Lovely hotel full of antiques and character. Vinyl records playing in the lobby on an old time record player. Sweet desk clerk so helpful and fun to talk to. perfect location. Would have stayed longer if we had the time.

3 friends and I are on a girls trip and made a last minute decision to stay at Malaga Inn. The first room we checked into was dirty. The owner happened to be in the hotel and came to our room and said the room was unacceptable. He graciously offered us a suite at the same price as our room.... More

Dumasgirl, I am so sorry your stay with us was not satisfactory. We consider a 3 star review to be the same as a one star review. I did hope you would enjoy the upgrade but if the air conditioning was not cooling enough then that is completely our fault and is something we will look into immediately. We will... More

If you are interested in the very old and the antiques this is the place for you. The four post bed was so high I had to help my wife get on the bed. The breakfast was very good, what a surprise for hotel breakfasts. The area is also interesting because of the age of the area.

This is not a purpose built box hotel, but an adaptation of existing buildings. It has quirks but is cute and clean and has character. The front desk is welcoming, helpful and friendly. There are fruit infused ice water and jelly bellys out to munch on and bicycles to rent. Walk or a short drive to all sights. Was very... More

My 8 year old granddaughter and I took a short trip to Mobile and stayed at the Malaga Inn! It is an old historical site. Our room was comfortable with two full beds, updated bathroom with antique furnishings, wooden floors and an antique looking telephone in the room (the first antique telephone my granddaughter has seen). The room was on... More

The only downside to this lovely place is that it's old, so the bathrooms are a little small, but it's in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's very traditional to the area - a little like New Orleans, but quiet and quaint. I can't wait to go back!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We feel that the age of the building is what sets us apart from some of the other corporate chain hotels. Some bathrooms are larger than others so if you return, please request a room with a larger bathroom and we will be happy to accommodate you based... More

My husband and I stayed at the Malaga recently, and I loved it. I am a fan of quaint, historic hotels so this fit the bill. Our room was very pretty and the staff were friendly and helpful. If you are looking for modern - this is not your place. If you like places with history and charm, you will... More

This beautifully restored inn is a must if you love history and attention to detail. The ceramic mugs for coffee, tall glasses for water or drinks, and the smell of freshly laundered cotton bed linens, make your stay unforgettable! Also, high end toiletries in the bathroom. Next time you have the chance- pick the Malaga Inn in Mobile - you... More

I have known about the Malaga Inn through historical context for many years, but I was not prepared for such an amazing stay. The hotel is beautiful, and the staff may be the friendliest and most helpful I have ever encountered. I was immediately struck with awesomeness when after checking in, the desk clerk handed me an honest-to-God key, I... More

I stayed here one night (weekday) for business travel and I definitely want to go back with the family. The place is beautiful, very clean, great breakfast options, free parking, and amazing service. The courtyard is beautiful and at night the lights makes it very cozy. I loved the fountain!
