Motels in Savannah

by Lisa Fritscher

Savannah, Georgia, is perhaps best known for its blend of historical significance and modern culture. The city was settled in 1733 and played important roles in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. It is said that during General Sherman’s march from Atlanta, he avoided burning Savannah because it was too beautiful to destroy. Much of the original city has been preserved, including 22 of the original 24 public squares. Lodging in Savannah can be pricey, but several motels offer quaint charm at reasonable prices. The best rates are generally found in Midtown, a largely residential area of the city near the Savannah College of Art and Design.
