The Savannah Inn

Certificate of Excellence

Comfortable room, courteous service, and convenient location. Went down for a quick trip, and we were able to get a king room on the first floor. Easy access to the beach, and the owners made recommendations for local restaurants that served seafood.

Room Tip: Older hotel, does not have a fitness center or room service. Next time, will get a room on the seco...

The customer service in the office at this hotel is horrible! New owners as of 2013 and I have never had to deal with such rude attitudes in my life! Had I not already paid for the room, I would NOT have stayed at this hotel. Rooms are ok, but overpriced. Location is good, that's about the only thing this place has going for it. And if you are told one thing over the phone, do not expect the same when you arrive in person. The owner conveniently wasn't available all weekend to speak with (she was partying on the back deck and laying out at the pool) even with me giving her my number and asking her to call me the next day, so that I didn't interrupt her partying, I did not get a call. Office help had a arguing battle with us. Terrible experience!!! Stay at the Dolphin Lane, NOT HERE!

Of course, we are terribly upset to read your review. We are very sorry that your experience with us was so disappointing. We pride ourselves on customer service, so the experiences that you encountered during your stay are not typical of the Inn. I will speak to the manager on duty to determine how best to rectify these issues. We would encourage you to give the Inn another try.

For the price, this place can't be beat. Some of the rooms are slightly outdated, but were clean and comfortable. The access to the beach and "downtown" Carolina Beach is great. The new owners are very friendly and accommodating.

We were confused by the 5 star ratings...it was okay but not more than that. And travelers might be agreeable to that but they should know it up front. The Inn was in a good location...not in the middle of things but close enough to walk to many locations and an easy drive to other attractions. It has beach access and our 2nd floor room (in the building parallel to the ocean) had an ocean view from our balcony. I don't know if some rooms had been renovated but our room was worn and outdated...seriously worn but I will leave out the list. Only the bed to sit on. And the whole place seemed nice enough overall but similarly worn when viewed close up. Also on the plus side, the bed was comfortable, the staff was nice, it seemed reasonably clean.

Thank you for your honest review. The main building of the Inn, that you stayed in was originally built in the late 1950's so we are definitely an older beach hotel. We are constantly updating and renovating our property, and trying to improve it as much as we can. We are glad that you enjoyed our central location, and your ocean views, and noticed our cleanliness and friendly staff. We hope to see you back for a visit again soon.

The building is older but definitely worth the money. Very happy overall. Bed was super comfy. View was great within walking distance to bars and restaurants. Very cozy room. Oh and a fluffy cat that lives there! Lol

My husband and I stayed here for the first time last weekend. We could not have been happier with our accomadations. The room was very clean and the staff was very kind and helpful to meet any need or answer any question that we had. We have stayed in other local motels/hotels at Carolina Beach and I must say that The Savannah Inn went over and beyond my expectations and I am very picky about where I lay my head at night!!!!! We will definitely be staying here again soon.

My wife and I had a 2nd floor room overlooking the beach/ocean and loved the sights and sounds. The room with a king size bed was small but comfortable, efficient and clean. The frig was great for our many restaurant leftovers (great restaurants nearby). The private balcony was perfect for playing cards while listening to the surf - very relaxing. Working with Susan, the owner, was very nice. And the price for an oceanfront room was the best I found on the beach.

Room Tip: Choose the 2nd floor for a view of the beach.
