“Not Bad at All”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2005

I booked this hotel to attend a wedding in May. I was worried when I read the previous reviews, but I was pleased with my stay. When we arrived to the hotel, the parking was fine & our room was clean. The AC will free your toes off if your not careful (Ha Ha). The hotel restaurant has a great breakfast buffet & the pool area is nice & supplied with clean towels by the staff. The hotel is in walking distance to a few attractions (Art Museum & Exploretorium). The only downside was our room key cards had probelms. We had to get two different sets made because when we would swipe the card nothing would happened & we could not get into our room. Also, check your bill to make sure there are no room service charges that are not yours-it was not a probelm for the front deck to fix. Overall, I liked the hotel & would stay here again for the price (about $100) a night.

We were not pleased with this hotel at all. The rooms need a great deal of work. The ceiling was cracking, the wallpaper was falling off of the wall, the bathroom was so small you could barely shut the door. The pool was very small also and needed cleaning. I have stayed in cheap hotels that were in better shape than this one

I conduct an annual business trip to Mobile, AL every year and I always stay at the Radisson Admiral Semmes Hotel. The hotel is very quaint and appealing. A restaurant/bar on the premises including room service. I must say that the food is really good at the restaurant including a buffet breakfast (hot and cold). Located in near a small downtown area for easy and safe strolling.

The Radisson Admiral Semmes is one of the nicer hotels I have stayed in. I just finished a review of the Lafayette Plaza Hotel across the street from the Radisson. We checked out of the LPH 20 minutes after checking in because it was filthy. The Radisson took us in with open arms. Elegantly restored old hotel. The age of the hotel shows in a nice way. The rooms are nice with ceiling fans which you don't find very often. Very clean hotel and the front desk was friendly and courteous. It's a treat to stay in a vintage hotel which has been carefully restored to make it a wonderful place to stay. I highly recomend this hotel if you are travelling to Mobile.
