Family members and friends visiting patients at either BayPointe Children’s Hospital or EastPointe Hospital have numerous options for overnight lodging in Mobile or Baldwin counties.

Families living more than 25 miles from Mobile may look into the options offered by the Ronald McDonald House, which provides housing for families of hospitalized children.

AltaPointe does not recommend any specific hotels or motels in the Greater Mobile area. However, a search on the Internet will provide many options based on specific budgets, lengths of stay, number of guests and other details.
