Room was in the basement, next to the kitchen. I was never told that when I called to make reservation. In the morning the noise of pots and pans and loud conversation along with the smell of bacon and eggs was intolerable. The bathroom was dirty - hair all over the toilet. Would not return. We stayed at another B...

The Ballastone is a beautiful Inn perfectly located within walking distance to all of historic downtown. Very safe and clean area and an absolutely beautiful building. I would highly recommend staying there and I look forward to staying there on our next Savannah adventure.

I loved this place. I especially loved the Afternoon Tea, which was delicious. The inn is gorgeous. My room was Palmetto Fan which is located on the floor above reception level, at the top of the stairs. It is a lovely room. Note: Several reviews commented on street noise. My experience was that sometimes you hear sirens - the sirens...

Ballastone is a beautiful property in a great location. The accommodations were very comfortable and quiet; however, the breakfast was skimpy and, because we had the last reservation time one day, the buffet was almost empty.

This is in the perfect location to visit Savannah. Everything in the historical area is walkable. Food is great and the people are friendly. The only drawback is parking which may or may not be a problem. It depends on how busy it is when you are there.

We stayed with Ballastone for 4 nights, 3 in Hannah and 1 in Low Country. We liked both rooms very much; they are both on the lower level but there is an elevator if stairs are a concern. The Inn is immaculately maintained, furnished with great attention to detail. Not fussy - elegant and comfortable at the same time. It's...

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway with two of my girlfriends at the Ballastone Inn. I've been to Savannah before, but this place exceeded my expectations and had me booking another stay for my husband and I in a couple months when I left. The ambience is utterly breathtaking and the staff continuously goes above and beyond to...

For my 70th B'day we went to Savannah for the first time and stayed at the Ballastone which turned out to far exceed any expectations we had. Every moment was a gracious pleasure. One example of the attention to care at the Ballastone beyond the extravagantly delicious food was the appearance of a small rubber duck for the bath tub...

The Ballastone on our second visit after several years was as beautiful as ever. The staff is wonderful and cater to your every need. Rooms are old world and elegant. Breakfast was delicious and high tea was a real treat. Location is perfect. I can't wait to go back.
