Back in April I started planning a trip for 60 Harley riders to tour the Gulf Coast/Spanish Trail. In my search for a hotel that would offer both charm AND amenities (and not break the bank), I stumbled upon the Malaga Inn. After several phone calls to Chris and his staff, I was able to book a block of rooms... More

The hotel is being renovated so maybe its best to wait a little and then it will be a very good place : beautiful patio, nice pool, altogether a little quaint, with rocking chairs available in front of your room overlooking the patio. The nice balcony suite on the facade looked good too even though we did not stayed in... More

Thank you for writing. I am so glad our service standards were to your liking. We are in renovations currently but they are really coming along well. We have 13 of the 27 bathrooms completed and are very satisfied with the result. The bathrooms will be a more luxurious experience for our guests than the former. We hope you will... More

There's a sense of graceful, charming decline here, and I mean that in the most complimentary way--the Malaga Inn fits perfectly among the old trees, moss, and antebellum architecture of historic Mobile. We felt "connected" to the heartbeat of the old city. To be clear, everything was clean and worked just fine in our "standard room," and we had a... More

Thanks GrillVogel, We feel that our property does reflect the heart beat of the city as you say in your review. I appreciate how you described us as "gracefully in decline". I know exactly what you mean by that. We are in the process of renovating and I hope the next time you stay with us you will think that... More

We were traveling from TX to GA. The hotel is extremely convenient to I-10 & I-65. We arrived late but Jordan met us with a smile and was most helpful getting us checked in quickly. The room was neat & comfortable. The hotel is undergoing some renovations but it did not interfere with our stay. The other staff members were... More

We paid a lot for a 1 night stay in this hotel. The atmosphere is good, however the (most expensive and "remodeled") room we booked needed immediate renovation. The shower didn't worked als it shoud be, the tv didn't work and more. It was certainly not remodeled. The breakfast was so poor, we traveled around for 3 weeks, and never... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry your experience with us was not satisfactory. The room you were in was not a "remodeled" room as you stated in your review. We are in the process of renovating but we have only completed the rooms on the first floor of the property. There may... More

I cannot recommend this Inn enough! We checked in on a Saturday evening and was met by the most wonderful southern lady who not only checked us in, upgraded our reservation and gave us a very comprehensive run down of the local area, but was just a delight, nothing was too much trouble, which really should be their moto here...

My wife and I heard about the Malaga Inn at an information stop on the interstate. We were greeted by a friendly front desk attendant and was given a room in the oldest part of the Inn. We just love all the old wood work and charm that the Inn has to offer. It is a piece of history with... More

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

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

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
