About Owner/Property Manager

My wife and I first came to Savannah in 2005. We sold a small rental home we owned in Peachtree City, GA and decided to re-invest in a rental home along the eastern coast. The search was on and it started in Savannah and we worked our way up past Charleston. At the end of the search we came to the realization that we love the look the feel and the general laid back vibe of Savannah.

In general I would say that our top ten reasons of why we love Savannah are below:

10) The low country waterways and the smell of the marsh

9) The proximity to the ocean and all the tributaries

8) Fishing and time on the water

7) The Downtown and all the parks

6) The history of Savannah

5) The hauntings and the stories/myths that lie behind the fables

4) Traveler drinks – Solo cups and alcoholic beverages can be taken for a stroll anywhere in the downtown vicinity

3) SCAD – the fact that the whole downtown also is vibrant with students

2) The Pubs and Bars

1) The many fabulous restaurants

We hope you enjoy your stay in Savannah as much as we enjoy everything that it has to offer.

Each unit offers a full kitchen and a salon for hanging with friends. As much as you will enjoy the amenities offered within Oglethorpe Lodge you truly appreciate your location.

Central location!

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were above expectations. The exterior of the building was impeccably maintained. Reserved parking spot was right outside the entry courtyard. The third floor (top) apartment was roomy and comfortably appointed. Very clean. We toured the city on foot and felt the location could not have been more perfect. One block in from historic River Street. The property manager was easy to communicate with and the price was certainly right! I would highly recommend staying here when visiting Savannah.

Oglethorpe Lodge

  • 5 of 5

This place, to me, is the best kept hotel "secret" in Savannah! Location is hands down the best! This was our first stay at Oglethorpe Lodge. It definitely won't be our last!

Great Location, Great Room!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in June and loved it. The location is right in the heart of Savannah. You are so close to restaurants, shops, and history that you never have to worry about running out of things to do. We enjoyed having a cup of coffee in the morning either in the courtyard or the living room and planning our day. The kitchen in the room is great for making meals and it is nice to have the refrigerator to store some leftovers.

We loved our stay here and are looking forward to coming back during or next trip to Savannah!

The best deal in town!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights, 3/24 - 3/27/2013, in your one bedroom suite. Having stayed at numerous hotels in Savannah over many years we were not sure what to expect at Oglethorpe Lodge. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations! The suite is huge - all rooms are oversized with high ceilings. The bed was quite comfortable and the kitchen was completely equipped, even coffee was supplied. I think our favorite feature is the inclusion of an extra half bath - extremely rare in a one bedroom unit but much appreciated.

In recent years we always felt it necessary to request hotel rooms away from Bay Street as the traffic noise is disturbing day and night - it is still a main thoroughfare for many large trucks. The inclusion of an extra layer of glass and the presence of heavy drapes makes the outside noise almost inaudible.

We will definitely plan our next trip around the availability calendar for this unit and we have already told several friends and family members to seriously consider it when going to Savannah.

Stayed St Patty's Day Weekend. Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Oglethorpe Lodge the Weekend of St Patrick's Day. Great location on the parade route. We stayed in the top floor suite and it was a great space. Full kitchen, living room, 1 bedroom and 1-1/2 baths. Plenty of room for my wife and myself. The rooms were exceptionally clean and very nice. We could walk to everything and spent the whole weekend exploring Savannah and enjoying the parade on the big day. When we return to Savannah we would definitely stay at the Lodge again.

Under new ownership. It used to be owned by Holiday Inn Express.
