This is a fantastic place. We stayed in room 204, hoping for some paranormal fun. We sadly did not experience anything along those lines. However, the place is wonderful. The people are extremely helpful and friendly. The onsite restaurant is great. We would definitely go back!
For the price and the good location in the heart of Savannah, this is a sweet place. We did the innkeepers special for two nights and were placed in the Treetop room which is up three flights of stairs from street level. No biggie except for hauling up our medium size suitcase up the slightly narrow old stairwells. The room was nice and has a little kitchen area with a microwave, sink, and fridge. Also a three seat table and a couple chairs in the living/dining area with a TV. Nice queensize bed which was pretty firm which we liked. The headboard is up against the windows facing the street and they aren't very insulating of temp or noise....a little drafty. I actually thought the window was open as i could hear outside so clearly but it is an old brownstone so that's part of the charm for sure. Bathroom was fine but not much space to put your bathroom things out. Free in room Wifi had some issues when it rained but was fast when it worked. Now i'll talk about the second B, breakfast. We enjoyed two and they were both nicely done...french toast and then eggs benedict with juice and coffee in a communal dining area in the main entry house. They also serve a nice array of warm tasty cookies at 8 pm each evening. Get em and then head out for drinks and walk around the beautiful historic city. Parking was a snap as there was a decent amount of available spaces and the hotel takes care of the meter with quarters on travel days and parking passes on full days. Relative stayed in the Azalea room which is on second floor and has two queen beds in two rooms with the second being a main room with chairs and a TV and bathroom. View is out the back which is nothing special at all. You'll have to walk through 1st bedroom to get to 2nd bedroom. Great and very hospitable hotel staff. You'll enjoy your stay. It's quaint and reasonably priced.
The room (Turkish) was very nice, and the location is excellent! The breakfast was very tasty. Our window looked right out on lovely Chatham Square, although it was a little difficult to see the square through the trees. It seems a little inconvenient to have to park in metered parking. However, we were very lucky and got a place right in front of the B&B. The price of the parking is included in the room, and they will help feed the meter on the day you depart. The only negative thing I have to say, which is very minor, is that the room was dark. Also, the "ground" floor is actually 1 story above street level, and the rooms were all at least 1 story higher, so you must be able to climb stairs.
Tim and I have stayed in the Green Palm Inn numerous times, by ourselves and with friends in the last two years. We "Would Stay No Where Else" while visiting in Savannah. No matter what time you arrive at the Inn, 2:00 in the afternoon or 3:00 in the morning, you feel welcomed! The Inn itself is quaint, warm and relaxing, the rooms are comfortable and beautiful, the full breakfast each morning is amazing and there are no words to describe how gracious Diane and her Staff are! If you are traveling to Savannah or through Savannah, make your reservation! You won't regret it!
We returned to the place where our romance began, Savannah, for our 15th anniversary, and relived the wonderful B&B experience of years ago. The Ballastone Inn did not disappoint. Our room (China) was tastefully appointed, the common areas relaxing and inviting, the breakfast delicious. Looking forward to coming back soon!
We loved staying at Spanish Moss Inn! The rooms were beautiful and cozy. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets were so soft that I researched them and ordered a set for myself! Sam made everything so perfect and effortless. They had snacks and wine waiting for us upon our arrival as well as every afternoon, and coffee waiting in the morning. We stayed three nights and every night was as great as the next. The location couldn't have been more perfect. Walking distance to everything. We parked our car in the garage and didn't move it again until we headed home. There are lovely common areas including the living room, courtyard and sun room. We spent time hanging out in each without any disruption even though other people were staying there. The only negative I could think of is the sound issues, but they aren't so bad that I wouldn't stay again. Just know that the walls/floors are somewhat thin and there is street noise that comes in. (But that's just part of being in an old house.) If you need a perfectly quiet place, this may not be the best place, but if you can handle a little ambient noise, it's so worth it! (They also had a fan in the room that we used to drown out the sounds which was super helpful) Overall, I would recommend this place and would stay again!
No more Hotels - ever!! I am sold!! B & B 's are the way to go....We stayed here for the first time ever in a B & B and were so impressed. Clean, comfortable, cozy, warm, great food, great company - what more could you ask???
Our stay at The Galloway House was everything we hoped for. From being dog-friendly to a great little apartment to stay in to a great location. Jim and Keith were great hosts and made us feel very welcomed. We will definitely plan to stay here again when we visit in the future.
The weather was unusually cool when my wife and I arrived in Savannah, but Monique's welcome to the Jenkins House was warm and gracious. During our three night stay Monique's attention to detail and her caring approach were unprecedented in our experiences of travelling the world. The gourmet food, delivered daily was beautifully presented: and a perfect compliment to the artistically decorated jenkins House. We had journeyed from Canada to celebrate our wedding anniversary amidst the beauty of the Savannah Old Historic District. We selected Armstrong Inns because their location, as well their offer of a unique approach of creating "a romantic home away from home". Armstrong's Inns exceeded our very high expectations in every way. Thank you Monique.
When you visit a city for the first time, you hope to find a welcoming base for exploration. Park Avenue Manor (and owners Maurice and Glenn) served that purpose splendidly. My wife and I loved the charming Victorian manor, Maurice's delicious breakfasts and insightful tips on what to see and do, and the manor's location at the southern end of Forsythe Park (close enough to the historic center to walk to but far enough away to avoid the noise and parking hassles). We stayed for four nights and loved the ambience --- conversing with an eclectic and interesting group of fellow travelers each morning in the intimate breakfast room and, in the evening, in front of the fireplace in the parlor room. As we left Savannah, my wife remarked that The Park Avenue Manor was the perfect setting for our stay in this beautiful city.
Great place to stay. It is centrally located so we were walking distance to the historic sites and river street. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was great! We stayed in the low country which was really nice. It's located on the bottom level right next to the kitchen so it was a bit noisy but bearable.
We only stayed one night and arrived in the evening. The Inn was a stop on our way home from a Marriott in Sawgrass. We enjoyed much better service and food at the Inn than we did at the swanky Marriott.
I had never stayed at an Inn before and was not sure what to expect. I really enjoyed my stay there. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very cozy. The fireplace really set it off. We only had breakfast there. It was pastries, yogurt, fruit and coffee. We tried to dine there but it was completely booked due to Valentine's Day. Jackie did recommend a great restaurant just a few blocks away where we were able to walk right in. We did use the complementary cocktail coupons. The bartenders were very friendly. It will be my first choice to stay when visiting Savannah in the future.
It was so nice to arrive from the pouring rain from Charlston To Savannah at the Ballastone B &B. Everything was so beautiful Decorated for the holidays!!!! Everything was wonderful, the Staff, my room, the food, Looking forward to returning one day.
Low rating on service because we did not receive any room service for clean towels and other items that needed to be changed or replaced. Connected attendant on duty and she didn't seem to be too concerned. I finally went down to desk and got some of the needed items.
I stayed in the Tattnall house over a long weekend with my husband and his parents. Monique was totally and completely fabulous!! she made the check-in process super easy and we were even allowed to bring our two small dogs (the house comes with a private courtyard which is perfect for our pooches)! The house was the perfect walking distance to get downtown and see the sites without feeling like we were in the "touristy" part of town. Ms. Monique spoiled us with delicious homemade dips and cakes and pastries. she made a PHENOMENOL breakfast both mornings and checked in with us to make sure we were doing ok throughout our trip. The home has feather beds/pillows and silk sheets which made it feel like sleeping on a cloud. I would highly highly highly recommend staying in any of the Armstrong inn rooms, and will DEFINATELY be back. What a charming, wonderful weekend!
We visited on just a short two night trip and had a really hard time leaving. The room was better than I expected, (207)we had no issues at all. It stormed our first night so we dined in the restaurant and it was excellent! The breakfast was continental but it was enough to start the day. We would recommend to everyone!
I loved the Galloway house!! It felt like our own little apartment right in the heart of Savannah. Everything was within walking distance. Keith and Jim were so nice and helped with anything we needed! The room was perfect for us and the dogs felt right at home. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a quite little get away!
This was our third stay in this beautiful old inn and it was as charming as ever. The owners and staff are genuinely friendly and helpful and treat everyone as though they are members of the family. Our room was very comfortable and it was so cozy to come back & sit by the fire after a chilly day of exploring downtown Savannah. I would recommend this inn to anyone wishing to experience Savannah at its most charming.
An excellent place to stay and superior to almost any other place anywhere that accepts dogs. The hosts, Jim and Keith, go the extra mile to make the stay enjoyable. The accommodations, though on the small side, are beautifully decorated and comfortable. The property contains lovely gardens and parking is directly outside off the back alley. However, the neighborhood is in transition and a long walk to the historic district.
My bf and I only stayed one night but we regretted that instantly. We wish we could have stayed longer and we want to go back as soon as we can! Very cute, very welcoming, homey, great coffee and muffins, I have nothing bad to say only good things!
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.
