This was perfect for our needs: relaxing weekend. Four females stayed for the weekend. The room was OK for 2 people, not a lot of storage but adequate for the weekend. It has a microwave and mini fridge and other kitchen items. It was nice to have your own deck area with table and chairs, rooms 20 and 21. We... More

My husband and I live and work in Key Largo and couldn't go far for our 20th anniversary so we decided to spend a few days in Marathon. I went to Trip Advisor and found this place to be the one for us. It was just what we needed. The pool was wonderful and the views were excellant. The white... More

Stayed here four nights in August with my parents and three kids. We both had one bedroom apartments which were more than adequate for our needs. The place is quite old fashioned but I wanted a traditional, laid back Keys experience, not some gleaming, impersonal resort. The grounds were just beautiful. Every night we would sit on sunloungers to watch... More

To be extremely critical...The room (#11) was clean, but not glistening. The grill only worked on one side. The AC was loud, and I was told that this was a good thing, as it drowned out my snoring. You have read all the positive reviews and they are true. If you can live with the above, as I did, you... More

Gulf View is a wonderful mom and pop, old school type resort. This is our seventh year staying there and will return next year. If you are looking for a clean, relaxing, affordable place to stay in the Keys, this is the place.

I grew up in the keys. The GulfView is clean, welcoming, and real keys living. I grew up on Grassy Key. The bed was so comfortable!! Access to the bike trails, the DRC, Marathon, Lowet and Upper Keys is perfect! Everyday it was like coming home. The family is kind and welcoming. Experience the keys and stay in the wonderful...

Stayed there for 3 nights in the beginning of July, including the 4th. So, our first impression was very mixed. We liked the open space and colorful grounds, but were concerned as we walked up the stairs to register and had to dodge old berries on the steps.... They didn't seem to have been swept in days and I didn't... More

My boyfriend and I decided last minute to come to the keys and we got a room here. They allow dogs of all sizes and most rooms had a dog or two in them. The kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats are free and in good shape. We didn't see much when we went out, but it was great for the... More

We had a superb one-night experience at this little place on the Overseas Highway. The accommodations are certainly not modern, but our two-bedroom unit was worked perfectly well for my family of four. It's a clean, well cared-for hotel with nice grounds and an immaculate swimming pool, which we enjoyed using for nearly an hour. We also took the four-person... More
