My Husband and I stayed at Ballard's Inn on the weekend of Aug 2-4. We had stayed here previously years ago before the renovation and the difference was like night and day. We arrived on a early Ferry and they took our luggage for us and stored it right behind the Front desk as we departed for the beach. The Employees at the front desk and all Staff could not have been nicer. They gave us a ring to let us know the room was ready before actual check in at 3:00 which was most kind and appreciated. We had rented a Smart Car because we like to cruise all over the island, and are not big fans of the Mopeds or Bikes on a busy weekend, and unfortunately couldn't get our Car on the Ferry because we didn't book far enough ahead. (Like a year would be a good idea for a weekend.) The car was pricey but wonderful for parking, as we fit everywhere we went.. Our room was the Deluxe with 2 Queen beds, spacious with a huge shower and a good size balcony overlooking the Harbor and Water St. The AC was ice cold, the room attractive, clean and fresh and the Wifi and TV worked perfectly. Huge upgrade from previous stay. The Bar downstairs is of course a bit loud and there is a lot of partying that goes on all day and night. Surprisingly, it never disturbed us in our room at all. Its wonderful to stay right there and walk down to the beach, live music all day, a bit crowded but loads of fun. We also love going to the Town Beach where you can rent an umbrella and chair as well. We didn't eat here only because we like to eat at different places we've been going to for years, but the drinks were great. It isn't cheap, but the location is incredible, the beach beautiful and the Employees and Rooms were great. Highly recommend and we will return!

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay at Ballard's Inn. We always appreciate when our Guest's take the time to let us and others know about their experiences.
I am very happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay, and how the renovations we did helped in making it an even more pleasant visit than the last time you were here. We are very happy with how everything worked out.
It is amazing sometimes how you can not really hear much of the noise from the bar in the rooms. Also I am happy that you enjoyed the use of the free WIFI and Satellite television while you where here.
We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are on the island.
