Your going to Alabama? That was the response we got when telling family and friends where we were taking the kids for April vacation.We stayed for 5 nights over Easter. This was our second time staying at this Hampton Inn with wife and 2 kids. When we got there it was a little rowdy with drunk college kids but they were gone after a couple days. Pool was great. Beach very well maintained. Breakfast was typical for Hampton Inn. The We had an oceanfront room compared to the oceanfront suite we had last year which we liked as we weren't in the room all that much and made sure we the door was open every night so we could fall asleep listening to the waves. The kids had a blast searching for crabs on the beach, bring a flashlight. We hope to return next year. This hotel/beach are hidden gems! The staff was courteous and helpful.
