I booked this place based on it's many past recommendations, huge mistake! The first room we entered still had dirty linens in the bathroom. They quickly responded by allowing us to change rooms. However, our biggest complaint would be the age and desperate need for updating of the rooms. A simple change of carpet and mattress would suffice. B and B's are suppose to be romantic getaways, create the atmosphere!
- 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
