This was the cheapest rate at Orange Beach for a beach front room with a balcony. The room was $139 a night for a king bed. It was a good view on the 5th floor of the beach. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful with assisting the guests.
The bed was surprisingly comfortable. The furnishings were in good shape. There was a fridge that was not listed on the hotel website which was very helpful. The bathroom was pretty small with a sliding door that went into the wall and had no handle on it to be able to grab it with. The shower was nice though. It was roomy and had a really nice water control setup that let you set the temperature so all you had to do was turn in on and it was the same water temp as when you used it last.
The walk down to the water was only a couple of minutes. So carrying our beach gear was fairly easy. The pool set up was pretty nice and clean and had good handicapped facilities.
There were repairs in the room that were very shoddy and a curtain rod that had been poorly hung fell down anytime we tried to open the curtain. There were only 3 ice machines in the hotel and one of them was broken. The continental breakfast was not impressive. One side of the toaster was broken. The menu was the same every day. Little things like keeping the butter packets in the fridge instead of on the counter so they would have been soft for spreading, and the pastries were dry and stale.
Overall I got what I paid for in that area. As a solo trip I would have stayed there again but not with my wife along. I was not impressed with the maintenance up keep on the room.
