    Good value, on the beach, could use an update”

    We were looking for a place in Gulf Shores that was "on the beach" and wasn't over-priced. This was one option and the price seemed reasonable. We arrived after a tropical storm passed through and had trouble figuring out how to get into the lobby since the front doors were blocked. Eventually, another guest told me how to get in. Once checked in, the room was fine but could use an update - the bathrooms in particular. Our bathroom didn't even have a toiler paper holder! Otherwise, the rooms were adequate. I tried to use their in-room internet and found it to be virtually unusable - slow, problems displaying websites and Facebook.

    Wonderful getaway! ”

    My family and I decided to take a quick trip to the beach after quarantine. We really don't like having to leave our hotel by car to drive to the beach, and, this being super last minute, we ended up here. I'll admit, the price per night threw me at first! Y'all! The location alone is worth every penny. Step off the elevator and step onto the beach. The rooms are a little older, but it was very clean. The staff are all amazing and the restaurant has Cinnamon Roll Pancakes that will blow your mind! The only negative is the little tiny coffee pot that uses the little pods. We are big coffee drinkers so this was hard, but a quick trip to the lobby (any time of day!) and we had fresh cups in hand. The indoor pool is closed currently bc of COVID restrictions, but who wants to be indoors anyway? If you're looking for a getaway spot filled with positive experiences, this is the place for you!

    A great location for a beach get away. A friend and I had only two days to escape to the beach. Check in was easy and early. Room was crispy clean and ocean view was fabulous. Rented beach chairs and stayed till dusk before leaving paradise. I’ll do it again soon.

    This place was awesome. Walking distance to everything. Beautiful view, beautiful room, two pools-indoor and outside. Staff was above and beyond. Thank you to Heather for making my kids first beach visit (since they were 2!) so memorable! They loved everything about it. (Well, except for the jellyfish, but actually added a whole different set of experiences, pictures and memories!)

    PROS:The location was perfect, the staff was really friendly, the hotel was nice but there were a couple of things to bgve worked on. CONS:We had spider webbs & termites around the outside of our room door, our bathroom door was a little loose on the bottom hinge & the paneling on front of our bathroom sink was coming off. Other than that, great place to stay & the pancake house was really good.

    Beach weekend ”

    The location is the only thing this place has going for it. Very disappointed with Best Western. I am a best western member and like to stay with them. This place is old and outdated. The pools and spa need updating. The room was old and outdated. We could hear everything our drunk neighbors were doing through the thin walls and out in the hall ways. After a long day at the beach all you want to do is come back get cleaned up and relax. The Tv did not work right and the room was not a very comfortable place to be.

    The only thing that would make this hotel better would be if it had a pool side bar. Packing a cooler or going to the hut a few hotels down was ok, but on-site tiki bar would be awesome.

    Rm 222 oceanside king reserved over christmas holidays visiting family. The building remodel appears to have been well done. Facility and room met our expectations. Only issues were lack of furniture in the room (could have used a recliner) and few mold spots on ceiling in bathroom. Breakfast at the on-site restaurant was satisfying although on the pricey side. Be sure to confirm your reservation at the front desk if you book with an outside vendor such as travelocity.

    So disappointed!”

    We found this hotel online; the pictures made it appear clean and spacious. It was the exact opposite. The room we had with a kitchenette was so cramped, the bathroom was tiny, the internet was weak, the kitchenette was minimally stocked with ratty old pans, a couple of plates, and very few utensils. Room service only came through twice in 4 nights and made a very minimal sweep of the room. The pool was a total joke. The entire property: pool, rooms, elavator, and halls were dirty.
