Phoenix All Suites Hotel West
Ranked #4 of 25 Hotels in Gulf Shores
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 7, 2014

My wife and I had a long weekend getaway trip to Phoenix All suites. This was our first trip to Gulf Shores so we were anxious to see area.
Let's go through our impression of hotel
Rooms. They are all Suites with ocean view (good). They have a bedroom, two bunk beds in hall, a full kitchen and living area along with balcony. Our had 1.5 baths which is nice feature. Everything worked properly, was clean. We were a little concerned about noise because master bed is against hall where elevator was but even though you could hear noise in hall leading to door, we never heard anything outside in our bed. The kitchen was a nice feature though we did not cook there. View out balcony is fantastic as you overlook beach and gulf. Internet was free and easy to get (no codes etc). I had one time I could not get on but I called front desk and they asked for it to be reset and it worked later.
We were there clearly before peak and there was only I guest per floor it appeared but nice of them to spread out folks when they can.
Location was close enough to everything else especially considering beach access. Beach was very nice though waves were pretty high during our visit and it was a little cool (early in season).
This is a great location if you are pretty much self sufficient and don't need a lot of frills. If you are looking for high end personal service, this is not for you. Worked perfect for what we wanted and needed.

We spent two nights here for Spring Break and it was wonderful! The condos are perfect for our family of 4! They had every utensil, pot, pan, and appliance you could ever need. They even gave a little trial pack of dishwashing detergent to wash the dishes if you forgot to bring your own. The place was clean and the furniture was just perfect for that beach-feel you want when you stay on the coast. Every room has a great view of the gulf, so you can't go wrong. I would recommend this place to anyone because you're getting a condo for a hotel price!

We had a corner suite facing South and West, so the views and especially the sunsets were stupendous. The deck wasn't very large but it's acceptable. The rooms were very clean and well appointed and the beds were comfortable. There are souvenir stands within walking distance and a parasail booth is right next door. The only down side is the strange beach restrictions on erecting any kind of shade on their beaches. Any shade larger than 7x7 is not allowed. We put up a parachute and when inflated, it only covers about 12x15 and is for the four of us. There was no one within 100' of us, but the beach patrol told us it had to go. I suppose the rental concessions won't make enough money if everyone brings their own canopies.

My wife and I have been coming to this property for the last 6 years. Love the location, the staff is friendly and a wonderful view of the gulf. We feel it is time for a bit of fresh paint and some outside cleaning. The property is in no way run down, but looking a bit worn compared to how it looked when we first started staying. Housekeeping seemed understaffed as room was not cleaned until well into the afternoon. Still, a nice place to stay.

This was our second stay with Brett/Robinson at Gulf Shores. We stayed at Island Winds East on our last visit and were very happy. This time we decided to try out Phoenix All Suites Hotel West. We were very satisfied with this location as well. The unit itself was plenty big enough for my wife and I and could had handled a couple more people as well. The ocean view from our balcony was great as was the view of the lagoon from outside of our front door. It is conviently located right next to Bahama Bob's (the best resturant in town) and is only a short walk from The Hangout. Fantastic place!

We thought it would be convenient and the pictures looked okay but we were very disappointed. There was almost no water pressure in the shower, could not get the soap out of my hair. When I got a towel down to dry off a roach fell out of it into the shower. The bedroom was tiny with nowhere to put your belongings. The toilet was tiny (especially for my husband), there was nowhere to put your things around the sink. There was a smell in the bedroom (don't know if it was the carpet, linens, or drapes. Our allergies were terrible while staying there. One thing that I thought was dangerous was when you open the sliding door you had to step over about a 6 inch piece at the bottom (someone could easily get hurt on this). The pool was terrible, a very small lap pool that couldn't accomodate the guests. The elevators were almost impossible to catch (I heard several people commenting on this). I told them some of this when we checked out but they didn't seem to care. I think the entire place needs renovating.

We booked a last minute Labor Day getaway and were pleasantly surprised. Reasonable rate even tho a holiday. Very clean, comfy bed, nice view from 8th floor balcony, and wonderful food (Bahamas Bob's) right next door. The check-in was fast and check-out even faster. Will definitely stay again, but longer next time.
