What a beautiful property off the beaten path! And just minutes from Auburn University. When we arrived to check in, they upgraded us to a suite which was an unexpected, yet very pleasant surprise. Our suite was very spacious, clean and with views of the lovely grounds - lake, woods, tennis courts, pool and more. As management replied earlier to... More

Attended a conference here in December 2015. It seems as though out is out in the middle off nowhere! This seemed to be more of a resort than a hotel! The food was excellent even what was ordered through room service. I intend on going back in the summer with my family tho enjoy the enormous pools!

Stayed at the Marriott for one night on a business trip to Alabama. The location is secluded inside of a Marriott real estate development and including many amenities including a Robert Trent Jones golf course. Check in was uneventful and the room was well appointed and clean. Common areas were nicely done with fireplace in the main lobby. We ate... More

Nice hotel, has an outside pool. It's very close to the Grand National Gold Club. Don't take the hotel van, you will get to the golf course late ! Clean and welcoming staff. The restaurants on location are not worth it.

Just an overnight stay for us. We found all of the staff to be very nice. The rooms are very dated and just not up to Marriott standards. We did expect to find a fine dining restaurant and a nice bar verses a sports bar / restaurant and another casual restaurant. The grounds are quite impressive even in the winter,... More

This is a nice hotel for the visitor to the Auburn area who wants full amenities...restaurants, 3 pools, gym, lounges, etc. If you are playing golf at Grand National the Marriott is the place to stay it's right there. The staff was very friendly, and helpful.

My whole family went down for a weekend in Auburn and decided to stay here. The grounds driving in are quite impressive, and the pool area seems very promising.
