Dauphin Island Harbor House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We were looking for some place to spend the weekend, other than a busy and noisy hotel room.We chose Dauphin House after reading what it had to offer. The moment we stepped into the quaint, inviting living area, we knew it was for us. George and Carol have been the owners for 22 years, their warm and friendly welcome, and their ability to make you feel as if you have known them longer than it took for them to register you, has to be part of their success. Our room had a view of the water and access to the balcony, that we took advantage of, as well as the chairs on the dock. Our room was also not the typical hotel room. It had a little rust on the door handle from the salt water air, which only added to its charm. The bed was comfortable, and the room neat and clean. The next morning our breakfast consisted of bacon, sausage, eggs(cooked to your liking), grits, biscuits, coffee, juice, and yogurt, cooked and served straight from the kitchen by George and Carol. We will definitely be returning. If you are looking for a quiet get away, in a friendly neighborhood, then this is the place. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, then the city is for you.

Room Tip: If you have trouble climbing stairs, ask for a room on the floor.

Stayed here a few years ago and would have rated place much higher than this recent visit... Place NOT worth price with all that's wrong:
really very outdated, rusty doors, rotten wood everywhere, many fixtures broken, exhaust fan and one of light fixtures in bathroom not working ....broken A/C (glad it was cool weather).
Not everything was bad: nice view of water from balcony, very quiet, Mr. George very nice and friendly and breakfast was decent.
This place could be really nice but needs tons of renovations

Room Tip: Quiet but needs help

"home away from home" may sound a little corny but here it's definitely true. George and Carol really make you feel you are family, not just hotel guests. This was our second time at Dauphin House, and when Carol gave us her famous island tour (also mentioned in another review) we still discovered new things on Dauphin Island, even though we thought we knew it pretty well by then. George and Carol also give good advice what to do in the Mobile/Biloxi/Pensacola area.
The breakfast is awesome and the B&B location superb!

Room Tip: we like the upstairs room with bay view

This place is comfortable and has a good breakfast. We enjoyed staying here and got to meet some interesting fellow travelers. If you want to be on this island, this is one of two choices. We did not go into the motel nearby, but it was nearby the main sort of town, where this BnB had a nice dock and wonderful view. Nothing is far away.

Room Tip: I would want to stay in one of the three inside rooms; one, two and three.

I booked a room online and didn't really know what to expect. So you'd think it would be easy for Dauphin House to exeed my expectations. It did. In every possible way. It was great and then some! Hosts Carol and George took me around the island for a tour. After we'd seen just about everything Dauphin Island has to offer (or at least an overview), they brought me to the Pelican Pub. A great place with friendly people. Just like Carol and George. I didn't really get to see my room until after we were back. The room itself was clean and had a very comfortable bed. The wireless internet actually worked and when I walked out the door in the morning... Wow. The view is something that I can't really explain with just words. In short: Carol, George, their rooms and the view over the Gulf of Mexico make Dauphin House a place that's definitely worth visiting. Have fun!

Room Tip: I had a room on the first floor. Can't really judge the rooms on the second floor.

Very nice hosts. Room was clean...exterior of B&B was slightly run down....flower bed needed weeding - general clean up and repairs would make it a much nicer place to visit. Our room (6) had a nice view of the water and the dock was a nice place to sit and relax. Convenient location for enjoying the island
