One unpleasant employee at check in. Everyone else at the hotel was wonderful. Great location and loved our room. We loved the receptionist who finally checked us in and even bought her pralines when checking out.

Ms Val was so sweet! We missed her reception earlier in the evening and she took time to talk with us about Savannah. Our only disappointment was that we didn’t run into her earlier in our stay! She was by far the most hospitable and we will be back to the River Street Inn because of her.

Ricky Green was one of the most amazing parts of our stay! From the time we pulled up, we were immediately treated like old friends and were welcomed with such wonderful Southern hospitality!

His dinner and shopping recommendations were spot on! Some people show up for work...Ricky pours himself into his job and truly LOVES his beautiful hometown of Savannah! The staff at the hotel were all fantastic, but Ricky truly stands out! The hotel was breathtakingly beautiful and exceptionally done down to the last detail. They were able to modernize the hotel without compromising the history and architectural integrity of the building. Plenty of shopping, dining and fun to be had all within walking distance. We will DEFINITELY stay again! Read less

We had a wonderful stay at the River Street Inn. Great views, great food, fun shopping and wonderful staff. The highlight of our trip though was happy hour with Val. She does it all...hors d'oeuvres, serves drinks, makes sure folks find the best restaurants and shares free ride info so guests have fun but get home safe. She is best at entertaining guests and keeping a lively upbeat atmosphere. Such an amazing warm hearted individual and by far the best asset of River Street Inn. She made our stay worth coming back for in the near future. Read less
