If you have an gulf view room, the view is incredible, was wonderful to watch the sunset from our balcony and fall asleep to the sound of the waves on the the beach. Very nice beach.
Hotel was a bit dated, but clean. Staff was very friendly.

Did not stay here, looked at rooms and reads reviews, has antique heat and air system, rooms felt stuffy and
Expérience tells me would not get better, a two pipe air system. Views good from beach rooms. Anyway I am reviewing their breakfast cafe. Very nice buffet with good food at good price. Patio or inside seating. Great place with pool side dining .

I stayed at Helmsley in September 2013, for a couple of nights. The Golf View room was amazing, it is worth the price. The hotel itself was a good experience, good value for money. The staff was kind and helpfull. Free parking opportunities.
Located right on the beach - so nice. I will for sure come back.

This must be one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The hotel itself is clean, kitschy and well priced. Decor is plain. Long time staff greeted us like old friends. Nice big rooms. Great breakfast buffet price. Burgers rock. Get an ocean view and listen to the waves. Seriously what more do you want at this price?

Room Tip: Ocean front a must

This hotel has nothing else going for it than the location and the pools. Repeat customers mean nothing to the management. Very tired rooms and unfriendly personal. I am not sure why this hotel received a certificate of excellence.

Room Tip: Gulf front is most expensive but great for sunset viewing and listening to waves.
