We just spent a week at the Gibson Inn and it was incredible. Sharon and Sue at guest registration were especially helpful (the entire staff is fabulous). Betsy at the lovely bar is interesting and fun. The little bar spills out onto the verandah on Friday nights. Guests should come prepared to meet people from all over and all equally friendly. The housekeeping staff attended to all our needs quickly and with southern hospitality. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed the stay only that we cannot wait to go back.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gibson Inn is a fine example of Florida "Cracker" Architecture. This was the style of wood frame structure used widely in the 19th and early 20th century in Florida. These homes and businesses are characterized by metal roofs, raised floors, high ceilings, center hallways, and large wrap around porches. A widows walk and cupola crown the tin roof, all a reflection of the area's steamboat past. Built in 1907 of native heart pine and black cypress, the inn soon became known as a first class luxury hotel and was the only one between Pensacola and Jacksonville heated entirely by steam. Now listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places. Many of the 30 guest rooms are uniquely appointed with authentic antique furnishings, cable TV, telephone, and wireless internet. Each guest room has its own full private bath. ... more less
