We stayed in suite 7 for one night and are hooked! It was very reasonably priced and didn't hit the wallet too hard. There was a sweet little Koi pond just outside the door. The room was very clean and the shower was HUGE! We did not see any pests at all in the room. In fact, it was probably... More

I am not kidding when I tell you this place makes you feel like royalty! By the time I first opened the door to our suite, a cool breeze hit me right in the face coming from that gorgeous wall unit air conditioner. It was already set on a superb 60 degrees. The smells that come from the comforters, carpets,... More

Family-owned property since 1986. Jan & Chuck Smith (siblings) live on the property and have 9 rooms for rent. Marcie is a super housekeeper and keeps the rooms very clean. I stayed in Room 3 (2 rooms with queen bed & 2 twins, kitchenette) and then Room 8 (small room, queen bed, refrigerator and microwave). It is across US 98... More

The room is clean, nice, and very comfortable. We were told there was wifi in all the rooms, only there isn't. The only wifi is if you are standing outside the office since you can't go in because they are remodeling it. No microwave in the efficiency either.

This was our second time staying at the Gulf View Motel and we love it. This is the way Panama City was forty years ago. The motel is very clean and comfortable.The rooms have kitchenettes, but no microwaves. The prices are reasonable. Chuck is the owner and one man show, his sense of humor is great and will make you... More

We were happy to find an affordable clean place to stay near Port St Joe. Gulf View is conveniently located. Just steps to Mexico Beach. We stayed in room #4. It was recently renovated, very clean, and stocked with everything you need in the kitchenette. It easily accommodates 4 people. The cons are that it doesn't have a microwave. I... More

Right across the street from the beach and rooms were great for how cheap they are. I had issues getting the shower water to be anything other than scalding and freezing, but it might be because my dad went ahead of me (he said the shower was fine). It was also too tiny for my taste, even though it was... More

We were attending a funeral in a neighboring community and needed a place to stay for the night. I took a chance on a place sight unseen. I read the reviews for this small family owed motel. We were not disappointed. It was clean and neat. I always rate a place by the cleanness of the bathroom. It was clean... More

Stayed here for a week while working in the area. Chuck, the manager was very hospitable even though he is a one man show, doing everything that needs doing. Right across the road from the beach and within walking distance of Toucan's, not a bad place to stay. WIFI needs a little work, but he said he is working on... More
