This is an older hotel, but the rooms were clean and the service was great. The pool has a great view of the beach. Overall a great location and we had a great time. The hotel is right in the middle of just about everything or only about 2 miles from anything else

If you're looking to get close to the beach during peak season on a budget this might be one of your only options. However, everything else about it wasn't very good. Yes, the floors constantly feel gritty, the elevator was super stuffy and wet 24/7, someone in a different room either next to or below us smoked marijuana on multiple... More

There were several things that keep me from rating this hotel higher, but the location is great. So reviews complained about having to cross the "busy" boulevard, but it wasn't that bad. It's about a 3 minute walk to the shoreline. The third story pool is also nice to relax in after fighting the waves all day. The beds aren't... More

I choose this hotel because of location, free WiFi in room, free breakfast and price. There was no WiFi available in my room; I was told I could use the lobby. Breakfast was crappy biscuits and gravy on foam plates and plasic forks with generic orange juice in a jug on ice in a bowl. The room was disgusting.

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.
