    « Stop for the night on the way to Florida »

    Clean and comfortable accommodations with a hot breakfast and a friendly and helpful staff. Since we were traveling to Florida and only wanted a place to spend the night, we wanted a hotel that was an easy on/ off to I-95

    « Thank you »

    We enjoyed our stay thank you, but the carpet should be removed in room where animal are accepted. It would be more appropriate for cleaning and would avoid allergies problems. It is appreciated when our dogs are accepted so thank you for that!

    « Savannah's best choice »

    Great customer service, easy to find hotel right off interstate, very clean rooms, everything worked in room, lots of coffee provided. Had car trouble and they held the downstairs room for me. Easy to get someone on phone and get directions when my car wouldn't start. Room was great quality for the price.

    « Great Stay »

    Very convenient location. Staff was very friendly and helpful if I had any questions about anything. Daughter will be attending GA Southern so Best Western Savannah will be my lodging spot. Hopefully next time I'll have time for breakfast..... it smelled delicious.

    « Loud and smelly. »

    Stayed here for two nights and couldn't manage to get a good nights sleep either night. The beds were okay and the place seemed clean enough; but the hotel is located right off the interstate, so you hear traffic noise allll night - and people at the hotel were very loud too. The first night there was a different group of incredibly loud (presumably drunk) people about what seemed like every 10-15 mins or so. The second night it wasn't as bad, but the interstate noise continued. The door didn't have an even halfway decent seal on it, so every time someone went out to smoke (which was often) you could smell it. The door seal problem didn't help with the interstate noise either. Breakfast was decent, staff seemed friendly enough, and prices were cheap, but I'm not sure it justified not being able to get a good nights sleep.

    Close to highway clean. A restaurant on property attendant at desk allowed me to change to a room with fridge and microwave. I had beer and a burger so this was most useful. Although this was a pleasure trip my business uses best western in king of Prussia Pennsylvania twice a year for fifteen years and that is most convenient

    « Its a way below Best Western Standards »

    Stayed here last week for 1 night. Room was on ground floor, at around 10 PM we came in and took our shoes off getting ready for a shower and bed wow within a few minutes of walking on that carpet our socks were black, yes, black carpet was not dirty it was beyond filthy. So Ok we get in bed and im reading my book and we have visitors, ROACHS crawling on the wall across from bed, we told front desk and of course we got the same ole answer "We are SO Sorry" really, im so tired of hearing this FIX IT. The housekeepers are well aware if the carpet is dirty and if the room has bugs. UGH! we will not be staying here again. Think we should have been given a refund not extra points. Shame on you Best Western

    « To attend SSU homecoming »

    We have stayed at this Best Western before. The management has clearly changed. It's not as well kept as it used to be. The bathroom did not smell quite clean so I sprayed it down with Lysol. We were there on Friday, October 28th. We went out for dinner and came back and found people hanging out drinking and smoking it the parking lot. It looked like a block party (and not the good kind). When we got to our room, there were people hanging out on the patio smoking near our door. They kept getting louder and louder until I had to call the front desk about the noise. There were cats and cigarette butts everywhere. On Saturday morning,I stopped by the front desk and asked for the manager; I waited several minutes, but he never came out. Needless to say, we won't go back there again.

    « Pet Friendly Best Western »

    We were pleased with our stay at this Best Western, particularly because we were traveling with pets. It is 2 steps up from a different chain we have used in the past. We will most likely use it again.

    many restaurants in area.chair in room was defective and ripped carpet.old type airconditioners leaked condense water on outside walkway.Still, considering competition, not a bad value for overnight stop on the trip to Florida.

    « Bait an switch to customers »

    Picked up my coupon from hotel savings, have stayed there at least 8 times. Upon arrival parking lot was not jammed,arrived at 3:45 and proceeded to check in. Receptionist told us when presenting coupon, that manager said not to redeem coupons. After all the advertising money, why would you decline a customer. After trading 18 hours, did not want a scene. We were charged almost double, felt like when hurricane came hotels were charging ridiculous fees. Now snowbirds are on the way down, there are no more affordable rooms available. I could see if it was 6 pm or later, but quarter of four? They have lost my business and my friends,

    « It was clean and ok, except for.... »

    The room was adequate and clean except for the noise from I-95. I would recommend staying on the other side to avoid the traffic noise. We had someone smoking on the balcony outside the room and the air conditioner vent pulled it all inside. It smelled awful, just like we were smoking and not good for someone with asthma. The continental breakfast was good and the serving room was large and clean.

    « Nice and Clean and Directly off I-95 »

    Great hotel for the money. Rooms were clean -- which is not always the case for the Best Western franchises, but this one passes the clean test with high marks. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Very convenient that it is directly off of I-95 and in an area that is walking distance to restaurants. Hotel staff was friendly and the free internet was working great too.

    « Nice weekend trip to Savannah and Tybee Beach »

    This was my second time staying at this facility. The room was clean, the staff was pleasant and the breakfast buffet was good. (But you gotta serve hot biscuits lol) This place is a great deal and great location. The drive to downtown is smooth and short. The drive out to Tybee isn't bad either. I'll be back.

    « Welcome Home! »

    We returned from mandatory evacuation from Hurrican Matthew and stayed at the BW Gateway. It was a nightmare staying in other hotels in Augusta GA, we were so happy to get home and stay at a BW. It was clean the staff was friendly and caring.

    « OK place »

    Choose this hotel because it's pet friendly. The room was clean. It could be cleaner. Behind the night table was dusty and dirty. Room smelled clean. Carpet was clean. Needs updating. Breakfast looked awful. Walked across to IHOP. Busy exit with lots of hotels, restaurants, gas stations. This would be a last resort. Definitely stayed in better pet friendly hotels.

    « Nice Staff. Adequate accommodations. »

    We stayed for two nights. It's an older hotel, so it's a bit dated but very clean. I could tell they take pride in caring for the rooms. The water pressure wasn't great, but it got the job done. Beds were fine. My only issue was the noise from I-95. This is not the fault of the hotel, it's just something to be aware of. It was quite loud as we were on the west side of the building. The front desk staff was wonderful. I somehow lost my room keys between checking in and getting to the room. The woman at the desk immediately made me new keys and told me not to worry! We did not have the free breakfast so I can't comment on that. I would recommend the hotel if you're looking for an inexpensive, safe, place to stay.

    « Inexpensive and clean, but older property. »

    We were looking for a hotel that gave us easy access off the interstate highway and found this one on Airbnb for $70 per night. Nothing really stands out but the price. Older property with damp odour in room but beds were clean and comfortable enough. Not a hotel I would go back to, as there were many other newer options nearby, but breakfast was included as well as wifi, and other than it being dated and basic, there were no real issues.

    « Room in the pet section »

    We had a nice stay at Best Western in Rocky Mount N.C so decided to stay at another in Savannah, Ga. We like "Motor Lodges" as opposed to inside only hotels. We were given a room with very strong smelling cleaning supplies or deodorizer. We discovered we were in a room next to one with 3 dogs. They started barking at 5:30 a.m. The carpet was dirty and looked like a pet room. I called the front desk about this and she said the manager would call us. Manager never did. There are 2 other "motor lodge" type hotels at this stop. We will probably try one of them instead next time. This is a great exit to stop. Everything is close by.

    « Stay away until refurbished. »

    Old, dirty, smelly room. Long black hair all over the bathroom. Several other properties off I95 in Savannah probably much better. I am a BW Platinum member so I know this is not up to BW standards. Cancelled my reservation for my return trip and glad I did. Stayed at another BW in another town off the Highway and glad we did.

    This was a pleasant, clean, functional motel. When you include free Wi-Fi and breakfast it became a great value! The location is very convenient to Savannah and 95. I would stay here again if the need presented itself.

    « Decent for the price »

    This motel is a lot older than the surrounding hotels/motels, but is reasonably priced. Rooms are clean and the breakfast is good with plenty to choose from. The air conditioner will freeze you they work so well, but tend to leave a huge puddle outside the room. The mattresses need replaced badly and the Wi-Fi is so-so. The clientele is construction workers and snowbirds traveling back and forth.

    Pleasantly surprised by cleanliness of older motel, beds were clean and comfortable, breakfast was more than adequate. Convenient, close to interstate and the Shell House restaurant. If you stay there, eat at the Shell House.

    « Great Place to stay-will go back »

    Very pleasant place to stay. Hotel staff couldn't do enough. Denny's restaurant was located right in the hotel so you didn't have to get back in the car and travel to another restaurant. That was great when you have been on the road and warn out. The breakfast was excellent and the lady taking care of it was so helpful also

    Great place and even a better value. Great location off I 95. Several restaurants in immediate area. Full hot breakfast the next morning was included and delish! Great pit stop as we were driving from Pennsylvania to Florida. Highly recommend. Would definitely return, and most important room was very spacious and clean.

    « Staff friendly...but there are bugs »

    Booked on the phone with Hotel.com late at night. I was assured it had good reviews. The staff member at the desk on check-in was friendly and efficient. The room had a musty smell and wasn't really clean near the bed, and in the corners, on the window, etc. Thought I saw something crawling but we were tired and needed to sleep. Left everything closed and up, on the table. In the morning there were a few roaches by the ac and window. I took pictures and checked out. The staff at the desk was friendly and apologetic. Because I pre-paid through a 3rd party there was nothing he could do as far as a refund, but quickly offered a half-price stay next time. I don't think there will be a next-time.

    « Still a good motel to stay »

    Just left couple hours ago. We have stayed here three times on way to Miami from Virginia. Perfect stopping point for us. As with our last stay 6 months ago it's still a great motel for the price. Very clean and the housekeeper for room 129 cares about there job. I am an owner of a vacation cleaning company and took notice to how nice housekeeper puts the towels and soaps and it was greatly appreciated to have a nice clean cared about room. Thanks to the housekeeper. Might stay on our way back !!

    Very nice hotel located outside of Savannah offering a good rate. The room could have been a bit cleaner - needed to clean under the dresser and behind. But overall a good choice. Easy access to Savannah. Breakfast room was well stocked and the food was good.

    « Clean, safe, spacious and wonderful pool »

    My boyfriend and I stayed for two night and had a great time. Everything was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was good, your standard continental with three waffle machines as well as hot eggs and sausage. Lots of fast food places nearby too. The only downside is that it's quite far from Savannah - a 20 minute drive. But other than that it was brilliant for the price.

    I was traveling to reach a dying friend; front desk very accommodating in assisting with quick check out to make sure I got back on the road quickly. Grateful for the help and the compassion shown. Its great to have people understand when you need to get in and out quickly and they rise to the occasion.

    « perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more »

    So conveniently located off of 95. We arrived late and were treated so well. The staff went out of their way looking for a cot and worked so hard to accommodate us. The motel is laid out so well. We were thrilled to be able to park right out in front of our first floor room. Breakfast exceeded expectations and the lady working the breakfast was so friendly and attended to everyone's needs while keeping everything goes so clean. Room was clean. Wish we had time to enjoy the pool. We would absolutely stay here again.

    « Great value »

    Convenient location off 95 and about 20 minutes to the historic district of Savanah, this Best Western is a great value! Highly recommend if looking for a very reasonable night's stay with breakfast included. Breakfast was extensive, with oatmeal, waffles, Bagels, eggs, sausage, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. We definitely got our money's worth!

    « My go to »

    I think I've stayed here about 5 times now. They have good prices, has a Denny's attached to the hotel and is surrounded by other places to eat. I'll always make this my go to place when staying in Savannah. It's a 10-15 minute ride to downtown. I like that I'm not staying downtown because it's too busy for me. I prefer to have some "breathing room" when I go visit other places.

    « Review of Best Western Savannah Gateway, GA »

    After having stayed at this hotel in the past, though not in the past few years, I was surprised at the way the room had gone downhill. The mattresses on both beds were so bad that when you got in the bed, you literally sunk to the box spring. Also, when you turned it felt as though you were falling out of bed. The hotel is older, but it was not quite up to par for what I expect from Best Western. The front desk staff at checkout and the restaurant server we had, as well as the staff member working the continental breakfast on Saturday were wonderful. I would definitely check further to see what is on trip advisor before I stay there again, though I always prefer to stay at Best Westerns when traveling with family, and love the location!

    We chose this Best Western because we were traveling with a dog and they allowed pets. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and quiet it was, even though the hotel was fully booked for the night. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. This was a great deal for the price.

    « GREAT LOCATION »

    I stayed here on a business trip over the weekend. All the rooms are accesed from outside but I like that. The pool was very nice and clean. They have a Denny's on sight to eat at but no thanks for me. Lots of other choices with the other hotels clos buy. I walked to the Applebees. It was in the upper 90's this weekend and the air conditioner work great. My only complaint was that hey do not have laundry service as I travel for weeks at a time. Hotel staff was great and fun to chat with. I will stay here again when im in town.

    « What on earth was that smell?!?! »

    My friends and I stayed here two Saturday's in a row. Both times I awoke in the middle of the night to a horrible smell. I can only explain it best as rotten eggs. My friends and I think it might be the air conditioners. We stayed in rooms 204 and 208. Other than the smell it was great.

    The room was average. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. What I expected for the price. It is an overall "ok, no frills" place to stay that is relatively close to downtown Savannah. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was your standard motel fare.

    The Motel staff was awesome, they showed us great hospitality, always willing to answer questions and accommodate us with a smile, Kudos.The Motel room was nice an clean, the air conditioner worked great. The only problem with the room is that one of the beds was kinda lumpy. The breakfast was satisfying, really good and a nice variety of choices, whether you wanted to eat light or heavy. I would stay at this Motel again if I had the opportunity.

    Decent place for the price, but be sure to "bring your own" for the walk to second floor for your room. Older hotel, great staff but non-working refrigerator, microwave missing heating tray, makes for an uncomfortable stay after a long trip from NJ.

    « Alright for 1 night »

    My fiance, our 5yr old & myself stayed at this Best Western location at Gateway Center i95 South, on our way down & back from our Disney trip just a few weeks ago. We booked both stays in advance due to having a great advanced price compared to all the other places to stay overnight nearby with the exception you couldnt cancel or else you loose your money. We've never stayed at any BW prior but we thought how bad could it be with all those other great hotels nearby. It wasn't a terrible stay but.... The area itself is perfect for a quick family stop. Lots of different hotels, attractions, gas stations & restaurants of all kinds, so that's a plus. The BW itself was just alright. The lobby is modern, the rooms not so much & the staff was a hit or miss with courtesy. The exterior was prestine & they always were cleaning it & keeping it beautiful looking. The parking lot was not littered with trash or ciggarette butts ever. I Definitely wouldn't recommend staying more than 1 night at this hotel/motel nor stay at all if you have smaller children, especially toddlers or babies that need to crawl around or are closer to the rug though. The rooms were spacious, which was a pleasant surprise but the rugs & bed linens were always damp and the rooms itself smelled musty and stale. Actually my daughter who never had allergies previouly had gotten severe allergies within the 1st half hour of arriving in our room & then disappeared within a few hours of leaving and likewise on the stay home again. Our inital thought during our 1st stay to the dampness was our rugs must of just been shampooed (even though anyone can tell otherwise) & same for the linens but it inevitably was due to poor air circulation so the whole time everything in the room was damp (& this was in 2 seperate rooms during 2 seperate stays, within 2 weeks apart). Even our bodies felt sticky and damp & had that musty smell. The overall visual cleanliness was so-so. You can tell they changed the sheets & vacuumed but they didn't get close to any walls or corners. There was piles of dust & dirt there clearly noticable. Plus the towels didn't look that clean, specifically the face clothes were dingy, looked used & didn't look bleached or bright. The beds were surprisingly comfy even though we dare not pull back anymore than the top sheet. Sheets had some stains & dingy also. Pillow/cases looked fine. We booked 2 identical double bed rooms & the 1st 1 came with a fridge & microwave, the 2nd time we stayed on our way home, those items were missing & you could see where they clearly used to be. We didn't bother mentioning anything but we did need a fridge because we had items that had to stay cold. Plus their website states all rooms come with those amenities. The bathroom was a bit scarey. We didn't want to shower in it, so we waited until we got to disney & then on the way home waited until our next hotel stop after this BW. We were going from Disney to Massachusetts, so we stayed at a few different places along the way. This BW was definitely the poorest one of them all. Their pool was immaculate though & nicely sized. We spent most our time in there because we wanted to spend the least time in our rooms as possible. It was nice though that they were attached to a Dennys that was open for take out 24/7 but I don't think we'll be staying at this BW location during future Disney trips. I rather pay the extra $50- $100 for a place that I know is consistent with their standards. I hate even giving a mostly negative review but it's the truth.

    « Great Price and Location »

    Before booking, I read so many reviews some not favorable, but said let me just give this place a try. Glad that we did, it was easy access to I-95 and also close to Richmond where we had friends and easy access to Downtown. The room was clean and when we asked for extra towels they were available when we returned to the room. Free breakfast, I was thinking, cereal, toast coffee etc. Not sausage, waffles, muffins, pastries, bagels, eggs, O.J, Coffee, Tea. WOW. That went beyond. The front staff was awesome and friendly. Stop through you may be surprised.

    This is unacceptable... 2x4's holding up the AC unit. Cigarette burns in the sheets. Dirty carpets. Carpet threshold on the adjoining room doesn't match the room carpet. Smells TERRIBLE. Trash behind the refrigerator. Rust on the interior of the door. Adjoining room hinge and interior hinges rusted. Mattresses are COMPLETELY shot. Chrome exposes rack for hanging clothes rusted. Very poor finish and repair work. Case goods are in great shape,,, other than that, NEVER AGAIN... The door isn't properly installed. The top meets, where the handle is located, there is a huge gap.

    Motel convenient to interstate highway, easy access. Close to eating establishments. Room was nice but door latching mechanism needed repair, looked as if just enough to get by was done so not to be a costly repair. Had to remove a gecho from the bathtub prior to showering. Good price, complimentary breakfast.

    « Room OK wifi poor »

    Whilst our stay at this motel was OK, the wifi connection was weak and intermittent. But after paying our bill on checkout, a day or two later there was another charge of $280+ to my card that was obviously not part of our bill. After trying many times to contact the motel over several weeks (there is no email address on their web site) we found a 1800 number for Best Western and a person who could help solve this issue. 3 weeks after the charge was found on my card it has been credited back to me - unfortunately too late to use for my holiday.

Since i have been staying there over the last ten years twice a summmer the veteran cleks at the desk all remember me and handle my needs when i arrive. you can't buy that kind of help or pleasant stay anywhere else.

    A nice economy hotel. But I had a problem with it. I checked in around 2:00am and asked a reception desk employee for a late checkup at 12:00pm. She said she will take care of it. But at 11:00am a room cleaning lady was baning on my door apparently unaware of my request.

    Had a wonderful stay here, when we got into the room, it was very cozy and cold sense it was 100 degrees outside. And the complimentary breakfast was awesome! Would definitely stay here again. And it is only 15 minutes away from the Historic town of Savannah and only 30 minutes away from Tybee Island!

    « Clean good place to sleep but »

    the amenities have slipped this past year. The Breakfast was excellent due to the single staff doing a job well done. Congratulations. The room had a minifridge which was way too warm and the knob was set at max. I know as I put 2 temp gauges in it. Good thing I wasn't packing dairy or fish or meat products this trip. There was no TV Guide scroll on any TV channel. The minifridge freexer was teensy and Iit never refroze even one reusuable ice block and the other 4 never made it to the mini freezer. It was way to warm anyways. I could have taken them to the lobby and the night staff would have refroze them overnite but I was simply too tired after driving all day to get here. As I said, a fairly nice sleep but amenities not so much except for the lady doing an excellant breakfast layout.

    Just needed a place to lay my head on way up the coast. This looks fine on the outside and the room really belies its age. But that musty damp rug smell from to many years of humid air was present. But hey, for the price you almost have to expect it. Room was by the pool....if I had thought twice I probably would have asked for a different room. The 'boys' where home from work and having some beers by the pool till after 11. Not so loud but loud enough. Includes breakfast.

    « Best Western Savanah Gateway, an inexpensive place to stay »

    This motel is set amidst a plethora of motels right off the highway ( I-95), and right next to a Denny's that services the complimentary breakfast. The trip to Savannah is definitely work the 20 minute ride. A great walking around place that always seems fresh, with unique shops and restaurants, as well as of great historical significance. The hotel does need some updating inside, but for a quick rest stop it suits the bill.

    You can't do any better than a Best Western. Staff was great, rooms were clean. They do allow pets. Close to dinning areas or use the one at hotel. It was right off interest state did not have to drive very far it find it Breakfast was a full breakfast, not just fruit and coffee. Bed were great best sleep I had in a long time. I would be happy to tell anyone they to go and stay at a Best Western anytime. Never have been disappointed when I stayed at a Best Western.

    « Pretty good for the buck »

    We visited Savannah on the first weekend of May and we had no complaints staying at Best Western. The staff were very friendly and we liked the fact that it was strategically placed near a gas station and IHOP for those who prefer to have breakfast elsewhere. The drive to downtown Savannah was also pretty short so I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable yet comfortable place to stay.

    « They make a good effort, professionalism and pride in their work is apparent »

    Not the most modern facility but it is well maintained and cared for by hard-working conscientious people. We got a room right next to I-95, but due to the double-pane glass picture window, the sound didn't disrupt our sleep. It is integrated into a Denny's Restaurant which was convenient. However the hotel has it's own large well-managed breakfast area which is notable. In all my travels I have never seen a 100% rating on a posted health inspection certificate which they had. Plus the staff members greeted us when we arrived and made sure all of the food stations were in good order. I noticed one person taking out extra food and was surprised to see the hotel breakfast staff person offer to go get her a bag. Now that is class.

    « Average Hotel »

    « Bed bugs and ticks. »

    There were bed bugs and ticks in my bed. It's frustrating to be awake at 3am because you are being bitten by bed bugs on your legs and ticks on your arms!!! When you are a pet friendly hotel, you should have special rooms for pet only guests. All other guests should be put in pet free rooms!!! That will at least get rid of the tick problem.

    « Not good a good place to stay considering the price »

    I stopped here on the way to Florida to spend the night. In the past I've had good experiences at Best Westerns. However, this one was very disappointing, especially considering the price. First off the room was not very clean. There were crumbles from the previous guest all over the table and floor in the bathroom was not clean. Then the sheets on the bed were small and there were holes in them since they had been washed so many times. The room itself just seemed a little dingy. Also since The air-conditioning have been turned off, the room was quite humid when I arrived. The plus side was that the bed was actually quite comfortable and the breakfast in the morning was decent. Although I'll probably stay in another Best Western hotel, I definitely won't be staying here next time.

    « Try and get a room away from the main road »

    Bit disappointed with our 2 night stay here, our room was very close to a very noisy road and the beds tho comfortable did not have big enough sheets on them so they kept coming off as you turned over in the night. The rooms were also not cleaned each day, just the beds made and thats it, no bins emptied or bathrooms cleaned and our friends didn't even have their beds made, when we complained about this on leaving reception staff were very disinterested! Good points are the pool (no pool towels tho)and breakfast.

    « Overcharge for Quality of Bedding... »

    We were traveling south from Atlanta to St Agustine, Florida and decided to look at a hotel in this area. There are probably no less than ten hotels to choose from at this location and most of them would probably be classified in the mid range of cost/value. We decided on this Best Western Savannah Gateway. It was neat and clean on outside, landscaping well kept and foyer area, modern and updated with friendly staff and an attached to a Denny's. We assumed that the rooms would follow suit. We asked for a downstairs room and they offered us the Handicap/No smoking room, that boasts a refrigerator ( does that mean others do not have one?). We are not handicapped but wanted a downstairs location for luggage reasons. We drug our luggage inside of room and began to settle in for one evening. The room was dated but carpet was newer as well as furniture and green paint on walls. We proceeded to walk across the street to a near by restaurant. The bed we just " thought " was rough, until we actually bedded down for the night. I read, on trip advisors, where everyone else was bragging on their beds??....I don't know. The box springs were even sagging, the mattress and box springs were worn out and would guess the "Effective" age of this mattress was close to 25 yrs old ??. Maybe they have replaced beds, in other rooms, except for Handicap? We are retired...so maybe we are at the age that we expect a bed to be newer and comfortable, and for $100.00 a night...is that unreasonable??? We could have chosen a less pricy hotel and then we would expect older, worn out mattresses??. Please also remember to check out these older, Ventless AC/ Heaters. Our AC unit worked great, as far as temperatures/fan goes. What we did not notice, until late at night is that every time the AC Compressor kicks on, it sounds like a train rolling through your bedroom??. Oh my, we did not sleep well, at all. Unless this room is atypical, we do suggest you view your room first; turn on your AC unit, sit on the bed and bounce a couple of times, lie down, check to see how flat your pillows may be, pull the sheet back and see if your box springs are yellow with age and if they appear to sag. If you notice any of the foregoing and/or if your quality of sleep is important to you, you may want to consider a different hotel. On a positive note, The staff was friendly and Accomodating, grounds were well kept and is in walking distance of several eat places. Their Continental Breakfast has to be the highlight of OUR stay. That CB menu was varied, the eating area was clean, the waitstaff was very eager to see to anyone/everyone's need or requests.........very kind and helpful sweet lady. We Won't revisit this Best Western....and will always be skeptical of any other Best Western Hotels without an in-room inspection before booking. Good Luck!!

    « Comfortable stay, great value, helpful staff!! »

    We drove from CT to FL with another family and I picked this location for a 1 night stopover based on convenience, location and price. We arrived at the hotel at 10 am, much to early for an early check in, but the front desk receptionists let us use the lobby bathroom to freshen up and gave us some very good advice on spending the day in Historic Savannah. Upon return to this hotel, our check in process was quick and were given 2 adjoining first floor rooms overlooking the pool area. The children were able to use the pool while the adults relaxed and the noise from I95 was minimal. There are a few chain type restaurants within walking distance and we had an enjoyable dinner at Houlihan's. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet and the wifi worked just fine. The exterior of the hotel was well kept and the area seemed safe. There were plenty of breakfast options included in the free breakfast and the 2 women working it were friendly and helpful. Another staff member went out of her way to open the pool early for me so I could read while the rest of my party was getting ready to leave. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in this area.

    This was a very nice looking facility with comfortable beds, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast with many items.

I will definitely stay at this location on my next trip through.

    « Terrible beds with sheets that didn't fit »

    We stayed in room 127 for 2 nights.We visited with family on the first night and were late getting to bed.The beds were only full sized.They were like sleeping on a trampoline and the sheets kept popping off.I should have called the front desk and complained but did not.We stayed for the second night and checked out the next morning.I spoke with the manager Steve and he did take off have the amount for the second night only.He told me there were supports under the bed that may have been knocked up when the maids cleaned the rooms.( We went back to the room and looked there were not any such supports even on the under side of the beds,there were also no supports of any kind just sitting on a metal frame) The bathroom smelled of mold.The best thing this hotel has going for it is the breakfast which was great and the lady who was working in the breakfast area took pride in her work and kept everything hot and fresh.The clerks at the desk were also very courteous and the one who checked us out suggested I talk with the on duty manager which was named Steve and to be honest this manager obviously did not have a clue what goes on in the rooms since he thought the beds had supports under them.My advise for Steve is get out of the office and take a walk and check out the rooms.Oh I also forgot to say the sheet had a tear on the side of it and caught my toe as I got out of bed and almost caused me to fall.I was lucky enough not to fall.

    « Good experience »

    The room was clean with sheets and a blanket between (which are preferred) vs a comforter. The water pressure in the shower took a little time to adjust but it was a nice soft shower. Being a Motel next to I-95, the traffic noise was not too bad until there was an accelerating motorcycle or truck. I slept well. Breakfast hosted by Denny's was good with a great selection but, the coffee could have been a little stronger. All types of milk was provided including Silk. If something was needed, all one had to do is ask one of the great staff. We were hoping to get an early check-in but they would not accommodate this since our pre-assigned room was not clean at our time of arrival. (2 PM) i.e. They would not afford us a room that may have been already prepared.

The property needs updating but there were workers there doing just that. The front desk staff were friendly and the breakfast was okay. If you want more in the morning, there are several nearby restaurants. My only complaint is the wi-fi was iffy in the morning. The value is good for what you get.

    We stay at Best Western hotels often when travelling. This is an older hotel but the price was right. On our one night stay, the room was ok except for two things: 1) There was someone else's garbage in one of the waste baskets, and 2) There were layers of tissue (possibly toilet tissue) under the rubber anti-slip mat in the bathtub. The tissue shredded and floated about when my wife took a bath. Yuk! Very strange, we believe that room make-up service must be below par here.

But the smell was actually coming from 2 out of 3 pillows on my bed. It's like tons of musky hair products. We had some blankets and pillows of our own thank goodness.

    This hotel is reasonably priced and is well situated for histroric Savannah.

    This was my second stay here (the first was 2011) and my initial impression held: this Best Western is adequate for an overnight stay on the way to somewhere else, and that's about it. The room was clean and the staff pleasant, but my mattress was miserable - rather like sleeping on a lumpy marshmallow. Breakfast was standard, although I was pleased to find adult yogurt choices. However, it was pouring rain and there was no way to reach the breakfast room without going out from under cover - there should be a covered walkway.

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff that goes the extra mile. Hotel is comfortable, beautiful and almost new. I felt safe and comfortable in the hotel, the location of the hotel is convenient off I95. And is minutes to the Tanger outlets. Will make it a regular stop in my travels.

    The breakfast was awesome and the help was friendly. The only problem is to be sure to locate your room on the side of the motel away from I95. Very noisy on the I95 side due to road noise. I will definitely stay here again. Ps: Also a 24 hour Denny's located in the motel.

    « Good hotel to visit Savannah, GA »

    The location is located right off I-95 and about 15 minutes from Downtown Savannah. There are many restaurants nearby, Denny's is shared the same building as check-in desk. You won't go hungry if you stay at this hotel. The room is clean (no bed bugs, I checked twice!), very roomy. The breakfast is typical continental breakfast, it is good enough to have something in your tummy to start the day. If you like something more fancy, just go to Denny's. This location has plenty of parking spaces, next to I-95 and 204 (go to Tybee Island and Downtown Savannah). The bed is OK, I was so tired with all the driving from Atlanta and to/from Jacksonville, so I slept well. I would recommend this hotel and looking forward to stay at this location again in my next trip. Ps. The ladies at the breakfast room are exceptionally nice and helpful.

    « Best Western, not what used to be! »

    Stay clear of Best Western at Savannah Gateway in Savannah Ga.. Dirty and smelly room and this was the Handicap room. Sure it's off I-95 and its convenient. But if I had to do it again, I would spend the extra $10 to $20 to stay at one of the Choice Hotels or the Marriott chain.

    This hotel is a bit dated. However I must say the staff are great. We had a concern with our bed and the manager Steve Norment explained the issue they were having and took care of situation. I am rating sleep quality as terrible because I bed was not comfortable due to box spring problems. This is being corrected I have been told so this should no longer be a concern.

    « Great stay while on the road to Fla. »

    Stayed on 12/26/15...w/my wife and 2 daughters. We were traveling to Fla. and stopped here as it was about halfway. Check-in was fast, and our room was clean and comfortable. Easy to get to from I-95. There are places to eat nearby. Breakfast was adequate and free, nice way to start the next leg of our trip. Check-out was fast. I would recommend this property for any purpose.

    « Good for the money.... »

    The prices are very good, our room was super clean and comfortable and the staff superb and accommodating. We have stayed here before, several times, and will stay again. Convenient to historic downtown (15 mins or so), nice restaurants close by, but far enough off the beaten track to not be bogged down by crazy traffic. Breakfast is so so, but so it is with every hotel these days....fills you up, but nothing to write home about. We will stay again when we return to visit Savannah.

    My husband and I stayed one night on our way to Florida. The hotel staff was very nice and the room was comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast on Christmas morning and the staff was very helpful. Comfortable bed, nice shower and clean room. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone traveling on I-95. Very convenient to the interstate and lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

    « Okay for just sleeping »

    Our room was clean and the property felt safe. For as cheap as it was, that's about the best you can hope for. The whole complex seems old and dated. Our carpet, although clean and not torn or anything, had seen better day. The doors were hard to close (hated having to slam it at 6 in the morning). Breakfast wasn't good. It wasn't terrible, just okay, barely. There is an attached Denny's that's opened 24 hours but it was also run down. We only had a dessert there, which was okay but not "good". There was a guy talking to the manager about having an entree removed from his bill. There are restaurants very nearbly however. So if you're traveling, going to get there late, crash and leave first thing in the morning, then this is fine. Any longer than that and I'd recommend one of the neighboring places (at a price 50% higher).

    Nice place close to Interstate - a little too close since lots of traffic noise. Lobby shared with Denny's. Front desk provided handout with list of breakfast items including bacon - but no bacon in the morning! Grrrr. WiFi very good as was TV. Large room with fridge and nice table with two chairs. No desk though although there is plenty of room. Grab rail in shower.

    « OK hotel for overnight stop along I 95 »

    Room was clean and most everything worked except for the TV remote and the hair dryer. It was OK for an overnight stop along I 95 and it was affordable. Breakfast was nothing special and coffee was not that good but they did have a Keurig in the front desk area and it had some very nice coffee choices.

    « Very nice hotel and property »

    « Not bad for the price »

    This is definitely an older hotel that has had some minor updating, painting. It is your basic outside entry room that was pretty clean except for the carpet. It was located on the back side of the property (not next to I 95) and was quiet and convenient for our stopover going south. Staff were very nice and accommodating. However There were two issues with the room, carpet felt sticky and needed cleaning and the toilet seat was broken. Both issues will be brought to BW's attention when we rate the hotel through their standard survey after our stay. If u want something more updated, stay somewhere else.

    « Clean, convenient and courteous »

    Nice clean room, even for a room that accommodates pets. (We brought two small dogs.) The area is very humid, everything felt damp until we started running the AC. The free breakfast is good, however all the meat selections are pork. Having the Denny's in side was a big plus. This was a family Christmas trip, so I really appreciate the staff being so courteous. The mattresses had absolutely no support. The name implies it's in Savannah, GA, but it's 15 ,miles away from it.

    « Popular spot for basic accommodations »

    We stayed here last year also on our way south. Basic accommodations that we accessed with hotel coupon app. Breakfast not very good - disorganized and fruit did not seem to be fresh. But, coffee and a bagel and yogurt were all we needed and they were provided, so for the price we were happy! Downside is parking lot is very open and we worried about our "stuff" in plain site in back of our SVU so unloaded a lot of it for peace of mind. Second floor...no elevator...was daunting!

    Many hotels are a challenge for a person who is in a wheelchair, this was no exception. We did get a room on the first floor. The room was small and a tight fit for the wheelchair. The bathroom was not accessible for a shower, no seat, but as usual plenty of grab bars. The internet was weak and it could have been cleaner. Just OK

    « This hotel delivered! »

    We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on our way home during Thanksgiving wknd. We were exhausted and just needed a place to crash. We booked it the day before and called to advise of our late arrival. I picked this hotel of convenience ? next to I-95, and it had a low economic price with free parking and free breakfast. My stay was perfect, or what you would consider ?just exactly what I needed'. We arrived at 1am and our room was clean, decent with no smells, it was facing the parking lot (not the highway). A/C had a bearable white noise (Room 208), the heater (it was a 30s night) worked good. Towels were not fluffy, but did the job and the free breakfast was a plus. We only had waffles and coffee but enough to get us thru the next stop. TV had the news/weather channels we needed for information to continue on our trip. For those reasons: cleanliness, convenience, features and free parking/breakfast, I must give this hotel a 4 stars based on price. It delivered! Best Western kept it to its standards. Will definitely stay here again. P.S: I would not consider this a vacation nor a resort hotel. If you are looking to spend more than few nights, I would suggest to invest more $$$$. If you are not crazy about the free breakfast, across the street there is an Ihop and 5 steps away, a Denny's and McDonald's. Can't go wrong!

    « Decent economy hotel, near restaurants and shopping with good service and clean, comfortable rooms! »

    One good thing about Best Western is their continental breakfasts but I have had much better breakfasts at some of the other properties. With that said and done, the staff was very accommodating and courteous, it was near restaurants and shopping and we were very comfortable in the room. It was clean. You also don't want to spend too much time in your room and explore the history and waterfront in Savannah!

    « BEWARE- Crooked and Shady »

    We made the reservation as a just in case for traveling home from Fort Lauderdale. We found out we were not going to be able to make the reservation. I called around 5:30 to cancel and the lady smugly told me I would still be charged because I was 1.5 hours late. Hmmm.... A hotel right off an interstate on the Saturday after thanksgiving. Sounds like they will pocketing the extra $$$ because I'm sure the room will be booked tonight. Very Shady if you ask me. My family and I will not be staying with Best Western ever again. There was a discrepancy among the cancellation policy on the email and the one from the hotel. This hotel and corporate refused any kind of refund or voucher.

    « Great Continentals Breakfast »

    Room was okay. Typical of Best Western. Clean but old. But their Staff were friendly & was pleasantly surprised to see vast array of food. Was expecting only bunch of carbs like bread & muffin but they had eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, cereal, Jimmy Dean sausage, egg & cheese croissant, waffles, muffins, bagels, apples, bananas, fruit cups, and oranges. Not to mention Denny's in the hotel U.S. open 24/7. Will choose this place again in future stay.

    Last minute trip to Savannah so somewhat limited on choices. Usually stay at BW plus and use/accrue rewards points.. Most hotels give a small bag of snacks since we are platinum members, not this one. The room was average except the bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. The in room phone had black mold on the spiral cord connecting to receiver to the phone. Missed the little perks of shampoo, body wash and soaps.

    « The worst experience ever!!! »

    I am not the type of person whom regularly reviews places but this experiance called for a fair warning to others. We tried two different rooms while we were there. The first room smelled like cat urine and had a large wet spot in front of the ac. when we turned the heat on it set off the fire alarm and smelled like burning rubber. when we switched rooms they put us in a room without a fridge and microwave and i have a little one so i have thimgs that must be refrigerated. I asked if they had another room and they tried to put me back in the first room because the first woman I delt with had marked it as clean in the computer so they could really sell it. The blankets on the bed appeared thin, no comforter. The bed was hard. Television didnt want to turn on and when it finally did it wad very poor quality. Over all one of the WORST experiences of my life. If it were possible to give it 0 stars I would

    « Reasonable »

    This place is okay for the price. Rooms were okay and clean but the outside of the Hotel on the pathways could do with a good Power Wash as they were pretty grotty. The room doors were built like fortresses so either that tells you that there has been a problem in the building sometime in the past or somebody spent a fortune on the wrong things at this hotel. The breakfast was pretty good. The area had a lot of police cars cruising by each time we looked out or were outside so maybe there is a problem in the area though we didn't have any trouble

    We checked (easy check-in, nice staff) in after driving 12 1/2 hours. It was late in the evening, so we put our luggage in the room and went to dinner. We came back to the room and relaxed, watching TV. After feeling a sharp object against my foot, we noticed that the carpet was full of fingernail/toenail clippings under and around the table. Disgusting!!! Since we were in nightclothes, and it was after midnight, we took tissues and cleaned them up ourselves. The internet WiFi was abysmal and we had to disable it to use our phones. The beds were terrible--lumpy mattresses and bowed in the middle. The only positives were that the staff was cordial, and the breakfast was tasty.

    The hotel was decently nice in a seemingly good area. The downplay was the air conditioner was pretty loud. And that the beds were uneven or lumpy. It wasn't bad for the cost.

We got a double room for 60euros and got amazing quality for that price. This hotel is just 15 minutes away, by car, from Savannah's riverfront. The hotel was clean, the beds were super comfortable and the employees were really nice offering suggestions and advice. Special regards for the breakfast.

    The hotel was general satisfactory. But, the price for the quality was high in my opinion. But, that is what happens at popular locations. You rarely get what you pay for in hotels. It was nice to have an adequate size pool rather than a small pool. Luckily, it was outside our door so we adults could sit around and visit. Plenty of places to eat for all middle class traveling pallets.

    « Hotel Provides Free Wake Up Calls With Honda Horns and Employee Kids »

    Once again, tired and flat worn out from another leisure day on the road, check in problems arose. The room assigned to us already had an occupant. Gladly, the guest was out as I kept ramming the plastic key in it's slot. Another trip to the office resolved the problem. A hot shower and a case of exhaustion brought on a peaceful and comfortable sleep. Sadly, the alarm clock, a dark purple Honda, I believe, with two young children in it, found the horn. Someone one else must have called because a young lady, later identified as an employee, came sliding around the walkway yelling at the children. The honking stopped as did the sleep. Other than that, an excellent place to stay with easy access to the highway. And yes, I would stay there again.
