The place was very nice and historical. The only issue is that the rooms on the bottom floor do not have climate control in the rooms. Since there are no vents in the rooms, the circulation is done by a fan so things can get stuffy. If you need climate control make sure you verify with the hotel after booking.

Fabian, Thank you for the warm words. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that we could make you comfortable for your time in Savannah. I did want to point out that the Garden Rooms on the lower level do have air vents in them. Being that the house is almost 200 years old, there was only one main air unit out in for the Garden level. We do keep that at a comfortable setting depending on season and the fans are for extra air flow should a guest need it. We hope to see you back soon. Best, The Ballastone

Inn is in a beautiful, restored building. Three plus floors but there is an elevator. Beautiful attached courtyard. Rooms are individually decorated and named - Hannah, Savannah, etc. and all staff are accommodating and courteous. This is basically a bed and breakfast not a full service hotel but charming in how things are done. There are usually 3 breakfast choices (included) which are served in one of several designated rooms at small tables - the tea room, the living room, etc. In the heart of the historic district. Rooms are not cookie-cutter and each has its own distinctive look. Highly recommend.
