Jena and crew were very hospitable while visiting the area for a concert with my son! Room was clean and everyone had a smile. The pool was warm and relaxing. Keep up the good work! See you again soon and GO BLUE!

What a pleasant surprise! This hotel has it all. The public areas are fun and inviting. The Bristo Bar, decor and snack shop put this hotel over the top with these unexpected amenities. The hotel was quiet, the room was large, the decor was very functional and welcoming, and the beds were very comfortable. It was an exceptional experience and... More

So nice and clean. Rooms were great, beds are comfy and the pool area is beautiful, nice for a smaller hotel. Close to most major attractions such as beach, Lambert's Cafe, Lulu's, Orange Beach, The Hangout & Battleship Memorial Park

Went here on a basketball trip for my son's AAU tournament team. Hotel staff was very friendly with all the basketball players running around, no issues with accommodating everyone. Perfect place for cheap stay without the cheap look. Everything was clean, pool area was nice, and good shopping and restaurant next door.

Nothing wrong with this place. Marriott creates a consistent product and this one falls right in line. Food and drink at the bar is enough to keep you going a little while longer and the staff friendly.

I had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Gulf Shores. The beds were very comfortable and only about 10 minutes from the beach. The hotel is walking distance to several restaurants and a movie theatre.

Although it isn't beach front, it's not far from the best. Staff was nice and helpful, seemed to be the cheapest, nice, hotel. Would definitely book another room with them if returning to Gulf Shores.

Stayed here on my recent beach trip. Wonderful location, near a theater and shopping but literally like 8 minutes from beach access. It's nice to be so close to the beach, but still feel like you can escape to a nice hotel near other attractions. The pool and outdoor area is excellent and perfectly kept!! They were doing construction during... More

Stayed for a week on business. Very friendly service both at check-in and out. Had breakfast 2 times. Service great, food quality just average. Starbucks available. Very clean room, properly stocked, good service 1 time, except floor was not vacuumed (I dropped stuff on floor). Would return and recommend.
