The Original Romar House Bed & Breakfast Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Orange Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 8, 2014

As a single traveler, I spent 3 nights at the Original Romar House and feel rested and rejuvenated! Thank you Greg and Deborah for understanding the balance in availability as hosts and privacy needed that many bed and breakfast managers fail to get right. I enjoyed our great conversations at wine hour and breakfast. It was nice to have the security of having someone near but be able to come and go in the house as I pleased.The Marti Gras room on the ground floor was very nice with the stain glass features and had room for a love seat. The beach was just a very short walk down the wooden walkway and was some of the most beautiful I have seen. I rented a pair of wood chaises from the beach vendor next door at the condos for 30 dollars (multiple day discount available), and it came with cushions and an umbrella. Since it was the end of March, the beaches were not crowded and it was perfect for what I needed. The breakfasts were very good and filling. There are good restaurants, stores and activities nearby if that is what you want. I will definitely be returning!!

Room Tip: The Marti Gras is probably larger than most rooms downstairs and is bright due to being on the corne...

This was the best choice we made on our recent trip to Pensacola and the Orange Beach area. We stayed 2 nights and will definitely be back. The reception was very welcoming and the amenities are great. The house is very clean and well kept up. The house is very comfortable with its own bar, pool area and easy access to the beach.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Deborah and I both appreciate the effort folks like you make and taking your time to say a few words about the Original Romar House. We love the title "definite do over" because that says to us that you'll be sharing some time again with us in the future if you can. Happy Travels! Greg & Deborah

Just now getting around to writing a review for our stay during April 2012, and everything was absolutely perfect! First time to visit Orange Beach, so I literally spent days researching the internet and happened upon this B&B (I refuse to stay in a high rise). We selected the cottage which offered a full kitchen and gave us additional room to spread out. When we arrived (after an 8 hour drive) Deborah welcomed us and Greg assisted with our luggage and they are absolutely delightful. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms are extremely clean (very important). We enjoyed walking the clean and un-crowded beach, digging for shells, lounging by the pool, wine and cheese in the evenings -- it was great getting to know the other guests. The owner (Jerry) stopped by one evening and we literally laughed the night away...it was great fun for everyone! Since there are no children on premises, it was actually one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had and the bountiful and delicious breakfasts on the patio was incredible. We had a totally unexpected bonus on the last morning of our stay...steak and eggs (because we stayed a week) and the other guests were somewhat envious! I can wholeheartedly recommend the original Romar House for anyone visiting the area and although we were unable to visit in 2013, we certainly hope to return in 2014. Thank you Jerry for maintaining this beautiful beachfront property and not allowing a big corporation to destroy this little piece of heaven on earth. Thank you Deborah and Greg for making sure everything was perfect for our stay. Your friends....Tammy and Martha from Nashville

What a wonderful B&B! Deborah and Greg gave us just the right balance of privacy and lively conversation. Room was comfortable and the furnishings and atmosphere fantastic. Grounds were beautiful. The breakfast was superb. We will most definitely be back!

Room Tip: There was no fitness center. The south rooms are the best for the view.

We stay at the Original Romar House every time we come to Orange Beach/Gulf Shores. Wonderful beach house decor. We always meet interesting people. Great common areas. Comfortable beds. Breakfasts are excellent. Deborah and Greg are extremely hospitable. They got up early to cook us breakfast since my husband had to be at a meeting. The covered deck is a great place to enjoy the early AM or the sunset. Inviting pool area. I saw dauphins jumping right out of the water, pellicans, gulls, terns, and a host of dragon flies during this morning's beach walk.

We spent our 41st anniversary at this wonderfully peaceful bed and breakfast. Greg and Deborah are perfect hosts. What a great first time at Orange Beach. The amenities are superb in this wonderful old beach home. Comfortable beds, scrumptious hot breakfasts, wine and cheese each afternoon, inviting swimming pool, hot tub, and great boardwalk leading to practically a private white sandy beach. There are only about 7 rooms, so there are no crowds to fight for deck chairs or a spot by the pool. We spent hours on the beach or in the pool just relaxing. Perfect. Our hosts were helpful with tips for great seafood dinners (Doc's has great raw oysters and fried shrimp) and Greg was so thoughtful to give us some lovely seashells for our granddaughter. We shall definitely return to Orange Beach, and we will book early so that we can have a full week at the Original Romar House B&B. Thank you, Greg and Deborah!
