We spent one night in the Ballastone, and I wish I could spend at least a week there.

Every single staff member is courteous and accommodating to the point where it's almost (but not quite) overdone. You feel so comfortable it's almost dangerous.

The breakfast, high tea, happy hour, and sherry at 10pm are all high quality and make you feel rather spoiled. The chef who prepares the breakfast is a lovely woman who makes delicious fare. The rooms are decorated wonderfully, and each is different. If a room is empty, guests are invited to explore so that they can get a feel for what different rooms are like. The Inn is in a very convenient location, and when you step outside you are right in the historic district with everything close at hand. The staff will, of course, help you with any suggestions or reservations you may want.

If you want to spoil yourself or your significant other, I highly recommend the Ballastone. It is the best B&B I have every stayed in.

Room Tip: The fourth floor is supposedly haunted! Also, rooms higher up in the courtyard will get more light, while those lower down never really get much light.

Had to carry our own luggage a block away to a city parking deck that was a seperate cost from the already over priced room in 95+ degree weather. The lady who runs the inn is very pleasant and welcoming but let her know if you would like privacy because she can be invasive. Also the staff will inform you that they have filmed so called spiritual orbs dancing in the lobby after dark.

Room Tip: Shop around for better accomodations

The Ballastone is the perfect place to stay when visiting Savannah. The staff will assist you in every way and make your stay as comfortable as possible. They will also help with reservations, tours or any thing else you might be interested in during your stay. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent and accommodate large and small breakfast appetites. Located in the heart of the historic district, you are within walking distance of most attractions. There is limited parking behind the Inn and an elevator for those who prefer it. I will stay here again and again whenever I return to Savannah.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are a bit larger than the others.

My husband and I spent two nights at The Ballastone June of 2011. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. We were unsure of how it would be. The mansion was beautiful and the courtyard was our favorite place at the inn. We stayed in a courtyard room "Low Country". The room was lovely, quaint and comfortable. The bathroom was just ok and nothing fancy. Amenities included an awesome southern breakfast. For breakfast you choose where you would like to be seated and they set up a private table for just you and yours so that was a nice touch. Parking was either behind the inn (they only have 6 spots available) or you can do as we did and park at street side parking which was convenient for us. Staff was polite and always smiling. We had never seen Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We asked them for a copy of the movie so we could watch it. They ended up giving us a copy to take home since they had 2 of them. I thought that was especially thoughtful. The inn is walk-able from everything in the historic district. We went on a tour with All About Savannah Tours through this inn and it was the highlight of our stay. Kathy with All About Savannah Tours is excellent and well worth the cost of the tour. The only negative I could say about this Inn is it was a bit too quiet at night and we felt we had to tiptoe when we came in late. We would stay at this Inn again.

Room Tip: The Low Country is a courtyard level room and was quaint and comfortable.
