Don't stay at this place unless you don't mind loud music blaring through your broken patio door till 3 am. Went down to management to complain and asked for a different room, to which he refused to accommodate at first. Before booking, I was not made aware that Shepards, the beach resort next door would be playing extremely loud and... More

I can't believe the reviews I read were so good of this place.definitely run down. Old. Glass sliding door did not lock. Squeeky beds and very small rooms. Unfriendly, uninformative staff. Do not feel like it is worth one hundred and sixty per night.

Nice little hotel on the beach. Walking distance to restaurants. Private beach area perfect for kids to play. Hotel needs some updating but overall it was very clean and well taken care of. We will stay here again.

Loved the location. Hotel is nothing fancy but was fine for 2 nights EXCEPT for the crazy loud music next door at Shepards. They play loud thumping music until 2-3 in the morning so don't plan on getting much sleep unless you stay on opposite side of building. It's like a night club outside so there is no way to... More

I agree with what other reviewers have written. Staff is helpful and friendly. The Shephards Resort next door has music playing loudly at all hours. If you are a light sleeper, don't stay here. The beach area is small. There are no chairs on the beach either. If you want to stay directly on the beach and save a few... More

I decided to take my 3 kids to experience the florida beach for 5 days and do so without spending a ton of money. I spent hours on end reading reviews, checking out hotels, motels and vacation rentals before deciding on the Gulfview Hotel. I chose this hotel based on its price, its location right on the beach, and trip... More

Staff is very friendly, hotel is clean enough, nothing fancy. Beach is small but private and clean. If you want a place on the beach to RELAX, do NOT stay here. Shephard's Resort next door is a party resort for 20-30 somethings and you will not get ANY sleep until after 3am. The music next door is so loud and... More

We arrived 7/8 departed 7/11. The price was very reasonable for the area. The room was very clean. We only had to ask for washcloths and we had within 5 minutes. The view was great even for a partial view we were on the side by the Shepards Resort and lets just say being able to listen to live band... More

We booked this hotel before we saw it. It was ok. We've definitely had worse. The view from the balcony of the ocean was from the side. There wasn't much beach located directly behind the hotel. We went to Pier 60 to enjoy the beach but the down side of that is we had to pay for parking b/c our... More

Stayed here two nights longer than originally planned because we loved it so much. Wake up early in the morning, go out on the balcony and watch a manatee or two go by. Go downstairs, through the pool area, and step right onto the beach. Manatees came within a foot of us a couple of times. *You can look but... More
