More about Oglethorpe Inn & Suites Savannah
The hotel room was great. We stayed from the 10 of Feb to the 12 and loved the room. The night desk people were awful. We saw a couple banging on the desk for over 10 minutes trying to get assistance, and we actually had to find the desk people (who were obviously ignoring the couple) and tell them somebody was trying to get their attention. We left the do not disturb sign on the door to keep out room service the whole time we were there (probably the best idea ever). So we checked out (day shift is great, no complaints there) and got home and realized on of our bags had been left behind. We called the hotel and they shipped it straight over, no problem. Except when we got the bag anyway. Looked in the bag (that was in a nice sturdy box, thanks UPS) and saw a couple of things were broken and the most expensive thing in the bag (a pair of duel diamond earings) were missing. Big supprise. So long story short, keep your valuables locked up and don't let staff in the room while your not there, and maybe if you see one of the staff wearing duel diamond earings you might just know where they came from...
Very quiet and peaceful
This has to be the quietest hotel we have ever stayed in...we booked a two room suite which was quite clean and comfortable...continental breakfast was more than adequate...only problem we saw was a non-operating remote on one of the TVs (no big deal) ...no slamming doors, no flushing toilets, no yelling outside (or inside) at all hours and most rooms were full. Restaurants closeby, major mall just up the street. Desk and service staff very polite and accomodating.We were here for a business meeting that we could walk to.
We would recommend this hotel to most anyone.
Very Nice Hotel, Would stay again!
We were coming to Savannah for the first time, and seen the website of Oglethorpe Inn & Suites, and liked the look of the hotel. We decided that we would stay three nights. Even though it was not in the historic district it was still easy to get to, and it was in a good neighborhood. The Oglethorpe Mall is just on down the street, which was nice. The rooms was very clean, and large. The wireless internet was great. We liked the look of the hotel, it has a Ole' England charm. We were on the third floor, and the railing on the balcony was gorgeous. We really liked our stay and would go back again, if we were ever in Savannah.
Great value, wonderful customer service!
From the moment we parked and walked in, we were wowed. It is an incredibly lovely property and there is a gorgeous atrium just past the desk, where people eat the free continental breakfast. The desk staff were very gracious with big smiles. Everyone was just so pleasant, our room was really nice and spacious, and the breakfast was fresh and good. We will be back!
Absolutely Loved It!!!!
This was the first time that we had been to Savannah and we were so happy with our experience. We really wanted a hotel in the historic area, but settle on the Oglethorpe and we are so glad that we did. From the moment that we checked in till the time that we checked out everyone was so helpful and curteous. The atrium was sparkling clean the whole weekend, even when the FREE continental breakfast was going on. The suites were fabulous and extremely quite. We did not hear any sounds in the middle of the night such as slamming doors or even our neighbors walking by. It took less than 10 minutes to get to the historic area and that was great. I will definetly stay at this hotel again on my next trip to Savannah. For the price and location it is wonderful!!!
This hotel was beautiful, both inside and out. There was plenty of complimentary parking, and the lobby was great. There are couches and quaint little areas to spend time socializing. The pool was quite small, and there was no jacuzzi, but this wasn't a big deal for me. Also, note that it can be a little loud outside, as it looked like military planes were flying right over the hotel frequently (again, this wasn't a big deal, but can be a little annoying if you are sensitive to loud noises). The place was very quiet at night, and it felt very safe and clean. The rooms were spacious and definitely worth the price. We even had a microwave and mini-refrigerator in our room. There is a separate bedroom and living room area, and the TV swivels so you can watch it from either room. The location was pretty convenient, a short drive to the historic district of Savannah and near plenty of stores and restaurants. The breakfast in the morning was pretty bad - the selection was very small; but, it was free, so I can't complain. You can always go downtown or to one of the nearby restaurants for breakfast if it doesn't satisfy you. I'd definitely stay here again.
We had a great time in this inn!!!!!
This is the best inn that my wife and I have stayed at in the Savannah area. The price is great the staff is great and talk about a good deal .Book your stay you will not be sad you did. The Historic district is only 5 min’s drive on Abercorn.
Oglethorpe Inn was ok...
The suites were very nice and spacious. It was great having a min fridge and microwave. There were also a lot of hangers which is abnormal, but great! The pool was nice and warm and larger than some of the newer hotel pools these days.
There were a few things I didn't like. The breakfast was not very exciting. It was the bare necessities and they ran out of a lot of things like juice and pastries. Also, the milk and yogurt were warm. As far as cleanliness of the room- It was clean upon arrival and the supplies and bed were kept up nicely. However, we had made a small mess of the breakfast muffins and it was never vacuumed.
Overall, the hotel was good for the amount we paid. I would stay there again, but not count on the breakfast filling me up.
When you pull up to this Inn you can tell everything is going to be great. The staff was great, and housekeeping. The room was perfect. I rate this a 10+
great place to stay
It was very nice. Everyone was friendly and it wasn't far from historical part. I would stay there again. There was a great mall almost next door which was great for a rainy day.

Me and my fiance are thinking of relocating to Savannah. We love older, historic homes, what areas would your recommend that are fun and safe?
RE: possibly relocating
my uncle lives in Tybee Island, pretty close to savannah, i love that place
RE: RE: possibly relocating
Tybee is a nice place to be. My friend just moved from Savannah - she lived near the art school there. I love Savannah, personally, and would move there in a heartbeat.
RE: possibly relocating
i used to go to scad so i have some first hand knowlegde of what it is like to live in savannah. There are a lot of options for older homes in fun and safe areas. Cost is going to most likely your main determinant. I am not sure how familiar you are with savannah but it is a city that is being 'reinvented' and renovated all the time. There are many area that used to be 'trouble' areas that are now filling up with familes and young professionals. The only problem with that is that you could have a beautiful house with perfect neighbours but in your back yard you could have a crack dealer. The historic district of savannah (think 37st to bay st.) is probably your best bet. You will never be able to totally escape the 'ghetto' because it surrounds you in savannah. I would look for a house in the area of taylor st. Some where around the squares and close to the very CENTER of the historic district (ie. not bordering mlk blvd.).
Good luck and let me know if you want any more information!
ps- if you live on tybee island you DO NOT live in savannah. There is a big difference!
RE: RE: possibly relocating
yeah, but it's close to savannah, so you could visit.
