The Hotel was great, right on the beach. Great staff. My only complaint is that both nights local people came to use the hot tub and it was different people each night. From the conversation they do this all the time. The even left a mess of beer cans in the shrubs, and their trash.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mandjs25 Great place to stay!
We enjoyed our stay due to the extremely courteous staff and clean, neat rooms. The breakfast was really good too. The ONLY negative we found was that the elevators are really slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ravens/Saints Fan Awesome Staff!!
The staff at this hotel is awesome. Everyone I encountered from the front desk to the grounds and cleaning crew was so friendly. Billy, the bartender at the pool bar is so much fun and knowledgable about any kind of drink you want. He also has a special "bacon infused" vodka that people come from other hotels to taste! We also enjoyed talking with and getting to know James who I believe is part of the grounds/maintenance crew. The pool is great and the breakfast in the morning is so nice and clean. Really enjoyed the pancake maker! Overall we had an awesome time here and will definitely be back!

We stayed here for the Hangout Festival this year and had an awesome experience. Breakfast was always fresh and served until 9:30. The staff was awesome and extremely friendly. The pool was nice as well. Beds were average... Nothing worth complaining about! Overall, a wonderful stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jboyd Nice place
Went there for our honeymoon really enjoyed the stay except I had an emergency and needed to leave a day earlier than expected. When I asked the front desk on Monday if I could check out on Friday instead of Saturday and get refunded they said there was nothing they could do since it was paid in advance.... I just figured since I gave them a 4 days in advance notice that they could rebook that room especially since it was a weekend.

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn at Orange Beach numerous times. Always a pleasant experience. The staff greets me with a smile and warm welcome. I noticed there were improvements this time. The floors were tile instead of carpet. The elevators were updated as well. Overall a great experience. After all, there is no such thing as a bad day at the beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HodeDo Super Service, Very comfortable!
We checked in April 22nd and were very impressed with the service and comfortable beds and pillows. The breakfast area was maintained and refilled promptly, the best breakfast we have ever experienced in a hotel! Housekeeping was very prompt and courteous, the staff were all very respectful and considerate. We enjoyed the balcony in the evenings with the quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The pool was very cold the first day, not enjoyable but we found out the heater was replaced and spent a lot of time in there the next day and remainder of our stay. The fellow working in the poolside bar even brought popsicles to all of the children in and around the pool!! We were very impressed with this tropical paradise right here in the US!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ronko1 Great Staff - So So Facility
Our family stayed six nights at this hotel and while we love the ocean front property, the facility is showing its age. The ice machine directly outside our door sounded like a diesel truck and ran non-stop. The "heated" outdoor pool was freezing cold which discouraged its use. The bathroom was clean but out dated.
However, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our requests were handled quickly and efficiently. We received follow up phone calls making sure our needs were met. The breakfast area was small and very crowded, but the staff did a good job with what they had.
The oceanfront property, friendly staff and reasonable rates made our stay tolerable, but next time we visit Orange Beach, I'll be checking around for an updated location.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by T-Lou Weekend Getaway
The front desk has an extremely friendly young lady, really wish I had caught her name. The housekeeping staff had the hallway completely blocked. Seriously, you had to push carts out of the way to get to the elevator, while they watched. They also made fun of the guests complaining about the situation after the guests got on the elevator. I stay at Holiday Inn very often for business, this was the smallest room I have ever been in. I know you can't make the room bigger but maybe some thought should go into choosing furnishings that take up less room. I know this was an awesome location, but it was expensive for what was offered. Also for some reason we could not get the heat/AC to work right, either freezing or too hot. Pretty disappointed, first time I' very ever said that about any IHG facility. Dining room staff did a good job of keeping up with a packed house for breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul 51 I recomment this one
Awesome breakfast. Also, it is obvious the manager asks all employees to be friendly to the guests- staff was overall very courteous.
One small issue- the telephone answering and messaging on the room phone was funky and not user friendly. The prompts were kind of wierd. All you need is a simple " you have a message" and not all the other prompts.
Location A plus- right on beach.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sophie01 Lost item
My husband and I checked into your establishment overnight until we could get into our condo. I called the next day after we checked out because I had left a favorite shirt in the closet. I was told that when an item is found it is packaged up, room # is written on bag until it can be sent. I never received a follow-up call or any info concerning my shirt. It would have been nice to hear an apology or something.

This was one of the nicest and cleanest Holiday Inns we have stayed at. The price, staff, breakfast, location, bar, and pool are were great! When we go back to Orange Beach we will be staying there again. I was really impressed with the hotel over all. Because of the great stay there we only stayed at Holiday Inns for the rest of our trip.

We were very impressed with the staff at the front desk. They were very friendly, helpful and cheerful.
The weather was not good at times, but we still enjoyed our stay in the room with the balcony. It was a great opportunity to relax and read on the balcony or in the room.
Beautiful beach. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked an extra day since the forecast was for a sunny day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Christine933 Friendly, comfortable but a couple of problems
Check in was efficient, staff very friendly, and provided all the information one might need. Room was tidy, quiet and bed comfortable. A nice room.
Because of health issues I have to find a room with a microwave and refrigerator when I travel, which is partly why I booked at this hotel. However, I was concerned that there was a large piece of loose ice in the refrigerator when we arrived. We removed the ice. The next morning the refrigerator did not seem to have kept things very cold -- then I discovered it was not even plugged into the wall.
I can understand that maybe someone was going to defrost it and got distracted??? but then we found a little blue tablet on the carpet next to the bed -- presumably from the previous residents -- which made me wonder if housekeeping was really doing its best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by B & D Would stay here again....very accomodating
We had reservations for this hotel for a week. Upon arriving, after getting into our room, our wifi would not work. I went down to the desk several times, and my laptop would work down there, but not in our room. Our phone also was not working. Zach was the manager that night. He came up to our room and also tried to help us....wifi would not work. He said he would give us a different room. I asked that we wait until morning because we had traveled al day, and just got unpacked. A while later, he knocked on the door, and informed us that he would change us to a ocean view room in the morning, for our inconvenience. Wow...didn't expect that. They did, just that , the next morning. Everyone at the desk was more than helpful. The breakfast was awesome...best we have ever had at a hotel. Free coffee 24 hours. Nice exercise room. One might my husband was looking for some margarine/butter. Another young man asked if he could help us...we said..."no never ,mind..no big deal". He insisted he would get us some...he chased us down the hall with some butter. The staff could not be nicer. Beds were comfy, clean. IF I had one negative, it would be the rate e didn't know that we could have gotten a much better deal by the month...rather than a week or two.

Very friendly nice clean place to stay right on the beach. We were there for the great ice storm of the century. All the stall were incredibly nice. Michelle of the breakfast bar works steady and tirelessly. She is a huge asset to the hotel. Front desk was very helpful to find us restaurants and great things to see. Hot tub was amazing. The only issue was that it says pool is heated, but there was no way it was heated. never were able to go into pool.
