This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast. I wasn't totally sure what to expect. I was traveling with my great aunt who was a veteran at B&Bs across the globe, so I deferred mostly to her opinion when choosing the place. I have to admit, it was lovely! It's a beautiful old house with well appointed,...

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in November in a courtyard room. I didn't realize that the courtyard rooms are not historic. That section was built later than the house and is almost motel-like. Our room was still nice but the bathroom was small. There are 13 courtyard rooms and 12 rooms in the main house....

We really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was excellent, breakfast and appetizers and desserts were wonderful. Be aware there are 3 floors, no elevator. Also, street parking only. You can buy a parking pass. The location is perfect, old school residential.

Found this while searching on Trip Advisor for an historic inn within walking distance of interesting places in downtown Savannah. So glad we did because from start to finish it was an unexpected pleasure. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished although space for luggage and hanging clothes was a bit tight. The included breakfast had several nice choices each...

If you want the Old Southern Charm experience, this is the place to go. Located at the beautiful Jones St lined with trees and cobblestones, it was just majestic walking to and from the house. We were lucky enough to score parking across the street so we just walked the whole time going around. Front desk was friendly and helpful!...

I surprised my wife with a weekend here for her birthday and couldn't have made a better choice! The service and atmosphere are both top notch. The staff is incredibly helpful with great dinner suggestions and they even make reservations for you.

On a recent road trip to Florida, I decided to take my time and indulge in a night in Savannah. I chose the Eliza Thompson House because I was traveling solo, and neither the hubs nor my teenage son is into the Historic Inn thing. This was all for me! The House is absolutely beautiful. The staff is friendly without...

I stayed here for two nights before heading over the river to a convention as a way to check out the city. After staying here and then at the Westin next to the convention center, I can say for certain that I would stay here again for sure. While there are certain areas of the hotel that could use a...

Fantastic. From the moment we arrived we have been treated like royalty. Kelly and Kevin came running out to make sure we parked on the right side of the street for street cleaning and took out luggage. We were checked into our room and back downstairs making tour reservations, having complementary wine and appetizers within minutes. The inn is impeccably...
