As I approached Riverside Inn by car, my thought was "Did I make a good choice?" Don't judge a book by its cover! The rooms are amazing. Clean updated rooms, comfortable bed, balcony overlooking the river. Free breakfast at Caroline's Restaurant. A real breakfast with great service. No microwaveable do it yourself! Easy walking distance to three or more great... More

We had a wonderful stay. The view of the river from the rooms is beautiful - the rooms open right out onto a deck with two Adirondack chairs per room. The complimentary, made to order breakfast at the restaurant next door was amazing - my husband is still talking about his oyster and gouda omelet. The staff were wonderful and... More

Great location, super view from second floor room. Room was well appointed, housekeeping was excellent the room was very clean. Great free breakfast at Caroline's, probably the best in town. Right next door to Boss oyster, the oysters were local and very good. We were in a room away from the second floor bar which worked well.

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Off season price for room a real value given location. Clean room and view of river from room very pretty. Staff friendly and breakfast was very good- meant to ask what brand bacon they used, some of the best I have eaten. Love the convenience of walking to historic areas of Apalachicola.... More

River Inn has a great location right ON the river and in the historic district. Free breakfast at Caroline's was great! Staff is friendly. Building needs some maintenance. For the price I would expect in-room refrig, microwave, coffee maker, wifi, etc.

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

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.
