Don't let the outside put you off

The rooms and bathroom were spotless, a bit small but no too bad

We had a room on the ground level which I normally hate for noise etc, but even though it is on a busy road it was pretty quiet at night, ask for a room at the back for a quieter stay

The bed was super comfy

It was a few minutes stroll to the water front and the historic district

Free WiFi worked well and the room also had wolfgang puck coffee

Stayed: October 2015, travelled with family

There is a reason this place is cheaper than other places around it. They also charge for parking --- stayed one night and were charged for 2 days parking which is absurd. Awful location in a terrible area, just pick elsewhere. If they want to charge me for parking at least make the parking lot feel safe and do something about the absurd number of homeless people around the hotel.

This was our first time staying at the Best Western Plus in Savannah Georgia. The hotel is located on W Bay Street, and is located in the historic section, we used our car only once and that was to go to dinner one night, otherwise we walked. Everything really is within walking distance, there is so much to do and see. The staff at the hotel were very very polite and always willing to help out in any way. Our room was very clean, it was located on second floor (street side) and the noise from the street subsided early evening and really was no bother, just alot of people having fun. We would definitely stay at this hotel again!!! Breakfast was simple and tasty and plentiful.

Went to visit Savannah's historic district for the first time. Wanted to make sure to be near the action. The Best Western is located very close to the free shuttles that service the historic district so it was a good location.
The good points - very friendly staff and the concierge, Mary was wonderful! Free breakfast and wi-fi are included in the stay. The location was great for access to the historic district as well as River Street, a very busy night place.
The not so good points - being close to River Street, there was street noise to deal with. The room actually had a white noise machine to help, but we just kept the fan running on the a/c to block out noise. Being close to the river, there was the occasional ship horn to deal with. The rooms were not very modern and the service was erratic - one day, no shampoo, but 2 conditioners left. We drank coffee in the room. The next day, coffee was replenished, but no cups were left.
If I were to visit again, I wouldn't rule out the Best Western, but I would explore other options as well.

The hotel is very close to the River Walk and therefore within walking district of all the sights. It is a large hotel which is very busy and fronts one of the main highways. It is probably best if you can get a room at the back as we did, but inevitably there can be some noise coming from late night revellers leaving the bars on the River Walk. There is of course a parking charge but I considered it to be reasonable for a big city. The breakfast room could be rather busy as the hotel also caters for coach parties. All in all I think this hotel is great value considering its situation.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have no traffic noise.
