Even with its mixed reviews here, we thought we've give this place a try as we headed to FL to avoid the snow and ice in Georgia. The price was high, but lower than the surrounding brand name motels and lots lower than the B&Bs Unfortunately, the motel is run down, with a stained and cracked sink, poorly lit (40W CFL bulbs in the fixtures), and indifferently cleaned, and on our second day, not cleaned or made up at all. Apalachicola is fun, and the food is wonderful, but pony up a few extra dollars for a room to really enjoy your visit. Best word for the Rancho Inn? Depressing.
