This had to be the worst hotel me and my family ever visited. The pictures are very deceiving. The rooms are filthy with mold and roaches or sheets were old and dingy the mattress worn out. I don't recommend this place at all

We stayed very busy season, we are five in one room. Towels are always short and asked to bring them, they never bring them. Sofa bed is broken, we used suitcase for mattress keep steady. Restaurant is not bad, but it takes long time to bring food out. There is free breakfast and this is the worst. Orange juice is... More

Great location close to beach. Pool was nice. Comfy bed. I didn't care for their pillows. Room always smelled clean. Floor was dirty every day. If mopped; was done with dirty water. Feet would turn black on bottom just from one evening. Gross! Water pressure in shower was bad, had to rinse hair with shower off and from faucet every... More

My hubby and I were able to take a "mini vacation" at Beachside Resort. Check in was super easy. Our room was ready a little before actual check in time. The room was very clean. The free breakfast was fine. Nothing to complain about. It tied us over. Easy walk to the beach. Are actually going back again this next... More

I'm from California, and I flew to New Orleans to visit family. My family decided to drive to the Gulf Shores for a spontaneous beach trip. We got 3 rooms. All of the rooms smelled like cigarette smoke, which wasn't good for my baby cousin in their room. The shower drain wasn't working, and I'm guessing it's because of all... More

The outside of the hotel looks very nice. The rooms are ok . They have tile floors, dirty old curtains and you can barely see out the windows. Our room had flies in it. The pool was very nice and it was on the 3rd floor with a great view of the Gulf. We stayed there just one night.

Four women in one room and we had plenty of space for all. The room was very clean and comfortable. The TV didn't work upon arrival, but maintenance was johnny-on-the-spot and fixed it while we went to work on our tans. It is located just across the highway from the beach, but it was an easy and quick walk to... More

If you like flies and terrible service, this is the place for you! Nothing here looks clean, it's run down, smells funny and the people that work here just seem so unhappy to be here. It's really sad. Our bartender, handed us a drink and has been gone for the past 20 min. What bar tender just leaves his guests??!... More

They knew it was a business trip yet put me next to the karaoke bar. Very unprofessional people that doesn't care about the customers. Loud rooms. They told me "we rent this room all the time" "it was the last room" for 2 nights. If they had told me this I would have never agreed to stay here. Hair is... More

I was surprised to find the room smell to be completely clean. This is always a big pet peeve of mine and I was very pleased. I think the ceramic floors make a huge difference. Bedding was also very clean and updated. We were in rm 508. U can see the waterfront from our rm. Could not ask for better... More
