“Anniversary trip”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We just returned from a wonderful anniversary celebration at the Coombs Inn. Our room was the Coombs room and it was really nice. Plenty of space and very clean. I have stayed in other B&B's before, but nothing compared to this. We booked on a Groupon and I have to say we were treated very well by the tenants, Donna and Aubrey. The breakfast was great and we felt right at home from the time we walked in.
The only downfall to our trip was the heat went out the two coldest nights of the year (the teens and 20's). The second floor however did have heat and that is where we were warm the first night but was chilly the second night, due to someone on that floor had turned it down to low.
The staff moved everyone there, so that they would be warm, and they did call the air/heat guy as soon as they realized the heat was out and he finally came late one night only to fix and five minutes after he left it brook again! Not a lot to see in the town but a great place to get away for a couple of days. I would return again, we loved it, very relaxing and especially clean.

I love to go to Coombs House in Apalachicola, Florida. My husband and I often spend our anniversary there. We leave our electronics at home and resolve NOT to use the phones unless for emergencies. We know the wireless is there but we enjoy just a couple of days of being "unplugged". The rooms are comfortable, the afternoon fresh cookies and coffee welcome, and fresh breakfasts a wonderful final touch. We like to walk down through the rest of the small town, dine on the river front, and enjoy the slower pace.

Room Tip: We were in the Tupelo this last stay and while the extra windows were wonderful to look out, the str...

Coombs House Inn is a delightful historic house in the very pretty town of Apalachicola. Everyone was really friendly and helpful with information about restaurants. Check in was very easy.The breakfast was superb and our room was perfect - a really good size and excellent value. I only wish that we could have stayed longer.

This property is lovely for simple relaxation. We happened to be passing through Apalachicola on New Year's Day so everything in the community was closed. The inn was still cleaning up after a big party the night before so they were not really ready to receive guests at 3:00. Nevertheless, we had a quiet and restful night with a good meal at Up The Creek Raw Bar. Do not count on much for breakfast. Everything they serve is prepackaged and very ordinary. Disappointing for an otherwise fine inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs that opens onto a balcony. Very lovely in warmer weather. There is street no...

We loved our room and found the area very interesting. The breakfast experience was a bit lacking as the service was slow and food was boring with skimpy portions. The " happy hour " also lacking with skimpy refreshments offered. We stayed for two nights. A great place ,but needs work on their food and service departments.

My wife and I stayed at the Coombs House during the days following this past Labor Day Holiday. We checked in late and they made it very convenient to check in. They gave us dining suggestions and we found them to be very accurate. They had bicycles that we used to tour the town. The graveyard across the street was fascinating. The room was cool which was great because it was hot in Florida at the time. Our breakfasts were great. The employees were wonderful. We used the bikes and beach umbrellas which came in handy.
There was some road noise in the morning, so we were glad to be on the opposite side of the highway.

Room Tip: The room in front off the street was perfect.

Stayed here for a friend's wedding, nice ladies running the house and check-in process. My room was not immediately ready at my check-in time due to a miscommunication but I took another room for one night to make it easier for everyone and the staff gave me a bottle of wine.

Also, the breakfast was great, the beds were comfortable and Kate Upton once stayed here! I would recommend this place to other visitors of Apalachicola.
