I was really looking forward to staying 2 nights here but left a little deflated , there was nothing terribly wrong , it was just that there wasn't any particularly outstanding. The girls on check in were pleasant enough but didn't offer the much heralded lemonade or popcorn. The room was nicely decorated and the bed particularly comfortable despite the pillows resembling cushions. However the bathroom was small with an erratic shower . No amount of "extras" like moonpies , RC cola, popcorn , doughnuts or lemonade can make up for a room that unfortunately was inferior in size and cleanliness to the Super 8 we stayed in the night before. Though there was nothing I could pinpoint as being bad or negative and the price was reasonable for downtown it just didn't stand out as I had imagined it would.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 104 ,105, 106 next to stairwell and ice machine

Really cute hotel that's easy walking distance from City Market and other sites. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Loved the donuts and other kitschy touches. Wish the water pressure was better, but the price can't be beat for downtown Savannah.

I really loved this hotel - the decor, the music, the room, the breakfast dougnuts and the location! There is a big parking lot which is a big plus, and from there you can easily walk into town or take one of the trolley tours (recommended!) as the start just one block down.

The décor and atmosphere is right out of the 50s. The only thing missing was the juke box, although 50s music is piped throughout the common areas. Staff is friendly and the Inn is dog friendly as well, although they do charge $ 50.00 a night for your pooch. The rooms are clean and comfortable and everything right down to the phone is circa 1950. Free popcorn, lemonade, and donuts are available and the staff is very knowledgeable on what eateries are available and dog friendly as well. Inn is certainly in walking distance to shopping and night life activity in downtown Savannah. Additionally, they have some "period" bicycles that are available for you to explore the area. Not sure why they charge a $10.00 parking fee as other hotels in the area do not. They should reconsider that policy. Of course there's no pool or game room, but people coming there are mostly coming to explore and take in all that Savannah has to offer. Therefore I would not say it's a great place for the kids.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of the Thunderbird, but were woken frequently throughout the night by loud neighbors & a ridiculous amount of road noise. If you're a deep sleeper, you'd probably be fine, otherwise stay elsewhere.
