I came here on vacation with my daughter, and I can say it was an all around pleasant experience.
The location is ideal. It's just a short walk to the beach, and you do not have to cross any roads. The pool was great, and everything was clean and well kept. The room was clean, and housekeeping did a great job of accommodating everyone's schedule. On some days, it seemed like we were only down at the beach for a couple of hours, and they managed to clean the room in the short period of time we were gone. Also, breakfast is complementary, and the quality of the breakfast was great. It was standard continental fare: waffles, sausage, boiled eggs, yogurt, bagels, muffins, cereal, etc.
The less than ideal:
The rooms are a little small, so for a family of four, it would be a tight fit. Also, there are no bathtubs, only showers. That was not really an issue for us since we didn't mind taking showers, but it might be for some. The number of rooms with a beach / ocean view is very limited. Again, that was not much of an issue for us since we did not spend a lot of time in the room, but if it is an issue for you, you might want to book well in advance to ensure you get one. Finally, the breakfast area was a bit limited in size for the number of people staying there. We sometimes felt like we were crawling over each other, and the wait for the waffle irons was long. Also, seating is limited, so you may not be able to eat in the breakfast area.
Overall, the good outweighed the not so good, and I would definitely consider staying here again for my next trip to Orange Beach.
