Althought I spoke to motel staff several times asking about accomodation detials, I was never told about the negatives of this particular room. We love sitting on the balcony at the beach to enjoy the ocean sounds and sea breeze. This was impossible here. The room was just above the pub-cigarette smoke, loud band music and AC unit heat all... More

We stayed here for a few nights. The room had a refrigerator, small stove and a microwave, and was clean and quiet. We had a wonderful view from the third floor. Friendly staff and we walked along the beach, sat at the Tiki Bar and enjoyed the evenings.

We stayed here 4 nights late in June, 2014. The beach was crowded with people having fun. It's clean and well managed. We could never get connected to Wifi in the room but could down by the pool. The TV channel selections are a little wierd. I never heard of separating channel numbers with dashes or dots. Too bad they... More

We stayed here for one night for a quick family getaway. The room had a refrigerator, small stove and a microwave, and was clean and quiet. We had a wonderful view from the fifth floor and spent the morning watching dolphins search for fish off the beach. Everyone that worked at the motel was very nice and helpful.

We stayed at the El Governor in February - was a great break from the cold in Wisconsin. Walked along the beach, sat at the Tiki Bar with the snow birds and had a great time. Room was great - with small kitchen to make snacks and light meal. The ocean view was terrific - walked right outside to the... More

To be honest, I really didn't go to this hotel looking for a five star experience. I kind of knew what I was getting when I booked the room. However, we had family friends that were getting married there, and it required us to stay for a few days. Good: Friendly staff, great location, ocean view rooms, on the beach,... More

We have stayed here 3 times in the past year and it has been great every time. The room is a good size and has a kitchenette with a full size stove & refrigerator. There is a nice machine located on each floor near the elevator. Each room has a balcony and that is our favorite place to sit in... More

First time to stay here. We read reviews and most were good. These reviews helped us make decision to stay at this hotel. It was so clean, and the people were friendly. We have nothing to complain about. Will be back soon!!!!

Literally the middle of nowhere. Hotel is nice enough. Nothing to write home about. Typical room in the main building has a full size stove, apartment size refrigerator and a small counter area. Two full size beds, average size bathroom and a patio overlooking some of the most isolated beach front I have seen. There is a beach bar located... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at El Governor, the room was clean, quiet and quite large. Overlooking the Gulf certainly helps to make it a good place to stay. The Reception staff were very friendly and helpful , as were all the other staff we met around the place. It has a well stocked shop, nice bar and... More
