The entryway was rather plain. I was pleasantly surprised with the nice room, large oceanfront balcony, cleanliness, and location. We were within walking distance of souvenir shops and casual dining. There were free umbrellas, lounges, and matresses on the pristine beach. I thought the price for the room was competitive with the fancier chains on small beach area and would... More

Best Western in Gulf Shores, the best service and fun anywhere. Rooms exceptional. Thanks to the manager and all the staff. We enjoyed our stay, the area was fun and there was plenty to do. Just head up the road to Foley and the best shopping anywhere. Also, the beach is beautiful.

We could escape the sun in the middle of the day without going back to our room. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice. When I was a child, the waterfall on... More

The Best Western is on the beach and provides a great view of the Gulf Shores, but it was DIRTY. There was sand on the floor of our room when we arrived, and there was a lump of hair in the "clean" towels I received from the front desk. While the staff was very nice and helpful, the lack of...

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.
