Dog Friendly and Great Location Too

3.6 on October 16, 2014

My husband and I along with our dog Rooster recently spent a long weekend at Joan's on Jones. The suite was wonderful. The private garden entrance, the lovely sun room, chilled wine, beverages and muffins or croissants in room were a delight. We had a full kitchen with all the amenities as well. It was nice to enjoy breakfast at our own leisure. Our suite was spacious and very cozy and the location was amazing. Just one street from The Mercer House, close to Forsyth Park and plenty of shopping and dining options. We will be back!

Prettiest city in the US

We stayed in the garden apartment and it was beautiful! Only thing that could of made it easier was having credit card function to pay for our stay but other than that its a great location and I wish we had had more time there!

Our 3rd Stay with Joan!

5 on May 29, 2014

This is our 3rd stay at Joan’s on Jones and there is a reason that we keep coming back! While it is a smaller B&B, only offering two suites, these two suites are immense offering a separate bedroom, sitting room, small kitchenette, and bathroom; the rooms are nicely appointed with all necessities. Joan’s on Jones has a more private experience to staying at a B&B, with separate entrances to both suites and instead of a community style breakfast, the suite kitchen is stocked with continental breakfast necessities as well as a bottle of wine for the evenings. Location is another real plus for Joan’s on Jones, right in the heart of the historic district with many restaurants, shopping and Forsyth Park within easy walking distance. Finally, for those pet lovers out there such as myself, this is the place to stay! Joan offers pet friendly accommodations in both suites and even provides treats for the four-legged guests. Also, there is only a onetime pet fee; you can return years later with the same pet with no additional fee. Joan’s on Jones has always been and will continue to be our top choice in historic Savannah!

Location and Value of the Garden Suite are Exceptional

Lovely and spacious suite with a great location. Joan's on Jones is a pet friendly BnB and we did notice a pet urine odor when we first arrived that eventually dissapated. Joan is a lovely hostess and her assitant Ann is equally helpful.

beautiful suite!

one night in savannah with our dog- it was perfect.

Not Much for Breakfast

2.6 on May 02, 2014

We only stayed one night. I thought I would get a breakfast but there were just muffins, juice and some grapefruit that were left in the room along with a box of cereal and some milk. I have stayed at many B & B's before and while Joan was a very nice woman, this would not be on my list to return to. The bed was not very comfortable and the pillows were so flat as to be almost nonexistent. I also was not fond of her dog jumping up on me. If you have a pet or are a dog lover, this is the place for you. The room was large and as I said Joan was a very nice woman. We just prefer a little more luxury than this place has to offer. Having made my reservations at the last minute my options were limited and for the price that we paid, I pretty much expected it not to be my favorite.

Joan's is first class.

Joan's is in a beautiful neighborhood close to many great restaurants, parks, shopping and other attractions. The history is fascinating. Our room was nicely furnished and clean and Joan and her assistant are obviously very concerned about her guest's comfort. Thanks again for a great stay.

Beautiful, Quiet, Private B and B

3.4 on March 13, 2014

This bed and breakfast is in a beautiful historic building in the historic district of Savannah. It puts you easily in th heart of the district and all its sites. We stayed in the garden apartment and found it to be charming, quiet and private. However, this is not a typical b and b in that there is minimal contact with the owners or other guests. The breakfast is just fruit, cereal, bagels, juice, coffee, etc. - replenished daily but not much better than what you'd get at any hotel chain. So you do miss out on the more "connected" experience that we have found in most bed and breakfasts. The owners are very nice and will assist if you have questions but we felt more like we were disturbing them each time than as paying welcomed guests. For those however who place a premium on privacy and don't seek the conversation with others, this is perfect.

A Savannah Historic Gem

Great location; walk to everything in the historic district. Cosy apartment in a Savannah Classic home. Very pet friendly. Recommended highly.
