We just returned from a long weekend in Orange Beach, Al, where we stayed at Escapes. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath with balcony facing the beach, and we loved it. It was a corner unit (#1501) and it was very large. Each bedroom has a king bed with its own bathroom, and there was a washer and dryer in the unit. The living room was very large and spacious looking out the sliding glass doors and windows to the balcony and gulf. When we were not on the balcony, we were sitting on the sofa with doors open listening to the waves. The bedrooms did not have views or doors opening to a balcony, but they were very nice rooms. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals even tho we only ate breakfast and lunch in the room.
The location was very convenient to grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants. In fact, it is directly across the street from Wintzell's Oyster House which has good food. There was an indoor and outdoor pool, hot tub, children's wading pool, gazebo, grills around pool, steam and saunas, and very nice workout room. Great beach access with boardwalk from the pool area.
We were impressed with the level of housekeeping done at Escapes. When we arrived a little early for check-in, we were told which unit we would have but that the final inspection had not been done after the unit was clean. We were in no hurry, so we waited for the inspection to be done. In fact, we walked up to the unit to just peek in and they were making the inspection and final touches. The housekeeping ladies were so friendly and told us to let them know if anything at all was amiss and they would return to rectify. Really smooth check-in, great customer service, parking garage had enough spaces so you did not have to fight for a spot. They also provide luggage dollies from parking garage area to your room.
Cleanliness and quiet are high on my list of priorities, and this location was a 10 (scale of 1-10)
Earlier this year I stayed at an Escapes in Galveston, TX, and was equally pleased with my experience. I would definitely recommend Escapes! to the Shores at Orange Beach and other Escapes locations.
