There are 3 houses comprising The Coombs Inn . The main Inn had a lovely dining room, stair case was gorgeous. Classic. The house we stayed in was also very lovely, clean & sufficient. One bottle of water, no wine glasses & a little shabby (not in a cool way) around the edges. A lack of attention to detail, I... More

I would give 4 stars for the actual "bed" part and 3 for the "breakfast" part and almost everything else. We arrived about 6 p.m. and had informed the innkeeper that we would be there about that time. She was very friendly but completely frazzled. She got us checked in and to our rooms, we were two couples traveling together.... More

If you are in or near Apalachicola and want a classy B and B stop at the Coombs house. It is quiet, close to everything and well kept. This old house is very well restored and represents a grand age of old Florida. We were greeted in a friendly manner and well cared for during our visit. We will return.

What you see is not what you get. The reality is much different from the blurb .these people are so full of themselves I believe they have started to believe their own publicity . The much hyped veranda suites are small with a jacuzzi stuck in one corner of what I suppose you may call a lounge ! Totally out... More

Having done the research, this place looked like a real experience. We weren't dissapointed. I can see it would not be everyones cup of tea as it is a real experience of days gone. If you can get bored by the endless hotels on offer this is a must. Old world charm, creaky floors, lovely welcome and help with local... More

She was very poorly dressed and... More

I had read about Apalachicola, love old towns and history and it was midway on my trip between Cocoa Beach and northeast Alabama. By almost accident I ended up a single lady staying in this romantic old inn on of all days Valentine's Day. Ouch! But I couldn't have had a nicer experience....I enjoyed a glass of wine with two...

After staying at Select Registry properties for more than nine years, we now know the difference between current and former properties. While the Coombs House Inn was a pleasant place to stay, it was well over priced for the overall experience. The breakfast was good, but definitely not on par with all other experiences at a Select Registry property. Sorry... More
