Freshly renovated rooms and free breakfast in Gulf Shores
Fresh off a 2008 renovation, Microtel Inn And Suites Gulf Shores offers rooms for surprisingly low rates. Its Highway 59 location makes a convenient stopover for road-trippers (Interstates 10 and 65 are both accessible). And with the beach 3.5 miles away and numerous restaurants and attractions close by, the hotel also beckons for longer stays. Guests might, for example, go deep-sea fishing one day, and explore the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo the next. This property also has a few draws of its own -- namely, an on-site fitness center and an outdoor pool.
Highlights
  • All rooms and suites renovated in 2008
  • Complimentary continental breakfast and 24-hour coffee service
  • Fitness center and outdoor pool
  • Three-and-a-half miles from the beach

Rooms

Slept in Car it Was Sooooo Bad

Hotel reeked of cigarettes and it was filthy. The stench was unbearable and I could not stop my allergies once the mold, dust and dirt hit my nose. People were noisy, but if that had been the only issue I would have been happy. The air in the room did not ever cool the room. FINALLY, I gave up and slept in my car. The 8 chairs for the 80 people trying to eat breakfast was ill-planned and not sanitary either. PAID $25.00 more over the internet than the hotel was charging and people were actually paying with no reservation. This hotel brand used to have a positive connotation to me, but not sure I will ever stay at one again since this one was so disgusting. Sorry, but not an experience I want to EVER repeat.

I would only stay here if you like bed bugs!

We had two rooms. The part of our group that stayed in the other room got bit by bed bugs. The hotel has two buildings. We were put on the second floor of the building that doesn't have an elevator! Gee that was fun hauling heavy luggage up and down the STAIRS. This is the ONLY hotel I have ever stayed at that had more than one floor without an elevator. Microtel needs to think about installing at least one because guests could have accidents dragging heaving luggage up and down the stairs. Two in our group had knee trouble and having to climb stairs aggravated their knees.

Non-Smoking Room?

When I opened the door to the room I was knocked over by the smoke. Went to the desk to ensure I wasn't going to be charged for violating the policy. Desk offered to bring an air cleaner to the room an set it up when I was going out. Delivered the device, but don't think it did anything. When I got home my wife commented on the smell from the clothes that came out of my suitcase. I was only there two nights.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't drive to Gulf Shores, Al via the beach routes from Florida. Take I-10 or Hwy 98 and come from the North, A lot less traffic.

Worst Hotel Experience Ever !!!

This is by far the worst Hotel experience I have ever had the dissatisfaction at staying at. I was taking my girlfriend and her two young daughters to the beach in Gulf Shores. Upon checking in I was greeted by Nick and to his left was the so called manager Andrew. Nick checked me into room #262 and explained the way to get there. Upon opening room #262, my girlfriend accompanied by her two daughters got to see a naked male guest getting out of his shower. All I saw was a man’s rear. He was overly apologetic and embarrassed, but we were in his room. The desk clerk, Nick, in his infinite wisdom had given us someone else’s room key. Ours was supposed to be room #263. The so-called Hotel Manager Andrew offered no consolation except that they could contact O_ _ _ _ z since we didn’t book through them. The housekeeping staff did not change and wash our sheets every night. They simply just made the bed, because one of the girls had gotten strawberry poptart on the sheets and they lazily made the bed back up. The outside of the hotel was very appealing and clean. The rooms were small, cramped. There was no refrigerator or microwave and the tv was one of the large old style. The pool pic was highly distorted because it was a very small pool with no bathroom area in the middle of the lawn, so little kids had no where to use the bathroom, but probably in the pool. To top it off, it was rather embarrassing to explain to a five year old why she couldn’t play with her new gold wrapped balloon she had just found on the side of her bed, labeled as Magnum. This place need an Overhaul and I NEED a REFUND! $631.22

Decent for the money

I have only two complaints: the complimentary breakfast wasn't good and the wireless internet signal was very weak. Everything else was fine.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

You are about 15 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes from good restaurants in the opposite direction.

Good for a quick need

Our condo was sold one week before our arrival leaving us high and dry. This was about the only thing left without canceling the trip. It was fine. The beds were fine, it was fairly quiet. It's 3 miles up the beach so it was an easy drive back and forth to things as needed. It's nothing fancy, but we were happy having a place to stay. They have the standard continental free breakfast each morning which is nice. We had no complaints about the place. Would stay again if needed.

Tacky Jacks and Acme seafood are about a mile away hidden at the bottom of the bridge, they don't get that crowded and the food is pretty good!

Spur of the moment getaway

Our stay at this hotel was rather average I would say, nothing too special about it to separate it from the rest. After our first night, I guess we had slept in a little too long for the maids because when we got back our room was exactly as we left it. It's a good thing I'm a very clean person. However, the front desk staff were very kind and funny, and the location was great. It was just the right distance to everything we went to.
