The property is lovely, the breakfast very good, all food offerings delightful, linens are exquisite. Staff is top notch, and all go the extra step to make it all about you. The Inn's location couldn't be better situated in the historic district. The decor is historically appropriate, but could use some contemporary updating in the bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay...

Very pleasant visit to Savannah. First time in the city and everyone at Ballastone was incredibly helpful in giving suggestions and making calls. The Inn was delightful! Wonderful breakfasts, fabulous pastries and tea in the afternoon and port that was excellent. Would have liked to have a Gluten Free option for the afternoon tea but for breakfast they went out...

Great experience. Afternoon tea and breakfasts were excellent. Great central location with comfortable room. Very quiet and restful time. Staff was attentive and friendly. This is one of our favorite destinations and the Ballastone Inn made it better.

I got engaged here in August 2008. Best place I ever stayed in the USA. 24 concierge, great advice on where to go, lovely room, friendly staff. Very romantic. Everything is about 1 mile away so good walking distance. It was a while ago and I think the place was closed at some point between now and then. So I...

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.

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.

“WE were on the top floor so all was quiet during the night. They are near a firestation so there may be a time or two that you could hear sirens but not much you can do about that in the city.”

“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.”
