Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kim2900 Good hotel and location - renovations over soon!
I have stayed here many times and you can't beat the price and location. I have always found the staff to be very nice and helpful. They are going through renovations but all hotels must do this at some time and it didn't cause much discomfort at all. Great location for food and shopping and general visits to Savannah. The breakfast rating was not that great but I am not into that type of breakfast. Good coffee and that is the most important thing. I will continue to stay here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tredgh3654 Would stay downtown next time.
Beds comfortable. Room adjacent to elevator is always a little noisy. WIFI in room had very weak signal. Chairs in room were not comfortable. Would stay downtown next time. Worth the few bucks more.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FranktheD Worst Holiday Inn Experience Ever!!!
I am a regular traveler and regular holiday inn express patron. Savannah was terrible. No toaster and no cinnamon rolls. The staff did not seem to care. Half the TV channels did not work. I asked why two days in a row. "Oh, I guess I better call Direct TV" Are you trying to tell me that with an account as large as Holiday Inn , you cant get the TV fixed. BTW, I was unable to see the NCAA National Championship game. Terrible.
I want Holiday Inn to contact me and refund half my cost.

My wife and I have stayed at your Holiday Inn located on Abercon St. in Savannah, Ga. on three occasions since Feb. of 2010.
My wife and I booked a two night stay there for the 1st and 2nd of April of this year. We convinced our Son and his wife to cancel their reservations at another hotel in Savannah and to book a room at the same Holiday Inn on Abercorn which we were staying so we could be together. I told them that our past experience has been that the hotel was an exceptional value and that our previous stays have always exceeded our expectations.
The room which my wife and I booked (room #126) met our expectations but we were totally embarrassed when we learned that the room my Son booked (room #317) was well below par. There were stains on the wall below the A/C, dirty carpet, dirty windows and stained lavatory from the brown water which came from the lavatory and bath faucets. My Son notified the desk clerk who apologized and offered a refund for that night and assured my Son that the items mentioned would be corrected. The items mentioned were not corrected by the time we returned to the hotel that evening as promised. My wife and I were so embarrassed that we felt it necessary to apologize to my Son and his family for suggesting that they cancel their hotel reservations and to book their two night stay at this hotel.
In addition to this, I told the clerk that I did not get a bill under my room door the morning of our departure. The desk clerk said that I would receive one VIA e-mail which I have not received at the time of this review.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jpzmud Not up to usual standards!
The inn was under going some renovations which effected the room we were given. Specifically the window and heating/AC were covered in thick poly which not only prevented us from seeing outside, rendered the heating/AC unit unusable. We were not advised which at the very least should have occured.
As a "Gold Elite" member this fact was not acknowledged!
On check out we were told their printer was not working and we would be e-mailed a receipt. 3 days later and two phone calls we are still waiting.
Customer service appears to be an issue at this location.

We spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. This hotel will be on our list of return when we are in the area.
No recognition for Priority Club any longer it seems....this has happened recently at other Holiday Inn properties.

I stayed at this property when running the Savannah Rock N Roll Half Marathon. The staff was extremely friendly from check in to check out. They had bottles of gatorade and water out for runners (and for anyone really) and opened the breakfast bar early for runners to eat before heading to the race.
The staff provided directions and map of the area along with information about road closures for the race. My parents were spectating the race while I was running so this helped us map out their parking/spectating plans.
If I run the race again in 2014 I would definitely stay here. While it's a little bit away from the downtown area, it still was close enough where it wasn't annoying to go that way. Plus it's close to the Bass Pro Shop, which made my Dad happy.

Up to standards. The only downside is the food at breakfast and that is not this locations fault. Across the entire chain it is the same. They should skip the eggs and omelets. I have stayed here several times and will do so again for business.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Illini77 Disappointing
We booked this inn for a getaway. As Gold Priority we've always been upgraded. This time no way. Inn is under heavy renovation. Scaffolding over window. Asked to be moved was told by desk manager there were no options. Thank you Corporate for getting us moved to a beautiful property further out, clean and delightful. Good Save. Still having issues with our card which has be obligated for the original stay as well as a single night reducing our available credit for rest of trip. Makes traveling very stressful

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tom in GA Wow....rough experience
I am not usually one to complain, but this hotel was probably the worst Holiday Inn experience that I have ever had.
We drove into Savannah with plans of checking into the hotel, dropping our bags and exploring downtown. Upon arriving to the hotel (approximately 230pm) I asked if it would be possible to check in slightly early and drop my bags off. I was told that there were no rooms ready yet. I asked if he knew about how long it would be and he told me he wasn't sure, maybe 10 minutes but it could be 2 hours. He wouldnt even look in the computer to see if there were any rooms available. I was told not to "miss what I had planned, but to go for awhile, and come back later.
I arrived back at 545pm and there was a lady trying to check in and she was being told her room wasn't ready yet. When I asked about mine, this front desk clerk did look in the system and issued a room to me. After changing clothes and going back downstairs, the lady that was in front of me was still sitting and waiting for her room.
No mention of my Platinum status, no cookie or water, no room upgrade...nothing. The room had a broken alarm clock, the back of the remote control for the TV was missing, there were polish streaks on the furniture, and the entire bathroom floor was extremely sticky.There was also no refrigerator or microwave in the room and you could hear people talking and showering while in the bathroom. There was no mention of the construction going on online when I booked, but my window was covered with clouded plastic so you couldnt even see outside. There was also trash strewn about all over the premises on the outside. An HI Express without the famous cinnamon rolls?
The bed was comfortable and checkout was easy, but those were the only positives here. Will most likely not return.

This Holiday Inn was wonderful, it provided all of the amenities you could need. They had a business center, I used to print some material for next day training, a fitness center and full breakfast with eggs, sausage, biscuits, bagels, yogurt, etc... I was impressed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mrpatrick1 everything but the mattress
Our Room was clean and service was great. The thermostat for the heat and air was confusing. The mattress in room 417 needs replacing. after the second night I found all the sags and bumps. We will be coming back on a continueing basis and I hope this can be resolved. I cannot be the only one to have noticed the mattress condition. I did not discuss this with the front desk. I wanted this review to be my forum.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kim's Not so competent desk clerk
We received our checks at check in- went to our room, turned on the light, and wondered whose luggage was in the room. We left the room quickly, where we were met by the desk clerk who realized his mistake. He gave us keys to our new room, tried to open the door but the security latch was in place - there were people in the room. Back to the front desk for more "I'm so sorry", and received yet another key. It seemed a little humorous, but thinking about it made us think about people who travel with guns etc. and it could have been a different story. Also, the eggs were awful. - did not taste like real eggs.
The bathroom smelled like an entire jug of bleach had been used - uncomfortable, and the floor was very sticky besides.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JAN2014 Excellent value and pet friendly
We were instantly happy with the pet friendly price of $25 for the stay and not $50 a pet/per night and stayed 4 nights. The staff member at the front desk was friendly and effiicient which was nice because we didn't have to wait more than 4 minutes for him to be done with our check in. The room was great. The only negative I have to add is that the next room alarm went off at 4am every morning and didn't turn off until around 8am. When mentioned to the front desk, they were very hesitant to say anything. They left a note. I was ready to pound on their door! Overall stay was great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by F0451550 Noisy
It seems that every time someone on the floor left their room their door slamming jolted and resonated throughout my room. Seems to me that the installation of a "door-slam" device would alleviate this issue. I was on the third floor, I could hear footsteps all throughout the evening of people either above me or beside me. I could hear the next door room's shower running as I lay in bed. I have chosen HIE on many occasions during my travels but have not ever noticed the level of noise I experienced with this 3 night stay.There has to be an architectural oversight in this building. The staff was most friendly and helpful. I wish I could recommend others to this property because of the staff's overall positive attitude but the noise control is a real problem. My guess is that your return stays at this property is substantially lower than the company's average.Sorry!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gatorcliff Overall poor
When we arrived we did not get the rooms we reserved. We had a suite and a regular room reserved. They said they were over booked on the suites and put 5 adults in two regular rooms. After we complained that the parking lot was empty they comped us another room which was appreciated but we should not have had to complain several times to get it. The towels were never brought to one of the rooms on time and when we complained we were treated rudely. The breakfast room was always crowded under stocked with food and the eggs were tasteless.

It was a great stay. The only thing I did not like is the web site states there are refrigerators and microwave in the rooms. But both of the rooms that I booked did not have them. This is the only Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed in that did not have them and I have spent a lot of time on the road.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by George6102 Staff Friendly, professional but stay was only "okay".
We stayed in Savannah for a romantic getaway. First and foremost, my husband sent a note online explaining I recently had 3rd Stage Kidney Carcinoma surgery and this was an opportunity to have some "us' time. The room they sent us to was 5 rooms down the hall as if they had no concern for my ambulating w/ a cane. Why ask if there were any requests or special circumstances? Second, The "King Suite" wasn't a "suite" at all, it was a room with a king size bed. and it was disappointing to say the least. The elevator looks like it hadn't been cleaned/vacuumed for a week or more. There was soda or juice stains on the elevator walls for the entire time we stayed which was from Saturday afternoon until Monday late morn., this isn't even describing the dirt and trash on the floor. Every time we stepped in the elevator to hit the buttons for our floor, the sticky mess was there on the wall. The stay was uneventful and we were disappointed with the nondescript room.
The staff was cordial and helpful with ideas of restaurants and directions. We were happy with the staff, it's the elevator, the long walk and the lack of discernment towards us and our needs that disappointed us. HIE requests info if we have special needs, when one explains the needs then evaluate them and meet the needs as you can. Ignoring the requests isn't polite, professional nor appreciated. This was supposed to be a getaway from the doctors and stress, making me walk farther than need be when there were closer rooms didn't sit well with us.
The staff did meet our requests for more coffee and other incidentals but overall, the cobwebs in the entrance of our room and the promised "suite" was just less than thrilling, then add our concern wasn't addressed then why ask it online? A great staff, just pay more attention to the little details, those are the ones that count.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HoptownBob Good location and friendly staff
This hotel is in a good location. It was missing a few things I'm use to having at other Holiday Inn locations. Some of the rooms do not have refrigerators and microwaves, they are provided if you request them. The business center lacks a lot. The one and only computer does not have any type of Microsoft Office programs so even if you take a thumb drive to the computer you still cannot print anything because the programs are not on the computer. I did manage to find drivers for the printer on the internet and install them on my laptop so I could print files from it. There are no washers or dryers in the hotel for guest, you have to go across the street and use a laundrymat. That express breakfast gets old fast when your there no than a couple days. The staff was friendly and we did get 0 balance invoices (which our company requires) under our door early the mourning we checked out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beachdude Maintenance staff
Hotel clean, up to date and comfortable. Best breakfast of any chain. Maintenance staff removed towels from room, but left none. Had to call desk to remind. Then, confronted maintenance staff in hall and , as usual in hotels, they did not speak good English. I don't know why hotels think that employing non-English speaking staff is good for business. Otherwise, all good.
P.S. No refrigerator or microwave in room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sirlj Average to less than average place to stay
There is nothing special about this property. I personally do not like the location as it is difficult to get in and out of. Especially arriving from the north or leaving to the south as the road system prohibits access. Next bad point about this site is the last 4 nights I have stayed here; there was no recognition of being a platinum elite member. The last time I inquired why and I was told they like to surprise us with a bottle of water and bag of pretzels in the room. That may be OK if you make your reservation in time to have that left for you. I do not have the luxury of knowing I am staying over particular evening until 30 minutes or so before arriving. The night started rough when arriving at 9:05PM and another guest had been waiting around for a while with no clerk in sight or a sign stating they will return soon. I waited for a good 7 - 8 minutes and they finally came around the corner. The person even jumped a little in shock that someone was even there. It was likely at least 10 minutes that they were gone without giving any notice they were to return. There was no apology for making us wait or anything. Just checking us in and supplying us with our room keys. Additionally, while walking into the facility, there was a car approaching the hotel entrance at a high rate of speed in a reckless manner. I really did not know if they were going to be able to stop and I prepared myself. The driver stopped, got out of the vehicle and came into the lobby and sat down. I explained in the morning when voicing my dissatisfactions that I believe the person driving was there to visit the evening clerk as they did not approach the desk to get a room. I asked for the GM to contact me this last stay about my disappointments. It has been over 32 hours and no phone call. I accept the lack of response to have no concern of customer care. I will not stay at this property. I am not sure if my Savannah stays will be with IHG in the future as my last favorite property to stay was purchased and is changing company management. There are no other IHG properties in the mid to downtown area. DARNIT!

Great value, new property but.... My hotel stay was just fine no issue whatsoever.mainly I didn't encounter the FD except for my check in which was fine .but on one instance I had to call one night to get a copy of my invoice emailed to me to finish an expense report. The FD clerk was reluctant to help me and said call back in the morning. I called guest relations and explained to them my situation to see if they could help, they called the FD at the hotel and again the same FD clerk was unwilling to extend a hand. I've had this happen at other brands and the FD clerk said they could help and emailed it to me right away.
