    A charming remnant of old florida with a grace and class about it enhanced by an attentive staff. . We are repeat visitors and plan to return. Nice walking community with shops and eateries. There is a friendly, but bossy cat that is really in charge.

    I just got back from spending four days at the Gibson. What a wonderful time! I can hardly wait to go back next summer. The Inn is in excellent shape with a more-than friendly atmosphere. Everything was just charming. You'll enjoy Salem, the inn's cat.....What a sweetie! I just did not want to leave!

    This was our second visit to the Gibson Inn. We were greeted warmly by Cynthia who assigned us to a corner room on the second floor, a fairly spacious room. This is a typical old historic Inn so we expected to see somewhat dated furnishings, but this only adds to the charm. I enjoyed the verandah with all the rocking... More

    Built in 1906, a beautifully restored, 2 story Victorian hotel! Completely surrounded by upper and lower porches filled with chairs,rockers and swings. The people, and the property exude old southern charm and hospitality. Reasonably priced and centrally located.Great place for a little R&R. Worth going out of your way for

    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
