My family and I returned to the Gulf Beach Inn for the 2nd time this year. We absolutely love this little place. We stayed in a larger king suite this time that included a kitchenette with a small stove. Plenty of room for the entire family. Close to everything. We didn't drive the entire stay.

Last minute trip with my husband. Clean room, Air conditioner worked great, sheets were clean, mattress was comfy, towels were fresh, Pool was packed with kids but after dinner time noise level calmed down. Overall stay was great for the price.

Amazing what 6 months makes! Since late last year, the Gulf Beach Inn is pleasantly under new management. The new staff members are very personable, extremely helpful, responsive (via email and onsite) and more professional than ever. For first-timers, you have to realize this isn't the Hyatt Regency. It's not low class... it's just a typical, small beach town hotel,... More

Rooms were clean when we checked in. Didn't clean room 1 day and no towels another. The additional room that was booked experienced the same thing. Wifi didn't work in room. Water pressure and hot water were lacking.

The staff was great! We joked around & had fun, even though she admitted she was a little stressed about getting ready for the upcoming spring breakers! While a little dated, the room was clean & warm (it was in the 40s). They allowed us to check in a few hours early. We will definitely stay there again. Nice accommodations... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and towels new. The rates are reasonable. The only thing I would fix is the pool needs to be heated. The pool was very clean but to cold to use.

We checked in at 8pm on 12-30-14. The room did not have a trash can, was dirty, had no toilet paper and only one set of towels for two people. We talked with the front desk staff when we checked in and were told it would be fixed by morning. We finally got towels the next night but nothing else... More

I stayed at the Gulf Beach Inn for a quick overnight stay for New Years Eve so that we wouldn't have to drive home after a fun filled night at Shephards nightclub. Honestly, I was just thankful to find such a good deal and in such a close proximity to where we planned to go that night. I really had... More
