We had a simple 2-bed room with microwave and small fridge. Didn't want to cook on the trip! Rm 522. Full gulf view. My bed was about 4 feet from the sliding glass doors and I could watch and listen to the waves all night long. Still cool enough weather, didn't need a/c on. Our room was very clean. My...

I booked a last minute two-night trip for me and my daughters to get out of town during N.O. Mardi Gras. The price was great for gulf front, even for off-season. The staff was also really helpful. I originally booked online for a one-night stay in a two-King room, gulf front. The gulf front location was the most important aspect....

First off, I was surprised that these rooms had external doors. However, the street noise was barely noticible. The front desk personnel were adequate but not particularly friendly or informative. I thought this property had an indoor pool but I was unable to locate it and thought I was mistaken until I discovered it across the parking lot with entrance...

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. I loved the balcony and was pleasantly surprised that I had the kitchenette in the room. My kids were happy and we had some great family time. I noticed that they were working in the halls, but I never saw anyone working the entire weekend we were there. Very pleasant trip!!

Our ocean view room was spectacular and the rooms were very clean Heather and the rest of the crew were wonderful. Will definitely stay there again! The pancake restaurant was on site and offered an ocean view and although they were very busy they took time to smile and bring coffee. My wife and I had an exceptional experience.

The view from the Oceanside balcony was gorgeous! You can hear the Ocean in your bed! I would definitely stay again. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping on Gulf Shores Parkway. Beautiful beach, white sand, clean and super accessible. The kids enjoyed themselves. Most Enjoyable time had by all.

The staff was very attentive to our needs. The hotel is right on the beach and the balcony scene at sunset is amazing. The room was very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The soothing sound of the ocean waves slapping gently on the shore was very relaxing.

Everything we wanted from a hotel stay was met Rooms were over looking ocean with great view of beach and ocean. Staff went above and beyond their regular duties to make our stay pleasant . I would stay at this hotel next time I'm in Gulf Shores Alabama.
