So, now that I have your attention... . Let's talk turkey. The Ballastone Inn ( BSI from this point forward) is the ONLY place to stay in Savannah. Sure, there are about a bajillion other inns and hotels but they're kra-kra average. Yes, I'm channeling my inner teen. Anyway, the service at BSI is unmatched. I have traveled around the... More

We stayed at Ballastone Inn in Sept 2014. The staff is welcoming and helpful and the décor is beautiful. The pros: The location is great for proximity to historic sites. Once parked, we walked to everything we wanted to see. Breakfast was fantastic, a hot entrée, homemade granola and other choices. The courtyard, with a fountain, is charming and a... More

We recently stayed 2 nights in the beautiful China Trade Suite. When we were checking in the front desk clerk told us that this was her favorite room in the Inn and I could see why the minute she opened the door. Tastefully decorated in wall paper with asian accents, jade accents and kimonos on the walls, this room gave... More

I stayed at the Ballastone Inn over Valentine's day 2013. The room was okay though parking was quite challenging. The location was excellent. However, the advertised tea and breakfast were quite mediocre. This wouldn't be an issue but given the price of a night's stay at the Ballastone, I expected much better. Quite frankly, I didn't think the Ballastone's lived... More

The Ballastone is probably the most beautiful inn we have stayed in and th elevator is a definite plus. Fans of Victorian decor must see it - you feel you have been transported back in time. The location was perfect. Once parked, you do not need your car to see the city. The Ballastone staff is professional, yet warm and... More

This B and B is in a lovely antebellum house which as been decorated and modernised (sympathetically) to a fine degree. The decor is lovely. There is an elevator too, which seems to fit in well. Our room (401, Mulberry Tulips) was huge, well furnished and very comfortable. The bed was great - comfortable, with excellent sleep quality. Bathroom was... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The concierge who greeted us our first night, Lea, was the best! There are only 16 rooms, with great names like "Low Country," "Rhett's Retreat", "Scarborough Fair." Free Wi-Fi is great. Breakfast was delicious and one could make choices instead of a set meal. They serve high tea every afternoon, with little sandwiches... More

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
