“Charming old Inn in a lovely small town.”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Were there for one night as Seafood Festival goers had all the rooms booked. Loved room "Heaven 11". Beautifully decorated and a fancy bath. Nice staff and good breakfast. Hope to come back some time.

I was delighted with my stay in the Magnolia Room. It was like a trip back in time to stay in this wonderfully preserved home with all the old wood and antique furnishings. The innkeeper and staff were friendly and helpful and made me feel special. Breakfast in the dining room was a culinary delight. The bed was ultra comfortable and I hated to leave. Hoping that I will get to return someday. Apalachicola is a perfect setting for this charming inn.

We stayed in the Coombs Suite, and it was beautiful! Much like the rest of the Inn.
Pros- 1. Service is excellent. Very friendly, courteous and helpful. 2. Great location- you can walk downtown. 3. They honor our troops and offer 10% military discount. 4. Clean and well maintained rooms and bathrooms
Cons- 1. Creaky, old house. Unfortunately we had a very (very) noisy couple staying in the room directly above us. For some odd reason, they kept pacing back and forth late into the night and their footsteps would echo in our room. We could barely sleep the whole night. When we were checking out the following morning, there was another couple that was complaining about the same guests. Bottom line, if you have noisy neighbours, there's no escaping it. The house is old and you can tell.
But overall, two thumbs up.

Room Tip: It might be wiser to pick rooms on the top most floor- it would significantly reduce the risk of noi...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We've been to many inns / B&B's over the years and the Coombs House is by far one of the best. Our room (The Magnolia) was beautifully appointed, the wine & cheese on a Friday evening was a lovely surprise, the breakfast was savory, and everyone who took care of us went the extra mile to ensure our comfort. The inn itself is conveniently located to town and is truly a gem, elegantly restored. Can't recommend it enough. Will gladly return there again.

We had a great visit here to Coombs Bed and Breakfast. The staff, breakfast, room, and location were all great. The lady who checked us in was very knowledgeable about the history of the B&B, the city, and the best places in town to eat.

We were in town for Running for the Bay Half Marathon and received nothing but excellent service. We were able to check in early, received a late check out (so we could shower after the run) and they even provided access to breakfast early so we could chow before the run. Everyone was very accommodating and made our stay seamless. Would absolutely recommend to others.

Lovely room. Nicely decorated. The night we were there a really nice young woman checked us in. She was really helpful and knew a lot about the area. We were there for the marathon and she was very accommodating to our schedule and vegetarian diet.
