The Malaga served as the perfect site for gathering out-of-town family and friends for a wedding event that was relaxed and elegant. We could not have asked for a more perfect setting and location for ease of city attractions (walking distance) and close proximity to wedding weekend "happenings." The courtyard was a relaxing place for family and friends to gather... More

This hotel was originally built in the 1800s. Be sure and get the owners to tell you the history because it is fascinating!!!! The staff was so very nice and the room we had was very nice and comfortable. We had a view of the courtyard which was beautiful. They set a very nice breakfast which a variety of foods,... More

Recently spent 3 weeks doing a roadtrip from Atlana to San Francisco staying in all sorts of accomodation from chain hotels, to motels to cesars palace to hostels to etc etc (basically every sort of a place) and I can honestly say the Malaga Inn was the best value for money we got accross the 3 weeks. The rooms are... More

We found the Malaga Inn via TripAdvisor as we were passing through...and what a fortunate find it was. This is such a charming place with that southern feel that is so welcoming. The staff was delightful and kind. It was a bargain as well. I highly recommend the slight up charge for the historic section of the Inn. We loved... More

We enjoyed our recent visit to Mobile. The Malaga Inn was the best. Staff was very friendly, room was large and so comfortable. Walked to Saenger from there, several restaurants and bars within walking distance. Courtyard was just beautiful. We will be staying there when ever we go to Mobile, Alabama

It's a beautiful old building with lots so charm. The staff was very nice. The court yard was a great place to gather and visit. But as will old building, there are lots issues; smells very musty, AC doesn't work very well, I felt I needed to wipe everything down with Clorox Wipes & did. In the breakfast room which... More

I'm often frustrated that the only non-corporate hotel options are either cheap and scuzzy or out of my budget. Malaga Inn is a great example of what a mid-range hotel should be: Affordable, friendly, conveniently located and unique. The wrought iron balconies, oak trees dripping with Spanish moss and courtyard fountain are atmospheric, the high ceilings and heavy doors historic... More

Once charming historic Inn, now sadly in need of restoration. Nice staff, holding on while they can. I also had serious concerns about safety (no elevator inspection certificates, broken gas lines, sagging balconies, etc.) it could be lovely again, but will need some serious investment.

Thank you for staying with us, Michael, and for taking the time to write a review. I would like to address some of the concerns you have about the safety of our property. 1)Our elevators are inspected once a month by law. If we do not meet state requirements for safety we would be shut down. 2) There are absolutely... More

Check in went well, clerk was quite helpful. Our room was a completely different story. Our bathroom (oo1) floor was covered with black mud, our trash cans were completely full, there was no coffee for our coffee maker and the remote control for our TV was missing. It is quite noisy but, it is Mardi Gras season. I guess that... More

We are very sorry about the cleanliness of your room during Mardi Gras. If there was indeed black mud on the bathroom floor there is really no excuse for that. Did you notify our front desk staff? Mardi Gras is a hectic time of year for us. There is really nothing we can do about the noise during the Mardi... More

Made a pit stop in Mobile while on a roadtrip. We wanted a unique, non-chain hotel, and we found it at the Malaga Inn! Beautiful, historic, unique charm. Wandered around the building for awhile before we enjoyed the beautiful courtyard. Was also given great advice on what to do while visiting Mobile, and we were able to walk to downtown... More
