Simply loved the property. The service, from the bellman to the front desk to the bar outside to the Fairways for breakfast was flawless. It's a bit far from Auburn (maybe 12 minutes) but if you are there for golf, it's perfect. We be back for sure on our next trip to NOLA.

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.

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.
