Book online for a lower rate and make sure you receive an email confirmation for your reservation.

I was torn as to whether or not to give this 2 or 3 stars. We recently stayed here during our Savannah vacation. I picked it because it was significantly cheaper than staying in the historic district, and it didn't look scary. Plus, the room rate came with breakfast.

We checked in and found out that what I had been quoted over the phone when I booked the reservation ($89/night, not including my AAA discount), was incorrect. I was charged $90+ a night with my discount. The rate was actually $109. The clerk asked me if I had received an email confirming the rate I was told over the phone, and since I never received anything of the kind, I was pretty much screwed. The room was very spacious. It's run down, but it's fairly clean and decent (although when I stepped into the shower for the first time, I found several hairs). The room comes with a mini-fridge, microwave, couch, etc. They also include high-speed internet, which in our experience barely worked. The breakfast wasn't anything to write home about. They have bagels, waffles, toast, yogurt, etc, which is pretty much all previously frozen. There's also cereal, a juice machine, coffee, and water. It's free, though.

The rooms are all accessed from the inside, which is great for safety. However, this means that you will hear every single person in the lobby while you're sitting in your room. Screaming kids, etc.

Overall, it wasn't worth the money. At $60 or maybe even $70 a night, I may have considered it. Next time I'm staying somewhere different.

Here is where we stayed during move out! This hotel is not located in the immediate downtown area, it's down one of the main streets (Abercorn) and is about 10-15 minutes away from Downtown. So the con is that it is far away, but the pro is that since it isn't downtown it is way cheaper! It worked out really well for my mom and I, we had a rental car and didn't mind driving down there when we were done with the moving.

The room was really big! There was a couch and a bog chair as well as a mini fridge, perfect for keeping water cold in the summer heat! We had a king size bed and a huge bathroom. Everything was nice and clean, the only bad thing was that the ac broke in the middle of the night and was putting out heat! But they fixed it the next morning with no problem! They offer breakfast in the morning and they have 2 computers and a printer available in the lobby for guests to use.

Would stay there again!

A nice place to stay, but not downtown.  It is conveniently located to the downtown area if you have a car-- about a 10 minute drive.  The place is very clean and the staff is nice.  Our room was spacious and quiet and the bed was comfortable.  The bathroom was clean and the vanity is separate from the shower area, so two people can get ready at the same time.  

The continental breakfast has rolls, yogurt, fruit, coffee, cereal, etc.  Definitely will stay here again next time we're in town.

I was thoroughly impressed w/Ogelthorpe Inn. The staff is pleasant and helpful and the rooms are spacious and well-equipped. While the hotel is not located in the gorgeous downtown area, it is only a short drive away. For budget conscious travelers, the cost wins!

This hotel is ok, if you have never stayed in a nice hotel and have nothing to compare it to.  Oglethorpe Inn & Suites is more of what you may expect from the "motel" category than hotel.

Room- Our room was pretty spacious with 2 double beds, a sitting area (couch & armchair), though the bathroom is very small and does not have venting (mildew & mold on ceiling & walls, ick).  I am very picky when it comes of hotels...this place does not appear very clean and gives me a general sense of ickiness.  However, all sheets & towels were clean and I had no issues while I was here.

Amenities- Free breakfast in the morning in the central courtyard area of the hotel means you will be woken up by screaming children and yelling adults getting breakfast.  There's free wifi, and 2 community computers in the lobby.  The pool in the back of the hotel- small pool and surrounded by plastic deck chairs and umbrella-ed tables...the towels are tiny (I needed three to cover the chair).  In the room, there's a mini fridge so you can keep your beverages cold.

Location- it's located about 15 minutes drive from downtown...it's an easy drive and there are lots of stores and restaurants in the immediate vicinity if you do to want to venture far.  The area is mixed- there's a fair amount of pawn shops, check cashing places, and places that offer you cash for your car title, but not right next to the hotel- I felt pretty safe, especially since all the rooms were accessed from the inside.

Rate- Definitely a value choice if you are visiting Savannah and are just looking for a place to crash and not spend alot of time in- we paid just over $60/night booked through Expedia, but if it were my decision, I probably would have bumped up my spending limit for something a little closer to downtown, and up a couple stars.

Maybe I expect too much, but getting here and having the Front Desk Clerk change our room number JUST after we got it (But before we went to the actual room) made me feel ill at ease.

The rooms themselves are a good size with a parlor and a sleeping area, which I had no complaints about.

They could do themselves a favor and have a few more customer accessible electrical outlets in both the parlor and the bedroom.  I had to plug my laptop into a plug near the coffee machine so the farthest I could make it was a chair next to the couch unless I moved the couch out and unplugged one of the lamps.  For my CPAP machine we had to buy an extension cord to plug into the outlet inconveniently located behind the bed.

The Free Internet was pretty poor, at least in our room, providing us with many minutes of "waity" bars and spinners.

The final two disappointing points are the almost overpowering FRESH smell.  As thought they are trying to shove a smell into your nose to convince you of the overwhelming freshness they provide, as if to counter this though, the housekeeping service never attempted to clean our room.  I'm not sure if it was because they were hard at work trying to clean our original room, or if they just didn't give a crap.

I won't be giving a crap about staying here if I ever return to Savannah and I suggest you don't either.

We were very comfortable, being a family of five in one suite. The inn was clean and had everything we needed: 2 TVs, sink separated from bathroom, laundry machines for our use, parking just a few yards from our room, WiFi, plenty variety at breakfast, etc. nobody seemed to mind that our kids were noisy, but there also weren't many kids there at all.
The only downside was that you can't walk out of the inn right to the sights, although everything was less than 10 minutes away.

Stayed here for  five nights while attending a program. Definitely dated. Beds need to be replaced - actually had indentations in them! Windows didn't open and air conditioner blew right on the bed.

Breakfast was minimal - sub-par to the ordinary. The toaster only toasted on one side. Only one waffle maker. Luckily there were breakfast places close by.

Stayed here with my roller derby league.  
Beautiful 40s/50s style Inn with a gorgeous lobby with a fountain & skylights.
Wonderful & friendly staff.  Clean & quaint rooms.  Breakfast was adequate.  A bit of a drive from downtown, but lots of convenient restaurants & shops nearby.  I'd definitely stay here again & recommend this hotel to friends.

Overall a good stay. The room was clean and nice but not worth the price and not exactly what I was expecting. Wasn't that much better than a holiday inn or the like and it wasn't right in the heart of downtown or anything so I was a little disappointed about the cost. Maybe savannah is just expensive everywhere though. The concierge was very friendly and helpful. About a 15 minute drive from the historic district...might be worth staying right there for close to the same price or a little more.

As far as a last minute booking for a one night stay in Savannah, GA, Oglethorpe Inn & Suites provided a good experience to fit our needs. The inside is very 1970's in shape, decor and design. Aqua blue is the main color palate, with some comfortable seating in the lobby.
Front desk operatives were friendly, but not overly engaging nor friendly leaving me with the feeling I may have been more accepted elsewhere.

Breakfast buffet's in these Inn's are what they are. A few boiled eggs which look like some marvel of modern science, cereal and some English muffins. The Jimmy Deans microwavable breakfast biscuits were not something I would consume, but other residents were really attacking them as fast and processed food apparently brings out  that need for immediacy mentality.

The room was larger in size than I expected, bed was quite comfortable, so nothing to state in a negative mannerism there, Outside parking was not very close to the building, but did not lack for space.

A fifteen minute drive to downtown Savannah.

Friendly staff. Very old and worn furnishings in the rooms. Stained carpets, dirty windows.
