Nice quiet resort located right across the street from the beach. We had easy access to the beach at almost any time of the day. The resort is older, but pretty well kept. It is being renovated bit by bit. The staff was very nice and very friendly.

This place reminds me of a place from a old beach movie. I loved it. The beach is across the street. The room we had was a deluxe and had a very roomie feeling. It may look outdated but in no way affected our stay or feelings at all. The managers were great. We did go buy a scrubber for...

Location was perfect for our last minute trip to Gulf Shores. We literally had to cross the street for beach access. We could walk miles in either direction on the sand. We also walked to the local stores and restaurants. The pool is big and clean with tables and plenty of lounge chairs. Several of the chairs needed repair but...

Hi Patricia B, Thank you for your kind words! Our location is great! I love your description, "big bang for your buck!" We are striving to be a good value as dollars need to stretch these days.

Great location. Very dated furnishings but most appliances worked well. Microwave barely worked as it was very old. Everyone was nice. May have rushed and only spot mopped and vacuumed. Could have used some more cleaning. Refrigerator and range worked. We cooked some. Didn't use hot tub

This is a very nice place to stay you could not ask for a better staff they are great. We loved that it was right across from the beach and had a nice pool to just relax in after a day at the beach. I would definatley recommend this resort. We will definatley stay there again.

Very great location with the beach access across the street. Room was very clean and neat. One bedroom with double beds and walk in closet. Great view from the porch of the pool. Pool was clean and lots of chairs - just no umbrellas - bring your own. Great location on the Boulevard. Highly recommend!

We read many reviews and were skeptical however we booked anyway. Glad we did, the place was just right for us. We had a "regular 1 BR with 1 Bath" which was just fine for us however we did see 4 adults in a similar Reg 1 BR next to us and could not fathom how or why they would...

Hi AirForceTraveler, We have 3 room sizes- the regular 1 bedroom is our smallest but it is also the most economical as we also rent units. I understand how you feel about smoking as I am Allergic to cigarette smoke. Smoking is allowed in our common areas only which does include the pool. Our property is a "mixed use" property...

It was a cute place, but I feel like I was taken advantage of with the cleaning deposit. They kept my $100 deposit due to an innocent mistake with a colored washcloth mixed in with the linens. I know it didn't cost $100 to bleach the stains out. I'm dismayed that I'm not getting my money back and I won't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are across the road from the public access to the beach. Great location. Our buildings are on pilings so there are a few steps to climb. We offer a towel exchange on Wednesday and also have a coin op laundry room. We are not a high-rise or a huge complex, more of a quaint "old Florida" kind of place! Great place for families as we have full kitchens in case you want to save some money and eat in. Our pool is huge and in the middle of the complex with our hot tub. Bahama Bob's is across the street and we are within walking distance to The Hangout and other businesses. Paradise Isle received the RCI Hospitality award for 2014,2015,2016,2017. We are under new management as of 02/2014. ... more   less
