We had a wonderful visit in Savannah in July. My friends stayed at the Savannah Inn Bead and Breakfast. The rooms at the inn are lovely, and the staff is very accommodating. We had a hearty breakfast each morning and at night there is delicious inn-made chocolate chip cookies and milk for you to enjoy. We would very much recommend Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn.
Our Tomochichi room was BEAUTIFUL and very comfortable. We loved spending a romantic evening on our patio, surrounded by plants and so quiet. The staff is very helpful and welcoming, breakfast was excellent, cats were friendly. We will definitely stay here next time in Savannah.
We only stayed one night and were absolutely awed by the beautiful location and the room(s!) itself. We chose the economy option the Inn offered because we didn't mind stairs and couldn't decide which room to chose anyway so we were more than pleasantly surprised be the outcome! Very charming and personal atmosphere, beautiful porch and backyard, I even got to pet the cat!
Spent three nights at Foley House, wonderful time. Friendly staff, gorgeous rooms, incredible breakfast, sweets, and appetizers. Would highly recommend to stay. Chuck was so helpful with dining choices in evenings.
We stayed there for two nights on the way to Tybee Island. The grounds were beautiful and the room was very comfortable and cozy. The owners were away but our hosts were just great. Breakfast was waiting on the table each morning and it was delicious. We also found the BEST seafood restaurant "Sunbury Crab Co". We ate there both nights and it turned out to be the best seafood restaurant of our entire vacation.
The location was excellent. Very close to downtown and other interesting sites in the city. Staff was very attentive and helpful. The only drawback was having to move the cars around every night to avoid the street cleaners.
We enjoyed our time at the inn. The room was spacious and clean. The copper bathtub was amazing! The owner brought our breakfast to our room each day and she was very helpful when we were looking for things yo do in Savannah (what trolley company to use, where to park, etc). The inn is a short walk to the beach and chairs and umbrellas were provided by the inn which was a money saver. We stayed in the Captains Quarters. I loved having our own private entrance. The downside was you could hear people walking around and talking above us. The only other negative we had was that the toilet backed up and flooded the restroom shortly after we arrived. It took two hours to clean everything up which meant we had to leave the room. They did apologize, but never offered to compensate us for the disruption. Overall, the a Tybee Island a Inn is a very nice place to stay and I would recommend to others.
My husband and I took an extended weekend trip to Savannah in June and could not have chosen a better place to stay than Azalea Inn & Villas! The staff is amazing, I emailed with Christina and Shannon who were very helpful prior to our trip providing insight about where to eat, what to do, etc. The location is right off Forsyth Park, which I enjoyed as it is a short walk from River Street and the commotion that goes with it. The food was delicious, each breakfast was more like a 3 course meal. The pool was a welcome treat, my husband and I arrived early to check in and Christina let us go for a dip which was so welcome on a hot June afternoon. The next time we are headed to Savannah, I will not hesitate to book our stay here.
My daughter and I visited Savannah for a brief vacation. We stayed in the top floor apartment, and it was wonderful. I enjoyed the early morning light, my daughter not so much! There was a tiny porch outside the entrance which was nice, but there is not much of a view from there. The garden in the back yard is beautiful,I could have spent more time there. We asked and Keith was generous enough to introduce us to their dog! Parking was on the street and there were also two spots in the alley behind the house and we never had trouble finding a place to park. The B & B does not provide a breakfast in a dining room, but breakfast foods (bagels, muffins, yogurt, OJ, coffee,tea) were provided and replenished as needed. Technically there was no onsite dining, but there are several eating establishments within walking distance. Jim and Keith were absolutely helpful and friendly. We got some pointers on where to walk for a meal and other tips on ways to explore Savannah. Overall, I was pleased with our visit and would certainly stay here again!
The Forsyth Park Inn offers a beautiful view of Forsyth Park and easy access to shuttle transportation for touring beautiful Savannah. The Inn is beautifully and comfortably furnished. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff outstanding.
Fabulous stay! The first floor carriage house was delightful and large enough for a 2 nite stay. Gardens are breathtaking. Jim was so helpful before and during checkin. Communicating with via text was helpful prior to checkin. Thank you for you hospitality.
From the moment I booked my visit until the moment we left, the staff met every question or request that we may have had regarding our stay with smiles and professionalism. Next time we are in Savannah, we will return to the Ballastone, to enjoy the southern hospitality!
We booked a doubleroom and get a whole house. All were very good. Wir buchten nur ein Doppelzimmer und bekamen ein ganzes Haus. Alles war sehr sauber, das Frühstück gut. Leider hat wir nur eine Nacht. Wären gerne länger beblieben.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn. We stayed when we got married in Chatham Square in 2009, again for our 5 year anniversary, and just recently on the way home from a trip to Florida. The first two times we stayed, we were extremely happy with our rooms. This time, not so much. We did the Inkeeper's Special where they assign you a room of their choice. We will never do that again. We were given the Jasmine room. The room itself was nice, however the location was horrible. It is located right off the back porch common area. There were people on the porch talking right outside our room at 11 pm and also at 3 am. My husband and I were both exhausted from traveling and did not appreciate being woken up at 3 in the morning by someone who enjoyed the night life of Savannah a little too much. If they are going to have rooms located off of a common area, there should be set quiet hours for the guests that are staying in rooms located near the common areas. Needless to say, we were disappointed with our stay this time.
My boyfriend and I have been two separate times to Savannah and this is the place to stay. We have always felt at home here and since our last visit in 2014 we have been dreaming about coming back. Plus the inn keeper Theresa is one of the best people you'll meet and she's a great chef too!
It was great experience staying at Surf Song! The owner and staff were really friendly and made you feel like you were at home. Very personal and helpful. The location was great as you are only maybe a five minute walk to the beach, which is an area that's a bit more private compared to the other end of Tybee where most people stay. You are also close to the lighthouse and cool little bar/restaurant. My wife and I really enjoyed the deck and pool as we kind of had it to ourselves at times. We also loved the breakfast as the lady that made it was friendly and came up with great recipes! Our room was on the lower level and was nice for what we needed. For a couple it was fine. It did feel a bit humid at times and we could hear noise from the kitchen, but the experience was so great that really wasn't a big deal... Plus if we had asked the owner she prolly would've turned the air down more so it really was on us to have asked. I would stay there every time from now on.
Private, Not too close to the busyness of the river, but only a 15 minute walk through the beautiful streets to get there. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were lovely and were also air conditioned well!! So important this time of year in Savannah. Thanks for the memories!!
The Bed and Breakfast Inn is more "inn" than B&B, but it was fine. Our room was small and up narrow stairs, but priced accordingly. We appreciated the small breakfast served at our chosen time. The location of the Inn is perfect for those seeing Savannah on foot.
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.

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.
