This is a great option for Orange Beach. There are two things however that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. The first is that the breakfast area is WAAAAY to small for this sized hotel. We were lucky to find a two person table and wedged a family of four there to eat. The second is that the elevators (just two) are not enough for this sized hotel. Both issues are impossible to correct - just a design issue. Another possible knock is that they allow people in the pool to blast their own music and smoke pretty much anywhere around pool area - even in the pool! As someone who lives up north, we just are not used to that much smoking that close by, but it was not a big deal. Now, despite all this, the hotel is in an excellent location. The beach is awesome and there are numerous activities in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores to keep everyone happy. The white sand beach is really something and I think that Lower Alabama does not get enough recognition for their beaches. We really enjoyed ourselves.
