Called on Wednesday for a wedding on Friday. Spoke to the customer service person and asked for a room for Friday only. She stated that the typical rooms were had a 2 day minimum. However, they had a person who could not check-in till Saturday. So, they had a empty room on Friday. So, they booked us for Friday only.... More

We waited until the LAST minute to find a room on the beach. The hotel isn't great, but it isn't Horrible. Price is average hotel. I read all the bad reviews before hand and honestly the complaints weren't bad enough for us to not book. Of course if we were searching months in advance, this hotel would not be out... More

Room was clean and very spacious, could use some updating with the linens and towels other than that I would rank this room as average. Overall ranking of Hotel would fall in the average range as well.

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! Mary, the waitress/bartender... More

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...

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.
