This luxurious inn provided warm and friendly service in a beautifully restored yet modern 19th century home in the center of the Savannah historic district. Within walking distance of all corners of this largest historic district, the Ballastone provided a perfect home base for exploration. Of special note was complementary afternoon tea, served with home made delicacies, like scones with... More

We enjoyed The Ballastone very much and would recommend it to anyone who would rather be in a historic old home than a larger hotel. The Ballastone has 16 rooms which is larger than most B & B's we have stayed in. Pros: 1. Parking lot in back will hold 8 or 9 cars; they are very accommodating about moving... More

It truly felt like home away from home. Extremely clean and comfortable rooms/bathrooms. We loved the Girls Getaway package. It included high tea each afternoon at 4pm, a facial for each of us at a nearby spa, trolley tickets for a lovely historic tour of Savannah, theater tickets for 4, and $100 credit for our dinner one night. ($100 for... More

If you are travelling to Savannah and want to know where to stay...look no further. The Ballastone and their staff are incomparable. Their attention to detail and friendly attitude set the tone for a fabulous trip. The Inn is located centrally, the breakfasts wonderful, and the beds SOOO comfortable. We will be back!

This is our second stay and it won'y be the last. This time we are here with our travel group that vacations all over the world and picked Savannah for a quick long weekend mini trip. My wife and another from our group arrived early and the staff gladly welcomed us and stored our bags until we could get into... More

We booked this Inn based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. Our experience didn't live up to the reviews. First, parking is a problem. This Inn only has 7-8 parking spaces in the back and some are tandem which wasn't an issue since they were full and we had to find street parking for our 3 day stay. When we... More

After meeting with my senior staff, Melissa (13 years) and our housekeeping supervisor, Michelle (10 years) and Jackie your housekeeper (10 years) I wanted to respond to you. Jessica who welcomed you, carried your bags in, and checked you in late in the afternoon. At that time, you did not have to buy a parking pass. She explained that by... More

Just came back from a wonderful three day in beautiful Savannah, staying at the gorgeous Ballastone Inn. From the moment we arrived at 1am as we drove from Atlanta, we were met with smiling, happy faces which continued our entire stay.We stayed in Scarlett's retreat which is cosy, quaint and romantic with the softest sheets imaginable!

We enjoyed all the special touches, like turn down service, tea time, and the decor of the mansion was outstanding. All the staff were very special, communicating with you and making sure your every need was met. As someone who is confined to a walker, I was pleasantly surprised at the ease in which I was able to move around... More
