Why get a condo when you don't need one? Great location with fabulous views! Breakfast in the restaurant was delicious and service was wonderful! The entire staff was courteous and helpful! Can't wait to see the complete renovations next year!

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! More

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
