    Wonderful place to stay!

    We enjoyed our stay, the nostalgia was perfect! Our pups also were happy there. Thanks for the popcorn, coffee, donuts, as well as the dog treats!

    Art Deco Treasure in Savannah

    Just overnight but a wonderful place to stay, Check-in was prompt and personable, very informative gentleman at the desk. Room was immaculate clean and bright. Loved the Art Deco styling of furnishings. Moonpie’s and RC Cola’s in room were nice touch. We are seniors and walk to waterfront was as stated very easy. Slept well bed was very comfortable and area seemed very safe. Next morning coffee and donuts were fantastic, left with a sugar high,lol. Only think I’d mention was extremely low water pressure at bathroom sink, made shaving and tooth brushing difficult. Still would give a strong 10 out of 10 rating and look forward to returning.

    Quick trip anniversary celebration

    Clean accessible location to river front attractions. We drove paid for overnight parking, however opted to Uber for the alcohol consumption option. Although walking was close enough as well. Excellent price considering the tourist area. No oders of pets nor smoking. Popcorn and lemonade was on hand as stated.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    My only minor disappointment was that we did not get daily room cleaning; if I had known, I may have been willing to pay extra for the service. I do, however, appreciate the enthusiastic service from the front desk staff who helped us to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The doughnuts were absolutely sumptuous.

    Good times

    The hotel was nice and not a bad walk to all of the fun. They were very accommodating towards our dogs. It was a little noisy from all of the traffic though

    Great spot

    My stay was absolutely amazing. The staff was great. Perfect walking distance from trolley tours and River Street. I literally parked my car when I arrived and didn't drive again til it was time to leave. This was my 2nd stay at the Thunderbird Inn but my 1st time back since they remodeled and will definitely be going back.

    Good Value

    It was a good stay and a good value considering the hotels around Savannah. Across from city transit center. The laminate floor was very dirty. While walking to put on shoes after showering my wife and I had to wipe feet with wet wash cloth. The cloth was filthy afterwards. Doughnuts and coffee were great in the morning.

    Not really free parking

    I searched for hotel on with free parking and thunderbird came up. But they charged 15 dollars per day and said it’s my own fault for not reading the fine print. True but I feel like they are abusing the system by tagging it as free parking and then actually charging. Hotels should update the app to hide hotels that actually charge for parking from showing up in the free parking search. Or delist them if they are abusing the system.

    Being Retro is Not Enough

    The Thunderbird Inn is fun and retro, but that doesn't make up for its other problems. The Inn is far too loud - we could hear our neighbor's entire conversation and knew what they were watching on TV through the walls. Our entry door didn't seal properly to the outside, and while you can't smoke inside, plenty of people stood outside our door and smoked all night. And oh yeah, if you don't ask, they will leave their throwback hits music playing all night long.
