself – it was a work of art. Maurice and Glenn have several sets of china, glassware and table runners so every day it was a treat just to see how they’d set the table (yes, we even took pictures every day). We had a wonderful time every morning sitting ‘family style’ with all of the B&B guests, discussing the previous night/plans for the upcoming day. Maurice and Glenn were always there to assist, guide and advise us. We will absolutely stay with them again when we return to Savannah. This is southern hospitality at its best!
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.

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.
