Wife and I had a 1 night stay for a quick trip to beach. Close to a lot of shopping, theater, food. Nice clean hotel, staff was nice, no issues. Short distance to the public beach. Take a left from hotel, go to end of 59, take a right and in a mile or so there are public beach access...

This is a great place to stay if you want to stay near the beach but want to save a little money by not staying right on the beach. This hotel is right by shopping and a movie theater. It's between the outlet mall and the beach so it's a nice central location. The room was very nice and clean....

Craft farms is a great location. Close enough for a short drive to beaches. Shopping and great restaurants within walking distance. Staff was friendly although at checkout staff was under trained. Front desk made us wait while he served coffee to other staff. Once he came to see what we needed, he commented that he wished we would have waited...

In town for a youth basketball tournament over the weekend. Despite it being the 1st weekend of the summer vacation for the schools around here, it was a great trip. Hotel is in a great location close to supermarket, food, and 4 miles from the beaches. It was clean and had great staff. Will definitely be back in the near...

Booked this property for a last minute 1-night beach trip on Memorial Day weekend. For an affordable alternative to beach-front hotels or condos this location was great - just a 5 minute drive to the beach as well as several popular restaurants and entertainment venues. A Publix grocery store was a 2-minute walk from the hotel. We opted for frozen...

This was my first trip to the area and really appreciated feeling welcomed by the staff. Everyone took the time to make sure I was comfortable. I don't need to write a long review as what I received was great service and comfort. When I retunr to the area, I will stay at this hotel.

I travel to Gulf Shores frequently for business and I typically stay here when I am in town. The staff is always very friendly and attentive. The hotel is clean and well maintained and it is close to many dining choices and attractions. Highly recommend

Nicely appointed Marriott with excellent front desk personnel. Extremely comfortable room and surroundings located centrally to Gulf Shores attractions. Only disappointment was absence of any type of complimentary breakfast accompanied by high-priced "bistro" food options in lobby.

Stopped in GS for a night to check it out on our way to Texas. Stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott. What a great place. Clean, comfy, and convenient. We even had a cute balcony with a table and two chairs. The staff was so friendly and informative. Would definitely stay there again.
