    Great location for me. Room was very clean, bed comfortable, microwave and mini fridge, nothing else I needed. It was quiet as well. Didn't get to try the breakfast, so can't comment. Pricey for spring break, but that was my fault. Would stay here again,

    Please note that Gulf Shores and Orange Beach do not permit dogs on beaches at all, and I haven't seen any exemptions for service animals listed. I would contact HI Express to let them know you have a service dog with you... More

    We have a little companion dog and can't seem to find anything pet friendly. She is incredibly house trained and a great little dog, very friendly. Do you know of anything we can find where we can take Mazy, our Yorkie?

    Will there be a shuttle bus to and from The Hangout Music Festival in May from your hotel? If so what type of schedule will it run ? Also do u have to pay extra for frig in room?

    No idea about the shuttle, but the boarding area for the Shrimp Festival shuttle was not far away. Refrigerators are standard in rooms and do not incur an extra charge.
