By no stretch of the imagination did I think I was checking into the Fountain Bleu Hotel, so my expectations were mainly for the beach, nice restaurants, a sunset view and for the room to be clean enough to sleep and shower in. That's exactly what I got! If you are going to stay in the hotel most of the... More

You pay for location. This was a great location. Walk out the front door and across the road (minimal traffic) and you are on the sand and ready to jump in the Gulf of Mexico. The room was large but had a small bathroom. Hotel is older but still was nice. Breakfast that was included in price could have been... More

The employees (including the manager) are incredibly rude! Stayed here this past weekend because I had reserved through a third party booking based on the pictures and reviews, which are all completely deceiving, and I do believe they are planted and false!!! The room we were given was so dirty and run-down I was afraid to catch something the whole... More

I stayed at the hotel over the holiday weekend and had no issues at all...and I'm not a employee which a recent reviewer said does all the reviews. What cracks me up about these most recent reviewers from the July 4th holiday is there reasons for not likeing the hotel are in black and white. Like having 2 cars............duh the... More

I made the reservations months before our arrival by calling the hotel directly. Due to a work schedule, my young daughter was going to have to leave a day before us. I asked about parking a 2nd vehicle, I was told it would be all right but there would be an extra fee of $10 per night. I called the... More

Beachview Inn made my 4th of July unpleasant for 2014. I felt like a sucker when I gave them my hard earned money. They tricked me into signing paperwork before I even seen my room but I naively trusted Beachview Inn that I was in good hands. As soon as I saw my room I wanted to get my money... More

There is nothing good about this old dirty motel. The good reviews are definitely planted by the staff. There is no way a human would stay here. The staff is so rude. The Manager is lazy and doesn't do her job. We were given room 508. Not only is it incredibly small but the filth was intolerable. Found a tack... More

Two of us stayed at this hotel over spring break last year and was very satisfied with our stay. It is located on the beach (you do have to cross the street to get to the beach, but most things around us were the same way). If you are looking for something affordable, not too fancy, but clean, this is... More

Our family of 5 stayed for 5 days in a suite, which was a little cramped, but we weren't in there much anyway and we weren't expecting 5 star accomodations. Excellent value for being just across from the beach and having an amazing view, especially at sunset. Also had a nice deck facing the beach. Only a few minutes' walk... More
