Consistent brand
By Jeremiah13
If you have stayed in a Holiday Inn Express and Suites than you already know what to expect. This particular hotel is consistent to the brand however, the area is far from desirable. Although i did [More] not have any personal encounters concerning safety, I am familiar with the area and it is not located in the best part of town. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The elevator, just one, was very slooooow and the A/C in my room was struggling to keep the temperature comfortable (could of just been my room)... I travel a lot for work and have stayed in several Holiday Inn Express properties and aside from the physical location and elevators this property is consistent with the others. [Less]
overall great
By Tamela45154
Evening Manager that we talk to wonderful helped with all question that we had .Our TV wasn't coming in called an he came an fixed as soon as possible he was alone at the hotel but it wasn't a [More] problem fixed it very fast .only recommendation I have is they should always have two employees at the motel every shift . [Less]
Nice Hotel but a little pricey for a HI Express
By R.L.L
Hotel and staff are nice. Elevator is very sloooooooooow! Breakfast was staffed by one person so most items were out and when replenished were cold. As a Platium Club member I have never had a bad [More] experience at a HI Express breakfast bar until this one. They need to keep at least two people working the breakfast area. [Less]
price

I great place in a crowded location. Given the number of people I was impressed by how well they kept the service level high. The only fault that I can think of is that the a/c was a bit [More] loud. But, everything else was great. [Less]
Great Beach Stay

Nice stay, but needs some updating
By joygulf
This property is in a great area directly on the beach. I cannot comment on the value for your money as I was using my free night from my IHG Rewards credit card PROS: Great location, friendly [More] staff, especially the lady in the breakfast area, the bartender at the pool bar, one housekeeping person, the individual who let us check in early. Pool area is beautiful. Nice very large room with a very comfortable bed and pillows, table, chairs, sofa bed. Received upgrade upon check-in. Balcony with nice gulf view. Microwave and fridge and keurig coffee pot working properly. Nice lobby. Easy check in and out. Toiletries were nice. CONS: Although the bathroom area has two separate rooms which is usually never found outside of a higher end type property, and has two sinks and a large vanity, the toilet and bath/shower area was TINY !!!!! To use the restroom, one has to squeeze up against the tub/shower to shut the door which must only clear the edge of the toilet by a millimeter. So, we just shut the outside door - much easier, but this negates the asset of having two sinks and a large vanity - two people cannot get ready at the same time. Also, the fixtures in the bathroom were VERY OUTDATED. The tub did not drain properly - one was left standing in ankle deep water, even if you turned the water on and off to try and cut down on the amount of water backing up. The pool area is lovely, but the handouts said that it closed at 10 pm. It didn't. Even tho' we were on the second floor with a balcony, the noise didn't bother us, but might have bothered others. The carpeting is pretty shabby and needs updating as well in the rooms. Lastly, given the amount of guests there during tourist season, there is not enough seating room at breakfast, although the staff DID open up the meeting room area for the overflow. I do not mean to focus on the "cons" as I see this paragraph is longer, but I felt that some things need to be addressed. However, it is a nice property for a family outing to the beach, pool, vacation. [Less]
Everything you want in a beach resort!
By DoctorChubby
We arrived a couple of hours early to the hotel, so we thought we would walk around the pool area and down to the beach. I stopped at the desk to take my chances and see if the room was ready. To [More] my surprise, the friendly staff member at the desk was able to get us into our room much earlier than expected. After getting our luggage to the room, we spent some time at the bi-level pool, where the water was the perfect temperature. The poolside bartender was hard at work creating a variety of mixed drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic) as well as a nice selection of snacks (nachos, hotdogs, etc.) for thirsty guests around him. I don't carry cash if I can help it, so it's nice that he allowed us to charge anything we wanted to our room. After a few more hours at the pool, we decided to venture out to get dinner. Just within walking distance, there are dozens of local restaurants as well as grocery and drug stores. Everything we could possibly need was a stone's throw away. The room met and exceeded a very tough criteria that I use to judge the comfort of my stay. The Air Conditioning seemingly being the toughest to please me everywhere I stay; this one was perfect! I set it as low as I could while we were in the room, and it kept the room cool and comfortable throughout our stay. The water pressure in the shower also exceeded expectations. It was so great, that it was easy to make up excuses to take more showers than any normal person should take in a day. Finally, the room featured one last thing that made it number one in my book....blackout curtains. Traveling with a two year old isn't the easiest thing in the world. Much less if you have to put him/her down for a nap in the middle of the day at the beach, with all kinds of sunlight shining through. The blackout curtains in this room made nap time exponentially easier than anywhere else I've ever been. My wife was able to enjoy some time down at the beach alone, while I got to enjoy some television in my perfectly darkened, wonderfully chilled room. There isn't really anything bad to say about the stay except it could have been longer. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and engaged in very natural conversations with us. It was much more pleasant than the forced, awkward, canned questions and responses you get at other places. It was genuinely one of the best all around vacations I can remember having, and we owe it the the Holiday Inn Express in Orange Beach. [Less]
