The River Inn has a wonderful location and the staff and adjacent restaurant could not have been more helpful. However the building is in need of repair and the rooms are rustic and small but adequate. We were told that the hotel is looking for new owners. We asked for a coffee maker for our room and it was immediately... More

Quiet and funky. They do have off-season rates (and even a TripAdvisor discount), plus it's a short drive over to St. George Island. As for requiring 200 characters, hmmmmm, there were almost that many tourists wandering around the little "village" on the really chilly early-January weekend when we were there.

Nice rooms, quiet and comfortable on the water with a lovely sound of lapping waves. Breakfast which was included was ok but not exceptional. Other oyster restaurant also attached was very unspecial for dinner

Jenny W, Thanks for staying at our inn. We include a one of a kind home cooked breakfast at Caroline's. Smell the bacon, smell the fresh brewed coffee. Sit on our waterfront gazebo.

The Apalachicola River Inn is a very quaint and quit place. The location is right over the river. Our balcony view was outstanding. We would watch the pelicans, cormorants, ducks, cormorants, and dolphins go by. The staff is very friendly and courteous, and promptly fulfilled our every request. The food at the attached restaurant, Caroline's River Dining, is excellent. The... More

Nice waterfront motel with great view of the Gulf and the magnificent bridge that spans the bay. The sunrise was spectacular and the complimentary breakfast was fabulous. The motel does appear to be a little run down and the rate was a bit pricy at $118.81 including taxes but you can't beat the location.

We stayed here this past weekend, in the off, off season of early December. Rates were discounted @$109 and includes full breakfast for two in the rate. Caroline's is the restaurant and breakfast was awesome, and a value of probably $25 per day for two. (will be a separate review). On the way down I was viewing some reviews and... More

We stayed one night just to get away and were very satisfied. Staying upstairs affords you a birdseye view of the river and a more private balcony experience. The room comes with tv. No internet access, no hair dryer. The room was sound proof enough that I didn't hear the guests next door. They have renovated the bathrooms and the... More

This was probably the worst experience I have had in vacation hotel. The first thing I noticed was while walking up the outside stairwell, how rotten the stairs were and one stair, you could see that the board was rotted away and could see the ground. Then we went for dinner at Caroline's and I ordered the steak and when... More

Barry w 8, Barrie Canada, I truly believe you were disappointed. In our humble opinion you missed the point. The Apalachicola River Inn is the only waterfront inn on the downtown historic river front in Apalachicola. It is built of pecky cypress board and batten wood harvested from the river bottom for centuries, like all of the riverfront properties in... More
