This is absolutely the best deal you can get on a room on the forgotten coast! I have never seen a more beautiful beach or sunset in my whole life and we can't wait to go back to Gulf View Motel. I'm not really sure where the other lady got that the owner's son is rude, because he was really... More

An amazing value, great location! We didn't want to leave! This was our third or fourth trip to Mexico Beach & we have stayed at different places each time. This was the least expensive by anywhere from $30-100 per night. It was very quiet, directly across the 2-lane street from beach access. We still had plenty of the ocean view!... More

Since I hadn't seen any pictures, I was a little hesitant. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we first saw it. We don't like staying in chains or large hotels, so this was perfect. We had a kitchenette unit, which was well stocked and if there was something we needed, they got it for us. The owner and his son... More

We have stated here several times. If you want a clean older budget place this is the one for you. All ground floor units right across the street from a great beach access. Full sized refrigerator as well as a gas stove and a sink in each unit. We stayed here for a week and it is by far the... More

This family owned motel is a last vestige of Old Florida. It is right across the road from a gorgeous beach, convenient to restaurants and other simple pleasures of the relatively undeveloped town of Mexico Beach. If you want amusement parks, dance clubs, etc, go to Panama City. If you want a very reasonably priced stay in a clean motel... More

This is nothing fancy. It is simple but clean. The rates are half the price of anything else in the area. No you are not right on the beach but walk across a two lane road and you are there. The motel is sort of a horsehoe shape with grassy area in the back with picnic tables that is a... More

The motel is just 2 lanes from the Gulf! The owners never claimed it was on the beach. If you know there's no internet be grateful the son offers you his. The rates can't be beat, call around including the El Govenor it's like 800.00 a week + tax!!!! 375.00 a week + tax and 5.00 for each additional person... More

Well we booked this only because my daughter's friend's mother knew the owners. Sure it was dirt cheep. But you know the old saying you get what you pay for.... Right off the bat the owner's son was complaining about the lady that had just checked out. That she was a crack addict... Then there was the party that smoked... More

This little gem is a trip saver for the fisherman on a budget. Located in Mexico Beach, it is about 10 miles west of the marina at Port St Joe. A single room here is very affordable compared to other nearby establishments, and if you're a reasonable sort, the management is very accommodating. Now, this is not your fancy, spend... More

First of all, this motel IS NOT LOCATED IN PORT ST JOE!!! lol. It is in MEXICO BEACH, Fl. For some reason people have been posting it in Port St Joe. We called the owner when we arrived in Port St Joe because we could not find it and he said "No, I am in Mexico Beach!". So just a... More
