A nice place to stay while looking across Mobile Bay. Rooms are very clean and owners go out of their way to make you comfortable. Across the street from the American Legion which is opened to the public. They now have a Tiki Bar on their beach with unbeatable prices.

This place is exactly what we were looking for. There is something that is just charming about this hotel. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The lady who checked us in has super nice and had great tips about the local area.

We spent nearly a week at Barons while we looked for a house to rent. The room was comfy and clean. It had all necessary amenities; a comfortable king bed, big screen TV, desk and chair, refrigerator, nice bathroom, but no microwave. We paid a little extra for our little dog. The owners were so personable. They recommended places to...

We checked in for a 3 night stay that got extended to 7 days. We were in the process of moving from Utah to Alabama and our furniture was late in arriving. Anil graciously extended our room twice for a total of 4 more days. The room had a king-sized bed, flat screen TV, WI-FI and a refrigerator. The room...

While this is an old-fashioned place, it is clean and comfortable. There is a restaurant/lounge nearby and is right across from Mobile Bay. The owner (Anil) is friendly and very chatty if you want company. His mother also works there with him. If you are looking for a quaint place that is small, nice, and within walking distance to Mobile...

This was an Emergency stay due to death, I had booked a room in Pensacola online and when arriving there was a lot of loitering going on outside the front office and a very bad area of town. This hotel was the closest one I could fine under $200.00 a night. Upon arriving the owners were extremely nice, however their...

The room was so pretty and clean. The only problem was the WiFi connection. Everyone was over the top is customer service and southern hospitality. I will always tell people to stay here. What a view and right next door to an awesome restaurant.

Nostalgic old Florida motel. Needs a little TLC on the outside, but room was clean, cokd, and comfy. Bonus that it's right by Gambino's, our restaurant of choice in Fairhope. We would stay here again. Oh, the people in the office are super nice.

I cannot begin to tell you how disgusting this place is. Nastiest motel ever and they should be ashamed to take people's money and provide them with these appalling accommodations. My husband and I were in town on last minute business and we weren't able to check in until around 8pm and we were given "the last room they had"...

We love love love Fairhope so decided to stay there instead of Gulf shores. Upon arrival we were hesitant because the outside was dingy and dated. But the inside was remodeled and clean so we stayed. It was ok but NO extra benefits! No microwave. No breakfast. 1 roll of tissue paper at a time. Then when we notified we...

“Make sure you get a new room on the south side with two stories. The others, while still clean, are a bit older.”

“Keep your expectations low as it is an older motel. Spend the most of your time across the street to enjoy the beauty of the bay.”

“To my knowledge, all of the rooms have been remodeled except room 30. Since it was our hospitality room for the family reunion that was fine with us. Request a remodeled room to be sure. My brother was in room 21 and said his wifi was spotty, probably a bit too far from the office. We had room 18, had no problem. Both are first floor rooms.”
