Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor, we thought this would be an excellent place to stay for our 2 day trip to Savannah. It did not disappoint. We had a lovely comfortable room overlooking the courtyard, the breakfast was excellent and the staff are simply wonderful. They recommended restaurants within walking distance and went out of their way to help... More

An absolute treasure of Savannah! Our stay was perfect in every way. The staff is what makes it so special. It is a beautiful inn, has a great location, but the staff is truly remarkable. 10 stars for every category and then some!

This was our first time to Savannah. We were so lucky to have landed at the Ballastone Inn. It was the perfect location right in the heart of the city. Easy walking distance to everything. Our room was lovely and cleaned perfectly everyday. We enjoyed talking with the staff Melissa, Nathan, Kara and Jessica. I am sure I missed someone... More

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

BallastoneInn, Manager at Ballastone Inn, responded to this review

Our goal at the Ballastone is to ensure that all guests have a flawless and unforgettable experience. Thus, it is unfortunate and disconcerting that a guest expresses any displeasure in their visit, especially well over one year after their stay. Throughout each guest's stay, the entire staff is certain to acknowledge and address any problems or concerns expressed by our... 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
