“Fabulous Stay!”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We had the best experience with customer service from the staff and management. For a small extra fee you can guarantee a room fronting the beach when making your reservations and it is so worth it. Extremely clean, comfortable and by all means, don't miss Bubba's across the street for the best seafood I've had in a long time. The breakfast was good and the staff did every thing they could to make sure everyone was happy and didn't want for anything.
There was a microwave, small fridge and table to sit. It was storming a lot when we were there, but the pools were constantly be checked on to clean, and there is a walk up bar.
If you leave here unhappy, chances are you wouldn't have had a good time anywhere. Make sure you tell Kendall (the manager) if something does go wrong because this staff is awesome and one bad experience shouldn't ruin it for all the others who work so hard to make sure your vacation was everything you dreamed of.!! We did meet one such lady, but gladly we had limited dealings with her. I'm can't think of any reason whatsoever that makes me think I should look for another place to stay next time.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room facing the Gulf. best $30 spent the whole trip!

Our family spent 2 nights here while traveling back from house hunting. The location is right on the beach. This was so convenient to just stroll to the waters edge. The 2 pools with a poolside bar makes you feel like you are at a resort. However the best part is the staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The first night a group of rowdy partiers came into the room next to us around midnight. After 40 minutes, I called the front desk. Within 2 minutes the manager came up to their room and shut them down. The next day our air conditioner wasn't cooling. I called down and in 10 minutes they were wheeling in a new one. While they put it in we got all the 411 on the best restaurants to eat at. With staff like that, you can really relax. We will go there during our next visit!

This hotel is on the beach, has a great pool and beach access as well as a pretty good variety for a free continental breakfast. They also have a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms. Staff was super friendly, very nice place to stay. We would definitely stay again next time were in orange beach.

The last time I stayed here 6 months ago was my first trip to Orange Beach. We loved the hotel so much we chose it again this trip. The lady at the front desk "Dee" was very very nice and helpful. I really can't say the same thing about the other lady. We arrived at 2:00 and check in is 4:00. She was not very nice telling us that we would have to wait. We checked back at 3:30 but she told us again we would have to wait and we did.. til 4:00 on the dot. Otherwise, great hotel, great breakfast, great pool.. exceptional.

Room Tip: 4th floor both times were great.. away from elevator.. nice rooms.

Hi Drifter201,

Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know how your stay was with us. It is so great to hear that you had a great time with us on Easter weekend, with the exception of not being able to check in to your room early. I will speak with our front desk staff to ensure we are always being courteous to every guest and that we are doing our best to get everyone checked in in a timely manner. We hope you come back to see us again soon.

What a great property! Right on the beautiful beach. We stayed here for three nights.

We had two rooms, located across the hall from each other. The rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were so comfortable. Bathroom was clean and had nice towels. The room fridge and microwave were very convenient.

The free breakfast was very good. There was a machine to make your own pancakes. The selection of hot and cold foods was great. The seating could get a bit crowded at peak breakfast times, but people don't linger so there really wasn't an issue.

The pool and hot tub area is very nice. We had about 4 inches of rain one night, so the pool never really got too warm. The hot tub was great. We did take advantage of the poolside bar while relaxing in the sun. Pool towels are available at the bar - but there weren't any signs that we noticed about this.

We used the laundry facilities in this hotel - clean machines.

Front desk staff was quick to resolve an issue we had with the very loud people in the room next door. I can't thank the night manager, Summer, enough for her efforts.

The location of this hotel is convenient to restaurants and shops.

We will definitely stay at this property again when our travels take us back to the Alabama coast.

Just returned home from a peaceful vacation at the Holiday Inn Expressed at Orange Beach Alabama. This is a very nice place to stay. Very clean, family friendly, and relaxing place. I would recommend this place if you want a low key peaceful get away.

We stayed a couple of nights at this hotel after finding a coupon for it in a travel guide. By far the best hotel we stayed at during our spring break. Friendly staff, clean rooms, great location, wonderful breakfast and just an overall wonderful experience! Not to mention the price was great! We will definetly be staying there on our next vacation to Orange beach.
