We were one of many people who needed to find a room during hurricane Irma, and we stayed at the Riviera Inn during this event. So this review is not your typical stay. In fact, the people staying there pushed the staff to their personal limits. Overall, it was nicer than we expected and cleaner than we expected. So it outdid our expectations. Lots of restaurants to walk to, park behind the motel, nice pool, and close to the beach and outlet stores. Foley is a great town with tons of unexpected things to do for kids and families. That includes Lambert's ThrowedRolls to Old Time Pottery. You can walk to the Shrimp Basket right next door and Dodges across the street! And if you wanted a place to stay and go to the beach, the beaches nearby are one of the nicest in the US to visit, with pure white sands. So overall, it is a great family vacation area and place to stay. Don't listen to any negative reviews. The location is perfect.
