This is my first review, but had to take the time to share my wonderful experience, since some reviews make you skeptical. We stayed 6 nights, which was a perfect amount of time. This was a little drive for us driving from Michigan, but it was well worth every penny. We just got back yesterday, we went for the week of the forth of July. When we arrived we were greeted with the valet guy who got us a travel cart and helped unload all of our stuff. He even walked with us to our room and brought all of it in for us. Also, explained the hotel and stuff to do in the area. It is free to valet park. They do have a lot for you to park your own car with a ticket in your window, which we did the rest of the trip to come and go as we please. The lobby is beautiful when you walk in. We got there around 3:30 our room was ready we had the west tower pool/beach view 7th floor, it was a great view of everything. The room was very clean and loved the balcony. We had two sinks which was nice, one in the bathroom with shower and toilet and one outside the door. Also, the fridge is good size for drinks. Bring lots of water bottles. They have a ice machine on the floor and microwave over there is you wanted to bring microwave popcorn or etc. The pool area is just beautiful. The beach has the white sand and clear water. The pool area did not seem over crowded. I always got a pool chair. During the hotel weekend they had people walking around cleaning up towels left on chairs asking if you wanted drinks. They don't do that during the quiet weekdays. They have music playing during the day and live music on the weekend right by pool in a gazebo area. The pizza was good and reasonable. Ice cream was good it was hard scoop with cake cones or waffle cones or a cup. The most money was 3.50 for double scoop waffle cone. Also, you can bill everything to your room if you want so you don't have to carry money. The fireworks they do for the fourth of July were amazing, we watched them from our hotel room. They did them on July 5th and had a barbeque which was for purchase that was good. Also, a live band. They light them off from the beach. it was a 20 minute display with music playing during it. On your first day there I would recommend going to the orange beach visitor center and get brochures and coupons of the area. We liked the track for go karts, fat daddys for arcade and lulus buffet was nice for the kids and the hangout in gulf shores was fun, also, check out the wharf. Dolphin cruise was ok, we did sunny lady by the wharf we paid 20 a person then we went to visitor center I think we could have paid 10 somewhere else. Also, we did alley gator it was worth it. It is about 25 minutes away. $10 a person see lots of alligators. website is (gatoralleyfarm.com). Fun place to eat was Lamberts in Foley. You may wait 2 hours but it is well worth it. They throw hot fresh rolls at you. They are good. Look up there website. Lamberts Café in AL. Ducks Diner was real good for breakfast or lunch. They are all only open from 10 to 2 on certain days. I don't think they are open on Mon or Tues. Very good and reasonable. Just posted this places because it helps to have something to look at when your there that some else did. I would stay here again. This is the best place to stay in the area. A few people I met at the people said they have stayed here three years in a row and will only stay here. Lots of people from mobile Al who come for the weekend and said they only stay here.
