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

Stopped here on a trip through the area. The owners are very nice and accommodating. Rooms are spotlessly clean and updated. It's the perfect seaside town motel. The gulf is right across the street. This motel has been above and beyond my favorite stop so far, and we have stayed in 5* chains this trip. FANTASTIC!!!!

Older motel, family owned since the 80's. Cleans, constantly remodeling, friendly staff, very accommodating. Rooms to fit anyone's budget. Apts, effieciencys, and rooms. Across the street from the beach. Fishing great, right from the beach. Chuck and Jan, brother & sister make you feel like family. My husband & I have been staying there 6-7 years, and try to go...

This was our 3rd year to stay at the Gulfview. It is clean and the rates are something to brag about! The gounds are kept clean. Nice drive to Port St. Joe. Our one bedroom efficiency has a lot to offer. The living room/kitchenette is nicely arranged with table and chair for dinning and two recliners in the living room... More

This motel is actually efficiency apartments. There are 6 or 7 rooms total so it is very small. I have no qualms with the facilities or the rooms. The rooms were rather nice and very clean. I have a big problem with the customer service and professionalism of the staff - a brother and sister who own the motel. I... More

We just returned from a weekend trip to Mexico Beach, FL and we had the pleasure of staying at the Gulf View Motel on Hwy 98. We arrived at dusk on Friday evening and the owner's son greeted us. It was exactly as we had expected..as I had done research on the motel last year. It had a full size... More
