Overall not a good experience. I am a little surprised at the good reviews. It wasn't terrible but I will not stay there again without some serious improvements. First of all the stool in our room rocked when you sat on it. We didn't realize how bad the mattress was until we were ready for bed. It had sunken spots... More

So instead of paying the big bucks for a hotel on the beach at Gulf Shores, we booked a room here. Heads up people, I have NEVER stayed at a good Econo Lodge in my life, and this kept my track record. Holes in the towels that also smelled bad, no extra toilet paper when we walked in, soap stain...

Two words: full breakfast. Biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage, waffle maker - all on top of the continental delights. The room was huge, clean, and had a retro vibe. Bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly and was able to accommodate me when I asked for a 1st floor room. The place had a fun vacation vibe about it... the palm... More

Staff was very nice & accommodating but I expected more out of this stay than we got. Check in was very late in the afternoon so we had to change plans until then. First off, we had a very nice view of the dumpsters & an old tin roof building. Gnats literally everywhere but I guess that's just because we're... More

my room was excellent. Nice and clean and cool. Nice pool. The staff was extra friendly they had no problems giving us extra towels. I loved the free hot breakfast which had biscuits and gravy, sausage patties and links, bacon, ham, eggs, toast, bagels, cereal, Danish, coffee, apple and orange juice oh and waffles. A little bit of everything for... More

This is the very first time I have hated to write a bad review, but hopefully it will do some good for the hotel's manager, who is amazing. Problem # 1 - Upon check in, the lady was not friendly, at all. She was on the phone (I assume setting up or cancelling a reservation), she did not greet me... More

During our busy time of year we are constantly on the move with pressure washing and keeping the outside of our building clean as the mass amount of guest coming in and out take a toll on our property.
