We were truly excited to stay in a historical home that was converted into a inn. If your truly into historical homes, buildings etc this is the place to be. If your expecting Hilton style loding this is not the place for you. If you have a love of history and its decore and beautiful staircases and those imperfections you... More

We stayed here for two nights last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is perfect for historic Mobile and the hotel had a very old south ambience. The rooms were clean, charming and the hotel had a very nice courtyard. The continental breakfast was quite good and the staff was friendly and helpful. The staff gave us great restaurant... More

If you want to stay in a place that is quintessential south, then the Malaga might be the place. The porch creaks, the floor creaks but it's all part and parcel of the charm. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Rates are reasonable and the staff is most attentive. The room had a balcony and the bed... More

Thank you for writing such a nice description of our property. Yes, the floors creak in some places but we, like you, feel that it is part of the charm. 201 isn't the only room that has a balcony, however. We do have five other rooms that have private balconies making it a total of 6. We hope you will... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was great and super convenient. The room was clean and quaint. The whole establishment has a charm about it. Do not expect a chain hotel. Great location to all the museums, shopping, and dining in downtown Mobile. Free parking! This point cannot go overlooked in a city.

This hotel has so much potential. It captures the real southern charm of old town Mobile, Al. The staff are friendly, but the place is very tired. Some hot water to clean with, some general maintenance, little landscaping & flowers could transform this place. If you cared you would clean the pool, even if it was just for show!!! That... More

Italianjob, Thank you for taking the time to write. I am sorry you had a negative experience with us. It sounds like you stayed with us during Mardi Gras. All I can say is that during Mardi Gras our property just gets destroyed. There is so much cleaning up and maintenance during and after Mardi Gras you wouldn't believe it.... More

Lovely and charming hotel in downtown Mobile. Additionally, it is an excellent value. I spent a long weekend there recently and loved it's walking proximity to all that downtown Mobile has to offer. Definitely going to return.

Don't be fooled by the reviews. The pictures speak for themselves. The location was great for where we needed to be, and parking was a breeze. Other than that, it was not a place that can be recommended. The outside of the hotel and the lobby was charming... that where the charm ended. The sheets did not fit the bed.... More

Beautiful, charming, historical, etc. Many words can be used to describe this Inn. If you are looking for a typical "cookie cutter" hotel experience then drive on; this inn is not for you. We could not have asked for a better experience here. The inn keepers were super friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions when asked. The location was excellent... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but we met one of the family owners, Jordan, during a visit to Mobile for a race weekend.

This historic hotel is just beautiful. The rooms are very nice and clean. There may be a little bit of noise if there's a wedding happening. The location is great. Just a few blocks from the entertainment district. The staff was very friendly and check-in was a breeze. They also have their own parking lot with free parking.
