Boss Oyster has good food. The hotel is attached. Dog friendly. Easy walk to everywhere. Bar open until 2 which is late for this town. Another fancy restaurantAND a bar that can't be discounted, it is functional. The rooms are better than Combs or Gibson. Not to knock those great places (you can't go wrong with any).

Apalachicola has many overnight options. We chose the River Inn because of the balcony and the view. We had stayed at a marina next door while cruising on our sailboat and liked watching the river activity. That is probably the only reason I would return. It is convenient to walking to restaurants. The inn is rundown (rustic) and overpriced, but... More

The River Inn IS old Florida with all it's charm. If you like: being right on the river & watching the oystermen, shrimp boats, fishermen & wild life; great gourmet breakfast included; great friendly staff; within walking distance to almost everything in town - you will love this Inn. No, it is not fancy but it is clean & they... More

Stayed for one night only while traveling. Rooms were large and nicely decorated with a private balcony on the second floor. King bed was super comfortable. Nice bathrooms, clean and roomy. Towels were rolled and tied with ribbons. Awesome touch. Breakfast at Caroline's was included with the room. The lady at the desk was super nice and helpful. Can't go... More

The facility and area are very much a rustic environment. In fact, the sign only says "Inn" as the rest of it has been worn odd by the sun and rain. If it wasn't for google maps, we probably would not have found the place. Also, there is nothing to do there if you don't want to go fishing. We... More

We were so charmed with this hotel the first time we stayed, that we booked it again. It has such a local feel, and the views are second to none! We saw porpoises and a manatee from our balcony overlooking the river. A full breakfast at the restaurant next door is included in the price of your room, and it... More

In all of my travels and hotel stays this place ranks as the worst. I will try to keep my experience brief but suffice to say that I have never been treated so poorly. During a road trip I arrived in the late afternoon to Apalachicola on a busy weekend. In fact so busy that I apparently found the very... More

For all those city folks worried about "bugs", it is a fact of life in the deep south especially near a water way. When I stayed here, I was totally amazed with the seafood in the in house restaurant. I was not surprised at laid back service. Heck, this is a laid back place. I had the best oysters available...

Plus: 1. Screened porch for dining in Old Florida style 2. Beautiful right-on-the river view Minus: 1. Missing drapery hooks, if you want privacy, reach for the beach towel to cover your window 2. Rooms have that trapped mildew smell 3. After a long day, with my granddaughter at the beach, I was looking forward to soaking in the bathtub,... More
