Clean, comfy, well-kept, friendly, accommodating, etc. I have nothing but good to say about our stay at this mom & pop. We loved it. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Good cooling for our room. Staff was very knowledgeable of area and directed us to sites of interest. Will return to this mom...

We had read the reviews. It was just what we wanted. Came on granddaughters' Spring Break. We got a suite, which gave the girls their own area. Motel folks are easy to deal with and helpful at recommendations. We didn't go to the upscale restaurants or boutiques, but had great food and a great time on the beach and at... More

We stayed here 1 night on our way to New Orleans. Wanted to drive up the coast from Tampa. It was okay for myself but my Girlfriend didn't like it. We booked a non smoking room but the room smelled of smoke. Management ( husband & wife) was very responsive of situation and did their best to make us happy.... More

My husband & I & are 2 small dogs spent one night here before heading to St. george for the week. It's not a new or fancy hotel, but was clean, had a nice pool, & very friendly staff. Internet was not very good, we had to stand next to the office to get a connection, but not a big... More

We've stayed at the Rancho Inn several times over the years. The staff are very helpful and nice. The rooms and grounds are clean. It's an older hotel, so it has it's issues. Squeaky showers and such. Someone hooked up the hot water wrong in one shower, these are minor issues though. As far as I know they have the... More

This is an older property, but well-loved and cared for. The owner lives on site, and obviously takes great pride in her establishment. The rooms are clean, well-maintained, and the bed was nice. Carpets appeared to be newish, and clean as well. We asked about a taxi, owner advised there was only one, and sometimes unreliable. She offered use of... More

Okay if you look at this place it screams dirty roadside motel. The only reason it was considered was because Apalachicola was an impromptu stop on our way home and it was the cheapest in town. But it turned out to be a rather nice surprise. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. He gave us a list of things... More

Stayed here for a night while riding from Orlando to LA, only place in town with rooms! Rooms freshly cleaned for us and receptionist have great advice on where to eat. Great for an overnight stay, would stay there again.

We are touring Florida on our tandem bicycle and staying in a different town every night. The price is $25 less than the Best Western across the street. It is about a mile to the restaurants downtown. The rooms are large and clean. They have interesting indirect lighting all the way around the room above the crown molding that can... More

Stay at this hotel! You will sleep well on the bed and the atmosphere is safe! The lady even sent me to a great place to eat! She was very nice and willing to help. I'm glad we decided to stay there! I will go back again. She even spreads the guests so you're not under one another.
