If you want to explore the Gulf Coast from Mobile to New Orleans this is an ideal staging point. I10 and 90 give you easy access to everywhere. We went in the off season and found much to do in this region. If gambling is your thing, Beau Rivage is right across the street. This Best Western gives you the basics you need. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast is adequate and always well stocked. The microwave and refrig. in the rooms need to be upgraded. We could not adjust the temperature and had food freeze solid overnight.
