“Nice View From Gulf View Room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

My husband and I stayed her Columbus Day weekend our friends were not able to get in this hotel because it was booked up at the last minute but they were not far away. I arrived early around 1:30 and was told my room was not ready and Amber put my name on the early arrival list about 15 minutes later I received a call that our room was available, I was happy and ask was it clean she assured me it was. The hotel is a step down from where I usually stay, there was nothing fancy about the hotel just average. I usually make a request when I make reservations not to be near anything noisy and I forgot to do this and my room was near everything noisy (ice machine, coke machine, linen closet, stairs) I did not complain because we needed to check in asap. I really was not happy with breakfast thin crispy bacon crumbs, fake eggs, and bagels which my husband had a mole was on it, I advised the kitchen associate of this and after that I ate at waffle house the next day. The room was clean but dated. I think for the price this hotel needs to be remodeled but I guess what your paying for is the acess to the beach and the view. Also the employees and Amber and Michele was very friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms near exit, linen closet, ice machines are louder

We stayed here for one night on our way to Orlando Sept. 20th. We got the room for a great price and got to stay right on the beach. Our room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Being able to walk out the door to the beach was great. The swimming pool area was very nice. Our grand children really enjoyed staying there. We didn't try the breakfast because we had to hit the road early. We had no complaints and would definitely like to return for a longer stay some time.

My family went to Orange Beach for a short four day trip, and this hotel was the perfect fit for us. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by a very friendly staff that was helpful the whole time we were there. Breakfast was hot and plentiful, rooms were clean and spacious, and the pool area was well kept and very nice for a small hotel. This little hotel was beyond our expectations and made our trip a very memorable one.

Room Tip: If you have small children, you may want to ask for a room on the bottom floor and by the pool. Tho...

Checked into a room that was not ready for customers. After telling the frontdesk I was a platinum member I was upgraded to a beach view room.

Bring your own pillows. The hotel pillows were wornout sacks of loose foam rubber.

Room Tip: You'll want a 3rd floor and above on the beach side of this property.

Gulf shores how we miss you - and what a great location to enjoy it from. The hotel is a moderate hotel - great price for a excellent location! You just walk right past the pool and on to the beach. Every one from the front desk to the cleaning staff .. to the bartender in the bar (thanks Billy - NOLA was awesome based on your suggestions!) were so friendly and kind. We loved our trip so much - we almost considered staying longer and missing out on paid days in New Orleans. We will definitely be back and stay at the HI Express again.

Room Tip: The included breakfast - excellent value. Request beach towels right away since they go fast.
