Spacious, Comfortable River Side Stay

Posted Mar 12, 2017
Pros: Dog-friendly, spacious, clean and neat!
Cons: Everything was great!
We were exploring a part of Florida beach lovers seldom visit and found a great place to stay with our 2 Welsh corgis! The room - or should I say "suite" included a living room, lovely bathroom and a separate bedroom that accommodated a king size bed with plenty of extra space. Nice and clean and neat and comfortable! Great value and convenient for those boating or fishing on the river or the Gulf. If your in Steinhatchee - be sure to book your stay at the River Inn.

Thank you for the kind remarks. Many guests enjoy the bright stars at night, bird watching and of course scalloping in the summer. Please come back again.

Quaint little place, dated, didnt match reviews

Posted Mar 2, 2017
We decided to stop here because the ratings made it sound like a gem and would be worth the extra distance off our route. One reviewer called him/herself an airline pilot who stated that this was one of the best places found in a 30 year career of multiple hotel stays. I would assume this person was a bush pilot. This unit was a little dated, quaint, drive up to the door type of place that reminded me of places I stayed as a kid on road trips. The room was clean, the linens were clean, the woman in the office even called us personally on our way to give us check in details. But the unit was nothing special. We were just a little disappointed.

Thank you for staying at the Steinhatchee River Inn. I am glad to hear you were pleased with the cleanliness of the room. Steinhatchee is indeed a country / coastal community nestled amid nature preserves. I hope you were able to enjoy the stars and many birds not to mention the great fishing.

Thank you for staying at the Steinhatchee River Inn. We hope you enjoyed a taste of "old Florida" during your visit. Next time, be sure to stop in and enjoy Kathy's Crabs offering wonderful seafood dishes captured fresh from our coast, or Fiddlers restaurant featuring a Friday night all you can eat buffet serving prime rid and crab legs - just one block from the Inn ;)

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in.

Posted Jan 8, 2017
Pros: Exceptionally clean. Friendly, competent staff.
Cons: The road sign on the bridge leading into Steinhatchee is missing and needs to be replaced.
Location: I was there for only one night before I had to leave.
I came to Cross City from Miami for a funeral. I needed clean, quiet accommodations close to a restaurant. I spent over thirty years as an airline pilot for a major airline. I flew domestic trips as well as international. I have stayed in many hotels. The Steinhatchee Inn is one of the nicest places I have stayed in.

LARGE AND CLEAN ROOMS

Posted Oct 3, 2016
Pros: LOCATION, FRIENDLY STAFF, LARGE ROOMS
Cons: NOTHING
Location: THIS IS A VERY SMALL FISHING COMMUNITY SO FISHING IS THE MAIN ACTIVITY. WE ATE AT FIDDLERS RESTAURANT AND IT WAS VERY GOOD.

Better than expected

Posted Aug 23, 2016
The room was larger than we were expecting, clean and did not have the slight mustiness found in hotels close to the water. The staff were accommodating and pleasant. Will definitely stay here again.

Older property, aging not so gracefully

Posted Jan 6, 2016
Much older hotel in fair condition. Remember the metal door keys hanging from a plastic card with the room number on it from the 60's? They have it. It's kind of charming, but a little run down and past its prime. Hairs left on shower wall and yesterday's coffee grounds in the coffee maker make it a little less charming. I would not recommend it to a friend. It's location is close to everything, but so is everything. It's a cool old town & every restaurant serves seafood that was, I'm sure, swimming earlier that day.
