Lodging at the Beach, Some New and Some Still True to Your Heart

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission

With so many action-packed athletic events, games, festivals and more — it’s easy to forget how relaxing Gulf Shores and Orange Beach can be when your schedule isn’t completely packed with adrenaline-filled excitement! Gulf Shores and Orange Beach sports might tire you out during the day. In that case, your nightlife wouldn’t be complete without a comfortable place to lay your head.


The Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission is grateful to work with top-notch hospitality providers, who look forward to hosting your family or sports team on your travels. Today, we’re featuring some tried and true companies, as well as some new and exciting additions to our area over the last few years.


Phoenix Orange Beach - Image 1


Phoenix Orange Beach is a Brett/Robinson Vacation Rentals condominium. This beachfront property opened in late 2018 and has everything you need in a beachfront condominium including tennis courts, a lazy river, exercise room, outdoor pool, heated indoor pool and hot tubs.

Many visitors prefer unique properties like The Lodge at Gulf State Park, a Hilton hotel, that also opened in late 2018. Its distinct eco-friendly attributes are designed to top-tier international building standards and is a benchmark in sustainability for the Alabama Gulf Coast. The Lodge’s location inside the 6,150-acre Gulf State Park is also something special. Learn more about The Lodge’s ecotourism tenants on their website.


Another newer option is Hotel Indigo, an upscale boutique hotel located on the outskirts of Gulf State Park. The Hotel Indigo brand is worldwide with each location featuring distinct characteristics specific to the area’s geography and culture. Bonus, for those of you fond of espresso beans, Hotel Indigo features locally-owned coffee shop The Southern Grind, where you can get a variety of foods, desserts and even nitro coffee.


Perdido Beach Resort - Orange Beach



If you’re looking for an all-in-one option, Perdido Beach Resort is a full-service hotel and beach resort with recreational options available on-site. It was built in 1987 and was recently renovated. Rooms come standard with brilliant views of the Perdido Pass and the added convenience of five different eateries on site, including the five-star restaurant Voyagers, Perdido Beach Pizza Co. and the poolside Splash Bar & Grille. Many busy parents and focused athletes love the option of having multiple places nearby to grab food without having to leave the property. After all, it’s their vacation, too!


Families with small children often enjoy the freedom of a full rental house or cottage, so that parents have a kitchen and kids have designated play spaces. Sports teams also find the freedom to meet and focus on their games with this option. Meyer Vacation Rentals has been serving families in this capacity for over 50 years on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Young’s Suncoast is another sponsor with long-time roots in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Both of these companies are locally and family-owned and are professionals at managing short-term rental properties. Kaiser Realty by Wyndham Vacation Rentals is also well-known in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for providing quality lodging for short-term vacation rentals, and they should be. They’ve been at it for nearly 40 years! One of the great things about working with a property management company like these is the customized service and the wide variety of price points, sizes, features and locations to choose from.


As you can tell, whether you want to experience brand-spanking-new, outside the norm, the tried and true or some combination, you can count on Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to deliver the win. We hope you’ll be here soon to enjoy our variety of options and our beautiful beaches too.
