What a great experience! This was our first time to Apalachicola and we loved it! The Gibson Inn was so wonderful and decked out in Christmas decorations was an added bonus. We had a third floor room and got a workout going up & down the stairs, but I needed it. The only down side was the Continental Breakfast. We were expecting more than stale pastries and orange juice in prepackaged containers...come on, we're in FL...at least put out a pitcher of OJ, even if it's MinuteMaid, pretend it's fresh squeezed! Also, the yogurt needed to ice, warm yogurt, yuk, but it beat the pastries!
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Ready with maps and recommendations.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gibson Inn is a fine example of Florida "Cracker" Architecture. This was the style of wood frame structure used widely in the 19th and early 20th century in Florida. These homes and businesses are characterized by metal roofs, raised floors, high ceilings, center hallways, and large wrap around porches. A widows walk and cupola crown the tin roof, all a reflection of the area's steamboat past. Built in 1907 of native heart pine and black cypress, the inn soon became known as a first class luxury hotel and was the only one between Pensacola and Jacksonville heated entirely by steam. Now listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places. Many of the 30 guest rooms are uniquely appointed with authentic antique furnishings, cable TV, telephone, and wireless internet. Each guest room has its own full private bath. ... more less
