    The location was good, accommodations good, room comfortable, staff pleasant.

    Noise ... being close to scad - students out till wee morning hours and quite loud as was traffic. Problem with door - maybe. Would recommend Thunderbird if that gets resolved. Was hoping for a good night's sleep as I had a 6 hour drive the following day - got to sleep around 3 a.m. and had to wake up at 7 a.m.

  • Older travelers

    Retro and handy to everything in historic savannah

  • Single

    Great retro vibe and decent location. Historic Savannah is not big, so many places are walkable from the Thunderbird. Rooms are really clean and the staff is super friendly for a very decent price.

    It's a bit removed from the rest of the city, but still very central. 5 minute walk from central Savannah. The breakfast isn't very consistent, but there are plenty of decent breakfast and sandwich places in Savannah.

  • Family with children

    I want to thank you so much for a wonderful stay. The people were friendly and always right there to help if you needed it. We will be coming back soon and staying at the 611 Thunderbird Inn Savannah. God Bless, and thank you for helping us enjoy our first trip to Savannah. Sure hope when my wife and I have our 37th wedding September you have room for two.. Thank you again. Jimmy, and Beverly Castro

    There was only one thing that happen that wasn't to bad is that the people one room over was drinking and smoking a little loud. We didn't say anything to them and the quieted down some what. They were parked next to us and my daughter found the word pussy written on her car in the dust that was collected. My grands didn't see it before we got it off. That could be done by anyone though. And has no reflections on you or you Inn please know that. I just didn't want the grads to see it and they didn'T. Lol Some people huh?

  • Single

    Funky, eco-friendly, convenient. Friendly staff.


  • Single

    Friendly, had everything I needed for a short stay. Free Wifi,coffee, breakfasts.

    Room not very light.

  • Couple

    I loved the price, look, and location

    The walls are really thin, so noise was a bit of an issue

  • Group of friends

    Bedding and friendly, professional staff.

    Sparse continental breakfast.

  • Couple

    The location was good; within walking distance to the historic part of Savannah. All of the staff were incredibly friendly. Even in the parking lot people were greeting guests with enthusiastic "hellos". The kitsch aspect was cute without being over the top. I would recommend this place to friends passing through.

    The rate seemed a little high for what would normally be a cheaper hotel but I assume that the location plays a part in the pricing. Although, we did find a B&B closer to the river at the same price for the same night (we ended up going with Thunderbird because we knew we would be checking in late). I probably wouldn't recommend this place to vacationers staying for more than a night or two, or people with more elevated taste. But I would stay there again for sure.

  • Couple

    A well priced and fun place in walking distance from the Savannah tourist attractions.

    It is a motel as opposed to a hotel in many senses. We arrived at 9pm but the staff member on duty was doing jobs in the laundry at the time, so we had to go find her. Not a huge problem, but checking in/out could have been smoother.

  • Older travelers

    All staff were friendly and helpful.

    Toilet did not flush, light bulbs needed replacing, safety door lock was broken, we did not get the King suite as agreed in advance, not enough towels and wash cloth's, noise all night from people and car horns, no coffee replacement for second morning, and my credit card charged an extra $125 for smoking or pets and we did neither. I expect this to be refunded in a timely manner.

  • Older travelers

    Staff was very polite and attentive, room amenities were excellent, location was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • Older travelers

    Good location, reasonable price - except pet fee.

    Pet fee of $50. is exorbitant.

  • Older travelers

    Location and Krispy Kreme donuts

    Very poor matress

  • Couple

    Excellent customer service and awesome rooms!
