This was our first stay at Gulf View, but it will not be our last. The rooms are quiet and clean. The property is beautiful. While we were there all of the rooms were full, but we still felt as though there were no crowds at all. The owners were easy to talk to and very helpful.

We were a bit worried originally, as we had never stayed here and the price was more reasonable then others we checked for the long weekend. Were we pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness, friendliness, and overall excellent experience. The hotel is an older hotel, but none the less clean. You have the feeling of the Keys without the people. Thank...

This marks our fifth year returning to the Gulfview which is a record for us as we usually like to try different places. The combination of this being a small (11 units) resort, personal and friendly service, and great accommodations are the reason we're back for our longest stay at 2 weeks. We find it centrally located for a day...

We wanted to visit the Florida Keys with no experience and a limited frame of reference. After some investigation, we felt that prices generally increased the closer on gets to Key West. Since we only had one full day and two nights to explore, we decided to go for lower priced lodging and then driving into Key West for the...

For reasons I won't go into, we ended up in the Keys without a place to stay during Presidents' week and school vacation. Mike and his staff were able to provide lodging for us during our 5 day stay by being creative with room assignments. More work for them and extremely fortunate and accommodating for us! It totally made our...

Gulf View's positives outweigh the negatives: Family-owned operation - they are very friendly and accommodating. The view of the Gulf is fantastic. The rooms are small, but clean. The saltwater pool is excellent, so much better than a chlorine pool. The kids and us loved it. The property is small, but that's part of it's charm. The kids will love...
