We got to experience Ms Val on her Birthday. She is a firecracker with quick wit and great props as she plays dj and karaoke 🎤 host. Can't wait to come back to Savanah and stay here again. River street is amazing

Savannah is a beautiful city and River Street Inn is a special place to stay. We will recommend to all our friends. We especially enjoyed bartender Val!! She was so friendly; treated us like family. She made recommendations about drinks and what to see around town. Love her ❤️. We would come back just to have her take care of us. She is a hidden gem and River Street Inn is lucky to have her.

The elevator takes you right down to the river and up to the street. The rooms are very well decorated and beds are comfy. Very clean throughout. We had the best reception party from 5:00-6:30 . Plenty of food beer and wine served in a terrific atmosphere. Ms Val the hostess was so inviting and entertaining. Just loved her warmth and smiles. Will definitely be going back. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Maria from St. John, Florida Read less
