Room smelled musty. Not vacuumed. Stairwells dirty. No beach furniture. the door to our room had visible signs of multiple repairs. Not always easy to lock. Staff impersonal. Would not stay there again.

My husband and I wanted a beach get-a-way for a couple of days. I requested gulf view so I was disappointed when I walked in the room and the balcony was facing the hotel next door. It did have a huge window facing the ocean. To our surprise the hotel next door had an outside band and our balcony had... More

We ended up at the Gulfview hotel on short notice, after Thomas Cook had booked us into the wrong hotel, miles away from the beach. We were originally due to stay at the Holiday Inn Suites a couple of hotels down, where we have stayed before. I won't completely disagree with some of the comments previously made, yes it does...

We stayed at the Gulfview Hotel for the first time just this month of April 2015 and was very disappointed. The photos are very deceiving as they are taken from an angle which actually shows more of the beaches of the hotels next door. The pool area is very small as is the beach area. The Hotel itself is very... More

As a local, I have stayed here many times for a mini vacation, on the side that faces I-Hop. This time I could only get a room facing Shephards, so thought I would take some sleeping pills, and get my much needed rest. Was I ever wrong! It seems the music from Shephards is twice as loud here, than it... More

Have stayed in this area for a few days every year before we go to a condo.we like watching the boats go in and out the inlet. The beach is small but the water is calm and the shells are better.we have stayed at most of the motels and this one is the most reasonable.it has a small stove and... More

This was a very nice hotel. The staff were excellent. The room was lovely and well appointed and clean. The pool deck was lovely and the pool heated. A quick walk to the next hotel for food and drink was easy and enjoyable. A nice little beach area with beautiful views. Only a short walk to an IHOP and other... More

It was an average hotel room but the view was great. The staff was nice and our room was clean. The pool isn't heated but it was OK. I spent a lot of time in the hot tub or on the private beach. It is a short walk from many fun attractions and pier 60. If you're looking for good... More

My wife and I booked a 3 night stay here, it sounded great and the reviews looked good, and the price was right. What a nightmare! Next door, literally feet away, a new hotel is being built blocking out all light and views to one side. The building noise starts at 0700hrs and ends at 1700hrs Monday to Friday. The... More
