We got a room on the ocean-view side and were VERY happy with the view and proximity to the beach. We old folks could sit on the balcony and watch the teens on the beach. The kitchenette was more than I expected- it had burners as well as the usual basics, and I was also surprised to find pots and... More

Great location, rooms were very small even thought we had an efficiency. We had 3 people in our room but the efficiency kitchen only has two plates, two glasses, one coffee mug and some random silverware. It was more expensive because we were there during spring break and you can rent a 2-3 bedroom condo for the same price which... More

This hotel is located on the Beach which it name implies. I received top notch service from all employees there, The rooms where clean and fresh. It was great to look out the balcony window at the ocean every morning. The pools where cleaned daily and could smell the chlorine in them so you know they were well maintained. Would... More

Location,location, and location. This hotel is right on the beach. Granted the hotel could use a few updates, but a really good value especially with the decent size indoor pool for those rainy days. The front desk lady when I checked in, almost positive her name is Heather provided exception guest service. If you are looking for a great value,... More

had never stayed in Gulf Shores. This hotel was great. The staff was wonderful. Southern hospitality for sure. We were checking in and heard Christian music playing. That's a plus! The beds were so soft. The pillows were great. No stiff neck from them. Great view of the ocean. We ate at the hotel restaurant. They had The Lord's Prayer... More

We booked last minute, so it was pretty pricey. :( Then we drove by our hotel and it didn't look that nice, especially for the price. BUT when we walked in to register, the front lobby was nice and Heather was extremely nice and helpful. We arrived before check in time and she told us she would try to get... More

This Best Western definitely lacking decor! When I say "lacking" I should say that the decor is NONEXISTENT! The hallway and our room where sterile white. The bathroom could have been cleaned better. The housekeeping staff was not able to understand my request for taking the dirty towels that were left on the balcony. The internet connection in our room... More

This Hotel has a great convenient location on the beach. The Staff is extremely friendly and helpful many as we learned have worked here for many years. Fair prices. Now the downside; this Hotel is generally clean (except common areas, balconies and pool area. They need some attention-presure washing) The Hall ways, Rooms and restrooms are Clean. However, Overall the... More

We really had a great time here. The staff was so friendly. Especially at check in and throughout our stay. They were happy to chat with us about great family friendly restaurants that the locals love. Really enjoyed the christian music playing in the lobby. The beds and linens were AMAZING!!! The very best out of all of the Best... More
