Don't wait too long to make your reservations. It'sgraduation time and the hotels fill up fast. You may wish to stay close to the Grimes' home at the i95 Gateway exit or near the Farmers off i95-Hwy 80 or the airport exit. All these exits have several choices. There's LaQuinta, Comfort Suites, and Holiday Inn. Choose your favorite and you won't go wrong.
Then again, you may want to be near the church (Oglethorp Mall, Abercorn Street, or Stevenson Ave.). The same hotels can be found there.
What about considering a Bed and Breakfast? There are some beautiful B&B's in the historic district of Savannah which is not far from the church. And you will enjoy all the beauty of Live lak trees and beautiful parks. For a cheaper B&B, check out airbnb.com.
And of course, there is always the option of the beach. Take a few extra days for a nice vacation. Our wedding is on the last week before summer rates kick in. Rent beach house or even a campground on Tybee Island. (cabins and RV hookups)
