Malaga is a sweet wine from Spain. Unfortunately I did not find this place so sweet. It was a wild card for our trip. We were hoping to get an idea of the Old Southern Charm and ambience. The hotel is convenient enough, but as stated in other reviews, it’s in dire need of refurbishment. Which from what we were... More

Laguna Gypsy Thank you for taking the time to write. All I can say is that our renovations are coming. Thank you for mentioning the T.V. in the lobby. It isn't very classy and I have been looking for an excuse to get rid of it. I am sorry that your experience with us was sub-par. I hope you will... More

As they say of older, well-built houses, this place has good bones. The rooms are large, the courtyard is very nice, and the overall layout is excellent. But this hotel has lost some of its luster since Ronald Reagan (pictured in the lobby) stayed here. The staff was incredibly friendly and the hotel was clean throughout, but it would benefit... More

Michael S, I want to thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. What can I say? I think that your description of our property is pretty accurate. We do have great bones and we are a very close walk to everything downtown our staff is great. However, we do realize that the... More

Stayed in a historic room the first night - and then moved to Courtyard room the second night. Reason for move - I am 5 feet tall and the beds are very high... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and for you generous score. I am so glad you enjoyed our courtyard rooms.. Everyone's tastes are different we do have many guests that enjoy the courtyard rooms more than the historic. We really hope to see you again soon. Warm wishes Jordan More

We stayed at the Malaga Inn on the 4th of July and it was in a great location for dinner then fireworks at the bay. It has a very appealing entrance that takes you back 100+ years and a very inviting courtyard. The rooms in the addition are out dated but you can tell that from the pictures. I didn't... More

This Inn was recommended through the Visitor Center and we couldn't be happier with it. It's a historic Hotel and the owner of the place greeted us with a warm welcome and was very helpful in finding a good restaurant specialized for Oysters, just a few blocks away. Our room was very clean and we like the homey feel to... More

I took an impromptu trip to Mobile, and found Malaga Inn through Expedia. I could not be happier with my stay. The price was reasonable, the staff was helpful, the room was spotless, and the location was close to Dauphin Street, which is the main strip in town.

This is a beautiful historic building. It is close to the restaurants and bars. The rooms are clean and nicely painted that look out on to a beautiful courtyard but everything is so old in the rooms such as taps that don't work very well.
