Checked in to my room at this historic hotel and was greeted with a constant vibrating sound from inside. It was annoying enough to force me to change rooms. Space was a bit cramped but a good night's sleep was had. My credit card statement showed that I was charged for two nights instead of one. I had to call... More

We stayed here almost by accident. We stopped to shelter from a thunder storm. As we walk into the hotel bar, we were impressed with the "old world" charm of the place. We stayed in very nice room on the second floor. It was clean and well equipped and we enjoyed a good night's sleep in the king size bed.... More

We walked in and got a very nice room. I wish we hadn't given it up to be closer to the beach at St. George Island, because we had a nightmare stay at the St. George Inn after this great place. The ambiance here is nice, the clientele upscale. Not much breakfast, and it's cold, but it's good enough. The... More

The most enjoyable 2 nights of an annual "girls'" trip - I will and have already recommended the Gibson Inn to several friends for a stay. The continental breakfast was enough to get us started in the morning. Happy Hour on the veranda was a pleasant way to end our day.

We were traveling the Florida panhandle in our RV camper and were frustrated there were no campgrounds near Apalachicola - a great little town we really wanted to spend time in (and we were not disappointed once there!!). So, after wandering in and looking around a bit, we splurged and booked a couple nights. What a beautiful early 20th century... More

We loved the history of this hotel. The staff was amazing and very very helpful. I do have to say if you stay here stay on the opposite side of the hotel away from the road. Road does get very noisy at night. But the location of the hotel is awesome for sight seeing

This Inn is so full of American History. We enjoyed our weekend there and hearing about the history of the Inn. The employees are so nice and friendly. The best service from check in to check out. Here are a few tips... There is no elevator so if you book on the 3rd floor your walking up stairs (like we... More

my husband and I stayed at the Gibson Inn it was the chilly but the Inn was beautiful the staff friendly. We went to St. George Island and ate some delicious oysters and enjoyed the beautiful city. We would stay there every trip to Florida.

We participated in the Murder Mystery weekend. It was amazing. The weekend was fun and non-stop. When we arrived, we went straight to the bar and enjoyed relaxing with a couple of drinks. The rooms were quaint and we ended up sleeping with the resident cat both nights...or should I say the resident cat ended up sleeping with us! We... More

Having traveled extensively, this is at the top of my list of amazing hotels. The reasons are many. The staff was ever helpful and very warm and friendly. The inn is magical. I hope we can return there. Salem, the sweet black cat, pretty much owns the place! He was wonderful too. Our rooms were fantastic (we experienced two of... More
