For the money, this is a really average hotel. I was also very concerned about their security. The outside doors where left open all the time. Anyone could get up to the sleeping rooms. The rooms were clean but nothing to write home about it. The problem with Gulf Shores is the fact that they don't have many hotels. So...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 December 2016

I simply must thank Best Western on the Beach for going above and beyond. My daughter and son-in-law were in the Gatlinburg area this week, just beginning a week-long celebration of their 2nd anniversary, when the fires broke out. They experienced horror beyond imagination, as did so many. With the encouragement of friends and family, they didn't come home and...

Just an average hotel to stay in. The only plus side of our stay was the balcony view of the beach. Other than that don't expect any extra bells or whistles. We found an old sock and key chain left by a previous guest under the bed when we were cleaning our room to leave which shows how diligent they...

There were a few issues with the room, all of which the management worked diligently to correct. The shower handle was not working properly, but was fixed. There was a large amount of water in the corner of the room, which the maintenance department attempted to correct. The area remained very damp during our entire stay. The front desk staff,...

Great hotel right on the beach for our impromptu quick family beach trip after our Spring Break cruise to Mexico, which left from the port of Mobile. Rooms are equipped with a kitchenette, including a full size fridge, microwave, and stove. Hotel has a pancake restaurant, indoor pool and hot tubs...and an outdoor pool. Beach chairs and umbrellas available for...

Beds & pillows were comfy! Room was not ready when we arrived one hour after check-in time! Shower head was not adjustable and had low water pressure. Nice balcony with beautiful view. Room temperature was easy to adjust. Spacious room.

Hotel is right on the beach. Very clean. At check in, we were allowed to look at 3 rooms & choose the one we wanted. Very pleasant staff. Nice restaurant n hotel where we ate breakfast twice while enjoying a great view. Will definitely return

Our full gulf front room on the 1st floor was very disappointing. The pictures show a bed with an amazing ocean view, the 1st floor k room when in bed all you see is the side of the building next door.

Thank you for your stay with us , i see where you booked the one room on the ground floor and you see the ocean , however the higher floors give you greater view .
