Beautiful place, not perfect comfort for seniors

Pros: breakfast, people, and beautiful setting inside and outside
Cons: Accommodating senior guests
Location: Oyster City Brewery is terrific, best stout and ale ever tasted. St. George Island park/beach is also a favorite, and some nice shops.
We enjoyed our stay at Coombs hotel, good value thru travelocity, beautiful building inside and out, perfectly clean, and great breakfast in the morning. However, minor notes of discomfort for 70+ age travelers: four poster bed was lovely to look at and comfortable once in, but too high to get into without the little steps beside it, and was afraid of tripping over steps during night-time wakeup calls so moved them. Feared falling. Bathroom ok, good walk-in shower, but very low toilet and no bar or anything to hold onto to help getting up and down, no vanity to hold onto as was a pedestal sink. If we go there again, I will ask for handicapped accommodations, even tho I am not really handicapped, just older and and arthritis as many of us have. Upstairs room also, kind of dark as older homes tend to be, on staircase and could us a rail on both sides of stairs as hard to carry things up and hold on. At checkin, they had us staying 2 nights instead of one, but corrected the billing and cancelled second night ok. Lovely people, beautiful place, walking distance to downtown and to one of the world's best breweries, Oyster City Brewery,Jjust be aware if you have any senior problems that it may not be as comfortable as it is pretty.

Exceeded my Expectations

Pros: The history, the friendliness of the host and her knowledge of the hotel, and the quaintness and cleanliness of the room made it so inviting.
Cons: I can't think of a thing.
Location: I didn't stay long enough to enjoy the beach, but there ere many restaurants and stores within walking distance and it was a pleasant drive.
I was so pleasantly surprised by my stay at Coombs. I hadn't heard anything particularly good about Apalichicola in general, but the experience was delightful and I would stay there again anytime and recommend it to my friends.

Unmet Expectations

Wonderful atmosphere and excellent staff, but disappointing rooms, which need work . In ours the floor was seriously uneven , and lighting was extremely dim. Some light bulbs needed replacement. But the main problem was the lack of insulation , which led to hearing everything from neighboring room guests , and a serious lack of sleep both nights .

Very Disappointed

Pros: Good location, cleanliness, helpful staff. I would still recommend this hotel to the others but not without a warning about the downstairs rooms.
Cons: The website should show the exact picture of the room for each room rate, especially when special low rate is offered.
We booked a deluxe-king room based on the picture we saw online and the special low rate for Tuesday night. We could have gone with the queen but because the king room looks better in the picture, we decided to pay more for the king. Upon checking in, we were told that our room is right next to the entrance door on the first floor. It was not the room we saw online. The staff told us that because we were paying for the special spring rate, this would be the room we get. It was not a bad room but because it was on the first floor and facing the road, we needed to keep the blinds down which made the room dark and depressing. At 10 p.m. we heard people in the room above us walking and dragging their stuff around. The bathroom was tiny but clean. The room was too cold and there was no thermostat in the room. There was no blanket, just a sheet and two bedspreads, I had to also use a bath towel to keep myself warm. The mattress and pillows were nice and clean and comfortable though.

quaint and friendly

Pros: attractive and cozy feeling
We enjoyed our stay at the Coombs. The entire staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfasts served in a lovely dining room were always tasty, and more than enough to send us on another day of exploring the area. Appalachicola is a wonderful little town with plenty of eateries. We recommend a visit across the bridge to the Esturary in Eastpoint to learn about this interesting area. And as we were told, this is a place to slow down, sit back, and relax.
