Old style hotel, friendly staff on the gulf for those great sunsets. Clean with a kitchenette. Nice property with pool. They can make improvements by adding a small side table next to the bathroom sink & adding a luggage rack. The only real negative were the sheets that would not stay on the bed. Hello owners.....an easy fix. I'd stay...

We stayed at the Gulf View Resort for one night while cycling the Keys. When we arrived at the office, there was our name on the welcome sign! Mike was very friendly and helpful as we checked in, then he brought us to our room. The room was absolutely clean. It was on the road side of the building, but...

Our third visit to this hotel and it is always clean and well maintained. We love that is not a franchise and they are very accomodating. They have large birds and a tortoise that my children love. A great place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Have been coming to the Keys for decades - ready for a change. Found Gulf View after a Google and Tripadvisor search. Resort is pet friendly, very well maintained, beautifully landscaped, well sited and very private. Is on a bay about eight miles north of Marathon, so all needed supplies are available there as well a dozens of restaurants, charters,...

Gulf View is a wonderful oasis in the middle Keys. It has a lovely waterfront setting with palm trees and a relaxed atmosphere. Mike will help with any request in a friendly and helpful way. You can walk to the Dolphin Research Center. The state park is minutes away. We loved our stay at Gulf View. The Hammond Family

I had never been to the Keys before, just went on a whim, spent 10 wonderful days at Gulf View. The family run resort was so laid back. The grounds are beautiful and force you to relax. Park like settings with palm trees, hammocks, gentle off shore breeze, pick nick tables. Coffee hot in a large coffee maker under the...

We stumbled upon gulf view and couldn't be more pleased with our stay. The room was comfortable and clean, we had great neighbors to chat with, there was amble parking, and we had our morning coffee on one of the paddle boats. Definitely check out Sparky's restaurant while you're visiting. It was a recommendation to us when we checked in...

We just left the resort, and have nothing but nice things to report. The staff was super friendly, and accommodating, the room was small but clean and adequate. The small kitchen and gas grills allowed my family to save some coin and cook in a little. Also when we caught a nice Mangrove Snapper from the dock we were able...
