the rooms were always clean and the location was great. I loved the fact it was not as busy as the normal hot spots and the local shops were family like. I would love to go back again when it is rebuilt

I have stayed here 4 times and can't wait for it to be rebuilt. Many of the places listed on trip advisor in Mexico beach no longer exist. Some are rebuilding, El Governor is. You can follow them on FB. There will not be an annex but there will be a pool. I hope to stay there in 2021.

I can't wait until the El Governor is rebuilt and open for business! All rooms face the gulf and the hotel is on the beach, so there is no need to cross a busy highway, just walk out the door of your room.

Went with a girl friend and loved this place-went multiple times. It is clean and basic right on the beach. Beautiful water and white sand. Pool and patio bar with restaurant. The town has just a few restaurants and bars to visit but it is the town next to Pensacola Beach so it isnt very busy. Quiet and relaxing and they have a small restaurant in the town across front of the hotel that is awesome, GREAT FOOD!

I love the tranquility of sitting on the beach. With this motel all the rooms open with balcony facing beach. My Husband and I brought our own food. Rooms come with stove and refrigerator. If you want to go out for meals there are many restaurants along the beach. Toucans just right down the road this is a great place to eat along the beach.
