Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Gulf Shores
Ranked #10 of 25 Hotels in Gulf Shores
Reviewed July 20, 2012

We enjoyed our stay.. However, there was no microwave and refrigerator in the room as advertised. There was a microwave in a general area for use though. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a laundry room for us to wash out wet beach clothes- very convenient and nice staff.

We stayed in the back building. We were upgraded to a room with a fridge and microwave (which you have to request when booking the rooms.) The elevator service record posted in the elevator was from 2011 (not comforting), wireless internet did not work the majority of the time, breakfast was cereal, muffins and juice and there was absolutely no place to sit and eat besides two little tables and a sofa with a coffee table, vending machines were a little pricey, pool was kinda dirty but mainly sand in the bottom because when people come back from the beach and get in the pool sand comes off. The walls are very, very thin. We could hear people in the rooms next to us shutting the closet doors and drawers and we could hear just about every sound that was made in the hallway. The water pressure wasn't great and the faucet in our room leaked anytime the people next to us would use the shower. The shower also took about 30 minutes to drain completely. Maid service was okay. We would come in from the beach around 2 or 3 to shower to go out to dinner and room service still hadn't made it around to bring us clean towels. Not too far from the beach just a little bit of traffic. Not a horrible place to stay if you are on a budget and booking at the last minute like we were but would definitely like to stay somewhere else next time.

Hotel has new carpet in rooms. Strange dark mirrors behind beds. No elevators. I have a pacemaker and I had to climb stairs. Service man was nice and installed new hair dryer promptly. No refrigerator in rooms. Coke machine only .75 cents. Pleasant stay!

We only stayed for two nights, so the small rooms did not brother us. We even had to spend a few hours in the room because if rain. Luckily, good movies were on showing on tv. The walls are a little thin, but mainly heard the slamming of doors, and little ones crying. The beach is less than 10 minutes away, so that was great. Do beaware that public beach parking is $5. Great stay, the breakfast is limited, but for the price I was very pleased. A good choice if you only stay a few days. I would want some more room if I planned for a longer trip.

OMG this place was awful. Micro it is. The rooms were very small, no fridg or microwave in room. Cont breakfast was warm milk, cereal, muffins, bad juice. Elevator stuck several times a day. Hallways hot, carpet dirty, rooms not clean, bathrooms nasty. You have to request your beds be changed and clean towels. Not to mention the pool that always had a foggy film in it. Yucky! And one last thing; the card keys work SOMETIMES to your room. My advise pay the additional $ and stay some where that is not as conservate!

Room Tip: Pay $ and go to a real hotel!

Here from Wednesday thru Sunday for USSSA Baseball event. Have always enjoyed my stay at other Microtels. This one is terrible. Dirty Pool, intermentent internet service, lousy breakfast, dirty room; Maid didn't even make one of the beds one day. Asked for extended checkout time on Sunday and they want to charge $15. Price for a Microtel is outrageous, Three weeks ago I stayed in Bremen, Ga for $29/night. Here it was $127.99/night. Bremen has hot breakfast, Gulf Shores, cold cereal and muffins. I'll never stay her again and wouldn't receoomend this hotel to any of my friends traveling to Gulf Shores.

Oh yes, access to the main road is a hassle with major traffic and no traffic light.

Room Tip: Another hotel

Good location away from crowds...just minutes from beach...only complaint, complimentary breakfast consists of cereal, toast, Little Debbies and very small area to eat in, guess thats why its called "Micro"tel...Overall, great place, no problems.
