Very nice, clean and aesthetically pleasing. The one downside is the property configuration...the parking was on the opposite side of the rooms. As a result, there is almost a ten minute walk from your car to your room so don't forget anything! Lol

Hi T.Fort, We are so thrilled that we assisted in creating such a wonderful getaway experience for you! Thank you for your compliments! We appreciate your feedback regarding the parking lot. From parking to the furthest room in building three, it is a little less than 1/4 of a mile, easily under five minutes. Thanks again for your comments.

The facility has it all. Great restaurant, multiple areas to enjoy time with your family close to the fishing pier and 28 miles of bike trails. Would easily come back!

It was on a state park making it less touristy which made us feel like we were all alone on the beach

Hi guest, Thank you for your review. As you mentioned, we are a unique property and pride ourselves in our sustainability and eco-friendly operations. We offer guests an interactive and educational experience with Gulf State Park while aiding in the preservation of all Alabama State Parks. We regularly hear from our guests they enjoy the fact that there are no condo towers on either side of the hotel, due to our location in Gulf State Park. Thanks again. Hope to see you again soon!

Hi guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. We understand the concerns with parking. Our hotel property is designed to preserve the natural dunes of the beach, so our layout is long east to west along the beach, rather than long north to south. The additional benefits are that you get a beautiful view of the Gulf as you make your way to your room. Fun fact about the parking spaces too, as you may have noticed, the uncovered parking spaces are permeable (a grid made of recycled plastic). This allows for rainwater to drain directly into the ground. We do apologize if the walk seemed excessive. We regret to hear you felt your bed was not as comfortable as you would like. We know everyone has different preferences with their beds. Thanks again for your review. We appreciate your time.
