One step into the lobby of the Admiral Semmes and you immediately know it is not just another chain name hotel. The huge glass chandelier and winding staircase looks like something out of the movies. We have stayed at this hotel very month for the past year and yes, it may be outdated to some, but it is the decor,... More

Hubby and I had an impromptu trip to Mobile for the night and stayed here. The room was clean, bed comfy, but it was definitely in need of a little facelift. In the halls the wallpaper was peeling and some of the decor could use a little refresher. On the positive side it was inexpensive, clean, and they had sleep... More

I adore this hotel. It is like stepping back into the 40's in the best sense of it. Everything is plush and regal. The restaurant has comfy easy chairs instead of hard wooden ones, the bar is spacious and everyone that works there are SO NICE. I cannot express how nice they all are. The rooms have their own dressing... More

The staff was defensive which was our first warning. Problems with the ac, carpets stained, pool needed cleaning, hot tub not filled, outdated look in rooms. I was really looking forward to the stay but was let down big. It could be beautiful!

A couple of days ago my father and I stayed at the Admiral Semmes while visiting Mobile. While the room was fairly priced ($100 with tax), it was a dump. The wallpaper outside the elevator on our floor was falling off and no effort to repair it was being undertaken. The windows in the room were filthy and difficult to... More

When looking for hotels, we prefer the older, historic locations vrs the chain hotels with all the amenities. While the Admiral does look like some of his glory days are behind him, we found the hotel to be charming and the staff sweet and helpful. In the two rooms we rented, the TVs and WiFi worked well, the sleep number... More

I "named my own price" on Priceline and got what I thought was a good deal. They added tax and that was it. There was no other mention of any other fees. I scoured all the information they sent me to make sure that was the final amount owed. The hotel was downtown and you can park in their protected... More

When I walked into the lobby of the hotel I was impressed. It appeared clean and well taken care of. Completely different story when I got out of the elevator upstairs. When we stepped out of the elevator the wallpaper was peeling off of the wall...in a very obvious way! We stayed in Room 505, and there were large stains... More

Attempted to check in at ten after three when the check in time was three o'clock. They did not have a room ready. This was a problem for many people as they tried to check in. I actually had 2 rooms reserved and when they did become available I was willing to allow someone else to take one of my... More

We booked this room in advance months ago so we could be close to the civic center for a Mardi Gras ball. First, I was charged for two rooms instead of one. They corrected this with no problem. We went to check in about 2:00 PM this past Friday and were told our room would not be ready until after... More
