My wife and I met a couple of friends here for a night after extending our weekend in Orange Beach. My friends stay here frequently and I can see why. It is a fairly new hotel and the staff was super friendly. It is located across the street from the beach but the back of the hotel is on a little bayou and a lot of the rooms have a little balcony. If you go, ask for a room in the back of the hotel. The breakfast is standard fare for a Fairfield but there are plenty of other choices in OB if you want more. A pretty good bank for you buck.
