The Hotel Reed, as best known in recent years was located on the corner of Ulman Ave and Beach Blvd. Originally named the Weston Hotel then Hotel Reed, in modern times became the Gulf View Haven nursing home. It was eventually renamed Hotel Reed nursing home and carried that name until it closed due to the conditions of the building. The hotel survived several attempts to demolish it and survived Hurricane Katrina with surprisingly little damage. Time would take its toll as it was never repaired after Katrina. Then on early morning fire broke out destroying the historic hotel.
