“Faded comfort”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

I stayed, with my family, at Gulf Hills as a child and enjoyed it. Recently returned but was not impressed. Gulf Hills is coasting on a former reputation as a high-end resort. Compared even to mid-grade hotel rooms (e.g., at casinos in Biloxi), the rooms are a bit faded and not well maintained. Problems: tattered bathroom rug; 2 lamps not working; cheap, rough linens; no views (one side=parking lot, the other=wooded bayou), no amenities (no pool in winter, no gym, no walking trail). Some staff friendly (esp. "Laurie"), some surly. As a hospitality professional, I felt this was a property which had once had high standards but has fallen into the hands of inattentive management. It retains its charm as an oasis of quiet in a bustling tourist area, but unless it addresses quality of stay issues, it appears to be on the decline.

I do not golf, so maybe those who go for the golfing might forgive the accommodation shortcomings more readily.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Went there to play after reading the reviews in trip advisor. We thought $50/round was too much for this course. We did not find it exceptional. We wouldn't advise anyone to go out of their way to play there.

“Nice and quaint”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

Nice, for someone who isn't into golf. I went for job reasons, but it is right on the water and has beautiful grounds.

“My favorite”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

This used to be where Elvis lived during the summer. The golf course can't be beat for the price and overall quality!
