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

I recently kayaked from Fort Walton Beach Florida to raise money for our returning service men and women through the Wounded Warrior Project. I finished my first 150 mile segment in Apalachicola and I pulled my kayak up on the oyster shells right next to the Apalchicola River Inn. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to...

When I read some of the better reviews posted on this property, It actually makes me feel like I stayed in a different hotel. We booked this hotel for two nights May 20/21 2016 for a kayak race. We selected it based upon the waterfront location being very close to race start location and free breakfast. The exterior of the... More

If you are looking for a quaint hotel with friendly employees and a room with a view then look no further. Every room is basically on the river. There are chairs in front of every room so you can sit and watch the shrimp boats go by, sunset, sunrise. Peaceful and relaxing.
