The Shoals’ Only Boutique Hotel. Some of the best music in the world has been produced in the beautiful Shoals area of Northwest Alabama. It has been said that it is in the water.

  • SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY AT ITS BEST - The front desk employees were beyond pleasurable, loved their southern hospitality. Location was great as well! Breakfast was amazing and when we checked in, we were offered cookies and lemonade. Lovely!

  • GREAT HOTEL! Although new it has period decor. The staff were very welcoming and there was a manager's complimentary reception every night we stayed - free drinks and eats. The room was quiet despite the hotel being on the main road. There was also a nice pool/bbq area to the rear which was a nice place to relax.

  • The hotel was easy to find and very close to the sights that we wanted to visit. Everything was clean and inviting including the continental breakfast and the evening hospitality hour.
