We arrived after our 8 hour drive at 2:30 am, might I add hotel was not full. Room had the worst smell you could ever imagine. We felt more comfortable pulling the sheets completely off the bed in order to sleep on it. Waken up at 7am to banging right outside our room due to construction. Did I mention hotel... More

It's no 5 star hotel, but it was clean and the staff were very helpful. When we arrived the deadbolt was broken, the shower curtain didn't fit and we didn't have a key to our safe. We told the front desk worker and in a matter of hours it was all fixed! Nice little hotel. I'd definitely stay here again.

Ok where to begin, I came down here with my family for the weekend and we picked this hotel because it was on the beach. Being on the beach is the only positive thing I can say. The hotel is very outdated as I imagine it's 40 plus years old. It stinks like mildew throughout the entire hotel. The rooms... More

People I truly don't recommend this hotel it's more like a motel !! It smells disgusting specially in the hallways and sheets!! They are over priced for the accommodations!! Management is the worst!!! Moldy and disgusting are the two words that describe the garbage hole!!

Before I started writing, I sat for a while trying to think of something positive. I took a while. The pool area was clean and well maintained. There, that's it. We have stayed at this location before but it has been at least 5 years. I believe it used to be an Econo Lodge. The beach is gone! Washed away.... More

DIRTY, MOLDY,Health Inspector needs to take charge. Day Manager and Night manager would not give me my money back. I prepaid for 3 nights thru Hotel.COM and stayed not even a full day. I was there from 3 Am to 10 AM and they would not give me my money back at least 2 days. I booked thru Hotel.com. Never... More

My family and I stayed here for a week and didn't want to go home. It's location is perfect. The rooms are clean with great views of the ocean. The beach is so peaceful and clean. Everything about this hotel was perfect. I would recommend staying here to everyone.

To start off the guy at the front desk is very rude. On the phone and in person. The hotel is ok. It has a small beach that you share with all the jet ski/ boat rentals from shepards. The hotel carpet was gross and smelled I refused to let my kid walk around without shoes the balcony door would... More

We stayed here in May around Mothers day and found it a very nice hotel but in need of a revamp. The staff were excellent, especially Al at reception. The pool area was really clean with plenty of sun loungers. Only thing is a construction site next door !!!! We didn't hear any noise to be fair but it had... More

The Gulfview Hotel is an older yet reasonably priced hotel. We have stayed there multiple times over the years. Located on the inlet with a pool, hot tub and small sand beach it has rooms with either a “city view” or partial gulf view. Up until last year, they provided a light continental breakfast of pastry, coffee and juices. They... More
