We booked the Gulf Motel extremely last minute. Drove by, saw a vacancy sign, and decided to stop in. We were able to get a room during spring break. The hotel is not directly on a beach, but is just a few feet away from a beach access #24. Our room faced the main street and had two queen size... More

I understand when older Motels are old and they try to keep them clean. Tonya was very helpful and kind, friendly and available. With all that said, I was pretty disappointed. Unfortunately, at this time of year, prices are outrageous and I had a budget. Pool had three chairs and was stuck between two buildings where there was not room... More

I've stayed at other places he's been involved with, so I was happy and relieved to see him here( I know the place is clean). He showed me... More

This motel is more like efficiency apartments. My bed was so comfy and the room was spotless clean with a strong scent of bleach. There is no phone, no ice machine and no free packs of coffee for the in room coffee makers. The store is walking distance away to buy your ice and coffee. The management has you take... More

My husband and I stayed here Valentine's weekend and we brought our two dogs with us. We had a really nice stay. The rooms were very clean and the dogs were very welcome. They were even allowed to sit with us at the pool bar while we enjoyed cocktails with Michelle and Tom, the managers. The first night that we... More

Horrendous experience, Booked from information on their web site, place was horrible, dirty, noisey, poor air conditioner, out dated bedding and furniture. Looked like any decent wind would blow the siding off the place. Staff was non attentive. Did have entertainment watching spring breakers jumping off second floor balcony into the small pool. The only positive aspect was this dump... More

Never again! The place is run down and almost everything has to be reparerad in some way! No cleaning no service at all. The pricing was as a luxurie hotel but that was only luxurie thing! I think they have close this place and do something else! Close to beach, thats all!
