“Quiet and cozy no noise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Stayed there memorial day weekend. I love where its located no noise or traffic at night. Nice pool and breakfast area. Staying there agian July 4th weekend. Love it. It's more like a bed and breakfast instead of a hotel

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Complete Southern charm personified! Participated in my very first kayak race on March 29th called Battle on the Bayou. The reception was catered by the local chamber and they did an impeccable job. The race check in was held in a beautiful ballroom with the most charming people full of smiles. Afterward we were treated to a delightfully delicious reception so filling that I didn't need to eat dinner. Everyone was so helpful and nice. I was terrified of the weather and being one of 206 entrants! The next day, the hotel had a wonderful complimentary breakfast and were so helpful. They also have the best hotel sussies in the bathroom from The Mermaid's Purse, a local specialty shop. Best hand lotion and shower gel I've ever used!!! The rooms' linens are a bit dated but I felt that I had landed in southern charm heaven and the rooms were so quiet as this property is on a beautiful golf course.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor facing the bay.

I have been staying at Gulf Hills for several years now. I would never stay anywhere else on the coast. And I had previously tried them all. The entire staff at Gulf Hills makes it their mission to ensure that you have a perfect visit every time!

The Gulf Hills Hotel appears to have a mixed bunch of reviews. From a distance, the Hotel presents a beautiful fascia; inside, its lobby is very attractive, clean and welcoming. Its rooms are absolutely fine, if a little dated, specifically the bathroom. We could not get wifi connection in the room but succeeded in the lobby. Breakfast was adequate for those not wanting to feast.

Overall, for the price, the Gulf Hills was acceptable by USA standards and, for non-Southern guests, offers something different. Of course, Elvis Presley spent 5 Summers here in the 50’s.

This is a beautiful hotel, environmentally friendly hotel. All the room amenities are all natural. All staff members were sure for you to feel home and the stay enjoyable. The hotel is in a very nice neighborhood, you can see the Bay from the back of the hotel, and the Continental breakfast was delicious and healthy. The hotel has a motto “Contribute to our world’s well-being”
The locations is quiet, close to downtown, easy to find all the nice Boutiques and Restaurants.

Room Tip: Second Foor on the back of the hotel

I have just returned from another visit to Ocean Springs, MS, where I once again enjoyed the plesure of staying at Gulf Hills.
This property is steeped in history and southern charm. I haven't played the golf course, but friends who have tell me it's exceptional.....which doesn't surprise me because everything else at Gulf Hills is. Donna and her entire staff are top flight and exhibit southern hospitality at it's very finest. The accommodations are more than comfortable and most rooms come complete with a small kitchenette, refridgerator, microwave, ironing board and pretty much anything else you could possibly need during your stay. The food at the on site cafe and clubhouse is delicious and affordable.
Before you ask, no, I do not work for the hotel and this is not a 'staged' review. I am a touring performing songwriter and radio host and I have had the pleasure of staying at this fine resort numerous times. The quality and attention to detail is consistent....they are always at their best at Gulf Hills.
As a company, they are supportive of local and area musical events, charities and the arts, in general. This is to be admired in a day age age when most companies are only concerned with their bottom line. Gulf Hills is a 'part' of Ocean Springs and their actions prove their committment to the community around them. It's a breath of fresh air.
Ocean Springs is a gem of a coastal Mississippi town...and Gulf Hills is the diamond along these shores. I would recommend a stay at Gulf Hills to anyone wishing to have a unique and very pleasant hotel experience. Plus, the property was the summer home to one Mr. Elvis Presley and you can alsmot feel his presence their simply because the hotel has honored that bit of history.
Do something nice for yourself...plan a trip to southern Mississippi and make your accommodations reservations at Gulf Hills.

Room Tip: I typically stay in a handicapped accessible room....to be precise, room 136. I now longer even have...

The place is old and poorly renovated. The bathroom is old fashioned layout with a small subdivision for toilet and shower. There was no tub. There are no luggage carts and no elevators to the second floor rooms. Access to the rooms is from the outside. Parking is inadequate and you vehicle is likely to be pelted by golf balls. Air conditioning is provided by built-in wall units that can barely keep up with the heat and do not have digital thermostats. Television is inadequately disseminated from the cable by some kind of local router so that some channels (e.g. HBO) are often not available or the picture is bad. Likewise, the wireless internet signal is weak and unreliable. Complimentary breakfast is a joke even as continental breakfasts go. Price for value is not even very good considering they should only get two stars or two diamonds rating.

The desk people are mostly very friendly. They all have to kowtow to the female manager who is a viper in the guise of a sticky sweet southern lady.

Room Tip: Go someplace else unless you are crazy about the golf course. Large outdoor swimming pool is nice du...
