What a wonderful oasis in the heart of the historical district. You know you're in a special place when people are constantly photographing your B&B. The service is designed to make you feel very special - a gorgeous breakfast to start your day, high tea at 4, a pre-dinner snack at 6 and a glass of sherry or port awaiting... More

We stayed at the Ballastone Inn during a holiday weekend and it appeared the staff and management were apparently overwhelmed with their duties and responsibilities which was evident when they continually dropped the ball on several occasions. We made several requests for non-down pillows which fell on deaf ears. We asked for staff to secure reservations for us at a... More

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Ballastone Inn in Savannah. We stayed in Scarlett's Retreat. The room was large and well appointed. This was our first time in Savannah and we were glad to have stayed at the Ballastone because everything was in walking distance of the inn. The staff was very friendly and took care of our... More

Everything was terrific except for a few minor things. We felt there should be more light provided in the China Trade room that we stayed in. Also we feel the rooom could have used a thorough cleaning. The corners in the bath room has dust in the corners. Also the two large vases in on either side of the t.v.... More

Several college friends met me here for 3 nights. We felt like the princesses that we happen to be. This Inn continually upgrades, which is hard to believe because it always seems perfect to me. My friends and I luxuriated in the parlor for high tea, had a delightful made to order breakfast served to us in the lovely garden... More

This is a great B&B, brilliantly located in the old part of Savannah. We had a very large and comfortable corner room ("Scarborough Fair"). Breakfast, tea, etc. were all good. The service was friendly and excellent. My only advice would be not to go to Savannah on St. Patrick's Day!

Our experience at the Ballastone Inn was wonderful. We were travelling 3 weeks on the road, and we had a lot of luggage so we needed a larger room and booked the Scarlett's Retreat. We were very happy with our room, it was spacious and comfortable. The cleanliness of the bathroom was average, but the bedroom and suite area were... More

If we had only stayed in our first room (Scarborough) this rating would have been much higher but our experience in the second room (Low Country) tainted our experience. We could only stay two nights in the better room due to availability but had asked the innkeepers to upgrade us from the Low Country Room should anything open up. Scarborough... More

Using the number rating system was very difficult for this hotel because the quality if the accommodations greatly depended on what room you are in. We checked in on a Thursday afternoon in the rain and tried calling the Inn from outside the front door as we didn't know where to park our car but no one answered the phone... More

Our room (Mulberry Tulips) was beautiful; we especially loved the huge bed and fireplace. The entire property is lovely and charming! We enjoyed tea in the afternoon and our breakfast was perfect. Also in a terrific location. We will definitely return!
