We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the Inn, especially the morning breakfasts, Honor Bar, garden area, and front porch! While the Inn is very nice and breakfasts are wonderful there are some things we noticed that revealed that the Inn is not managed with a firm hand. Food stored in the refrigerator was not properly covered or contained, walls in...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 October 2016

We had never stayed at a B&B before, so were apprehensive. The staff and the house made us feel right at home. Breakfast was top notch . Loved to sit on the spacious front porch, especially the morning it was Raining. Nice happy hour that we got to know some of the other folks from around the country.

Wonderful location but overall disappointing, particularly given the price. Our rooms (expensive and said to be the least) were dark, shabby and the several seriously dead flies on the bathroom windowsill did not inspire confidence. A pleasant enough welcome. This was in the slow season and we sensed that staff were not up to their best. Sugar spilt in the...

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We stayed for the Rock and Roll Savannah Half Marathon in the James Oglethorpe room. The room was a good size and the bathroom was great. They did a good job adding the bathrooms, they are updated and roomy....

Hello Roberta G, Thank you for your time in writing this review.
