We stayed here for 3 nights in June. We had 3 rooms and 12 people. This is a smaller resort and we had the whole place pretty much to ourselves. The view and location cannot really be beat. You walk out of your room and the beautiful white sand beach is right there. On our beach days, we were on... More

It should be illegal to call a dingy 'motel' a 'resort'. We stayed in one of the units that's directly facing the Gulf, and the view was the only notable thing about it. With a little TLC the unit could be really comfortable and great. For example...a coffee maker with filters, but no coffee grinds and sugar. No tissue or... More

Room needed a little update, but other than that is was nice place to stay. Owner was very friendly. If you want... More

This may have been a nice place to stay if it were 1970. Someone needs to give this hotel owner glasses, because either he can't see or he just doesn't give a darn. Saying it is dated is an understatement! It is in a state of disrepair and obviously no one cares to update anything. I'm not saying our room/apt.... More

We spent a week in Feb. at this 'no frills' motel. The owners (Sue and Allen) are extremely accommodating. The rooms vary from really nice to just okay. They were clean and had all the right stuff for our week's stay. The beach was beyond beautiful and if quiet is what you're looking for this is the place. No high... More

We had the 2 bedroom on the 2nd level looking out at the Gulf. Very beautfiul view. This is 4/10 mile from the main beach and is quiet and peaceful. We took photos of the sunset each night. The other occupants that we met had come there for 22 years. Beds were comfortable, everything in the kitchen and room worked... More

We visit Casey key each Christmas and its the highlight of the year! My family have stayed at gulf sands for many years and the location is superb! The beach is just in front of the apartments and the sunsets are exquisite! The apartments have always been shabby but very clean. This year we were gutted to find the apartments... More

If you are looking for a friendly laid back kind of place right on the beach, this is it. My husband and I stayed with my sister in a two bedroom unit. We sat on the deck with a glass of wine looking at the stars and listening to the water at night and walked the beach with our coffee... More
