I traveled to the Best Western on the Beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama in October of 2014 for a family vacation. We chose this hotel for the location and the pools.

The location is right on the beach. It's worth spending a little extra to get a beach view room. It was great to open the window and listen to the ocean waves in the morning.

This was a great place for a beach vacation. The staff, especially Heather was very helpful in assisting with our room. It was great to be right on the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay here again.

Really a great place for a beach vacation. Walk right out the door on to beach. Great balcony to see and hear surf. One of the most comfortable beds you can find. The staff were all eager to assist in any way. Centrally located so you couldwalk to almost anything you would want to do.

My son and visited Gulf Shores before school started. He and I had a blast, we had a beach view room with easy access to the beach. For a beach vacation this is a great, reasonable place to stay with a very friendly staff.

This was a great place to stay. close to shopping and resturants; close enough to walk. fun for the whole family just a short walk away; great to be right on the beach. the room did have a mildew smell and adjusting the air did not help.

Do not stay at this place. Rooms smell like cigarettes, towels dirty, hairs in the bed. On top of all that, some random decided it would be cool to vandailze my truck by putting an orange pylon on my hood.
