Was hoping for the best
We really enjoyed our stay. The front entrance of the hotel was very clean. Our room was very clean and spacious. The bed was so comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and had plenty of towels plus hot running water. No foul odors in the hallways. The elevators were clean. Oh and the breakfast was amazing too, especially the egg white omelets. Keep up the good work.

Nice hotel/Good value
Nice hotel for business in Gulf Shores area! Too far from the beach for vacation. Clean and spacious room and bath. Staff is friendly and they have a pretty extensive breakfast offering. Only complaint is my room was next to the lobby and noisy as hell.
