My wife and I decided to take a two day trip to Gulfport because its only two hours away! We then phoned Island View to make reservations. Every time we go to Gulfport we spend most of our time there anyway!! We had never stayed there before, but upon our arrival we were greeted with the most welcoming attitude!!! We were then told we would be receiving an upgrade to our room!! ALL I can say is "WOW", we were upgraded to a luxury suite overlooking the gulf on one side and the downtown skyline on the other!!! This was really a wonderful surprise! The wait staff was wonderful!! The room was plush, needless to say this was the most relaxing two day getaway we have ever taken!! we will definitely be returning !! we would recommend Island View to anyone that wants to enjoy there time away from home!! The food in the Buffet was excellent! The drink service at the slots was a tad bit lacking, but in all a great experience!! Thank You Island View!!!
