          The Motel was excellent by being clean outside, inside and the room met all my expectations. One thing negative is that the inside pool was down for repairs. I was looking forward in going in the water. The outside pool was to cold for me.

          Don't bother staying here...terrible experience. Rooms are musty & outdated. I got bug bites inside of our room. The Internet definitely makes this hotel appear better than what it is. Would NEVER stay at BW on the beach again.

          The Hotel sits right on the water, screen doors are not a problem. In Alabama you have to be 21 unless proof of marriage. When unsure, leave pets home Ask for ocean view and you will have it or look at the parkijg lot

          You will be approximately 50 yards from the water. You will be on the beach!! And yes you can leave the door open and listen to the waves all night! Enjoy!!
