Last minute trip so this was all that was available and ended up being pretty good
Nothing fancy, but exactly what we love! Just steps away from the beach! Very clean, very quiet, the pool over looks the ocean! Would forsure stay here anytime we go to the Destin area!
Great service and friendly people
Kids loved the location pool & ocean!
We loved our stay at Gulf Shores condominiums. Great little place, and location right on the beach.
Great location is the best thing. Our room was not the cleanest, but with it being next to the beach I can understand a little. No iron or ironing board was provided or coffee. We stayed in a room with three beds so we had six people and not enough dressers to put our clothes in so our room was a mess the whole time. The staff aren’t very friendly either. We did enjoy the location and privacy.
We came down for a quick (less than 48 hour) trip. Stayed one night. As far as price, not terrible for area. Has free breakfast, but looked and tasted like cardboard. Our room (420) had mold on the bed skirt and black mold on the baseboard by the adjoining room door.
Looked to be starting on the ceiling. I took pics. Front desk was notified, pictures shown, and she said they would get someone to check it. So if you happen to stay and get that room, I would check
to make sure repairs had been made.
Planned to visit Gulf Shores for 2 days and nights. Reserved a room here on their website (found it is better than through the other booking services online). Realized on the way there a hurricane was coming into the gulf, went on anyway. On check in, I inquired about the possibility of staying only 1 night instead of 2 and was told it would be OK. Decided to check out the next day and the staff could not have been nicer nor more accommodating ! Great place to stay for a frugal trip to the beach ! Great location, excellent staff, good breakfast (which is free). Plan to go again soon !!!!
This hotel was perfect for a long weekend trip for me and my fiance. Perfect location, you can walk to several shops, restaurants, liquor stores, etc. And most importantly, the beach is about a two minute walk across the street. We ate at Bahama Bobs across the street twice and the hotel has its own ice cream shop and snack bar in the parking lot. Our room was immaculate and we loved the full size fridge/freezer. The hotel is a little older but still great for the price. The ONLY negative was the pool. It looked pretty gross and sketchy but we weren’t there for the pool anyway. Breakfast could’ve been better but hey, it was free and filled us up. We will definitely be staying here again.
The pool was great !!!
We stayed in room 416 and the beds where
“TERRIBLE “ . SO VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!! Sounded like they where going to fall apart when you moved!! Everything else was GREAT.
We stayed from July 7, 2018 to July 10, 2018. The staff were friendly and courteous. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The continental breakfast was as good as big chain hotels. I loved the pool being on the third floor so that you have a beach view, but it looked like something was going up across the street that is going to block that view. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't mind be right across the street from the beach.
Everything was great!!! Highly recommend
We are a family of 6, the room was plenty big enough us. My kids LOVED the pool and the view of the ocean!! For the small amount we were in the room, it was just fine. The beds were so comfortable!! The staff was great!!
This was a great place to stay.Nice big rooms,very friendly staff and great location.They offered a small breakfast in the morning that had the nicest lady working.We are planning to go back there.We stayed on the fifth floor and had a good view of the ocean.Our room was cleaned everyday.No complaints about anything.Great stay
My husband booked this for an impromptu trip to the beach and after reading other reviews, I have to admit, I was a bit nervous. Granted, it is a budget hotel...but the shower was fantastic, it had a comfortable bed, lots of pillows, great towels (and plenty of them), a fridge and big, updated tv. Above all, the free breakfast is great and the staff is out of this world!!! Nothing wrong with saving money and staying here!
It was a great experience to stay here.
The pictures on the website are misleading. This hotel is in a good location and the price is decent for being right across from the beach. But the hotel is old and could use an upgrade. New furniture would be nice. We had to request new bedding for one bed due to a gross looking stain. I'm sure the bedding was actually clean, but still it looked bad. Instead of sending the new bedding up we had to go down to the lobby to get it. That's not the best service in my opinion. And then the old bedding sat on the floor by the door the rest of our stay. The "cleaning" person didn't even pick it up. They basically just made the beds and brought new towels. More than likely we won't stay here again.
From the reviews I was sketchy about staying here but so glad we did! Clean clean CLEAN! So not dissatisfied. Breakfast was ok as well!
This is an older motel but the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The pool area was on the 3rd floor and had a view of the ocean. The breakfast was only coffee, juice, cereal and fruit. We choose to skip the breakfast. If your looking for a lower cost, no frills place to stay that's close to the beach then this is a good choice.
This hotel was awesome and the price was great! Spent two nights and the room was clean and updated. Had a great weekend!
The staff was extremely friendly and we loved the location right across the street from the beach.
We stayed on the 3rd floor by the pool. Great view of the ocean. Hotel room was cleaned daily. Very satisfied. A Lil hiccup with breakfast they was remodeling but still accommodated us!! Would stay again without a doubt!!
My husband and I had the best time! The hotel is the best deal in Gulf Shores. Staff was super friendly and the hotel is right across from the beach.
I LOVED THE BAR AT THE HOTEL AND THE FRIENDLY PEOPLE
The staff was great ,they greeted us with friendly faces, and even through we showed up early they let us check in early. The rooms were clean. The rates were great for a hotel just across the road from the beach . Its a Hotel, and that's what we used it as ,a place to sleep and clean up at before we went to do what we went to Gulf Shores for. Every morning we left, when we came back our room was clean and ready for us again. Already planning next years trip will probably book it here again. If I had a complaint it would be the breakfast was not that great.
PROS - SHORT WALK TO A BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN BEACH. FREE BREAKFAST (EGGS, TOAST, CEREAL, BISCUITS AND GRAVY). ICE COLD A/C. CABLE. CLEAN ROOMS, PROMPT ROOM SERVICE AND POLITE EMPLOYEES. NICE POOL WITH GREAT VIEW.
CONS - BREAKFAST CLOSES RIGHT AT 9AM, DO NOT SHOW UP LATE! FULL SIZE BEDS - WOULD BE ALOT MORE COMFORTABLE IF QUEEN SIZE.
Cannot beat this location for the price. cross one street and you are at the beach.
We enjoy the trip and stay at the hotel. The weather was beautiful.
Our stay was great, the only problem we had was they charge the wrong credit card after giving them the correct card on check in date.
Super clean, super friendly, within 500 yds of Ocean! Will forsure be staying there again!
it was a pleasant place all the staff friendly and the breakfast was great....and 3 beds in the room wow did not expect that very roomy...
We never stay anywhere else. You cannot beat the price for the location and the rooms are nice, breakfast is good, and when we discovered our fridge wasn't working, another was delivered to our room in minutes.
The room was clean, and the staff was very accommodating
Our stay here was a lot better then I thought it was going to be. The reviews I saw had me so worried but when we arrived it was very clean and nice. We had two rooms one pointed to the ocean which is a walk across the street and the other view was of the lake which was also beautiful!! The service was ok. But whoever was the lady at night who answered the calls there pissed me off with her attitude but all in all it was really nice!!!
The stay was great but the breakfast was not up to expectations. I went down at 8 am and there were no more eggs, two cold burnt biscuits, and no spoons. When i inquired about spoons they told me there weren't any and to just eat my cereal carefully...seriously? Other than that the stay was nice.
Even with vehicle problems,(costly), on the way to gulf shores. We had a very good 2 day vacation. Thanks.
Great place to stay!
This is the 2nd time i have stayed here and both times it has been just fine. My one complaint is the breakfast it is not worth eating at all but its free so if you can choke it down go for it,we just bring some microwave sandwich and all is well. It is a easy walk to the beach not as much traffic as further east. I say you get what you pay for at this place. The staff is very friendly and the pool is kind of cool being elevated so you can see the beach. For a 3 day stay it is the best value but any longer you need a condo.
The room was very large and perfect for our beach vacation since we didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on a room. The breakfast wasn't good so we had to get breakfast somewhere else. It would have been nice to have a few more choices such as fruit, yogurt, and a waffle maker.
Room was dated but a place to hang your head for the night, breakfast was a joke that needs to be updated for sure!
Our family has stayed here several times , we absutely LOVE it! Their rooms are clean and spacious, pool is awesome. We love the complimentary breakfast, their coffee is the BEST! Everything is well kept, very clean and everyone is friendly. I would highly recommend it!! We have rented condos and stayed at dozens of places in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. This is the most cost efficient and centrally located .
The room was not the one they said I was going to get on the phone I had my grandchildren with me a 5 and a 3 year old it was supposed to been bigger
We had a great stay. Rooms were pretty clean. The pool was messed up for a day because someone had gotten sick and chemicals had to be replaced. Not much to choose from for the free breakfast menu but the food wasn't bad. All in all the visit was great! Great location!!!!
Very disappointed that I couldn't get front side of the hotel, even though I asked several weeks back and it was probably due to using Expedia to make reservation and even though we added a day at the beginning of trip by phone and requested it again. Something about the rooms are generated by the computer. Whatever.
Take the stairs if possible because the elevators are very slow, hot, humid, and tend to have an odor.
The room was sleepable and basically we only were in the room to cleanup and sleep. The shower was sufficient, king bed was comfortable, and A/C worked great.
Must say that the best thing about this hotel was the location to the beach.
I'd recommend this hotel if you are not needing to prepare any meals (had frig and microwave) and just need a room to shower and sleep, but stay on the front side because of the beach breeze and view.
Everything was great . Room was clean and neat , bed was comfortable and everything up to date . Will be staying there again .
Nice place great access to beach
The location was great. The staff was polite and helpful. The room was wat we wanted. I would stay there again.
Great location to get to the beach.
Location was awesome. Food was good, could've had a little more breakfast. Overall not bad at all
Service friendly great people great prices..
Very top line clean room..
Me , my husband & our 2 kids recently stayed at Beachside & we wish we were back there already! It was the first time for our 1 year old & 4 year old to see the ocean so it was exciting watching their faces & getting to make the memories we made. Besides not having a working phone in our room ( cord was ripped out of wall) we had a good experience, friendly helpful staff & enjoyed our stay. We'll be going back soon as possible
Very nice for the price.
This is a great place. The location is ideal. The staff was fantastic. I will be back. Just recommended Beachside to friends today.
Need cameras my cooler I caught someone trying to steal my cooler full of beverages and food for our trip.
Great time and Jasmine was very helpful!
for the amount of money I paid it was not all that. The TV was fuzzy, the room phone did not work, the floor was nasty, could not walk around barefooted and our bath towels had other people's hair on them even when we received new towels still had hair on them.
Great low price hotel for very close proximity to the beach and area hangouts. This is not a five star hotel- expect clean accommodations with fridge and microwave, decent breakfast compared to your typical low cost continental breakfasts. Nice pool and easy beach access. Easy check in and out - great restaurant attached. All in all definitely worth the stay for low budget trips.
The hotel is in the perfect location if your not looking to get in the sand all weekend. Local to all gas stations & shopping. The rooms were nice too but the cold floor was not what i expect when i forst wake up lol
The location was perfect, the service was great and I even got to enjoy some karaoke lol. I will definitely be staying again soon!!
Very freiendly staff, clean room, affordable, and all around nice beach trip!
Great location to the beach. Rooms were okay, needed some updates, but clean. The breakfast was the worst part of this place. There wasn't any food except for cereal.
Easy access to the beach! Walking distance to lots of fun stuff! Have stayed at Beachside Resort the last 2 years and plan to stay again in the future!
Wonderful staff & quick beach access, especially if you're on a tight budget, other than that,you get what you pay for. Breakfast...bring your own or go out, there's sucked!
Room was great great location only complaint was the bed was so uncomfortable. Ive slept in Prison beds that were softer.
From the time we registered, the staff were all very pleasant and attentive. We had only to ask and there was someone to help. Breakfast was available and plentiful. Thanks for the experience.
Our room was Very nice! Very up to date.I would definitely stay here again!! The staff was very friendly and helpful! The price was good too. Located directly across the street from the beach.
This hotel is right across the street from the beach. You can walk to everything..We enjoyed our stay it was just too short of a stay.
Very reasonably priced for a hotel across the street from the public beach! Right in the middle of lots of places to eat and shop! Staff wasn't that friendly but didn't have to interact with them much. Too was cleaned daily to our satisfaction. We did not eat breakfast there. The pool was freezing, even for kids. We would stay here again.
Everything was nice and clean .
The continental breakfast needed some improvements. You shouldn't run out of bread or juice for your guests, that's a no no. Other than that we had a great stay. Thank you, Byron Rehmert
Cheapest hotel I found.. Service was great. View beach from pool area.. Had a very nice stay. Would definitely book again
We stay here at least one time
A year- the value and location
would definitely stay here again.
Everything was great from front desk service(they worked 3/28 apx 8p-9p) I can't remember their names to give props but they were funny and very nice people persons. Although the breakfast was continental it wasn't what our family expected. First to begin the server was rude we let her know on several occasions the juices were out and she completely ignored us until someone else brought it to her attention also the fact that we couldn't take the breakfast to the bothered me because I have a injured husband in which he couldn't come down to eat breakfast. Overall besides horrible breakfast and server issues everything was great at our stay.
The girls at the front desk were really helpful but kind of rude. The rooms were great they were very clean. It was very easy to find walking distance from everything in Gulf Shores so it made the trip alot easier. Their parking sucks if you drive a truck but in a car I'm sure it'd be fine.
Pleasantly surprised. I will come back. Nice room for the money.
This hotel was great for a short stay for my husband and I. The location was great! Close to everything. Beach directly across the street. Only problem we had was being on the bottom floor close to the bar where they were singing karaoke late at night. But other than that it was a good experience.
Very nice place to stay!
My family stayed her for Spring Break 2015, and for it to be so close to the beach (directly across the street) it was very well priced. And the staff was very friendly and helpful in meeting every need. I would definitely stay here again!
We enjoyed our stay. Great place!
This was very affordable especially since it was spring break season. The location was great, right across the beach and within walking distance of tons of shops and restaurants. The building is older and the rooms are aged but other than that, it was a great time.
The service was all around excellent. The women behind the counter when we checked in were very welcoming and easy to work with. Our room (3 full beds) was perfect for us and they were very clean when we arrived.
They brought us new towels and made our beds every day because thats all I wanted done. The bar area and karaoke nights were very enjoyable as well.
Excellent stay and I would stay there again for the price and location!!!
Great location, cool bar downstairs, good service
The location is great, walking distance from the beach and food and shops. The staff are super nice too!
My husband and I traveled to Gulf Shores for an early spring getaway. We had no reservations and this hotel was our first stop. We were allowed to check in early with a reasonable rate.
The room had an odor in it,and bed was hard as a rock. The tv was fuzzy coul barely see some channels,and breakfast could have been better
This is not a luxury hotel, but it has clean, comfortable, nice size rooms at affordable prices. The hotel is located directly across the street from the beach and near restaurants. I would definitely stay there again in the future.
Would like a coffee pot in the room.
A nice room for a good price that was close to restaurants, activities and the beach. I was on top floor and had a beach view. The room was clean and the staff was nice
Great location. Nothing fancy but perfect for a couples weekend getaway
