Great location. We got the river view rooms, and even at an angle, the river view was nice. The combination of the location, the view and comfort of this hotel made the Savannah experience all the more special for our guest. It is the second time we stayed here. The breakfast buffet is also very ...
The hotel was fairly modern and set in a great location - we could easily walk to everything around the Savannah city center. Take earplugs!! Our room faced the river and was on the road, so it was very noisy since the windows were super thin. Our room was also next to the ice machine that kept us ...
A short family vacation trip to Savannah. Check in was very smooth and we were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving. The hotel is close to the Riverwalk and to other interesting "touristy" shops. We walked everywhere so we parked the car and did not use it until we were on our way home. Some ...
Not good. Not bad. Good water pressure, room was clean, but bed was hard. Not a lot of sound insulation, could clearly hear every noise from hallway and a lot from surrounding rooms. Fitness room adequate but not great. Good views of the golf course lake. Overall mediocre hotel.
My husband and I went with our son and his class to Tybee. The kids stayed at the 4H Burton Center and we chose to stay at a hotel. It was wonderful to go back to the hotel after 10-12 hrs with the kids and take a hot shower and climb into a cozy bed for the night. If I make it back to Tybee for ...

Coming from our stay jn Atlanta, Savannah was like a breath of fresh air and the East Bay Inn definitely added to the experience. It's small, intimate atmosphere and incredibly friendly and helpful staff made us feel "right at home." (a big shout out especially to Hank - best ever greeter, chef and general factotum). The location in between the River Walk and the city center Mansions was perfect. The Happy Hour was fun to get to mingle with the other guests and on a small enough scale that you could actually talk to them. The snacks were good, however, the wine definitely needs to be upgraded.....
Travelling with two small children isn't always pleasant, but the hotel was great. The staff was very friendly, the hotel was clean and breakfast was delicious! The pancake machine was a welcome change to the standard waffle make and the bacon was fresh and not too greasy.
Bed was broken and we wanted to Cancel second night so we left and they charged us any way.
It was just what we needed for one night… A bed that was comfortable with lots of pillows and temperature control… We decided not to take shower due to the uncleanliness of the tub but there was hot and cold water and we were content with stay
