Great location on the beach!!! The weekends are a bit pricey, so be ready to pay it or just don't plan to be there on the weekend. To the best of my knowledge, there was no free continental breakfast. So make preparations for breakfast because the restaurant breakfast is a bit pricey. It was good eating though.

Great location right on the beach. The view is fantastic and conveniently located by top rated restaurants and night life. The price is avg, you pay for what you get. Front desk was extremely helpful and friendly!

The best thing about this hotel is the location. We were right on the beach. With a handicapped member in our group, it was wonderful to play on the beach and have them be part of the fun. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. The restaurant did a good breakfast. The price was a little expensive but I would book here again.

Room Tip: I probably wouldn't stay here if there were no ocean view rooms available.

I thought it was a very nice location, being right on the beach. The rooms are basic hotel rooms with double queen or single king bed. Had a decent restaurant inside as well as indoor and out door pools and hot tubs. Also had outside / inside bar. I enjoyed the stay and for the beach the price was below average compared to condo but above average for hotel. Wouldn't recommend personally for extended stay due to I personally prefer condo but for short stay or if your traveling alone I would say its a great place to go.

The rooms are very expensive, we arrived late and booked a room after 10:00 p.m. We still had to pay full price for the room. The price for the room was over $300 per night. Make sure if you do go to bring chairs and an umbrella or pay $25 to rent one. If its your first time to Gulf shores be sure to drink a Bushwacker very tasty.

Thank you for your feedback! Our summertime prices are competitive with all of the other hotels/condos on the beach as well, we know however that the price will get you a beautiful room on the ocean and an unforgettable vacation experience that is priceless. There is a separate beach service that will gladly supply beach chairs and umbrellas for our guests for either $5 and hour or $25 for the whole day. This same umbrella service is what every hotel and condo in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach use. I thank you again for your patronage and we hope to have you again soon!
