“Great for a short trip”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My family went to Orange Beach for a short four day trip, and this hotel was the perfect fit for us. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by a very friendly staff that was helpful the whole time we were there. Breakfast was hot and plentiful, rooms were clean and spacious, and the pool area was well kept and very nice for a small hotel. This little hotel was beyond our expectations and made our trip a very memorable one.

Room Tip: If you have small children, you may want to ask for a room on the bottom floor and by the pool. Tho...

Checked into a room that was not ready for customers. After telling the frontdesk I was a platinum member I was upgraded to a beach view room.

Bring your own pillows. The hotel pillows were wornout sacks of loose foam rubber.

Room Tip: You'll want a 3rd floor and above on the beach side of this property.

Look inbetween all those high rise condos and find this jewell. Located on the beach with beautiful landscaping and pools. Exceptionally clean rooms and grounds. Very friendly and courteous staff. All my needs have been met. Also received great suggestions for fun and food.

Room Tip: There is no bad room. I did get a coupon from the visitors center and recieved a reduced rate which...

Gulf shores how we miss you - and what a great location to enjoy it from. The hotel is a moderate hotel - great price for a excellent location! You just walk right past the pool and on to the beach. Every one from the front desk to the cleaning staff .. to the bartender in the bar (thanks Billy - NOLA was awesome based on your suggestions!) were so friendly and kind. We loved our trip so much - we almost considered staying longer and missing out on paid days in New Orleans. We will definitely be back and stay at the HI Express again.

Room Tip: The included breakfast - excellent value. Request beach towels right away since they go fast.

My husband and I stayed over labor day weekend. It was very relaxing.
-Gulf front view was awesome (also overlooked the beautiful pool area).
-not excellent but good customer service!! 4stars! (I asked for a few sets of towels from lobby & they said they woukd tell house keeping, but I guess they forgot). No big deal (luckily someone was always in the room when house keeping came... otherwise we wouldn't have had xtra towels.
-awesome breakfast selection!
-POOR CLEANLINESS. I gave them a 2. (Pull out bed still had sheets from previous stayer, and when we took the sheets out, there was a huge brown stain in the middle of the bed. I'm sorry - but even with good customer service, I can't do dirty rooms. Probably won't ever stay there again.
-ice machine was loud~ we brought our infant and everytime that thing would make ice, it would scare him.
Overall, I rate them a 3.

RESTAURANT - if u do happen to stay around the area, make sure u stop by GULF SHORE STEAMER! they have an awesome basket of fresh steamed seafood (snow crab legs, oysters, shrimp.. etc etc)

Good hotel. Good view. Good service. Pool area is clean and rockin. Kid friendly. Room wasn't as quiet as I would like but, I was beach front rm 618 above the pool. What should I expect? Beach is clean. This place is way nicer than the Hilton I just stayed in in Myrtle Beach.
