While the location is excellent, and the staff very nice, this hotel is outdated and in disrepair. It is in serious need of an update and repairs. NO free breakfast either. Won't go back nor can we recommend it to anyone.

I was in Gulf Shores for a two day conference. Returning to the Best Western on the Beach after nine long hours of lectures and round table discussions was a pleasure. Great location and nice place to relax at night. Convenient to fantastic seafood restaurants and night entertainment. We were able to stay an extra night to enjoy the coast.

We knew we were going to crammed and it would not be as nice as we usually get because we usually rent a condo. But this was a last minute decision trip and we weren't going to stay as long as usual. It was your typical hotel stay with clean linens, towels, and room cleaning service for more towels. It... More

People would feed the birds on the balcony and they would swarm the balcony. The birds also used the outdoor pool as a birdbath. The staff is friendly. The rooms are average, the sliding glass door was hard to open. The indoor pool area had other guests smoking in it.

This Best Western had comfortable beds, nice views of the Gulf and clean pools. The room showed a little wear but that is expected in rooms on the beach. The internet rarely worked and was a source of daily frustration for our 3 day stay. Also, hotel guests felt compelled to break the rules by feeding the sea gulls which... More

We were happy at this hotel. It was a little worn out looking but it was on the beach and half way affordable. We had a great view and the room was very clean. The beds were comfortable and decorated nicely. The bathroom was quite small but not a problem for a short stay. Even though it was spring break,... More
