Stopped here on our way to Destin from south Florida. This is Inn is lovely. Very clean and comfortable. The staff on check-in was very friendly and helpful. They have a nice bar and restaurant. We ate in the bar as we really only wanted bar food after a 7 hour drive. The bar did close early around 10PM. My only complaint would be the breakfast. It is a continental breakfast....muffins, donuts, yogert etc. That really was not the problem but the people working it didn't seem to have a clue. Getting a HOT cup of tea was really an effort. The water they had in the caraffe was luke warm and when I asked them to microwave it you would think I was asking for something that would take longer than 1 min to do. It actually was kind of a joke as the people at the next table were also Tea drinkers and they had the same problem. The morning staff was unfriendly and just didn't seem like they wanted to be there. I would however stay here again if I am in the Area. The Inn was just so charming. I loved the front porch and the location to town (which is a throwback to old USA). And like I said it was clean and comfortable.
- 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
