Our trip to the Ballastone Inn was the most welcoming vacations we've ever experienced. Melissa and the staff made us feel like family. The Inn was warm and comfortable. We loved the detail and uniqueness that was given to each room. My favorite experience was Monday morning. I came downstairs to get some coffee. The lobby, tea and dining room... More

Of all the places we have stayed in Savannah, and my wife and I were both born and raised there, the Ballastone Inn is definitely the very best. The staff, service, and comfort are complemented by the Ballastone's charm and superior location.

This hotel offers a fabulous experience , in an old fashioned setting. Each room is different , we had "Scarlett's Retreat " for my husband and I, and our grown up children shared the Twin room "Savannah" Although we went as a family , I think the hotel is more for couples, very romantic and relaxing. The hotel staff were... More

This is a wonderful old mansion oozing Savannah charm. Location is a quick walk to anything you'd need. We stayed in the "Savannah" room with two beds, ground floor, and it was great. Staff was very friendly and lived up to its gracious reputation. Afternoon tea and evening drinks were a plus. Tasty breakfast served in the building or the... More

I recently spent two days relaxing at the Ballastone. It's my go-to place to be pampered in a beautiful B & B. The food is delicious, afternoon tea is very special with yummy pastries and tea choices.The evening hors d'oeuvres with wine in the bar is a great way to end the day. The staff is helpful and friendly, and... More

We stayed at the Ballastone Inn during a recent trip to Savannah. I chose the Ballastone based on another trip advisor post and was not disappointed! The House is amazing, only to be surpassed by the service you receive from the Ballastone staff. They are the most cordial and professional staff I have ever experienced. They always greet you with... More

Very nice friendly place nicest rooms face the courtyard and are beautifully decorated with fireplaces. The manager was very helpful and made our stay very relaxing as was the rest of the staff. Great breakfast in a beautiful setting. We are coming back soon.

We hesitated staying at a B&B due to the stories of shared baths, and other fables. Ballastone has 16 different style rooms--most in colonial style, with antique furniture--AND PRIVATE BATHROOMS. All rooms have TV also. Every morning there is a breakfast served either inside or out side on a patio at your own private table. My wife and I chose... More

I had a wonderful time in Savannah and the Ballastone Inn made my stay even lovelier. The staff pays attention to the details and aims to pamper you. Rooms are clean and are unique from one another. I loved being able to peak into vacant rooms to see how they look like so I can compare and get an idea... More

I've stayed in the Palmetto Fan and Mary Musgrave rooms and have seen others. They are all beautiful but I think esp Palmetto Fan in the winter with lovely fireplace and beautiful bathroom. The breakfasts are quite delicious as is afternoon tea and wine later in the evening. Very like being in a private elegant southern home. There is free... More
