Top tips for finding the perfect Gulf Shores hotel

  • If you are looking to be in the heart of the action in Gulf Shores then hotels by Gulf Shore Public Beach are a great option. The public beach marks the center of Gulf Shores and there are also many restaurants in the area such as DeSoto’s Seafood Kitchen and Bahama Bob’s Beach Side Cafe.
  • When booking hotels in Gulf Shores travelers may want to consider which airport they are flying into. Pensacola International Airport is east of Gulf Shores and the oceanfront hotels located in Orange Beach, Ono Island and Perdido Beach are all along the way from the airport to Gulf Shores and may be convenient areas to book a hotel in. However, if you are flying into Mobile Regional Airport, then Gulf Shores proper is your closest option.
  • Planning to do some fishing during your time in Gulf Shores? Perhaps a hotel near the Gulf State Park Pier would be ideal then. The pier is one of the main spots for anglers in Gulf Shores and there are many hotels nearby like The Lodge at Gulf State Park and The Lighthouse Resort.
  • Visiting Gulf Shores during Spring Break? Spring Break is a busy time of the year for Gulf Shores and for many other Gulf coast beach towns. It is highly recommended that visitors book hotels well in advance to make sure they have a variety of hotels to choose from, especially when booking hotels right on the beach.
  • Orange Beach is a great alternative area to look for hotels in if the hotels in Gulf Shores are already fully booked or don’t suit your needs. Orange Beach is just 15 minutes away from Gulf Shores by car and is also directly on the coast. It is also a convenient option for travelers flying into Pensacola International Airport as it is slightly closer to the airport than Gulf Shores.
