Reviewed May 22, 2014

For the price, this is a great value. Came in for a one night business meeting and paid about half of what the nearby Hampton and other similar hotels would have cost. The rooms were definitely good enough and I heard they were about to update all of their furnishings by the end of the year. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Biggest complain was the air conditioner not having the stay on all night option...

My girlfriend and I stayed here one night on a long weekend trip to the Gulf. While the room was small compared to what I'm used to, we found everything clean amd tidy. The only issue was with a faulty bathroom door that wouldn't close all the way. That would definitely had been an issue if I was staying with someone other than my sister like best friend. The staff was helpful and courteous. We love the fact that the beach access was so convenient.

Sleep Inn Orange Beach was not a good experience. It is very unclean and the internet/cable went down multiple times during my visit. The hotel was not clean and had a lot of dirt in the elevator, hallways, and lobby. The breakfast was horrible. The showers are tiny. The walls and doors are paper thin and the smell of weed is very strong in the hallways. They advertise to be a beachfront hotel, but there are very few rooms that are actually looking onto the beach. There are very tiny side patios that are blocked by a side building elevator. The only positive that I can say is that the location is great! Definitely will not stay again.

My wife and I just returned from a few days In Orange Beach, AL. We stayed at the Sleep Inn right on the white sand beach. The room was quite comfortable and the staff was great. They gave us a room on the top floor with a view that was fantastic. They had a nice variety of items at breakfast and they were fresh and tasty. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice, clean and quiet place to stay in Orange Beach.

Room Tip: Rooms at the beach end and on the higher floors give the best view if you are not in the beachfront...

We have made over a dozen trips to the Gulf Coast beaches. While overall a "good" stay, first the negatives: at $183.50 per night for a non-beachfront room and an 18" balcony too small to set a chair on, one expects a bathroom at least large enough not to require a pocket-door (and with a shower that does not resemble the plastic insert in an RV). The carpet in the hallway on the ground floor smelled of mildew, as it did on the sixth floor. Another reviewer mentioned questions about the safety of the elevator--they do noticeably shudder and groan (more noticeable in the one in the back of the building), but it was not so bad that we didn't use it. Humorously, the elevator inspection certificates are not displayed on the elevators. Housekeeping is loud in the hallways beginning around 8:30 and will knock incessantly on your door by 8:45 a.m. (came back three times one morning) if you do not hang the Do Not Disturb sign, or if it goes missing, even if you are there for a multiple night stay. On the positive side, Sleep Inn's front desk personnel were friendly, and the room, though in an older hotel and cramped for space, was clean. The bed was comfortable, the walls and doors minimized noise from other guests. In other pluses: the beach is clean and accessible, the hotel will provide towels for the pool if needed, the chair rental guy on the beach is friendly and affordable, and parking was adequate for the crowd on an April weekend. Overall a "Good" stay, but not worthy of a "Very Good". (It would earn a C+ in a good school, but not a B-.) We've had true beachfront walk outs with more amenities at lower prices on the Florida Panhandle even "in season".

Room Tip: There are only 25-30 beachfront rooms in the hotel. We heard others checking in who were certain th...

We got room 616, which is called a non-ocean view. We had a great view. The balcony is enough to stand on. The AC didn't work great in our room, but it was April, so it worked well enough for our stay. I don't think the ocean view rooms, unless you're above the 2nd floor would be worth the extra $, because you are looking right onto the pool area, and everyone out there could be looking in. We had a bit of noise before bedtime and in the morning from what was probably the ice machine, but we had a decent night's sleep. We could feel the springs in the mattress a bit. The pocket door to the bathroom was not an issue for us. great space-saver. if you've never used a pocket door, you haven't lived long enough. lol. We skipped breakfast because we had such a big dinner the night before at the Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores (delicious!), which was fine, because it looked pretty busy in the breakfast area. The room is a bit worn, but anything by the beach gets pretty battered. We enjoyed the location. Plenty of shopping nearby.

Room Tip: east side above third floor has best view if you don't want to pay from "ocean view"...

We recently stayed here for spring break with the kids. We stayed here 4 nights. It averaged out to around $100 a night. Overall, we enjoyed the stay and it was very affordable. The hotel had great beach access and views. The morning breakfast was good, too. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The only bad things I would say is that the rooms are small and the elevators are SCARY. The elevators pull, jerk, and squeak and squeal real bad.

Room Tip: Side rooms have good view of ocean, too.
