Excellent location. Across the street from the beach . Very clean and all the necessary amenities within the room. Owner very consiencious of proving assistance as able and was involved in the upkeep and upgrading all of his rooms/units pretty much on his own with local help/workers. Will definitely stay there again if we need to come back to continue... More

This is a very nice small, private motel. You can't beat the area, it's right across the street from the beach and this is a quieter less developed area. There are a few decent restaurants within walking distance, which was great for us. I'd definitely stay there again. Owner was great and very accommodating to us.

We just spent 3 nights in room #7. The pictures just don't do this place justice. It is absolutely perfect. I am an extreme clean freak and this place far exceeded my expectations. Everything in the kitchen and bath areas appeared to be recently renovated. There are 2 big recliners just inside the french doors and a large wall mounted... More

This was my first experience at Gulf View though I come to Mexico Beach frequently. This is now my first choice for overnight visits. The rooms have been remodeled, they are very clean and comfortable. A small kitchen is great for snacking or cooking for those on a budget. There is a grocery store only blocks away, within walking distance.... More

We tried this place out and stayed the week. Very clean and affordable rooms. Lazy southern gulf town, not the hustle you see at mega resorts. I was impressed by the reviews I read before securing room for this visit. I will be coming back!

I have only stayed here one night so I don't have a lot to comment on. My Daughter and Son in Law stayed here for a weekend and I drove down on Saturday and spent the night. We had 2 bedrooms which were a nice size. The bed and pillow was comfortable. The room was clean, appliances all worked. There... More

This was our second visit to Mexico Beach, and second stay at Gulf View Motel. We enjoyed our stay here, both times in efficiency room five. It is a family owned and operated seaside motel. Don't be alarmed by one particular grumpy staffperson, because Jamie, the housekeeper, more than makes up for the lack of friendliness thereof. The beds and... More

I hesitate to write a review because the big problem we had is going to be addressed by the owner. We knew that room 8 was small before we made our reservation, so that was not an issue. However, the shower is extremely small and a large/tall person would not be comfortable. The room was clean as other people noted.... More

We stayed here for four nights and for $62 including tax, you can't really go wrong. Our room had a small kitchenette (with stove) and was easy to load in and out of. The service was great, although sometimes you needed to call the desk as the fellow was also working on renovating two of the rooms. It was quiet,... More
