The bottom line is, we won't go back, for two reasons - one of which could be fixed, but the other can't. (1) The internet was SLOW at the best times, and it kept cutting out completely. That's fine if you just want to check email, but not if you want to stream a movie on your laptop. (2) The un-fixable reason: the old floors transmit every sound from upstairs. The family in the suite above ours was not a bunch of elephants, but it sounded like it, every time anyone took a step. There are so many other options for interesting places in Savannah, that for those two reasons, we'll try someplace else next time.
Having said that, if you don't care about having wifi, and if you don't mind noise from upstairs, there is a lot to like about the Olde Harbour Inn. The staff members were all wonderfully helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets and towels were good quality, with a subtle fresh smell to them. At breakfast, the scrambled eggs were tough each of the 3 mornings, and the grits were usually stiff, but the biscuits were great and there were several other options. "Not bad for a free breakfast." We enjoyed the wine and snacks in the evening. The location is great, just a few steps from River Street.
