We stayed at Best Western on the Beach the week of the 12th of July 2015. We had a great time. The room is clean, bed was very, very comfortable. Everyone from the reservation person to check in person was so nice. We don't have any negative remarks about this hotel. The price is a lot since its summer but... More

This hotel is far too old and outdated for the rates. Great ocean views, but the plumbing didn't work well, the bathroom smelled sour, our entrance was right next to the air conditioning roof, we had two old plastic chairs on our balcony, with no table for our drinks or phones. Our balcony also was right above an unsightly roof... More

The friendly staff provided our family with wonderful service giving us an unforgettable beach vacation! The staff at BW on the Beach was very resourceful and provided great advice and directions for the best restaurants and activities for our family! My family is already asking when we can go back!

Definitely won't be wasting my money here again. We started out trying to see if they had any rooms to accommodate 6 people and they didn't. No surprise there. The front desk staff assured us we could pay $20 and get a full sized cot to fit in the room in addition to the other 2 queen sized beds. Great!... More

Room appeared to be recently redone, very nice, excellent view, bed very comfortable. All the staff very helpful and pleasant. Price is not cheap but considering other properties I checked it was in line for the area and reasonable.

We were in route back to FL and heard so many great things about Gulf Shores AL we decided to give it a try. We did not have a reservation so I called and spoke to Michelle at the front desk who was very helpful. We went to the hotel to check it out and Michelle greeted us and gave... More

I will not be back. The room never cooled to a comfortable temp. It was not the cleanest room and the linens had hair and lint balls on them. For the price I was not pleased. The only thing I liked was we had Ocean view but honestly I would rather drive and park at the beach rather to stay... More
