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

This is our second trip to Apalachicola, but our first stay at the Gibson Inn. It's a lovely, old- fashioned place with wraparound porches and a spacious lobby. The old bar is a nice place for a drink (especially on a cold winter day), and the bartender made us some wonderful martinis! We were happy they allowed us to have... More

The Gibson has all the old inn charm you want. The rooms on the top floor are the quietest with village views. Apalachicola is a must see historic town. Take a bike and ride around and look at the beautiful houses and streets. The inn's restaurant is very good and the bar with polished wood is one of my favorites.... More

We decided to celebrate the New Year by going to the Gibson Inn for their gala. The inn is "clean, comfortable and charming" as described by another reviewer; bear in mind that it is old and the floors creak and the hot & cold faucets are separate and you can hear the people in the room next door. As long... More

Clean, comfortable, and charming, this little hotel is central to Apalachicola. Shopping and dining are steps away. The hotel bar is packed on Friday nights with locals and tourists and plenty of interesting tales. Staff is friendly and helpful. Best accommodations in Apalach.

Each room is a little different, location is full of history and charm. Wonderful on-site restaurant and the bar is fantastic. Everyone at this Inn works to make you feel at home. Apalachicola is a cute little town and you can walk to most places around town!
