This is our second time at the Old Carrabelle Hotel, but certainly not our last. Skip and Kathy are superb hosts and have created a wonderful place to relax. We requested the Magnolia room, which is where we stayed last time but it was booked so we were in the Hemingway. It was just as nice (as long as you... More

Skip & Kathy are wonderful hosts. The hotel is meticulously clean, and quaint. Quiet town, and we like it that way. Awesome oysters and blues band at the one bar in town. We will always come back there!

The stay was very exciting, we did not see the owners until time to check out, I guess they were staying downstairs. when preparing to pack and leave the owner met me as I was walking to the front door, '' mr. Fowler was that a siren that went off in your room at 4am this morning?'' No sir it... More

Your comments were interesting. Our suggestion, before you "probably stay" here again, is to articulate your comments so that some corrections can be made. You may rest assured, however, that the non-working solid brass doorknobs will still be non-working in the future, and that the deadbolt will still handle security. We have a fondness for genuine articles. Skip and Kathy More

The Carrabelle Hotel was convenient to the entire village. Our room was very nice and the setting was quite quaint. The Carrabelle Museum, the John David Patton Park and the WWII Museum are just some of the sites to visit.

My wife and I love this place, it was our first stay here and we already booked reservations for next year the same time frame. Location perfect to walk around town to local establishments and a short drive to various other attractions and local towns.

Hi Kim--- In addition to your kind words (for which we thank you), you've reminded us of something. You didn't mention that your visits are business trips, same as a small number of our other visitors. Now we aren't a corporate headquarters location to say the least, but there are a fair number of business travelers in and out. And... More

We really loved our stay at the Old Carrabelle hotel. Skip made us feel so much at home, it felt almost like we were staying at a friends' place. He gave us excellent advice about restaurants, where to eat and so forth. The room was very nicely decorated, and comfortable. And what's most amazing, this was my favorite hotel during... More

Ah, Terturia, what an applecart you've overturned! (ecrivez, we'll explain what that means): We love everything you said, except....the "cheapest" part. We've kept our rates the same, more or less, for 15 years. Some think we need our heads examined, and of course our costs have risen. But on the other hand we are full of guests a great percentage...

A cozy old hotel which has been updated but has not lost its charm. Everything we needed for our one night stay. A map for locating the breakfast locations would be helpful. Skip needs to get busy triming back the palms and trees a little. All in all a great spot at a very reasonable price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Carrabelle Hotel in Carrabelle, Florida is a "Key West style inn on The Forgotten Coast". Once the end-of-the-line railroad hotel, now you may enjoy all the modern comforts in an Old Florida casual atmosphere. There is just something about the experience of a 1900-ish inn at the coast (or a coastal cottage at the coast) that no newer motel-hotel can equal. And we are a very different B&B operation - free beach restaurant breakfasts for Hotel guests, and self check-in -- just for starters. Make your own reservation online, and receive back a confirmation with all the info you may need. Don't Expect: traffic lights, lots of people, McHamburgers, bungee jumps or late-night noise. Do expect: the best seafood, eco-activity opportunities in every direction, cultural/historical activities and a lot of peace and quiet time on the property, in the forest or on the beach or water! ... more   less
