Savannah: Extended Stay America

Abercorn Street

Reviewed by: Joy W from MD, review #1896

When: May 2007

Cheap and cheerful studios outside the Historic District with free parking and low (for Savannah) prices.

I chose Extended Stay America (ESA) because the cost of staying in the Historic District of Savannah was too high for my budget on this trip. Also, I like having a kitchen and this hotel offered studio rooms. ESA is close to the intersection of Abercorn and DeRenne. Abercorn is a straight shot into the heart of Savannah.

The room was clean, albeit a bit worn (the carpet could have used a good steaming) with a view onto a storage facility. The front desk staff was very friendly, greeting us upon arrival and departure every time. We observed several construction employees staying here while working on assignment. Lower rates are offered to those staying a week or longer. There is no on-site restaurant or bar. A coin laundry is available on-site. Pets are allowed in designated rooms for an additional fee. Smoking rooms also available (but not advised).

We had a kitchen with full-size refrigerator/freezer, two burner stovetop, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, pots/pans and dishes/utensils for two. Our room was a Queen but they also offer rooms with a King or two doubles. There was plenty of hanging space, a recliner, television, one chest of drawers and two tables with chairs - I assume one table for workspace (they offer wireless internet for an additional fee) and one for eating.

The bed was firm with nice quality sheets and one pillow per person. The bathroom had a tub with shower, single sink with good counter space. Bath towels, hand towels and washcloths for two were provided. The front desk provides fresh towels upon request. No toiletries beyond bar soap are provided.

Just across the road is a Publix grocery store where we shopped for some breakfast items. We drove as the road was too busy to walk.

I pre-booked my room directly with ESA at a rate of $79 per night plus tax which ended up being $90 per night. We only stayed two nights but the nightly rate dropped to $59 plus tax if you stayed a week or longer. This is a plain, no-frills place to stay in midtown Savannah. I would stay here again.
