    Never been to Gulf Shores, location was great, on the beach, clean, private balcony, comfortable and nice. Was not impressed with the restaurant, so we went somewhere else. They took too long to seat people. The hotel itself was great though.

    Our spontaneous beach trip was everything we wanted it to be. This hotel is right on the beach and perfect for a quick getaway :) It has a pancake house in the lobby that was delicious, and is in walking distance to the Hangout and...More

    Thank you so much ! Guest love the Island Pancake House , must try the thick cut bacon !

    Great hotel. Excellent value for beach front property. Service is outstanding. Spend a little time eating breakfast, it is wonderful. It is worth a little extra to have a room that overlooks the ocean.

    Our view was amazing, the beds were the best I've ever slept on in a Hotel. The Pancake House is over priced for the quality of food. There is no Gym here so I was disappointed and the Hot Tub wasn't hot.

    No bar on site. But plenty of places in walking distance to grab a drink.

    There are elevators and I believe they have certain rooms that are accessible. Worth a call to the hotel.
