Courtyard Gulfport Beachfront
Ranked #12 of 29 Hotels in Gulfport
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Here are a few points to note before staying here:

Has the cleanliness of a two star hotel
Moldy bathroom areas, but clean enough to use
Towels were rough and smelled like a storage closet
A pizza crust was found under a bed when looking for my shoe
When going to place food in a cabinet I found a previous guests underwear and t-shirt
Proximity to beach is great
Boat rentals directly across the street at marina
Highway is easy to cross with kids
Bring a cooler and a beach mat because this area of beach has no concessions or chairs
Staff
They were a highlight and work hard to help and make the stay nice
Noise
Room doors bang all night and are loud
Guests were loud and with large groups
Exterior noise was very low
Value
At 79 or 99 a night this would be a great value
At 110 or 120 a night it is ok
Anything more than 120 a night or if you do not have a gulf view, another hotel may serve you
better
Could use
Cleaner rooms
Bathroom needs serious cleaning/ recaulking
Washingmachine area floor needs to be cleaner
Put microwaves in the room becuase lobby is not handy to feed kids

Room Tip: Gulf view is a must with double beds

It is a nice facility, well maintained and a friendly staff. Our only complaint is that the basic construction is not adequate for the type of facility that it is. This is a courtyard that serves mainly vacationers, be the families or groups of young people there to enjoy the beach. There is little to no sound proofing of the rooms and it definitely effects your stay. I cannot remember a Marriott facility in a similar location where the noise from the halls and rooms traveled so easily into the other rooms. If you can sleep through a fire drill then this will not bother you. If you are a light sleeper or have difficulty going to sleep you are in for a long night.

While the AC/HT would normally be considered overly noisy, it does drown out the extraneous noise of other guests.

Next visit to the area we will chose some other facility and continue to use Marriott elsewhere. If you really need to be on the beach, do consider the Courtyard.

Room Tip: Definitely specify that the room cannot have a connecting door to another room. sound goes right th...

This is a very well appointed, clean and comfortable hotel in standard Marriott style. We found the bed especially comfortable, although the A/C unit was rather loud.
The location is wonderful- right across the street from the Gulf, with a long stretch of white sandy beach to walk along and an easy walk to Hwy 49 and plenty of restaurants.
One alert: the appetizing looking breakfast buffet is not complimentary, even though many Marriotts do offer a complimentary buffet, and there is no notice posted to warn you that once you serve yourself and sit down you will be presented with a check (9.95 per person)! It was just lucky that I noticed someone standing at a cash register on the other side of the room just as my wife was about to take a plate.

Stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Gulfport Beachfront on our way home to Texas. Had booked a beach front room only to arrive in heavy fog making the view worthless. Hotel was very clean with a friendly staff. Due to the heavy fog we ate at the hotels bar which was very convenient. The hotel was typical Marriott offering nicely appointed rooms.

Our disappointment was not with the hotel but the area in general. We had hoped for a great place to use the beaches and suitable restaurants for a typical beach area. Gulfport is not that place. All the hotels are across from a four lane busy highway making beach access a pain. Eating establishment are along Interstate 10. There is literally no beach type establishments adjacent to the ocean itself. Gulfport is not setup for typical beach vacationing visitors. That said it would be a great place to own property and live there.

Having come from Fort Walton Beach in Florida, Gulfport in general was a disappointment. Will not be returning there for beach time.

Room Tip: If you looking for a great beach vacation go further east into the Florida panhandle.

Very impressed with this hotel on my first trip here. The lobby is huge and the staff is great. The breakfast was great every morning. The rooms were clean and I would highly recommend staying here if in the area.

I was on a visit for business, and the service here was top notch. The front desk was always accommodating and helpful. Due to travel confusion, my sundries were left in the room. The hotel neatly folded and packed everything for me and had the bags ready for pick up. This made a possible logistics problem, no problem. Would stay here again based on one day and service.

The room with double beds are nice and spacious. Most of my team was sick after eating dinner at the restaurant. My buttock was bitten three times and another area swollen after getting into bed. I remember the stings but couldn't find anything in my pants or bed? Never again will I stay here.
