We went to Orange Beach for Thanksgiving vacation and so I could run the Kaiser Realty Half Marathon. What a nice experience! Very friendly staff, beautiful location and close to a number of things.
We had a beach front room with a great view of the ocean. The room had a balcony with plastic patio furniture for sitting and eating. Nice touch. The continental breakfast each morning was plentiful. The beach was beautiful and clean and I even went for a swim in the ocean then took a dip to warm up in the hotel's hot tub.
There are nice restaurants within walking distance to the hotel including Bubba's Seafood House (great seafood-shrimp and crab). Within driving distance on Perdido Beach Blvd. try Cafe Grazie. You can also try Cosmo's on Canal Road.
Just a short drive to the "wharf" there are some great restaurants and shopping. Try Villaggio Grille and Ginny Lane Bar and Grill.
Golfing at Gulf State Park was nice - $50 per person with cart rental.
Would go back! Holiday Inn Express in Orange Beach is the place to stay!
