    About

    Is fun, surf and sun all calling your name? You'll be near beaches, warm rays and exciting attractions when staying at this Gulf Shores, AL hotel. You'll hear the serene sounds of the waves while staying at the Best Western on the Beach, as we're located right on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico - the surrounding beaches were voted as one of the top three beaches in the world by Southern Living, and also named by NRDC (National Resources Defense Council) as one of only thirteen Super Star Beaches in the nation. In addition Gulf Shores has recently been awarded by Family Fun Magazine as one of the top 10 tourist towns in the U.S; named in the top 10 best beaches for towns and families by Parents Magazine, one of the top 5 "Best Gulf Coast Beaches" by Travel Channel, and an environmental action group rated 200 of the top beach destinations in the U.S. where Gulf Shores and Gulf State Park were among only 13 that received a 5 star rating! During your stay, you can easily enjoy water sports, deep sea fishing and golfing. If you're looking for some retail therapy that won't break the bank, Tanger Outlet Mall is only ten miles away. Make that family trip one to remember - with Waterville USA Water Park, The Hangout, and Zooland Animal Park all within a mile of this Gulf Shores hotel, you'll never be far from adventure and excitement. Gulf State Park, Orange Beach Marina, Lake Shelby, Perdido Bay, Bon Secour Bay & Wildlife Refuge, The Track, Adventure Island, Tanger Outlet Mall, Mobile Bay, and Pensacola Greyhound Racetrack are also nearby.

The relaxation and excitement continues on the property with our two hot tubs, beach access, a kiddie pool, an indoor heated pool, an outdoor beachfront pool and Island Pancake House Restaurant.
