“Beachfront is accurate, but not what you think”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

The Hotel is actually across a very busy street, but the view of the Gulf was wonderful. The hotel was an old Holiday Inn conversion. The Lobby was huge and very nice, the rooms were a generation behind and needed updating. but the rooms were spotless. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. A very serviceable Courtyard.

Room Tip: The neighborhood behind is a little dodgy, the Gulf-side is preferable, but will cost more. Ask for...

From the moment we checked in til the moment we checked out the staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make us comfortable and very welcome. We arrived early on March 24.2013 (about 1pm), i wasn't sure if a room would be available, but we were given a room right away. Yay! Check in was smooth and carts were provided for our baggage. Our room was clean and welcoming. The beds were not too soft, and not too hard, and there were soft pillows galore. We had brought our own just in case, but they were not needed. We had brought 4 bikes with us and after scoping out the parking lot there wasn't much in the ways of locking them up. I went to the desk and asked and the man working there where we could lock them up, he said to put them in the office. That was a HUGE help as locking them on the carrier was going to be a pain. I couldn't believe they would offer space for them. I felt a little bad as the bikes are cruiser bikes and took up quite a bit of space. They assured me it was fine and were super nice each time we bothered them to get them. So i cant say enough about the office staff...but they were top notch and were patient with all the questions i asked about the casinos. We were traveling with our teens and wanted to hit a few casinos, they directed us to one that had a kid friendly arcade. The maintenance workers and cleaning staff were also very friendly, and were greeted with a smile and friendly hello from each. The hotel with interior rooms and with all the help around i felt very safe and at ease letting my 13, and 15 year old with autism travel around the hotel by themselves. The grounds were clean and parking was abundant. Getting in and out of the hotel into traffic was easy. The gym was fantastic! The cardio machines were comparable to the ones i pay for at my gym. Three treadmills, 2 ellipticals, 1 recumbent bike, 1 stationary bike, and free weights..its all you really need to get your burn on. The pool was too cold for my husband and i to get in, my sons however got in. If i was going to complain about anything it would be the fact the pool was not heated, thus the Jacuzzi was overrun with toddlers. I didn't care, i was there just to soak up some rays anyhow and wasn't interested in getting in the pool or jacuzzi anyhow. I have 2 other small complaints. One would be the lack of a microwave in the room. There is one in the lobby but going down from the fourth floor to the first to microwave popcorn was a bit of a bother but nothing too huge to complain about. The other would be the amount of full size towels given per day. You are given 4, and maybe im a bit of a towel hog, as i use one to wrap my hair up in, and the other to dry off with. Plus i was traveling with three others, well it would have been nice to have more on hand. In the scheme of things these are really small things and in the case of the towels, i am sure the cleaning staff would have been accommodating had i asked for additional towels. All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. Thank you to the staff at Marriott for making us feel at home.

After reading some of the comments i thought i would remark on the complaints about the train...We had our fan on, on the Ac and unless you are a light sleeper you wont be bothered. The internet seemed fine for me, actually a lot better then some of the wifi in hotels i have been in, i wouldn't say it is as strong as my connection at home, but it was tolerable and could stream netflix and hulu, and you tube wasnt sluggish either. Hope that helps.

Each and every year this Courtyard Marriott Gulfport Beachfront Hotel allows two (2) large groups to take ALL of otheir rooms. They do not give the general public even a CHANCE to stay one (1) night at their facility.

Consumers think that they should be able to stay at this hotel during the special week of Cruising on the Coast held in the month of October every year.

But, they allow the same people to take the rooms each year, and do not give any concern to the general public.

Room Tip: During the Cruising on the Coast in October every year, this hotel is booked. They only provide the...

Nice hotel, situated directly across from the beach. Great location, and close to many restaurants. The employees are all quite friendly and lots of can "can do" attitude.

The negative... is the anemic online connectivity. It is just dreadful!!! Slower than the old-fashioned dials up from those old 56k modems. There are two wireless networks, both are slower than molasses, and an incredible deterrent for business travelers.

My room overlooked the pool (which is not the preferred view). Definitely heard a few trains in the middle of the night, but was easily able to get right back to sleep.

Nice flat screen TVs, but hotel doesn't subscribe to an HD package, so it basically SD 16x9.

The breakfast buffet looked wonderful, but because of the high price, opted to eat elsewhere.

This hotel is located right across the street from the beautiful beach in Gulfport. We loved the location, enjoyed relaxing in the large, open lobby, and found our room to be both clean and comfortable. This was our first time in Gulfport but we'll definitely be back when we have time to enjoy it more.

The train noise was so far away, we strained to hear it. The beds were comfy, room was clean. Wished the windows would open. The staff was so friendly and helpful, from offering to store our bicycles behind the front desk, to coming right to our room to fix our tv so we could watch their video from Hurricane Katrina. Ben (maintenance/tech support) was so friendly - we felt like he was family after only a few minutes :) Close to the beach. Recommended.

If you like hearing the train whistle all night long, then this is the hotel for you! Hotel walls are paper thin. Expected better from a Courtyard. Plus breakfast was a zoo. Not enough staff to clean tables in the dining area.
