“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This was a very nice hotel. The room was not overly large but there was a small sofa as well as a king size bed. The vanity is outside of the bathroom so it's easier for two people to get ready at one time. There was a roll out table/desk and a refrigerator. The only complaint is the lack of free breakfast. They have a "Bistro" that serves breakfast. I didn't eat there but the prices were quite high. The hotel is not on the beach but the price was much more reasonable than the hotels with a beach view.

The people and service here are top notch. The Hotel is new and the rooms are great. Our room has a separate bedroom, and a kitchenette. Very nice free breakfast every morning. Did I mention the staff are great?

This was one of the nicest hotel rooms I have been in. The room was very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I will try to stay here again on our next stay. It is so convenient to everything.

We stayed at Courtyard by Marriot Gulf Shores May 28-29. The hotel was in a great location. My daughter and I arrived early and was able to check right in the hotel in a matter of minutes. The staff was helpful and very friendly. The rooms were very nice and clean and spacious. I was little hesitant about booking at a hotel that was not right on the beach but I'm very glad I chose the Courtyard by Marriot. We will stay here again. The pool was the perfect size and my daughter loved it.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor very quiet.

We stayed here for 6 days at the end of April 2013. In town to work our exhibit at a local boat show.

The property met all of our expectations for a Marriott Courtyard hotel. The room rate was reasonable. The room was large enough, with the usual mini-fridge for our dinner leftovers. Housekeeping did a good job of cleaning the room. The front desk staff was efficient and professional. We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area.

The property, BTW, is also very convenient. It's about 5 miles north of the Gulf beaches. It's situated between two large shopping centers - one with a large Publix supermarket, the other with movie theater, a Bed, Bath & Beyond, and several chain restaurants.

Also, just up the road, we went to the Cactus Cafe Mexican restaurant on the recommendation of one of the ladies at the front desk. Food was great, service was quick and it was busy all night -- must be popular with the locals!
