Stayed in the Oglethorpe room, very nice! Antique fixtures, beautiful craftsmanship throughly the home. Guest services were great, the staff is very personable and helps with your every need. My wife and I also stayed at the Gastonian, the friendliness of Ballastone is much better.

We recently stayed at the Ballastone Inn for two nights. After reading many of the previous reviews, I had high expectations. However, I must say that I was a little disappointed. Some good things--the Inn is very clean, beautifully decorated, and conveniently located in the heart of the historic district so you can park your car and walk everywhere. The... More

The Ballastone Inn is absolutely incredible. Not only are the accommodations, rooms, décor, food and beverages top notch but the service and staff are impeccable. Melissa, the manager, is so attentive and ensures all guests needs are taken care of. One small occurrence which spoke volumes to me was the fact that when I was craving some fresh coffee in...

This is my new favorite place to stay in Savannah! The inn is beautiful, the breakfasts were great, and the staff could not have been nicer or more professional. We were pampered all weekend. The location is perfect, too. I can't wait to return!

Everything about our stay at the Ballastone was first-rate. The staff provided excellent service from booking to checkout. Rooms are large and comfortable, but be forewarned that the beds are tall, and require a step (provided) to get into. Rooms and hallways are decorated with historic paintings, illustrations, and documents, many related to Savannah's role in the Civil War. The... More

Perfect place to stay -- right in the historic district next to Juliette Gordon Low's birthplace. All of the historic district was an easy walk away. The personnel were friendly and welcoming from the time I checked in until I left. & all of the food! Delicious breakfasts, afternoon tea with snacks, evening hors d'oeuvres.
