I chose this motel because it was the cheapest alternative that was the closest to our walking tour meeting place. I thought it would be fine because I spoke with someone personally that stayed here previously and she had a good experience. The location was convenient to all the things we wanted to see, but the bus station creeped us out a little bit. We checked into the hotel and got our room keys and went to our room. When we got in our room we immediately dropped our bags, changed clothes, and walked to a restaurant for dinner. So we didn't take the time to check out the room to make sure it was really clean. We should have done that, but we were excited to be there and we expected everything to be perfectly clean. When we returned later that night I decided to take a shower. The subway tile in the shower is a very nice touch. What was not nice was the hair on the shower wall, and it was not just one hair, it was about seven. The floor tile in the bathroom is also very dingy and I really did not want to touch it with my bare feet. I also felt that way about the stained carpet in the rest of the room. After my shower I was getting in bed and I pulled back the covers to find small pieces of dirt and dried grass on the sheets. It was like the sheets were not washed between stays. I also found a small, rust colored stain, which I assumed to be blood on one of the pillow cases. I was too tired to complain so I just brushed out the bed as best I could and threw the stained pillow to the floor. The bed was very comfortable and I slept great, however my mom did not. She said there were fire trucks and police cars riding by with there sirens on at all hours of the night and she found it very difficult to stay asleep. When she got up the next morning and made coffee, she found the coffee cups to be very dirty. We decided to go down to the "hot" complimentary breakfast and found doughnuts and coffee. We were expecting a little more, but we just let it go. I guess the coffee counts as the "hot" part of the breakfast. It would have been fine had we known the reality of it in advance, but the website says there are hot items available. When there is an S on the end of a word like item I expect for there to be more than one hot item and I don't expect for coffee to be counted as one of the items. I really regret not complaining, but I work in the service industry and I hate complainers and I didn't want to be one of "those people". I will not stay here again, nor will I recommend it to any of my friends or family. In fact, if they say they are going to Savannah I will be sure to tell them to not stay at the Thunderbird Inn. Next time I go Savannah I will pay forty or fifty more dollars to stay at a nice, clean hotel. One suggestion I do have is to the management staff: Check behind your maid every day and every room, or hire a trustworthy staff that really take pride in their work and do a good job every time. Even then, you should check behind them randomly just to be sure.
