“Always looking forward to staying at this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I have to travel to Gulf shores on business for the summer and will be flying every other weekend. I was so relieved when I arrived at Staybridge that first weekend. The hotel is beautiful and clean. The rooms are spacious and the staff are very friendly and accomodating. Christian is always there to greet us with a smile and is very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Gulf Shores. I also enjoy the breakfast and they have a lovely shaded gazebo area by the pool to relax.

The hotel charges $75 for your dog per stay, which is on the high side. but they do give your dog a toy and the staff are very friendly. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The kitchenette in our room was perfect for when we wanted to eat lunch in our room. The staff was very helpful providing restaurant recommendations and directions. The free breakfast was very good, with the hot food changing daily. As none of the hotels on the beach allowed dogs, this was a great option.

Stuck without a place to stay. Because our rv was in shop. We have two dogs, they charge a non-refundable $75, but the rooms are large with a kitchenette. The staff is great and I would stay here again and again! The night manager, ( a young Asian male) was the friendly and very helpful, he made our stay perfect.

Stayed over the holiday weekend for a company picnic with the family. Rooms were very clean and breakfast was much better than we expected. Just a few minutes from the beach and restaurants are easily accessible nearby. Would definitely stay again.

Single shout out to Christian at the service desk but this was a great experience and will always try to stay at a staybridge because of this stay. our first family trip together we had a lil bump but when i say took care of everything calm and prompt made everything worth it. i really did enjoy the staff and the room. If you are looking for a great place to stay right around the corner to the beach and want to bring your dog or pet please stay here. 5 star staff thank yall. The Williams family

Room Tip: large family do 2 bed room suite it will help and try to face the pool better then the street

This hotel met our needs 100% when we visited Gulf Shores. I am going to post observations that may or may not help you make your choice.

1. Very clean hotel. I am what you could call a germ freak, and I was impressed by the rooms and the common areas (pool, breakfast area, workout room).

2. The rooms have a full size fridge! This was a pleasant surprise and helped keep beer and leftovers.

3. Breakfast is offered free each morning. It is basic, but such a nice option for people on a budget or that are not looking for large breakfast. We enjoyed the large dinners out, and this breakfast was perfect for us.

4. Managers drinks/food during the week nights. We never ate the food, but the drinks (wine and beer) were a very nice surprise. For a hotel, this place had a lot to offer.

5. Decent sized pool (not heated) and no hot tub.

6. This is a considerable drive from the beach. It was about 15 minutes from the public beach. For us, it was well worth the money we saved and the nice amenities we got here, but it was a bit of a drive.

7. We are a young couple, and we did notice that the majority of people staying were snowbirds there for longer stays. If you are looking for young, rowdy crowds (we were not) this would not be the environment for you. If you want friendly and quiet, this is it!

I think our greatest disappointment was the distance. It ended up being well worth it because the hotel was nice, but I do think that some of the other reviews were a bit misleading. You cannot walk anywhere from here unless you want to walk a highway.

We would not hesitate to stay here again! It is a great option for the cost!

This was a rewards night stay and they gave us a handicap room. The bathroom had 2 of 3 lights burned out, and the bath tub had silverfish! The maintenance guy was prompt and took care of both items. Breakfast the next morning, fruit was only melon, no other fresh fruit. Ice build up the night before, they had a whole pile of salt and yet the sidewalks were only salted immediately in front of the door. Not down the side of the building, though you could see at least another 20 bags of salt unused at 10:00 in the morning. We slept well, after the bathroom was touched up it was good. Location great! Issues we experienced are all "fixable"; maybe would stay again.

Cynthia T, General Manager at Staybridge Suites Gulf Shores, responded to this review, February 5, 2014
First of all I am very sorry your room was not up to standards. That is not how we normally operate. I am glad that the problems you encountered in your room were quickly fixed.

I am also sorry our complimentary breakfast did not meet your expectations. We did happen to run out of one of the two cut melons we traditionally offer, but we also had on hand that day fresh whole apples, oranges, and bananas.

I see your stay with us was during a rare ice storm that we normally do not experience in this area! We did purchase 7 bags of salt and we used several of them to cover all of our sidewalks and entrances to keep from having any ice build up on them. Because most of our sidewalks were in the sun, the salt had already melted on them, but the residue was still working! I am sure it seemed we only did the entrances because they were in shaded areas and the salt had not melted yet. Rest assured we take the safety of our guests very seriously! We kept the remaining bags in case the weather deteriorated again. Once again, I am so very sorry your visit was not all it should have been. We do value your business and hope that you will try us again.
