We spent three nights at the Gulf Shores Best Wedtern on the Beach. The pillow top beds were fantastic as were the pillows because there were both 2 soft and 2 firm pillows on each bed. The toiletries were also good quality, Bath & Body Works. The hotel itself is modest looking but you can't beat the location. The beach...

Had a great time. Clean, comfortable, great service and friendly people. The view was excellent and the cafe in the hotel was a great place to eat and convenient. When in gulf shores you could not ask for a better place to stray.

We enjoyed our stay here to visit with friends in the area. All staff was friendly and helpful. Only downside we could see was that it seemed a bit pricey both for the accommodations and their on site restaurant but guessing they are probably in line with other hotels for Gulf Shores.

Hotel staff was wonderful- especially Michelle! She went above and...

We we greeted cordially, but we had to wait an hour for our room. The desk clerk gave use some ice for our drinks and we headed out to the pool area to sunbath. We were right off the water so I walked down the beach? The room was nice, a little smaller than usual and on the 2nd level...

Awesome, Clean, and on the Beach. The manager was polite and very accommodating. (extra parking across the street for big trucks and trailers). The pool was nice and clean. The cleanest and best Hotel on the beach in Gulf Shores!!! The next time we go to Gulf Shores we will be definitely going back to the Best Western. Hands down.

I stayed in one of the cottages across from the beach and I highly recommend staying there. It is a home away from home. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and overall the cottage has a homey feel. You also get access to the hotel pool and hot tub which is very convenient. I...
