We stayed here one night on our road trip. This is a classic motel, however it has been kept in excellent shape. There were no funny smells and our room was very neat and clean. The beds were comfortable and had decent linens. The towels were also nice and not worn out plus there was soap and body lotion etc. to use, which I always apreciate.
There is the usual breakfast with cornflakes, yoghurt etc. but surprisingly they alsp had a hot portion with omelettes, sausages and waffles.
The motel is well located and you can't really hear the road, so the only thing that could disrupt your sleep is actually the AC, that can be very loud at times.
I would definetly recommend this place and stay here again, if passing through.

We stayed here for 5 days and loved it. My wife has MS and has special needs and they were more than helpful ! The breakfast was good every morning ( thanks MARY ). The front desk people were very friendly and had a lot of local info . The room was only $89.00 and the beach is just down the road. The rooms were well maintained and cleaned very well. They have a pool and washer/ dryer on the west side. Laundry fist $ 1.50 I think. Flat screen tv, frig, microwave. Loved it!!!

While the Best Western Apalach Inn is an older exterior corridor style hotel, the owners have done a great job of keeping the facility in good shape. Our room was clean and came furnished with a micro/fridge, king size bed, flat screen TV, good WiFi, and a table with two chairs. The room itself was spacious but the bathroom is smaller than it should be. They have a clean outdoor pool and picnic area a few steps away from the hotel. Breakfast was great although the seating area can get crowded. The staff at the Apalach Inn were amazing. The front desk called me after checking in to make sure the room was to my liking. Their location is great as you are about 15 minutes to St. George Island and 20 minutes away from Cape San Blas and Port St. Joe. The Apalach Inn does have a few negatives such as a higher noise level due to it being an older hotel, a mattress that was a little worn out, and their rates are a little high considering their location. Overall, the Apalach Inn is a great choice when staying in the Apalachicola area; I would have no problems staying there again.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the second floor. The rooms are not insulated well so noise on the ground...

They were awesome! I said it was my friends birthday and they actually decorated the room. There were balloons, a card and more. The best were the fresh baked cookies they made for us. The room was an ordinary room but the staff made it a great stay! PS great fluffy pillows

The room was nice, but had a small bathroom. Overall, I felt comfortable in my room. It did take a while for the air conditioning to cool the room down. One of our beds had a mattress that was sunk in a bit in the middle. The room was clean, and breakfast was good.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and neat. Not too dated but not new either. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. The attendant paid very careful attention to keeping the dining area stocked and CLEAN. We were 10 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from grocery, pharmacy, restaurants, etc.
