“A quaint historic B&B”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We were passing through Apalachicola and just happened upon this B&B. We were given a warm welcome, The house dates back to the middle 1800 hundreds, and is full of antiquities.It is very dated in a nice kind of way. We stayed in the Wilson room on the ground floor, very small shower room but adequate,breakfast good.Staff were helpful, Staying here made a welcome change from normal hotels or motels, we would stay again if we were passing through again.

The Coombs Inn is a wonderful place for a relaxing week-end. The place was immaculately keep, bed was comfortable, very quiet, delicious breakfast and all within walking distance of downtown and riverfront.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed being in the main house but the other buildings may be equally nice.

We wanted a quiet and comfortable weekend away from home and the Coombs Inn met our needs. We enjoyed drinking champagne while sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch. The staff at the inn was l helpful and made us feel welcomed, and the wine reception that they provided was a nice start to our evening as well. We found the inn to be in a great location because it was a short walk to the town center and several great restaurants.

Recommended by a friend. Typical b&b in decor & feel. Good choice if you are in the area. Particularly liked Lana (sp?) the innkeeper. We also enjoyed the upstairs porch. $7 for serve yourself wine seemed a bit cheap for this caliber of place.

My boyfriend and I spent a couple days here before his deployment to Afghanistan. We absolutely loved it!! We stayed in the Biltmore suite. It was beautifully decorated, the bed very comfortable, and the jacuzzi tub a perfect touch!! The breakfast of gourmet apple-stuffed french toast complemented by bacon was fantastic. They also offered a variety of freshly baked goods, fresh fruit, and juices.
The staff was fantastic, helpful and attentive without being overbearing.
We have already planned a return stay when he returns from deployment!!

Room Tip: The rooms are small but exquisite. We stayed in a suite that was perfect for two people. Only downf...

We stayed two nights and throughly enjoyed our time at the Coombs House Inn.
Laini was so attentive to our needs. She helped us with suggestions as to where to shop, eat, visit, and answered all questions.
The food was deliciious and a special breakfast was prepared for our husbands since they was scheduled to go on a fishing trip.
We were treated to a romance package since both my husband and I have birthdays in October.

Bed was uncomfortable, and hostess was a little short with the guests. There was a wedding the next day and the hostess showed her feelings, which the guests should not see, they are paying clients too! Breafast was very small portions for the money. Most B&B offer snacks from lunch time to bedtime, but now here. Hostess did not want to be bothered.

Dear Valued guest, We greatly apologize you thought your stay with us was less than perfect. You mentioned that your bed was uncomfortable, I wish you had told us while you were staying with us. We have new pillowtop mattresses with down pillow toppers We could of removed these if the mattress was not firm enough. Most of our guests relish the luxurious feel but it is hard to please everyone, however we do try.
The room you stayed in is actually one of my favorites, with it's antique 4 poster bed, spacious victorian wardrobe (to hide your in-room amenities such as in-room Starbucks coffee) and lovely limoge and nipon china accents. The antique fireplace is one of the 9 origional fireplaces from when the home was first built in 1905. We do offer fresh Starbucks coffee and a wide array of teas along with fresh baked cookies each day for our guests enjoyment from 3-5pm and on both Friday and Saturday evenings we have a wine and cheese social hour for our guests from 6 to 7pm. This last weekend we had a melody of olives, a wheel of brie topped with strawberry rosettes and an array of mixed cheeses and several different types of crackers to compliment our white and red wines. Our breakfast is served on our antique sideboard each morning from 8 to 10am. We offer fresh fruit, yogert, 7 different types of dried cereal with fresh bananas for slicing and fresh milk. We also offer 4 different types of oatmeal and grits, plus 10 different types of teas, starbucks coffee, hot chocolate, fresh cream 4 different types of fresh baked muffins, 3 different types of bagels, english muffins, toast, butter, cream cheese and 3 different types of jam and honey. We also set out a fresh baked coffee cake. We ask our guests to help themselves and there are no portion restrictions. Also to enhance your breakfast buffet we serve a hot dish from the kitchen, it may be a Stratta, a Fritittia, a quiche or a fruit and cheese stuffed French toast. We always offer seconds when asked and we do speciality cook for our guests who have made previous reservations, those with special dietary needs. We also offer and prepare special picnic baskets and champagne romance packages. We offer the use of our bikes, our beach chairs, beach towels and beach umbrellas. We do try to anticipate your every need but it is hard to please everyone everytime, But we do try.
I wish you had mentioned your displeasure while you were here so that we could of made corrections. We do value our guests and their comments. That's really the only way we know where improvements need to be made.
We hope you will make plans to stay with us again. With warmest regards. The Coombs House Inn.
