We stayed here overnight during Spring Break due to bad weather while we were camping at the state park. The room was very nice, with updated linens and furnishings, granite in the bath, and a mini fridge, coffee pot and microwave, which are always nice to have in a room. It was extremely clean and comfortable. The morning breakfast was... More

We had a very quick overnight here on our East to West Coast bike tour - we had planned to be in Mobile, but time and daylight ran out and we decided to stop off in Gulf Shores instead. As it was the middle of Spring Break we were just happy to get a hotel room anywhere, but I have... More

Nice, new, clean, comfortable. I got a great AAA rate and enjoyed my time here. I would recommend this place if you are only staying a day or two in Gulf Shores and don't want to pay on the beach prices. Its only a few blocks from the beach so the location is great. I will stay here again. Also,... More

We were in Gulf Shores last night for a dinner and wine tasting get together with friends and by the fourth course of the meal we knew that driving back home to Mobile was not a good idea. So we booked a last minute hotel deal at this location. This was an absolutely wonderful stay! We had a great time.... More

Newer, clean hotel with plenty of free parking. Not too far from beach - walkable, but there is a large park with parking area so I drove. Breakfast was standard fare that I expect from Holiday Inn, but no complaints since it was included in the price of the stay. I'd stay here again.

First time in Gulf Shores so stayed here due to reviews. Our room was on main floor on south side and had high ceilings. Room was very large and clean. As a matter of fact, our room was much larger than most of our much more expensive rooms in other places we have stayed. We enjoyed breakfast. (Especially the little... More

Stayed here during a golf tournament nearby. The room was large, bed comfortable, stocked with all the amenities that a hotel has. The breakfast had a good selection of items.

This was a great hotel to stay in while visiting the beach. The room was lovely and clean. The location made it affordable and just minutes away from the beach. The front desk staff was friendly. Breakfats was great, especially the little cinnamon rolls!!! Mmmmm!

Our six night stay here was uneventful and comfortable. The hotel is situated about 1.5 miles from the beach. For the fitter amongst us this is quite walkable and there is a sidewalk all the way. Despite the booking for a standard room, my IHG Platinum status meant we were allocated one of their larger "suites"; as requested on the... More

We booked this hotel last minute when we had to come to town for a funeral. The staff was friendly, the rooms were nice and the location was fantastic. Although it might have been because it was the off season, I found the hotel to be incredibly quiet. The beds were a little too hard for my taste, but that's... More
