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

My wife and I did a weekend getaway to Dauphin Island for the 4th of July. Our original plan was to stay in a hotel off the Island about 20-25 min away. Last min. we change our minds and booked the Dauphin House. Yes, there are mixed reviews about this place but this is our take on it. First, our... More

The owners Carol and George are engaging, warm, caring and helpful. They shared tips/info about the island and made sure to make my brother and I feel very welcome. Our stay did not start smoothly - their staff forgot to clean the room my brother and I had reserved, so we were switched to a different room. Soon after, the... More

Do yourself a favor - stay anywhere else unless you like staying in unfinished rooms, enjoy eating burned breakfasts and don't mind sharing your room with roaches - yes roaches. The owners mean well but are entirely out of their depth when it comes to running a b & b. The walls in the room are cracked, unpainted and have... More

We were looking for some place to spend the weekend, other than a busy and noisy hotel room.We chose Dauphin House after reading what it had to offer. The moment we stepped into the quaint, inviting living area, we knew it was for us. George and Carol have been the owners for 22 years, their warm and friendly welcome, and... More

Stayed here a few years ago and would have rated place much higher than this recent visit... Place NOT worth price with all that's wrong: really very outdated, rusty doors, rotten wood everywhere, many fixtures broken, exhaust fan and one of light fixtures in bathroom not working ....broken A/C (glad it was cool weather). Not everything was bad: nice view... More

"home away from home" may sound a little corny but here it's definitely true. George and Carol really make you feel you are family, not just hotel guests. This was our second time at Dauphin House, and when Carol gave us her famous island tour (also mentioned in another review) we still discovered new things on Dauphin Island, even though... More
