Nice clean and well kept hotel but no easy access from a major highway. The rooms are a bit small but all have a private balcony and nice bathrooms with granite counters tops and separate tub and shower. There are two parking lots with complementary parking a short distance from the hotel entrance. There are also a few rooms on... More

Thank you so much for your review. We loved having the Aggie fans staying with us. It's true that our location is remote. We like to think that it adds to the experience. We wouldn't have such lovely views of our lake and golf course without this location. Also, always keep in mind that we have a shuttle service that... More

Just finished a 5 day stay and I must say that the next time I return to Opelika, I will stay elsewhere. I will start with the good. The staff at the hotel was exceptional. The outdoor pool is new and looked very nice, however, in November this was not real important. The hotel is about 5 mile out of... More

The Marriott at Grand National in Opelika could not have done a better job of hosting our 50th anniversary party for over a 100 guests. Every detail was taken care of by Sharon Jones(Catering Sales Manager) and the Marriott staff. The party went excellently smooth. The food was delightfully presented, fresh, hot and on time. Every attendee we spoke to... More

Resort quality property. Multiple pools, indoor and outdoor jacuzzis, water slide, tennis courts, etc. Rooms are fairly large but hotel decor needs to be updated. Staff very customer oriented. Front desk clerk, Porsche, went out of her way to get our stay started out on the right foot.

The hotel and property are down a winding road, traversing woodlands that make you forget about all the stressors in your day. The staff is friendly, room comfortable, dining staff excellent. The bar at the poolside serves terrific food and has very knowledgeable staff!

Stayed here with 7 friends in the area to play golf at the Grand National facility. Good rooms, good service, good food, convenient to golf courses. Allowed us a late check out so that we could all clean up after golf before flying home, which was a much appreciated extra. Nice pool area, separate "adult" pool adjacent to bar. All... More
