Views were amazing from out sea side room, room looked clean but had a cooped up smell that after we opened the balcony sliding door went away. Decor was dated, shower curtain rod was loose on the wall. Bed was comfortable:) . After two nights I marked my pillow cases & sheets to see if house keeping was doing there... More

Best Western on the Beach in Gulf Shores was a great place to stay! The room was a perfect size and even though the weather wasn't great, we had no problem staying at the hotel. The hotel itself is warm & cute and the rooms have just what you need to enjoy the stay. The views are amazing as well!

I thoroughly enjoyed my overnight stay! The staff is wonderful and the room was refreshingly relaxing for the price. The room was very tastefully decorated - just the right feel for the beach. During my short stay, the two most impressing aspects of the room were the beautiful bathroom and the fresh, clean smell. I am sensitive to smells and... More

The lobby and dinning looked updated, but outside and room seemed outdated. Needs some sprucing up with furniture. Loved the view from out window of the ocean and great price for Nov. Located closed to good restaurants. Easy to get to Fort Morgan from here and Orange Beach activities.

The hotel was nice inside and out. The breakfast is great not no buffet, but made to order while you sit looking at the water and white sand. All the employees were very nice and helpful. Even though it was cold outside the visit was great.

We went in the off-season and during a record cold front, so we appreciated the indoor pool and hot tub! The staff was very accommodating and helpful and kind. The location is excellent, right on the beach. Would definitely go back again.

Room was very clean and also smelled fresh. Staff were great. Breakfast good. Right on the beach with plenty of night life for the evenings. Would recommend for families or couples. Check in was fast and uneventful.
