Had to have my key cards reprogrammed four times in three days. This has been happening every time I stay at this hotel. I keep my cards in their sleeve and from any electronics but they still fail. This is getting very annoying especially when I leave my room to go to the workout facility.
Nice hotel. Walking distance to lots of downtown attractions, dining and entertainment.
I like the location. The pool.
Nice and clean
I lived in Mobile at one time and I wasn't a huge fan of the city. But Mobile has really worked to renew its downtown and I think the Battle House is a jewel. Beautifully redone and expanded, rich with history, great views of the port/bay, easy access off the freeway. Spa and fitness center are top notch. Spent a week here on business and would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The Battlehouse is not only a beautiful and historic site; it is a wonderful place for a romantic get-away. The rooms are luxurious, spacious, and quiet. The staff is very accommodating. Night life in downtown Mobile is quite lively. The hotel has 2 bars/restaurants of its own. It now has a spa which we did not have time to visit this trip. We will definitely be back.
The Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel and Spa was an unexpected special treat for a one-night stay between destinations on the way to a business conference with my husband. This beautiful restoration/renovation deserves particular attention and is a real bargain when compared to similar accomodations. There were two lovely wedding receptions in progress when we arrived at a late hour, with guests spilling out into the lobby and around the entrance. It was obvious why this would be a popular choice for such celebrations - and our guest room felt like a honeymoon getaway, too! The parking was easy, the staff was gracious and in-room breakfast was delicious. A very special treat - we wish we could have stayed longer and will most definitely return if we get the chance!
My husband and I stayed July 4th weekend and had a wonderful experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is absolutly beautiful. The rooms are big, spacious and fabulous. The bathrooms were BIG. The atmospere very regal and refined. If you want an escape from the ordinary this is it. Have Fun!
The hotel is nice & clean. The front desk check-in staff were fast and friendly. Room was clean and nicely furnished. Luggage carts are @ a premium. For ease and speed of check-out we had to carry all of our stuff by hand. Bellhops were a pain to deal with. Only other issues, the walls are thin and the room doors have no hydraulic assist, so they slam extremely loud and it sounds like the rude neighbors that insist on talking in the hall are sitting on the bed next to you.
I booked this hotel for my husband and I, for a two night romantic escape-from-the-kids weekend. I have to say, it was a bit of a let-down. The hotel itself is beautiful. What I did not appreciate: 1) our room was connected (ie, door between ours and another room) and 2) Valet parking only. We did hear a fair amount of noise from our neighbouring room, including kids squealing. The room itself was nice. Not as luxurious as the Monteleone in New Orleans (my all-time favourite 'cushy' hotel) but tastefully done. The beds were very comfortable. We ended up cancelling the second night.
Hotel was great, room was great but valet parking needs some work. We waited for almost 10 minutes for in a line of about 8-10 cars for someone to come check our car in. The next morning we got up and went out, car was waiting when we got down but when we came back to the hotel and checked the car back in we told them we would be leaving back out in a few hours. When we came back down almost 2 hours later our car was still sitting in the same location, directly in front of the doors, and was still running.
The BattleHouse Hotel is excellent for spending time with that special one on a special occasion. I spent my 25th birthday weekend at the BattleHouse. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was security at the front entrance no matter what time of the day it was. Each afternoon they would provide you with the weather forecast for the following day. Each morning the newspaper was waiting when I opened the door. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable that I've ever slept on. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Battle House has the air of an historic property, and after the recent rennovations and additions, the overall experience has only gotten better. Highly recommend.
Staff was extremely nice and helpful. The Inn had off-street parking for a low fee. Restaurants were within easy walking distance. Our room was lovely. Not much of a view but we didn't come to Mobile to look out of a window! Our next door neighbors were very loud way past midnight. People walking up and down the hallways need to be reminded to talk softly. Some visitors are trying to sleep between midnight and 7am. This problem is not unique to Hampton Inn.
Very convient for for downtown. Well maintained, clean and crisp! Awesome staff and nice breakfast!
Inside of room had been renovated. People were yelling all evening. By 10 they were yelling profanities and about the sex acts they would perform on eachother. I called the front office 5 times and emailed before somebody picked up. She was annoyed I was so upset. She came to my floor - where she could have seen people were congregated from the office and told them somebody had complained. (Not that they were being ridiculous. Horrible.
location was great noisy, beds were saggy/lumpy, room was dirty, the parking lot was loud and didn't seem particularly safe
This was our only alternative as Hurricane Matthew forced people west and all hotels filled up over night. Having read the reviews we were prepared for anything but were pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff, clean room, good bed and linen and bathroom. The "wooden" flooring was a welcome change from nasty hotel carpet. We clearly ended up in one of the renovated rooms so make sure to ask for one. The A/C was tired and couldn't be manually set so we had to pull the plug overnight not to freeze to death. The breakfast was a synthetic horror show.
The bed was ok The plumbing was bad, the floors was very gritty, the bathroom was scary, filthy. Update is need in bathroom. Housekeeper knows how to rush you out at 10:00 am, when check out is at 11:00
The housekeeping and maintenance staff was friendly and helpful. I was there on a Saturday a week before Mardi Gras. I'm sure that is the busiest time of year for them but when we found our shower didn't drain properly, the maintenance man came right away and fixed it. We did not have to wait. The room was much cleaner than when we stayed at this hotel 2 years ago. Pillows and blankets were comfortable. Convenient location. One out of two washers and dryers was broken.
Price: It was inexpensive. $65ish per night. Cleanliness: it was okay. If there was an okay column I'd put this there. The sink in the bath was clearly pretty new, and It looked like they'd done some other bathroom work recently. But, the shower curtain was a bit mildewed. The floor of the bathroom looked a bit dirty, but I couldn't tell if that was just a poorly done caulk job or if it was just dirty. Staff: They only had one person there. So, no cleaning crew on staff to handle unexpected items. Having said that, the lady that helped me in the morning was GREAT! really personable and smart. The night staff was just okay. Security: the property itself is in an okay neighborhood, but it feels close to sketchy stuff. the layout is more of a motel style as opposed to a hotel with an interior lobby and interior hall ways. In other words, anyone random can come knock on the door without having to pass the front desk at all. Comfort: The bedding felt fine, but my first room had a broken A/C and the second room had an A/C that was in Celsius or something other than fahrenheit.
Convience to the interstate and proxemity to downtown Overall cleanliness, need to worl harder on overall appearence of rooms (are renovatting at this time)
Close to where I needed to be I'm Mobile. Dead ants in the bed. Live ants in the bathroom. Dirty comforters Dirty toilet Hair on bathroom floor Extremely loud late night customers Room smelled like mold and carpet fresh.
Staff was excellent, accommodations were excellent. I will definitely return on my next visit.
Quaint warm and charming. Staff was very helpful.
Awesome historic B&B! I love history and this inn along with the immediate surrounding buildings take you back in time. It's like a little slice of history that the city forgot. Breakfast was great and the chef was very nice and knowledgeable. He also can accommodate almost any special dietary need. I couldn't stay longer!
