The rooms are suites and very well appointed! Can easily accommodate a small family! Well stocked kitchen with dining area. Great linens with luxury personal cleaning items. It was a joy to walk into this room.

We stayed at the Water Street Hotel & Marina in February. It's in a beautiful location along the water and the suites are incredible. They are clean, large, well equipped, and have great screened in balconies providing a wonderful view of the waterways adjoining the Gulf. The location provides a comfortable walking distance to everything in Apalachicola, and we found the area interesting to visit. Our only issue was that when we had booked our reservation several months earlier an abbreviated continental breakfast was included in the rate for each morning during our stay. This was supposed to be provided through delivery. When we arrived and asked about this, they told this it had been discontinued. We always try and stay in hotels that include breakfast, so were quite surprised. And, that we had paid for something we did not receive. With the exception of this issue, we enjoyed staying there.

WOW! What a nice room! I hadn't realized we had a condo for a night! The four-poster bed in the master bedroom was a treat, and so was the attached master bathroom. Dow the hall was a small bedroom with a single bed. Next to that was another full bath. There was a full kitchen with pots, pans, plates, glasses, silverware, etc. The sofa was a sleeper bed. There was a screened in porch with table and chairs. The view was sublime! There are wheelchair ramps and an elevator. There is an outdoor pool. The only thing lacking is breakfast, but we knew that going in. All of this is within walking distance of the stores and restaurants in downtown Apalachicola.

Great motel, clean, water views with screened balcony. Well stocked full kitchen and two bedrooms. Beds were very comfortable. There is no breakfast but they provide in-room food (muffins, yogurt and fruit) for breakfast.

Great location along channel into shrimp trawler harbor from bay. The boats pass close, and across channel it goes to horizon with salt marshes full of wildlife: osprey nest , bald eagles, pelicans etc.
Within walking distance of business district in town.
It was our second year staying multiple days.

House keeping has been an issue both stays. The 2 bedroom apartments (2 stories) have not been adequately cleaned both times before our arrival. This year the beds were not made, dirty laundry from previous renters was heaped on floor. This is not a hotel that replaces worn appliances. TV remote we were told did not work, microwave crapped out 2 days into stay, wires hanging down from bottom of fridge (previous year). We expected more for $200/nite .
But what REALLY grated is that it is a non-smoking facility except for 2 designated sites, and you sign separately acknowledging that when you check in. And yet, they do nothing when you complain when a smoker violates these rules and blows smoke across all the porches. I have asthma and got chased off my porch several times.

Great view.....but we won’t be back.

Appalach is not your typical gulf coast tourist destination but the water street makes the experience of walking to dinner in the heat and wandering around the quirky shops band riverfront a great high end stop at the
End of the day. We love the few steps to the beer and oysters and pool at water street. The large rooms and full kitchens and living rooms make an ideal place for our family trips

Handy to several boat landings and we find the boating here the best on the gulf

Don’t go if you want Panama City diversions

We had never been to Apalachicola and chose to visit and splurge. Online, the Water View Resort looked appealing. We reserved Room 302 for three days in May, 2023.

Our disappointment was huge. I have reserved this review for several months to be certain my review contains no emotions. This review is accurate and needs to be shared so you can make decisions accordingly.

We arrived and within the first hour decided to only stay for one night instead of three. Upon advising the Manager of our decision he disagreed with our objections, accepted our request to check-out the next day, and informed us the cost of our one night would be $369 versus our previously agreed $298.24 because we would not be staying all three nights. We were penalized with a rate increase $70.76 because we objected to the following:

1) No convenient place to unload luggage
2) No convenient place to park – only remote parking, which did not feel safe
3) The Water View Resort is literally next door to an industrial gas company (JVB Gas)
4) The guest check-in area had old furnishings and antiquated computer hardware
5) Tired facilities with noticeable deferred maintenance
6) Lights were burned out by elevators (see picture)
7) Flat tire on luggage cart – obvious that it had been flat for a long time (see picture)
8) Supply room door next to the elevator on 1st floor was open and unappealing
9) Ultra slow guest Wi-Fi Internet connectivity
10) Private boats at the resort’s dock with loud karaoke singers
11) Dogs inside a nearby room were howling at the karaoke singers. The dogs were so obnoxious, it was not possible to sit and relax on the porch
12) Porch doors do not close or lock
13) Six drinking glasses – no two were the same size or shape (see picture)
14) Hot water was available in all sinks but no hot water in either shower. After attempting to run hot water in both showers for many minutes, we were forced to bathe standing by the bathroom sink.
15) Bathroom mirror had black edges from excess moisture (see picture)
16) Grout stains by the sink (see picture)
17) Sink stopper literally broken off – no handle in Master Bath (see picture)

It was a very disappointing experience. Choice Hotels states the Water View Resort is part of their Ascend Collection. In my opinion, this “Resort” is Descending. Save yourself from disappointment and frustrations – AVOID the Water View Resort.

It's truly a beautiful location, and we had lots of space to spread out, a screened-in porch facing the water and very comfortable lodging. The first electrical problem we had was in the bedroom. If you plugged anything into one socket, the lights went out and we had to flip the circuit breaker. The next day, when I came back to the room, the kitchen sockets were buzzing like hornets. No, I am not making this up. I was told by the front desk that it was a power surge. As a result, neither kitchen socket worked (we used the Keurig on the floor), nor did either bathroom socket. When I talked with the front desk in person, the attendant seemed rather unconcerned.

We were here 7 years ago and happy to say this visit is just as nice as last. Beautiful suite with plenty of room. Full kitchen stocked really well for all your cooking needs. Two full baths. Two TVs and an apartment sized washer dryer. Several bedroom options to choose from (we have king & 2nd bedroom has a single bed...both have en-suite bath). Beautiful and serene views from your screened-in deck with patio furniture. Couldn’t ask for anything more!

Had a two King suite which was over 350. Expected a functional kitchen; but not even close can opener broken. No cutting n\board or strainer. Dish washer full of rusty broken pieces. Fridge froze all our food and the furniture very uncomfortable.On the plus nicely quiet at night good view off waterway. No Covid protocol hand sanitizers out at elevators, people (gross0 eating food in the pool while w]swimming. Don’t advertise a kitchen if it lacks basic fixtures as it was impossible to cook and there is no dining table so we ate sitting on the sofa.
