We we greeted cordially, but we had to wait an hour for our room. The desk clerk gave use some ice for our drinks and we headed out to the pool area to sunbath. We were right off the water so I walked down the beach? The room was nice, a little smaller than usual and on the 2nd level...

Awesome, Clean, and on the Beach. The manager was polite and very accommodating. (extra parking across the street for big trucks and trailers). The pool was nice and clean. The cleanest and best Hotel on the beach in Gulf Shores!!! The next time we go to Gulf Shores we will be definitely going back to the Best Western. Hands down.

We did not get a room facing the beach . The simple fact is I want to be setting on the beach if I have tie to set and look at it . The hotel staff was wonderful . The beds at this hotel are so comfortable . They have wooden lounge chairs on the beach so you don't have...

I stayed in one of the cottages across from the beach and I highly recommend staying there. It is a home away from home. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and overall the cottage has a homey feel. You also get access to the hotel pool and hot tub which is very convenient. I...

This place is perfect, except for no free breakfast. While there is a pancake place on-site, it is nothing to write home about. Other than that, this is our go-to place for a short weekend beach trip!

The front desk ladies are very nice and helpful. They listen to your complaints and report them. They offer ideas of where to eat. The noise from construction is super loud, but the manager limits the timing to an hour at a time. The indoor heated pool was COLD. We could not enjoy it, which was one reason we paid...

Out stay was only one night, but we absolutely loved it! The staff we interacted with (during phone call making reservation, front desk staff and a couple cleaning people) were very friendly. We got an amazing deal on an oceanview room with a great balcony to relax out on and soak in the view. The room was clean and while...
