Every time we have stayed in this delightful, welcoming Bed and Breakfast, we have experienced an authentic, thoughtful staff and management. The 31 rooms are also unique and aesthetic, making the guests want to explore. The gardens and decks give open space and a place to enjoy company or do some private reading. The breakfasts, teas, and milk and cookies at night are "lagniappe." Best of all are the people who make the place inviting. Dr. Jack Miller
My wife and had been wanting to stay at 17 hundred 90 for a long time and it was everything we were hoping for. The staff was amazing, the in house restaurant as well. We booked room 204 simply because it is anna's room one of the spirits said to haunt the inn. She don't not dissapoint as we had some interesting but not frightening experiences. We can't wait to go back and highly recommend this wonderful inn and it's rich history.
We snuck away after a snow storm to get married and the Foley House was a huge part of our magical, wonderful, romantic experience. An absolutely fabulous place with a great location, staff and ambience for anyone looking to spend some quality time with a loved one. Especially if you are looking to elope, re-commit or just get away. Wonderful place!
While visiting Savannah, we chose a stay at Planters Inn and weren't disappointed. Lovely rooms, wine and cheese in the evening, an ample breakfast, and friendly staff. We would not hesitate to stay again. There is some traffic noise, but nothing our sound machine couldn't cover. Lots to do nearby!
We were using Savannah as a stop en route to and from NC and FL. This was a great place to stay in a traditional B&B, but had the additional advantage of welcoming our collie! From the dog bowls to the dog bone treat to the Joan's on Jones bandana, it was clear they didn't just tolerate dogs, but welcomed them! And when the snowstorm dumped over a foot of snow in the NC mountains, they were able to accommodate an extra night--a blessing because the room was more of a spacious apartment, and a great place to hole up in bad weather! We will definitely return!
Brought my dog with me and enjoyed a long weekend at The Galloway House. The room was very cozy and the owners were very helpful. They mentioned great places to visit and where to eat. It was very relaxing and exactly what I needed.
I booked reservations at the Ballastone Inn on October 14, 2015, for a five night stay in early January, 2016. The occasion was our thirty-ninth anniversary. We paid one night's deposit of $293.15. I was informed of a policy of no refund. Unfortunately, on January 4, 2016, I was diagnosed with a detached retina and had emergency surgery on January 5. My doctor prohibited any travel - particularly airline travel - for ten weeks. On January 4, I advised my travel agent that I would have to cancel my reservations at the Ballastone Inn (almost ten days in advance of the reservation). Because of the extenuating circumstances I requested a refund. I called the Ballastone directly on January 4 and requested a refund and that the manager return my call. On January 8, I emailed the Ballastone and provided a copy of my doctor's letter and requested a refund again. For $293.15, this is hardly about the money. This is misguided and poor customer service. Not only did the Ballastone Inn refuse my request for a refund, they never returned any telephone call nor any email. Even American Airlines, not known for outstanding customer service, refunded the full price of my airline tickets to Savannah. It is difficult to conceive of an airline having better customer service than an Andrew Harper recommended establishment. I will avoid the Ballastone Inn at all cost.
We enjoyed our stay here tremendously. The barkeeper was especially good; she handled a pretty big crowd very well and managed to take orders and get drinks out remarkably quickly.
Truly enjoyed our Anniversary weekend at the Ballastone. The inn is beautiful, clean and our room was cozy. Every staff member was charming and ready to help in any way. Look forward to staying at the Ballastone again.
We stayed at Armstrong Inns in the Carriage House property and it was absolutely wonderful! Monique greeted us with open arms upon our arrival, and made plenty of recommendations of places to eat and things to do and see. We loved the vintage, homey feel of the Carriage House, and were excited for the rare Georgia cold that allowed us to use the fireplaces! Upon our arrival there was a bottle of wine and snacks waiting for us, and when we returned each day from sightseeing there were always plenty of baked goods replenished and the house was beautifully tidied up. All of these little details, from the privacy and quaintness of the home, to the gorgeous residential area it resides in, made our stay so unique and romantic. A gem, for sure!
I booked a last minute trip to Savannah and chose The Olde Savannah Inn to stay at for two nights. After looking at multiple B&B's, I decided to stay here because of a few different things. The rooms all looked so cozy and the attention to detail in them were matched by no competitors. I was also attracted by the photos of the various breakfasts that Kathleen cooks. Upon arrival we were greeted by Kathleen and her three beagles, Sir Bailey Mr. Cooper and Andy. The atmosphere in the home felt like I stepped back in time in Savannah and I immediately fell in love. My girlfriend and I stayed downstairs in the Provence Room and we loved it. The bed and sheets were beyond comfortable and the HUGE walk-in shower was a bonus. We had our own private downstairs entrance which made it nice when we came home late after going on a ghost tour. Kathleen was such a wonderful host and cook that I think she should open her own restaurant. Her take on eggs benedict was delectable and her creme brulee french toast should be award winning. The next time I go back to Savannah there is no doubt in my mind that I will be staying here. I will be looking forward to the next time I get to spend a weekend with Kathleen and the pups.
Stayed at the Sgt. Jasper House with 4 friends to celebrate my 50th birthday in Savannah. The townhouse was very pretty and nicely decorated. (It's not a brand spanking new place and does show some wear & tear, but we thought it added to its charm.) We had plenty of room and didn't have to share beds which was one of the reasons I chose it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the staff even brought it over to our townhouse and set it up on the dining table. The location was great. We all loved our stay and thought it was a great value.
We had a wonderful stay at Joan's on Jones in Savannah! This bed and breakfast is pet friendly which allowed us to bring our dog. Joan's on Jones is well within walking distance for everything that you would want to see. Our dog went with us on many of our walking tours! We had a lovely weekend get-away in this beautiful dog friendly city!
Our room was clean and comfortable. There were a few things that needed repair or updating, but I am very fussy and overall, it would recommend this B&B. It's in a great location, it's clean and comfortable, people were friendly and accommodating, breakfast was delicious. Good value for the price. I would not hesitate yo stay here again.
We have been wanting to stay here for a while. It's always booked so when I finally found a day that met our schedule we took it. We enjoyed the stay, I feared I wouldn't be able to sleep because of all the paranormal activities you hear about. Well I slept beyond good! Best sleep I'd had in a while. We are Locals and will be back. We enjoyed it!
Our stay at Tybee Island inn was short but not short enough.The dinning area is in the hall, The Rooms up stairs are dirty and look like they hired Elmer Fudd to do the finish work. Wall paper and paint were peeling off the walls. We talked to the owner through Email about this and how unsatisfied we were and she basically said too bad we have great reviews. Loved the Island just should have stayed elsewhere.We have stayed in hundreds of B&B's but this was about the worst.
The Ballastone was all and more than we ever could have anticipated! The service was exceptional the staff was exceptional the rooms were comfortable I can't even begin to describe what a wonderful time my husband and I had! We are already planning our next trip to Savannah and the Ballastone Inn!!
After a stressful week my wife and I decided to head to Savannah for an evening of time for us. We took advantage of the Owners Special at Savannah B & B for the night. We were assigned a third floor room which is quite a climb. The room was nicely decorated and clean. Our only real complaint was the breakfast, it wasn't really that special breakfast you expect at a B & B. And for a southern location NO GRITS was a surprise.
We stayed for New Year's Eve a few days in the Sunrise Suite and thoroughly enjoyed our stay :) Patty and Susie were wonderful and the breakfasts were incredible - we got up early on the gorgoeus porch each morning to watch the sunrise waiting for Patty to come make the most delicious food - we watched her each morning from the kitchen bar and had a blast! Highly recommend staying at this B&B - so quiet and great location/ocean views.
Celebrating two birthdays and the Christmas holiday with two dear friends couldn't have been more perfect! Cocktails, dinner and then we all stayed the night at the inn. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed their visit as well. The absolute perfect answer to an evening out - and you don't even have to leave the building!! - Sherry Murat P.S. Kudos to Steven! The best server in Savannah!
From the check in process to the rooms to the food and the actual place itself it was wonderful. It was a great location and we really enjoyed our time there. The first morning breakfast was wonderful and filling(shrimp and grits) the next morning was a little small but I guess we could ever ask for more. Definitely would recommend this place!
It was so peaceful having one of the famous Savannah squares right across from our BnB. The history of the city surrounds you and we felt like we were in the heart of it all. Our room was very comfortable and exactly what we were hoping for in terms of ambiance. Thanks to staff for an exceptional experience.
Descubre Savannah, la ciudad de los fantasmas
La ciudad de Savannah es la mayor y también la más antigua del estado de Georgia. Fue fundada en 1733 junto con la colonia de Georgia y se convirtió, unos años después, en la capital de la Colonia Real de Georgia. Conocida como “la ciudad anfitriona del Sur”, por la tradicional hospitalidad de los habitantes del sur de los Estados Unidos, recibe cada año la visita de millones de turistas. Es además famosa por sus fantasmas, tanto como puede serlo Salem, en Massachusetts. Las historias paranormales se remontan en esta ciudad a sus mismos inicios, y los incidentes documentados son numerosos.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Savannah
Entre los cinco distritos históricos de la ciudad se cuentan 22 plazas, cada una asociada a un momento distinto de la historia, y a lo largo de toda la ciudad hay varias iglesias y sinagogas, además de viviendas históricas en perfecto estado de conservación.

En el centro histórico de la ciudad se conserva un cementerio de la época colonial y a no mucha distancia del centro se encuentran varios fuertes que sirvieron para la defensa de la ciudad durante la guerra civil estadounidense. El antiguo Cotton Exchange, construido en 1887, es de obligada visita. Antiguamente era el lugar en el que se llevaban a cabo todas las transacciones comerciales del algodón sureño, y lugar de partida y llegada de esta carga; su visita, junto con el recorrido por el Historic Riverfront Park es toda una experiencia.
