          This was a miserable experience. On July 7, 2016 we arrived late as pre arranged, pre paid. AC not working in room. We could not sleep and left at sun up next morning. No one to call in middle of night. Will not recommend but then, when you're the only motel in town .........

          I understand that the Gulfway Motel has recently changed hands. I hate to hear this information as I am a frequent visitor to this wonderful birding location.
