Thank you for letting us know about your stay. It was great having you here and we look forward to your next visit. We were delighted that you enjoyed the service and the breakfast while you were here. The lobby balcony is available all day from breakfast through our complimentary Sunset Reception. Feel free to take your snacks and beverages out on the balcony in the evenings and watch as the bay comes alive when the sun goes down or take your food back to your private balcony in one of our bay view rooms.
All staff of this hotel - management, reception desk, food service, housekeeping, etc - are exceptionally warm, friendly, welcoming, caring and professional. They are the finest asset at this property. The views are spectacular and location is great. Generous & wonderful food at breakfast and evening reception. We LOVE this hotel!
We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay with us and we hope to see you again soon. We were delighted to have you and to hear that you enjoyed the service and the food, both morning and evening. There are numerous local restaurants near the hotel that overlook the water and feature fabulous views and meals. When it is time for lunch or dinner ask any Associate for suggestions. They will be happy to assist you with recommendations and more details about these great places.
We stopped here last August as well as this August on our way to Destin. It makes the drive in to Destin easy on Saturday morning.
Nothing fancy, but safe and nice.
It is a clean, nice hotel to stay in. The bedding is clean and the beds are comfortable. The complimentary evening reception is perfect after a long day of travel (beer, lemonade, popcorn, cookies, cheese, crackers, peanuts). The view from their balcony and lobby of the bay is great!
The breakfast is good as well. The boardwalk is under construction but that didn't stop our son from spotting a gator down below.
Thanks for letting us know about your stay. We loved having you here and we look forward to seeing you again soon. We are glad you enjoyed the reception and the view from the private balcony in your room. If you are interested in getting a closer look at the wildlife in the Mobile Bay ask an Associate about the local delta resource center and bay cruises. They will be happy to help with details and directions.
The Hampton Inn and Suites is one of those places that you have a 99% chance of knowing what to expect. They are consistent and usually pretty awesome! This is one which falls neatly in that 99%.
The pluses: The comfy beds, white sheet covered duvets that you can literally fall face first on and know they are clean and waiting for you. Of the big chains and similar hotels, these have the best breakfasts. The hotel offers a nice simple complimentary cocktail hour on all days but Sundays (which I personally wish they would re-think!). Then there is the view of the bay, grab a drink and sit out and enjoy the view of Mobile 8 miles away. The top floor (6th) can only be accessed with a key card. It is quieter, and perfect if you seek peace. Highly recommend.
The minuses: Parking. It gets busy and parking is rough at best. Getting clobbered by a bulldog in the hotel is not something you would expect, but they allow pets. Seriously. A 7 lb lapdog, ok. A 70 lb bulldog, that's too much.
All in all being that close to I-10 and with easy access to beaches, Mobile and Pensacola, this is a wonderful choice!
We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. It was great having you here and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. We are delighted you enjoyed so many aspects of your visit. You are welcome to use the covered area in front of the hotel to load and unload if the parking is crowded and if you ever have an issue with a pet in the hotel please see any Associate and we will work to correct the problem.
We have stayed here several time and love it. Stay on the bayside. The view is so pretty. The boardwalk is great and you might even see a Gator. Currently the boardwalk is under reconstruction due to storm damage. The area is great and not too far from Fairhope, the beach or Mobile. Very convenient.
Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We were delighted to have you here and we look forward to your next visit. We are glad you continue to enjoy staying here and that you like the new boardwalk. If we can help you with suggestions and directions to local attractions on the bay just ask any Associate and they will be happy to help.
We checked in at the last minute when we decided not to drive all night. Everything was pristine, the beds very comfortable. In room coffee was good, breakfast outstanding. The only way it could have been more to our liking would be if the pool was indoors & had longer hours.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We loved having you here and we look forward to your next visit. We are glad you enjoyed the room and the amenities while you were here. We invite you to come back and spend some time here while exploring Mobile Bay. There are some great dining, shopping and attractions all located just minutes from the hotel. Any Associate will be happy to assist you with recommendations and directions.
