Excellent service at check-in and check-out; the staff was all really friendly whenever we walked by. Southern Hospitality still endures! Lacey stood out for being efficient and super sweet! Our room was smallish, but the bed was super comfortable, the TV and fridge were great, and most of all, the AC was excellent! The Bistro has a small menu but...

We stayed here a couple nights when we were in town to look for a rental property to purchase. Since we weren't there for a beach vacation, this hotel was perfect for us. It was very clean, modern, had lots of amenities, and right off of Gulf Shores Pkwy.

The hotel was in close proximity to the beach. The staff was very friendly. Very close to shopping and restaurant and the movie theater is right next door...perfect for rainy afternoons. The rooms were very clean and the hotel has a washer/dryer onsite which is perfect for multiple

We had such a great experience at the courtyard in NOLA I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS STAY. Let me start by saying I made a list the first night we arrived because the room was so dirty and gave them the opportunity to clean it while we were at the beach the next day. They didn't. Which really...

Room was big but not well kept. Door was broken and tub drain clogged. Its surrounded by a shopping center so its pretty noisey. Not as clean as should be for almost $200 a night. You can stay much closer to the beach for this price.

I was in Gulf Shores for a business trip and stayed at this location. Although I hadn't made the arrangements, I can tell you I will stay there again the next time I go out to the area. A typical Courtyard Marriott, this was neat, clean and full of friendly people. The front desk never failed to say "welcome back"...

We went to the beach alot so we used a lot of towels but they were very accommodating. I will stay here again. Great location and close to a lot of restaurants and a target.

The hotel itself is great. I stay at the same style when I'm traveling for business in other states and this one was clean like the others. The only strange thing was that, even after having the 'do not disturb' sign on the door and having sensitive personal items on the bed, we came back our last night to see...
