I love this hotel
Reviewed 29 november, 2021
First: The hotel lobby area is beautiful. Beach styled and classy. Very well designed. The room was very clean. I did not see any spots on the upholstery or the carpet. I didn't see dust. I appreciated that. The staff I encountered was friendly and hospitable. They made you feel very welcome. I can only comment on the suite which I love how it's laid out. The beach is right outside the hotel door and it was beautiful. Second: The breakfast is good. They often give bacon and sausage during breakfast. A lot of places usually have one or the other. It was always nicely done and presented beautifully. My only complaint would be the eggs. Maybe change up because a bit of an aftertaste when I was there, but then I'm an egg person. Third: This was our 2nd stay and it may become my go-to hotel for Orange Beach.
Great Place to Stay on the Beach

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-night stay with a balcony looking right down on the beach. The view was fantastic - sunrise to the left, sunset to the right, beautiful beach and waves as far as you can see. We could watch birds diving in the water and even some occasional dolphins surfacing. The free buffet breakfast was excellent (better than what we got when we went out to an expensive breakfast place one morning). The lobby/breakfast/bar area on the 4th floor has a nice view of the ocean/beach and an outdoor balcony with seating. Everyone was nice and helpful. Parking was easy inside the parking garage (always got a spot right near the elevator on the 2nd level). The room was comfortable, with a fridge and microwave and TV with premium channels. Everything was clean and in working condition. They didn't have the usual maid service due to virus precautions, but they would switch out any towels, etc. if you mark what you need on a door hanger. We thought the value was great for such an amazing location and view.
Honeymoon trip ruined

If you have a service animal I would not recommend going to this hotel. I have never felt so unwanted and unwelcomed with my service dog before. My husband and I felt like our every move was being watched. The manager upset and and embarrassed me so bad in the lobby that I had a anxiety/ panic attack in the room after I could not calm down or stop crying for a solid 30 min. This is not how your honeymoon should feel. Truly, you should never feel that way.

After a horrible experience at Hilton Pensacola Beach recently, the Tides Best Western OB knows how to treat their customers. Kara was GREAT at check in or if we had questions. Spacious, clean rooms. Great breakfast bar! Will choose it again!
This is the Place to Stay!

We had a great stay here! The staff were friendly and helpful. The staff had a "You are family" vibe to them which is really unique. Only thing was the confusion on the bike rental vs. complimentary bikes and when they would be available for use. Room was very nicely appointed, clean and the bed was comfortable. The pool water was cold and the hot tub was out of service which was unfortunate. The breakfast was excellent! Great hot options such as grits with toppings, oatmeal with toppings, eggs, bacon/sausage, etc. The food set up was nice in that it tended to alleviate the usual congestion. Again, staffing......all breakfast staff were attentive and really seemed to enjoy their job. Superb! It made eating even more enjoyable. Beautiful breakfast seating and surroundings. Parking was easy and convenient. This is the place to stay in Orange Beach/Gulf Shores!
