Reviewed August 5, 2013

we had a three night stay everything was wonderful. Couldn't expect better service even from a more expensive hotel. the next time my family is in Gulf Shores we will stay here. The staff was exemplary. You could spend more money but not get better service. And the beds are fantastic.

When you go out of town there are things that make a difference. Service that is excellent even when they are busy. Areas to rest, play, and ambiance. Then there are creature comforts like nice bedding, a place to do computing work, a fridge, microwave, coffee pot. Nice toiletry samples. The extra towels. Well that is all just the beginning. This place has an in house Star bucks and grill. YUM. The pool area has really great seating with tables and umbrellas and sitting pits. There is a top notch weight room. Then you need something extra like to do laundry, no problem, they have it. Want to go shopping? the Pelican Mall next door. 8 minutes from the beach and the best part, the prices are great. I am a Marriot member, and business traveler. I have seen it all. You need to try this place out.

Room Tip: First floor has all you need staying down here just feels more connected. Call for off season deals...

This hotel was recently renovated & is fabulous! The decor is very accommodating and modern. I have 2 children and this property was very family-friendly. We had a ton of shopping options right next door, as well as many kid activities right down the street. We went to the beach each day we were there and it, literally, took us 8 min! This is an awesome alternative to staying directly on the beach! The grill has great food and the staff was very nice/friendly. I definitely recommend this property.

Room Tip: Several rooms have balconies. I especially liked the ones on the first floor, which lead out to the...

We had a bad day at another hotel and came over to the Courtyard in Gulf Shores. The Staff was soooo polite & professional. They worked out everything to our advantage except my military discount but it was not offered at that time of the month but one of the ladies at the front desk offered us some free tickets for an area water park for our kids. They were very nice. I am a Marriott rewards member and this is one reason why I will continue coming to a Marriott Property. GREAT STAFF.

We recently stayed here for a business meeting. The staff was EXTREMELY accommodating to our needs and went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable. In addition to the great staff, the hotel is located in walking distance of many restaurants, a grocery store, and movie theater. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Regarding One Night Stay at Marriott Courtyard, 3750 Gulf Shores Pkwy, Gulf Shores, AL 36542.

We have a group of 6 staying here. I was put on the third floor...

We were here with a tour, and we need to sleep, since we drive all night. THIS hotel is so LOUD...

The other guests were slamming doors... hollering down the hall... The front desk was notified twice
and someone came up and spoke to the guests but to no avail... as soon as they left, it started up again.

I requested to be moved, but I was told, No Rooms were available. The girl at the front desk stated..

"it's gonna be this way, NOISY, in the entire hotel, that kids were all over".

This is ridiculous....

At least at a Holiday Inn Express, you can get moved to a quiet room...

THIS HOTEL IS NOT ACCOMMODATING WHATSOEVER!

I appreciate your review on our hotel and am sorry your experience was not up to our standards. We stive to provide exceptional customer service to each guest every time but unfortunately we failed to do so in your case.

As was explained, our hotel was sold-out and we were unable to move your guest room as requested. We did speak to the guests involved and requested they keep the noise level down.

Again, I apologize for the noise concerns and hope to win you back as a loyal Marriott guest in the near future.

Best Regards,
Noelle Hall
