I simply must thank Best Western on the Beach for going above and beyond. My daughter and son-in-law were in the Gatlinburg area this week, just beginning a week-long celebration of their 2nd anniversary, when the fires broke out. They experienced horror beyond imagination, as did so many. With the encouragement of friends and family, they didn't come home and... More

We just came back from a 6 night stay at this hotel. This is the 2nd time we stayed there. The location is PERFECT! It is right on the beach and very close to shopping and dining. Our room was clean, had a kitchenette and an unbeatable ocean view. I gladly pay extra for ocean view every time! We were... More

Myself, my parter and our two friends came down to Gulf Shores for a man-cation. We had a blast and were very impressed with the hotel, views, beaches and food. The hotel was absolutely perfect! It was great to not have to deal with the headaches that come with stuffy outdated condos. It was great having 24 hour staff available... More

My husband and I just needed a quick overnight on the beach after visiting friends in the area... didn't need a condo, etc. We enjoyed a comfortable, clean room right over the sand with a great view of the gulf. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were only a mile from where we wanted to have dinner... and we... More

This is a really nice property! Right on the unbelievably white sands of Gulf Shores, AL. Very reasonably priced, large clean rooms, comfortable beds, cute little balcony. We liked it so much we came back for a second night. It has an attached restaurant looking out over the Gulf that had a wonderful selection of breakfast items. We were moving... More

This was a great hotel. It's an older hotel but it's been updated and our room had a kitchenette. It was close to the beach. It was very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. For $81 I thought it was awesome.

It's a rundown hotel that was suppose to be updated. We were not told that we had to pay extra $30 to have the beach balcony. Very disappointed there was no breakfast provided. They tried to clear the smoke that someone in the hotel was smoking. Would not stay there again.
