What a beautiful place to stay! The staff were all so friendly and welcoming - they gave us parking space, found a safe place to store our bicycles, gave us restaurant recommendations and answered all of our questions. The rooms were really beautiful, as were the bathrooms. We spent a lovely evening the bar which has a lovely friendly atmosphere. The location of the inn is fab too - within walking distance of many great restaurants and the beautiful river. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

When you experience something great you want to share it with everyone! My husband and I stayed for a romantic getaway at The Ballastone Inn. The Ballastone was decked out for the holidays! Everything was picture perfect, and was so festive and magical! It really put you in he holiday spirit! The high tea was delightful. The staff was so attentive to addressing all our needs. Jennifer Salandi, the owner does a fabulous job of making all her guests feel right at home! Cheers to Jennifer and her superb staff! I can see why your inn is one of the most sought after places to stay in Savannah! I will definitely recommended The Ballastone to all my friends, patients, and family! The Ballastone is a class act!

I had a wonderful time. The staff makes this place shine and it's number one for this reason alone. The rooms were beautiful and well appointed. The arrangements the staff made for outside the Inn activities were great. I will be back. If you have questions, just ask. The place was wonderful and I'd recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: Any room would be wonderful. I choose one with a fire place and larger bathroom. it was a good cho...

Words cannot express the time that we had at the Ballastone Inn. From the minute we walked thru the door upon arrival to walking out the door for departure we were treated unlike another customer, but like a part of their family. This is the perfect place to have a romantic getaway or like us a wedding/hooneymoon. The staff was quick to help us in anyway we needed, we loved each and everyone of them! If you go during Christmas time, the house is breathtaking with beautifully decorated mantels and stair case. The rooms are kept clean and smelling good and the high beds were so comfortable. The food was excellent from breakfast to the afternoon tea and the evening horsdoeuvres. We enjoyed the turndown in the evening with the mints left on our pillow. The home is located within walking distance of every thing you would like to see and do. Thank you Ballastone! We will forever remember each and everyone of you. See you next year!

Room Tip: Staying in the back of the house on the second floor allowed us to listen to the Church Bells chimin...

We've tried several places to stay in the Savannah area and were extremely pleased to find The Ballastone's excellent staff, service, food AND decor as absolutely the best of the best. Add their extremely competitive prices for a huge bonus to a delightful find!

Until you share this experience, you haven't experienced the best of Savannah! ENJOY!

Room Tip: We were fortunate enough to see several of the suites and they ALL were gorgeous!

We are now staying in the Gazebo room -- spacious with fireplace and sitting area on 2nd floor. The room is beautiful and the super-lux linens on the bed made for a wonderful sleep. Also loved the 4 large soft down pillows. We were a short walk from the shopping street of Broughton. And also had a nice dinner at Alligator Soul right around the corner on Barnard near Broughton. Our bikes were stored by the Inn and we plan a nice day of sightseeing. Breakfast will be French Toast with sausages. A breakfast dining choice of three options was in our room last night. Also you may pick the location where you want to sit. Yesterday around 4PM was Tea Hour in a Drawing Room. The lemon bars and scones were delicious. We were not around for appetizer hour in the bar area around 7PM but plan on trying it tonight. You cannot beat the location and fine Inn if you want to pamper yourselves in Savannah.

Room Tip: Look on-line an choose the room of your liking.

From the moment we arrived, we were treated royally. We came in just before 8 AM, hoping to just leave our bags, as we knew check-in was late afternoon; we were given breakfast, and, before we finished, were told that our room was being readied. The breakfasts were delicious, as was the afternoon tea. Everyone we met from the staff were ready to do whatever it took to provide us with information, directions, etc. Should we visit Savannah again, this will be the only place to stay.
