“Relaxing vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

This hotel is an older hotel but has been well maintained. Our room was large and very comfortable. The carpet needs to be stretched again in the rooms as our room (and others based on comments in the bar) have ripples in the carpet. The carpet is in good condition and does not need to be replaced. The hotel employees are very, very pleasant to deal with and very knowledgeable about stores and restaurants in the area. Their on sight restaurant was handy for breakfast, but it would be nicer if they had service for an outdoor seating area. The bar was nice, but wasn't opened the hours advertised. The sign said 11, but didn't actually open until 5. If it was opened earlier they could actually have outdoor service. Will return to this hotel as it was very nice and employees were very friendly. The best part of the hotel is the location. It is on the beach and all rooms overlook the gulf. It was in the restful area and it was very relaxing.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and have balconies overlooking the gulf.

Friendly staff, very welcoming lobby, spacious, clean, comfy room with a great view of the Gulf!! This was our first stay and we loved the peaceful, tranquil atmosphere. We will definitely be back again to stay at the Island House when in Orange Beach.

The staff was friendly, the view was outstanding, and the beach was great, but the room...not so much. This hotel is just one of many on the Orange Beach strip, and the lobby was attractive, but the hallway and room had an odor, the carpet felt wet, and despite the wonderful view and access to the beach, I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher floors have an exceptional view.

Everyone from the hotel staff are just great. We are warmly welcomed and made to feel valued as a guest. The restaurant serves delicious meals. If you have the extra money, opt for an executive room. It's well worth it. We look forward to our annual trek here each year.

Room Tip: Every room is non smoking so you won't have to deal with any lingering smells. All rooms face th...

Stayed here this past weekend for an event weekend. The staff is quite hospitable. The facilities are nice and clean. All of the rooms have a nice view of the beach and are nicely furnished. Nice beachfront.

We usually prefer Condo's when we go to the Beach. Our friends booked the Island House Hotel for us since they were staying there. As far as Hotels versus Condo's go...we were very pleased. Very large room with Mini Fridge and a Gulf View Balcony. Front desk clerks were very kind and helpful as to events in the area. We would stay there in the Off Season again. Prices for the rooms in Prime Season were as much as the Condo we usually stay at and would prefer the other location.

Room Tip: We had a room called Executive Suite. It was at the end of the hall with views from 3 sides of the...

No amenities, breakfast extra, needed a "porter" to assist you with luggage cart to your room as they wouldn't let cart out of their sight. No micro-wave or refrigerator. In room coffee (none in lobby) was mediocre at best.
