Outstanding in every way

When my husband and I visited Savannah we stayed at the Ballastone Inn and we were delighted with every aspect. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and quite comfortable. We enjoyed meeting other guests in the beautiful sitting room and the staff was very professional and helpful. They answered our many questions and helped us find our way around thieir lovely city. It was very nice to be centrally located and in easy walking distance of galleries and shopping. We felt safe and comfortable in the Inn - almost like being in someone's home. We will definitely stay at the Ballastone again when we visit Savannah.

Soooo Overrated

Really cheap/small bathrooms. Busy street with more road noise than expected. Inadequate parking which forced us to park on street with metered parking. Small breakfasts that left us hungry. This inn is so overrated compared to others that we have visited. All things are relative and relative to the price this is not a good value.

Great Location/Lovely Inn

My husband & I arrived Christmas Day and thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. Breakfasts were scrumptous. Trolley stop was directly in front of the inn, which made sight-seeing an enjoyable experience, despite the rainy weather we endured. We had one of the smaller rooms on the first floor and it was delightful.
