We visited Gulf Shores for the 1st time this weekend. Happened to walk in to ask a question about their Pancake House and Heather was so awesome that we ended up changing hotels and staying there Sunday night. The room was very big and comfortable with any amenities that we needed. We were directly on the beach with an awesome...

When I arrived I was in a room on the street side - the staff, Heather I think, was very helpful & moved me to a beachside view! Plenty of parking, staff all very good, property to notch! My only negative was night latch not attached to the wall. Did not eat breakfast, wasted to, looked so delicious!

The hotel is very old and our door didn't shut well enough for me to feel comfortable there. The price is outrageous for such an old hotel and they don't even offer the usual free coffee and breakfast. They do have a restaurant that they recommend but don't even give you a coupon for a discount. The staff was friendly...

The hotel is old. That the building is old is obvious. The halls are narrow and have a musty smell. The hall carpet was dirty. The room was just adequate. The room did have a small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was barely adequate and way to small. The 'balcony" was small with old plastic chairs. The ocean view was...

Clean bed. No bugs seen. Hot shower. Carpet in the room and halls looked like it was from the 70's. My daughter's socks turned black from walking only in the room. Can not recommend until this place has some major renovations. Also, if you need a crib, there is only one available for the entire place. My buddy rented it...

Wonderful place to stay. Rooms clean, very friendly staff from checkin to checkout. You have to try blueberry cheesecake pancakes. They are not on the menu but were recommended by our waitress. The hotel motto is "Aim to please" and they really do try. We will stay here again next time we are in Gulf Shores.

the location was perfect, the staff was friendly, the accommodations were superb! We stayed in our of the private cottages, I loved that we had all the pleasures of home. The huge front porch allows you to hear the waves crash, smell the salt air, but still enjoy the privacy of a residence. The house was well stocked and the...

We spent three nights at the Gulf Shores Best Wedtern on the Beach. The pillow top beds were fantastic as were the pillows because there were both 2 soft and 2 firm pillows on each bed. The toiletries were also good quality, Bath & Body Works. The hotel itself is modest looking but you can't beat the location. The beach...
