I have read the reviews before we booked, but thought it could not be that bad. I was wrong and everything people post about this Hotel is true! The first thing that threw me off was the name of the hotel (Travel Lodge) is the name you see when you first get there and your like is this the right...

They were booked and did not have a room. they finally found us a room that was a dump! Our reservation was...

I booked this slum through Hotwire and man did I get the shaft, where to begin? Check in was slow and no one in the staff seemed to care or be in any hurry to do anything. The room stunk and we had a lamp in our room that looked as though it came out of the trash. Carpet was...

We booked a trip for Memorial Day weekend and just wanted a room on the cheap for a few nights. It's way overpriced for the quality. It's in an excellent location, but that's all it has going for it. Our room had a wet floor, smelled musty, bathroom smelled like bad B.O. Mold on bathroom ceiling, hole in front wall...

I 100% understand that you get what you pay for and we booked this hotel over a festival weekend however this place should be condemned! I could tell we had made a huge mistake when we had to call the hotel because they had rebranded and we didn't know where we were. Magnuson Inn, Days Inn, Travel Lodge? Who knows,...

Well to start this off..I'd sleep in my truck before I sleep in this place. When we got there they could not find our reservation so after about 30 mins they found a room to put us in then they tell us that they only have one hard copy key so we would have to get the key from the...

Worst hotel experience in a long time. Apologize for the long review but it was a long experience. Issues started when we couldn't find the hotel because the sign is still for Travelodge. Called the hotel to try and find them and got a very short, rude answer that it was the Travelodge. Check-in process was terrible. Right after I...

This is the absolute worst place I have ever, ever stayed. The experience was bad from check in to my early check out because the hotel WAS so horrible and the manager' "Johnny" was a class A jerk and terrible human being to boot. First off, the hotel doesn't even have the right name on it, Travel Lodge is on...

My boyfriend and I decided to take a last minute spring break trip to Gulf Shores and this was the only option close to the beach that was still available. I booked through the "Magnuson Inn and Suites" website, I got a great price for a king size room with a whirlpool. We arrived in town about two hours early...

I have to come to Gulf Shores quite often and this is the only hotel I will stay with. The staff is always so nice and the manager always goes above and beyond to make my stay absolutely perfect! You could stay on the other side of the bridge and pay double but why would you? (

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Red Roof Inn Gulf Shores is located less than two miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Fort Morgan, and within easy driving distance of Mobile, AL, and Pensacola, FL. Visit The Track, a family recreation center with go-karts, miniature golf, bumper cars and rides designed especially for kids under eight years of age. Cool off on those hot summer days at Waterville USA, boasting more than 20 acres of water slides, wave pools and floating pools. If you prefer beaches to waterparks, the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico are also nearby. The Wharf complex offers great shopping, dining and live entertainment, just a short 3 minute drive from the Red Roof Inn Gulf Shores. Visit historic Fort Morgan, which has stood guard at the mouth of Mobile Bay for more than 150 years. ... more   less
