Based on the other reviews here, we decided to stay at this hotel. We, my husband and I, have 2 boys, 7 and almost 2. We learned on our last vacation that we needed a suite with a seperate room to put the little one down for a nap or to bed earlier than the rest of us. This place was perfect! There was a seperate bedroom with a king sized bed with 2 entrances to the attached bathroom. There was also a seperate 1/2 bath in the hallway so no one had to disturb anyone if they needed to go to the restroom. The boys loved the bunk beds in the hallway, and the pull out sofa bed wasn't too bad either (for a sofa bed). The kitchen was FULLY stocked with appliances, utensils, etc. There was even a crockpot! I took ours not knowing it would be there. But, there was everything one would need. We cooked for at least 2 meals a day. The staff was wonderful and friendly. We rented umbrellas and chairs from Ike's rental two of the days. We were on the 16th floor. The view from both sides of the hotel was breathtaking. One side is the ocean the other side is the bay with houses and business. The lights at night were so pretty. I read other reviews that said the elevators were slow. They are, and I could see being there in peak season, having to wait would be very annoying. But, we NEVER vacation in peak season! The room was very clean. We did get a few ants, but they took care of that right away. For the price, the fact that we could walk right out to the beach, and the room that we had, this is a GREAT value! Oh, and someone mentioned the pool being small. It is very comparable to the other condos in the area as far as I could see. It was SO nice to bring the kids back in in layers...Spend time at the beach, move in to the pool, then back to the room. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this location!!!!
There is a GREAT resteraunt right next door, two liquor stores across the street, a pizza/ice cream parlor across the street, and a gift shop right at the corner. You literally never have to leave!!!!! We visited the Gulf Shores Zoo and Alligator Alley while we were there. I highly recommend this for the kids.
