A charming inn in a charming area of a charming city. The place is infused with antebellum quaintness. Our room, Mary Musgrove (all the rooms have names rather than numbers) was very pretty and the bed delightfully comfortable. The staff are remarkably helpful and friendly.
This is an inn, not a large hotel, so there is a certain degree of intimacy with other guests. Nevertheless, we heard no sound at all from adjoining rooms.
The included breakfast was wonderful. Complimentary tea and sandwiches are served in the afternoon, and sherry is available after dinner.
The Inn is located in Savannah's historical area, close to picturesque streets lined with huge, ancient trees dripping Spanish moss, lovely squares, shopping, restaurants, and the riverfront. The Inn itself is part of the area's charm.
The only potential downside is the scarcity of parking behind the inn. I can't fault the Ballastone for this, given the Inn's location, but guests considering a stay here should be aware that street parking may be required (passes are available from the hotel). There is a bus loading area right in front of the Inn; we were able to park there (illegally, but apparently everyone parks there temporarily without repercussion) while we checked in.
