The rooms are nice the view is excellent. Breakfast comes with the price of the room. The Breakfast was outstanding, one choice is 2 eggs, ham or bacon or sausage, potatoes or grits, toast or homemade biscuit. Another choice was an oyster omelette. All come with coffee or tea and fresh squeezed orange juice.

We spent a night at River Inn last week and it was wonderful. We spent lots of time sitting out in front of our unit watching river boat traffic and the occasional dolphin going by. Our beds were comfortable and the room was spacious and very nicely decorated. We also enjoyed our complementary breakfast at Caroline's (I highly recommend the... More

We stayed here based on Trip Advisor reviews and loved the old Florida style of this hotel. It is walking distance to their little downtown area and everyone on staff was very nice. I loved watching the sun rise over the water while still keeping my head on the pillow! We stayed here twice the same week in rooms 18... More

Room 24 is a suite on the nw corner 2nd floor. Dated but comfortable. Breakfast is included. Enjoy the sloooooowwwwww pace of the town. Every attraction is walking distance. The view from the room and dining room is waterfront and serene. Offseason rates are reasonable. There are two breakfast menus.

Older but very pleasant - river dock right out your door! The included breakfast is a full sit down meal. Staff is really friendly and helpful. Queen sized bed is a bit small for restless sleepers like me and my husband.

Riding by this place seemed sketchy but it was a throwback in time. The building is tin on the front. We had a downstairs room #6, it was quiet, and cool. A deck that overlooked the water and the boats. Down a few steps there was another deck and on Saturday night it was crowded with families fishing. Very laid... More

We stayed in the Rose suite. Nice spacious room, gorgeous sunrise and river views. The private porch was a great place to have a glass of wine, relax, and watch the boats pass by. We ate our breakfast waterside at Carolines. Not only was the breakfast free but excellent!

We checked out other properties in the area. All were musty or had poor air conditioning or no view, too dark, nothing special. Our room at The Apalachicola River Inn had icy air conditioning, a great view, KILLER sunrise, was 3 feet from the water and 1 minute walk from Caroline's Restaurant on the same property. We were given AAA... More
