Groveland, Florida
Reviewed 3 April 2015

Very convenient location. Hotel personnel very pleasant and helpful. Large and tasteful room, but the mattress and the pillows reminded me of my days in the army: very uncomfortable and certainly not befitting an hotel that charges $200.00 a night. Never again!

I thank you for your comments. We are in the process of upgrading both of those aspects in the Inn and hope to have that in place very soon.

I stayed here during a conference in August. Once checked in, I had to just stop and let my mind catch up with my eyes. Nothing fancy about the room other than the experience. A great job restoring and maintaining this piece of history. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Very convenient to River Street with restaurants and shops...

Well situated near River and "midtown." Carpet was a bit worn in the room but it was generally well manicured. Free coffee in the lobby and sound tour info imparted from the Front Desk. Parking situated across the street in Public Garage was not an inconvenience at all.

This could be such a great place to stay, but not with a car at the weekend. With no parking of its own they direct you to a place across the road. Unfortunately, on 2 days this was full and we had to use expensive parking further away. Other than that, the hotel itself is not the easiest to navigate...

I thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We do understand that the challenges of utilizing a public parking facility can be an issue and the Inn secures the maximum amount of passes to that garage to be utilized by our guests but those passes often are all signed out on busy weekends. We work with our...

We stayed at the River Street Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect for getting around the city. But the best part of the Inn is the staff. From Steven greeting us and getting our baggage inside to all the helpful people at the front desk. Any question we had they answered with a smile and always...

We stayed for 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. We arrived in Savannah at 2:30, called the hotel to check and see if we could get early parking and they ended up getting us in our room before the 4pm check in and got parking quickly. The bellman was great and quick! Beautiful room! Clean, quiet, and a beautiful view...

Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It can be a bit confusing to arrive on a busy day on a busy street and find a quaint Inn that blends into the surroundings.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.Location, service, nice size room with a river view, historical significance and a fair price. The complimentary wine and cheese cocktail hour was fun. Breakfast is not included. Good places for breakfast are nearby.

Surprisingly,even though we loved so much about this hotel, we had difficult sleeping at night because of the poor quality of pillows. We had a comfortable river view room with a king bed and small balcony but 4 "pillows" that were little more than small cushions! Curious because everything else about this heritage property was top drawer.... tastefully decorated, great...

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We are currently replacing the pillows in the Inn as we had heard some comments on their condition. Please trust that this item will match all of the other fine touches you noted for future stays.

Location is marvelous! We loved being right on the river walk, and able to stroll along the river, watching the container ships slide by. Lots of good places to eat very close by. We could walk all over town, and used the recommended walking tours. The complimentary wine and snacks each evening beat a complimentary breakfast buffet any day,

Thank you for your wonderful comments. I agree that there is no better location to jump out and explore the city from and the wine and appetizers each evening is a fitting way to end a great day and start a great evening. Remember that Savannah is a "portable" city so that to go cup can go with you anywhere...
