Gulf Shores

Best Western on the Beach

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Gulf Shores’ only oceanfront chain hotel, just steps from the sugary white sand
  • Child-friendly location under a mile to the zoo, a water park and other family-friendly activities
  • Popular restaurant on site known for its inventive pancakes and beachfront views
  • Play in the waves and the outdoor pool, or switch to the indoor pool on rainy days


The Gulf Coast is known for sugary white sands, clear waters and great fishing. The Best Western on the Beach Gulf Shores puts you right in the heart of the action. The only oceanfront chain hotel in the area is just steps from the ocean.

Request a room facing the ocean. Past guests on say it’s worth it to spend a few extra dollars to wake up to the sound of the rushing waves. Relax on your private balcony at dusk, and watch the changing colors of the waning sun. Be sure to request a higher floor if you want to enjoy your balcony at night in peace. The lowest two floors are within earshot of the hotel pool below.

Accommodations here are clean but basic, as the main attraction is the beachfront location and the proximity to other activities nearby. It’s just about a mile to the Zooland Animal Park, Waterville USA Waterpark and the Hummingbird Ziplines tour.

Fishing enthusiasts can take their choice of chartered boats to catch the big one, or take the younger set to try their hand at pier fishing on the Gulf State Park Pier, the second longest sea walkway in the Gulf of Mexico.

Fuel up on breakfast for a day of adventure at the on-site Island Pancake House which specializes in ocean views and namesake creations in far-out flavors like sweet potato and cheesecake, as well as a full breakfast and lunch menu.
