I got this hotel on priceline for 102 a night, much better than the 189 weeknd rate. The pool was nice as well as the room. Nice large bathroom. Had beach towels to use. Two computers in the lobby to use. It was a great choice if you are not staying on the beach.

We stayed at this property recently for the Alabama State Track Meet. The hotel is located in a nice little shopping complex with a couple of neat places for dinner or dessert as well as a Publix and a Target. The check-in staff were very friendly and made the process relatively painless. Our room was on the smallish side but was clean and functional. The a/c system kept the room at a very comfortable temperature and worked flawlessly. The bathroom was very small but functioned very well. The beds were comfortable and the linens were of good quality.
Positives for this hotel were the free WiFi which was outstanding, the friendliness of the staff, and the large lobby area with comfortable seating. Negatives were the slight musty, mildewy smell when we first went into the room, the annoying 5 second delay from when you flipped the bathroom light switch until the light came on, the noisy bathroom fan, poor quality and limited quantity of the amenities in the bathroom, and the lack of a free continental breakfast like most of Courtyard's competitors have.
Overall, this was a good, mid-range hotel in a convenient location. While Gulf Shores is a beach destination, we were not down there for the beach so we weren't inconvenienced by being some distance from the gulf. We also could not avail ourselves of the outstanding golf courses that are close by this property. For what we were in Gulf Shores for this hotel worked out very nicely for us.

The room was quite spacious and very comfortable. Very clean as well. We were a little disappointed when we arrived and found out we were on the first floor when we asked for an upper level. It actually ended up being no big deal when we found out our patio had a little walk way straight out to the pool. It turned out to be convenient. We had bought a shopping package along with our room and was a little distraught to find that none of the staff seemed to know what all our package was to include. Everything was eventually worked out, but we felt the issues we had could have been avoided had the staff been properly prepared. All and all, I would recommend, and would stay here again on a short stay.
