About

The top choice of the pop culture travelers seeking hotels in Savannah downtown, Thunderbird Inn loves to be affectionately known as the “hippest hotel in Savannah“.™

The affordable 42-room, Swinging Sixties roadside lodge is popular with fun-loving and budget travelers. The restored retro inn reconnects travelers to an authentic, carefree era of simple comforts and fun times that blends history with chic getaways seamlessly. Go-green initiatives feature TBird’s declaration: “Earth is worth getting nostalgic about.”

In short, Thunderbird Inn (aka TBird, circa 1964) is the poster child of “hip”, especially when the topic is budget lodging in historic Savannah, Georgia founded in 1733. Ask anyone!

YES, THUNDERBIRD INN IS AUTHENTIC SAVANNAH: Kitschy interior décor includes Historic Savannah inspired paints – kicked up to embrace the retro spirit – plus, brightly-colored molded plastic chairs in the café and vintage bath ceramics.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY PRESS SHOUT OUTS: Pledging the ‘lowest rate downtown’ ‘Tbird’ earned budget lodging recommendations from New York Times, Brown’s Guides, Southern Living, and Ladies Home Journal.

COOL TOURISM LEADER: The fun-loving inn is a lively part of the ‘here and now’ — showcasing Savannah‘s serendipitous, kitschy-casual comforts that pair well with what’s groovy in pop culture and geek-dom.

TOP-NOTCH SERVICE:Staff Picks” introduce the lively, varied ways to enjoy repeat visits to America’s Most Beautiful City – The Hostess City of South. Visitors feel welcome and eager to return.

PET FRIENDLY: Exuding waggish friendliness [literally, this hip Savannah inn is uber dog friendly], family pups and cats can be a part of the spontaneous adventure for vacationing tourists and event travelers.

GROOVY AND EASY TO FIND: We like to say “T-Bird” is at the intersection of “Yes, Ma’am and Dude”, “Frugal and I Know A Place”. In reality, Thunderbird Inn’s location is on the corner of Oglethorpe Avenue and Fahm Street – with a big neon welcome signboard in clear view when guests arrive from South Carolina, right after crossing the Savannah River.

NEAR ATTRACTIONS AND EVENTS: On running routes for Rock N Roll Marathon and Enmark Bridge Run, our popular downtown inn is walking distance to big Savannah events at the Savannah Civic Center, Visitor’s Center, new Greyhound Bus & DOT transportation hub, sightseeing shuttles, new Children’s Museum, Georgia History Museum, Georgia Railroad Museum, SCAD Museum of Art and student dormitories.
