Sothern hospitality

I sent my wife in as parking a 50' rig isn't that easy in Gulf Shores. She came out with several wonderful suggestions from one of the ladies working there. Thanks you for all of your help and hospitality.

Welcome Center in Gulf Shores
Dec 2020
This Welcome Center is very clean and roomy. They also had a bag ready for a person to pick up as soon as you walk in their front doors - with local coupons, etc.

I stopped in primarily for some local knowledge, which they provided. Was happy to find clean restrooms as well. Small, but sufficient welcome center.

Retirement/Girls Trip to Gulf Shores was Awesome!!
Sep 2020 • Friends
I love visiting Gulf Shores And Orange Beach, AL. The people there are so friendly. The ladies at the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach welcome centers are always friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We were given packets of information and coupons to use during our stay. Due to COVID, We were also given a small bottle of hand sanitizer to use which showed how much the tourism industry cares about the safety of their visitors.

Not very welcoming
Aug 2020
This was only our second visit to Gulf Shores and we stopped at the welcome center to check out some of the things to do and places to eat. I'm sure at one time this was a welcoming place, but not now. The over reaction to Covid 19 was ridiculous. We were the only ones there but we had to enter one door and leave another. All of the brochures were shrink wrapped tightly so you couldn't get one. We had to keep calling out which ones we wanted and after a while we felt like we were inconveniencing the girl. I'm sure it wasn't her fault and she was just doing what she was told to do. It's been a few days and we are finding brochures all over Gulf Shores with no restrictions. Daily you can pick up things in a grocery store that have been touched by who knows how many people but you can't pick up a paper brochure at the Welcome Center! We did not leave there feeling welcome.

Thank you for visiting our Welcome Center. Your opinion is understood. Many State Welcome Centers have remained closed and have chosen not to open. Our hospitality employees have all remained healthy and active due to the Welcome Center precautions. I understand it is an inconvenience to ask for a brochure but the health and safety of everyone that enters our center is our main concern. We are making every precaution to take guest and employee safety seriously during this unprecedented time. The wrap is to keep multiple guests from touching brochures and to limit contact to just our employee (who just sanitized their hands) and you. Our efforts do not inhibit the guests from retrieving any requested information. We are always willing and welcoming in our centers to provide our guests with as much detail and any literature that we have available. We continue to work on social distancing with guests as have found the need to educate visitors to follow recommendations during this time. We look forward to being able to serve you when we can relax these restrictions. We invite you to stop in on your next visit in hopefully a Pandemic free environment. Until then be safe and enjoy your excursions.
