My husband and I chose this location to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. Besides being in a great location with a unique historic feel, the outside porch with rocking chairs provided a great and private place to rest while enjoying the hustle of River Street. It also provides a great place to people watch. Also, the customer service provided by the front desk and other staff at the Inn was top notch. However, the best part of our stay was the happy hour with Val! Val is full of great Savannah knowledge and has a recommendation for anything you might be looking to do while visiting Savannah. Her energy, excitement and love for her job radiates as she serves each of the guest. You can tell she takes pride in her work. It was a blessing to share our stay with her. We would/will be visiting again, if not just to spend happy hour with Val! Read less

This was our 2nd stay at the River Street Inn. We love it’s historic charm, great location, and comfortable rooms. But the highlight of our stay was the Manager’s reception hosted by Val Johnson. Val was attentive, informative, and very entertaining!

We visited during the pandemic so we were unable to experience the turndown service. The room was very clean and their cleaning procedures during the pandemic exceeded expectations. Our check in was quick and easy thanks to Wallace. He also texted us several times during our visit to see if we were happy. We were! Read less
