“Great Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We picked Carrabelle out on the map as a stopping point on our road trip to Texas. Knowing nothing about the town or surroundings, we were thrilled to find a side of Florida we had never seen before - and our stay at the Old Carrabelle Hotel made the stop worthwhile. A comfortable room, great breakfast and good company made this little gem a place we will remember.

The mutual admiration continues between our Forgotten Coast (the Hotel in particular) and our European visitors. Since Europe has limited coastline availability and unlimited people who want to go there, we are a breath of fresh air--literally.

Thank you for your kind words, and send your friends! We have plenty of room.

We highly recommend the Old Carrabelle Hotel as the place to stay in Carrabelle, FL. There are no 4 lane highways nor restaurant waits in Carrabelle, so if that is what you want, stay on I-10. Carrabelle in general and the Old Carrabelle Hotel in particular are remnants of Old Florida, graceful and unhurried. We have stayed numerous times at the Old Carrabelle Hotel and highly recommend it. Call Skip and Kathy and give it a try. Breakfast at the 2 Al's Café (which is included in the package) is great too.

We travel a lot a get quite bored with standard motels and wanted somewhere different to stay en-route to New Orleans. Carrabelle township in December is definitely different but does have a little gem in the Old Hotel. The Hotel has all the little quirks expected of a B&B, the rooms are fine, we had no trouble sleeping and having breakfast at 2AL's was a fun was to start the day. We only saw one of the inkeepers briefly but they obviously enjoy what they are doing. We'd stay there again and recommend it.

Room Tip: They all seem OK.

For single travelers or couples, this place is unbeatable. From location, to hospitality and cleanliness, there is nothing to complain about. It was not a problem when we stayed, but I can imagine that in high season it could get a little louder since it's close to the main east/west drag along the coast, but if you are a light sleep, simply ask to stay on the side of the house away from the street. The owners are super nice and accommodating. Anyone looking to stay in a sleepy little fishing village on the beautiful Florida coast within miles of some of the most beautiful beach locales in the state, The OCH is a great jumping off point and it is so close to the forest I actually saw a bear run across the street on my way out of town!

Love the comfort and convenience here and I have stayed with Skip and Kathy many times in the past. I lived here in Carrabelle during the World War 2 when I was a little girl and my Dad was Postmaster of the base (Camp Gordon Johnston). Each year I try and return to the reunions that are being held here and I so look forward to my stay at this B&B. It is like coming back home again. The breakfast on the beach at Two Al's is always a treat.

Miss Vivian celebrated her 11th birthday here during WWII, and a German POW even baked her a cake!

His name was Hermann, and he would also stay here with us. Unfortunately, his time on this earth ended a few years ago and we all lost another fascinating glimpse into history.

Since she gets younger each year, we expect to see her for many years to come and we will always look forward to the veterans reunion weekend in March and Miss Vivian's visit.

You will find very comfortable setting and $ value at this bed and breakfast. Carrabelle is the forgotten coast new key west state of mind. This is a must stay B&B if you are traveling down the panhandle.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Old Carrabelle Hotel in Carrabelle, Florida is a "Key West style inn on The Forgotten Coast". Once the end-of-the-line railroad hotel, now you may enjoy all the modern comforts in an Old Florida casual atmosphere. There is just something about the experience of a 1900-ish inn at the coast (or a coastal cottage at the coast) that no newer motel-hotel can equal. And we are a very different B&B operation - free beach restaurant breakfasts for Hotel guests, and self check-in -- just for starters. Make your own reservation online, and receive back a confirmation with all the info you may need. Don't Expect: traffic lights, lots of people, McHamburgers, bungee jumps or late-night noise. Do expect: the best seafood, eco-activity opportunities in every direction, cultural/historical activities and a lot of peace and quiet time on the property, in the forest or on the beach or water! ... more   less
