We have taken lots of calls today and spoken with lots of vacationers who are supposed to come in this weekend. Everyone is concerned about the storm and if the can make it down for the weekend. Truly we just do not know at this point.
We will know more tomorrow and I will update everyone at this time. For now we are happy to move your reservation if you would like! However we are asking everyone to wait to make any BIG decisions until we know more tomorrow. Below is what the city is telling us, and the current weather here is very rainy and overcast. But tomorrow it could be sunshine again!!! Please give us a call if you have any questions!!! See you soon.

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism would like to provide our industry partners with the following, verified information:Like all of the northern Gulf Coast, our area is currently under a Hurricane Watch. This means hurricane conditions are possible within the next 48 hours.The low pressure system in the southern Gulf of Mexico was upgraded to Tropical Storm Karen at 8 am this morning.Karen is expected to bring tropical storm force conditions to a portion of the northern Gulf Coast on Saturday evening.The watch area extends from Louisiana through the Florida panhandle. As with most systems, the path is not certain, and updates will be provided as they are available.
