I've stayed in this hotel off and on for the past 20 years. It suffered a lot of damage during the hurricane in 2005 and has slowly improved the exterior and interior of the building. I wasn't expecting the room to be as nice as it was on this visit. Three years ago the rooms were pretty run down but...

The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The Room had a kitchenette that included a fridge, stove/oven, microwave oven, coffee maker, and sink. Walking distance to the Hangout/Shrimp Festival. The staff was very friendly. The television was large and had a great picture. Easy walk to the beach.

A great place to stay for the National Shrimp Festival each October. The rooms are comfortable and the beach is fabulous. Service is friendly and prompt. The hotel is close to most of the other attractions in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

After Hurricane Matthew ended our plans to go to the Atlantic, we chose to drive south to Gulf Shores. The Best Western was a great choice for our family. On the beach, outdoor and indoor pools and clean rooms with a great staff.

"Joe" was on the desk ( a definite asset at this location; enjoyed his welcome banter immensely), and quickly provided a fantastic room. The beds were to die for; crisp sheets, a...

This Best Western was a great location right on the beach and within walking distance of gift shops and restaurants. The rooms and restaurant were clean and the food and service was very good. The hotel is a little old but still a fair value for the money. The rooms with the kitchenette had very small bathrooms. The view from...

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.
