The perfect choice

5 on April 11, 2016

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Savannah than the Spanish Moss Inn. The location is perfect, in the heart of the historic district and steps from the shops and restaurants of the restored river front.The rooms in this charming heritage home are large with high ceilings and are beautifully decorated with period furnishings. It was a great pleasure to meet the charming and friendly owners, Elena and Sam. They greeted us warmly, offered many helpful tips on local restaurants and the ongoing music festival in town, and accommodated our other small requests easily and willingly.. It was a joy to be able to return to the house between our activities during the day for short periods of quiet relaxation in the bright sunroom or the elegant living room or out on the secluded patio. Tea and coffee and cookies could be self served on exquisite china at any time. Such meticulous attention to detail by our hosts helped make our stay at the Spanish Moss Inn truly memorable. We look forward to a return visit sometime soon.


Southern Comforts

We had a wonderful two days in Savanah at the Spanish Mosss Inn. The proprietors were friendly and hospitable. The inn is located in the heart of the historic district. We were able to walk to restaurants, shops and sightseeing. We were the only clientele ar the inn and were able to leave the car in the garage our entire stay. Our bedroom was on the third floor with complete privacy. There are two elegant appointed bedrooms on the second floor that would have been a great alternative selection. My wife and I were offered wine and chocolates in the evening and coffee or tea in the morning. Gracious hosts and loved our stay.


Great location, super clean and beautifully decorated!

We enjoyed our stay for our honeymoon. This is a great location, we walked everywhere and took in the beauty of Savannah. The inn was super clean and the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to go back home to mine! The entire inn is decorated beautifully and it was a very comfortable atmosphere! We will definitely be back to stay again.


It's beautiful!

Perfect location! The Aqua Room was beautiful! Wine/ treats in the evening and coffee/ tea in the morning. We were traveling but we wish we could have stayed. The owner was very nice and the email prior to the visit was very informative. Parking can be an issue, so just read carefully and you will be okay. We would love to go again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the kind review!! Yes, we wish to keep guests up to date on our complimentary parking and always notify the guest in advance of these free services. Since January, we do not serve breakfast at the inn and let everyone know in advance; though, we are happy to learn that you enjoyed the afternoon treats and morning beverages. We look forward to your return! We greatly appreciate your insights and review. Wishing you a lovely day.


Pleasant stay

4.2 on March 22, 2015

Overall it was a pleasant experience. The place was very clean, the coffee in the morning was great. Only had 2 gripes. First was the parking, which can be a mess if the 2 covered spots are taken. Our email said the adjacent dry cleaners offers 2 spots to spanish Moss guests. We stopped there and walked in to confirm. They said they don't offer that anymore. We ended up having to pay to park to get back to our room on 1 occasion. The other issue is probably just a dormer room issue. This room is basically an attic, so the walls are not insulated and we can hear the outside very easily. I didn't realize that Bay Street is a main artery used by semi's driving from the factories on the east side of the city to the main Highway. I'm a pretty light sleeper so I was woken up quite a few times by the passing trucks. Again this is probably just a dormer room issue.

Innkeeper Response
Hello, thank you for taking the time to write to us. Your review is very helpful and we are happy to learn that your stay was pleasant. We understand there was some confusion about parking at the dry cleaners during the holiday, and for this we apologize!! Since then, we are certain to let guests know if the complimentary parking is not available to us during a holiday. All of us in the downtown historic district feel similar about the traffic noise, as most inns and homes experience the bustle of the historic district. It's our hope that the provided ear plugs, fans, and comfortable bed will alleviate any of those disturbances experienced by light sleepers. Again, thank you for the review. Kind Regards.


Charming and Convenient

5 on February 27, 2015

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!


Always a pleasure

Simply Wonderful!

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.


Highly recommended!

We have only stayed at a bed and breakfast one time and our experience was mundane. We were pleasantly surprised at The Spanish Moss! It was not overly frilly like many B&B's, the rooms had such character, wonderfully decorated and very very clean. Perfectly located as well! Sam was such a pleasant helpful host, communicated wonderfully and made us feel quite welcome! We will definitely return when we come back to Savannah! ..The Rainers


Tasteful, and inviting.

5 on January 13, 2014

The Ferreira's are wonderful hosts. We arrived at the Spanish Moss Inn late in the afternoon without any reservations, yet Sam welcomed and invited us in, and showed us around as if we were family. We are so glad that there was an open room because after seeing the house we wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. The house is beautifully restored and maintained, tastefully decorated, and inviting. We were able to relax and unwind while drinking specialty tea as we sat in the sunroom overlooking the patio with the serene sound of the water fountains. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast arrangement worked perfect and was very delicious. It is also worth noting that there is enclosed secure parking inside the property.
