If you have been following me for very long you know I love the Mississippi Gulf Coast and am a go to for all the hidden treasures it has to offer. The world of travel has changed during this scary time of COVID-19. I needed a safe get away and I sure found a good one. The Gulf Hills Hotel is tucked away near the bay in Ocean Springs. The most beatiful views are all around this vintage hotel. It is kinda like going back to the resort vactions you see in the dirty dancing movie. Here are my reasons I loved it so much.
Be sure to see the gallery below the list!
1. The Scenery
Grab a bottle of wine and a rocking chair because you will want to sit on the porch and soak it all in.
2. Walk straight from the car to the room
You won’t find any crowded elevators here or a long haul down a crowded hallway. This is perfect if you have someone older or handicapped. I also love it for work because I have easy access to my car. This is also so safe from COVID.
3. Huge pool
This pool gives a ton of room to social distance or splash around with the family. It is really well maintained and has a beautiful view of the bay. There is also a Tennis Court and Golf Course.
4. Several beautiful covered spaces with outdoor seating and dining areas.
To avoid the crowd downtown we did take out and brought it back to the hotel and dined outside.
5. Perfect for an extended stay
Several of the rooms actually havc a small kitchen.
6. The history is so interesting
Elvis actually kept a suite here. Marilyn Monroe, Jane Mansfield, Judy Garland and many more have actually stayed here. The staff have so many entertaining stories.
7. It is a total Southern experience
This hotel is vintage and nostalgic. The staff is so hospitable. You feel like you are stepping back in time.
8. It is such a quiet getaway
The party crowd is NOT here. Most of the guests love it so much they come several times a year.
9. It is close to Downtown and the Beach
Downtown Ocean Springs and the Beach is only 5 minutes away. The casinos are only 7 minutes away.
Although this is an older hotel, they still have the modern comforts of free Wifi and a really good free continental breakfast.
