Excellent staff. Great location. We stayed for three nights in the Mulberry Tulips room, which was big, comfortable and well appointed. It is a grand old building. The breakfast was adequate but nothing special. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Parking is a bit of a challenge. If you plan to get around by car buy a parking sticker from the con...

If you really want to experience old southern hospitality, the Ballastone is the place to stay. This historic inn furnished with victorian antiques and decor gives you a glimpse of the romance of antebellum Savannah. A magical hotel in a magical city!

This was our second stay at the Ballastone, and it was even better than the first. We stayed in the Victoria Suite - expensive but worth it. Beautifully decorated, spacious, amazingly comfortable bed, and right next to the bar and lounge, which is both convenient but also quiet - they go to bed early here by European standards.

The breakfast is simply outstanding, the best blueberry pancakes I have ever tasted. Melissa the Operations Manager is incredibly sweet and helpful, and gives very good recommendations for restaurants. You can walk everywhere from the Ballastone, you are right in the middle of the historic district, ten minutes from the river in one direction and ten minutes from Forsyth Park in the other. If you wake up early take a walk or run in Forsyth Park, this being Savannah all the locals will say hello.

When you arrive, a trolley trip is the best way to get orientated. If you want a terrific dinner, try local1110, and order the steak. And do take time to just sit in a square with a book - this is the essence of Savannah.

Great position I the city, fabulous ambience and decor, very helpful staff, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, tea & hors d'heurves and a nice touch to be able to finish with a complimentary glass of port or sherry. Really enjoyed our 1 night stay, hope to be back for longer next time.

We had a great time in Savannah celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. The Ballastone Inn was everything that we hoped that it would be. Our spacious and romantic room was very comfortable and we had a great view of the courtyard. The staff was very friendly and accommodating at all times. The breakfast was exceptionally good as well as the tea and snacks. Each time we walked in the front door it felt like home. Location is perfect for walking anywhere in the historic area so we never needed to move our car. We will definitely return again to Savannah and the beautiful Ballastone Inn.

Room Tip: We made a great choice with the Victoria room. Even though the Inn has an elevator we liked being on...

our 1st time in Savannah, chose the Ballastone based on tripadviser reviews, and all we can say is the high rating is well deserved. Able to park the rental, and walked everywhere. Great location, great property, and truly pleasant and helpful staff. Breakfast , afternoon tea, and evening snacks were perfect reasons to come and go. Again, thanks to everyone there for helping make our three days in this lovely and interesting city memorable . You can trust the reviews completely.

Room Tip: we booked the Mary Musgrove room, and we were upgraded to the Palmetto Fan room. Melissa let us loo...

The room was beautiful and very comfortable. The service from staff was exceptional. Breakfast in the courtyard was delicious...asparagus and eggs in a basket and roasted potatoes. We will definitely return for another stay.
