This quaint little place is tucked in behind a Shrimp Basket restaurant. The room was clean and affordable and best of all a straight shot down the road to the Gulf Shores Beach. Convenient to restaurants and shopping. They had a nice outdoor pool. We will stay there again.

We stayed at the Riviera Inn for the 2nd year due to the affordable rates and no issues the prior year. This time around that was not the case. Initially checking in, the only issue we had was the availability of the rooms. We preferred a room with 2 beds on the bottom floor, but were told that the hotel... More

It was terrible. Place was nasty and very loud. Checked out the next day and went and checked into the Marriott Grand in Point Clear, Alabama. The Grand was fabulous!!! I would not recommend for anyone to stay at the Riviera Inn in Foley, Alabama. You would be better off at a Motel 8 or sleeping in your vehicle.

As a middle class family of 3, we look for good value, location and cleanliness in lodging when we travel, we received all three at the Riviera Inn. We were there the Memorial weekend and even though the Riviera was full we had a quiet stay there. Staff was pleasant and courteous despite being busy as they checked in customers.... More

Riviera Inn is situated off of the main highway in Foley, near many restaurants and shopping. It's not fancy, but is a basic hotel that is approx. 10 minutes from the public beach. It's good for convenient place to stay. The rooms were basic and clean. The bathroom had a touch of mold that needed to be cleaned. I thought... More
