we loved staying with you! Our room was small but I assume that was typical in the early 1800s. The people working there were fantastic....Especially Betsy and Evan. If you need reliable wifi you may want to stay elsewhere because It was very iffy

We enjoyed our stay in this old, historic inn. This was our first visit to the area and the hotel had been recommended by friends. The Inn has been preserved with updates that maintained the Inn's authenticity. Zanna and the staff were welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast is light fare. We also recommend eating at Gormley's restaurant.

We spent a weekend here at The Gibson Inn during one of their murder mystery weekends. We absolutely loved it! Not only was the event fun but the accommodations were perfect! Our room was clean, comfortable, and the attention to detail was excellent. We will certainly be back!

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...

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
