“BEST BEACH PLACE”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

This was my 3rd time back! I love it there. It makes me feel like I'm at the beach. I'm extremely cautious with hotels! I always read a review, and that's why I'm giving this place a 5! Thank you to the nice Bell Hop, he even offered to fill out cooler up with ice! We checked out and went to the beach our last day, and that's when he offered to take our cooler inside for us for ice! He was so nice. We love the beach area because unlike the Condo's it is not overcrowded. Everyone had space! We had our own sand chair so we were right in the edge if the water. The Island House is walking distance from The Shrimp Basket. We went there 3 out of 4 nights. We love it there and hope to go back before Winter!

We stayed at the Island House Hotel in July and had an awesome vacation. Front desk staff, bell hop, housekeeping, restuarant staff, absolutely everyone, was super friendly and helpful in every way. Holly, a waitress in the restuarant, even took the time to remember our grandkids names and made them feel special every time we saw her. The hotel, and our room, was clean and we were even offered extra towels by housekeeping one rainy afternoon. Even our balcony was clean! Our beds and pillows were super comfortable and the hotel has in-room safes. This is a family friendly hotel but also good for couples. The bartender makes some wonderfully delicious adult fruity drinks which are great for sipping by the pool. We loved this place and would definately stay here again.

We have been going to the Island House for at least 15 years! It is a great size(not too big - not too small) with every room having an ocean front view! It is very family oriented but also romantic for couples.The staff is amazing! And don't forget to have breakfast in the lovely restaurant! We wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else on the Alabama Coast!

Room Tip: If you can get an upper floor, the view is simply amazing!

The Island House is a great hotel for the price. Located directly on the beach, it has the lowest price of any surrounding hotels. All of the rooms have an ocean view. We stayed on an upper view and had a beautiful unobstructed view. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The bed could have been a bit more comfortable, but I have slept on much worse. The hotel employees are very friendly and very helpful. I would happily stay here again. My only wish is that the on-site restaurant would stay open longer. It closes at 4pm and it would be very nice if it was open for dinner.

The Island House. Where do I begin? The Island House is a nice hotel. There's nothing wrong with it. It's on the beach, which is nice, but a lot of rooms have their views blocked by palm trees. I stayed on the second floor, causing this to happen to me. The Island House has a pool, which is nice, but they have a weird rope thing blocking the middle. I don't understand this. The beach is nice. They have chairs available for 25 dollars a day, which have umbrellas. I liked this. The elevators need to be a little faster, but they work fine. The front desk was nice and helpful, checkin was fast, and the porter helped us with our luggage and didn't expect a tip, though I have him one. I do think it would be nice for both the guests and the management if the hotel room doors had key cards instead of actual keys. If someone lost their key, it would cost management or the guest anything to replace the key except a few cents for the card. The vending machines are nice, though the ice makers were broken. There aren't refrigerators or microwaves in the room, which was a downside. They have a restraunt, but its overpriced. I liked the Island House, but its nothing special.

We love this hotel. My husband and I stayed in February and I'm currently here with our son and my parents. The staff are super nice. Rooms are clean with great views and comfortable beds. Beautiful beach to look at on your own private balcony.

Just went for the 2nd time...July 25-29 and we love it here. I love the fact that all rooms are gulf front. Ice machine worked well and we were always able to fill our large ice chest at any time of day. front desk staff is excellent and polite. I had asked for a high floor before we got there, i like to dolphin watch in the early mornings...got the 9th floor, amazing view. Lobby is always neat and clean with plenty of seating and books/puzzles for you to read or kids to do. Pool area was always clean and was quiet..never heard much noise, especially at night. We went to the beach every day and it was never crowded in the area right behind the hotel. Rooms are always neat, clean and tidy...bed was a little uncomfortable in our particular room, but we made it. Plenty of pillows if you like lots of pillows to prop on. Tv was nice, love the 2 sinks...while hubby was steaming up the bathroom with his shower, i was at the other sink getting ready. Never ran out of hot water, plenty of towels etc....love the room safe and love the fact that you get a real key for your door. We just returned from Vegas in March and we had the card...took us up to 60 tries to get that door open...even after reporting it to the front desk and they said maintenance came and fixed it. We will be coming back here for all of our stays, LOVE IT! Thanks for another great stay Island House!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor if you like the water view from above
