“Great location, nice inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

This old inn is exactly where we wanted to be in the historic district. The tour bus stops right in front, almost everything is within walking distance, and there is convenient free parking behind for guests. Breakfast, tea, and sherry are included and served in the pretty, if over decorated, parlors. Our room (Hannah) was fine, not great - rather dark, cluttered, and we had to improvise a bedside table. The sheets were wonderful, though, and it is lovely to have the beds turned down when you return from dinner. We chose this inn because of the good TA reviews even though it is pricier than many others. I am not sure it was worth the extra $100/night, but it was very nice.

My cousin and I recently stayed at the Inn during our first stay at Savannah. The location cannot be beat!! The reception staff were extremely helpful when we inquired about restaurants, directions and sites to see. We read about the tea hour but never attended as we were either out or tired from site seeing. The room was clean, the closet small and tired looking, but functional. The only negative we had was our breakfast experience, we preferred eating out since the choices at the inn were not what we would choose. I would recommend this inn to anyone visiting since the staff is great and the location amazing.

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.

Room Tip: You can review the rooms on the website. We looked at several rooms while we were there and they wer...

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.
