I had a blast, room was amazing, the staff was great. My VIEW was out of this world. I can't give this place enough stars or whatever....A must visit....The owner went out of his way to give me a free breakfast cause my phone in the room didn't work. I refused it as that was not why i was there....

Excellent housekeeping staff and front desk staff. Walk out of hotel and you're on the beach. Walk along the beach, collect some beautiful and unusual shells. Just enjoy being there. This was our 51st wedding anniversary and our 4 children and their families gave us a money tree to be used anywhere. Never been to Gulf Shores but will definitely...

We reserved a room for them for 3 nights in a Best Western motel near our condo. We spoke with management days in advance who...

This hotel is located on a fabulous beach. It is currently undergoing repairs that detract from the appearance and create a fair amount of noise. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. The east building has the best views.

This hotel is dated and could use some updating and basic maintenance, but it is right on the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants and bars. The door to our room stuck and was hard to open and close, so that is a maintenance issue that needs to be addressed. The room furnishings are old and out of...

We stayed for a month. We arrived Dec 30 and left Jan 31. We stayed in the older part of the hotel on the first floor then they had us move to the second floor since they were installing new carpet. We had the street view side which was fine. The staff was great. The housekeepkng dept did everything to...

lady at check in was great. She was welcoming and a pleasure. The parking lot is close and easy to access. The elevator is slow, but adequate. We had a beach room and it was adequate but lacking in other ways. Maybe the place is just a little old. My wife is gluten sensitive, and I was disappointed when we...

The owner was on site and obviously works hard to make sure the place is clean and in good order. Every person we encountered on staff was helpful and friendly. Great view of the beach and super convenient to the marathon start. Great experience.

There was hair left int he room from previous renters, overall it was about average but I thought for the price we paid, should have been a little more upscale. These are the things you don't know when booking online!
