The East Bay emulates the charm of Savannah. From the building’s history, the period quarters (with upgraded amenities like walk in showers) to the incredibly accommodating staff, (Jennifer is the Queen of accommodation). The location is perfect. There is a bar, Tandem well stocked with fine whiskeys and other libations plus Debi’s restaurant serving breakfast & lunch. Clean, accommodating and location = great stay!

Hotel's Favourite
My wife and I stayed at East Bay Inn for our Valentine’s Day and we had the best memorable experience. The hotel itself is amazing and the architecture is stunning. The furnishings and layout are beautiful. The staff were excellent, Lauri Elder was very attentive to all of the guests needs, and the innkeeper Susan Powers left us a hand written note and a bottle of champagne on ice and chocolates for when we arrived. We have never felt so pampered in our life, the staff went above and beyond to make our experience great. I would give this inn and their employees 100 stars if I could. In addition to our great experience, the location of the inn is perfect for enjoying Savannah’s historic district. We were able to walk from our hotel to all of the city’s attractions and our time could not have been better spent. Thank you East Bay Inn and staff for making our romantic getaway a night we will never forget.

Savannah is a truly wonderful city and the East Bay Inn is a charming complement to the finest things it represents. From the staff and the accommodations to the perfect location to all that Savannah has to offer, we couldn’t have made a better choice.

I stayed at East Bay Inn for a long weekend with a group of girlfriends. Our overall experience was absolutely amazing. Did we hear from Charlie? Yes. Was it part of the charm? Yes. The location was perfect for exploring the historic district, city market, and the riverside district. And there are some fantastic restaurants just a few minutes away. The staff was AMAZING.

All the staff were super friendly. Great location. Charming room. Loved having a Keurig in the room so I didn’t have to bring mine in. The shower was accessible (no tub). Also enjoyed the bottled water and popcorn. Would stay here again!

Loved the history of the building and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our only concern was the lack of cleaning detail. When you walked into the hotel an "old" smell was very noticeable. It is our belief that this was contributed to because of dust and dirt. More effort needed to be made on detail cleaning to keep things fresh and smelling pleasant.

From check-in to check-out we could not have asked for a better experience than at the East Bay Inn. The staff was so friendly and helpful and they made you feel at home. The room we stayed in was facing the front of the building and was very spacious with a sitting area and had a very comfortable bed. The location was perfect as it was across the street from the River Walk and close to all the great restaurants and squares. The amenenities were great and they offered complimentary beverages in the lobby all day. We even received a free glass of wine or beer in the hotel bar each day. Just one thing to mention is that the building dates to 1852 so the floors creak at night but it wasn't to much of a bother. We will definitely be back to Savannah and The East Bay Inn is where we will stay.

The inn was charming, centrally located and furnished nicely. The hotel provided popcorn and waters daily. I loved the corner suite we had and the open faced brick walls. Debs restaurant on the lower level was great and the bar connected to the hotel was nice. The hotel gave us drink coupons for each day of our stay. They were good for wine or beer. I recommend the East Bay Inn.

Lovely spacious room with a large comfortable bed. I was a bit worried about the traffic noise from East Bay Street as I'm a very light sleeper but it was no problem. Lots of free stuff - coffee, water, drinks in the bar and popcorn. Walkable to everywhere and we had a great time.
