“Karate tournament”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Rooms were clean, but had a very unusual smell. We were close to the venue. Several restaurants to choose form in close proximity. I will most likely stay there again. The kids absolutely loved the large pool. good internet reception. so I was also able to work online.

Stayed and enjoyed one night at this beachfront hotel. Room was clean, employees friendly and enjoyed the beach from my balcony. Enjoyed breakfast at their restaurant. Would go there again when in the area.

Nice quality stay right on the beach. Rooms do need updated, but they are clean and well kept. The location and price of this hotel make it worth the stay. Do be aware though that the chairs and umbrellas on the beach are for rent and are not complementary for the guests of the hotel.

This hotel is quiet, clean, and reasonably priced. Great views of the gulf, easy beach access. In the heart of things. Restaurant has good food at good price. We will stay here again. The staff is very friendly but not intrusive. Rooms are clean. Fridge was so cold almost everything froze.

I decided to treat myself to a road trip to the beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama. I did not call or make reservations, so I took a chance on getting a good room on the beach. I called a few places when I arrived & I'm VERY glad I chose this hotel!!! True southern hospitality from the front desk, courteous & generous maid service, perfect view from 5th floor, & a great restaurant in the hotel!!! (See my other review for that.) I love this place & would definitely stay here again! The rates were better here than the other places I called, PLUS the awesome lady named Stephanie gave me a 10% discount for choosing Best Western! I couldn't be happier! ;) Check out my photos....

Great place to stay on the beach. We have two children and they loved the indoor pool! The decorations are a little out of date but the room and lobby were very clean and nice. The staff were very friendly and we had great service! I would stay here again.

Not many places to stay in gulf shores that are not condos. Hotel was nice, not a ton of kids everywhere. It was a peaceful and relaxing stay. Only thing we wished they had served free breakfast and that our balcony light would have worked.
