My check in was seamless, I was treated like a VIP from the moment I arrived. Had a large first floor room that overlooked the pool. The room was clean and had...

We stayed at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel & Conference Center at Grand National for one night in March 2017 to attend a wedding. The wedding was in downtown Opelika, which is about 15 minutes from this resort. The resort itself is surrounded by a golf course, with attractive, newly built neighborhoods and some really pretty lakes. Wish we had...

This Marriott property is fantastic, a real resort in the sprawling woods of Central Alabama. I was surprised to say the least the first time I stayed at this Opelika resort. It is connected to a Robert Trent Jones trail golf course and it goes without saying if you're a golfer then stay here. But for non-golfers, or business travelers...

The property was excellent; the staff were very friendly and responsive; the rooms were spacious and well kept; the food was excellent; especially liked the availability of popcorn for snacks. Every room had a balcony and was well appointed. The banquet facility was great as was the service and food.
