I'm looking for a hotel in Savannah and I found this Homewood Suites 4 miles from the city center.

5820 White Bluff Road

Is that a good neighborhood?

Re: Hotels

by lillypalmer

NO - that neighborhood is a mess and in suburban sprawl. You could be in Toledo for how it looks. Stay downtown where you can walk. My boyfriend and I stayed at Julia's Hideaway on Whitaker street. Great place and great value. check out craigslist to get details on the hideaway.

It is alot safer than downtown, alot. I live here I know. City bus goes straight downtown for $1.50 or 1.75. 20 minutes. Leave downtown by dark if possible or 9:00 at the latest.

Absolutely a good neighborhood in what's refered to as "Mid-Town" or "Southside" Savannah. Hotel/Motels in this area are priced far, far lower than those in the downtown historic district, with the same amenities and ambiance. Whenever I have friends or family come visit from up north, I tell them to search for "midtown" hotels. The LaQuinta on Abercorn near Eisenhower is my first choice. You are about a 15-minute drive from the downtown historic area if you want to take in the tourist trade. Unless you have a lot of money to spend or want a particularly romantic or upscale atmosphere, avoid the downtown hotels. And if you do stay downtown, be careful and be aware that crime is higher there.

Travel Tips for Savannah

Something for everyone.

by madbyron

Living on Jones Street! Locals have long referred to it as "the one with all the trees." But its more than that. Side by side 1850's rowhouses spotted by the occasional mansion with brick streets and hidden gardens, nooks and niches. It represents all that Savannah is in one single mile street. Neighborly, communal and wonderfully shadowy at night. Its also standing as a divider between the traffic of the riverfront and the suburban southside so it acts as a noise barrier well enough.'ll have to wait for the book but in the meantime I love walking and walking and walking Savannah's lanes and streets. Its dreamlike and a fantasy for the wanderer in us all. Every square offers its own adventure and encounter and you're guaranteed to have them if you open yourself to the possibility. Stay on a trolley or a tourbus or don't leave River Street then you can forget it and keep moving onto Disney World. If you want real life, then dare it here!

Stop in 2 yrs. from now... and it'll be different

by Pawtuxet

There are loads of restoration projects going on all over the place in Savannah. We had the feeling it had fallen into a decline and was coming back up again. One street was going to become a string of condos behind the facade of several old business buildings including the old newspaper building. It's great to see such imaginative things happening in the reuse of old structures.

fort pulaski

by doug48

fort pulaski is located on cockspur island at the mouth of the savannah river. it was named after the polish count, casimir pulaski who fought with general george washington during the revolunary war. construction on fort pulaski began in 1833 and was finished in 1847. in 1860 the fort was taken over by the governor of georgia and was later turned over to the confederacy. in 1862 union general david hunter was ordered by general w.t. sherman to retake the fort. on april 10th 1862 fort pulaski fell to northern forces after a 30 hour seige. a very interesting place to visit in the savannah area. to get to fort pulaski take hwy 80 east about 10 miles from downtown savannah.

Drinking in the Square

by marciaca about Pinkie Masters

Pinkie Master's is a ***hole of a bar that has a lot of history and is damn fun to get drunk at. Pinkie's is a blue collar bar filled with regular joes and starving artists.

Pabst Blue Ribbon or PBR is the beer of choice at Pinkie's. Pinkie Master, who died in 1978, was a life-long local politician who knew everyone in town. The numerous autographed pictures on the wall prove it. There's even George Wallace way back in his boxing days.
Jimmy Carter announced he was running for President after climbing on top of the bar. Al Goire even tried to do the same thing a couple of years, but he scored no points for originality. Whatever you want to wear. Bars close at 3am.

Great Moroccan Food in Savannah

by nc_rebel about Casbah Moroccan

This was my first Moroccan experience and was a nice change of pace from all of the seafood and country cooking that we ate all week in Savannah. The food was excellent. My daughter really liked the belly dancing entertainment. Before anyone freaks, it was done very tastefully. They really want you to have the full Moroccan experience which means you sit low to the ground on very fluffy cushions and you eat with your hands. You can ask for silverware if you don't feel comfortable eating with your hands. There is no kids menu so if you have little ones then you may just share with them. For a family of four it cost us a little over $100 including drinks, appetizer, and tip. Believe it or not, this is average price for the area. Nice experience and would recommend. Service was also great. Make sure you call ahead to make reservations, especially if going on the weekend. For an appetizer we got the apricot shrimp. EXCELLENT!! I got the chicken breast with sweet onions. Again, excellent! My daughter got the chicken breast with apricots. I made sure to sample it and it was great too. Basically most of the dishes were either chicken, lamb, or beef done as either kabobs, sweet onion, or apricot. Can't go wrong.
