Tired after a long day of travel we were thrilled to find this unique hotel. Beautifully restored to its 1907 splendor, this hotel offered a variety of housing opportunities. Unsure of what type of room we would like, Kimberly offered to show us several of the rooms to help us make the decision. We chose the king suite and which... More

If you enjoy staying in old inns, the Gibson Inn is a good stop. It is both clean and friendly. My disappointment was in the lounge in the evening. Guests should not be subjected to F-bombs in this type of setting. We stayed for three nights. After dinner we went to the lounge and on each night there was someone... More

Good location and staff very friendly and helpful. But the upkeep is poor (at least in room 315) and the room needs repairs and some investment. The fixtures are of lowish quality, not just old, and I'd suggest a few things could be changed to bring the nice 'old world ambience' up to the standards of a modern hotel.

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
