It was a great location right downtown! We did have to pay for parking so check into that before-hand, but it was easy to find a spot right on the street out front.
Thanks for all the generous reviews for the past 2+ years. I wanted to take this opportunity to let future renters know that during the first week of May 2018 we removed the carpet and replaced it with hard surface flooring. The carpet was a major reason the apartment earned some less than stellar reviews. Even then, location was touted as prime! The new hardwood style tile freshens the place up significantly.
Charming, quaint, clean and peaceful enough!
I write this review with consideration to other reviews previously read and based on many visits to Savannah. Some reviews of this property mentioned dogs barking. I heard dogs bark a few times early evening. None of this was bothersome at all. Savannah is a busy, bustling city and as the evening progresses the typical street noise dies down. So, I feel it is fair when visiting a city such as Savannah to review the property based on things within control of the property managers/owners etc. The location was perfect for our purpose. I travelled with three 16 year old girls celebrating SWEET 16. They love city-life, history, shopping and eating. This location offered all of that. In some reviews I read the patrons complained of a smell. There is a smell that, in my opinion, had nothing to do with mildew as previously mentioned. Having visiting Savannah for many years, for many reasons and stayed in some of these nicest Hotels, one learns, there is a price to pay for Historical Charm, and that is a slight smell. Even The Hyatt Regency has it. Walker's Paradise is an apartment that accommodates all of the necessities inside a 200 + year old house at a very fair price. Parking was far easier than dealing with valet or a parking garage blocks away. (Just use the meter on the corner)
The place was clean. It is in a great location. Savannah can be noisy but this place is less noisy than most. I would definitely stay here again.
This is such a generous review and obviously reflective of the great time this group had in Savannah. This unit is indeed located ideally and these comments are realistic. I agree the smell is not mildew it is indeed an old house smell, some days stronger than others. The owner's dogs are two little poodles who occasionally bother guests by barking but not always.
Location amazing, everything else meh
We loved the location, and the price, which were our main motivators in booking the rental. But the unit was run down, there were bugs on the floor, lots of wierd staining on the carpets, and the bathroom was a little dumpy. There was also a musty smell the whole time we were there.
We had an uphill battle for over two years of constant tourist visitors and wall to wall white carpet in a ground level apartment. In May 2018 the carpet was removed and replaced with fresh tile that looks like hardwood. We expect the to be much easier to maintain. We are sorry that anyone had a negative experience due to the carpet.
Yapping pup and the smell of mildew will keep you up
The location was beyond awesome! But.. We left and all our clothes, luggage, etc. smell like the mildew aroma this location has. It is so strong it gave us headaches. There is also a small dog who will not stop barking. So if you want peace and quiet I would suggest against this location. We even left early and called around for a hotel. The price, the smell, and the dog are enough to make us not want to stay here again or recommend it. We spent more than half our vacation at a hotel and it was half the price of here and way better accommodations.
we arrived Friday afternoon, 5:15 or so, the unit was "stuffy" at best. We turned on the AC & left for dinner. Upon return from dinner & a walk, the unit was still running, but still stuffy & muggy, so I emailed the manager. 5 minutes later (this is NOT an exaggeration), there was a knock on the door & the maintenance people (2 of them) were there. A couple of minutes later the owner arrived. The wiring problem was corrected in less than an hour-exceptional service!! While not fancy, the unit is adequate. The location was great for us.
We enjoyed our stay in the Walker's Paradise even though we were there for less than 24 hours. As there were 2 of us a second luggage stand would have been nice instead of bringing a dinning chair into the bedroom. Bed was very comfy. Paying to park on the street was pricey & getting up early to re-feed the meter in the morning isn't always what one wants when on holiday. Of course you can pay to park in their other hotel round the corner if space is available. We met the owners briefly, they were charming & helpful. We would stay again but only if we can visit much longer next time!
This address is at the center of the Historic District. You will be surrounded by the beauty of both residential historic homes and tourist sights, historic landmarks and various restaurants, museums, pubs and shops.
