Great views....great staff..quiet room...comfortable bed.! THE Location Is superb...You can walk easy 1/4 to 1/2 mile to at least 5 of the best seafood restaurants here. Pink pony especially for good food and fun. Great breakfast at the Island pancake house right below your room. Moderately priced and excellent. Pier within a mile. Wonderful stay!

We were on a two night stay for a friend's wedding. The staff was amazing, the room was amazing, and the view was breathtaking! We did encounter some construction going on in the room below us. The noise was annoying, but only lasted about an hour.

Best Western on the Beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama is very clean, pleasantly decorated, and the staff is very friendly, polite and efficient. I always stay here when I come to the beach. The Island Pancake House, located inside the hotel is excellent. No need to go anywhere else for breakfast or lunch.

I rated this hotel as average since there was not a "GOOD" option, otherwise I would have rated it as good. The hotel is dated, but they do try to keep it updated the best they can with paint and decor. However, because of it's age it has small rooms, very small bathrooms and smells like an older hotel. That...
