This is going to have to be your choice if you want to stay at a hotel rather then a more higher price rental house. If one is only staying a few night this place will work just fine. It is not on the beach but the public beach is across the street and easy to walk to. Over all it is a small town hotel no thrills but a clean room and everythang worked when we stayed.

Relaxing place for a mid-week stay. Walking distance to beach. Boat launch in the back. I'll be back!

I have been to the Island many times and have somehow managed to miss this little gem of a motel directly across from the Public Beach. The builiding is older, but it's clear the management has spent a good amount of time and money maintaining and improving the rooms. It's not the Ritz, but, when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, the new carpet and ceramic tile, the immaculately clean beds and linens and the amenitites (all you need for a trip to the Island - a fridge, super fast free Wi-Fi, and friendly staff). Deborah (Housekeeping) is to be commended for her friendliness, willingness to help, and her overall dedication to the motel. While we did experience some confusion with cards being charged twice, we can certainly overlook that oversight and will be back very soon. Well worth the money for the location and charm.

Room Tip: There is a 48-hour cancellation policy and your card is pre-authorized for one night in advance. The...

For anyone who is looking for the Ritz, this is NOT the place for you! Dauphin Island is great because it is quiet and quaint! It is definitely not a beach that someone would want to go to for partying or have many things to do. If you are looking for a great place to vacation with your family, small children, or just to relax, it is an AWESOME place to visit..... I am glad that Dauphin Island isn't commercialized like Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! It's a great place to just get away, enjoy fun in the sun, and relax. I stay at Gulf Breeze quite frequently and have never had a bad experience.The staff is very freindly every time I have stayed here! Gulf Breeze has fair prices, especially considering they are the only motel on the island!! So if you are the type that looks for luxury, you may want to book elsewhere!!! Bring your own hair dryer.... it really don't take up that much more space!!! If you are looking for luxury towels, bring your own or stop by the local store and buy yourself a beach towel!!! Now you know all you need to know! If you stay and aren't happy, it's your own fault! This gal has no complaints!!! I WILL be back to stay here every chance I get!!!

Room Tip: The apartment like rooms are great for families or a few people. We slept 7 people in this room. You...

I love Dauphin Island. This is the best motel because it is the ONLY motel on the island. So if you want a motel room this IS where you will stay. And it is not bad. Plenty of parking, lots of sunshine and you can walk to the beach in a few minutes. At the other end of the island is the Audubon bird sanctuary, historic Fort Gaines, plus an estuarium, whatever that is.

The Gulf Breeze charges just a little more than they could get away with if there was some competition. The next closest motel is 15-20 miles away, but if you stay there you won't wake up on this gorgeous island. There are 30-35 rooms here. Ours was large, freshly painted, had a fridge. The microwave is conveniently located in the guest laundry room. Pets are OK for an extra fee and you can launch a boat at the ramp out back.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Call ahead to get the best rates.
