To me the value is what separates this hotel from the others. ~$200 per night for a guaranteed ocean view. (We searched about 7-10 other hotels). We loved sitting on the balcony. The pool was a nice break for the kids who could get sick of hacking up salt water. The service was great. The breakfast buffet was good. Their omelets (not included in the buffet) were fantastic. The hotel is situated pretty well in Orange Beach.
The parts they could improve on, the AC was annoying. We set it at 60 degrees and it still felt warm. The shower faucet was strange. Maybe it was broken? I don't know. The ice machines were hit and miss at best.
Other notes: If you want a fridge, you have to pay $20 per night. A lounge chair on the beach costs the same.
