Me and my two sisters stayed here last weekend and by the end of the trip, we were referring to it as "heaven." If it hadn't been for work on Monday we would have stayed one more night. The three pools and two hot tubs were nice. Outdoor bar was fun. Food was great! We got the king suite which... More

Nice to wake in the morning, throw the curtains back, and get a sunrise through the trees of the course. This hotel does a pretty good job. The people at the desk, parking the cars, etc. were as friendly as any hotel staff I've ever engaged. Nice folks eager to help. The hotel was slow so they had time on... More

Stayed here for a wedding. Everyone seemed to have a great time and the hotel had everything we needed. The staff was great. Everyone seemed to be extremely friendly and very helpful. The hotel beds were very comfortable and the rooms seemed fairly clean. The only con I had, was a water cup was full of dust/dirt when we arrived.

Pros: Clean and comfortable rooms; friendly employees Cons: Housekeeping can be noisy in the mornings (knocking on doors saying "housekeeping")...they don't appear to be aware that some people may be trying to sleep; room was not serviced during a two-night stay; slow elevators The housekeeping issues need to be resolved and this would be a five-star rating.

We stayed here during Auburn U move in Day and was blown away by the activities available to our family. The customer service was some of the best we have experienced. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. A great introduction to Auburn and the state of Alabama.

We reserved two rooms one year ahead and our view is the air conditioning units! It's a beautiful hotel, with beautiful grounds and the room is very nice but the view has ruined all the good. Staff at check in was very nice. We checked in one of our two rooms a day early.

It's close to Auburn University and has one of the most beautiful drives to the hotel with its rolling hills and beautiful natural landscape. I found it very refreshing.

I recently stayed at the Auburn Marriott Grand National and am already eager to return this weekend! I work at a similar property in Montgomery and after staying with them it put our hotel to shame! The staff were all wonderfully accomodating, kind, and knowlegable. The rooms were beautiful and very clean, and the pool facilities were fabulous. Can't wait... More

Beautiful facilities, amazing pool area - very close to the RTJ golf club. Only problem was that housekeeping 'forgot' - did not clean our room and make the bed one morning! Other than that one mishap all was well and would recommend staying here if you're golfing the RTJ Golf Trail in the area.

The rooms have been nicely renovated and have a fresh feel. Everyone was very helpful. The pool area could have been nice- it had separate adult and children areas, but there were kids in the adult pool who had parents at the bar. Why bother have adult area if no one enforces? There are several hiking trails around the property,... More
