We love Mexico Beach. Nice to get away from the crowds. El Governor is a older motel and a little bit outdated, but it is a decent place to stay. The front desk employees are very friendly and helpful. We have never stayed any where else because there isn't a lot of motels choices in Mexico Beach. Prices are reasonably. If you plan on staying for a week, I would check into renting a house on the beach. The El Governor is a good place to stay just for a few nights.
