Funky, but in a good way place to stay

3.8 on May 10, 2017

This is a cute place, seems to be run by former (or not so former) hippies. That's fine by me! Breakfast (included) was fabulous! Our room was small, but we chose it since we were only there one night. Very helpful staff. One downside - they've opened a bar next door so we had loud music playing when we were trying to sleep. Not the fault of the hotel, but definitely a negative.

This is one of those hidden treasures that you always hope you can find. Great place, would stay again if in the area.


Long Weekend

4.2 on April 29, 2017

You are in the woods when your visiting here. And the many beachs are so close. We stayed in the Old Florida room, it had everything we needed. There is a lot to choose from on the breakfast menu as well...We will however bring our bikes next time.


A Hidden Gem

Loved my stay here. Staff are helpful and friendly; the location was is perfect; and I am absolutely thrilled with my visit. Make sure to eat anything the Cafe prepares - everything was fresh and delicious. My only suggestion is that it be open for longer than 11 a.m. I highly recommend this property and can't wait to return.


Charming, quirky, lovely atmosphere and very comfortable

Lovely big room with comfortable bed. Great shared kitchen which was spotless and very well equipped. Fabulous bathroom, best of all the places we stayed in on our tour of the Panhandle. Fell in love with the charm of this place and wished we could have stayed longer than our 2 nights. Great bike ride to Seaside and delicious food at The Chanticleer.

This place is a hidden gem! The innkeeper and staff are lovely people...can't do enough to make sure your stay is perfect. The location couldn't be better...we walked to the beach and restaurants...and the breakfast is superb! Also loved the time and effort that went into the collection of "Old Florida Memorabilia"...brought back my childhood!! Excellent place to stay and enjoy!!


Quick week end getaway

We love staying at the Hibiscus, this was our second stay. This funky little B&B is just what Grayton Beach is all about. We will be back soon.


1 time B&Ber

4.2 on March 23, 2017

All in all... Great weekend trip. B&B...This was out 1st time staying at a B&B. I felt that the rooms were cleaner than at a traditional hotel. We stayed in the Woodpecker. Perfect for 2 people for a couple of days. I enjoyed being detached. It made it feel more private. Fridge and microwave in the room. A fridge and microwave were in the room. Breakfast was wonderful. Portions were plenty. Garden area looked like it was having a bit of a makeover in some places. They had a bike tire pump that helped us from having to go track one down. Now 30A... Great place for just a few days. Not quit enough to do there for an entire week unless you are the type to just relax. I don't have it in me. I like to explore when I am on vacation. We thankfully brought our bikes. It is much easier to bike everywhere than drive in this area. Beaches are clean and gorgeous. Just wish that cars couldn't go on it. It takes away from the experience.


Enjoyed our stay

We enjoyed our stay at Hibiscus. It did remind me of "old Florida". I grew up in Clearwater and this takes me back to that time. The Woodpecker Cottage was very tiny but we enjoyed our stay.
