“A Five Star Property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We stayed for three nights in February. The property was filled with guests every night attesting to its popularity. Our room was in the back overlooking the attractive interior courtyard and proved to be very quiet. The concierge staff was exceptionally helpful with dinner recommendations and reservations. It is located just a few blocks from the Mercer House which is a must see. Each afternoon there is complimentary wine and cheese. The breakfast was delicious each day and the staff was helpful in accommodating my wife's need for a gluten free breakfast. This is a fun and charming place to stay where you can feel pampered.

Room Tip: Room facing the interior courtyard will be quieter than those in the main house where there is more...

I joined my brother and his family for a mini vacation in Savannah. I can't imagine staying in a better place! The Eliza Thompson house is charming, comfortable and lovely.
Our room was spacious and well appointed, breakfast and happy hour was fantastic! (Great Food) We enjoyed having the ability to walk to near by shops and restaurants. We took a Trolley tour, visited the Mercer House (a MUST) and took in the sites on the waterfront.
You have to stay here at least once! You won't regret it!

Our favorite place to stay in Savannah
Wine hour is a great way to meet fellow guests and get ideas where to go and where to eat and more travel spots to visit. We go there in February and October
October is really our favorite time.

Went for a long weekend with some friends. The house was everything I expected from a historic building. Expect some creaks & character! Beds were super comfy, breakfast every morning was delicious and the happy hour was fantastic each day. The B&B even provided menus from some of the local restaurants, which was helpful.
I had a king size bed room that opened up into the courtyard. I was able to hear the fountain all night, which I loved. The bathroom was SMALL but, we weren't in the room all that often, anyway. This is one of the only B&Bs that has a courtyard, so enjoy. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.
Jones Street is one of the most beautiful streets ever. This was my first experience at a B&B and I will definitely be going again! It is within walking distance of everything-River Street, the squares, shopping district, etc. Be aware, this B&B does NOT allow children. It was perfect for our "mom's weekend away" and would be fantastic for a couple's getaway.

Room Tip: If you are a couple, choose a room looking onto the courtyard, if possible.

We stayed overnight at the Thompson House, an anniversary gift from our children. The hotel is attractive from the street & the reception area was well furnished tho a bit shabby. Our bedroom was pleasant and well furnished except for the bathroom. This space made Motel 6 look upscale. The toilet was small and low, the wall and floor coverings were all plastic, the shower faucet didnt work and I could get no hot water at all for a shower. I finally gave up because I didn't want to freeze in cold water. The same situation with the sink, the faucet was cheap and didn't work, I never could get hot water in the sink. This bathroom needs to be completely redone to at least a minimum standard. The towels and toiletries were both way below standard for an hotel of this type. The breakfast was good, the dining room and courtyard pleasant, and the staff seemed to care about the hotel clientele.

I truly enjoyed this bed and breakfast during a week long stay at the end of February. The location is very convenient to the historic district. Don't miss Mrs Wilkes Boarding House next door for a fun and wonderful meal.

William, whose title I do not know, was a great help during our stay. He was very professional and always ready to go the extra mile.

If you decide to go, try to stay in the main house. The carriage house rooms are nice, but the interior rooms are amazing and the same price.

Breakfast is served every morning and offers a pretty good variety -- although the grits sat there in a huge pot every morning, almost untouched. The lady who prepares breakfast every morning is an intimidating and wonderful lady. If I could muster the nerve to ask her for anything, I always felt both satisfied and scolded. :). In fact the staff as a whole went out of their way to accommodate any request.

Room Tip: Stay inside of the house!!! The fountain in the courtyard is nice but sometimes loud. The air cond...
