Family run hotel. Nothing fancy, but clean and well supplied. We had access to canoe, kayaks, bicycles without fee. Also gas grill for each unit outside. Very nice pool for the few rooms. A little slice of paradise!

We had a delightful time and enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Please don't go there expecting glitz or flash. This lovely slice of heaven is OLD FLORIDA at its best. We brought a cooler with hopes of being able to cook a couple of meals and we weren't disappointed. There were several grills on the property and we used... More

We stayed here mid November based on the great reviews. While the property does look pretty much like the pictures, (although the owner told us they were taken quite a while ago), it is dated and in dire need of some TLC. Our host Mike, was friendly and welcoming and gave us a few recommendations for places in the area.... More

We spent last week (16-23 Nov) at the resort with our two furkids. I can only give high remarks to Mike and his wife for having a great pet-friendly place that you can visit in the keys.

Beautiful palm trees, water right out front, spotless pool and friendly people. That is what you will get when you are at the Gulf View. The owner, Mike gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants. We stayed on the 2nd floor in the Blue and Gold Macaw Room. It was clean and had a fridge, microwave, stove and kitchen. It was...

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights in a one bedroom, ground level accommodation at the Gulf View Resort. Our room was fairly clean, but the housekeeper never mopped the floors while we were there, so my bare feet got black on the bottom whenever I walked around the room. Our 2 double beds were both quite uncomfortable. We... More

Two weeks after being away from Florida we long to be back. The Gulf View resort was a perfect part of our week long stay in the Keys!
