“Lovely place for a short getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

We conducted a business retreat at the Inn. The staff was accommodating and ready to support our needs. The head housekeeper Lisa brought us coffee into the Board Room for our convenience. Miss Pat's breakfast is amazing. Cheese Grits, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links or patties, biscuits and gravy on the hot bar along with waffles, cereal and continental breakfast offerings gave every appetite options to explore. Miss Pat also cooked eggs to order. The Thirsty Goat reminded me of the hotel bars in Scotland Bed and Breakfasts. Lacey and Nathan were great barkeeps after a day working.

Room Tip: If you want to see the water from your room, ask for a bay view.

We decided to stay in Port St. Joe on our way back from Florida to Kansas. We try to stay in different little towns as possible, each trip. The hotel was very nice and clean. I usually try to get a king bed, but there was not one available for our one night stay (unless I was willing to pay a much higher cost), so we took a room with 2 doubles. That made for a VERY cramped room! But the room was very clean, bathroom very clean, view from window was across from the bay (across the highway) This particular evening there was a huge problem with the cable, so we were forced to watch the only one station we could get!! Not a huge deal, but when you've been driving all day and are anticipating just relaxing and watching TV, kind of a downer. Pool area was small but nice, and there was plenty of parking. Breakfast was very good also. Wish we could have spent more time to explore the shops downtown, which would be within walking distance, but had to get back on the road the next day!

Our family has been staying at the Port Inn for some years now and we all love it. Conveniently located by the public boat ramp is a nice touch as we bring our boat down to enjoy scalloping in the bay. Walk to restaurants, shops, conveniences and more. Highly recommended!!

When we arrived we were greeted with "just to let you know the people that stayed in the room before you were smoking." "We have cleaned the room and opened the windows so if you want to go up and see if it is ok you can." When I asked would they comp another room at the same price he said quickly NO. Not without charging us more money. So not sure what option we had being 5 hours from home. This is ONLY a place to sleep with very little extra.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay with us, but I apologize for the welcome you received. That is in no way indicative of the service we strive to provide, and hope that we have the opportunity to exceed your expectations sometime in the future. If another trip to Port St. Joe is in your future please don't hesitate to email me directly at sales@tappercompany.com so I can make sure we make things right.

This hotel is the best in Port ST. Joe. The head of housekeeping Lisa, the cook Miss Pat, Sarah, Ryan and Lacey treated our family like family. The breakfast cooked by Ms. Pat was fantastic,
Couldn't have been more pleased

Room Tip: All rooms are great

I was here a week ago for a retreat. The rooms are small and the hotel is not modern, but it was comfortable and reasonably clean. Great breakfast. Walking distance to the boat ramp and shops and restaurants downtown. I wish I could have stayed longer to use the complimentary bikes and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of port st. Joe this time of year. I would stay there again!

We arrived after 9pm. Our rate was 129.99 plus all taxes, etc. Our bedroom was small - extremely small. There is no elevator to the second floor. I will say the property is very well maintained. The entire hotel was spotless!! Super clean!!! Complimentary breakfast was included - and OH MY!!!! It was delicious and hot and wonderful!!!!!! Great couples stay but not for small children... in my opinion.
