Dirt in the bathroom. Light fixture hanging off ceiling. Lights not working. Huge scrapes of paint missing on the wall. Bad paint job. Huge bed in small room. Bathroom last done how many years ago? This hotel is relying on its great location overlooking the river and whilst others have moved on this one hasn't bothered. It shows no love...

There were so many problems with this stay (or 6 hour disaster) I am not sure where to start. When I booked the reservation over the phone An hour outside of Savannah I was told they would give me the reduced AAA rate but when I checked in I was informed they could not honor it. I should have known...

My Wife and I stayed here for the week of 12-17 April 2015. River Street Inn was recommended to us by AAA Travel. The Mattress was flat and hard and Pillows were Flat. Every Morning are Bodies hurting and our Good Night's Sleep was Joke. The Price we paid for Room did not match Recommendation and Comfort we expected. We...

Endoman, I don't intend to defend the product as I agree that we do need to update some areas of the Inn and want you to know that we are working with ownership to improve all of the areas of the hotel. We have ordered all new matresses and bedding for the Inn and it should arrive in the next...

We booked this property based on its location in the same building as one of our favorite restaurants in Savannah, Huey's on the River. I booked a river view room with balcony for $288.00 for one night. We were in route from our winter home in Florida to the summer cabin in Tennessee. I called the property when we were...

First time visiting Savannah. Went to meet up with friends and tour the city. We were only there for 3 days, which did NOT cover everything, you really need a full week to enjoy all. River Street Inn was exactly as I expected. It's an "old" building with wooden floors, banisters and tall ceilings. Our room was on the 5th...

The hotel was perfect, the room was fabulous and the staff were great. The location was perfect and we had a room overlooking the river, what a view. The room overlooked River Street and was a bit noisy but we did not mind. KB

This was a huge disappointment. The rooms smelled musty and the bath was moldy. The beds and pillows were a joke. The service was nonexistent. I wouldn't let my dog stay here. The help has a bad attitude. This wasn't inexpensive so as I said a huge disappointment.

I am so sorry that your room was not what you had hoped for and wish we could have done more to make your stay a great one. We work hard to make sure all rooms meet our guests expectations and it appears that we missed the mark and I am once again sorry.

In Savannah it's all about location. The River Street Inn is the best. The front opens to Bay Street and the rear opens to River Street. Excellent restaurants, bars and Jazz lounges on River Street and everything else on Bay Street. All you need is a bike and you're good to go. The inside has that old south flavor and...

We stayed here last year on our drive north from, and it was great. The one downside was that the elevator in our section was not working, but they had someone help us with our bags, and took them up the freight elevator. We could walk to the other section or take the stairs, and neither option was really bad,...

This hotel is well situated in the Historic District of Savannah along the River front. It is in an old building with a lot of character. We were lucky to get a river view. If there are late night partiers along the river front then it can be noisy. The big freight boats come along the river as early as...
