Although el governor was booked solid this past week, it was extremely quiet and relaxing....very affordable with off season... More

Very nice park. On the smaller side but clean with very friendly staff. Pool and bar accross the street with an amazing Gulf view. Walking distance to restaurants, stores and beach. Pet friendly. Would definitely recommend and come back. Happy camping!!!

This was our first time staying at El Governor Motel. We read reviews on Trip Advisor about it mostly positive. We checked in and immediately fell in love with tiki area and bar. However, we came back to the hotel late one of our nights and we noticed that a tattooed man and a woman were with a child who... More

Very nice place for a family, group, or just a couple. However, making the reservations was difficult. Had a large group with a block of rooms and everything was supposed to be set up but still had to make three calls to make the reservation. When we arrived, the reservation was still screwed up. They would not allow to stay... More

We stayed at the RV park across the road from the hotel the first week in August. It was a great place to stay being a short walk across the road from the beach for a reasonable price. The bath house and laundry room were kept very clean all day long. The staff was great and very helpful. We had... More

I stayed at the Annex building of the El Govenor with my boyfriend's family for a week. The rooms were great and the kitchen was fully equipped. the beach was not crowded at all, so it was pretty much to ourselves. The view is unbeatable and it was nonstop relaxation. Also is only 2 minutes from Toucan's, which was great.... More

All the hotel rooms have a view of the Gulf and joins the clean, white sandy beach. Everyone was very friendly. The hotel room had a complete kitchen and the space of the room was efficiently used. There was free boat parking across the street from the hotel.

We have stayed here several times and always ask to stay in the "annex" which is one story, one level and park at your door. There is a door that opens out to the tiki porch (large covered deck with rockers, swings on the beach, and it is about 10 steps to the sand. The beach is pure white sand,... More
