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

Yes, there is a heavy humidity in the area, but the RiverInn simply handled it greatly. The room was clean and comfortable, the view amazing and the calm and peace for a few days was spectacular. A plus... we could keep our little dog with us. Kind people and nice place :)

Cool with a tons of character. Still has the looks of a fifties hotel. We stayed in a second story room with a great balcony with a fabulous view the lake. On Monday the oyster boat unloaded and cleaned their catch on site, very cool! Clean and affordable!

I know what the salt water environment does to homes. It isn't easy to stay ahead of the wear and tear. The Apalachicola River Inn stays ahead by maintaining their property and by offering an outstanding cooked to order breakfast. If you run out of spirits before you retire, the lobby offers a tastefully stocked liquor store with reasonable prices.

We have once again stayed at this hidden gem for our weekend getaway for my fiancés birthday. As always the staff was fantastic. They did not have a do not disturb sign in our room but the owner walked by and helped us out by taping one on our door to avoid having to walk to the office. First time... More
