Heather was very professional and helpful! We decided to stay an extra night and she was very accommodating. The staff is very friendly and the view is amazing. It was a great place to stay. Even during Spring Break, it was very quiet and family oriented.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 December 2016

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...

8/10 Would stay again. It's was pretty cold and the weather was poor when we went. The rooms were mostly clean I didn't see any bugs or filth. You can't smoke on the balcony which was a little lame, since we were on the third floor. But I guess that does help keep the rooms and such clean so the...

Nice clean hotel on the ocean. The indoor pool was very warm and well kept. The beds in the room were outstanding. The staff were all very nice. We enjoyed our spring break here and will definitely be back soon.

For the money, this is a really average hotel. I was also very concerned about their security. The outside doors where left open all the time. Anyone could get up to the sleeping rooms. The rooms were clean but nothing to write home about it. The problem with Gulf Shores is the fact that they don't have many hotels. So...

Just an average hotel to stay in. The only plus side of our stay was the balcony view of the beach. Other than that don't expect any extra bells or whistles. We found an old sock and key chain left by a previous guest under the bed when we were cleaning our room to leave which shows how diligent they...

There were a few issues with the room, all of which the management worked diligently to correct. The shower handle was not working properly, but was fixed. There was a large amount of water in the corner of the room, which the maintenance department attempted to correct. The area remained very damp during our entire stay. The front desk staff,...

Great hotel right on the beach for our impromptu quick family beach trip after our Spring Break cruise to Mexico, which left from the port of Mobile. Rooms are equipped with a kitchenette, including a full size fridge, microwave, and stove. Hotel has a pancake restaurant, indoor pool and hot tubs...and an outdoor pool. Beach chairs and umbrellas available for...
