The location is perfect convenient to the beach, food and activities! The free breakfast is awesome. Rose M was so pleasant and helpful. Such a beautiful person, made you feel like her guest! She has been there for years and always has a smile on her face and a pleasant word for you!

Old hotel with old layout and fixtures. The staff was nice and friendly. Stayed there to celebrate a birthday which was right during spring break. Water in the pool was ice cold. It was OK but not a good value for the spring break raised rates.

You have to appreciate the simple things in order to love this hotel. It is not fancy, but is clean and easy. It's all about location! Loved the pool, bar and beach access! Private parking area and lower price was also great. The breakfast is fresh and homemade.

We stayed at Gaidos the night before our cruise. It is located right on the seawall with great access to the beach area. The rooms are somewhat dated but for the price and location it is a great deal. They offer a free shuttle to the cruise ship terminal and allow you to keep your vehicle on their property free....

This was very busy when we arrived being the weekend before Madi Gras. The accommodation was comfortable if a little tired and I found the staff helpful. It is right on the coast but a little way from the the centre of things. There is a attached that is actually much better than I expected, we actually ate there twice...

Staff is friendly, breakfast burritos are awesome. The parking was horrendous. There were absolutely no parking places when we got back from eating at night and only one when we checked in. The hotel is old but still decent. I would stay here again but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Stayed during the second weekend of Mardi Gras celebration in which the rate increased almost $100 per night. The room is not worth that. Interiors are in need of updating/cleaning for sure. However, the location is good for the beach, which was undergoing major renovations. A short walk to the Pleasure Pier was fun for kids. A few good restaurants...

Great little place, no frills but clean and has a great pool and hot tub running year round. Good for having drinks in the hot-tub looking at the Gulf. Also a short walk to the pier and some great restaurants.
