I was lucky enough to be able to accompany my husband on his business stay at the Ballastone Inn for three nights this week. Simply put, the stay was delightful. The staff was so helpful and accommodating, the food was delicious, the room was comfortable and secluded, and we absolutely couldn't have asked for more. The thing I noticed the... More

This was our first trip to Savannah from NJ and we were so excited and to put it simply the Ballastone Inn did not disappoint. It is in a great location, is a beautiful bed and breakfast and the food of which there is plenty is terrific. They serve a full breakfast, afternoon tea and snacks and evening hor devours... More

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Ballastone, It is everything they say it is and more. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We stayed in the China Trader suite, It was large, well appointed and spotless, my wife commented on the high quality of the bedding. Breakfast was traditional southern fare, perfectly prepared and graciously served.... More

We stayed @ The Ballastone many years ago for an overnight on our way to Hilton Head. The experience never left me, and we finally came back for a 5 day stay to celebrate my husband's birthday. Everything was as I remembered, and so much more. The staff is fantastic - Melissa, Libby and Bailey met every question and request... More

From check-in to leaving, service like we rarely have received! Local trips, appetizers, Hor dourves, antique ambience, gourmet breakfast, extremely pleasing personal service and much more makes this a truly memorable visit. We can't recommend the Ballastone any higher!

Staying at the Ballastone Inn was like stepping into the past. We felt like we were part of the family that previously owned the home. Our extended family met in Savannah to celebrate our father's 80th Birthday, so feeling as if we were in a beautiful home together was a far more intimate and lovely way to be together than... More

We spent 3 nights at the Ballastone last month and really enjoyed our stay. Its a quaint and cozy Inn with excellent service. Melissa was warm, welcoming and very accommodating during our entire stay. We stayed in the Teal Olive room which was clean, comfortable and just lovely. Only downside is that this room is located on the main floor... More

Perfect location? Check. Walk everywhere, never touch your car. Perfect Savannah ambience? Check. Lovely antiques, and each room decorated differently and with a descriptive name to differentiate. Afternoon social time to rest those weary feet and regroup for evening? Check, beautifully presented with silver, porcelain and crystal. Comfortable rooms retaining their historic elements but offering modern comfort? Check - great... More

Excellent home base for exploring historic Savannah on foot! The room was very clean; bedding and towels were luxurious. Breakfast was good although options are limited (which was fine for my husband and I as we don't have restrictive diets). Staff was very friendly and always welcomed us back after our long days exploring.
