We have stayed here 3 or 4 times in past years, and it looks a bit different this time - for the better. Our room was a handicap one on the ground floor. Please note that even though this hotel has a second floor, there is not an elevator, just stairs. Our room was large with a comfortable king bed, a sofa bed, cocktail table, desk and chair, a stand that holds the microwave and small fridge. The carpet appeared to be fairly new. The bathroom was wheelchair accessible with plenty of grab bars. However, it had a tub/shower combination, not a walk-in shower. They did provide a large portable bench for the tub, which I didn't use because it would have filled the tub area, making it difficult to get into the tub and sit down. A small shower seat would be better. The hose on the hand held shower head needs to be longer. The soap, shampoo and towels were great.
Every part of the room and bathroom was very clean and the AC worked fine.
Our room was on the pool side of the hotel. On our stay, only one man used it, so it was quiet. There is a deck type seating area next to the pool with tables and chairs. That area is nicely designed and stocked with plants.
The facility only has one ice machine, which for every stay we've had at this place has been a problem. At the time of our arrival around 4pm, we were able to get a small ice bucket of ice for our room. When we came back from dinner, there was no ice and we were told at the front desk that it was probably due to someone filling their cooler. The next morning, the ice machine still had no ice. I think that after years of having this unaccommodating issue, you'd think they would get a few more ice machines or figure out how to restrict the ice vending so that ALL guests get ice when needed.
The complimentary breakfast was meager compared to other hotels we've stayed at. Yes, they had the standard waffle machine, the usual juice, coffee, terrible bacon, mini bagels, hard boiled eggs, packets of oatmeal, cold cereal, and more. The woman attending the breakfast area kept it well stocked and clean. However, she kept to the back room and when she was servicing the area, she never smiled, didn't greet guest or offer to help. Not the best way to start the morning. Check-in was cordial and fast as well as check-out.
Overall, I feel it is a little overpriced, but still a decent place to stay one or two nights. It is in a very lovely area and the town of Apalachicola is a hidden gem with a few great restaurants and a wonderful history. less
