My hubby and I enjoy ourselves at the location. The owners accommodated us even when we arrived before check in time. Jim pointed out all the information relevant to dinning out and getting around. Overall great place to stay and very quiet area. Plus, you can use the bicycles to explore the town. :)
"Let me pamper you," were the words Kathleen said to my husband and I during our amazing stay at this lovely inn. And pamper us she did! From the wine offered on arrival, to the bottles of water to take on our walks through Savannah in the heat of July, to the tasty sweets left by our bedside in the evenings, even the plush bathrobes and cozy slippers... no detail has been overlooked by Kathleen. If you need anything, she is there for you, from recommendations to reservations. Also, the home is absolutely gorgeous and breakfast is a dream come true. Delicious! Kathleen does a wonderful job with making your stay memorable. We will return!
This bed and breakfast was wonderful! I was traveling on a budget and I took the inkeeper's special package. I wasn't expecting much given I was going to get one of their smaller value rooms but I was blown away when I ended up in the Egyptian Room. The room was stunning! The bed was so comfortable, the design of the room was beautiful and the towels were fresh and fluffy. The staff were helpful in explaining how everything worked, breakfast was served quickly and efficiently and it was absolutely delicious. Red velvet pancakes?! Yes please! All of the extras like the tea in the afternoon and the milk and cookies in the evening really were such a nice added touch. The location was also perfect because I was able to walk to many things and see all Savannah had to offer. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone!
Our stay at the Ballastone Inn was everything I hoped it would be. The staff made us feel right at home and the rooms were so much more inviting than even the best hotels. My husband I agreed that we definitely want to return to Savannah and the place we'll stay is at the Ballastone Inn.
We had a fabulous stay here. As a family of four we were in an annex with 3 bedrooms , 2 living spaces , dining room and sizeable kitchen . All very clean and beautifully furnished with the added bonus of private parking. It was almost the same size as our home in London !! It was ideally situated we could walk everywhere and enjoy Savannah's gorgeous squares and houses. All the staff were friendly and helpful - especially Pam. I would recommend it to anyone and wish we'd stayed a bit longer.
Just spent five days in Savannah visiting my one year old grandson. Was very fortunate to have found accommodations at The Inn at 909 LIncoln. It was a beautiful old Victorian with classic furnishings and a super comfy bed. Elaine is a fantastic hostess and wonderful story teller. I enjoyed our chats over her scrumptious breakfasts. And also loved that when I got back to the Inn at night, there would be homemade goodies waiting for me -- banana bread and chocolate chip cookies! Will definitely stay there during my next trip!

The Chatham Suite was just as beautiful and luxurious as shown in the pictures on Armstrong Inn's web page. Chatham square is a short 15 minute stroll from the waterfront. We enjoyed walking through the squares at night and felt this was a safe location. One of the reasons we chose Armstrong Inns is because I have severe anaphylactic reactions to food allergens. Monique assured me that she could safely prepare my foods, and we also had access to a fully stocked kitchen. Monique prepared the most wonderful breakfast, despite my allergies to eggs, wheat, seafood and apples. This was my first time eating foods that I did not prepare at home in 8 months without a trip to the ER. Thank you Monique!!
My wife and I made reservations on a whim to stay at the Tybee Island Inn. This B&B was by far the best we have ever stayed in. Between the staff, who were extremely attentive and nice, to cleanliness of the rooms (even after several major storms in the area) and the location to the beach...we had the vacation of a lifetime. Thank you Lloyd and the rest of the Tybee Inn staff.
This was a big departure for us, we usually choose Hyatts or similar all clean and shiny! We loved the 1790.. the ambiance, the staff (we were helped with luggage), the food, the location...... all perfect... yes, there were some creaks and cracks and funny little stairs but it all added to the wonderful experience of being in Savannah. I would highly recommend.
Great for the price. The location is perfect, right in the middle of Savannah's Historic District, and walking anywhere in the area is easy. The room was charming, contributing to the whole "historic Savannah" feel. The only problem was the climate in the room. It wasn't hot, but extremely humid (and I'm from South Florida, so I'm not unaccustomed to humidity!). I thought maybe the damp air was my imagination, but the next day when my son and I got dressed, our clothes were actually wet! Oh, one more thing--the room we stayed in had a door leading to the outside street, and if you go to sleep before eleven and sleep lightly, you should be aware that there will be several ghost tours right outside your door.
Ahh Savannah!!! We've been through it a dozen times but never immersed ourselves in it. We found the Armstrong Inns and took advantage of a weekend getaway. The love of my life and myself are middle aged (40's) with no children at home and needed a break from the rigors of work and home. We enjoyed strolling the historic district, seeing the squares. Both of us are avid outdoorsy people and I own a landscaping company so when the weather cooperates and we get time to see how nicely other areas are taken care or and landscaped we jump at the opportunity. We also both enjoy cooking and trying new recipes and the various restaurants of Savannah we tried did NOT disappoint. There were so many to choose from within walking or strolling distance. Our accommodations were charming and full of history although upgraded with all the modern conveniences one would possibly need while on vacation. The staff were friendly, helpful and really behind the scenes so as not to intrude in the our time we had there. Overall, it was a top weekend experience for us.
This was the best stay ever. We were the crazy ladies in 207. Pablo and Brit's friends. Total was like family. Thank Pat, Patrick, Scott, Grumpy and all the others that helped us feel like home. Had a blast. Couldn't have been any better.
My 6 friends and I (all women who worked together years ago) enjoy a weekend away together each year and select a new location each year. This year we chose to visit Savannah, GA. I spent a lot of time researching hotels and bed & breakfasts looking for "the right place". The "right place" turned out to be The Park Avenue Manor. We could not have been happier with our selection. The Manor is beautifully appointed in period furnishings. Both parlors on the main level are very comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious and very clean and each has its own private bathroom. However, the breakfasts are fabulous as well as our hosts, Maurice & Glenn. They could not have been more accomodating. We are all hoping to visit The Park Avenue Manor again!
We stayed in one of the new guesthouses across from the inn. Everything was beautifully decorated, and the location was convenient to many points of interest in the historic district. This is our second time staying at the 1790, and it's now our favorite place to stay when we are in Savannah.
What a welcome retreat at this beautiful Savannah B&B. The apartment was lovely, comfortable and well appointed. The gardens so lovely and relaxing. My daughter's dog was welcomed with open arms as were we. Treat yourself if you are ever in Savannah!
My wife and I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfast Inns over the years, but the Chatham Suite of the Armstrong Inns is far and above the best of them all. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and there was nothing that we could want. Although the Suite was "over the top" the treatment by the Armstrong Inn staff was unbeatable. We had the feeling from the first minute that we were staying at a friend's home and that nothing was spared to make our visit enjoyable and memorable. We were even visited my Monique, the Innkeeper/Owner just prior to our departure. She thanked us profusely for choosing the Armstrong Inn and she really meant it. There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that when we return to Savannah we will definitely stay at an Armstrong Inn. Thank you Monique and your staff for enabling us to have a most memorable 55th wedding anniversary.
My boyfriend and I stayed here during our visit to Georgia. This place is the epitome of southern charm and hospitality. I enjoyed every second staying here. This establishment is located on a quiet, tree-filled street that is a short walk to the river and downtown area. The room was immaculate and charming. The decor was Victorian-chic (as my boyfriend describes it), definitely has a historic feel. Breakfast was delicious. Evening cookies and milk made it a perfect visit. I would love to go back soon!
Staying at the Ballastone Inn enhanced our Savannha visit. Jennifet, the innkeeper and her staff, understand the importance in a guests stay is in the details. Her staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms were immaculate with lots of towels. The Inn is romantic with a beautiful entrance enhanced with jazz or Sinatra playing in the background. It is a very memorable place
Good intentions became greater intentions! We intended to commute back and forth from Tybee Island to Savannah, but...why leave the "aaahhh"? The wrap around porch was too good to leave, not to mention the fabulous breakfasts, delish homemade goodies and sweet tea that were always available, the comfy bed, the even more awesome staff, and the beach just a shell's throw away! Okay, we did leave "home", but didn't go far. There are a lot of fun things to do on Tybee!
Everything about our stay here was perfect: the amenities, the food, the company, the hosts, the price. Everything. Our favorite part from our Savannah trip was this inn; we'll never stay anywhere else. Thank you, Glenn and Maurice! -AM
We stayed in the guest house, 312 King. Everything was so much better than expected. I will definitely reccommend 1790 Inn to others traveling through Savannah. We were very impressed by the details and charm of the old house - it seemed so inviting. I wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks for the hospitality :)
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.
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.
Especialidades culinarias en Savannah
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.
El clima en Savannah
El clima en esta ciudad es excelente durante todo el año, con veranos cálidos e inviernos con temperaturas muy tolerables.
