Seeking warm weather and a new place to "call home", Marcia and I decided to visit Apalachacola (we love oysters). Found the Consulate via Google and reserved a suite. Luckiest decision I've made in ages. I booked for one night, but we stayed longer, necessitating different suites. Each suite has everything you could want, including washer/dryer, full kitchen, hand ironed... More

We stayed in the Ambassador suite in mid-February 2015, and the "apartment" is absolutely beautiful! Brick walls, restored wood floors, white woodwork, balcony that overlooks the Apalachicola river, fully equipped luxury kitchen, and wonderfully decorated, including a handpainted mural in the bathroom. There is even a "library": an area with floor to ceiling bookcases and comfy chairs. This was such... More

We had an enjoyable stay at the Attaché’ suite. It was a nice quiet time to be visiting Apalachicola. That was just what we were looking for. We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants and shops from the terrific location. The park across the street is very nice too. Let’s start with what was good…. Internet worked great. Heating...

We just stayed for one night in this HUGE apartment in the lovely town of Apalachicola. We arrived too late to meet anyone (the keys were in a box with a code) but the place itself was amazing. Very tasteful, nice treats, very comfortable beds. We loved everything. It has all the amenities but with a true charm. You feel... More

We just stayed at the Consulate in the Ambassador Suite. It was great...beyond category. We had stayed at Coombs House, a B&B as well. This place is an apartment where you can cook if you want to and just feel like you are at home in your own nest. (Ok, Luxury nest) It was great. Coombs House was great too... More

This place is amazing wonderful accommodations. Best location and amazing price for what you get!!! Don't stay anywhere else!!!!! We stayed in the Port Captain Quarters and it is equivalent to a 4- diamond resort. So comfortable and very well appointed. We will be back!

This building was built in 1880 by the JE Brady Co, as a hardware and ships store. The Brady store is still there but as a gift shop. The second floor, in the early 1900s, housed the French Consulate, the Captain of the Port and the US Customs office. The building has now been restored and reinvented into four luxury... More

Rooms were beautiful with a great little balcony overlooking a little park. Might be the best view of any place in town. Rooms were beautiful. My wife got very sick and we had to leave a day early, so our visit was sadly shortened. We paid full price for the night we could not stay, but I understand that. All... More

A comfortable room and well equipped kitchen enabled us to make use of the seafood market across the road. When the sun shone, the balcony was a very pleasant place to enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. Note that the rooms are not serviced during a stay unless specifically requested. This was not a problem for us.

The Consulate Suites was a great choice for our weekend in Apalachicola. We stayed in the Port Captain suite. The room was very comfortable. The kitchen had all the necessary tools, gadgets, utensils, etc. My wife liked the wine glasses so much we bought some at a local store. There was a balcony overlooking the river. We enjoyed some wine... More
