We very much enjoyed our weekend getaway at the GIBSON INN. We loved the quaint comfortable and the old Florida feel of the inn. Staff was very gracious and accommodating. The restaurant was closed during our visit but there were plenty of other choices within walking distance.

Arrived tired in the evening of a mid-November after a long drive. Check in was painless. Room was charming. Completely restored after an excellent dinner at the in house restaurant. This place is totally charming; polite staff, a cat in the lobby, lovely downtown and beautiful weather. Excellent bar and porches to die for. My wife and I will definitely... More

We have been here before and love to back! It is a great little hidden corner of the world. It is old and charming but has been well cared for and updated. We love Kimberly, who works there. She is a local treasure! She will make your stay great and hook you up with all kinds of great ideas for... More

A group of girls took a trip up to Apalachicola from different parts of Florida specifically for the Murder Mystery Weekend, and it ended up being an unforgettable weekend. We took the 6 hour drive and finally arrived to the beautiful Inn, greeted by the nicest and most professional workers. Kimberly particularly sticks out in my mind by going above... More

On New Year's Day my friend and I had a lovely dinner at the Gibson inn. The food was excellent, the prices very reasonable, the portions were nicely sized and the attention to detail in each dish was outstanding. We started the meal with fresh bread and a few choices of spreads including a butter and Tupelo honey mixture and... More

Great place; wonderful staff. Cynthia (night auditor) is an encyclopedia of local history ; Salem (the lobby cat) is a very sociable part of the charm :) The food is super and the bar is very cool; this is NOT your 'Best Western' or 'Holiday Inn' type place .... it is very much a relaxed Southern charmer.. Rooms are clean... More

I had booked a two day Thanksgiving retreat at the Gibson. Ten days before I didn't know if I'd be able to honor my reservation or not because of a family emergency. Brittney responded very professionally and sensitively to my email query. In the end my wife and I were able to go Apalachicola, but it was after a very... More

The Inn has 30 rooms, only 5 were occupied when I was there. Clean, incredibly comfortable beds -- the attention to detail by the staff is wonderful. The bar is lively and Betsy is an iconic figure. Don't miss her nor the oysters or the beet, brussels sprout salad. Only disappointment is the skimpy breakfast - no fruit or yogurt.... More

If you are looking for fun, off beat place to plan a get-away, the Gibson Inn in Apalachicola is it! It's a beautiful historical Inn centered in an funky and eccentric little town. We recently participated in a Murder Mystery weekend at the Gibson which was so much fun! We highly recommend attending one of the Murder Mystery events. Not... More
