On a recent business trip I had the pleasure of staying at The Hotel Magnolia. I travel quite a bit throughout the state and had never stayed in this wonderful hotel before...the staff was super friendly and very accommodating. I happened to be the only person staying that night and had to leave fairly early the next morning. The manager...

Have travelled by the hotel / BnB for years and finally had an opportunity to stay there. Needed a place between the beach and Daphne, AL. This older hotel has such cool furniture and decorations. We stayed in Room 2 and it is a Queen and a bit small but perfect for wife and I and one night. The chandeliers...

The staff was very nice. The rooms were pretty. Wonderful porches that wrap around the building. A very relaxing stay. Breakfast was nice with a variety of continental breakfast style food. The hotel is in a great location. I will be back.

This was a last minute decision, mainly because every place else was booked. The best decision we could have made. Absolutely wonderful; the epitome of Southern Charm. The staff was so attentive, and the rooms were great.

We love this place and every member of its staff as well. The location is great and convenient to shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities. The rooms are all unique and remind you of an old southern plantation. We will definitely be returning soon!

We chose the Hotel Magnolia on a whim for a last minute trip to Gulf Shores when the beach hotels were all full, and we were so delighted with the experience! The room was small (as is to be expected in an older hotel) but beautifully restored with a modern bathroom, and the service was friendly and attentive without being...

50TH Birthday celebration weekend for my husband. it was a surprise. He had no clue of where we were staying. He totally enjoyed his birthday and the hotel staff was amazing. Everything about this B&B was wonderful. He even said we will be back. The area is safe and quiet. I highly recommend this B&B.

This was a different hotel than the ones in which we usually stay, and happily so. With kids at camp, we headed for the coast. One night in this beautiful hotel with so much history, coupled with some delightful walks around Foley, made this a visit we will definitely repeat. The basic room (Room 4) was lovely, but too small--we're...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are not your average hotel. We are over 100 years old built in 1908. The hotel has been lovingly restored with antiques. We offer a wonderful European Continental breakfast included in our room rate. It is a great place to celebrate the special events in your life. Each room is individual and boasts chandeliers in our guest rooms and private bathrooms. . Our beautifully landscaped courtyard complete with fountain is surrounded by crepe myrtles and hydrangeas. After all a hotel should be more than just a place to lay your head. ... more   less
