Great Place to Stay!!

4.4 on November 20, 2014

First time to Savannah, went online and read all the great reviews, so we decided to book a room. The reviews were accurate. We enjoyed the coziness, everyone who worked there was great and so helpful. Parking was easy, breakfast was excellent and the view from our room was spectacular! We will definitely be coming back!

November Weekend

3.4 on November 15, 2014

I stayed for a weekend with my mom. The only issue we really had was with the stairs. To get to the Camellia room, you must walk down a narrow metal staircase and then back up another. She has arthritis and vertigo so this was a small problem. If I saw those stairs, I would have picked another room. Also the first night I had no hot water and the hairdryer kept shutting off. The hardwood floor was sandy, we kept our socks on. The room showed two twin beds but we had a king. Staff claimed there were complaints about that and the pictures were old. They were friendly and food was good and cooked to order.


Anniversary get-a-way

This is an excellent place to stay! We stayed in the Jackson Suite which had two bedrooms, a sitting area, full kitchen with washer & dryer and a private patio. The bath was small but had everything you need. Everything was as advertised. Great rate for a suite. Staff were very helpful. Will stay here again.


I would recommend the Inn to everyone that enjoys southern hospitality. I absolutely enjoyed breakfast on the terrace. The staff was very accommodating, and seemed to truly enjoy making sure we had everything we needed. My room made me feel as if I was going to bed and waking up at home with the

Books on the shelves in the bathroom and on the night stand beside the bed. The four poster was both beautiful and comfortable. The beautiful city parks and river were in walking distance. I will definitely return to this beautiful Inn.


A wonderful part of the Savannah experience!

4.6 on November 10, 2014

The staff, from the concierge to the breakfast servers and chefs, went out of their way to be accommodating and helpful. The street side rooms are a bit noisy, which is to be expected in such an old structure, and the steps leading up to the rooms are steep and narrow. The overall experience was delightful, and we'd definitely choose this inn again.
