Overview: Easy Pretty affordable Fun This place is always a good, easy, and fun place to enjoy the Alabama Gulf Coast. Was a nice place to enjoy for years. We have not been back this year, but hope to soon. It is also quite popular, so try to plan a little ahead. Even though you may think it's a simple... More

No complaints about this Holiday Inn Express, except the usual that the walls are too thin for my taste. Even luxury hotels can have this problem - try staying at one that allows pets and enjoy listening to dogs yap all night while paying big bucks! Anyway, I had a King Suite which provided a nice amount of space, with... More

Hotel was clean, nice shower, set up to deal with sand (tile floors, even part way into the room), close to publix, several miles from beach and foley outlet mall. Was here for a soccer tournament during spring break (why?!!), & paid 250 a night. Ouch. Hence the 4 stars. Staff was nice and let us check out late, so... More

My fiancé and I went for his bday and the hotel was awesome!! We had a spacious room and bathroom, very clean, quiet, and nice comfy bed! Staff was very pleasant and breakfast was very fresh. Even the biscuits were soft! The swimming pool is on the small side, but still enjoyable. The hot tub was not hot but very... More

nice clean rooms, reasonably priced with a very good breakfast included. We only come to Gulf Shores once a year and have tried different places - this is definitely a winner - we will come back to this location

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The rooms are very well appointed, the service is great, and the breakfast is fresh and hot (real eggs and wonderful cinnamon buns). The managment staff, particularily Mr. Martin, goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed. I come to Gulf Shore every year for my sorority reunion and... More

We usually stay at Marriott hotels, but decided to try out a Holiday Inn Express because of it's lower price and location. I did not want to stay on the beach, but close enough that we could enjoy the amenities of being in a beach town without having to deal with the traffic and noise. This hotel was PERFECT. The...

This property offered everything that I want, and look for in a hotel: excellent value, good location, free parking, free WiFi, free breakfast, and exceptional service. We felt extremely comfortable during our stay because we were treated very well, had a wonderfully comfortable and perfectly clean room, and we were able to get a good nights' sleep. The property offers... More

We were there for 4 nights, and during our whole stay had no internet connection despite talking to management. The last night, we lost our TV reception as well. Breakfast was okay, but they kept running out of food.

As a single female traveler, I have found this hotel to be the perfect place for a single night or multiple night stay. It is located off the highway, so quiet is guaranteed, plus it has a neighborhood feel, which allows one to walk to nearby stores. The staff, from the desk to the breakfast room, go out of their...
