“Amazing Gulf View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

My husband and I stayed at this property for two nights. It was the perfect time to go to Orange Beach. The place is almost deserted. Therefore, hotel rates are inexpensive and you don't have to deal with the crowds.

Beacuse of our Priority Club status, we were upgraded to a room with a gulf view. I would recommend PAYING for the gulf view if necessary. It was worth it. The only problem is that if you have door open and someone is in the pool, you hear everything. Although it wasn't beach weather, there's an entrance right to the beach at the hotel.

The only real problem I have with the hotel is that it's not completely non-smoking. And the smoking rooms aren't even segregated on their own floor. Therefore, when coming from our room and going to our room, we had to deal with the smell.

The staff was always helpful and attentive. The ladies who prepare breakfast are credits to the hotel. However, everyone is friendly and seem genuinely happy to have you at their hotel.

Our bathtub was having problems draining and before we came back the following day the problem was fixed. The internet was a bit slow at times, but managable.

We will absolutely return to Orange Beach and when we do, we will stay at this property.

Nice friendly spot on quiet Orange Beach AL. Soft white sand beach! Good food around. Please don't tell everybody, we want to keep this sweet spot to ourselves! Excellent service and great location right on the beach. We are here now and we don't want to leave!

Room Tip: Facing the gulf is the only way to go!

Being able to check in early is always a plus when rooms are available. The rooms are of decent size for the traveler. The room lacked electrical outlets for laptops, cell phone chargers etc. WIFI was good. Breakfast was good. More fruit would be nice for breakfast. Overall I would stay here again.

This hotel has a resort-like feel with its split swimming pools and hot tub and beach access. It is located in a quiet part of Orange Beach, within easy walking distance to restaurants, gift shops, and grocery stores. This hotel has a very pleasant vibe: not only is the staff friendly, but most of the guests are too. I guess most people are in a good mood when you're on the beach. Eveything is super clean and the breakfast is better than most. The Gulf Front Room was worth the extra charge.

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. A few of the good things:
- Generally friendly staff
- Good sized and fully-equipped rooms
- Excellent bathrooms
- Proximity to the beach is wonderful, and the pool outside was very nice and very clean
- Easy to park
- Within easy walking distance of a mini-golf / go-karting / arcade and there is also a huge giftshop right next to it
The only downside to the whole place was that breakfast wasn't very good - the bagels seemed totally wrong and there was barely any (sometimes no) fruit - a place next to a beach you'd expect a healthy option!

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would love to return.

How can anyone have anything bad to say about this HOLIDAY INN? We got a great rate (ok it was off season), the cinnamon rolls were perfect as always, the room was spotless, plenty of towels, good bed. When we visit Orange Beach with family and friends, we book a condo months in advance. This time we were just stopping in for one-more-night. It was wonderful. Drove over to our fav dinner spot, walked around and to great sleep. Could not ask for more! Thanks Holiday INN.

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
