My family and I travel to the Gulf several times a year. We have been repeat customers at the Balmoral for the past 3 years. It is a great place to take your family, because there is plenty of space in the rooms and it is close to the beach. The street that it sets on is away from thru traffic allowing for a quiet safe place for my wife and I and our kids. Mike is very informative to what is available to do locally and his laid back attitude makes you feel welcome. I would reccomend the Balmoral to anyone that is looking for a nice place to stay that is not your cookie cutter type of establishment. We plan on visiting again soon.
