Not for Us

3.0 on September 05, 2017

We've stayed in many B&B's while traveling and found the room here at Hibiscus to be very tiny. The bed and pillows were not comfortable at all. Just not the right room for us. The location was great and we were able to walk to some wonderful restaurants to the beach for an evening stroll. The walk to the beach is not short if you are carrying chairs/coolers etc. Breakfast was very good each morning in the Hibiscus Cafe and the staff was very friendly.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We are so sorry you didnt enjoy the room. We do have 13 total, including THREE one bedroom apartments and FOUR king sized bedrooms... Maybe next time you can get a larger room. We just replaced quite a few mattresses as well. What did you eat?

Charming refuge minutes from the Gulf

We loved the location in Grayton Beach. There are restaurants, ice-cream and coffee shops, and other stores within walking and biking distance. We rented bikes at the market just down the street. Breakfast is fantastic with many options.

Innkeeper Response
Sounds like you enjoyed being here ??? Thank you SO Much ! Please come back and see us... try us out during the fall. Gives Grayton Beach a whole different vibe than summer.

Great Getaway!!

5 on August 01, 2017

This is the best place that we have found in the Santa Rosa area to stay, because of the coziness of the rooms, the old Florida feel, and the owners or managers make you feel right at home the entire time you are there. The beach is only a short walk away, as is the restaurants near the public beach. There is a general store nearby, and breakfast is served to guests free, which consist of marvelous delicacies!!! Thanks for everything!!

Innkeeper Response
Feeling right at home is our exact intention. Thanks for leaving this review for us ! We are happy you enjoyed your stay here and hope you'll come back and see us :)

Great Experience

4.0 on July 27, 2017

We stayed overnight in one of their rooms and were delighted with the entire experience. We would stay there again without question. The room was neat and clean and orderly and well equipped. Breakfast was provided by the companion coffee house and was very good and the people were very friendly. Just a very nice overall experience.

Innkeeper Response
We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay! Which room did you stay in ??

Cozy, Clean and Quaint

4.6 on July 26, 2017

The facilities were very cozy. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The grounds were fun to explore. Breakfast was a little disappointing. We were told the waffles were Publix frozen (my daughter is vegan). She ordered the oatmeal and it was instant. However, the hibiscus tea was refreshing. We would stay again, just won't plan to eat breakfast there.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the review ! Unfortunately, its very challenging to make Vegan and Gluten Free Items from scratch, in this sort of environment. That's why we have the instant and frozen versions to offer. There are always egg choices, smoothies and fruit concoctions to make up for it..... Next time, let us make you something different :)

Wonderful getaway

5 on July 17, 2017

Everything about our stay at the Hibiscus Coffee and Guesthouse was impressive. From the moment we walked it, we felt like family. The people working the counter in the coffee shop immediately offered us complimentary mugs of coffee and were more than willing to help us figure out things to do around the area until check-in. The room, we stayed in the Hibiscus room was very cozy and much larger than we'd expected. The bathroom was very clean and the claw tub shower was awesome. The little band that was playing behind the coffee shop was awesome and a wonderful way to end the evening sitting on the porch. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. I'd strongly recommend The Scooter for a good, hearty breakfast that will keep you full well into the day, but everything on the menu looked delicious. What was even better, the gentleman working the counter said if we wanted something that wasn't on the menu, he'd be more than happy to make it for us! Outstanding customer service! The beach was only a quick 5-minute bike ride away and much less crowded and peaceful than surrounding areas. We will definitely be returning to Grayton Beach again soon and staying at the Hibiscus when we do.

Innkeeper Response
We are THRILLED that you enjoyed it here ! Looking forward to having you back !! You should try our Barn building (The Romance room and Tropical Bird room) Thanks for taking the time to review us !
