Hamilton Turner Inn

Samuel Pugh Hamilton built this mansion for his family in 1873; it was the first Savannah home with electricity, installed in 1883. Witnesses on the inn’s staff have noted a cigar-smoking man on the roof, and have heard the unexplained sounds of billiard balls rolling on the upper floors and children laughing. The book “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” mentioned the wild parties thrown by one-time property manager Joe Odom. After many incarnations, the property was turned into an inn in 1997.

    About 12 years ago my wife and I atayed in the basement room situated to the right of the main entrance. That room had an interior as well as an exterior entrance. We were issued two keys which we immediately tested on both of our room doors. Finding them in working order, my wife put one key in her purse and I placed the other in my billfold. We used both keys on both doors several times during our stay. The main entrance door was locked for security purposes at about 10:00 pm. We returned from a late dinner to find the entrance door locked. Since we had an exterior door to our room, we attempted to use both keys to open that door. Neither key worked. Luckily, another guest returned to the bread and breakfast and allowed us to enter. We tried both keys on our interior door and again, both failed. We sought out the night clerk who viewed our2 keys and he informed us that our keys were not for our room but rather for another room in the building. He gave us 2 new keys. We attended a Jewish food festival in the park and returned with a foil wrapped brownie. I placed the brownie in the top bureau drawer and the next morning, it was gone.
