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. The owners have remodled this to what it us today and we enjoyed it. The place has an attached parking garage that is also used for the downtown area but it is... More

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 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.

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
