The location alone makes this hotel, the staff is the cherry on top, everyone is so helpful, friendly and kind. The hotel could use some painting and our room could have been cleaner but we will stay here again definitely!

We stayed at the River Street Inn for the first time during Oktoberfest 2014...although we are Savannah Veterans. We absolutely could not have been more pleased...the room was very nice and the view/location was excellent. While the patio is a bit small, it was perfect for standing and looking. Most of the time that we were the room during the...

What we did appreciate about River Street Inn was the Old World Charm, and the view of the River. The room was ok, but nothing special. If you or someone you are travelling with have any difficulties walking long distance, then I recommend you staying somewhere else. It was like walking through a maze to find our room. Depending on...

First of all, this is a truly great place to stay. The staff, the ambiance, the look and the location are all top notch. The room facing the river had a very small, delicate balcony that made one wonder if it would hold our weight, but the view was terrific, overlooking River Street and directly across the river from the...

This is a historic Inn, right in the heart of River Street. If you are looking for a "chain hotel" with the amenities of a chain hotel, this is not the place for you. With that being said, I have to brag on this place......first of all, there is not one person on staff without a smile and good 'ole...

Although this is a historical hotel it is very well maintained. Couldn't ask for better location. The bed was comfy, room clean and spacious. My only regret would be we didn't stay on the riverside. We had a problem with the ac in the room and the staff promptly moved us to another room.

Beautiful inside and historic outside. Classy rooms and comfy beds. Loved the feel of the place including the atrium and the uneven and sometimes creaky floors in the common areas. Room was very quiet and we did not here anyone walking above us. Access was great on the street-side or directly to the river side. Views were also great from...

Kevin, Thank you for your wonderful comments about our Inn! I have to agree that the balcony rooms are the best way to really experience River Street and am happy that you felt the room was quiet and comfy once the balcony door closed. Thanks again!!

Our first visit to Savannah was enhanced by our stay at this great, guest oriented hotel. Location could not have been better, and the combination of history and modern appointments was terrific. We really enjoyed the complimentary Happy Hour with the wonderful views of ships entering and leaving the harbor. We needed a lift to our Thanksgiving dinner, and Steve,...

Fun, fun, fun hotel! The room was bright and relatively spacious with floor to ceiling windows and a great balcony overlooking the river. A perfect perch for the Christmas boat parade and people watching on River Street. Beds were comfortable and the ancient fireplace added a nice touch.

Amazing! Hands down. My favorite place I have ever stayed overnight. The lobby to the rooms was incredible. Reminded me of an old 60s/90s Christmas movie scene. The staircases were something I have never seen before and was thrilled to have gotten to stay here. The rooms were old and filled with history. Brick walls, but still very modern. The...
