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

We stopped in Apalachicola on our drive home from New Orleans & we were pleasantly surprised at the warm friendliness of this little town. The staff at this hotel are all so nice & we even chatted up with the guests. We had a waterfront room & watched the most amazing sunrises & sunsets from our balcony. And the breakfast... 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

My wife and I stayed at the Apalachicola River Inn for the Run for the Bay Marathon. We were excited about spending a relaxing weekend in historic Apalachicola and thought we were signing up for a B&B type experience (which this is clearly not). Upon arriving at the Inn we checked in and entered our room and immediately a strong,... More

We have stayed both upstairs and down. Love sitting out on the porch looking at the water. Breakfast is always wonderful and tops anywhere we have stayed. Already have made my next reservations. The rooms are very nice and we live walking around town enjoying all that it offers.

They call this area Florida's " forgotten coast." Selfishly, I hope it stays forgotten. It is beautiful, but hard to get to and uncrowded. This establishment is in an old building right on the river. The rooms are nicely furnished. Each room has a deck overlooking the river. Boss Oysters and Caroline's Restaurant are at opposite ends of the complex.... More
