About

Named among the "Top 10 B&Bs for the Holidays, 2011" by BedandBreakfast, the Gingerbread Victorian (circa 1897) is also among the most affordable and smallest of the top-rated city bed-and-breakfast inns in Savannah. Here affordable Savannah travel is made more special with a "fresh, local and seasonal" hot breakfast with fresh fruit, homemade finger desserts in the afternoon, and wine paired with light hors d'eouvres for pre-dinner appetizers. On daily strolls or invigorating walks, guests love the inn's friendly assistance, southern cuisine, and relaxing atmosphere while enjoying Savannah as a local insider. Beckoning throughout downtown Savannah are classic to eclectic art galleries, world-class mansion museums, Deep South history, architecture and gardens, festive celebrations of diverse local cultures, youthful art school students, and garden landscapes that encourage escapism. This Greene Square neighborhood inn features memory-making homeyness in its four spacious guest rooms with king or queen, four-poster or sleigh bed. Originally renovated in 1998, the historic inn's new private baths feature jacuzzi bath or body-spray shower. A cozy alternative to Savannah hotels, Green Palm Inn is only 4 city blocks from the scenic Savannah riverfront, convenient to boutique downtown shopping, fine restaurants, chic cafes, Georgia Historical Society, music events, film festivals & City Market.

Wonderful B & B

4.0 on October 17, 2017

The Green Palm Inn was a true delight. The hostess, Diane, was so helpful and showed us the map to be sure we were oriented. She fixed marvelous breakfasts and had snacks in the afternoon too. We could not have been happier. It was our first experience in Savannah and her B & B was marvelous. We have stayed in B & B's for more than 30 years. It was nice to see one that had not lost it's charm.


wonderful place to stay when visiting Savannah

Not just bed and breakfast but also delicious afternoon hors d'oeuvres cookies and fruit with wine and, most importantly, great company. Diane is a great hostess and a wealth of priceless information when it comes to anything Savannah.

Fantastic Inn

5 on October 07, 2017

Stayed for one night last week. Wonderful period inn in a great location. Rooms are well appointed and spotless. Very nice breakfast, and afternoon wine and snacks are a lovely treat. Leave your car in the free parking spot, and walk to all the historic district has to offer. We'll hopefully be back for a longer stay soon.


Fabulous Stay at Green Palm

5 on October 02, 2017

My husband and I spent two nights at the Green Palm Inn. We were met with an open door and very gracious hostess Diane. She introduced us to historic Savannah with a map, highlighting various areas. The Inn is beautifully appointed and the hospitality is warm and genuine. Our room was fantastic with plenty of room for clothes and toiletries. A jetted tub, attached magnifying mirror, wonderful soap hightlight the bathroom. The bed could not be more comfortable and the sheets were overly comfy. Breakfasts were terrific, flavorful and wonderfully presented. A bonus was afternoon appetizers/cookies and beverages. Diane served up terrific Savannah hospitality. We so enjoyed our first visit to Savannah and looking forward to returning to the Green Palm Inn.

Innkeeper Response
It was certainly my pleasure to have you both here at the Green Palm Inn. I love it when my guests get to know my Savannah! Just know you are a part of my family and you are always welcome here with us!!

A romanic get away

5 on July 30, 2017

Our first trip to Savannah and staying in a B&B. We just loved it! The lady that runs/owns the place is wonderful and helpful. We enjoyed her homemade breakfasts and conversations. The room and bathroom were very clean and set beautifully. For our return trip to Savannah I think we will be staying here again!


Wonderful B&B

5 on July 19, 2017

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this charming B&B. Mrs. Diane the inn keeper was a fantastic hostess. Her breakfast each morning was delicious, and we especially loved all her homemade cookies & treats in the afternoon. The Sago Palm room that we stayed in was beautifully decorated & very clean. The location of the B&B was in walking distance of all the activities we had planned in Savannah. We will definitely plan another visit to the Green Palm Inn!!


Highly Recommend Green Palm Inn

5 on July 13, 2017

This was the first time we ever stayed at a B&B. What an amazing experience! Diane certainly spoils her guests and made us feel right at home. She is so informative and assisted us with what to see and do while in Savannah. Our room was comfortable and the B&B is close to many things. It was the perfect weekend get-away.


Great as always!!

5 on July 09, 2017

My husband and I have stayed at Green Palm Inn several times over the last ten years. Green Palm Inn is more comfortable and appealing to us than any of the hotels in the area. The breakfast are wonderful as are the afternoon homemade snacks and wine hour. Diane is a great host. Highly recommend!
