My husband and two kids (ages 10 and 8) made a weekend getaway to Orange Beach and stayed at the Sleep Inn for the first time. When booking the hotel, I was looking for a place at a reasonable price that was on the beach and clean, period. Sleep Inn was a good choice considering my criteria. We found the hotel clean and it was right on the beach, so my needs were met.
That being said, I will note that the standard rooms are VERY small--we couldn't move in any direction without bumping into each other. We had two double beds in the room. Standard room bathrooms have just a shower and toilet--no bathtub. The sink is just two feet from one of the beds. There was no refrigerator and no microwave in the room, though guests could access a microwave in the breakfast area downstairs if need be. We stayed on the top floor and found the elevators extremely slow. If you stay here, I recommend requesting a room on the second or third floor and plan to take the stairs a lot when you're not moving luggage. It will save you a lot of time. Pool was good. There's no guest laundry, unfortunately. I like to wash the kids' beach towels every day if I can as they get smelly pretty quickly when they've been out at the beach.
However, all in all, I have to say that considering that I got the room at a good price ($135/night in peak season), I will stay here again. I was grateful to find a clean hotel on the beach. My other comments are not intended as complaints--just pointing out a few things that will be important to some travelers. I do recommend staying here if you don't mind a small standard room. I noticed the suites are quite spacious if you don't mind paying more.
