Good place

3.6 on December 04, 2016

Everything was as expected. Service very good. Breakfast slightly under B&B, but still good Rooms were nice, and a good courtyard for privacy. Close to all there was to see, as it is outside of touristy River area, but only a few minutes away, and very residential. Only disruption was a couple of early bird ladies cackling too loud at 6:00 AM


Beyond our expectations

5 on December 04, 2016

This was a last minute booking so we didn't know what to expect. We were warmly greeted by CL. She showed us where we would be eating breakfast and then took us to our room. We walked into the Jackson suite--it was lovely! The suite was decorated with Victorian pieces. The bedroom opened up to the courtyard where we had an afternoon wine and cheese. The location was very convenient to all the sights. I should also mention Chef and Jeremy. Chef prepared a delicious breakfast and Jeremy made sure we had everything we needed. It was a wonderful stay. We can't wait to return!


Great Get-Away

The only thing that kept me up at night was worrying about the parking but the staff was very kind to keep me at ease!


Pleasantly Surprised!

3.8 on November 25, 2016

This was my first experience staying in a B & B, so I was a little hesitant. However, once I arrived I was blown away! Ms Pam, the receptionist was a "breath of fresh air!" Upon arrival she explained pertinent information, made sure parking was secured for my car, then took me to the building where my room was located. Breakfast was cooked to order . . MOST EXCELLENT! I felt right at home. This B & B has an excellent location; just park your car and let your feet do the walking to all the historical sights.


love this historic B&B

We loved touring the historic city of Savannah and staying in an historic B&B really added to the experience.


Savannah getaway

3.8 on November 09, 2016

First visit to Savannah, decided to try something different and stay in a bed and Breakfast. It did not disappoint. Will return to the city and stay at the Bed and Breakfast in the future to do more exploring in the historic district.


Good value Savannah

3.4 on November 01, 2016

Easy walking from most of Savannah. Rooms were attractive and comfortable. Would certainly stay again


Cute Inn with southern charm

3.6 on October 30, 2016

Great location on Gordon street and right near the mercer house. Just a few blocks from the shopping and dining main areas!


Romantic Getaway

4.0 on October 29, 2016

My husband and I stayed at the Savannah Bed and Breakfast for our 5th Year Anniversary. Savannah overall is a beautiful place to stay, so lodging in a historic building is icing on the cake. You will do some walking if you plan to visit River Street and some of the other major restaurants in the area, but the walk did not seem far at all, plus Savannah is a walking/biking friendly town. We enjoyed our stay in the Pulaski room. The service was better than expected and we were made to feel like we were at home. It was a clean place and the outside courtyard is beautiful to sit in. I would stay here again.


Quaint and fun experience

4.6 on October 25, 2016

I have never stated with a B&B before so I was unsure of what to expect. The staff was kind and welcoming. The resident cats were precious and really made the place feel like home. I loved having afternoon tea, bedtime cookies and milk, and breakfast made tonorder the next morning. I will be staying with Savannah Bed and Breakfast again.
