Driving the Gulf coast, we were looking for out-of the-way towns. Apalachicola fits the bills. This hotel/condo is in an historic fishing village. The Water Street Hotel is next to restaurants and fishing boats. Check-in was easy and cordial. There is an elevator to the second floor and luggage carts if you over-pack like I do.
The 1.5 bedroom and 2 bathroom apartment was spacious and well-appointed. 1.5 bedroom means a twin cot fits in the room. The bathrooms had high-end fixtures and toiletries. The kitchen was large and had plenty to cook a meal. There was even starter food in the fridge: fruit cups, muffins, yogurt, and bottled water, so you don't have to race out to the store the first day. Coffee, cream, and sweeteners were also by the coffee pot. The bed was comfortable, free wi-fi, and a washer/dryer (bring/buy your own suds).
There is a large screened porch with fans and furniture. You are away from the white sandy Gulf here, but you can find the beaches in nearby St. George Island. I thought the price was slightly high for a self-cater and the location, but I would stay here again. Definitely recommended.
