This is the best place to stay in Gulf Shores. The beach view and access are great. The rooms are nicely furnished, roomy and clean. The staff at this hotel is the friendliest I have ever dealt with. I have stayed at numerous hotels all across the country and you will never find a staff that is nicer or more... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was very clean and comfortable. Cold air and comfortable beds. Everything worked fine! Fantastic view of the beach. Motel restaurant was just a few steps away. We really enjoyed our stay and plan a return visit.

Very good hotel would recommend. The location was excellent for family and singles. The food was good and the wait staff was excellent. I would come again and it also made us want to stay at other Best Western Hotels.

My significant other and I travel alot and have stayed in many hotels. For the price point, this was a good hotel to stay at. We had the room that faced the beach which was quite an awesome view. The staff was friendly every time we came in contact with them. The room itself was comfortable and my better half... More

We actually had reservations at a different hotel, but it was so bad we had to move. We went to the Best Western and Stephanie at the front desk was SO friendly and helpful! She let us tour a room before we booked it to make sure it was clean and suitable. All staff members were very nice and the... More

The pool is in the middle of the lot which is great it's kinda separate from the beach. The rooms were nice sized and very clean. The maid staff are very... More

I've stayed at older beach front hotels and understand they are a different animal. This property is the most overpriced hotel I've ever stayed at. Main pool waterfall does not work, it has been down since the "last hurricane," says the staff. For $300 ($269 + tax + charge for the pack & play for our toddler. The door to... More

This is one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed at. Elevators and stairwells are also extremely clean. Beds are comfy. Updated decor (quartz countertops, updated linens and paint colors). The view from our balcony is unbelievable. We will be back!
