Great stay! Family oriented place. We checked so many prices and this place was one of the cheapest. My wife and I chose price over comfort and had no idea how awesome and comfortable it would really be. A girl named Woshane (sweet little Jamaican girl) was so good to us! Her attitude alone sways my decision to return. Love... More

I brought my parents, hubby and toddler on a weekend to Gulfshores. And we were looking for a place to stay. It was off-peak already so the stay was around $80/night. We were initially assigned to a room on the upper right side of the building (facing the bldg). I checked the view and it was limited because of the... More

The hotel stay was good, room was clean and had friendly Desk Staff. The weather could have been a little better but we made the best of it. The Restaurant Breakfast food was horrible, over cooked bacon and sausage (like eating jerky) and the Service was very poor.. I will not eat there again.

We always stay at the Best Western on the Beach when we go to Gulf Shores. The rooms are huge and very clean. The pool is sparkling and you are right on the beach! Spend a few more dollars and get an ocean view room. It is worth it! There is a restaurant downstairs, but we preferred to eat around... More

This motel is older however it does have a few things going for it. The overall motel is clean. It is located right in the beach and our room had a full size fridge sink and small oven. DO NOT eat at the pancake house which is in the motel. It is awful. There is no breakfast included.

Exceeded expectations!!! Clean room, friendly staff and great rate :) Very convenient to Hwy 59. From the moment we checked in, we were pleasantly surprised with the expeditious check-in, the friendliness of all the staff, the cleanliness of the room and the room was well stocked with plenty of towels. The Island Pancake Restaurant on the premise was a pleasant... More

When we visit the Gulf with our children we prefer to stay in a condo. Not only do we have the privacy of separate bedrooms but we also enjoy the use of a kitchen, and usually washer and dryer. On a very last minute weekend getaway during a busy holiday weekend we decided we'd stay at the Best Western. It's... More

With all the expensive condo's at gulf shores the is a really great hotel to stay at. The staff is very friendly and the beds are very comfortable and the room was updated and modern. There are rooms that have balconies that view the gulf waters right on the beach. We will definitely be back.

booked a room for one night based on the rating. I wondered where have these people stayed before. everything is dated, and just feels dirty. I just kept telling myself, only 1 night and its a best western.

Great place to stay. Nice rooms. We bookek two rooms for two nights and it was very relaxing. The rooms were nice size and we got a kitchenette in both rooms. The balcony overlooked the beach. The only complaints would be the hot tub wasn't hot and when we tried to sit on the balcony all we got was the... More
