We arrived on a Saturday and left on Monday. We had an amazing time. The room was clean and the service was great. We will be back. The annex was great. The guys that run the jet skis had a friend that played unbelievably loud music. Other than that the place was very quiet especially after hours.

Yes, I know I was at the beach. But I also work while on the road. And the internet access was HORRIBLE!!!! The room they originally gave me had no access at all. The man at the "front desk" via the phone told me to go to the pool bar if I wanted access to the internet. I was allowed... More

This place isn't the cheapest in Mexico beach but it's well worth it.. This is my favorite place in Florida to be. The pool and beach isn't crowded because Mexico beach is a small... More

Rooms are quaint with a small kitchen! The best part is the view! The staff are FANTASTIC including the cleaning staff. Were regular guests! We come from Niceville, Florida about two hours away. Its always great to come here for a get-away-weekend. Great place to stay!

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights in March of 2010 for spring break. Myself I am a business traveler and say in hotels over half the year. This was not a place that I was very impressed with. The rooms are very old and show a lot of wear! The elevator did not work and the ice... More

The room was clean, it has a stove and full fridge pots and pans if you want to dine in. The beds were comfortable and clean. The view was awesome from the balcony . We watched the fireworks over the ocean New Years. The price is very good I will return during the warmer months.

Not new/fancy, yet perfect. Clean, freshly painted, small kitchen, balcony facing miles of BEACH. Port St. Joe/Apalachicola close by for trinity of good restaurant choices. Walking, fishing etc... Mexico Beach, FL is tiny and similar to small Florida towns ca. 1965. You know, childhood memories of the beach! Small local IGA had perfect stock selection + a tiny butcher area... More
