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.

We picked the Inn by the great website and pics. We will return because of the amazing experience we had staying there. From Melissa and Jennifer, Nathan, Libby, Kristen, Sara,Shannon, Michelle and the chefs (yes, I think we met almost the whole staff) everyone made it their job to make it a great visit. From their warm greetings to their... More

I recently stayed at the Ballastone Inn including the elopement package. I have to say that my special day was flawless! The staff was delightful and Melissa was so helpful. She went above and beyond to meet any special requests that came up even helping with arrangements for dinner. Our room was exquisite as well as the courtyard where our... More

A friend recommended the Ballastone Inn and said I would not be disappointed. He was right. When I arrived, Melissa greeted me warmly and made me feel so welcome. Everyone there was always cheerful and helpful. Every day, I looked forward to the breakfast and choosing what to have for breakfast the next day. The cinnamon rolls are awesome! My... More

We had a wonderful experience here. The rooms are lovely (though the Low Country room was probably the least attractive). Beautiful old home that has been well-maintained. Breakfasts are nice - a bit more variety and choices in the morning would be welcome, but a minor quibble. We kept missing afternoon tea but enjoyed having the appetizers and wine a... More

Parking is tight, but the Ballastone's historic location is in walking distance to the riverfront and most of the "must try" restaurants in the downtown area, as well as the squares and art museum. The breakfast is made as soon as you reach the dining area; you can eat outside or in the room. The beds are wonderful! Showers have... More
