We were quickly ushered down the hall to another room upon calling the front desk about the refrig status. This room had an empty refrig but lacked any tissues in the suite....again another call to the front desk. Then.....in the morning we went...

So, this place isn't right on the beach like I'm used to, but it is very close to it. I enjoyed the large room with plenty of living space and the pool was cool and quiet. The service was great and the breakfast was good.

We stayed in this room for two nights while we visited Port St. Joe and the two state parks nearby. The beds were comfy, plus we had a beautiful sitting area and kitchen. If we had been able to snorkel for scallops it would have been a perfect setup for fixing a feast! The location is out of the town...

Stopped here to meet up with friends who had a house on the beach at Indian Pass. Very nice, clean up-to-date hotel offering a small kitchenette. Reasonably priced for this area and included breakfast offering biscuits and gravy, sausage, pastries as well as a variety of cereals and fresh fruit. Enjoyed a King room, contained a sleeper sofa that was...

We stayed her for two nights in late Feb 2017. The room was very nice and homey. Our dogs were warmly welcomed here. The breakfasts were also very good. We thought this was a great value also. It was also pretty close to Port St Joe and not far from the dog beach.

Stayed here on one night that the Port Inn was booked. Also a very nice place to stay and economical. Driving distance to downtown but a bit closer to the Cape. Nice suite rooms complete with fridge and stove, etc. Standard fair breakfast provided. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and provided me with sufficient aloe vera lotion for a...

It was clean, the bed was new and the staff was courteous. They let us bring our dog. It's certainly not a resort but it met a need for us as we explored the area. We did not eat the breakfast but went in to Apalachicola for brunch. I would stay there again.

The carpet in the room was dirty,threadbare and frayed at the edges. There were broken tiles on the floor in the bathroom. There was damage to the walls too. There were no nets at the windows so, as we were on the ground floor, we had to keep the curtains closed. The Wi-fi was very very slow and kept dropping...

We appreciate you taking the time to review your recent stay with us, as painful as it was to read, we need that honest feedback from our guests. The good new is, we are replacing all of the guestroom carpets, sleeper sofas, and window treatments!! Very exciting for us, and very overdue for our guests. No excuse for the pool...
