Fairfield Inn & Suites Orange Beach

Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

I reserved a room from tripadvisor guidance. Picked a basic king non smoking room. Received a handicapped accessible room without being advised at checkin. In the bathroom a used washcloth was still in the shower and trash (box for cough syrup) was in the trash. Bed was made and other trash emptied though. So that was odd. Room had towels but only 2 large towels. I have long hair and usually use two myself instead of the smaller towel. There was no hair dryer! I've never been to a hotel with no hair dryer. Couple that with lack of large towels and you have an inconvenience. So overall just a weird experience. We left early in the am for a fishing trip so no breakfast review.

Upon arrival the front desk staff were extremely friendly, willing to offer suggestions, and happy to suggest the options of getting to the beach. Once I entered the room, I was very disappointed with the smell of the room. The air had not been circulating and it left a mildew smell. The room was clean otherwise.
As for beach access, I chose to drive to a state park area 1/4 mile away and did not regret my decision as the staff had explained that they would carry me to a busy road, but not to the beach.
In the future I would probably stay at comparable beachfront hotels nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

booked hotel for 42 family members and friends for a great weekend. This was a great place to stay. Everything was awesome. Breakfast standard continental, but good. Hotel is right across from the beach, and the staff was nice and friendly. The pool was.nice. The rooms were clean and I look forward to going back.

Friendly staff, attentive to guests, great breakfast in the mornings. Comfortable beds with lots of pillows...ahhhh!
The beach access is across the street, which is a close enough walk or they have a golf cart shuttle service.
This is a great, comfortable hotel, close enough to the beach!

Room Tip: Ask for even numbered room, so you can view the pool and the adorable pond in the back.

My husband, two children and I stayed at this hotel. The staff go above and beyond to help you. We called because a sliding door to the balcony was getting stuck. We did not ask them to fix it, we just wanted them to know it wasn't us who broke the door. : ) They call right back and had a maintenance worker come to look at it. He said someone had probablly kicked it and it would take him a few hours to fix so they were willing to put us in a new room. No questions asked.
The cooking, housekeeping, maintenance and front desk staff were VERY FRIENDLY. Everyone said hello and were asking us how our vacation was going. Clean rooms and lots of extra towels, all you have to do is ask.
There is a Publix and a small grocery Wal-Mart nearby. There is also a pizza place and subway close by. They have a great hot complimentary breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay here very much and would come back again. If you can, request a room in the back of the hotel by the pool and lake, the balconies are bigger.

The area was nice. We were walking distance from the beach. The rooms were rather small for the price we paid but clean. Not many food choices surrounding the hotel. You had to drive a few miles to get better food choices. Otherwise, my husband and I would visit again.

we originally wanted to stay right on the beach. After reading mostly not so positive reviews on other properties we chose the Fairfield. We were pleasantly surprised. Very clean, good hot breakfast. Golf cart to take you close to beach access. Not cheap on clean towels. We were happy to see more than enough clean towels when we returned to the room.
