This was a last minute decision, mainly because every place else was booked. The best decision we could have made. Absolutely wonderful; the epitome of Southern Charm. The staff was so attentive, and the rooms were great.

We love this place and every member of its staff as well. The location is great and convenient to shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities. The rooms are all unique and remind you of an old southern plantation. We will definitely be returning soon!

We chose the Hotel Magnolia on a whim for a last minute trip to Gulf Shores when the beach hotels were all full, and we were so delighted with the experience! The room was small (as is to be expected in an older hotel) but beautifully restored with a modern bathroom, and the service was friendly and attentive without being... More

50TH Birthday celebration weekend for my husband. it was a surprise. He had no clue of where we were staying. He totally enjoyed his birthday and the hotel staff was amazing. Everything about this B&B was wonderful. He even said we will be back. The area is safe and quiet. I highly recommend this B&B.

This was a different hotel than the ones in which we usually stay, and happily so. With kids at camp, we headed for the coast. One night in this beautiful hotel with so much history, coupled with some delightful walks around Foley, made this a visit we will definitely repeat. The basic room (Room 4) was lovely, but too small--we're... More

The Hotel Magnolia is a beautiful mansion. The place is very clean, staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast was good and filling. My only complaint is that we only booked two nights !! We will definitely book again !

A beautiful memory was created at The Hotel Magnolia! We were able to renew our wedding vows in the beautiful courtyard and Amanda was gracious enough to take pictures for us. Mary arranged for us to stay in the Bridal Suite that was magnificently decorated in a Victorian style. Such luxury!! The European style continental breakfast was delicious...complete with mimosas.... More

If you are like me, the name evokes images of the deep south and Southern charm - and that is exactly what the Hotel Magnolia delivers. Although it is smack-dab in the middle of town, the hotel itself just seems to slow down the pace of everything around it. It is a beautiful hotel inside and out with lower and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are not your average hotel. We are over 100 years old built in 1908. The hotel has been lovingly restored with antiques. We offer a wonderful European Continental breakfast included in our room rate. It is a great place to celebrate the special events in your life. Each room is individual and boasts chandeliers in our guest rooms and private bathrooms. . Our beautifully landscaped courtyard complete with fountain is surrounded by crepe myrtles and hydrangeas. After all a hotel should be more than just a place to lay your head. ... more   less
