We weren't expecting much since this is a budget motel but there were a few things that were unacceptable cheap or not. This is the only time either my wife or I have ever stayed in a motel where housekeeping didn't even enter the room after our 1st night. We didn't want new linens but we did expect the bed to be made, the two towels on the floor to be replaced, the garbage to be emptied and the disposable cups to be replaced. There were two lights one of which didn't even have a bulb in it. The alarm clock would make random strange noises until we finally unplugged it. My wife had to get off the toilet to be able to reach the toilet paper where the holder was installed, I could barely reach it by stretching. The wifi was pathetic and dropped the connection constantly.

Dear Ken S,

I would like to thank you for your review.Our hotel's policy is to offer housekeeping service to each guest on a daily basis. The fact that your room was overlooked is something that will be forwarded to our housekeeping supervisor and in turn to the entire housekeeping team. Please accepy my apology . We will work on training the housekeepers to notice things like missing light bulbs and faulty equipment such as radios and televisions. In both of these cases a call to the front desk would have resulted in replacing a bulb or moving you to a room that suited your needs better. Our goal is to make our guests happy and to provice quality service at a reasonable price. Your feedback is very valuable to us.

Sincerely,

Samantha

We stayed here for three nights on our honeymoon while spending time in Gulf Shores. The price was very affordable and we paid in 3 nights less than what one night in Nashville cost. The downsides were no elevator in the front building and no fridge or microwave. We were keeping our things in a cooler but they don't allow you to use the ice machine to fill your cooler up. If you can find a stand alone ice vendor it is only $1.50 for jumbo bag. Hotel was clean and front desk were nice. Just had a basic breakfast but for the price it works. We will be staying here every time we come to Gulf Shores!

I am an art vendor, and participated in the Shrimp Festival.....I stayed at this motel for 6 nights. Check-in was a breeze, and the staff was very friendly. Checkout was just as easy. I DID notice that if there was a clerk at the desk in the mornings when we left, or evenings when we returned, they didn't speak. No biggee....but we did notice it. The one thing that put a damper on our stay was TOTALLY my fault.....I was looking at the price of the rooms vs the amenities.....staying 6 nights, we needed to be as frugal as possible......a clean bed and bathroom are all we really required, but I booked a room without a microwave and fridge. Again, totally MY fault. Very difficult to keep things cold in a small cooler, but we made it work. One thing we DID notice was the EXTREMELY thin walls......you can tell what the rooms on either side of you are watching on TV. The rooms are small, but were completely adequate for us, as we just needed a place to "crash" each night after working at the festival. The price was MUCH cheaper than any others in the area.....even those that "hosted" the festival. The check out clerk told me that the owner is thinking about making a block of rooms available next year for a special price for vendors at the festival....this would be VERY helpful, and probably would bring more business for the vendor world if the price is competitive. If you are looking for a 5 star place close to the Gulf, this is not it.....but it's a straight shot to the water. If you're looking for a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom, you will be pleased with this....will definitely stay there again next year when I participate in the festival....
