Great hotel with large rooms. There really isn’t an office, you check in at the bar area that is the center of the hotel. They don’t offer early check in. There is not a restaurant, but plenty of options within a few blocks that you can walk too. The bar was a great place to hang out with friends and it does close about 9PM, so it is quiet for guests. We would stay here gain without hesitation.
We stayed here with a group and loved it. Large rooms with lots of unique décor. The rooms are oversized and there is bar in the middle of the hotel with good services and a comfortable area to visit. The bar closed at 8:30, because they want to keep things quiet for the guests. If we ever make it back to Florence, this is where we will stay.
The Gunrunner Boutique Hotel is a hidden gem in the south. This is my fourth visit and I have to say it’s an outstanding hotel. Very comfortable and clean rooms each with its own unique atmosphere. The lobby bar is a great place to relax and enjoy about every spirit you’d want. Highly recommend when you’re in Northern Alabama
The Gun Runner is a good idea unless they have a band and the music is so loud you can’t hear yourself think while in your room. On those nights, like we’ve just had, it’s a really bad idea. My real suggestion is that they let potential guests know about their schedule before they book.
Cannot say enough about how pleasant this place was during our brief stay. Beautifully designed, comfortable and it's also a really nice bar. Staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome. The mattress was on the soft side for me, but I found everything else to be of standard to expected from hotels in a much higher price range.
Great little hotel in a convenient location in Florence. Very, very clean! The room smelled fresh and appeared very well maintained. Nice touches throughout. Wifi was fast and TVs offer Roku streaming. Just know that there's no elevator and you'll need to carry bags up the stairs. But you are bound to enjoy for stay at the Gunrunner.
They seem to pride themselves on a "no contact" model which translates to nobody onsite to assist an incoming "guest". I arrived two hours early and attempted to reach someone - anyone- about a) checking in early and b) unavailability of parking. The property has a very very small parking lot which was completely full. Street parking was not available. When one calls this property's phone number (which they clearly discourage), one winds through and IVR to press the option to speak to a person. Well, of course, no person was available, so I was then "invited" to leave a voice mail, which I did. My voice mail requested info on checkin and parking. And here's the thing - not only did they not respond in a timely manner - THEY NEVER RESPONDED AT ALL. No one returned my call - ever - no one texted - nothing. So if you want anything resembling service at what I think is still referred to as the "hospitality industry", I urge you to book elsewhere. This is really too-cute-by-half.…
This is now one of my favorite places in the entire country. I travel a lot with my business. I’m always looking for as I’ve stayed in your run of the mill places all my career. This place is an escape from the ordinary by far. Each suite has its own personality. I will stay here many more times. The service is excellent. Olivia went so far out of her way that I would’ve thought she owned this lovely boutique hotel. She had a instrumental role in this review. The guy on the guitar was awesome too! See you again soon GunRunner!
Everything about this hotel was so lovely. My husband and I came in for a short getaway and it was perfect. The ambiance is very romantic and rustic. We had a great time talking to the bartender and just lounging in the main room. There is also a spa and coffee shop downstairs that are both very nice and offer great services. If you are looking for a fun place for couples in the Muscle Shoals area, this is it.
We love staying at this awesome, quaint hotel. All the rooms are located around a very cool, well stocked bar!!! The bartender is the best!!! The room are themed and ours was music oriented towards the Muscle Shoals sound which was so cool. All the area is walkable from the hotel and our room had a terrific balcony. We just love it here!!! Very fancy bathroom with separate shower and claw footed tub!!! We will be back!!!!
