Very nice! The older is older but well maintained. The lobby smelled so fantastic. I meant to ask what it was! Very pleasant staff. I liked that the hotel is smaller than the huge condos to either side-it meant their private beach was much less crowded than the others. Rent the chairs and umbrellas for the week!

So we had to immediately check out from an unacceptable hotel accommodation next door . Thank goodness Island House had a room available. Staff at front desk was great, room has a great view of the pool/beach/gulf. Would be a great place to bring kids for sand and pool. Also is directly across the street from Zekes Marina, so great...

I have been to Orange Beach for 6 years straight and this is the first time I have ever stayed at The Island House Hotel. 1st it is a nice place and good for a short visit, 3 to 4 days. Reasoning is simple, they will offer a refirgerator or mircowave for $20.00 per night 2nd we were there during... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, the beach is beautiful and the pool is nice. Great location. We really enjoyed that is is a smaller hotel and we were quite pleased with our experience. We will stay here again for sure.

Yes older hotel, but the corner Penthouse was worth the money. It was nice to be able to walk out to the beach without crossing traffic. We also enjoyed our balcony view every morning and evening. My only complaint is that they need to clean the elevators. The doors and windows were nasty.

This is my go-to place for staying at Orange Beach. I have never been disappointed. The rooms are lovely with great views. The Penthouse balcony is luxurious and intimate with private views of the Gulf. Staff are welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. I don't ever use the pool so can't comment. The beach rentals are appropriate and that staff are also... More

The rooms were dated, but clean and there is not really a need to be in the room other than sleep. The front desk staff was amazing. Only a foot bridge walk to the white sand beach. Close to many attractions and activities. Good got small business groups or families.

It's what we expected for what we paid. The location is good and the beach is nice. The room just never felt fresh and clean, though. Everything is dated. The best part of the hotel is the cafe. We only ate breakfast there, but I liked the open kitchen concept and the food was good. I would stay farther down... More

This is a nice hotel to stay at. Rooms are dated and could be remodeled, the shower does make a lot of noise. The good thing is that all of the rooms face the beach. There are no rooms on the south side of the hotel, though I recommend getting a higher room. We stayed on the second floor, the... More

Stayed here for work. My family enjoyed it. Its a good walk to the beach, but the staff was nice and accommodating. We stayed in the Penthouse which was spacious and open. The master was huge for the price point. I would recommend families staying at this location.
