We have 3 boys and the pool area is perfect for them and us. The rooms are clean and plenty of bath towels. We stayed in the apartment which has lots of room and kitchen had everything we needed ( dishes, soap, silverware, etc). The office staff and the housekeeping are super sweet. We had such a great, relaxing weekend... More

Recently remolded with fresh paint, windows and bedding it is a big improvement from a couple of years ago when I stayed there. Rooms were for the most part clean and orderly. Although I can say that the furniture has not been moved, at least in our room, for a while to be cleaned behind. WiFi was very slow and... More

Spent 5 nights here a week ago..during peak travel season . Cleanliness to the Max. My Mrs...felt right at home as son as she entered our room and smelled Bleach from the bathroom and the fresh bed sheets. Peak season commands a high selltut rate for local hotels and some can lower their standards knowing you have little recourse. Gem... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms! very comfortable for a short or long stay. The apartment room would easily make a great vacation stay for a family. Great food nearby and quick access to the beach! Staff are wonderful, the owner is on site. It really looks like a Gem, white balconies, sea shell blue, pool,... More

Our friends found Gem Coast for us on short notice -- what a great find. The location is excellent -- you can be at the beach in only a few minutes. The rooms are very large and have been nicely refurbished. Everything was very clean, and the amenities are of good quality. Even though we were on the road side,... More

At first we were not sure about this hotel in Englewood, but because it was a quite large room in the back and very quiet, we decided to stay. We did, for four days! The reception folks were not particularly helpful, just did their jobs. The place filled up and was remarkable quiet all the time! It is in a... More
