My husband and I checked in on 10/3 with a check out for 10/6. It was to be a short anniversary trip. When we checked in we let the front desk know that we may need to leave sooner due to Hurricane Matthew, since we live in Myrtle Beach, but at that time hurricane was still far out in Haiti....

The beach access and view was amazing. Rooms are very small, hallways are hot and carpet is stained. The bathroom is tiny. Room was supposed to have a small kitchen area, though it had a few dishes and pans it did not have any silverware. Elevator is hot and stinks. The pancake house restaurant is over priced, and the staff...

This hotel's rooms are just average. The restaurant service is TERRIBLE and The food is TERRIBLE! The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. But the restaurant staff is awful. Food was not hot only barely warm. Saving grace is room faced the gulf with a small balcony and 2 chairs. Short walk to the beach.

Relaxing and very nicely situated! Make sure to book a room towards the beach! Magnificant view of the Gulf and easy access to the beach! Slightly worn but clean. Front desk personnel very helpful and pleasant! Will be back some time!

Absolute disgraceful hotel. Got there to find the room was not ready and once it was ready it had a very damp smell. All the fixtures were dirty and looked like they have never been cleaned. I tried to stay one night and maybe change rooms in the morning. Bed was very itchy and I decided to pack my clothes...

Great stay! Family oriented place. We checked so many prices and this place was one of the cheapest. My wife and I chose price over comfort and had no idea how awesome and comfortable it would really be. A girl named Woshane (sweet little Jamaican girl) was so good to us! Her attitude alone sways my decision to return. Love...

I brought my parents, hubby and toddler on a weekend to Gulfshores. And we were looking for a place to stay. It was off-peak already so the stay was around $80/night. We were initially assigned to a room on the upper right side of the building (facing the bldg). I checked the view and it was limited because of the...

The hotel stay was good, room was clean and had friendly Desk Staff. The weather could have been a little better but we made the best of it. The Restaurant Breakfast food was horrible, over cooked bacon and sausage (like eating jerky) and the Service was very poor.. I will not eat there again.

We always stay at the Best Western on the Beach when we go to Gulf Shores. The rooms are huge and very clean. The pool is sparkling and you are right on the beach! Spend a few more dollars and get an ocean view room. It is worth it! There is a restaurant downstairs, but we preferred to eat around...
