Fort Conde Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a magnificent B&B. From the stately outer appearance to the beautiful restoration. Built in 1836, this lovely old mansion fell into disrepair until the current owner bought and restored it. Details were not overlooked. The landing boards at the top of the stairs show nearly 180 years of wear, but continue to serve with pride. I stayed in the Meredith room (3) which was elegantly appointed in green tones. Quiet and comfortable. In the morning, I was greeted by the resident chef. He offered so many options for breakfast my head was spinning as they all sounded delightful. If you are looking for a safe bastion in a busy city...choose Fort Conde Inn!

Spent one night at Fort Conde Inn. I had business meetings, my wife stayed behind to sleep in. The good - great historical building, well appointed room, clean and excellent for a couples getaway. Breakfast was phenomenal, alone nearly worth the price of staying overnight! The extras such as late checkout, wine etc. are extra $$ but it is nice that they are offered. The bad - road noise outside is slightly distracting, if you want zero city noise you won’t get it here. The neighborhood area is neat but some unrenovated buildings and empty lots look sad. A nice dinner venue and perhaps a spa would fill out the area. As for the Inn, can’t wait to return to Mobile and stay here again.

The Fort Conde Inn exceeded my expectations in every way. Stayed two nights in The Meredith room and did not want to leave! The room was beautiful, spacious, and so clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable ever! Loved the peacefulness in the middle of the city. The staff members were all friendly, courteous, and helpful. Loved the breakfast with Chef Robbie and other travelers. One breakfast option was eggs Benedict over grilled English muffin with shrimp, asparagus, and champagne sauce. Delicious! Another option was creme brûlée French toast with caramel sauce. Other food choices were available and some changed daily. So good. While waiting for the made to order food, a variety of coffees, juices, fresh berries and fruit, muffins, and biscuits were served. The wait time was not long at all. The 2nd level porch was perfect for sitting and enjoying the morning. It was just outside the Meredith room. The cottages were across the narrow brick street from the front of the Inn. They looked beautiful. Loved the aroma of honeysuckle coming from the covered brick wall. The live oak trees provided great shade. The Fort Conde Inn is a great place to relax and enjoy great southern cuisine. True southern experience. Will definitely return soon!

My husband and I were there for two nights and we both wished it had been longer. The room was wonderful, the bed DIVINE! The atmosphere made you feel as if you had stepped back in time. Don't get me started on the breakfast!!!!! Chef Robbi does made to order and it can't be bet. Amanda was helpful and hospitable. It is a very short walk to downtown. Looking forward to a return trip.

The B&B is located within walking distance to the heart of Mobile but you would never know it by the peaceful surrounding, brick paved roads, trees and beautiful old houses. The owner of this B&B owns all the property near this hotel and is making it into a very peaceful oasis in the heart of a big city. The rooms are all different and we stayed in the Andy room (#9) in the courtyard. It is a small room but is very cosy and romantic. The room includes a queen bed with a fireplace, closet, dresser, big bathroom with a tub/shower that is handicap usable. The room also has a mini kitchenette with frig and microwave. The best part of the three night visit for us was the great people that stay at the B&B. Breakfast is at a big 10 person dining table where each person gets to have their breakfast made for them from a menu of five meals. Breakfast also includes expresso, K-cup coffee, the brew of the day, fresh orange juice, cranberry juice and apple juice. The conversations each morning were different as people moved in and out of the B&B each day. Parkin is free and on street outside the hotel.

We stayed in the main house upstairs in Rachel's room. This was a large room off the front of the house with an upstairs porch. The bathroom was small but had lovely handpainted Spanish tiles and was set up so you could manage quite well. The room had beautiful hard wood floors and was furnished nicely. The bed was very comfortable. The location was great as many things you would want to see or places to eat were within walking distance. The food was outstanding and the Chef wanted to please. This is a well run inn.

This place never disappoints. Within walking distance to downtown. Breakfast made to Order included. Very nice “honor” bar in the evenings. Magnificent room in the main inn; very nice rooms in the courtyard

Everything was perfect. Most relaxing time we’ve had in years. Conveniently located to so many sights and things to do. The staff was wonderful. The breakfast was one of the best we’ve had in years. The courtyard was a wonderful place to relax and read a book. The front porch a great place for o soak up the afternoon sun. We look forward to our next visit.

We had a good stay in the Meredith room. I would say that BF seemed a bit haphazard. It starts late and is "made to order" starting with fresh fruit salad, but that also means it is quite slow. Had an early start our last morning and there was only cold cereal available. Having said that, if you want a leisurely morning, you won't have a problem, and the food was delicious. The location was quiet despite being surrounded by highways, and it is an easy walk into the downtown area. Room was spacious and comfortable, fresh cookies available all day were yummy.

LOVED LOVED LOVED this place! It was as if we stepped back in time. The Inn consists of a main house and several houses that make a little neighborhood with brick streets, gas lights on street corners, and front porches with ferns. Our room was spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was so comfortable from the pillows to the Egyptian Cotton sheets. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was family style made to order! We WILL be back.
