The room was fairly clean,except the window faceing the beach was filthy.The door had gapes around it,and the safety lock was broken.You had to go outside to access the elevator witch was very noisey, and scary.The in house breakfast was good and the staff was friendly.It could use some upgrading.

This was a very basic older hotel but was very clean and had friendly and helpful staff. It is right across from the beach with a four lane road between it. The room was very clean tile floor. It also had a table with two chairs, microwave, and fridge. The bed was very comfortable and had three restful nights sleep.

Older hotel and it shows. Not a resort. But the beds were clean and comfortable. No elevators and the neighborhood looked a little scary. No WIFI, washer and dryers were not working. But at 11:30 at night, all I needed was a bed and pillow.

We have stayed in this Hotel for years, because they were pet friendly. My husband is a disabled vet and he has a service dog. No it was not the nicest hotel in the world, but it was very reasonable and in a great location. We did not know the policy had changed and called to get the info on... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for commenting. Of course, a service dog isn’t considered a pet, so this is always taken into consideration. I sincerely apologize that a member of our staff treated you rudely. That’s simply unacceptable, and I will work to correct the situation. We take real pride in offering the best value-priced rooms and great service, and I’m sorry... More

Clean hotel, friendly staff, a few minutes walk to the beach. Good food. Bring a coffee maker. Great value! Alcoholic drinks were so reasonably priced. Mary was super as well as the rest of the staff. Gulf Shores is the place to vacation.

No, this is not a 5 star hotel but for the price it is hard to beat on the beach, okay, across the street from the beach. I needed a cheap place to stay, had already decided that I would be off island but found this place online. No cheaper place for 45 miles. The room was simple but clean.... More

Great location, wonderful neighborhood. The price was reasonable, the parking convenient and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were all incredibly helpful and available. Hotel was across the street from the beach. Excellent restaurant on site. Loved their hot Wings & drink specials. Will stay there again.

They seem to love to say No a lot. The front desk guy was the most unaccommodating and rudest person ever in the hotel business. The windows were so dirty you can't see out of them. Loud DJ music until mid night - then, the boiler or AC unit will send a ringing noise down your spine all night. The... More

While the room's small window had an ocean view across the street between the high rise condos, the room itself was minimal and not that comfy. Only here for one night so it wasn't too bad, but the bed wasn't very comfy. The sheets felt a bit gritty. I think I'd stay inland a bit next time to be at... More
