Don some Jackie O. shades. Call up your Rat Pack friends. Thunderbird Inn is back. This 1964 motor court delivers a vibrant style with prices unseen in Savannah's better accommodations for decades. The T-bird indulges visitors with friendly rates--$79 to $139--in a town where even modest hotels start at $165 and where $250 buys a small chamber in a historic home. Even better, the Thunderbird doesn't skimp on comfort.

The motor court looks as bright and colorful as the day it opened. It sits a few blocks from River Street, the City Market, and boutiques-filled Broughton Street. Although it faces the city's bus station, we felt safe walking to and from our lodging, even at night. The motel supplies plenty of parking spaces in its L-shaped lot.
