“Perfect family getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

First let me say that our kids wouldn't know if they were in Maui or Orange Beach. As long as they stay in a hotel and are on the beach, they are fired up. They think anything is the Ritz Carlton. That being said, we stayed here for 6 nights mid-August and had a wonderful vacation. When we checked into the hotel, we were upgraded to a suite because of my husband's Marriott status, so this was an awesome bonus for us. Our room was spacious with two beds and a separate living area with a sofa and TV area. There was a mini fridge that we filled up and plenty of space in the room for all of our beach gear, coolers and luggage.

The staff at the hotel were extremely nice and helpful. We loved our little golf cart ride every day to the beach. We all piled in with our chairs, umbrella and beach gear and were dropped off at the end of the street. We crossed the street and we were right at the private boardwalk to the beach. The beach was incredible. Beautiful sand, clean, the nicest people. The major complaint we had were the jellyfish. They were EVERYWHERE. I know this is a random thing and they are not always there, but they definitely limited our time in the ocean. We also saw a huge sting ray which was cool, but a guy got stung, which was not cool. Tons of sea shells and beautiful walks on the beach. There was a shower on the boardwalk to rinse off the sand right by the phone to call the golf cart to come back and get you. When we were leaving, one of the employees showed my husband where the hose was at the hotel so we could hose everything off before we drove home.

Tons of great restaurants in the area and two grocery stores very close to the hotel with all your needs. The free breakfast at the hotel was perfect for the kids and there were healthy choices for us as well. Free Wifi worked very well and my husband was able to work a few times down in the breakfast area while I got the kids ready for the beach. It also worked in the rooms as well. Never a spotty connection.

We did miss not being in a condo and just walking right up and having the balcony view of the beach, but we stayed here for a week for free, so we have zero complaints. Extremely clean. We would stay here again.

After asking to see a room (the manager showed us around) we said we would stay one night. We are on our third night and plan on staying two more. The staff is great, the hotel is very clean and the pool is heated and wonderful. Our room has micro and frig. Everything is close by you can walk to stores and restaurants.
We will definitely stay here again and recommend the Fairfield at Orange Beach, AL.

Room Tip: All seemed Rey nice. Noticed some have balconies

Staying here is like visiting a fun family member with a really big house! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We love the atmosphere--clean, well-maintained, comfortable. This is our 3rd visit to this property, and we keep loving it more every time. We can't say enough good things about the experience. It's all you would hope for from a higher-end Marriott property, without the price. I'd love the beach to be just outside the door, but for nightly difference of at least $30, I can walk or take the personal golf-cart-shuttle! LOVE this place. But don't tell anyone...

Room Tip: We love the top floor of any hotel, away from the hallway noise. BUT...this property never seems to...

Very clean and very good staff. One hint though avoid the Wal-Mart close by. Try Winn Dixie and Publix instead. The good morning breakfast is more than anyone could expect. We will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Choose a 3rd floor room very quite there.

This hotel is suitable for any type of traveler. I would definately stay here again. Excellent staff, clean rooms, great complimentary breakfast, centrally located to restaurants, shopping, and the beach is just across the street.

If you look at most of my other reviews, you'll see that my work takes me all around the world--usually to some very interesting places. For a while in September and October, however, this time I would be pretty close to home. I spent about 14 nights overall working here, and I would definitely stay here again if I came back.

As a brief aside, it's very close to the beach, so I would probably choose it for leisure, as well, if the price was right.

Breakfast had a great variety every day. The workout room was modest, but it did have a few cardio machines, all of which have a personal tv mounted on them. The rooms were good like you would expect. One note: if TV quality is important to you, you should go elsewhere. The picture is fuzzy to the point of it being distracting. If you don't care about that, you'll be fine.

The staff were friendly, and I felt comfortable there. For a business traveler who might spend extended periods there, the proximity to nearby grocery stores is a major plus.

I would recommend it, and I will stay here again, but there are probably hotels nearby that are doing as well.

We visited the area for a few days and stayed at this hotel due to the great price. The rooms were great as you expect from a Marriott brand. They have a Continental breakfast with the normal items as well as packaged breakfast sandwiches you can heat in the microwave. The entire staff were very nice and helpful especially the lady setting up the breakfast area. I would not hesitate staying here again.
