Spent several days in the area and this worked for us. Rooms are tastefully decorated, a little pricey for the area, but when in Rome, go for it. The town is fun, great girl shopping, great oysters, great fun. We walked to everything in town. Enjoy the food and architecture. Get to St George. We will be back. Loved Salem... More

Very lovely place to stay! The rooms are simple but nice and clean. Our only complaint (although to no one's blame) was the noise. The rooms have little to no insulation ; resulting in the ability to hear your neighbors conversation and if you're not on the top floor you can hear EVERY single footstep. However, as I said, there's... More

My wife and I needed an overnight stay en-route to a meeting in the panhandle. We chose to stop in Apalachicola and stay at the Gibson Inn. Excellent choice. The old hotel is very well preserved and the room was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The bartender had very good suggestions for places to eat dinner... More

We stayed there with friends for their anniversary. Old but quaint! Rooms were small but comfortable. Right on the highway so sitting out on the porch wasn't as enjoyable as if we were on the river or in a courtyard. The only real negative thing was the breakfast. I wasn't expecting a sit down breakfast...but more than a stale cake... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Gibson Inn. Kimberly was so welcoming we felt like we were staying with family. She was eager to provide recommendations on places to go and things to do as well as tell us all about this wonderful little town. She is a gem! The bartender Mark was also very friendly and and took... More

We recently had a family wedding in Apalachicola and many of the guests stayed at the Gibson Inn. The Gibson is quaint, comfortable and has loads of "old Florida" character. Staff were very friendly and personable. They went out of their way to make sure we had a very good experience. Rooms were comfortable though the air conditioners can be... More

The staff made us feel like we were guest in their home. They went above and beyond in every way. You could tell that they love what they do. They were the warmest and most knowledgeable people we have encountered in our travels. We look forward to a return visit.

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
