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

This was my third time staying at the Ballastone. It is always a special treat. My daughter is a student at SCAD, so when I am traveling to drop her off to begin her school year or for a visit, staying at the Ballastone is not only convenient (heart of historic Savannah), but also welcoming and indulgent. The staff is... More

We stayed for a long weekend and really enjoyed this antique mansion. The rooms are beautiful, the staff does not know how to say no, and the breakfasts were wonderful. Walking distance to the riverfront and restaurants/bars.

The 4th floor Gazebo Suite was large, comfortable, lovely furnishings, nice bathroom area with a separate wet bar, and a pretty view of the courtyard. Walk the stairs... More

This is a beautifully furnished and maintained B&B. The breakfasts were delicious and exceptionally well prepared. Afternoon tea was graciously served with wonderful goodies. The pampering is non stop as delightful early evening hors d'oeuvres followed tea. Our room, the Victoria Suite, was spectacularly appointed with priceless antiques and a lovely comfortable king size bed. The linens, duvet comforter and... More
