"This was my second time staying at the Eliza Thompson House in Savannah and it won't be the last. My husband and I stayed in one of the rooms with the entrance on Jones Street and loved it. The room was very large and clean. The daily breakfast, afternoon wine and evening desserts were tasty and a good opportunity to meet the other guests. The home is very convenient to everything Savannah has to offer. We walked everywhere we went and felt very safe. All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful."  --January 24, 2014

"I stayed at the Eliza Thompson House for a business trip, but I would recommend this spot for couples or a girls trip. The location is extremely convenient, Savannah is a very walkable city and in 3 days I didn't need a car once. It was fun to be on such a beautiful and quiet residential street among million-dollar homes. I did notice a couple of reviews that took issue with the House seeming old or worn-down, I did not experience that in my room. I stayed in one of the king-bed courtyard rooms and it was very clean and quaint. I couldn't hear any noises from surrounding rooms, just the pleasant fountain in the courtyard."  --January 21, 2014

"This was our second trip to Savannah and the first time to stay at The Eliza Thompson House. It is located on the most beautiful street in the Historic District of Savannah. It's location next to Bull Street with Abercorn the next main street over couldn't have been more convenient to anywhere you want to go in the Historic District. Wear comfortable shoes and start walking, it is the best way to see the area. The staff is wonderful and attentive to any request or need you may have. Miss Virginia provided the breakfast each morning which was delicious and filling, so much so that we skipped lunch. Joining the other guests in the parlor each evening for wine and hors d'oeuvre was one of our favorite things while staying at The Eliza Thompson House. It was wonderful to visit with everyone regarding their own travels as well as hearing recommendations for activities and restaurants in Savannah.  Dessert in the evening was equally nice. We were always ready to wind down in our room after a busy day of sightseeing. One of the reasons my husband choose The Eliza Thompson House is it is adults only. We love children, but this was a romantic getaway for us and it was really nice that is was adult only."  --January 17, 2014

"This was a wonderful Inn convenient to all of the sites. I made an error with the reservation and the staff was able to accommodate us even though we arrived after 8 pm with no reservation for the first night. We stayed in room 130 which was absolutely beautiful. We felt like the society folk of the antebellum era. The whirlpool tub in our bathroom was a nice modern touch."  --December 2, 2013

"Very intimate, low key property for those looking for an out of the way hotel.Love the breakfast which you can take out into the courtyard. Great location to see and wander over all of the history of "Old Savannah". Excellent staff that will look out for any of your personal needs, and within walking distance of any significant historical site in downtown. Many good restaurants nearby as well."  --November 22, 2013

"From help getting into the house with our luggage to a leisurely wonderful southern breakfast (slightly different every morning) in the courtyard; the Eliza Thompson House exceeded our expectations in every regard.The receptionists helped us with reservations, secured rides, watched for our driver and even made sure our reservation at one restaurant was held as she anticipated we might be late. Wine/cheese and the dessert/coffee times allowed a free flow of conversation among participants. We were in a lovely decorated bedroom at the front of the house near reception looking onto the street.  This room was wonderful for us..spacious with a sparkling clean bathroom. I'm already looking forward to returning to the Eliza Thompson House."  --November 18, 2013

y wife and I loved everything about Eliza Thompson, The rooms had great old character and the folks that run this small hotel were very warm and helpful. The highlight was the lovely garden with fountain that was wonderful for enjoying complementary wine and snacks in the evening and breakfast buffet in the morning. A great location just a couple blocks from Forsyth Park in an area with many old mansions and green squares, a bit away from the rowdier tourist scene near the river.  "  --October 26, 2013

"We were met at the door by Brendon who greeted us by name! Took our luggage to our Courtyard room and then put a slip ($12) in our car so we could have our car stay put for 2 days and ignore the pkg meter. Our room opened onto the Courtyard with a beautiful water fountain( loved the sound of water) . A hearty buffet breakfast was served in the courtyard, wine and "tapas" served in the parlor from 5:30-7 and dessert from 8:30-10. Bedroom was well appointed although it had a very small bathroom. But that was fine with us. Robes and turn down were a nice touch.  We walked everywhere. Especially beautiful at nite! We would definitely stay at The Eliza Thompson House again!"  --October 16, 2013

"We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Don't bother buying a trolley pass, you can walk everywhere from the front door faster than waiting for a trolley. The staff was very nice. We had a courtyard room. I would have loved to see the rooms in the main house, but they were all occupied.  We really enjoyed the wine and cheese time. We met people from Canada, Oregon, and Scotland. It was really relaxing sitting around with them having wine in the afternoons. After we met the first day, we all gathered each day to share our events with each other. Our room was very pretty. Climbing up to the bed was no problem at all. It was the perfect blend of privacy and b&b friendly."  --October 7, 2013

"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Eliza Thompson House. The staff was every welcoming and friendly. Erin and the two bellman took good care of us! The innkeeper was friendly and personable. We found the location was superb, quiet and centrally located. We were a short walk from all the city has to offer and we felt we picked the best location possible.
Our room was spacious and bright, we stayed in Eliza's master bedroom. It's the J.Stephen room with a lovely lace canopy bed, separate sitting area and lovely views of the courtyard and of jones street. The fireplace was non-working but added a nice touch in this lovely well cared for home. We loved the courtyard and being able to mingle with other guests. Beats the big box hotels any day!"  --October 1, 2013
