“my favorite hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

This wonderful suite hotel is one of the best we ever booked. Located in a charming small town and very quietly situated on the water, this is truly an outstanding place to stay . All suites have large balcony with superb view of the Apelachicola River and the adjoining marshlands. The beautiful rooms are very spacious and like the kitchen fully equipped (washer and dryer). With 2 bathrooms, huge beds, beautiful wooden floor and furnishing, 2 television, private screened huge balcony its perfect for a great stay! The small village is nice to visit, with some very good restaurants within a few minutes walk from the hotel. The building next to the hotel is indeed an old fisherman's wharf, but thats old florida. Nature is wonderful and we liked visiting some islands nearby to take some (bird)pictures. Rooms are very clean and quiet. The hotel itself has no restaurant. A small breakfast is already in the (huge) fridge, but buy some grocery at the supermarket and you enjoy even more this wonderful suite with great and very clean kitchen/bar. Also the marine services and jetty looked very good, although it was very quiet when we were there. Many guests are repeaters so we heard and we want to come back too...
Try to book a floor on the top floor with even a more beautiful view, we had room 206 on the second floor and loved it. 10 out of 10 !!

Room Tip: room 206 & 306 is huge, but the rooms aside are even larger...

We had a wonderful stay in the Water Street Hotel in early March. We had an especially warm welcome from Nedra who could not have been more helpful. She helped to make our visit an exceptional stay!

The rooms were beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. We had a beautiful river front two bedroom two bath with full kitchen and screened patio. Beautiful wood floors and lovely furnishings.

It is a wonderful place from which to explore this region

Room Tip: We didn't have children so can't comment on kids activities. We ate in the town.

After an awful night at the wyndham bay point in panama city beach, we decided to leave and drive into apalachicola. We came upon the Water Street Hotel. It was heaven. We had a beautiful river front two bedroom two bath with full kitchen and screened patio. Beautiful wood floors and lovely furnishings. Very clean. We loved it and will absolutely go back. The town itself was charming and very dog friendly. Our little cockatoo was welcome at outdoor restaurants and even allowed in stores. I highly recommend it.

If you are a boating person this little hotel in Apalachicola is perfect place to dock and spend the night. Walking distance to restaurants, oyster bars, stores. Views of the river and St George are beautiful. The rooms are very spacious with full kitchens and balconies. There is a pool onsite, plenty of parking and we were able to bring our dogs!! We will be back!

Room Tip: Top floor on the western corner is the way to go for sunset!

We've stayed at the Water Street twice and recommend it as one of the best places on the Gulf!! The rooms are clean and the view is beautiful! Also, if you need a pet friendly place to stay this is spot.

We stayed here a couple years ago and now we are going back! Was able to get the last suite available for a gathering of folks interested in keeping our rivers safe. Love this town. Loved the views from the balcony of our suite. Was able to take beautiful photographs of river scenes and sun rises.

We stayed here for two nights in February 2013 based upon the trip advisor reviews. This is a small 'town', with not a lot of hotel options. Reviews for some of the older properties on Trip Advisor were "mixed", so we went with this one which had good reviews .... We were not dissapointed.

There are differant sizes and configurations of rooms in this 3 story property. Ours was at the far end on the 2nd floor and it was larger than we expected it to be. We had a very large liviing / kitchen room with doors that opened out onto a large screened in balcony. Our bedroom was seperate and was good size with king poster bed with doors that opened out onto the same balcony. The 2nd bedroom was small with bunk beds, but it did have a seperate / 2nd bathroom.

The hotel is located at the end of a street that runs parallel with a canal. There are some "beat up" buildings next to it, but the hotel itself is very new looking. I think it was built just a few years ago. The backside of the hotel, where the pool is located, is next to a quiet marshy looking area.

Parking is adequate - with a small lot directly adjoining the property, and a 2nd lot about 100 feet away - we had no trouble finding parking spaces.

If you have lots of luggage they do have luggage carts, but you have to walk the cart up a long ramp from ground level near the pool to get the cart and bags up to the 2nd floor - there is not direct access to the elevator from the ground level.

On the Canal side of the hotel they have a boat dock, and there were a number of large boats docked there during our stay. This made for a picturesque view from our screened in balcony. In addiition to the dock and canal, you can see quite a distance away to a water / marsh area that has some limited boat and barge traffic - very quiet and nice looking. I don't think it's possible to get a great "sun set" viewing from the rooms, but early in the morning the sun rise is nice on the canal side.

Overall great place to stay - highly recomended.
