Historical Traveler Reviews The Island House Hotel Orange Beach
Perfect Family Hotel
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. We booked with this hotel with no prior knowledge of the hotel or location. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The food at the restaurant was great as well as affordable. We at breakfast there every morning. It never cost a family of 3 over $20. We had a problem with the drain in our room and it was fixed within an hour. The staff was wonderful, the view from our room and the pool was great.
My only suggestion to them would be to have a hot tub in the pool area.
Also, the kiddie pool is not heated so no kids were in it. Too cold.
Clean, Very Nice view, great staff and Price
We spent 3 great nights in April at this hotel. Everything about this place is great. Every room has a private balcony facing the beach. You will be glad you stayed here.
Very nice hotel
We stayed at the Island house Valentine's day weekend,and enjoyed our accomodations very much.Room was very clean and comfortable,staff was excellent,and having a private balcony facing the gulf was very nice.If your going to Orange Beach for a short stay,Island House would be a good choice.
Great Place to Stay
I stayed here for a couple days for Spring Break. It was a great place to stay because of the location. The rooms were clean and the staff were all nice. All of the rooms also face the ocean which was really nice. If I ever go back to Orange Beach, I will want to stay here again.
Clean rooms and great staff
We just got back from Orange Beach and we stayed at the Island House Hotel. The rooms were clean and the staff was courteous and very professional. The hotel is right on the beach and all the rooms have a balcony facing the gulf. We had a very enjoyable time and would not hesitate to stay at the Island House again. If you go to Gulf Shores, be sure to stop at Foley for the shopping an eat at Lamberts. We waited 2 hours to be seated so get there early but it was worth it.
My daughter, her two friends, and I stayed at The Island House this past weekend August 1-3. The hotel is right on the beach and all rooms have a balcony with chairs and a little table. Our room was clean and the employees of the hotel were very courteous and professional. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Great Place To Stay & Relax
The Island House Hotel in Orange Beach, AL is a very nice place to stay and relax for a weekend. The rooms were nice and clean, great balconies to look at the ocean(wish they had a little nicer deck furniture). The Beach chair service was great, along with the restaurant. Front desk was very fast on check-in and check-out, staff was very friendly. My only complaint was the ice machines were out of ice about 50% of the time, and I had to go from floor to floor trying to find one that had ice, and the stairwells smelled like smoke because employees were down on the bottom floor taking smokebreaks, other that that it was a great hotel experience.
Great Place to stay
The Island House is a great place to stay. We were on the third floor directly over looking the pool, which was a great place to sit and watch the granddaughter swim. The room and service was great. Why pay condo fees, when you have this nice hotel to stay in.
Highly recommend the Island House Hotel
Recently we stayed at the hotel and totally enjoyed the furnishings, the gulf views, and the condition of the rooms. I recommend either the east or west end location, enabling an individual the advantage to look way down the opposite end of the beach. Also, a pleasant surprise was the lack of school age kids during spring break. And not having to pay the cleaning fee at a condo, which for a short stay really adds to the final bill.
Relaxing and a great beach!
Island House Hotel is set up in a way in which ALL rooms have an oceanview from the balconies! The standard rooms have two huge queensize beds and are quite spacious. Quiet & relaxing atmosphere. The beach is so wide and the sand is clean, white and very fine! Feels great on the feet! One last thing, they make the Best omelettes in their restaurant! I recommend the mushroom and bacon omelette! Yummy! Had a very nice time there! Time just stopped for us there!

The Feast of Tabernacles has come and gone, along with the Last Great Day. It's marvelous to think of what it all pictures and to dream of what's to come. How wonderful it is to know that we have a Creator who has our best intentions in mind, and keeps His promises.

... One other interesting tidbit from the Fort Morgan museum: there was a display of menus from holidays at the fort, when they tried to built the soldiers' morale. On the July 4 menu for 1912, the beverages on offer were: lemonade, iced tea, and Budweiser. Who knew?
