This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we chose the Best Western based upon reviews from other visitors. We were in an oceanfront room with a kitchenette with two queen beds.

No toilet paper holder, missing refrigerator rails, Pancake House prices are stupid high. Indoor pool is a shelter built over a pool in the middle of the parking lot, therefore you have to go OUTSIDE to access the INDOOR pool. Probably will not stay in Gulf Shores again.

Not worth the high price. Old hotel. Location is on the beach and in a great location. The indoor pool was extremely hot. The outdoor pool is very small. Hotel does not offer any beach or pool towels. Must use room towels.

We loved this location it is right on the beach and was perfect for our family stay. The staff was great especially Trena ! Location was perfect for dinner , shopping and site seeing. I would recommend this place. Most everything in in walking distance be sure and visit Rita's for ice cream treats.

Omg I loved it right by the beach clean room the beds were amazingly comfortable and the pool and jacuzzi was the best the only thing I disagree with you should not have to buy your breakfast when you pay 1500.00 for a room they should have a free breakfast or give you food coupons while your there!!

Great view of the gulf and walking distance to restaurants and bars. Rooms are not very sound proof and music/TV can be heard from surrounding rooms. Elevators are slow. Smoking is allowed near elevator and you have to walk through the smoke.
