Default Anyone Here From Mobile, Alabama?

If you are, I could sure use some suggestions on where to stay that's real close to where the Holiday will be departing. Just from what I can tell, the Best Western Battleship Inn looks close. I was also told that Riverview Plaza is good, but they're booked up. Any idea's?

Thanks

I am not from Mobile, but I will be leaving on the Holiday out of Mobile on Oct 16th, we will be staying at the Radisson Admiral. They have a park and cruise hotel package for $99 per night. This gives you one nights stay and parking for your car while you are on your cruise with a shuttle to the ship. From what I have been told the cruise terminal is about 3.5 blocks from this hotel. I haven't stayed there yet, but hopefully it will be a decent place. Good luck in finding something. Radisson # is 251-432-8000.

We aren't sailling till Dec. 30th. I'm going to check out the Radisson also and David, I will only consider "Motel 6" as a last resort! Thanks anyway.

I will write a review on our return.

P.S. - My screen name, First Timer is from two years ago. This is our second cruise!

I did book us at the Radison for 10-21-04 the $99 also includes breakfast the next morning. Will let you know how we come out. As of right now they are going to have to contact us back about making arrangements to & from the docks. Since this is new to them they still have not got it worked out.

I did some more snooping around and found the Ramada. It looks close enough and their website looked pretty impressive, mentioned Carnival. Anyway, they have a room available for $66.75 and includes a conteintal breakfast. I would still be interested in hearing about your stay at the Radisson though, I'm sure I'd still have plenty of time to change reservations, if I needed to.

First timer, the Ramada is on the out skirts of downtown but in a good location. It's a very nice hotel. The Radison is a older hotel but kept up. Alot of history in it. Either choice is great.

Thanks Pat. You are referring to the Ramada on Church street, right? I hope I made a good choice.

Great news, Thanks. Now can I ask you a question?, what transportation should we use to get us from the airport to there?

Thanks

First timer, I would too ! lol !
I've stayed at Ramada there once several years ago. I had a relative that lived there in mobile, and he had passed away. While I was there, I got to do alittle sight seeing there in Mobile and at Dolphin Island. Its a great little town.
Hope you have a great cruise.

Happy cruising;
david

Thanks!

Mobile sounds like a nice town. I'm sure we'll get a chance to look around a bit before boarding.

Dauphin Island was hit really hard from hurricane Ivan. It's a shame. Love to do the car ferry from there to get to Gulf Shores. Hope it will be back soon.
