“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I've stayed here several times. The front desk staff is always super-helpful. Housekeeping is average. I had one problem, which was speedily rectified. It's a pretty standard Courtyard, but within walking distance to two great restaurant/bars. There's also a restaurant for breakfast there and a lobby bar.

Room Tip: Nice to have a beach view.

The staff is friendly, there is no doubt about that, but this is an old hotel that has been fairly poorly renovated. The carpet seems cheap and old, the air conditioner is loud, and the room layouts are kind of boxy and dated. Plus if you are not on the beachfront side of the hotel, you will hear fairly loud music and little kids playing in the pool until fairly late (11pm or so). To be honest, this might not be a bad hotel for a family on vacation to stay in (although there are probably nicer hotels to be had) but this is a truly terrible hotel for anybody on business to stay in.

Room Tip: Definitely try to get a beach facing room, and if you do have to be on the rear side of the hotel ne...

The outside looks grand with the gulf view beckoning as soon as you step outside your car. The entry gives the impression of luxury, then when you get into your room you are let down by the common attributes and ponder why you didn't stay at a cheaper hotel that offers about the same accommodations at half the price. Being it was the first stay at a Courtyard by Marriott, I wasn't aware that they offered any services (ie breakfast in the lobby) I still don't know if they do, but I am assuming they did because I saw someone talking about the 'breakfast area' to another hotel patron. On another note, my two daughters enjoyed the outdoor pool. Next time I will probably travel the extra 15 minutes into Biloxi.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper gulf view room. I didnt think about it until we got into the room :/

Room overlooked the beach. Walking distance to several very nice restaurants. The desk clerk was very helpful in providing suggestions for good places to eat. Quiet area. Only stayed one night as a stopover to New Orleans but would definitely stay again.

I recently had a 1 day business trip there to Gulfport. Stayed here at the Marriott. The staff was very helpful on things to do and suggested awesome restaurants. Even comped me some free water and got me a free ride to the local casino. Clean affordable room on the beach and outstanding people. Highly recommend. Free breakfast there too! In fact they upgraded me to a larger corner suite for free upon arrival.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the ocean! You will be glad you did.

We have stayed here twice. Is perfectly located right across the street from the beach. Quiet location, amenities are good, pool is an oasis, staff is very helpful. Close to great restaurants and shopping. Will stay again!

Room Tip: Corner suites are huge!

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.
