The entire hotel was booked and we got a street view room instead of ocean view as we had booked. Other than the room mix up, our stay was wonderful! The AC worked really well and the mini kitchenette was wonderful for making breakfast and lunch. Perfect size room for a weekend beach trip!

The hotel itself was average but it did include a mini kitchen and a reasonable priced restaurant. My kids enjoyed the pancakes and hot chocolate among other things in the restaurant but the food was good. I chose this hotel because it was on the gulf shores beach and it is absolutely beautiful. I am very happy our room (301)... More

Michelle was AMAZING. We requested a room last minute because the best Western in Foley would not accept my gift cards. She gave us a discounted great and make sure that all the preparations were in order. I wish there was a free continental breakfast, but the room was clean and the staff was very helpful!

Stephanie was outstanding in her help and kind words. She provided directions and a warm smile. The pool, beach staff and gulf view are beyond comparison. We were there last year, this year and are planning making the Best Western on the Beach our annual destination. One more thing, always have breakfast at the Island Pancake.

My husband set this up as a surprise trip and Heather did everything for him. We had a great time and our room had a beautiful ocean view. The staff at the front desk were awesome and very helpful. We will definitely return to Gulf Shores and stay at Best Western on the Beach.

Not only did Heather save out trip, she turned it into the best trip! Our air conditioner needed replaced in the condo we were staying in and the manager approved a new one immediately and we never went without AC. We were so happy! The place was beautiful! Thanks for saving our trip, we felt safe and comfortable. Excellent beach... More

We had an excellent time here in a room overlooking the beach. Having an awesome person working the front desk can make a vacation. Michelle is such a person! Great service and just a wonderful person to do business with. Many thanks!

My husband and I decided to go at the last minute. We planned to stay 3 nights. When we arrived, we were met with the most welcoming greeting from Michelle at the front desk. I know she sees thousands of people but every day we made a special effort to walk by the front desk and every single time she... More
