          After a 3-month business trip around the USA, we were looking for a well-priced place to stay for a 10-day break at the beach before we headed home. The Gulf Beach Resort was just what we were looking for. It is definitely not a fancy...More

          This is one of the last original places to stay on the beach. Used to be a motel way back when, not it's like a "condo-tel". Each room is owned by a different owners, so no 2-rooms are alike. Located right on the beach, close...More

          Incredibly rude staff. Shockingly rude to potential customers. I would never give my money to anyone willing to treat a person so poorly. We ended up renting elsewhere (tons of great local rentals/hotels). The beach is beautiful. I recommend staying clear of this place.More
