This was our best "girls' weekend" getaway yet! From booking to arrival to service to cleanliness to the fabulous breakfast every day, Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn was absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much for a great long weekend!


Lovely Stay at the Inn

I had a lovely stay at the Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn. The accommodations were lovely. I especially enjoyed the covered porch and courtyard. The staff was courteous and helpful, even when I didn't check in until 11:00 pm! It is in a great location - an easy walk to most of the historic district. I felt very safe as a woman traveling by myself.


Old charm...outstanding!

Loved it. Very comfortable and convenient. Furnishings were perfect and breakfast was superb every morning.


Great Savannah Stay!

4.8 on July 05, 2017

We stayed here fro 3 nights during our vacation to Savannah for our anniversary. The room was very charming...had that historic home feel to it. From the time you pull up to it, you have that Savannah charm that is drawing you in. The staff was very helpful. By staying there, they gave us a parking pass that worked on all meters across downtown Savannah (everywhere you go in downtown, there are meters from 8-5, so this helped by not having to worry about "feeding" the meter). The walls are not very insulated, so you can hear people in the rooms next to you if they are a little loud. Only a block from Forsyth Park, across the street from Chatham Square, and only minutes from every other square and strip in Savannah. This will definitely be on our list of places to stay if we go back to Savannah.


Loved this B&B

We enjoyed our stay. Location was great. Uber does have a hard time finding the place, they seem to want to pick up in the alley behind it. Food was good and loved the times we could eat. Only suggestion was a TV you could see from the bed in the Masters. Other than that, it was great.

The Savannah Bed and breakfast in walking convenient to the historic district. They had a room available on the ground floor which was great because steps were an issue. The room was as pictured and clean. Breakfast was fresh since they cook it when you arrive. Could have used a small refrigerator since it was in the 90's and cold water would have been nice. Otherwise, we enjoyed staying there.


Short but sweet trip to Savannah

5 on June 26, 2017

Loved the Masters suite. Great size and the only downfall was the TV can't be seen from the bed, but tablets with Netflix solved that problem. Food was good and service was great. Location is convenient to everything. Never drove the car, Uber was very convenient.


Historic comfortable Inn

3.2 on June 20, 2017

We were disappointed with a few details of our 6 night stay. One day our room did get cleaned or towels replaced. Another day the room was cleaned but the door was left unlocked and open a few inches. The breakfasts were very good but almost never were we served what we had requested on the cards provided for our use. When we had complaints CL never was willing to do anything to solve the problem, for instances the day we did not receive room cleaning we needed toilet paper and facial tissues. Her first answer was that the room cleaners were done for the day. Eventually she did have them delivered. Another time the bulb in the bad side lamp had burned out. We were told that the supplies were locked up - and she followed me out the door locking up the B&B for the night on her way home. It felt like she couldn't be bothered.


Fabulous stay

This was one of the best vacations my mother and I have ever taken. Your bed and breakfast was so perfect - we won't stay anywhere else from now on. Thank you all for your hospitality. Highly recommended to anyone!!!


So peaceful and comfortable. Great friendly staff. Breakfast was yummy.
