Absolutely beautiful family-friendly hotel. Right on the beach with room facing the beach and ocean. We were in room 304. 2 queen beds, kitchenette, balcony with table and chairs on it. Extremely clean and had good service while we were there. They did forget to replace the dish towels after we used them and they took them to launder, but...

Absolutely beautiful indoor pool across from parking. Adorable chairs set up inside of property to sit and look at beach but not walk to beach. Chair and umbrella rentals on beach from...

This was a last minute vacation for my family before my son went back to school. We have not had a vacation in many years so we were very excited. We were not disappointed by anything during our stay. The location of the hotel was just minutes from many of the different attractions offered in the area. The parking lot...

Just returned home from a visit to Gulf Shores. Hotel was exactly what I expected. Clean, reasonable rooms. Staff was great. My battery died the first night. Not only did the maintenance guy(Wes) offer to give me a jump start, he took me to Walmart to buy jumper cables. Then gave me a jump. Really nice guy!! Won't find that...

Hotel had clean rooms and a friendly, helpful staff. It was located right on the beach with two pools (indoor and outdoor) as well. Restaurant food was good but they need a hostess and better organization.

Stayed in room 99, room is arranged where the bed is right next to the interior hallway and elevator. There was so much noise that it kinda ruined the stay. Avoid room 99! Room was very dated, but not bad at all. The beach was nearly on top of the hotel. When we arrived there was a roach on the...
