Stayed at Gibson Inn this past weekend and left very sleepy and disappointed. Between the noise from the room above us and the extremely loud air conditioner we slept very little. I expected the rooms to be a little dated due to the age of the building but I think some renovation is overdue. Rocking on the porch was the highlight of our stay. The shower backed up and was very slow to drain, sink was small and I could find only one electrical outlet without having to move the bed. I would encourage management to keep the cat out of the lobby and not have it walk and lay on the front desk...a very big turn off and unsanitary issue for me.
- 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
