We chose to splurge a bit to celebrate a milestone anniversary as well as our first visit to Savannah, and our selection of the Ballastone turned out to be a great one that lived up to the reviews we had seen. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds and linens (the pillows, not quite so much), Southern ambience, nice breakfasts, tea, and hors... More

Beautiful historic inn!!! The whole staff was wonderful especially Grace, she was very nice and helpful! The only complaint is that it was very noisy in our first floor room because it was under the dining room. It is not a problem if you are an early riser.

The Ballastone Inn is lovely. The food wasbeautifully served and delicious. We did, however, choose a room with a fireplace. Upon arrival, the fireplace was not working. When we inquired about it, we discovered that it had been broken for two weeks. We would have appreciated knowing that in advance and an opportunity to switch rooms if possible. We also... More

A lovely bed and breakfast inn centrally located in the historic district of Savannah. Ideal for walking to the sites but also close to the trolley bus stops. Very friendly and helpful staff. All the rooms are beautifully decorated.

We have stayed at the Ballastone three times. It is a lovely place and the breakfast is nice. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The bathrooms need up dating but it is in and old house so you kind of expect an out dated bathroom. It was clean and nice though to make the old bathrooms look as nice... More

The staff was amazing. They took care of every need/request in a prompt and very friendly way. The Inn was beautiful, well maintained and clean. The breakfast each morning was excellent, allowing you a choice of time on when you wanted to be served with outdoor or indoor seating. Overall, the Inn was warm and inviting!

“It is best to go to the website and see the pictures of each room. They are all unique and all beautifully appointed. The rooms that front on Oglethorpe Avenue are somewhat noisy at night from the street noise, so if you have a white noise machine (we bring a box fan) you might want to pack that.”
