This is a really nice property! Right on the unbelievably white sands of Gulf Shores, AL. Very reasonably priced, large clean rooms, comfortable beds, cute little balcony. We liked it so much we came back for a second night. It has an attached restaurant looking out over the Gulf that had a wonderful selection of breakfast items. We were moving...

This was a great hotel. It's an older hotel but it's been updated and our room had a kitchenette. It was close to the beach. It was very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. For $81 I thought it was awesome.
