Birmingham, Alabama
Reviewed 22 November 2016

We stay here at least twice a year and have never been disappointed. This time was no exception.......outstanding! Our room had just been updated to include modern walk in shower, new flooring and fixtures. The staff is always friendly and helpful and there is not much turnover since the Island House is locally owned.

Very nice location and really friendly staff. All rooms face the ocean, so the view is great and the waves can be heard from the private balconies so it's quite peaceful. Little bit of noise can be heard from other rooms but nothing too bad.

Thank you for your review. We do have 4 luggage carts and they are available for self-service or Bell Service. Sometimes others keep the carts in their rooms during their stay which makes their availability limited. We will be adding more carts for next season, hope to see you again!

I feel this room was falsely advertised. Beachfront Balcony Had No view. We were right on top of smokers pavilion and right above bar. Could sit on the balcony and watch the ocean because the trees blocked the view and smoke from the pavilion come right at you. Inside all you could here was the bar below

We're sorry that you were unhappy with your stay - we'll work hard to fix the issue you noted. We are in renovation currently and will be removing all Palm Trees that are blocking views as well as eliminating the smoking area.

Reviewed 10 November 2016

With the new renovations to this hotel, we were expecting a really nice room. The TV was not high definition and had a fuzzy picture. The walls were so thin you could hear everything from the rooms next door. The staff were all very nice and accommodating, but the facilities were a disappointment.

Our family of four got the executive corner room on the 7th floor.... Something we usually don't do. My kids were in awe of the beautiful room and the views were fabulous. Everything was clean. Staff was friendly. We had 0 complaints. Thank you for a great experience!!

The staff was immediately hilarious and very welcoming, although the hotel was booked full each staff member we encountered took the time to help us any way possible. Our room exceeded our expectations and the view was breath taking! The breakfast was delicious! We will definitely be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Island House Hotel is well-known for providing an atmosphere that is both distinctive and uncommon; your family vacation, a relaxing getaway, your special event, reunion, or corporate event will feel exceptional. Every room in our hotel is Gulf Front and offers views of our beautiful turquoise waters, waving green and yellow sea oats and our famous sugar-white sands. Each of our beachfront rooms provides personal balconies and newly-renovated amenities that will make your stay feel perfect. The Hotel is nestled directly on 336 feet of beachfront, just a few steps away from the spot to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Gulf. Cushioned loungers with umbrellas are offered in front of the property, and a boardwalk from the pool takes you a few feet from the water. Located near Alabama Point and Perdido Pass, our beach-side hotel rests at the main bay where the Intracoastal Waterway meets the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf’s largest charter boat fishing fleet, many sailboats, yachts and recreational watercraft set sail right before our eyes each day. Most importantly, our culture of customer service, attention to detail, location and amenities make a great combination for the perfect stay for work or play. Come see why The Island House Hotel is a favorite beach spot in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach and is considered one of the jewels of the Gulf Coast ... more   less
