We needed a quick place to stay and at the last minute booked at the Buena Vista Motel in Mexico Beach Fl.. It is a small, older, well maintained, fun place to stay. Right on the water, and they provided 2 beach chairs and an umbrella. Most restful time. We will go back again!

On a "beach getaway" this week. Selected this place because of location, and the fact that it is a locally owned property. All in all, very happy with my selection. The room was pretty clean. It had all of the basics I was looking for. There are some maintenance issues which need to be addressed, but it looks like the... More

This 6 room hotel has a spectacular location, right, smack, dab on the sandy beach. The Gulf is steps from your front door. The owner is a really, nice man named Mike. The room rates were very reasonable. In addition to owning the place, it appears Mike also does all the room cleaning, stocking and possibly maintenance himself. Nothing wrong... More

This is a quaint little motel. It was very clean and we had a great view from our room. It's right on the beach with a well-stocked, affordable grocery across the street. You can't beat the price. The only real negatives were that the beds were hard and the parking was slim.

We stay here every year for 3 or 4 nites as we love being right on the ocean and having a clean cozy room. This past December our 4 nite stay ended up being an unexpected two weeks as my better half became extremely ill on our second day. Steve was taken to Bay Medical and underwent emergency surgery. He... More

We were at Buena Vista end of January for two nights-room upstairs. Fantastic view and nice clean room. The people were super nice and we will be back-hopefully in couple of weeks while passing through Mexico Beach on way home. Couldn't ask for better motel for the price!!

Great motel nestled on mexico beach, even though it's only a six room motel the rooms are fairly big. All rooms have two beds about the size of a full sized bed, a mini fridge, a microwave, coffee maker no sugar or cream, tv's with dish network. Mike the owner is a jolly laid back fellow and helpful with anything... More

This little quaint motel was perfect for our vacation. The location is to die for. We were very impressed by the cleanliness. The room was big and bright. We loved everything about this place. The owner Mike was super friendly and even walked down to the beach to help unhook a shark my husband caught. The fishing right off the... More

Simple decor with a make yourself at home atmosphere. The view is amazing and right on the beach. Grocery is across the street and most everything you need is in walking distance. If you want the night life/more activities, Panama City is only 20 miles away. Can't wait to go back.

I just loved the location of the motel, right off the beach.....just like you see in the movies. Staff is excellent and very friendly. Buena Vista is walking distance from grocery store to restaurants. My only complaint is cleanliness (roaches !!!!) and the uncomfortable beds. I hope the owners will take necessary actions to make the place clean and then... More
