This is a no frills motel. The room is a decent size and includes the bed, nightstands, 2 chairs, and a small table. There is no closet or dresser, but there is a small hanging space. There isn’t a phone in the room. There is a TV with a floating table underneath. The bathroom is small, doesn’t have hot water, but does include shampoo/conditioner/shower gel. The sink is located in the room with a large counter with a few short shelves underneath. The A/C was fantastic. It’s located close enough to attractions, but don’t walk the wrong way through the housing project. Parking is $10/night. Free mini moon pie and RC cola on check in. Breakfast is coffee/tea and donuts only which was a disappointment. It was very loud a night with doors, thin walls, and some road noise. Free wifi worked well. For the rates it is totally worth it!

Room Tip: maybe away from the stairs

I Wanted to surprise my dad so I didn't tell him where we was staying the first night of our trip. We only stayed one night due to having prior arrangements with family. He really enjoyed the vibe and the location was convinent!

Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very basic, but clean. For being where it is, I found it to be quiet. I always looked forward to the lemonade when I got back from working all day. The little pet run was a nice touch, a place my dog could wander without a leash. And the magic fingers bed massage is a nice nostalgic touch.

The staff was excellent, they are an absolute credit to the place. The location was great, within walking distance to bars/restaurants and river street. The room was clean and comfy and very spacious. Absolutely value for money.

This was our first visit to Savannah on our trip down the east coast, we stayed at this hotel for one night.

Location:
Easy to find, straight off the bridge. Only a 10/15 minute walk to the port bars.

Room:
It was modern, clean and we had free RC Cola and Moon Pies upon arrival. The two let downs of the room were the paper thin walls which meant we could hear next doors TV which was on until the early hours of the morning and the bathroom is very small.

Food/drink:
We had some of the free popcorn which was great, we also had a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee in the morning which is also included in the room price.

Service:
The lady on reception was welcoming and helpful, otherwise we had minimal contact with the staff.

Value:
For the location it is great value vs other hotels in the area. It is $10 per night for parking which we didn't know before we arrived, so be aware.

Overall:
I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Savannah for a day or two on a budget. Otherwise the hotels on the waterfront looked really nice - but pricey!
