“Trip for 2 to Gulf Shores”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this Microtel 2 years ago and were pleased with our stay at that time and this time was not different. In fact there were some improvements as they are giving the hotel a little face lift. New Paint, trim, etc. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. It is a Microtel so it is small and when people are loud in the hallway you can hear it fairly clear. But the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and there was even a small flat screen TV in room (2 years ago it was just a tiny little box TV). The hotel is located near most of "the action" in Gulf Shores and is a very short drive away from the beach. If you are making a trip to Gulf Shores on a shoe-string budget (as we were both trips) it's a nice, clean, friendly place to stay.

Assigned a room on the first floor by the back door entrance which I thought could be a sketchy situation with random people coming in so I double locked even though the door locks were loose enough to break. The room- first thing I notice was that this looks nothing like their photos. This is an old hotel- smudged walls, stained tub, stained windows seat cushion, rusty suitcase stand, awful toiletries....Did housekeeping even clean up this room? Walked on broken plastic spoons on the ground. Took off the covers to find a lumpy mattress, wrinkled sheets, and a gaudy old bed skirt. Icing on the cake was finding roaches on the bedskirt. I have the pics to show for it. When I told management, they were nice enough to switch me to another room on the same floor, but could not transfer me to any renovated rooms in the next building since they were sold out. Nice management and all, but this place is overpriced, not clean, small, and in desperate need of a full haul renovation.

Microtel Inn G, Guest Relations Manager at Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Gulf Shores, responded to this review, June 4, 2013
We are very sorry for the inconveniences during your stay. We do acknowledge that all hotels do occasionally have cockroach problems. However, when we are notified of the situation we offer to move the guest to another room. If we are sold out or a guest doesn't want to move we would make other arrangements to make your stay satisfactory. Also when we are notified of bug issues we immediately call an exterminator to come and fix this issue. Once again we are sorry and we do appreciate your feedback.

Sincerely,

Samantha
