Our room at the Malaga Inn
Room: Well, ick. The Malaga Inn is ranked #1 in Mobile on Tripadvisor.com, so obviously there are customers who have good experiences at this hotel. Not us. Super-hard mattress. Super-flat pillows. Creaky bed. (Small) TV missing buttons. Mismatched furniture, and not in a charming this-is-an-old-hotel way, either. Itchy/icky bedspread that we removed. Stained ceiling. A hundred other icky things, including a dirty, full ashtray that was left from a previous occupant *and*
Lobby: The lobby is okay, but what is really great about this hotel is the courtyard. It really is lovely.
Service: Check-in & check-out was fast.
Food: We didn't eat anything at the hotel. I don't think they have room service, but they do serve a breakfast, which we didn't try (we were all screaching-tires and smoking-luggage-wheels out of there).
Spa: No spa.
Extra: Again, the outside makes the hotel look really charming...and the courtyard is nice (although at night I wonder if they have a leak in some of the gas lanterns, because we felt like we were in the bottom rack of a Weber grill when we sat outside). BTW, the room that is featured on the hotel website looks *completely* different than the room we were given....so I don't really know if that means that it's all hit-or-miss, or what.
Our experience is this: Never, ever again - we even stayed out extra late the evening we were there so we wouldn't have to go back to this hotel. Yuck.
