Although this hotel is not located on the beach, it is consistent with the Holiday Inn Express chain. The rooms are very comfortable, and the service is usually good.

Our stay at Holiday Inn Express Gulf Shore was very pleasent. The staff was friendly and I even won a prize for using their web site. We arrived just in time for a Mardi Gras parade and the staff made sure we got a room where we could see the street !

This was a great hotel to stay at with my 2 teens. We stayed 3 nights, enjoyed the breakfast in the mornings and it's about 1 mile from the beach so it was a quick drive. We also visited the go kart track and played mini-golf accross the street. It just so close to everything! I highly recommend it to family's.

How sweet, Sarah! Thank you so much for the recommendation! We are the best location for families who want to be close to all the main attractions in the area and we are glad you and your family were able to enjoy the surroundings!

There's always something new popping up right around the corner so be sure to bring your family back again next year! Again, we can't thank you enough for your feedback.

We selected this hotel based on price and on proximity to a planned family event. It is located ½ a block from Gulf Shores Parkway and less than a mile from the beach. The hotel is in excellent condition overall and has ample parking. The desk staff were professional and very helpful with directions and recommendations. Our room was large and included a king size bed. A simple but adequate breakfast was included with the room rate and included coffee, juice, milk, fruit, eggs, sausage, pancakes and more. There is an indoor pool on site but we did not use nor see it. If I had to take away any points for this hotel is that the carpeting on our floor (4th) was dirty and the mattress on our bed was very stiff. Other than that, a very nice place to stay.

Was a great place to stay - loved the way the room was set up - wouldn't hestitate to stay again if we returned to this area. There was also a great little neighborhood bar located right behind the Hotel - "After Hours"- could walk to it - everyone at the bar treated us like locals and helped us find some great restaurants to eat during our stay- Tracy was great she worked behind the bar and was very pleasent to talk to.

Room Tip: Are room was on the 3rd floor and towards the front of the building and everything was quit - I believe it was due to how the room is set up - which was great!
