Obviously old and needs renovating!

The room reaked mildew. It made me sick to go in there. The bed was dirty looking. The sheets were old and looked like they have been washed a trillion times. I rode around for ten minutes looking for the hotel, because the name is not Magnuson, it's the Travelodge. It was a bad experience. I wanted my money back, but I said whatever!

hotel stay

first of all it is not the magnusson inn. it is the called the travel inn. the room smelled awful. the bedspreads had stains on them, the pillowcases had stains on them. there was a huge place in the corner of the wall that looked like the wall was busting apart. spiderwebs on the ceilings and along the door frames. coffee maker was older than dirt. i would never recommend this place to anyone. pool was just nasty(couldnt even swim in it). AWFUL

not the worst, but probably won't go back

When we got there, check in was a breeze. Got into the room, and it smelled horrible. Couldn't get the shower on, so I went to call the front desk, and the phone didn't work. The next morning, I was going to turn the TV on for my kids while I took a shower, and the TV wouldn't come on. I even plugged it into a different outlet. I'm just glad we were only there for 1 night.

Worst hotel experience

This is a hotel I would not recommend to anyone. When we arrived at 9PM, there were no towels or toiletries in our room. We asked for those items at the front desk and were told they were completely out and we would have to return in the morning to retrieve them. At 9AM, when we returned to the front desk to request towels and toiletries, we were told towels were in the dryer and they would be delivered to our room in 10 minutes. After 45 minutes of waiting, we finally decided to go to the Target up the road and purchase our own. If we did not have our two small pets with us, which we had to pay an additional pet fee for, we would have left for good. The room was dirty and the service was terrible. The AC unit looked like something was spilled on it and no one bothered to wipe it off. The lamp on the table did not have a shade. The refigerator door was dirty. The shower curtain had hair on it. The handle bar in the bathtub had been replaced by PVC pipe and had shards of plastic sticking out of the side. Once the shower was running, there was obviously soap residue not wiped off the walls of the shower. And worse yet, there was mold growing all over the ceiling and wall of the bathroom. I didn't expect many amenities, but I didn't expect filth either.

Gulf Shores nightmare

We arrived to find the parking lot littered and filthy. We booked a non-smoking room, but they put us in a smoking room, and told us it wasn't their fault. They ran short on linens and our room only had one washcloth and two towels. The room appeared clean enough, but we discovered during the middle of the night that the room had roaches. The manager acted as if he could have cared less. Would never recommend this hotel to anyone, and we will not stay there again.

Gulf Shores Travelodge

Upon check in I discovered no towels or wash cloths or shampoo and soap in the room. The staff addressed the problem promptly to my satisfaction. Place was nice and I plan to stay there again.

Dirty and Rundown

The staff were friendly and obliging, but the room was dirty and in a poor state of disrepair. Wooden blocks holding up the aircon (in the room), a hole in the bathroom door, iron burns and tears in the carpet, loose toilet and dirty floors were just some of the things. The carpet had not been vacuumed and when we asked for it to be vacuumed the staff noted it, but the same clippings were still present on the floor the next day. The carpet was very dirty, some paint flaking off the walls and the mattresses and bedbases were tired and dirty. Take some insect repellent for the mosquitoes. Location was okay, but I would not stay here again.
