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 Place NOT worth price with all that's wrong: really very outdated, rusty doors, rotten wood everywhere, many fixtures broken, exhaust fan and one of light fixtures in bathroom not working ....broken A/C (glad it was cool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

We had stayed at this B & B before and again it was awesome experience;))) everything was excellent !. The owners went beyond our expectations!! They are so welcoming, the room was very clean and the breakfast just delicious. We felt as family members. The island is the perfect place to relax!!!

"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

This place is comfortable and has a good breakfast. We enjoyed staying here and got to meet some interesting fellow travelers. If you want to be on this island, this is one of two choices. We did not go into the motel nearby, but it was nearby the main sort of town, where this BnB had a nice dock and... More

I booked a room online and didn't really know what to expect. So you'd think it would be easy for Dauphin House to exeed my expectations. It did. In every possible way. It was great and then some! Hosts Carol and George took me around the island for a tour. After we'd seen just about everything Dauphin Island has to... More
