We had a family wedding at an expensive resort, which was a little out of my budget. I found the Gulf Side Motel and secured the 1 bedroom apartment. It was $89 per night. My daughter and I were leary, as I had read some reviews. When we arrived, we were smitten with the charm and decor. We found the unit extremely clean and comfortable. The decor was straight out of the fifties/sixties when built and "Old Florida" feel, with numerous updates, such as flat screen tv, microwave, coffee maker. With our own livingroom, "patio" and kitchen, we invited my older daughter and friends for coffee and breakfast and had a gas. They also loved the place. The management was always available, and when I let them know we had a burnt out bulb, they had one hanging on our door within 3 minutes, respecting our privacy. There was so much space, we used the walk in closet as our dressing room. And the corker? We were across the street, literally 30 seconds from the wedding resort and beach! We saved $111 per night, which at 4 nights was nothing to sneeze at! We were delighted with the Gulf Side. If you want full service and a newer property, pay the $200 per night. We got what we needed, and a lot more. We would definitely stay at the Gulf Side again.
