Wonderful, helpful Employees, excellent location, rooms, beach, pools! Loved it and would love to go back some day!

This facility has it all. Full breakfast, great swimming pools, great access to the beach, and amazing hospitality

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast, walk out to beach from pool area

Very nice place to stay, staff is wonderful. Rooms are clean.

We got to our room and it was not on the water side how we were hoping. They easily moved us to a new room with a fabulous view and gave my mom a free shirt for visiting. Highly recommend them!

I had reasonable expectations. I think this hotel surpassed them! Clean room, great breakfast, pool, bar, and beach chairs. This is a family hotel, lots of children and groups.

Safe did not work. Construction noise from 8am to late at night. Doors would not shut or lock properly. Pool area under major construction and not what was presented on orbitz or HI websites. Toilet had urine stains on it when we walked in. Had to walk around the parking lot and thru construction zones to get to the beach and pool. We paid for 2 nights in advance. Stayed one night and left even though we paid for 2 nights, it was that bad. Will NEVER stay at another Holiday Inn property.

the bang for the buck was not even close. i know its on the beach, but with construction, painting ,plumbing, . going on it was less that delightful.

Not a very good experience due to the fact that construction work going on all weekend and they were using the elevator which is were our room happen to be. Was looking to quite get away for the weekend but didn’t get one.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a very convenient location close to great restaurants, shopping and on the beach. The pool area was very nice and clean. It was large enough to accommodate all their guests. We were surprised to find they also had a pool bar for our convenience. The staff was very congenial and helpful. We were short a coffee pod and was given what was needed instantly. The rooms were spacious with nice mattresses and a balcony. All in all it was a nice place to stay.

Enjoyed the location, the pool and the beach. Close to other activities

Hotel was on the beach with easy access to shops and food. Room was clean with great new beds. Very comfy! Problems with a squeaky air conditioner were handled promptly. Food service was great amenity. The Food Service Manager, Beth, was extremely friendly which is nice to see in any service industry! Wish she worked for me!!

My only complaint was the shower took forever to warm up. Despite that I would stay again.

We had an ocean view room which was amazing. The staff, especially Beckie, were wonderful. They were always cleaning, smiling and greeting us. It is probably the smallest hotel in the line along the beach which is a real benefit!! The breakfast was very good, the pool always clean, and the beach staff was phenomenal.

We had a wonderful time and the hotel staff was very courteous. One of the managers called our room just to check and see if we needed any thing and also to check to see if we needed any thing. That was the first time any hotel staff did that.I would definitely recommend this hotel to any one looking for a peaceful stay on the beach.

My financè and I stayed here for a weekend and these are the things we liked: Double pool and hot tub Poolside bar Hammocks A few different games to play at the pool Clean beach access with 2 volleyball nets Extremely clean room Courteous staff The only negatives we have are: Beach view is a very loose term in their book, our room was on the side of the building with the only view of the beach coming from leaning over the hand rail. Don't ask the staff for recommendations, one staffer actually recommended we go to Winn Dixie to get fresh seafood, when Blaylock's is 1 mile away and supplies 90 of the local restaurants with seafood.

We stayed at this hotel while we were in town for a wedding. I was shocked at how dingy this hotel is. Our room was depressing. Very dark and damp. The staff was very nice. This was the worst money I've ever spent on a hotel. It did have a great location and view. Feels like a $40 a night hotel. I paid almost 10 times that amount.

We enjoyed our stay and being right on the beach. You can always count on Holiday Inn and this was proven once again. Gulf Shores is a wonderful location and staying at this hotel made the trip even better! We are already talking about going back for another visit!
