Since the hotel (not really an inn) is situated next to the river the price is high. For the price we were not impressed. Views were amazing but Be expected to hear street noise, singers, musicians, street performers outside. Also the boats that come down the river are super cool but loud. I'm only mentioning this since I had no... More

Thank you for your kind review. Our 200 year old building sitting alongside the Savannah River and the most happening location on River Street is unique. We're fortunate to be where we are and most of our guests love our location and the merriment and activities that go along with being where we are. Street Festivals, Christmas Boat Parades, etc....

Beautiful hotel renovated in an old style. Floors have that haunted "creaky" sound to them which is cool. Guests are treated fantastic by the staff! Best we have experienced. It does get loud on River Street but not a loud you can't deal with. Close to everything to include a giant freighter floating by in the morning. :) Can't go... More

My wife and I visit Savannah regularly but this was the first time we stayed at a hotel on River Street. My wife booked River Street Inn at a good discount price because of the off-season (after Thanksgiving) I must say this place exudes Southern Class. Yes, this place is old but it is well kept and very beautiful. Our... More

Nice hotel right on the river with lots of action. Easy walk to everything in the area. Staff friendly and helpful. Car park was very handy just across the street. Appears that rooms either have a city view or river view...both nice.

I stayed there on my way back from Miami to NYC. The room was nice, clean and well prepared. The location is good for exploring this great place. This hotel is close to town and has a 1 min walk to the river.

We drove in from Charleston, and the bell boy was there as soon as we had parked in the temporary loading area. We were checked in, and taken to our rooms where we had the basics explained – including the heating / air conditioning. The hotel covers three converted warehouses, and there were little bends to get from one to... More

We checked into room 335 and were less than impressed at the size and upkeep of the room for the $650 we paid for 3 nights. Felt like a closet and seriously lacking in maintenance. Beware the rooms 35

Thank you for your review. Our hotel was created within a two hundred year old former cotton warehouse. We adapted to its construction constraints since its on the National Historic Register & many things can't be changed. This means no two rooms are alike, making for a special & unique experience.

This hotel was recommended to us by friends who stayed in the spring this year. Booked it through an on-line agency, and feel we paid a lot for what we got.
