This property was nice.....but needed a little love. The front staff were very gracious and helpful. Alicia checked us in very efficiently. Our room was the usual as they are...but little things needed some attention. The furniture looked worn and the grout in the bathroom needed some serious attention. The towels were thin and scratchy. I just think some things...

We stayed here on a quick overnight trip to Gulf Shores. Although a distance from the beach it was convenient to most attractions in the area. The rooms were clean and average in size and had refrigerators and microwaves. The room's lighting seemed dim even with all the lights turned on. We also never were able to connect to the...

Our trip into Florida turned into a traffic nightmare so we headed to Gulf shores. Meyer Realty had nothing so we went to Holiday Inn. Saved the night. Friendly staff, decent rooms and location. Get a room on the 1st floor in the back.

Spent one night here while attending a concert at the Wharf Amphitheater. Location was very central to everything and cost was reasonable for the busy tourist season. Facility was clean and staff was friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was a bit better than most hotel breakfast. Nice pool and fitness center were also a "plus". Only...

This hotel was very clean and nice. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Like other reviewers mentioned, the cinnamon rolls were delicious and a nice break from the typical hotel breakfast. As far as the room, it smelled great and was very clean. I liked that the mini fridge, Keurig, and microwave were in a small separate...
