The minute we were informed, we took immediate action to eliminate any possibility of a problem. Like other quality, vigilant hotels, we have a five-step program to prevent bed bug outbreaks. But, should a new guest introduce a bug to a room through their luggage...More

Love everything about the Inn! Staff is always so friendly and helpful. Wonderful place to relax and spend a quiet weekend rocking on the wrap around porch. Murder mystery weekends at the Inn are also alot of fun!

About
Description
The Gibson Inn is a fine example of Florida "Cracker" Architecture. This was the style of wood frame structure used widely in the 19th and early 20th century in Florida. These homes and businesses are More characterized by metal roofs, raised floors, high ceilings, center hallways, and large wrap around porches. A widows walk and cupola crown the tin roof, all a reflection of the area's steamboat past. Built in 1907 of native heart pine and black cypress, the inn soon became known as a first class luxury hotel and was the only one between Pensacola and Jacksonville heated entirely by steam. Now listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Places. Many of the 30 guest rooms are uniquely appointed with authentic antique furnishings, cable TV, telephone, and wireless internet. Each guest room has its own full private bath. Less

I'm not AAA. I do not know what they honor. A quick phone call would find out.

If you're the first one there! :D There is street-side parking, but it is not "ample." Aside from maybe 6-8 parking spaces along side the hotel, one has to walk from 25-75 yards to reach one's car.
