Classy Hotel, Classy Staff and a retro vibe that makes you want to stick Eddie Cochrane and Buddy Holly on a loudspeaker and blast the hell out of the neighbouring hotels !!. You couldn't find a fault with this place even if you took a magnifying glass to it and seeing they'd had Hurricane Matthew visit a couple of weeks...

Great theme hotel. The coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts were a nice touch. We brought our dog and they had a dog bowl and bed already in our room. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. We would stay there again.

Overall my stay was nothing more than expected. The bathroom was very small and outdated. There was no soap in the room for me to wash my hands, and the room next to us had a yappy dog that wouldn't shut up. Other than that it is a cute little hotel and not too far of a walk to get...

Loved our 3 night stay here. Very short walk to the historic centre of the city. No need to use our car at all once we arrived. Loved the whole retro theme of the place. Bedrooms were large and immaculate. Krispy Kreme doughnuts for breakfast were a great addition and enjoyed the daily cola and moonpie delivery to our room!...

The location for the Thunderbird Inn is excellent. We didn't move our car. It is a short walk to most places we went. We felt safe at all times. The streets are well lit and the people are great. The road noise is a little much. I don't know that there is anything that can really be done about it...

This place needs a lot of management help. There are broken thermostats, the wifi needed reset multiple times and broken locks on the door risk safety for guests. The walls are paper thin, you can hear everything your neighbors are doing.

The only con with this place (besides being a tad overpriced) is the surrounding area, which is LOUD. Lots of traffic, random fireworks, etc. I brought earplugs and was glad I did. The place itself, however, is totally retro and totally fun. I had to giggle at the in-room phone, and I loved the music. The bed was comfortable and...

Love this place - very clean - and comfortable - where else can you go and have moon pies and RC Cola waiting for you - and donuts in the morning - short distance to everything in old Savannah - rates are excellent - and staff is wonderful - give this place a try - you will not be unhappy

Room was adequate, bathroom was very small and there were no closets or dressers. Bed was very comfortable. I have nothing else to add. Savannah is marvelous and we visit twice a year. Looking forward to a return trip.
