The staff was friendly and the location was great. However, the sleep number mattress wouldn't work, tv reception was very bad and for $180 a night I expected more. If I were to go back to Mobile, AL I would stay at the Malaga. We had friends in that hotel and for the same price they got a great breakfast!

The facility of th room seemed very old. Inside the room, i could have slept on the couch it would have been more comfortable than the beds. Toilet didn't work right ,looked absolutely musty and old. Microwave and fridge were not included in most of rooms. The only thing we were impressive was about guest services even though the room... More

The hotel is what it is, it is undergoing renovations but was satisfactory for our walk down memory lane during my recent trip home to Mobile AL.

I'd read several reviews and once again I went with gut. When you walk in, it feels like you've stepped back in time. We checked in around 7 pm and the young lady at front desk was super in every way. There was a mix up with our room but by the time we were in our 2nd room, she... More

A 1940's hotel with charm. For those of us that like vintage buildings, this is a real winner! The staff keeps it extremely cleaned and shined. The desk people were very nice and friendly. The restaurant was closed for remodeling during my stay but that did not bother me as downtown Mobile has several eating establishments within walking distance. My... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Somehow expected a bit more. Counter staff were very nice with one exception (see below). Rooms were dated (which is what we expected in a landmark hotel) and needed some TLC but clean. Only real disappointment was lack of eating facilities. The in-hotel restaurant was only open for lunch so had to go elsewhere for any... More

This us a very neat older bldg in downtown Mobil. It's got some really great architecture and if you enjoy older buildings then you will like this one.

I normally stay near I65 hotels due to visiting my son at USA. But I wanted to stay downtown near park where the pep rally would be. And I'm glad I did. Was two blocks away from park and nightlife. The hotel was spectacular. The staff was very nice. I was always greeted when passing thru the lobby. Only downfall,... More

We loved this hotel. I guess I might describe it as trashy chic, in a really good way. Love the older decor. The rooms are not huge, but very comfortable - and clean.
