This hotel is great. A burst of fresh air. It's good to find a one off hotel rather than constant chains as like the rest of America. We arrived early and our room wasn't available but the staff were friendly and helpful to show us the areas to go to in savannah and we could get our room later that...

The Thunderbird bills itself as the "hippest hotel in Savannah", alluding to its look and feel like a classic "motor hotel" of the "hip" 60s. There are some cute touches along those lines -- the throw-back pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and lotion in the bathroom, the two moon pies and RC colas in the room, free popcorn and lemonade...

My boyfriend and I stayed for a couple days a few months ago. Great hotel. I love ones that aren't the standard. This one had the most comfortable bed and pillows ever. Only problem was the door to the room next door wasn't locking correctly. Might need to look into that (Over by the ice machine under the stairs.) Highly...

We are Baby Boomers, and the 60's were a great time in our lives. Overnighting it at the Thunderbird Inn took us right back in time. When we first pulled into the lot with multi-colored doors, it was, OMG!!! But it all makes sense once you enter the office to check-in. You are surrounded by vintage 60's memorabilia right down...

My first impression was not a good one...there was an odor in our room (RM212) that was noticeable upon opening the door. We came in on a motorcycle and we were very tired so I just let the odor go. I should have requested another room, but as they had let us check in early (by an hour + 1/2)...

I really hate that you were not happy from the time you checked in and didn't let us know. We never want an unhappy guest, but when it happens we welcome the opportunity to turn around the situation to make you happy. My other question is about the rate. We automatically send out confirmation letters that detail the rate on...

When I first drove in front of the hotel I almost called the site I book from to cancel, this is a tiny old motel painted in flashy colors, anyway it was kind of late and I was staying just for one night, as soon I left my car and hear the retro music and smell the bobble gum in...

I really wanted to like this hotel but I didn't have a good experience. The location and price were great so that made it ok, but that was it. My non-smoking room smelled like smoke; not sure if this was from the very old carpets or the ashtray attached to my wall outside, but they need designated non-smoking areas, not...

The Thunderbird was just what we were looking for the in beautiful Savannah. Close to the exquisite historical downtown it was an easy walk to the numerous oak filled squares, ghost tours, the scenic river walks and great food (there's an AMAZING distillery around the corner). The rates were more than reasonable considering how central it's location and the rooms...
