Gulf Shores Beach Hotel Guide

When Danish author Isak Dinesen said, “The cure for anything is salt water—sweat, tears, or the sea,” she created your life’s motto. You love to spend a hot summer day on the front porch with sweet tea and perspiration cleansing your pores. Likewise, a good book always sets the tears streaming down your face. As for the sea, wander out to the quiet stretches of sand and turquoise waves that line Gulf Shores, Alabama. Stay in one of our gorgeous Gulf Shores beachfront hotels and let the warm Gulf waters cure whatever ails you. But first, a little planning…

What is Gulf Shores known for?

Gulf Shores is known for exactly what you hope: blissful beaches and a small-town Southern atmosphere. Once a charming beach town that sprouted up along the Intracoastal Waterway, Gulf Shores has changed a lot since its earlier days. Considered one of the more secluded luxury destinations on the Gulf Coast, your next destination hasn’t grown too big for its britches. Scattered among picturesque Gulf Shores beach hotels, you’ll still see sun-kissed locals sidling up to seafood shacks—like DeSoto’s Seafood Kitchen and Sea N Suds—for pre-surf snacks and evening entrees. Speaking of the relaxing seaside vibes, you may be wondering…

What is the best beach in Gulf Shores, AL?

Gulf Shores is lined with beaches. In fact, the city limits on the entire south side of the city is coastline. You could say that the city is actually just one big beach, but everyone in town has their own favorite place to play in the waves. If you prefer to brave the waves from the captain’s seat, then float on over to Little Lagoon, which may be aptly named, but it is lined with docks and boats to charter in the deep blue water.

Gulf Shores Public Beach is a favorite for vacationing families and solo sunbathers alike because of the warm water, crystal sand, and quiet but gleeful ambiance. Multigenerational families come out to fly kites while seated just on the edge of the tide, while body surfers chase waves. You can access the beach from four main streets, so book a hotel near one of these streets:

  • Gulf Place: the main beach area, located off the thoroughfare Gulf Shores Parkway
  • West Second Street: just a few blocks west of Gulf Place
  • West Sixth Street: farther west, near Stanton Creek
  • Lagoon Pass: even farther west, with beach access near the Crystal Shores by Wyndham Vacation Rentals

Whether you stay on the lagoon or near your favorite seafood shack, one of our Gulf Shores hotels on the beach is sure to make you feel at home. With Travelocity’s price-matching guarantee, we’ll match the best deal available. Relax from the moment you start perusing our breezy accommodation options, including Lighthouse by Wyndham Vacation Rentals. When you’re looking for a cure from the workaday life and a big beach city doesn’t quite have the salt water to charm ratio you seek.
