The manager Diane was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area. She immediately set us up with a nice clean room. Our little dog Sparky was in heaven in the morning when we awoke and took him for a beautiful walk on the beach the sunrise was astonishing, the access was within feet to our door.

We booked the Gulf Motel extremely last minute. Drove by, saw a vacancy sign, and decided to stop in. We were able to get a room during spring break. The hotel is not directly on a beach, but is just a few feet away from a beach access #24. Our room faced the main street and had two queen size... More

Unfortunately, at this time of year, prices are outrageous and I had a budget. Pool had three chairs and was stuck between two buildings where there was not room... More

This motel is more like efficiency apartments. My bed was so comfy and the room was spotless clean with a strong scent of bleach. There is no phone, no ice machine and no free packs of coffee for the in room coffee makers. The store is walking distance away to buy your ice and coffee. The management has you take... More

My husband and I stayed here Valentine's weekend and we brought our two dogs with us. We had a really nice stay. The rooms were very clean and the dogs were very welcome.
