I made a reservation at this motel, based on the positive reviews. When I checked in I made a request to the young man who happened to be working at the desk at the time (obviously his family run the place) to get a second floor room. No problem, he gave me the key and when I got to the... More

The Gulf Way in was pretty much what I expected: budget quality, but comfortable. The staff wasn't exceptionally personable, and the water from the tap seemed a little cloudy. The "free breakfast" was store bought pastries that sat out all day. The pool was nice and clean and felt good. Overall, I had a decent time and would recommend it... More

Spent one night here, didn't experience any problems with my stay. For what I paid it was good value. My room was spacious and clean. There was sufficient parking- I could park outside my room make unloading luggage so much easier. During my nights stay I was not disturbed, of course you can be unlucky and pick a noisy night....but... More

If you're looking for a place to sleep overnight, then this place will do. There was a roach in the bathroom, the t.v. remote didn't work, the t.v. emitted a loud buzz sound, and the room overall could be cleaner. It is cheap for 2 beds, and friendly customer service. I probably would stay here again only for the price... More

This is my second winter at the Gulf Way. Staff is courteous and very helpful. Housekeepers do a great job. Close to beach, restaurants and shopping. Clean, sparkling pool. Parking lot is well-lit, safe and secure. Very quiet here, no wildness anywhere on the premises. A truly great value for adults and seniors. Being able to cook in your own... More

First off I'm not sure where these drunks and hoes are these other reviews speak of I have had no problems since I arrived in December. This motel has nice rooms for a good price, heated pool and free ice. Owners are easy to get along with and very friendly. I've been here for a month and I love it.... More

My wife and I have stayed here for 12 days needing a good clean inexpensive room while here in town for work to save money. We're very picky about where we stay focusing on how expensive to managements abilty to keep bad patrons out. I'm happy to report positively up to now with respect to "our focus."

Yes you may have found a very cheap hotel, but its for all that you have to deal with in this place. When I first arrived, the parking lot was being watched by a police patrol car for like 4 or 5 hours, I should have known rite there...then as soon as he leaves you have the prostitutes hanging out...
