“The Best of Apalachicola”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

This was a short stay for business so we were looking for a one night accomodation. Apalachicola is truly one of our favorite small towns. The quaintness and relaxing atmosphere was felt in the hotel as well. We made a new friend of the Hotel Management/Desk Clerk.(see picture below) She was so helpful. The facilities were first rate. Our third floor room had a wonderful screened balcony overlooking the bay. We had a view of the marsh grass, the wildlife and the boats coming into the marina. The room was quiet and comfortable with kitchen facilities if you desired to eat in. A glass of wine was complimentary in the hotel lobby. This little hotel is a five star in our book! Thanks, Nedra, for a great night.

Room Tip: Top floor, bay side has great views of marsh grasses and wildlife!

This hotel really should earn excellent reviews.
We stayed in 308, a superb two-bedroom suite overlooking the water, with high-quality furnishings, comfortable beds and every possible convenience you need for a relaxing stay.
The front desk was helpful and friendly, putting us in touch with Robinson's Brothers, an agency which in turn booked us Captain John who picked us up from the marina outside in his boat and led us on a successful half-day fishing trip.
So far, so great.
But then the Water Street Hotel and Marina lets itself down with a tacky piece of cheapskating.
An envelope begging for gratuities for housekeeping is left in the room. Not just for your house-keeper who is named on the envelope but all house-keeping ( " Since your Room Attendant may change during your visit,Management suggests that any gestures of gratuity be left in this envelope and placed at the Front Desk. " )
200 bucks a night and begging for tips ? Pay your housekeepers a decent wage and allow guests to leave whatever tip they feel like in whatever manner they wish without thinking they need prompting like idiots.
It's why this review which should have been Excellent is only Very Good.

I was lucky enough to stay at the Water Street Hotel for 5 days during the annual Plein Air Paintout prior to joining my family for the remainder of our vacation. This was my 3rd stay over the last few years and once more the Water Street exceeded expectation. On this occasion the floor plan I booked included a king master on the creek side which shared a huge screened porch with the living room. This floor plan includes a day bed and room which while small would certainly be adequate for a child and is adjacent to a second full bath. The king bed was very comfortable and the master bathroom and kitchen were well appointed. I did not use the pool but it and the surrounding area looked clean and inviting. The hotel does provide a muffin, yogurt and fruit cup for those looking for a light breakfast but not wanting to seek out something or prepare anything.

When work demanded that I take time from my sabbatical to take care of necessities I was able to work from the screened porch and enjoy watching the shrimp boats pass. The views at sunrise and sunset are spectacular and a cup of coffee or other beverage enjoyed while taking in this beautiful area are truly soothing to the soul. I enjoyed walking everywhere and while some of the restaurants and shopping are easy walking distance for the able bodied, those that might not be able or might prefer not to walk can request information regarding golf cart rental when you make your reservation. The staff was helpful, efficient and courteous. I honestly cannot say enough good about Nedra. She welcomes with a smile and information or a glass of wine upon arrival should you desire either. Nedra, I want you to know you made my stay there honoring my mothers memory very special. You are a delight and a saint upon this earth.

I look forward to returning.

We stayed here one night while passing through Apalachicola. All the reviews are correct, this place is really nice and quiet. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had dinner at Up the Creek Raw Bar which you can walk to from the hotel. I can't wait to go back for a long weekend.

We are NW Florida natives and we have been visiting Apalach for R & R since the early 1980's. We have stayed at Water Street the past several visits. We try to visit at least twice a year. It's a perfect getaway for all. The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and the kitchen is awesome. Nadra and staff makes you feel right at home. Apalachicola is the place to be.... we will be back soon!

PS: Make sure you check out St George Island State Park....on of our favorite beaches!

We were staying at the hotels docks and my shipmate got sick. He went to the office and rented a suite. The suite turned out to have two seperate sleeping rooms, each had a very nice bath with shower.

There was also a large living room with its own wireless router for Internet. And a bar with stools, separating the kitchen from the living room. It had a full sized refrigerator, stove. Microwave and dishwasher.

The following was partially pecky cypress and they were beautiful.

Both the living room and my room had walk out balconies overlooking the marsh. Both were screened to protect from mosquitoes.

The docks are floating docks which are rare along the waterway but well appreciated. It cost about $1.45 per foot per night.

The suite was as clean as they get. Very good from that as well as overall appearance.

Good seafood is available at Up The Creek bar and restaurant about five minutes walk from the hotel.

The only negatives were the night desk clerk that gave me wrong and then inadequate directions on how to get to the facility by water. Also the facilities for boaters are very limited. Only one shower room to serve male and female boaters. It was also the only bathroom. So plan ahead because there might be a wait.

Nedra gave us a warm welcome as we entered the lobby. She happened to have our reservation in front of her as she was getting our keys ready for when we arrived. Being a local she gave us excellent recommendations on places to eat. The rooms are very nice, clean and spacious. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the screened-in porch and watching and listening to the wildlife...very peaceful. We will be back.
