We stayed here for one night... Kinda glad it was only one night... Nothing wrong with the hotel, looks lovely and beautiful! Only problem was at night... Seems like it has no aircon at all! Just a fan... I was absolutely boiling in my skin practically all night... It's a shame really because everything else seems pretty good... Only downside... 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. We had a great view of the city at night. I have read complaints about the parking. It is free, in the garage next door and about... More

Walked in the hotel and it looks great. Staff friendly. It's a historic hotel so I expect it to have some old feeling to it. My room was great. No mold, water damage bleach spots or nothing. Just clean. I'll stay again for $60 a night on hotel.com.

This place was perfectly located in downtown mobile within a block walking distances of some of the best restaurant and pubs in Mobile! It's an older hotel but has a lot class to it. They were in the middle of a hotel wide remodel while we were visiting and messed up our room completely. When we told their staff, they... More

Have stayed at the Admiral twice now in the past 2 months. Both times we had a blast. The staff is friendly and goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of. On our first trip, we made our reservation online. When we got there to check in, the front desk clerk quickly checked us in and... More

You can smell the fried foods from the in-hotel restaurant when you step into the place, which to me, is not a good thing. The key cards appear to have to be changed out every day. The room smelled horrendous, like the plumbing had backed up.... it smelled so bad I went out and bought room fresheners, but even that... More

The staff is so helpful, and friendly. They have a great piano bar, and the best coffee in the state. It is walking distance from all the great restaurants, and bars in town. There is a great espresso bar, restaurant and the rooms are equipped with great coffee, and great views of the city. I love this hotel, it's very... More

Must try to keep emotions in check and just stick to the facts. This hotel was recommended by our service and usually they have really god suggestions. Not this time. Checked in rather late. They give you room keys and then you can bring your luggage up before going around the block to the public parking garage. You need the... More

I had stayed at the Admiral Semmes hotel a couple of years ago and found it to be shabby but kind of charming. We had to spend the night in Mobile again, so I decided to book the Admiral Semmes again because of the downtown location. The first room that we were given smelled horrible and the carpet was dirty... More
