Taking my four-legged companion along presents extra challenges. LQ is usually the answer, and this one was just the right "everything" for me and my Lab mix, Mr. Black. I agree wholeheartedly with the other positive reviews and want to add that the area seemed very safe. Mr. Black and I went for outside puppy walks at all different times, and always had a pleasant time of it. The full moon through the tall pines, with the late summer breeze, was awesome. I did try out the pool/spa area and enjoyed that a lot. There was a large flat-screen tv at the foot of the (as reviewer kel G mentioned) tempurpedic bed, and I enjoyed both of those amenities. Also I appreciated the microwave, fridge, and coffee maker being in the room, along with the free hot breakfast every morning from 6-9 a.m. The microwave and fridge were enclosed in a hutch/chest of drawers which gave an upscale appearance to the room, along with the framed prints on the wall which I found myself actually enjoying. When it seemed that the fridge wasn't getting as cold as I needed, I remembered a cruise where the room steward informed me that the door on the hutch in front of that fridge kept it from being able to get rid of the heat from the coils, and advised me to leave the hutch door open. It finally did cool off enough without my opening that hutch door, but I am just passing along that FYI. I had asked for a King Suite room, low floor, when I booked online. Upon check-in, the desk attendant, Jamie, noted my request and said that to get both of those, she would need to put me in an ADA room. That was just fine with me, so the ADA room put me just steps away from the side door when it was puppy walk time. Other than the closet rod being lower, and the toilet being just a little higher, I couldn't tell much difference from a regular room. I would mention there was also an ironing board and iron. The king bed had five pillows on it, with an extra pillow in the closet! A nice touch. I had booked for two nights, but ended up adding an extra night to our stay and spent the Sunday making a day trip down to Gulf Shores, AL, just to make sure the ocean was still there! It was, although a surprise storm that caused the cruise ships problems was certainly kicking up some angry waves and wind there. We took the Alabama Scenic Highway to Gulf Shores (which goes through a bird sanctuary near Fairhope, AL, and winds past Point Clear -- I would recommend that drive for anyone who has the time for it.) I stopped at a Dollar General store along the way to pick up some Roll Tide (U of AL) items for a great price. (They had Auburn, too!) There is a McDonald's adjacent to this LQ and when I bought my breakfast/drink Sunday morning, I was an "instant winner" of their current promotion and used that coupon for my free lunch in Gulf Shores! Then it was back to the Daphne LQ (via the regular route to save time) for the last night before heading back home to Atlanta. For anyone driving I-65 between South Alabama and Montgomery, I would very much recommend a stop at Exit 130 for the Bates House of Turkey Restaurant. As well as being a restaurant with really delicious, home-style food, they sell whole smoked turkey and other turkey items (turkey chili, turkey gumbo, turkey jerky) to go and everything I tried was really good. After eating my turkey sandwich (the reason I stopped initially), I went back to the counter and purchased a turkey dinner to microwave once I got to the LQ (so comforting after a long drive) and a sliced smoked turkey breast to take to the family gathering. On the way back, I got a smoked turkey to take back home. Very nice trip overall for Mr. Black and me, other than the reason for it (Loss in the family).
