Very Good 8.0 From 286 reviews

Good 6.0
My “motel room “ was very small. Had not been renovated yet. Window air conditioner stopped working but the handy man fixed it. Took @ 1.5 hours to fix it and I stayed in the room which was time wasted. Room was humid. I was delighted that they put out chaise loungers on the beach. Staff were friendly.

Great little beach-front motel for the money!
We booked here after our initial sourced condo was found to be in poor condition, and uninhabitable, so this was a last minute "on the fly, we need somewhere to stay the weekend in a pinch" booking. (As an aside, Hotels,com were great to work with regarding the initial condo and refunded our entire purchase after the check-in disaster). We were quite happy with The Gulf Beach Resort Motel overall. The room was nice, albeit older, as is the entire motel. It does carry an Historical Marker on the property after all. Only complaint? The AC could have been a bit cooler in our room, but it certainly wasn't unbearable. Beach access is second-to-none. Great little beach-front motel for the money!

A bit disappointed
Placed in studio apartment right beside the office. The staff was very friendly and nice to us but we did bring it to their attention the the drain for the shower was clogged. The first night we were there it drained very slowly. By the second night and third night we basically had standing water when we took showersand it did not get taken care of even if we did bring it to their attention twice. There was one cockroach in the cupboard but we just made sure that we clean and wash the cups first my husband even swept the back patio area that was nice but it was pretty unmaintained and full of leaves. We're pretty much troopers whenever we stay at places. But unfortunately we will not return even if the location is right on the beach and the people were friendly.

Great Experience
I come here every year and I always leave happy. The staff are so friendly and approachable. We love the location because it's right at the beach. The rooms are very clean and the beds very comfortable. We cannot wait for our stay next year. Thanks Samantha for everything!
