My Husband & visited this lovely place by complete sheer luck a little over 3 yrs. ago & returned there this past Dec. 29th, 2013. We were staying for about 5 days. The hotel manager was so sweet. We had to leave a day earlier because of family difficulties & she refunded a day back( NEVER EVER HAD THIS BEFORE). ALWAYS EXTRA TOWELS , when we asked. This place is just plain, but so clean & friendly & everyone who works there are such good folks. GOD BLESS this lovely place & may God protect it from all storms & evils. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

Great motel, right on the beach, slightly strange smell in the room, but it was clean, and with comfy bed, great kitchen area. Parking right outside. About a mile away to the main drag for food. The location is amazing, with their own sun beds on the beach to watch a great sunset. Best priced accommodation that we stayed in for our three week holiday. There is a BBQ to use, and a kids area, with a separate pool. All great for a family holiday

First off was the staff: friendly, knowledgeable, and always there. Need extra towels. Keep the shuffleboard stuff overnight/ Never a problem. I even left an electronic gizmo behind and they promptly mailed it to me.

Secondly, we had Christmas in Sarasota and families were spread all over . But guess where everybody came to visit each day? That's right, us . . .and why not. We had the pool, the easy access to the beach, Shuffleboard, screened on porches, and terrific hike on the beach at night opportunities. Parking was also suh-weet.

I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and will!

Room Tip: Get a room on the end with double screened on porches.

I've stayed at this resort since I was in my mothers belly over 20 years ago. My family has been going here since before that too. I love the atmosphere and the closeness to the beach. The pool is always luke warm and relaxing after being in the salty water all day long. Every room is different designed with unique decor that center you around the beach-life. We recommend this place to any and everyone we know especially people who doubt the greatness of it. You have to see it to believe it!! There are chairs to sit in on the beach, grills to cook out on, and even a cover set of picnics tables. A few hotels down there is a Tiki bar that the adults have enjoyed time after time. Everyone who works there and has ever worke there have been more than helpful. The fully equipped kitchens make staying for a few days and more even more enjoyable. Best place on Earth! Plus the prices are great!

Excellent from start to finish. Booked hotel for 9 softball families with kids and they loved everything Gulf Beach Resort had to offer!!! The beach was feet away, pool was heated, charcoal pits ready to go. Sat beachside and watched sun go down. Just a great experience, and we will be back. Thank you!
