Reviewed 29 January 2013

The staff at the East Bay make all the difference. They are very helpful and very friendly. We stayed in a double Queen with views onto the street on the 3rd floor, which was quiet and spacious. The height of the ceiling makes the room seem much bigger. The happy hour is a nice way to unwind and meet fellow travellers and the hotel staff kept it well stocked with Australian wines and local snacks. Parking is on a first come basis, but there are alternatives close by. The hotel is really well located for walking the beautiful streets of Savannah.

My friends and I spent two nights at East bay Inn.
The great, huge quaint double room facing the river is said to be hunted by Charlie, one of Savannah's ghosts...but unfortunately we did not meet him!
The high ceiling room was amazing, well decorated with a large bathroom, a lot of towels and two bathrobes. Generally speaking, the charming atmosphere was truly enhanced by gloomy lampshades and the music provided by a pleasant alarm clock...quite surprising features for a hotel room! Every night they served some wines and cheese appetizers in the lobby.
The complimentary breakfast is quite good,except for the overall cleanliness...they'd better take more care in washing dishes and flatware...

No surprises here - the Inn was just as it looked online. The rooms have that old world charm and tastefully decorated. Being an old building, you will experience the creaky floors, some thin walls, and the lack of enough electrical outlets. Location is great, walk across the street and down the alley to get to the river front. Loved the stories about Charlie, the spirit that inhabits the Inn - never got to see him, but that was quite alright. Some must do's: walk down and visit the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, totally breathtaking inside; walk to the river front and do a River Boat Dinner Cruise, the food was plentiful and delicious and last but not least walk to Forsyth Park to enjoy the beautiful grounds.

Room Tip: The Rooms on East Bay Street are fairly noisy, stay on the opposite side. Also the rooms on the 3rd...

We thoroughly enjoyed East Bay Inn. From the warm greeting by "Melvin the Bellman" to our check-out we were delighted. Our room was spacious, with a queen bed, small settee, 2 arm chairs and a large desk. It had 14' ceilings and an exposed brick wall that dated to 1854. Coffee in the lobby was available 24-7 and there was a wine reception in the evening.

We are glad we stayed here the one night we spent in Savannah: We had a splendid room with a four poster bed, the staff was absolutely lovely, the location perfect for discovering downtown - the only setback was the unedible breakfast (whch one had to pay for though)... therefore only "average", sorry.
