It's hard to complain about a $50-$60 rate (with tax) in a fairly convenient location - in downtown Savannah. Here's the benefits: the rooms were clean enough (not the cleanest place I've ever stayed, but, again, for $50 it's hard to complain), it's very cute - they've done a really good job with the vintage approach, all employees that I...

While I wouldn't mind staying here again as it is SO affordable and nice enough, I think the next time I would splurge and stay right in the historic area of Sanannah. The Thunderbird Inn is like stepping back into the 50's (including the music they have piped into common areas). The staff are so incredibly helpful and kind that...

Thank you for staying with us! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and saw us as a value. I can understand your concern of walking at night. We are fortunate to be surrounded by dorms from our art college and some major attractions. So even though that it is dark and lots of shadows from the trees, it is as...

Stayed for 1 night and would stay again. My room was not large but clean and comfortable. Was able to walk easily to Market Street for dinner. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the moonpies and RC Cola.

You simply cannot beat the price and location of The Thunderbird Inn. The staff is friendly and courteous, the rooms are clean and have a fun retro decor and vibe, and the hotel is in the heart of Savannah, mere minutes walk to virtually every top location in the city.

My husband and I travel with our two small dogs, and this motel was accommodating to pets, fairly close to activities and very reasonably priced. There were a few minor improvements that could certainly be made, but hardly anything worth mentioning. So...maybe it's not perfect, but I would definitely stay here again! Thank you!

I'm going to write basically the same review I wrote for The Thunderbird Inn on Hotels.com. The pros are that the rooms are passably clean, the staff is passably polite, and there are a few quaint features of this 50s era motel. The cons are that the customer service is not great. They say health insurance is great until you...

The Thunderbird Inn had a great price for a location very near to the historic district in Savannah. The Thunderbird delivered on the retro pieces such as moonpies, RC Cola, and 60s music in the office. Unfortunately we had issues with the air conditioning and cleanliness in the room. Our airconditioner left black chunks on our counter and our clothes...

In reading reviews i thought this place would be clean but a little on the worn side. NOT AT ALL! The rooms have a retro look but are up to date. The bed was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. I can't say enough about the staff. When my husband said I was having problems with my knee they asked if...

We booked this room thru Groupon so we got a great deal. I started with that, because it was the most positive thing I could say. The location was pretty good, as it wasn't too far to walk to the historic area, and the staff was friendly. The rooms, however could definitely benefit from some updates and a thorough cleaning

The Thunderbird was a great place to stay. The price was great, the service was great and it was close to the places we wanted to visit. Donna at the front desk was super helpful and was always friendly and ready to answer questions. I would stay here again! Thanks!
