The resort is set on a beautiful piece of property within a golf community (RTJ Trail). Nice cross country trails for biking and running. The resort has a nice outdoor pool area, and tennis facility along the lake. Additionally, a nice short country drive to Auburn University (7 miles). Nice friendly staff that went out of the way to upgrade... More

Stayed here for two nights to play Grand National on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Located a quarter mile from the course, this hotel is a destination in itself. Rooms are comfortable, nice restaurant, sports bar, adult and family pools, 3 fire pits, hut tub.....you get the picture. Staff was very friendly. I highly recommend this whether you're playing...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last night. We happened to book this hotel with reward points. The front desk service was wonderful and we had a lovely stay in a very nice room. We will certainly come again. Thank you for the service. Such a beautiful location.

I stayed here during December for Auburn graduation ceremonies. Its a little far from campus, tucked back in a golf community. The hotel was quiet, the room was well appointed and maintained. The bathroom was spacious with a large stand-up shower. The beds were standard Marriott and were comfortable (as they usually are). If I ever find myself in need... More

I am a long time Marriott rewards member and an ambassador of the brand, but this Marriott feel short and for the first time in my travels failed to deliver the Marriott experience.

The amenities are what made the hotel. The pools were nice, the bar areas were well appointed, the free popcorn was cool. The fire pit was very romantic. We stayed the day after Christmas and the hotel was almost empty. We had the place to ourselves, which was nice. The staff spoiled us rotten! We played pool and poker. The... More
