Overall very nice, good location walking distance to all the main attractions and close to Forsyth park. Breakfast was good, friendly staff, room was comfortable. If anything the staff was too eager to help if you prefer to plan and explore on your own.

The Amethyst Inn is a beautiful old Victorian home set in the historic district of old Savannah. Stepping into the foyer immediately takes you back a century to a quieter, more genteel time. The innkeepers, Rocky (a former military helicopter pilot) and his charming wife Jane, are absolutely disarming with their charm and Southern warmth. Rocky has maintained the inn perfectly -- it's spotless, with generous room sizes and amenities. Jane is lovely and welcoming, and she is a great cook! Emphasize the breakfast at this B&B -- delicious quiches, pastries, pancakes, sausages, and of course, grits. Breakfast is communal in a beautiful formal dining room. Rocky and Jane give it their all, and speaking with them for a half hour made my feel that they were lifelong friends. They are also a tremendous source of information for visiting this fascinating, historical town -- whether you want to take a trolley ride all around the historic district, imagine yourself in the atmosphere of old Savannah in a nighttime tour of the city's haunted sites, stop by the Lady and Sons, or just relax over a cocktail at waterfront Rocks atop the Bohemian hotel, R & J will get you there with ease and with all the information you need. We had visited Savannah once before, and found the city somewhat tired and uninteresting. Thanks to Rocky and Jane, we not only felt kinship with the city, but discovered how charming, interesting, and fun it can be. Make sure Savannah is on your bucket list, and when you visit, let Jane and Rocky make you feel like you're visiting family, in their beautiful Amethyst Inn.

The historic Inn was a very pleasant place with a family feel in a good location. Everyone is welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The breakfast buffet was very nice. Definitely recommend it.

This Victorian-esq home is located in the historic district, not far from Forsyth park. It is beautiful, includes three floors and a pool in the back. What is most striking about this Inn? The innkeepers are fabulous. Rocky and Jane are fun, engaging, helpful and very accommodating. It is obvious they love their job and have the gift of true hospitality. Rocky is the epitome of a southern gentleman. Jane cooks continually and keeps "sweet treats" at various places around the dining area of the inn. They have the most delicious, and refreshing water. (They put fresh, sliced oranges in it.) The breakfast is delicious -- egg bakes, sweet breads, waffles and real maple syrup. Love this place and we hope to visit again!

Kind and helpful staff, satisfying breakfast, and good location. The price is right as well! We would come back. From a young Los Angeleno married couple.

PS: Is the 200 character minimum really necessary?

We decided to escape the rain in Florida and were looking for an excuse to go to Savannah again anyway so on short notice, we checked and found that the Amethyst had one room available. We are so glad they did and in fact, we stayed 3 days instead of 2 as planned. Rocky and Jane were exceptional hosts, always helpful and cheerful. Their dining suggestions were right on track and their knowledge of tour options were impressive. Coffee was out by 7 for early risers and the breakfast options were excellent. Our room was clean and neat and nothing that we might have needed was missing. This is a great place to stay and we would definately book here again. There is no doubt that our expectations were exceeded on our visit to the Amethyst.

This is the perfect choice for couples, families, or girls getaway. The inn is within walking distance of all the historic district so no car rental is necessary. It was my birthday, and Jane & Rocky made it extra special. I've traveled extensively and there is no doubt this inn offers the BEST personal attention to detail I have experienced- from quality of tableware setting to "outdoor fresh" linens. Breakfast, served at 9:00, was delicious! Jane and Rocky are professionals with a keen knowlege of the inn business with the unique human interaction that makes an inn a home complete with a "pet friendly" environment.

Room Tip: Our Magnolia Room can be converted from King to twin
