Reservations were made in advance. Check in was smooth and efficient. Our room was on the third floor and if there was negatives, it would be that there are no elevators, so you must carry your luggage up to the room. However, we were offered help to by the staff. We were in rooms 310 and 311. The rooms were...

Stayed at the Gibson totally by mistake. I was looking at a place on St George Island and somehow ended up booking the Gibson Inn. Actually didn't realize it until we got to the turn off for St George and the GPS took me a different way!!! Probably the best mistake I've ever made. Beautiful old Inn that has kept...

This hotel is wonderfully located in downtown Apalachicola, the staff was very nice, the room was clean, and the toilet worked. However, from the moment we were cast into Room 201, where there was wailing and gnashing of teeth, until checkout, it was like some kind of nightmarish workshop in hotel malpractice. When we arrived, we tried to recharge our...

I’m sorry you did not find your stay with us satisfactory. We value each of our guests, and strive to make every stay a memorable experience. Due to guest allergies, our pet friendly rooms are limited to our 5 veranda rooms. This also makes it easier for pet owners to walk their dogs, as there is a direct staircase down...

My fiancé & I really love everything about the Gibson Inn and would recommend it to anyone wanting a truly relaxing, quiet and fun place to get away. This hotel was built in 1907 and comes with an abundance of charm! We love the wrap around rocking chair porches, the friendly staff and the unique variation of each of the...

We spent Christmas weekend at The Gibson Inn to relax and kick back. The Inn has been nicely maintained and reflects Old Florida charm, warmth and beauty. The rooms are impeccable, the 2nd story wrap around porch is serene and provides a beautiful view of the City and Bay, and the staff was most inviting and friendly. The Christmas spirit...

We booked last minute for the new year weekend and were lucky to get a room here, especially since they are pet friendly and we had our small pup with us. The Inn is restored, so don't expect luxurious elegance, but you do get updated accommodations. Good technology, plenty of outlets, and nicely appointed bath. Loved the happy hour in...

This was our seventh visit in ten years. The service just keeps getting better and better. Sharon, Zanna, Brittny, Kimberly, Shawn, Ron, Betsy - everyone from the innkeepers to the front desk to the restaurant (Gormley's at the Gibson - also five stars) to the housekeeping and the bar staff - they all work together and obviously like working there...

We went to Apalachicola for the day and decided to stay the night. I am glad we did! Luckily, Kimberly at the front desk was able to quickly get us a room at late notice and she could not have been nicer or more helpful. Our room was clean and cozy. Once we settled in, we went down to the...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for the weekend and brought our greyhound along as the Inn was advertised as pet friendly. Although our room was very small it was clean and accommodated our needs. My compliant is that my precious dog fell down 12 stairs and I fell down 5 and was injured. When we reported this...

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. The safety and security of our guests is always our top priority. Please be assured that our outside stairs are covered with a non-skid paint, designed for outdoor use. I apologize if you had the impression our front desk clerk was rude. That was never her intention. She was attempting to...

Fantastic murder mystery weekend!!! I highly recommend doing this weekend to all. We loved it so much, we are going to make it an annual girls event. Rooms were very clean and beds comfy. The staff is amazing so you will not regret staying here while in Appalach.

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
