I returned to Auburn for a family visit and stayed at the Marriott again for the pool complex. The room was in good shape with a very comfortable bed and a nice balcony overlooking the pool. The staff was friendly at both check in and check out. As has been common everytime I stay here, the TV signal on many... More

This place is simply stunning, amazing, not enough good adjectives! The room was above my expectations in every aspect. And the food, holy cow! If you're eating here, order the ribs. I've had ribs from sea to shining sea, these were by far the best ribs I ever put in my mouth. the most meat I've ever had on ribs.... More

We were visiting Auburn University and decided to stay here. Gorgeous surroundings with hiking trails, golf, tennis & pool. Clean room, comfy bed, nice staff. Enjoyed pool restaurant (WaterWorks), nice and relaxing after a long day...with delicious food and drink. In the morning, I wish there was cappachino available but I guess the demand isn't there in Alabama.

Gave them another try. Much better. Very friendly and helpful. Great place to stay. My last visit must have been a bad weekend. Would stay again. Really well kept. Try the executive suite. Worth the little bit extra. Very roomy. Pool area really nice.

Very clean and we were well greeted. Rooms are spacious and have large bathrooms. Staff has been great. One bad thing is water in shower. Changes frequently from hot to cold to hot. Was a little annoying. All in all, a very good stay and would stay here again.

While we were in Auburn we always stayed at the Marriott. The hotel is always clean and the rooms are nicely appointed. The food in the hotel in has never disappointed and the bar is a fun place to watch a game or celebrate after a win. We have stayed a couple of extra days during the summer months to... More

We stayed at this resort one night while visiting family in the area. We were sorry we didn't stay longer. The grounds were expansive, interesting and pretty, with many hiking trails and places to bicycle. There were tennis courts and a huge water park area with pools, waterfalls and more. There were lots of covered terraces with tables and chairs... More
