Our room was steps from the beach, which was awesome! But the room definitely needed major updating. Not bad for a few nights stay.

It was terrible, we felt unsafe and it was filthy. We left and are now trying to get a refund. The door to the adjoining room had no way to secure it, nothing would have stopped someone from coming through it. We tried for more than 3 hours to call the front desk, no one answered.

Our room was very clean and a good size for their studio. I loved the screened in porch. It rained on us a majority of our time and the porch was the saving Grace. We used the heated pool. The beach was just steps away. I will come back to this hotel. Excellent price and location!

I blame Travelocity, as well as Gulf Beach Resort for NOT ADVISING US THAT THIER BEACH WAS CLOSED DUE TO BEACH RE-SANDING!! IT WAS A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT!!

Property was fairly well kept, but old. Bed was comfortable. Warm water in the toilet?? Deadbolt didn't work but the handle lock was very effective.
