Great location, great staff! The room was beautiful! We couldn't have asked for a better stay. No problems at all. Historical elegance! The view from the top of the stairway is beautiful and you have perfect access to river street.

We stayed in a River View Room on level 3. This hotel is confusing since the main floor is room four and the hotel is actually split into two parts. Our room was lovely and very clean. It looked out at the River Boats and all the activity on River Street. If I was to go again I think I...

The River Street Inn is located in the heart of the riverfront tucked back behind the live oaks on Bay Street. We found the staff to be friendly. You can enter Huey's and Tubby's from the hotel which is convenient. Our room was on riverside with a Juliette balcony, and large window seat to view the active river of tug...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay at the River Street Inn. We are certainly proud of the history in the building and the charm that only such a building can offer.

My boyfriend booked this hotel for us for my birthday weekend. He specified a king or queen river view room. Apparently they were sold out so we were degraded to the third floor WITHOUT notice. A lot of noise and two beds was not exactly our idea of a romantic weekend. Best advice: stay else where. The staff was unprofessional....

I am so sorry that we were unable to accommodate the request for a higher floor and one bed. Many reservations book through online travel agencies (Expedia...) are not guaranteed a specific room type even though you may request it at the time of booking. We always encourage guests to call us directly at the Inn so we can make...

River Street Inn is in the heart of River Street. Huge cargo ships pass by often which is exciting. Harbor Cruises depart from the dock in front of the hotel. The hotel was originally built to warehouse cotton in 1817. It is on four floors going from the street down to the riverfront. The room was large and the bathroom...

I thank you for sharing your comments and I want to personally apologize for the issues you had during your stay. We do have a handful of rooms that do have an obstructed view of a historic stone wall. I wish we did not have this issue to contend with but unfortunately when full those rooms do come into play....

River Street Inn in an excellent location of historic Savannah overlooking the river and walking distance to every square and gourmet restaurants. Our room was very comfortable although our view of the main street meant there was traffic noise so would recommend a room overlooking the river.

How many times will you get to stay in a building that was once used as a cotton warehouse? I loved the historic feel. We weren't missing any comforts either.
