average, need additional $13 for parking

service is average, free breakfast, but the quality is not that great. It is not a great stop if you are just for strip break (overnight lodge only).

Labor Day Weekend stay

This hotel was great. Perfect location and close to everything. The staff was great and the rooms were clean. My only neg. comment would be the bathrooms were small and somewhat dated, but overall fine. The beds were great and the rooms had a nice big flat screen tv. The breakfast was pretty good too. I would certainly stay here again. Rob from Atlanta

August Road Trip

I chose this hotel for its location as well as having on-site parking. The staff were courteous and friendly, the room clean, the bed very comfortable, the location perfect for walking throughout Historic Savannah. The bath tub was not clean to my satisfaction. I tried lifting up the tub mat to scrub away the previous person's hair only to find back mold on the tape. Next stay, I'll ask for a different room if I'm not pleased with the cleanliness.

Weekend away

I have stayed here before and can see it has been updated. The room was beautiful and clean. Enjoyed breakfast each morning. The location could not be any better. Right next to City Market where I could hear the live music from my room. Within walking distance to any historic downtown site you want to go to. Loved it!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Take guided tours first and then go back and walk the neighborhood. Otherwise, you'll walk in circles and not know what you are looking at. Shops sell walking tour guide books with 4 sample walking tours. Great $6 investment for sure!

Dated, but clean, convenient, affordable

Pros: Pd $95 for one Saturday night, so very affordable. Very convenient location to city center. Nice to see the trend of WiFi without an extra charge. Cons: Website says they just completed a $6 million (US) renovation. Lobby is nice, but my hall and room were about 30 years dated, except for the newer TV.

Served It's Purpose

I was looking for an inexpensive, centrally located hotel in the city of Savannah. This hotel fulfilled all of those requirements. The room was clean, though it needed some updating. The staff was very helpful as well as knowledgeable of the services/attractions in the area. They offered a morning buffet breakfast along with iced water and coffee in the lobby 24/7.

Great location. Great staff

Have to say the staff were great. The hotel is smack in the middle of historic Savannah. It's certainly value for moony.

IT WAS NOT GREAT

The hotel was conveniently located but it was not what I expected. The hotel smelled slightly and the rooms reminded me of a motel room. The bathroom was tiny and the rugs smelled slightly. The breakfast service was acceptable but not exciting and the hotel staff although reasonably efficient was not friendly. The hotel would never be my first choice of place to stay in the future
