My hope is that somehow the owner operators will see this post and take it to heart. I am unbiased and being supportive believe me. By the way the "contact us" link on your web site doesn't work. That's 1. That says you are incompetent or don't care. Or don't know but I think you do. So here is your... More

Our entire family really enjoyed the visit at the Dauphin House. We felt very much at home there. The management and staff are hospitable, and the facility is very clean. The House is being renovated, and the covered patio in the middle has a very relaxing, open atmosphere. They serve a delicious breakfast, including fresh fruit, sausage patties, bacon, biscuits,...

Great place! The property recently sold and is going through some much needed upgrades. Lifts for boats, a new patio and walkways, new deck and the new owners said they are redoing the rooms. Construction will be completed by the end of the month but its not intrusive. The new owners and management are very family friendly and fun. Our... More

We spent a couple nights here in March and were very glad to find a place for the night, as the Motel was booked. The welcome is very warm and genuine, and the breakfast is home cooked and ample. Keep in mind that Dauphin is a backwater. I believe the place is on the market, and, yes, it could all... More

We spent 2 nights here the last week in March. The manager (Janet) is VERY nice. The grounds need some TLC. The Rooms were clean, but needed a face lift. The breakfasts were good. It's on the bay---not on the ocean. We would probably choose somewhere else to stay on our next trip to Dauphin Island.

First, read the last few reviews. They are good. This is the second time my wife and I stayed here, this time because of a "Happy Anniversary" post on e-mail. I was going to take my wife to Charleston for our 45th anniversary, but got a bit lost....First time was in January, 2011. If you want bar scene, frenetic activity,... More

It is a very quiet place, located on the bay side of the Dauphin Island. We enjoyed a beautiful bay view from the second floor room. B&b is surrounded pine trees and palms, we could listen to birds' singing (there are many birds on the Island and you can take amazing pictures of them or just watch). Beach and birds... More

This is such a great place to stay! We wanted to get out of town just for a couple of nights, but the places I called on Dauphin Island were all 3 night minimums (no minimum at the bed and breakfast). I ran across the Dauphin House Bed and Breakfast and I'm so happy I did. From my first phone... More

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every bit of our stay. We stayed in #6 and the bed was extremely comfortable with a foam mattress topper. Having a private bathroom to ourselves was very nice as well. Every morning we went to the dining room and was served a hot breakfast. Scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage/biscuits/pancakes/fruit/grits and cheese. Fresh Coffee and Orange... More

First, you have to understand Dauphin Island in general. They do not allow any chain restaurants or hotels so everything will be small and local. If this isn't what you want, you shouldn't visit Dauphin Island. As for Dauphin House, we have stayed several years for the fishing rodeo and the occasional weekend get away. We had stayed at another... More
