Great late February weekend in Savannah and the Ballastone Inn. The inn is in a great location in Savannah's historic area within walking distance of just about everything. The staff was great, personable, extremely friendly, very helpful and always available. Will stay at the inn the next time we are in Savannah.

Amazing weekend at the Ballastone!! Lived up to all expectations! Staff is superb...very clean...all the small details you come to expect in a B&B. We stayed in the Hannah room which was on the courtyard level, windows looking out onto courtyard and you could faintly hear the fountain and birds in the morning :) very cozy room with fireplace and chandelier over the bed, not as large as other suited but perfect for two for a quick weekend getaway. Only reason 4/5 stars were given is that we could hear staff on one morning as the courtyard rooms are in the same level as the kitchen and laundry areas. Nothing that woke us up just a reminder you are in a home with others nearby :) breakfasts were delicious and staff was very accommodating with requests, very nice to have a a little break with a glass of wine and hors d' oeuvres after a long day of walking the town before dinner! We will definitely return to the Ballastone!

We spent two nights here in mid-January. The room and common areas were charming and comfortable. The staff was wonderful. The breakfast was lovely and delicious. They ask you to provide your breakfast choices the evening before, which is not a problem. They have tea in the afternoon, wine and cheese in the early evening, and port or sherry in the evening.

We arrived at the Inn after a disappointing stay in Orlando, where it rained almost every minute we were there, The front desk was manned by a lovely young lady who rushed out back to help us park and unload all our heavy luggage. The housekeeper scurried to change the bed arrangement from King to twins and that was in the first 5 minutes. The inn is beautifully decorated and appointed with lovely antiques, silver and china Breakfast is varied and delicious...After along day touring the beautiful presentation of tea is a much welcomed surprise. Then we're on to a tasty spread of hors d'oeuvres. Our room was immaculate and beautiful....off a lovely little garden. The staff could not be more helpful from the front desk to the daily servers and housekeepers. We were also delighted at the perfect location. The Savannah Touring trolley stops right out front, many terrific restaurants are located close by and you can walk to almost anything in the Historic District from the hotel. It rained most of the time we were in Savannah too, but we didn't care having a wonderful haven to keep us warm, dry and happy.

We went to Savannah for a long weekend celebrating our one-year wedding anniversary. We stayed three nights at this inn. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. However, we were disappointed with our stay.

I had exchanged emails with one of the concierges about a month prior to our visit. I informed the concierge that we have dietary restrictions and cannot eat meat, poultry or shellfish. I also let her know that we were celebrating out anniversary. During the course of our stay, our anniversary was not acknowledged once. Further, the chef attempted to serve my husband meat during two of the three breakfasts we ate during our stay. The first time, there was bacon on the plate and the server told is "oh just eat around it." That is unacceptable. I would expect better for a #1 ranked establishment.

On the third night of our stay, we discovered a major cleanliness issue with our room. We were upgraded immediately to a very nice suite and the staff and owner were extremely apologetic. However, the nature of the issue definitely called into question the cleanliness of the entire establishment for me. Again, the staff seemed very nice but overall we were very disappointed.

Visited Ballastone Inn for a short getaway in Savannah. Our choice was made from numerous options, based on excellent Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed – it fully lived up to the excellent rating. Our room was one of the smaller ones, but very clean and comfortable and with all the comfort conveniences. The location is very central and walking distance to all sights in the Historic District, with excellent restaurants and pubs close by. Arrival, departure and services through the day were pleasant and well-organized. The varying “Chef’s special” breakfast was a perfect way to start the day. We did partake in the afternoon tea offered, and on occasion the evening drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Our only “complaint” – being near the kitchen, the smell of pancakes, bacon or omelettes wafting though our room early in the morning!
