Very nice inn! This is where I got my first cat 16 years ago when I sat in one of the rocking chairs on the wrap around porch she jumped in my lap and I took her home. The inn is beautiful and the rocking chairs and swings on the porch adds a very nice touch. The only reason I did not give it a 4 was because some of the Staff acted like they were doing the guests a favor to let them stay there. New management there needs to teach their under 25 staffers how to be a little more polite.
- 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
