“Very nice location, very good staff, currently they are upgrading the hotel.”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

The staff was great on check in, very quick and friendly. The hotel was clean, and they are in the middle of performing upgrades, the only negative in entire stay, they were storing things under stairwell, that worried me because if there were a fire i was afraid that material might mean the stairwell would be blocked by burning material, i hope they stop that practice.

This is a very nice place to stay.

We decided to visit Destin with our 11 years old son. I am a hotel lover and usually stay 5 star hotels for my vacation. However, in Destin, there is no 5 star hotels such as Ritz, Four Seasons etc. I do not like to rent Condo. So after reviewing many web sites/comments etc., I reserved this hotel. It was a great experience!! Yes, it is not Ritz so no free lemonade at the lobby or thick towels by the pool. There is no real restaurant on the property either, but there are good restaurants in a walking distance. Bedding is not as comfortable as 5 start hotels. and also no beach access which may be the biggest negative. You have to drive a few miles to the beach. BUT other than these things, this is a VERY nice hotel. The lobby is updated and modern, the room was very spacious (King suite) super clean and quiet. The staff was extremely helpful. I like the location which is not the middle of noisy Destin area. I highly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure use.

Room Tip: II believe that there are 7 or 8 suites in this hotel. It was a nice size suite but there was no ba...

We came to Destin 2 nights before we were able to check into our condo.... figured being near the ocean was better than being at home. I booked a room in Destin - only to show up and be told that my confirmation number was not correct and they did not have a room for us. I was panicked! I quickly did a search for available hotels and LUCKILY the Courtyard had a room available. It looked clean and nice online.... so we booked it as we were driving to it. So happy we stayed here. The place is clean and nice. The front desk staff was amazingly polite, friendly, and accommodating. The hotel pool provided hours of fun for our five year old twins. At night the pool lights change colors - so cool! This hotel is not on the ocean, but it is a very short drive to public beaches. We drove to the beach both days and it was very easy. We did eat breakfast at the hotel one morning and it was wonderful (about $30 for our family to eat). The hotel elevator is very slow... we found it much faster to climb the 4 flights of stairs instead of waiting.

Clean place, friendly staff, nice pool, near the ocean, near restaurants and grocery stores, a few miles from the total craziness of Destin traffic.

Great place to stay! You won't be disappointed.

We checked into this hotel for five nights, July 29th - August 3rd) after a horrible experience at another hotel in the area. The front desk staff, most notably Graham Baker, went out of their way to ensure that we had a wonderful stay. If I could give this hotel 6 stars, I would. The hotel was clean, the customer service was beyond what was expected, the housekeeping staff did a fabulous job, and the food in the cafe was delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

We chose to book the Courtyard due to its close proximity to Baytown Warf and the walkability to the attractions (10-15) mins. Overall the property was a great experience all around with a wonderful and attentive staff. The management team was superb and overly helpful with all decisions and any questions we asked. When we checked-in the night Manager, Alexander - was more than kind and helpful and continued to be so during our trip. The entire team provided me great comfort!

Room Tip: Walked to Flemings and Marlin Grill. Don't take a cab to Baytown, definitely walkable!

By Marriott standards...not a good property. One elevator did not work. Ceiling in room needs repair. Room includes a "chiller", not a mini-fridge...so food does not stay cold and fresh, and sodas put in there are a little cooler than room temp. This was a cheap touch. Seriously, for the same size, how much more could a mini-fridge cost than a "chiller"??? The fitness center was so poorly equipped, I lost all motivation to use it. As a Gold Elite member of Marriott Rewards, I stay at Marriott a fair amount each year...this was definitely a let down. Compared to other hotels in the area that are available at a lower rate (and likely better offering), I seriously doubt I would bother to return here. Location is a little far from the main area attractions and restaurants.

Room Tip: choose another hotel...

This is my second time staying at this facility. The first time was several years ago...what I walked away from this visit was the kindness of all the staff and cleanliness of the rooms. The housekeeping staff greeted us with warm smiles everyday and if we asked for anything it was never a bother. The front desk staff Bethany, Kaisha, Silvia were wonderful and very helpful. The Bistro on site was just as nice and accommodating. We were lucky to be on the top floor and have a golf course view. The lighted pool and hot tub in the evenings was fun for families. The only complaint I have is we were not happy the facility no longer has direct access to Sandestin areas which we really enjoyed, if you can rectify that one thing you would be a 5 in our book. We spent some time in the new lobby areas because they are very family and business friendly but large enough to accommodate a mixture of business and families. Nice touch on the computers, furniture, and printers. We had to print off a few things and never had to wait! One other small detail please make the elevators go faster! Thanks for helping a little boy have a fun birthday!

Room Tip: If you can get the top floor and golf view go for it!
