The cleanliness was superb in this bed and breakfast. I truly felt the "welcomeness" of staying in a house as opposed to a hotel. We were there for a wedding weekend and every issue we had as a wedding party felt like no problem at all for the staff. They went above and beyong to make sure we felt welcome. Chris and the everyday chef were more than accommodating and always hospitable.
Our yearly girls trip led us to Mobile, Alabama and the Fort Conde Inn. The four of us stayed in the Gonzales cottage at around $421 per night. While it was very nice and the beds were comfortable it was just okay, nothing special; although it was spotless. While the reservations were made many months ago they clearly were not prepared. We checked in with no problem and there was a short walk across the street to our three bedroom cottage. The cottage had a cold feel, nothing inviting. There were no hangers to hang our clothes so we had to drape our clothing over all the furniture, no robes, and one box of Kleenex in one of the bedrooms for the entire house. One other issue is that in the previous B&B's we have stayed at all over the US we have always enjoyed a Happy Hour with wine/ beer, hors d'oeuvres, and there is always a dish of pastries or candy for the guests. We were met with an honors bar with prices. Really, you pay $421 per night and you are not offered a glass of wine ( will explain this later). As a group we went to the manager to request a meeting with the owner ( who is a real estate developer from NYC). the absence of the robes we were told was due to a previous weekend bridal party who soiled the robes, but this was now Tuesday late evening! Also the tissue and hangers ( which were again blamed on the wedding party and the tissues on housekeeping). The management did not want to take ownership for these mishaps. We also spoke about the absence of the charges for happy hour. We were told they are more geared to be a wedding venue and not so much a B&B, and we noted to the owner they then need to convey that. We were sent two bottles of wine and since I didn't drink wine I could have my vodka, which was nice of him. The robes and hangers also appeared the next day, but we shouldn't of had to ask. Breakfast - okay, had much better. Jelly jars on a beautiful antique table in a beautiful dining room! Really, jelly jars on the table - tacky. Should have been placed in pretty white bowls with a little spoon, to match the rest of the table setting. Same menu every day. No croissants or special pastries, I think the "executive chef" popped some Pillsbury in the oven. Bottom line - just okay, would not recommend for a get away. Way overpriced for what you get.
We are 4 women that stay at a B n B every year, this being the fifth, that pay for and expect a 4 to 5 star stay, this being the most expensive that we have booked. Every one that we have stayed at offered a drink of your choice and homemade baked goods. Every evening 5:00:-600 they had drinks and horderves at no cost. We were disappointed when we didn't receive this and the manager did not seem to care that we were disappointed. We stayed in the Gonzales Cottage which was fabulous, but found that robes weren't in our rooms nor was tissues nor hangers. We wer told there was a bridal party prior to us and soiled the robes and took the hangers. We had reserved the cottage quite a few months in advance which they should have been prepared for us. We did get to speak to the owner the next day in which he did remedy the problems and hope he follows through for future guests.
I stayed here with a large group, and it was a wonderful place to stay. All the rooms were beautiful, spacious, and clean. The beds were comfortable, and all the details were taken care of. Not one complaint!
Myself and a business associate are with the U.S. Forest Service. We had been in the Houston, TX. area assisting with the recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey. We were then ordered to head to Florida to support recovery efforts for Hurricane Irma. As we approached Mobile we started looking for hotel rooms. We were unable to secure any rooms due to the large number of evacuees from Florida. We contacted the Fort Conde to see if they could help. They did have 2 rooms available however their price was well above our per diem. When we told them what we were going to be doing they reduced their price to be within our per diem levels. Thanks
My husband and I like to stay at bed and breakfasts when we travel, so we stayed at the Fort Conde Inn for a quick trip to Mobile. The room was one of the coziest and best decorated rooms we've stayed in - the bed was comfortable, it was mostly quiet (baby next door, no road noise), and the small refrigerator and microwave were helpful touches. The Inn is also perfectly located to the main restaurants, bars, and coffee shops - we were able to walk everyone we wanted to go. Our major complaint was with the breakfast offered at the Inn. The breakfast itself was subpar - we both agreed that we could have made the same breakfasts at home; they were not the upscale breakfasts we have seen at other B & B's (serving three cherry tomatoes alongside a waffle is just odd). There was also not enough seating to accommodate all of the guests, so we had to sit outside (in July!), but two of the waiters got into an argument about whether we (and another couple) could actually go eat outside. When you pay for a B & B, you expect a nice breakfast, and that was not the case here. Go in knowing that you'll want to eat breakfast elsewhere, and you'll enjoy your stay here.
We spent two nights at the Inn because we love heritage properties. We were not disappointed. It is beautifully and tastefully restored. Very close to downtown. I was working and setting off early but as I popped by, they made me a lovely breakfast. Thanks to all.
This is a most beautiful hotel. The environment takes you back to a bygone era. The architecture is beautiful. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was well done. The manager (Amanda) was courteous and helpful. My entire family was pleased. We all highly recommend Fort Conde Inn.
Nestled in a quite part of town...historical area, very interesting inn. The stacf was super friendly....the kitchen staff for breakgast was super nice and the breakfast was amazing! We had the seafood eggs Benedict...oh my!! Certainly one of the best things I have ever tasted!! If ever back in Mobile, would definately stay here! Its a great place!
We stayed in one of the carriage house rooms and loved it. The room was great. This Inn is everything you need if you are in the Mobile area. The breakfast was excellent! This will be our go to Inn when we return to Mobile.
