We love Ballastone. Have stayed here before. It is exceptionally beautiful and well taken care of. All the rooms are gorgeous. The inn keepers are amazing! Derek went way out of his way to make us feel at home and made sure we had everything we needed Extrmely warm, charming and friendly. Made us feel great. As well as Christine Shes a gem. They both did so well. It makes a difference. They did not have the usual amazing breakfast right now due to Covid 19 restrictions so we ate out. Their prices have been lowered for that reason. The location is perfect. In historic homes area...but walk not far and can be in all the River Street attraction because Ballastone is not too far back. Love this place. Can't wait to return.

Thank you so much for the compliments we appreciate everyone of them. Derek is wonderful, Jim and we now have Christine who helps us out in the am. We have had to make changes and are not offering breakfast and tea but please check out our new pricing it makes a big difference in the times we are in. Our guests so much appreciate the new prices. And we have reappointed some of our rooms, refreshed some paint, so spend a minute to look around our new photos. Thanks again Jennifer Derek Jim and Christine

Very, very nice property. Excellent location within easy walking distance to several of the squares, coffee shops, downtown shopping and places to eat. Derek was an excellent source of information, directions and recommendations. The B&B had only recently reopened and with an eye still on keeping everything as safe as possible, breakfast wasn't offered and neither was the afternoon tea, which was semi-disappointing but understandable. Muffins & scones were available which we truly enjoyed with piping hot coffee. Our room was spacious and clean. Beyond the beauty of the property, the #1 advantage of The Ballastone Inn is its location. Easy walking distance to parks, squares & downtown. Would highly recommend, and would give it an extra "star" if the breakfast & afternoon tea would return.

Dear valued guest, Thank you so much for this lovely review. It warms our heart to know that we have the most wonderful guest that come to Savannah and choose to stay at The Ballastone. We also want to extend a thank you for your understanding about certain amenities that as of now we no longer carry. We want our guest to come and enjoy and we want to keep our guest safe and that means responding to Covid-19 protocols and our halt of food service related amenities. We would love to have you back to come enjoy our lovely accommodations over and over again. Thank you, Jim, Senior Concierge The Ballastone

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary weekend here. Absolutely beautiful building in the historic district. 16 rooms, all different (you pick your room when you make your reservation). Beautiful neighborhood location and located within a walk of everywhere we wanted to see and visit. Jim, the manager during our stay, is incredibly friendly and welcoming. Public spaces are intimate and special. We especially enjoyed the drink we had one late afternoon in their courtyard. My wife and I can not recommend Ballastone highly enough!! Thank you for helping make our anniversary weekend special!!!

First stayed at the Ballastone many years ago and thought it was delightful. I am happy to say it still is. This is a great location for exploring Savannah. All the employees are extremely helpful. The rooms are all wonderful.

Its has been almost 20 years now and it is so important to constantly upgrade in every way. We had had to make some changes due to this climate we are in, but nothing takes away from the beautiful setting of Ballastone. Adding great concierges, Jim and Derek, and we are ready and set for your next visit! Jennifer

Delightful place, plenty of character and charm. Derrick, Jim and Eva are excellent hosts who put an emphasis on details and making sure you are well taken care of. Outstanding Field company coffee greeted us in the morning. We enjoyed our weekend stay and are looking forward to going back.

Thank you for taking the time to review; Ballastone, all reviews are important to us. We also have our common Keurig with lots of possibilities in the am. I think we have the best concierges in the city! Sounds like you agree. Jennifer
