“Top notch staff and awesome room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

East Bay Inn provides the personal touch of a cheerful and professional staff and the elegance of top notch lodging in a downtown building with a very interesting history! Convenient to factors walk, river street, and a short walk to city market. The value of the wine & cheese in the evening and breakfast buffet in the morning nicely offsets the reasonable rate for this level of lodging in an optimum location. We stayed in a King deluxe room...ceiling about 16 feet! ..and tastefully furnished, with a view of Bay Street Live Oaks and an occasional glimpse of commercial container ships passing by on the Savannah River.

Room Tip: ...go for the deluxe room with high ceiling and view of bay street, if available.

My wife and I had an anniversary weekend with East Bay in Savannah. We love getting off the chain path and staying in interesting buildings. East Bay certainly fit the bill ... tons of character. And the location was awesome, basically one block off River Street.

We stayed in a King deluxe. The room was grand with 20 foot ceilings, two padded chairs and a loveseat. The room had nice historic looking furniture. We had two tall windows overlooking East Bay Street. The bed was also quite comfortable ... bedding always seems to be a hit or miss with lodging institutions; however this was a hit.

The staff was also very helpful. Sheila at the front desk arranged for our trolley tour where they conveniently picked us up one block over. Basically we parked our car and walked around the entire weekend. The historic district is roughly 2.2 miles square ... really easy walking to all points of interest.

We also took the Hearse ghost tour on Saturday night. I like the history and my wife likes the stories of spirits. It was something different ... be aware that the seating in the back is tight.

One note for potential improvement - the included breakfast is labelled "Deluxe" but that seems a bit of oversell. It had eggs, grits, some side meat, and a few cereal options ... fairly minimal. Given the price tag, maybe they could try a little harder to live up to the "Deluxe" branding.

I can't say enough good things about this Inn. We loved it. The location is great - right across the street from Riverstreet. The inn itself is lovely. The room was a very nice size, had nice details (brick & molding) and well-appointed with furnishings. The inn had a wine and cheese reception in the late afternoon. They also had a very nice, full hot breakfast. We did have to pay $12.00 per day to park (private lot for the inn), but that is less than many of the other hotels/inns in the area.
My husband and I agree that this is where we will stay when we go to Savannah.
I highly recommend the East Bay Inn!

Beautiful inn located a block from River street and close to all the action. Staff was friendly, especially Julie at the front desk, she was very helpful and informative. We got a free upgrade for staying longer. Definitely will come back..

This was our second stay at the East Bay Inn which we use for visiting family in Savannah.When organizing this visit we never considered staying elsewhere after being so satisfied with our choice on our previous trip.The location of the Inn across the street from the river district and central for visiting all the sites in historic downtown is nigh on perfect.The quality of the hotel and it's staff I would highly commend.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Bay Street will be quieter.

East Bay Inn, on East Bay Street, is a lovely boutique hotel directly across the street from the river district. Although the parking is limited at the hotel, accommodations have been made at a parking garage in very close proximity (approx. 1/2 block). It is permitted to drop luggage and check in while parked at the entrance of the hotel.

The staff is polite, warm and helpful. Wine and light fare were served just off the lobby each evening. You might feel a bit of the Gone With the Wind era with the elegant decor of the lobby. An elevator takes you to the bottom level of the hotel each morning for a quite decent breakfast buffet. A rustic charm (a brick outer wall) is blended with chic linens and decor. Bellman service is available. Finding such a lovely hotel that accepts pets is a real gem! Several very good restaurants, with mid-price range are within a few blocks. Tourist shopping and pubs are across the street. There is an elevator down to the river level not far from the hotel although it is a bit of challenge to find it. Wear your gripper soled shoes to walk down the ramps to the river if you don't use the elevator. It's 'pirate era' cobblestones.

Walk a few blocks away from the river to find downtown for ATMs, etc.

We stayed at the East Bay Inn for a couple nights for a quick trip to Savannah. The Inn location is very convenient close to all locations of interest. Front staff is very friendly and ready with suggestions for every activity. Our room was extremely spacious for the usual Inn experience; asked for a room with two queen size beds so I think we got an extra large room. Decor is pretty much granny style but the room was comfortable and clean. Bathroom was in need of cosmetic upgrades but everything was in working condition. Nice touch of free breakfast and refreshments and wine in the evening. Parking was tight so you can park in a city lot a couple blocks away. Not a problem with us because we are very active; could be a minor issue if you have mobility impairment. Overall a really nice, clean, quite place.
