Nine adults and three kids descended on the motel for a 3-day family reunion. We selected Barons for the price, and the proximity to the bay, a pier, a beach, and to Fairhope proper. There was no deposit required. A real plus was that because we had 5 rooms, Anil comped us an additional motel room for use as a... More

The "inn" (not really) is quite outdated, however, it is in a good location, reasonably priced, and the room we stayed in had been remodeled and was clean. We were pleased. Best shower head and water pressure EVER! No breakfast:(

I admit it, when you first pull up the outside of the hotel is very disheartening for a weary traveler. The exterior is beyond run down. Kind of sad really, because the drive through Fairhope is quite lovely, and you really can't beat the location being right across the street from Mobile Bay. I got my hopes up due to... More

The room was just fine, clean and cleaned everyday. Every room has been refurbished. The beds were comfortable; bring your own coffee as what's supplied for the little machine is weak. The internet is swift and was very useful for me (and free). It's family run, so when you enter the office, staff are often in the back being a... More

We were needing a room for 3 nights during this past week at the last minute..(based on our schedule at this time) .most of the hotels in Fairhope were sold out due to the Holiday Weekend. I found a few rooms within the city but they were smoking rooms at $89 per night and offered two full beds..which would not... More

We couldn't find anywhere to stay during the week of the 4th of July. We booked at the Barons and were a little nervous about it. We stayed in room 21 and it was very nice and clean. The Vira family who run the hotel are very nice and friendly. The room was quiet. We heard no traffic or noise... More

Due to almost everywhere else being booked we found ourselves checking in at the Baron's by the Bay Inn. My wife seldom likes the smaller independent hotels as we have had numerous bad experiences over the years. While the Baron's Inn is definitely an older hotel the furnishings are fairly new and the room was very clean. The manager had... More

First appearances of the motel are a bit scary, but apparently I got one of the renovated rooms. It was spacious, attractive and immaculately clean. A nice sized flat screen TV with cable, an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, shampoo and skin lotion are supplied (Bath & Body Works stuff!!). A microwave would be nice since there is a small... More
