Full Disclosure: I am currently working with Hipmunk.com and other travel writers to work on an exciting new city guide project. I am being paid to write these articles, but it will help me bring a large guide section to our website, which i’ve been wanting to do since the beginning. So double win!
One of the oldest cities in the nation, Savannah is rich in history and is an exciting area to explore. A few of the hotels on the list are pretty lackluster when it comes to design and amenities, but budget travel isn’t for the faint of heart. These hotels are some of the cheapest places in the city – and will put you in a good location to explore Savannah with a comfortable bed and air-conditioning.
Days Inn Savannah Airport:
If you’re just landing in the Savannah Airport, this is a smart option to go with. After your plane ride, you’re probably going to want something easy for the night. They have their own restaurant and a bar to grab a refreshing drink at after your flight – and if the weather is nice you can hop in the outdoor pool. A cool feature is that they have a kitchenette in case you want to cook your own meals to save some cash.
Econo Lodge Midtown:
Found in the center of Savannah, you’ll be at the epicenter of activities and on-going events. They have close to zero special amenities outside of a free breakfast, but thankfully there is a lot to do nearby. If you’re new to the area, it’s a good idea to take a guided tour of the city. Do some research, or talk to someone at the front desk, to see if you can find a free tour close by early in your trip. It will help you come up with some cool things to do.
If you’re looking to visit Twelve Oaks Shopping Center or the Chatham Plaza, they are super close to it. Another plus is that the hotel is eco-friendly. This Art Deco hotel has a café if you’re in search of a caffeine rush, or take part in a daily reception to meet guests (that’s a pretty sweet feature). They also have their own restaurant, pool, allow pets so you can bring your little furries along, and have a kitchenette.
La Quinta Inn Savannah Midtown:
The La Quinta Inn Savannah Midtown is close to America’s most traveled highway, I-95, so if you’re renting a car (or have your own) you can get to anything you need to. The rooms allow your little furries, include coffee makers (so you’re not grumpy in the morning), in addition to premium TV channels. If you want to take a break from the hot sun, this hotel features a decent sized outdoor pool that you can hop into.
Masters Inn – Savannah Garden City:
This is the cheapest hotel on this list (it’s only a 1-star), so don’t expect much in the way of service or amenities. The benefit of staying here is that it’s incredibly inexpensive and that it’s centrally located in Garden City. So you’ll be near the Children’s Museum, Muse Art Warehouse, and the Georgia State Railroad Museum. The amenities at Masters Inn include laundry facilities and a small pool.
