“Very nice Courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Last night I stayed this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel faces the ocean, and there is a huge beach-keep in mind that there is a street between the hotel and the beach. The lobby was large, of course it was remodeled after hurricane Katrina. It has a nice bar, and they serve a nice breakfast. The outdoor pool is large, and there is a hot tub. The room and bathroom were clean, but nothing fancy. The hotel is close to restaurants and casinos. We had dinner at the Half Shell Oyster House and it was outstanding (I highly recommend eating there). The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a train that passes near the hotel(several blocks away), but it didn't bother me. The hotel is a couple of miles from the airport, so there aren't any airport noises. Overall, it's very clean, updated and is in a great location. If you're traveling to Gulfport I recommend staying here.

First let me state that the staff here is wonderful, no doubt about that. The main problem that I had was that I travel...a lot and as such I am a platinum member. During a recent stay I was not given an oceanview room but instead I was across the hall. I did not think much about this although I was a little bummed out. The problem came in the middle of the night while I was trying to sleep. Instead of the sound of the ocean or maybe even traffic, I woke up to the blare of a train whistle coming through. Startling to say the least. To make things worse, a couple hours more another train comes through. This is a very regular occurrence. I noticed where some people have reviewed that they could not hear the train or that they strained to hear it. They must have been lucky enough to either be on the oceanview side or the luxury of being partially deaf. I am sure that if there was anyway possible that the great staff would have silenced the train...the staff was really that good, but alas they couldn't but it is because of them that they get a Very Good rating instead of a poor rating.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean view if possible...by the way, good luck sleeping through the train.

Your wonderful words about our staff puts a smile on my face. Unfortunately the train is a thorn in all of our sides. At this point all of us would love to move those tracks far away from the hotel. Other then that, so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you can come back and get a gulfview room.

We went for a quick weekend get away and found a gem of a hotel. Every hotel has beds and bathrooms but few have personality. This staff made an ordinary stay extra ordinary from check in to breakfast and the friendly bar tender all made this limited service hotel anything but!! We look forward to our next quick get away!!!

I arrived to the hotel around 1 am hoping to catch a few hours of sleep before a 9 am meeting. Little did I know that a freight train runs every two hours (2:30, 4:30, 6:30) during the night with horns blazing. Good luck getting any sleep. In addition the air conditioning was just as loud as the train when it cycled on and off all night. I stayed in room 315 which is way to close to the ice machine and coke machines which are in the hall way (not in a closed in room) so between the trains, the AC and the ice machine cycling all night there was not much sleep. The rooms need updating, the carpet is so thin, even with socks on you feel the floor through the carpet. If I ever find myself in Gulfport I will stay somewhere else - Gold Status with Marriott doesn't mean that I will always stay at a Marriott, I do need to be able to sleep!

Room Tip: ask for a room that doesn't back onto the rail road tracks.

Absolutely wonderful hotel and experience. The staff was friendly and courteous. My room was clean and had a view of the beach! Highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing weekend at the beach with a couple of fun nights at the casinos mixed in!

Rooms are waaaaaay overpriced.... Our room was dirty and for you business travelers there is no way to secure your company laptop... Period. No one did anything to correct anything and I will NEVER stay here again .... Look for different accommodations there are plenty of better alternatives! And tiny flying bugs!

The Hotel is actually across a very busy street, but the view of the Gulf was wonderful. The hotel was an old Holiday Inn conversion. The Lobby was huge and very nice, the rooms were a generation behind and needed updating. but the rooms were spotless. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. A very serviceable Courtyard.

Room Tip: The neighborhood behind is a little dodgy, the Gulf-side is preferable, but will cost more. Ask for...
