This was our first visit to Gulf Shores. I saw the good reviews for the Courtyard by Marriott and even though we would have preferred to be closer to the beach I decided on staying our 3 nights here. The room was very spacious and the front desk very friendly and cordial. I was extremely disappointed in the floors of... More

When I first walked in the staff was really nice and greeted us I was impressed by how big the rooms were compared to other Marriott hotels. The problems came in the morning the shower had a clogged that drained so slowly after 5 minutes I was in a legit bath, not to mention the dust and dirt in the... More

This hotel provided a comfortable retreat from the beachy area. It has a lovely outdoor pool (no hot tub, unfortunately), and all of the usual Courtyard features, like the Bistro and the Market and a comfortable lobby/lounge. Housekeeping was a bit off -- they forgot to leave towels, so I ended up supplementing with towels from the exercise room --... More

This was my first stay at a Marriott property but not my last. This hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and courteous and the decor was very nice as well. I wish there would have been more dining selections but for the price, it was a good experience.

The hotel is a basic Marriott courtyard, the location is in easy walking distance to (strip mall type) shopping, restaurants and Publix which shares the same access. The rooms were as expected, perhaps a little more sqft then in city but very clean. A large movie theater also shared the same entrance and is a very short walk. Also no... More

This hotel is located in walking distance from shopping, movie theater, and restaurants. It's about 10 min from the beach and 5 min away from the outlet mall. Very clean and friendly staff. I only wished we had a microwave in our room and free breakfast. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

The hotel was clean. The location is the best part of this place. It's located within walking distance from shopping, food, and the movies. It was close enough to the beach to get there in about 10 minutes but far enough to be away from the tourist areas. I personally prefer not to stay in the tourist areas.

Me and my wife stayed here for Mothers Day and we both was very pleased. The room was nice and neat. The three days that we stayed they cleaned our room and put fresh towels in everyday. We stayed in a room that had a balcony and that was so cool. Big lobby, nice pool, awesome food and drink bar.... More

We had our first problem ten minutes after arriving. We checked into our room only to see that one of the beds had clearly been laid on. The pillows were crumpled and the bedspread was obviously moved. Immediately, the front desk called and said they needed to move us to another room because the tv did not work in our... More

The staff was very friendly and my husband was able to checkin early due to a rained out fishing trip. The room was clean, plenty of parking, and a good central location. The only complaint I have is that our satellite didn't work (seems common on the reviews).
