“First Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We would recommend the Gulf Beach Inn to any friend or family member for a relaxing affordable weekend amongst genuine people. Is it the Hyatt? No... but does a hotel like that treat you like extended family? Does the Ritz Carlton even remember your name after check-in? You get much much more in true value at the Gulf Beach Inn on what is important in life, and we shall visit our new friends there again in 6 months. Thank you for the warm memories......

Your friends from Cleveland Ohio, Ramo and Jwow

P.S. Have the negative people stay across the street where they will fit right in :-)

Room Tip: Be polite and your may receive what you ask for.....even the same day

Guy at the front desk was the laziest and unfriendliest hotel staff I ever encountered! He charged us more than it said at my confirmation and was totally ignorant of understanding me! After not even pretending to listen to my concern he told me that we could stay somewhere else if we wanted to. Hotel was decent but that rudeness and ignorance kind of ruined it!

Stayed March 11th to 18th 20014. Must first say thank you very much to Coach for taking good care of us during our stay... He was always on hand to help or advise... Please don't pay attention in the negative reviews... This hotel is clean, simple and the true florida experience... The location is second to none... We were three canadian guys going down for Blue Jays baseball spring training games and got way more than we expected... Thanks again Coach... We will see you again no doubt... Josh, Todd and Eric....

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor with the fridge and sink. Good room... Great value...

We recently spent five nights here in the king suite. Our bedroom window had a nice view of the Gulf. Immediately outside of our front door ther was a furnished deck with a great view of an attractive pool area .The facility had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable, within easy walking distance of the beach and town. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!The hospitality was superb! The Ammermans know how to extend a very warm welcome.

This Hotel was the cleanest be found close to walking disstance from Beach. We were in clear water 10 days and wished we stayed at this Hotel first. The best one near Beach and the most friendliest one.Thank you so much Coach A, for making us feel so much home feeling in a world we don't even live in. We will be back soon. Thanks for all our directions and use of washer and drier . Can't wait till my girl friend books our next trip in May.....Thank you from your fellow Hoosiers, From Monticello, In. Fran and Jeff

Room Tip: The Higher floor have less A/C unit noise....Nice view of pool too.

We stayed here around the time of thanksgiving.
Coach A and his wife welcomed us so pleasantly and even invited us to their party of thanksgiving. The meal was awesome!!
It's very close to the beautiful beach and they also have a nice pool.
We were there for business reason, so I gave 4 rating.
Because the wifi is limited only for day-time at the pool side...
Otherwise it's very good place,
if you just want to get relaxed and enjoy!!
