    Ideally situated


    After staying 4.5 miles out of town on our last visit I learnt my lesson and booked here. Easy walking distance to the Bay Street, Riverside area the hotel was basic but also very clean and comfortable. We will be staying here again.

    Unique Quality: Close to downtown

    Directions: Corner of Martin Luther king Blvd & Oglethorpe Ave

    Walking Distance?


    I haven't stayed at this motel, but I thought someone might like to see a picture of it. Econo Lodges are often among the least expensive places to stay. The website says that it is

    ".. within walking distance to attractions like the famous River Street, the Juliette Gordon Lowe Birthplace (a Girl Scout national center), the Savannah Civic Center and the Telfair Museum of Art.

    "Several shops and a variety of eateries are within walking distance. Local restaurants and cocktail lounges include Belford's, Cafe at City Market, Casbah, Chao Chinese, Adagio Jazz Club, Apre's Night Club, Frozen Paradise and Savannah Smiles Bar."

    Note: Self parking is $8.00 per night
    No Pets Allowed

    Unique Quality: In addition to standard amenities like Cable/Satellite TV, guest rooms feature coffee makers, irons and ironing boards. There is a newsstand and on site convenience store. Guests get a free weekday newspaper (Mon-Fri). Business travelers will appreciate access to a copy machine and the competitive corporate rates.Handicap accessible and non-smoking rooms are also available.

    Directions: From I-95 take I-16 East to exit Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Turn left at traffic light and follow Oglethorpe Ave.

    We stayed here while moving our daughter in to Drayton House, Savannah College of Art & Design. If all you're looking for is a cheap place to sleep, this will do. Great location for move-in week, walking distance to all events.

    Cheapest Hotel in Historic District


    This Econo Lodge is about the cheapest place you can stay in the historic district. It is very basic, not luxurious in the least, but its in a good location, only about 3 blocks from the city market and 4 blocks from River Street. They have a very small continental breakfast, consisting of coffee, milk, orange juice, 2 types of cereal, and fruit danishes. The only thing that was unsatisfactory about my room was that the shower head only sprayed out a single large stream of water and could not be adjusted like a normal one. Other than that everything here was satisfactory. The hotel also seems to be situated on the edge of the historic district near industrial sites and perhaps a bad part of town, although it did not seem dangerous here even at night. A room with two double beds was $99 on friday and saturday nights and $80 during the week. All the other chain hotels like the best western and hilton in the historic district were at least $120 at night, and their location wasn't that much better than the econo lodge. There is plenty to see and do, including shopping and restaurants, within a 5-10 minute walk from here. I would stay here again if I didn't find somewhere else cheaper in the historic district.

    Directions: Corner of MLK Jr. Blvd. and West Oglethorpe Ave., easy to find from I-16.
