Nice room on concierge level with Marriott quality bedding. Loved the first night at Swampers listening to the VERY talented Michael Ledbetter. The hotel, however, was disappointing in our overall enjoyment. During the 2 days we spent on the property, Swampers had no ranch dressing (and it was chicken wing night), no draft beer and they were out of the...

I just love this hotel. I love the layout, the view of the TN River, the ease of getting there, the balcony, the work out room, the local newspaper. There are a bunch of things I don't like but I can't remember what they are because the stuff I love outweighs the little idiosyncrasies. Breakfast is delish. Those grits! Will...

What a great place to stay! So close to everything. It is a lovely hotel with a spa and beautiful pool. It's a great place for couples and families. The price wasn't bad either. It wasn't my first time to stay there and it probably won't be my last.

The hotel is older but very well maintained. The amenities galore. Nice bar area, entertainment, punctual room service. Have access due to member level to concierge lounge. Staff was extremely friendly and the food was very good. Good selection. The room we booked had a balcony overlooking the pool and Tennessee River and that was very pleasant. I suggest a...

Sometimes you may expect more than you should and this was the case with the Marriott Shoals Hotel and Spa. 1) we paid the extra $25 a night for the river view and yes you can see the river ( about 300 yards away) but there is also a construction site directly in front of the view so save and...

We normally stay in Hilton hotels, but opted for the Marriott when we decided to stop here at the last minute when traveling south to florida. It's about 30 miles off I-65, but the area is worth visiting. We had no idea what Muscle Schoals area was all about until we checked into the Marriott. They have the documentary on...

My family and I stayed one night as we were here for my mother's funeral. The staff was very cordial and attentive. We had a very nice room overlooking the river. It was January so the hotel was not full and not too crowded. We've been here before during summer months and it's very crowded and noisy. The resort is...

We took a short trip to the area and stayed at the hotel. We enjoyed our stay and would consider coming back. My only complaint is they have a live band downstairs and the noise can travel to the rooms. That was not something I expected from this property. Everything was very clean and the staff was very helpful.

We had very good experience with check in and room was very nice. However there was some type meeting going on that made it loud and crowded in lobby area. Table set up right next to elevators so we could not get past. Also we ate at the restaurant and bar. Food was good but menu was very limited and...
