“Loved the Combs Inn...we always do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2009

This was our fourth stay at the Coombs House Inn in Apalach. We keep coming back because the rooms are great and the hospitality is fantastic. We especially enjoy meetime and chatting with other guests at "wine time" and in the mornings at breakfast. Our hosts made us feel welcome, appreciated and comfortable. We can recommend the Coombs House without reservation.

Stayed January 2009

I see from the other reviews that a lot of people like the Coombs Inn but I didn't care for it. We were there for 2 nights.

We had Room 2 - Wilson. It was nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. However, I couldn't sleep at all because of the street noise. This room is right next to Hwy 98 and there was traffic all night. I thought Apalachicola was supposed to be a quiet town! There was also a lot of light in the room. There was a large bay window and another window behind the bed. Even though there were blinds and curtains, they did not keep out the light. Also, the door to the room was a French, parlor type door. It was covered with a curtain but still let a lot of light in from the lobby.

Our toilet was dirty and it wasn't cleaned the second day either.

The breakfast was just average for a B and B.

We won't be staying here again.

We stayed there for only one night, but wish we could have stayed longer! The entire house was so beautiful, filled with little charms around every corner. They served two very nice bottles of wine for the social hour and the snacks and breakfast were very satisfying. The town surrounding the Inn is a gem! We definately recommend Coombs Inn.

Stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our room, The Heron, was wonderful and very clean.
The furnishing throughout the house and room were amazing. The convenience to downtown was great also.
Stella, the Innkeeper, was very, very friendly and full of information about the area and the house. She has been there for many years and takes real pride in her job and in the house. The temp dropped down to near-record lows and she made sure everyone was warm enough, even providing heaters if needed.
She was always around too which is comforting.
We met many nice people of all ages from around the country.
I would think most guests would be pleased with their stay.
