So glad we discovered this gem of a hotel. We stayed on Level One with outside access to the our own patio and the beach. Great pool with pirate theme and six story waterfall. Hot tub is large enough to accomodate many people. Our room had three queen beds and full refrigerator. They are performing routine maintenance and repairs so...

I would highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast in the morning is great, although it is a restaurant off the other side of the lobby and it is not complementary. Within 2 miles of Gulf Shores State Park and many restaurants nearby. The rooms are nice with easy access to the street and beach from the front and back of...

This hotel was AMAZING! Heather was so helpful! I came with a group of 20+ and it was the most smooth process we have ever had. We got an incredible ocean view and the rooms were very nice! So comfortable and homey. Absolutely will come back again!

Ms. Heather was a very nice woman who gave us EXCELLENT customer service. The bathrooms are in really great condition. Having a kitchenette is a plus, as well. Being on the beach is a fantastic location. This hotel is A1.

Heather, did a fantastic job taking care of our group. She treated our group with great respect and made our stay 10x better. Our room was facing on the beach side and it was a wonderful view. The hotel is very clean and well taken care of, I recommend this for anyone!

The hotel is a little dated, but the beds were good. I was happy with the overall cleanliness of the hotel. The room was a little small but did have a full size refrigerator and appliances. I did not try the restaurant in the hotel because the reviews were not good. Everything else was very satisfactory.

The staff was helpful and courteous. The room was extremely clean and updated. The bed was amazing! We weren't bothered at all during our stay. Walk about 20 steps and you can see the gulf. We will definitely stay here every time we drive down!!

This stay wasn't the best. We have never had these problems at any other Best Western property. We found dirty underwear in our bathroom and asked to speak to a manager. We never heard from the manager.

We always stay at this hotel when we go to Gulf Shores. The staff is friendly and it's right on the beach. The only problem we encountered was the TV not showing a MENU on the screen. That made it hard to navigate through the channels.
