This was our second visit to the Ballastone and hopefully, it will not be our last. Our room was charming.. The service was fabulous and the Inn is well located. Just a really nice B&B.


Lives up to its' reputation

Our stay at the Ballastone Inn was everything I hoped it would be. The staff made us feel right at home and the rooms were so much more inviting than even the best hotels. My husband I agreed that we definitely want to return to Savannah and the place we'll stay is at the Ballastone Inn.


Delightful

Staying at the Ballastone Inn enhanced our Savannha visit. Jennifet, the innkeeper and her staff, understand the importance in a guests stay is in the details. Her staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms were immaculate with lots of towels. The Inn is romantic with a beautiful entrance enhanced with jazz or Sinatra playing in the background. It is a very memorable place


B and B in the heart of Savannah

4.4 on July 22, 2014

Can't beat the location, close to shopping and restaurants. Friendly staff. Good breakfast, but nothing special. If you want a B and B in the heart of Savannah, this is a great choice.


Lovely B & B

3.8 on July 19, 2014

The room was very comfortable however; we found the mattress to be very uncomfortable, we woke up in pain. The ladies especially Leigh were absolutely delightful, we felt very Welcome. The breakfast was delicious and your coffee was quite good! (which is unusual in the South). We will return! Cyndi D. Thanks!


Great Place to stay in Savannah

5 on July 18, 2014

This place was recommended to us for our visit to Savannah. Great location for walking about the town. We did not need the car once we arrived here. Rooms were very well decorated, comfy beds, and the staff was very, very accommodating. Would highly recommend Ballastone Inn to anyone.
