My family and I booked 2 rooms at this Inn. I was very excited to stay here since I had admired the outside of the hotel for years. I could not have been more disappointed. Upon arrival, we were told the parking lot (which is across the street) was full. Then, we walked in to the hotel and were overwhelmed... More

My husband and I were so excited to stay here on our trip to Savannah. We picked this inn for our 3 night stay because of the location and the history of the building. We were highly disappointed minutes after settling into our room. The toilet would not flush properly and almost overflowed. We notified the front desk and they... More

Great location but must have had horrible water flooding on 4th floor area . Smelled like moldy stinky locker room. Couldn't move due to holiday week. Bed like concrete and pancake pillow. I had to spray cologne in air all over bend pillows just to be able sleep with the odor

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... More

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.

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.

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.
