“Excellent end to a Valentine's weekend Road Trip”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

My wife and I went for a 5 night road trip to the Smoky Mountains. We planned for an overnight stay in Savannah on our way home and booked the Best Western due to its price point and proximity to the River Street area. This couldn't have been a more wonderful end to a great weekend. This place was amazing...much better than expected. They were working on renovations, and our room must have been one of the recently renovated ones. You can definitely tell that this owner takes pride in his establishment, and wants his customers to be happy. We didn't take advantage of the free breakfast because we had plans to eat at Huey's on River Street. Although, I did venture to get coffee while we were getting ready. From what I saw, the free breakfast looked on the upper end of what you will find at most hotels. All in all, this was a great place, with a great location. We will be back!

Friendly staff and the concierge was fabulous help in steering us on our visit of the historic district. This is an older property which has had the rooms updated. It is right on Bay Street and if you are on that side of the building you will hear traffic all night. They actually have "white noise" machines in the rooms for your use. Overall it provided a place to stay but nothing fancy. It is right at the edge of the historic district and therefore is within walking distance of all the attractions.

Room Tip: Request a room not facing Bay Street

The hotel is undergoing a renovation so some work is being done in the hotel. The rooms are ok and the bathrooms look like they were recently remodeled. The hotel is just off the street and there is traffic noise but they do have white noise machines in the rooms to use if you so desire. Breakfast was good and above average. The concierge in the hotel was excellent as she gave us wonderful tips and ideas on what to do, what to see and where to eat. If you go there make sure you talk to the concierge! The location to the historic district and the city market was perfect.

Room Tip: Maybe a room facing the back would be a better choice.

Good News! I am happy to annouce that the new flooring has been installed in 75% of the guest rooms with the final completion expected prior to March 1st. In addition our lobby renovations are fast approaching completion and with any luck will be completed around the same time as the new guestroom flooring.

Thank you again for taking the time to review the BEST WESTERN PLUS Savannah Historic District! We appreciate your kind words and appreciate your business! Have a wonderful day!

Best Western was located in the perfect location to get to all the important sites. The cocierge in the lobby (Mary) was very helpful getting us to the best places to visit before we left. The rooms were very clean & confortable. We will return soon!!

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel in the Historic District. BW was great! Nice room and parking ($15) Of course it was extra for the dog and there were some additional fees that got us up to almost $200 but it was worth it. Location was great, so we got to walk River St. and take the dog to dinner with us at Annie's Pizza in an open air shopping and bar area. Husband fell in love with Wet Willie's and we were able to walk with our slushy cocktails. Very nice. It was hard to get the internet to boot up but we've been finding that's pretty standard. And breakfast was GREAT!!

Room Tip: Dog friendly rooms were only available with two double beds. Can't imagine why.

Perfect trip. Thx to Terrance at the front counter and the maintenance personnel who told us about the best pizza place that delivers before 930pm Vinnie Van GoGo's. Clean, somewhat affordable, safe, beautiful view at night, accomodating, no problems no hassles just easy lodging to see the historic district. Thx

Room Tip: Upstairs facing Bay street is nicest. There will be traffic noise this direction though toward Montg...
