NO PETS ARE ALLOWED AT THIS HOTEL !!! I don't care what it says they've changed owners red roof is where you'll likely be sent and they will try to give you the rate for this location there I planned a trip a month in advance online and didn't call to confirm drove all the way down to learn this...

This was the sorriest excuse for a hotel I've ever stayed. I WILL never stay at this place again. The room had a broken refrigerator. No phone. No towels. The so called continental breakfast was the biggest joke ever!!! Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere

This hotel used to be the LaQuinta Inn. Nothing really spectacular. Staff was friendly. Room was okay. Clean. Comfortable bed. Does need a little maintenance (bathroom seat was loose). Strong wifi signal. Skimpy breakfast. Was convenient for the ride to the Fort Morgan - Dauphin Island Ferry.

If you are planning a family trip and you have any type of standards I highly recommend staying somewhere else! Apparently this hotel must be under new management because my wife and I stayed at this facility 3 years ago and it was much more manageable! Needless to say, this last trip we discovered this hotel has lost its touch....

I want to start by saying that the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is really good for a hotel at the beach that is not on the beach. It is across the street from a shopping center that has great dining and a grocery store. On the down side, the rooms were not very well maintained. I...

We had no complaints for the entire week we stayed. The Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and when we complained about the fridge they immediately replaced it. The place was safe and it was close to everything. You can't beat the price!

No carpet in rooms, only Pergo floors. Shower curtain about to fall down. Hair dryer glued to the sink basin. Hall carpet to room was held down with white tape. Breakfast substandard. Furniture very worn with table leg almost worn through due to chair sliding into it. Location hard to locate from the street unless you knew it was there....

Peaceful stay. Room not that clean. Trash behind the night stand. Fridge not working. Needs a better cleaning crew but I paid cheap and got what I paid for. Bed comfy, staff very friendly. Parking lot dark and hard to see the drive way.

Worst stay ever!!!! No clean linens! It was not clean! Elevator didn't work the whole time which for me is fine but my husband is in a wheelchair and it was a bad experience. We asked to be moved to another room and management wouldn't even talk to us, as we were stuck on the 2nd floor for hours. We...
