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

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
