“Great Place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Great location to all around Gulf Shores. Staff is very friendly and responsive. beautifully remodeled hotel. Lobby is fantastic and inviting. Pool is large and clean. Fitness center if fantastic. It has 2 treadmills, an elliptical and free weights. Large Publix grocery store next door and and a shopping center on the other side. I will definitely stay here again when I am in the area.

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

This was a very nice hotel. The room was not overly large but there was a small sofa as well as a king size bed. The vanity is outside of the bathroom so it's easier for two people to get ready at one time. There was a roll out table/desk and a refrigerator. The only complaint is the lack of free breakfast. They have a "Bistro" that serves breakfast. I didn't eat there but the prices were quite high. The hotel is not on the beach but the price was much more reasonable than the hotels with a beach view.

The people and service here are top notch. The Hotel is new and the rooms are great. Our room has a separate bedroom, and a kitchenette. Very nice free breakfast every morning. Did I mention the staff are great?

This was one of the nicest hotel rooms I have been in. The room was very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I will try to stay here again on our next stay. It is so convenient to everything.

We stayed at Courtyard by Marriot Gulf Shores May 28-29. The hotel was in a great location. My daughter and I arrived early and was able to check right in the hotel in a matter of minutes. The staff was helpful and very friendly. The rooms were very nice and clean and spacious. I was little hesitant about booking at a hotel that was not right on the beach but I'm very glad I chose the Courtyard by Marriot. We will stay here again. The pool was the perfect size and my daughter loved it.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor very quiet.

We stayed here for 6 days at the end of April 2013. In town to work our exhibit at a local boat show.

The property met all of our expectations for a Marriott Courtyard hotel. The room rate was reasonable. The room was large enough, with the usual mini-fridge for our dinner leftovers. Housekeeping did a good job of cleaning the room. The front desk staff was efficient and professional. We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area.

The property, BTW, is also very convenient. It's about 5 miles north of the Gulf beaches. It's situated between two large shopping centers - one with a large Publix supermarket, the other with movie theater, a Bed, Bath & Beyond, and several chain restaurants.

Also, just up the road, we went to the Cactus Cafe Mexican restaurant on the recommendation of one of the ladies at the front desk. Food was great, service was quick and it was busy all night -- must be popular with the locals!
