This hotel has friendly and helpful staff, the on-site restaurant had good food and service, and the beds were awesome. This is an older hotel but had made nice updates with room decor and wonderful mattresses! There wasn't free coffee in the lobby, which would have been nice, but the restaurant filled up our coffee thermos for free a couple... More

Ocean view and beach and ocean access great. Hotel average with a high cost, but it is summer. Would be nice if a breakfast was included with stay. Internet in room was not strong. Staff very helpful and room was clean. Hotel is just getting older.

Fantastic hotel, directly on the beach. I would recommend this Best Western in Gulf Shores based on the location and the staff alone. When we arrived the staff was very friendly and helpful with information about local events and restaurants. Our room was neat and clean upon arrival and the housekeeping staff was thorough throughout our stay. The only downside,... More

This place was great. My family and I made an unexpected stop here on a holiday weekend and we weren't disappointed. All we required was a room overlooking the beach. We got that and much more. We were greeted by lovely staff who went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Marilyn went out of her way to accomodate... More

This hotel is a dump. There is obviously no effort made to make the accommodations reflect the price paid. The ownership apparently places no value on beautifying the grounds, the rooms, the office, or basically any areas of the hotel. The building looks like it was built in the 80s and no one has even considered remodeling or modernizing any... More
