Relive the golden years of American motels at Savannah's colorful Thunderbird Inn

            Visiting Savannah, Georgia, is a trip back in time — but most people think at least 100 years or so. Here’s an historic attraction that will make Baby Boomers swoon.
            The Thunderbird Inn in Savannah, Georgia, is a renovation of the popular motels of the 1960s. It was built in 1964 at what owners call “the intersection of ‘Yes, ma’am’ and ‘Dude!’”
            To add a little more fun to the retro motel experience, for breakfast the Thunderbird serves Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the lobby and places Moon Pies on your pillow. The Super King Room even has Magic Fingers, where a quarter in the slot makes your bed come alive. You can see why it was named to the Top 10 Retro Hotels in the US by USA Today.
            To celebrate the motel’s 50th birthday, the Thunderbird will be offering 50 percent off rooms every day in August and December throughout 2014 and Sundays through Thursdays from September through November, 2014. Prices are reasonable to begin with so this makes the time travel even more attractive. Use the promo code “50TH” when making reservations.
            There’s even a 50 percent off the dog deposit.
