Looks like a 1960/70's type of motel and unfortunately from the outside it looks like that's the last time it may have been painted or the parking lot was repaved. However the rooms are very clean and comfortable, flat screen tv's, and the place was quiet for a motel. It's located about a 5 iron away from Mobile Bay, an... More

Nice hotel. All previous comments were spot on. Great accommodating staff. :) they even accepted AARP discount. King size bed, hot shower, could use a coffee maker. I'd stay again. Nice walking sidewalks to beach, restaurants and VFW close for coctails.

So this hotel is very quiet & clean. The staff where nice and the room in a while was cleaner than some rooms I have paid double for at other hotels. My one issue is how miss leading the pictures where of the room. We stayed on the first floor of the main building (just down from the office) and... More

To be honest, upon arrival this place looked pretty dated. From check in to check out I have nothing but nice things to say! The room was clean, the staff friendly and the location was great. A few minutes drive to downtown Fairhope and a block from a great waterside walking park. The restaurant next door was busy so I... More

Outside may need a little renovating, but the manager ,Neil, and his staff were very accommodating and friendly. This is definitely a cute mom and pop hotel! Our room had a nice granite vanity and was stocked with Bath and Body Works Products! Across the street from us was a nice beach area where were we got to watch Fairhope's... More

We had to find a place to stay overnight at the last minute due to AC problems. Since we had a pet, our choices were limited. We were able to stay here. It was very quiet. The beds were small but comfortable. We stayed one night in the old section and one. In the new section. There is a BIG... More

This place is ok very clean and in a good location, the rooms are ok and the staff are friendly. The air con is very noisy so you may want ear plugs. To eat there is a really good restaurant that does seafood and stake about 10 min walk away. There is also a restaurant next to this place but... More

You don't pay for the motel. It's old, uncomfortable beds, not many amenities, but clean. You are however, paying for the location. A walk across the street and you are smack dab at the bay and you can easily grab a bench for a prime location to view the sunsets. You also have the Eastern Shore Trail that you can... More

With nothing booked, we decided Barons By The Bay for its location, and mindful of some older reviews saying the exterior needs some TLC. Location was spot on, and it still needs some TLC on the exterior, but dont judge it just by appearances. Looking closer, we noticed a couple promising little things such as the fact that the windows... More

The outside is dismal and rundown but the rooms that have been renovated aren't bad. Nothing fancy, but clean and more modern than the outside would lead you to believe. The view is not exactly what is posted on the website but there is a very nice restaurant next door. A nice family owns and operates the motel but when... More
