Where I stayed
Sandpiper Resort - $65 pools
We had also been recommended to have a good ol' southern style breakfast at a place called "Spot of Tea". What a great place, great food, service and price.
In summary, Mobile is a thousand times better than New Orleans (although probably not worth traveling to specifically unless it is the Mardi Gras time).
The rest of the day we continued East along the Route 98 and back into Florida...we are close to closing the full circle around USA. Past Pensacola (probably derives from Peņascola in Spain) we stopped at a beach resort which we had a voucher for called "Sandpiper Resort"...and what an excellent surprise it turned out to be.
The place is right on the beach, with wonderful white sands, and has several heated pools (both indoor and outdoor), mini golf and all the rest. Given the price ($65 per night) we decided to have a little rest before pushing on, and enjoy some of the last sun rays we will be receiving in a few months!
