“What a dump!”
Reviewed 10 March 2006

We stayed in this motel in April 2005. The room had recently been renovated (after the hurricane) but the contractors did an extremely poor job. The smell in the room was horrible, and even airing it out did no good. The door to the bathroom stuck so badly Hercules would have had a hard time opening it. There were bugs in the room. We were going to stay longer, but one night was enough to convince us to leave.

Stayed April 2005

While this hotel isn't on the beach, we thought it was a good value for the one night we stayed in Gulf Shores. If you are staying longer, I would recommend renting a condo or a house. We found the staff very nice and accomodating. It was a nice enough, clean room. Compared to other hotels in the area, this was a good deal.

the first room we were in was dirty & had no toilet tissue. the tv had no remote and would not come on. they moved us to a slightly better room, but it smelled funny. i would not ever consider staying at this location again, especially at the price we paid.

On our first trip to Gulf Shores, I called to make reservations and thought I had found a good deal on a room close to the beach.Was I wrong! We hated the location , the staff was not friendly and there was bugs in the bathroom. This was about four years ago. We would never stay again!

If you are only looking for bed for the night then this hotel would be OK, but if you want anything else go somewhere else

My family and I stayed here over night on the way to Florida. It was horrible! There was never anybody at the front desk and the house keeping was slow. We had to ask for clean towels three times in one night. The pool was unacceptable and there were kids running around unsupervised. The hotel room was less than average, and was outdated and uncomfortable. Try not to stay here, I think it is under new management and has not been unkept very well. This was last summer when we stayed, and the year before that it was acceptable.
