Although the furnishings are not brand new and the building does need some work, it is a wonderful location and very quiet at night. The room was clean and the bathroom had plenty of towels. The view is what we come for. To be able to walk out on the screened in porch and watch the sunrise over the water... More

There is so little of old Florida to be found! This gem of the hotel and the town are the real deal! The rooms are funky but the beds are new and wonderful! Forget Internet in your room and television as well and sit on your balcony instead! Book the second floor. When you step onto your balcony you feel... More

Room was not too clean, zero desk service in evening when there was a problem with drunks yelling on their pier well after midnight, garage sale furniture, funky rug, ceiling cracked and funky in bathroom, no screens on window, torn screens and peeling paint throughout the place. It needs some serious attention. For almost $400. for two nights, we were... More

Our furniture is purchased from Pier 1 with whom we have had a commercial buyer's designation for 15 years. Please see the review above yours posted on the same date "Pure serenity". Please see the reviewer's photo submission of the upstairs room they stayed in. GARAGE SALE furnishing? What garage sale? Instead of responding to the rest of the review... More

We spent a short weekend for our anniversary. While the weather was rotten, the room and location of the inn was perfect. We had the Rose Suite - which is large open room, big screened porch and windows all around (end unit - and the most quiet also). The view over river was gorgeous. We just had a bad weather... More

We booked an upstairs King room for two nights Feb 28 and March 1, 2014 at the Apalachicola River Inn for a wedding in the area. We were very pleased and would love to go back to stay for a longer visit. My husband and I found the room decor to be fine, if a bit quirky... The room had... More

Stayed at the Apalachicola Inn 3 years ago and just loved it, and decided to travel back to it and really enjoyed it again. The rooms are beautiful, clean and spacious. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The views from the rooms are amazing, and they have screened decks that we could sit outside and enjoy the scenery.... More

After we crossed the John Gorrie Bridge, we came immediately into Apalachicola. I had marked the Apalachicola River Inn on TripAdvisor that morning. It was dog friendly and looked interesting so I suggested we swing by and check it out, even though I thought we may want to get further along. We made an excellent decision, staying at the Apalachicola... More

In the end, the wonderful included full breakfasts at the Inn's Caroline's restaurant, trumped the drawbacks. Their website says recently remodeled, etc., but the TripAdvisor reviews are so useful. So adjust your expectations and you might enjoy your stay more. We had a 2nd story room with the porch overlooking the river. We liked that feature and thst you could... More

We stayed here a couple of nights and chose here mainly for the view of the river which you certainly get but the porch screens although doubtless needed also make the view blurry and the rockers leave you at eye height with the wooden supports. The porches also get no sun at all which in the heat of summer is... More
