Horrendous experience, Booked from information on their web site, place was horrible, dirty, noisey, poor air conditioner, out dated bedding and furniture. Looked like any decent wind would blow the siding off the place. Staff was non attentive. Did have entertainment watching spring breakers jumping off second floor balcony into the small pool. The only positive aspect was this dump...

Booked site unseen and that was a mistake. Close to beach is the only positive thing. The place is falling apart, not kept up, everything in it is old and outdatrd and the managers are not helpful at all. They charge like it is a great place but it is a dump. If you want clean towels or sheets, you...

We were booked to stay here. Upon seeing and smelling the room, there was absolutely no way I could sleep in this room. Beds are ancient, mold in bathrooms: very dank, sour gas smell.... a real dive. The picture of the room was not this motel. Reading the reviews makes me think real people did not actually stay here; they...

The Gulf Motel was clean, furnished, comfortable, and close to the beach. The pool was clean and well taken care of. Furnishings were basic but up to moderate standards and most importantly clean. Tile in rooms was updated and also clean. Location was steps to the beach, across from the library, and close enough to everything else. Kudos to Tom...

Tom and Michelle are not only the property managers they are super host and hostess:) I spent one glorious week at the Gulf by the clean pool and so close to the ocean with the balmy breezes whistling through the palm trees day and night. Shops and restaurants are a short walk from here and the trolleys run all day...
