This motel is off of the main street but within easy walking distance to downtown.I liked this because it was quiet. The beds are very comfy and clean. We had the 2nd floor and were outside sitting on our cooler having a cigarette when an employee came by and brought us chairs so we could be comfortable. The front desk...

The motel is located directly across from the Greyhound bus depot. It's also a major highway exit and lots of trucks pass by day and night. The air conditioner was very noisy. That accepted, the motel was a regular 50's vintage design with excellent staff all around. The price was fair and lots of fun shopping and dining within 6-8...

Highly recommend the Thunderbird, we spotted an advert in a brochure from the local tourist office. We were on our Honeymoon and Stephen was able to offer us an upgraded room which included a Magic Finger Mattress !! Just what we needed for our Honeymoon stay. Stephen behind the desk was a wealth of knowledge, he gave us a run...

I would highly recommend this hotel. It is right on the edge of the historic district - great location. The staff was very helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions, everything! The room was clean and well maintained. Loved it! I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I are not picky travelers and we are good with staying in 3 star hotels. But keeping that in mind, it is hard to accept paying more than $100 a night for a hotel that will not give you enough towels. 2 towels and one washcloth for two people. No hand towels. We had to ask for...

You are so right. If we don't have a clean room, what else is there? I hate this was your experience. As you can see from the reviews, it is not the norm. I hope you will come give us another opportunity to let us wow you. Mark@thethunderbirdinn.com is my direct email.

The hotel was very comfy, rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful providing tips in what places to eat and do stuff around downtown. I give the hotel a 10. Excellent location and service. Easy checkin and check out process with no delays

Our room was small but sufficient for dropping our daughter off at SCAD and spending a couple nights. Looks like they put in a new AC unit recently which worked well. Bathroom is tiny but sink is outside the bathroom which works well for us. Beds were comfy and room nicely decorated and clean. They were fully booked, and we...

Traveled to Savannah with friends, don't remember who suggested we stay at The Thunderbird Inn, two rooms produced two different experiences! One room had the RC and Moonpie (crunch) and the other only the Moonpie. One room had a working TV, ironing board, telephone, and coffee maker and the other did not. Location is convenient to much of what's happening...

Location is great- easy walk into the historic district even though the road itself is unattractive and opposite the bus station. Staff were pleasant and a wide range if doughnuts, coffee/tea/juice available in the mornings. Room was spacious and clean with nice style features. And the outdoor music does eventually stop at 11! Not great if you want an early...
