A comfortable place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. I asked for a AAA discount but not sure that I got it (not stated as such on the invoice). There were 3 choices for breakfast each morning for the two days we were there. My wife noted that the coffee was weak so she bought extra from a...

Coombs House is a lovely property staffed with very friendly folks. The location is perfect for wandering around Apalachicola, the welcome is true Southern hospitality, and the porch with rocking chairs is enticing. We highly recommend this inn if you're looking for a personal touch.

I wanted to like the Coombs Inn. I really did. When my wife and I travel, we like to stay at B&Bs. So we have some appreciation of what to expect. Probably my biggest complaint is the bait and switch technique that they use. Here is a copy and paste from their website "The Coombs Inn & Suites is a...

We initially arrived at the Coombs Inn - a large beautifully restored home where we learned we were booked into their annex - into a room that smelled strongly of Pinesol detergent. It was upstairs - and I have replacement joints and did not look forward to climbing non-code stairs several times a day. So we changed rooms for an...

Thank you for your comments. The Coombs Inn & Suites apologizes that your stay was not what you expected. As with any old building, there are sometimes creeks that are unable to be prevented. As Apalachicola is in a somewhat remote area, the cable and internet can be spotty, there is, however, a project to bring fiber into the area...

The room was very small and freezing cold. Our room was tucked away under a stair case, which I didn't like at all. We could hear people walking up and down the stairs very loudly, throughout the day and night. We we're given a room that is reserved for handicapped guests, which neither one of us are. There were other...

We appreciate your feedback. Coombs Inn & Suites is dedicated to making every guest experience a positive one. Since we have limited rooms at Coombs Inn & Suites, guests are placed in a room based on length of stay, availability, etc. We try very hard to accommodate every guest’s room request, but it is not always possible. If we are...

The bottom line up front is that there was a lack of cleanliness in the room that was borderline disturbing. I wanted to be thrilled with the Coombs House Inn, but, sadly, I was not. We had massive dust and mold buildup on all of the vents along with grossness around the inner rim of the toilet from the previous...

I was married at the Coombs 2 years ago and it was beautiful! The staff was amazing! We rented out most of the hotel for mine and his family. I also came back last year for my anniversary and it was great!

The managers and staff are excellent, they stayed for our late arrival our first night. The accommodations are first-rate, small room but very clean and neat. The town is small but has many things to do and see. Very convenient to the other resorts.
