This is an older facility but the staff keeps it in good shape. It is clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The price is right. Enjoyed the balcony overlooking the Gulf. Would stay again.

Excellent location; very comfortable bed; very friendly and helpful staff, especially the maid service; the restaurant had probably the best breakfasts in the area ; all in all a very good value for such a resort area providing a most enjoyable experience.

We booked our trip with hotels.com and received a Presidents' Day rate which saved $100 off our stay. Room price was my only negative. $300 a night. When we arrived, the hotel staff was so friendly. They were remodeling and we stayed in a remodeled room and it was immaculate. Bed was immaculate. Having a clean room and bed to...

I had a blast, room was amazing, the staff was great. My VIEW was out of this world. I can't give this place enough stars or whatever....A must visit....The owner went out of his way to give me a free breakfast cause my phone in the room didn't work. I refused it as that was not why i was there....

Excellent housekeeping staff and front desk staff. Walk out of hotel and you're on the beach. Walk along the beach, collect some beautiful and unusual shells. Just enjoy being there. This was our 51st wedding anniversary and our 4 children and their families gave us a money tree to be used anywhere. Never been to Gulf Shores but will definitely...

This hotel is located on a fabulous beach. It is currently undergoing repairs that detract from the appearance and create a fair amount of noise. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. The east building has the best views.

This hotel is dated and could use some updating and basic maintenance, but it is right on the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants and bars. The door to our room stuck and was hard to open and close, so that is a maintenance issue that needs to be addressed. The room furnishings are old and out of...
