Came to Gulf Shoes to shop at the outlet mall with a friend. Good location -about 5 minutes to the mall and 5-10 to beach and restaurants. Staff was friendly and hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms have both fridge and microwave. Located next to Publix grocery store which was very convenient.

First time in Gulf Shores, and we stayed at the Courtyard since it is a Marriott hotel. We have had good experiences with Marriott hotels and this one wasn't any different. There was a little bistro inside. It had the feel of a city hotel. Very clean. The front desk receptionist was really helpful in recommending places to eat and...

Although it was not on the shore, it was near enough to enjoy all the activities but far enough to lend a quiet evening's sleep. We also found that it was quiet later into the morning - probably because there is no complimentary breakfast available. However, there is a cafe in the lobby where a decent breakfast (including Starbucks coffee)...

We always try to stay at Courtyards, due to the consistency of the rooms and service. This one was no exception, and we were very happy with our stay for the week. The staff were great, and we had no complaints. We were worried when two buses of college softball girls stayed a few nights, but they were well behaved...

I reserved a king bed, but they gave me a room with 2 queens. I thought they may offer a cup of coffee in the morning. They sell it! Along with an over priced breakfast. But you will get the smallest refrigerator you ever saw. It doesn't even have a freezer. The staff didn't apologize for messing up my reservation....
