Hotels in downtown Savannah were at a premium and so, in complete ignorance of the city geography, we chose this 'midtown' alternative. Being reluctant to pay the rental car premium for a satnav [largely because we still have an old fashioned,probably misplaced, self image of the independent traveller] we found ourselves trawling the outskirts of Savannah like latter day flying Dutchmen hopefully trying to locate the hotel. In fact we were simply inept because although the hotel is quite a way from the city centre it is actually quite accessible via a major route out of town and after the first problem we happily drove in and out of downtown. Parking downtown was actually better [and cheaper] than we anticipated and traffic lighter.
The hotel was more expensive over the weekend [$180 a room] than on the weekday night we stayed. It seemed popular with Memorial Day weekend visitors who took over the small pool area but without ever being intrusive. The rooms were comfortable and spacious for two; using the additional sofa bed might have made them cramped. The bathroom area was on the small side but served its purpose. There was a designated bar/eating area and a restricted range of food was prepared to order; there was also provision of cereals, sandwiches and the like. Service at the front desk was helpful. The surrounding environment was mostly made up of malls and a bit sterile but you could visit a range of stores and food outlets quite easily.
Overall not the best value chain hotel we found on a long road trip but not a bad, reasonably economical, base for visiting Savannah and certainly worth considering for that purpose.
