After checking 3 rooms that all smelled like mold, and musty smelling, we were offered the room above the office. Once we finally got a room, and settled in we noticed this must be a hotel for dogs. Everyone but us had dogs. Dogs peed on the ground in front of our door ( upstairs) and everyone's doors to. The rooms were clean, and bathroom could have been cleaner. Glad we only had to stay one night. It's definitely overpriced for what you get. Only plus side about this place was the auto dealer in front of it that restores old cars. That was cool to go look at. Oh and also it's not located near gulf shores beach. About 15-20 min drive.

The room has little odor but freshened when the AC is turned on. The service is better and affordable TV service. OWWWWWW and it was very cold like a North pole in the southern states. We needed a place like this one to stay.

*Positive - Very helpful front desk, clean room w/ microwave, fridge, ac, iron & hair dryer. Wood floor perfect for pets (no extra charge). Security cameras around property. *Negative - litter should be picked up continuously. Trash everywhere. Possibly plant floral shrubbery to brighten landscape.

Front office smelled really bad room door key card would not work..broken bars of shampoo no microwave. Aluminum pan under ac unit..and roaches crawling around after lights were turned off..never ever stay there again...had to end up going to another place around midnight....wouldnt advice anyone to stay there and No it's not remodeled like the web page says it is...rates were to high for such a dump infested roach motel

Hubby n I stayed here last night after a full tired day at beach.young couple who run place we're so sweet n was clean and great for price.outside pool looked clean but we didn't go in as it was definitely stay here again

I will never stay at this hotel again..1st when I get in my room the leg from the table falls off almost hitting my niece. We go downstairs to talk to the clerk she calls the manager and he tells us that since we booked through a third party he couldn't do anything about it, but after calling and speaking to a couple people he did refunded $50 which we shouldn't have went through all of that...the pics that I have taken are of another room that was rented also the same night...the white towels are placed on the floor bc the ac unit is leaking, mole on the bathroom wall, and rust stains on the tub.. just nasty I hope others see this and choose to Not stay him especially when you have management that dont give a damn..

Checked in around 3pm front desk staff was very friendly and polite. Rates were very reasonable for the location wasn't to far from the beach to walk. Staff were very helpful when asked about directions and recommendations for restaurants. will definitely be staying here again.

I'm usually not the type of person to take the time to write a bad review.. but this place was horrible specially for what they charge $220 per night is ridicules. The moment we walked in our room we started to itch, the sheets where dirty and look like they hadn't been charged in a while. The tv didn't work and when we tried calling the front desk for clean sheets the phones didn't work. The tile in the bathroom was falling apart as well.. the landscaping was so over grown we thought the hotel was abandoned.

The floor had mold ALL over it and the bathroom and floors were nasty. Don't waste your time booking this place, it may be cheap but it's not worth it AT ALL!! We told them about the mold when we checked out and all they did was give us a coupon for our next stay.. absolutely terrible service.

rundown $hi+hole hotel/motel! Dirty, grimy and nasty! Don't waste your money! Yuck! Front desk staff seemed very incompetent and confused all the time. Hotel in general lacked maintenance and was just generally rundown and unkept. The room was dirty and the bed linens were dirty so I had to ask for new ones which was very difficult to communicate for some reason. Spend a few extra dollars and stay elsewhere.
